Grade the Wolverines: Your chance to rate Michigan's performance against Illinois
Daniel Brenner | AnnArbor.com
Michigan football writer Kyle Meinke passed out grades and -- surprise, surprise -- almost everyone made the honor roll.
Now it's your chance to grade the Wolverines.
Denard Robinson ran wild and was efficient in the passing game. Michigan scored early and often and was able to have its way with the Fighting Illini basically from start to finish.
Led by linebacker Jake Ryan's 11 tackles 1.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles Michigan beat up Illinois and walked away with a shutout.
When the other team only kicks off once, it's hard to get a gauge on the kick return game. Brendan Gibbons was solid once again and Michigan returned three punts for 56 yards.
Tough to criticize the guys making the decisions when the team wins 45-0...or is it?
Put it all together, and what do you get?
