Denard Robinson sheds light on Mark Dantonio quote that adorns Michigan's weight room
Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Monday that his team, which has lost four straight games against Michigan State, doesn't need any extra motivation for this weekend's in-state showdown.
But they're using it anyway.
Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson said Monday there's a quote from MSU coach Mark Dantonio that adorns the team's weight room wall. He couldn't recall the exact quote, but appeared to be referring to this, which reads: "I'm from Ohio, that's why beating Michigan is such a kick for me. We will continue to do it ... I promise you that!"
"He said that he's got some roots in Ohio, and he's going to continue to beat us because he hates the University of Michigan," Robinson said during a Sirius-XM Sports radio interview. "We take that to heart, and we put that in our weight room.
"We accept that challenge. Every time we go in the weight room, we look at that. And it's in green and white, and we don't like those colors at all."
No. 23 Michigan (4-2, 2-0) hosts Michigan State (4-3, 1-2) at 3:30 p.m. Saturday on BTN.
