ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The unranked Michigan Wolverines have rallied around quarterback Denard Robinson.

Robinson apologized publicly to fans and privately to teammates for turning the ball over five times in Saturday night's 13-6 loss at Notre Dame.

Wolverines coach Brady Hoke says he has made sure Robinson understands he was only one of 69 players who made the trip, telling him every coach and player was responsible.

Running back Fitzgerald Toussaint says Robinson told teammates "it won't happen again," following a loss that dropped the team to 2-2 and out of The Associated Press college football poll.

Michigan started the season ranked No. 8 with Robinson leading a team that went 11-2 last year in Hoke's debut in charge of college football's winningest program.
