Quick hits from football news conference

Coach Brady Hoke, junior quarterback Denard Robinson and senior defensive tackle Mike Martin sat down with the media Wednesday to discuss practice this week and Saturday's game against Nebraska. Here are a few of the things they touched on:


  • Michigan is practicing as physically this week as they did during September. "We're learning how to be a football team on a daily basis," Hoke said. "That competition -- one-on-ones -- is very vital to us, because of the competition aspect of it."
