Michigan-Michigan State warm-up notes

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- I don't want to harp on the wind here, but gusts picked up for a few minutes during warm-ups, and Denard Robinson was having trouble connecting with his deep throws during that time. The pants and jackets of the assistant coaches on the field were doing some serious flapping.

We also got our first look at the new Michigan State pro combat uniforms in action. I like the helmets, but the jerseys and numbers are a little too dark for my tastes. But clearly the players are excited to wear some new digs.

Linebacker Brandon Herron is out again for Michigan, and safety Marvin Robinson didn't make the trip for a second straight week.
