said, referring to Michigan's 24-19
defeat in Ann Arbor. "If we don't
win this weekend, I'll have to live
with it the rest of my life."
Even more frustrating for them
and the rest of the Wolverines is
that Michigan has played well in
each of the last three losses.
"It's just been one mistake after
another. Not a large number, just
one or two strategically placed,"
Elliott said. "Last year (a 28-24
loss) it was in our grasp. The year
before, we won, but lost the kicking
game. The year before that (a 19-17
defeat), we were two feet wide of
winning the game."
CMichigan is the clear-cut fa-
vorite this year. Though in 1989, the
No. 1 Wolverines hosted No. 2
Notre Dame, they have never before
been such a consensus favorite. But
Michigan coach Gary Moeller re-
gards the Irish as highly now as he
ever has.
"They have some people to re-
place," he said. "But they also have a
lot of talent and they are an excel-
lent football team."
The Notre Dame backfield fea-
tures Detroit natives Rodney
Culver and Jerome Bettis at tailback
and fullback, respectively.
Quarterback Rick Mirer, who staged
the winning comeback drive last
year, completed 11 of 17 passes for
#209 yards last week in Notre
Dame's 49-27 victory over Indiana.
"They have a lot of balance and
everybody talks about them not be-
ing as fast," Moeller said. "But in
" reality, they've got a lot of young
guys who are going to come on and
