Michigan linebacker Scott McClintock said
Carlyle Holiday can be "like another running
back." Lineman Larry Stevens said Michigan
doesn't "want him running wild out there."
There was so much talk going on about Hol-
iday's ground game at Michigan's weekly press
conference on Monday, it was almost easy to
forget that Holiday - Notre Dame's quarter-
back, not it's tailback - can actually throw the
ball, as well.
Holiday's arm may not be as highly acclaimed
as his feet, but it's effective. The senior, in his
third year as Notre Dame's starting quarterback,
had just five interceptions in 251 passing
attempts last season and completed 21-of-34
throws last weekend against Washington State.
But it's still Holiday's scrambling ability that
scares teams. Michigan's defenders will try not
to get caught up in chasing Holiday all over

the field when they face Notre Dame tomor-
row afternoon.
"I think the main thing is to pressure him,"
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said. "You can't be
so worried about keeping him inside. My
belief is that the best pass rush is where you
get in front, where you pressure the pocket.
Then if you get outside pressure, he doesn't
have anywhere to step up."
Although people often think of Holiday in
terms of his running ability, he has had to turn
his focus more toward throwing the ball. Holi-
day was recruited by former Notre Dame
coach Bob Davie as an option quarterback, but
when current coach Tyrone Willingham
replaced Davie and brought in his West Coast
offense in last season, Holiday had some
adjustments to make.
The quarterback said the switch in systems
hasn't been too difficult to adjust to, but "there
are moments where you want to take off with
the ball."

"But it's a process. I think the coaches
understand the situation their players are in,
and they let me take the steps as I can."
Holiday said that when he does have the
urge to run, he usually ignores it, and he hasn't
talked to the coaches about adding more
option-style plays to the offense.
"I have to realize I have to be unselfish and
do what's best for the team," Holiday said. "I
think the coaches realize the talent they have
on the team, and they do a really good job of
using it."
Michigan's Stevens, who will be one of the
guys trying to stop Holiday tomorrow, said
Holiday's quick feet are still a useful tool with
Notre Dame's current offensive system.
"One thing about Carlyle Holiday is ... the
guy can flat-out make plays, and he uses his
feet to get himself in better positions and make
better throws," Stevens said. "And I think he's
a great athlete, and he's got a great arm as well
as his feet."

Before every football game this season, two of the Daily football writers will
take the weekend's matchup to the PlayStation 2.
For this week's matchup, coach Kyle O'Neill led the Irish and J. Brady McCol-
lough took the helm for the Wolverines.
Play of the game - With the score 17-7, Michigan kicked off to WR No. 21.
He found an opening along the right side and began to make his acceleration
towards the endzone. Michigan's FS No. 28 made a touchdown-saving tackle
just past midfield. Notre Dame then gained one first down before failing to
convert a fourth-down when a field goal would have been as good.
Player of the game - Without a doubt it goes to Michigan's front seven. Led
by DE's 95 and 13, the entire group rebounded from Notre Dame's first drive
down for a touchdown and basically shut the Irish out from there. They com-
bined for six tackles for loss, nine hurries and three sacks.
Michigan coach J. Brady McCollough: Coach O'Neill challenged me on his -
gasp - Gamecube! - which I had never played before our game. It is an
unbelievable system judging by how I performed. I actually expected to lose.
I know that's not the attitude of a Michigan Man, but I am normally a
Playstation 2 kind of guy. O'Neill needs to look in the mirror and see who he
really is, because he didn't play like a Gamecube kind of guy.
Speaking of Playstation 2s, whoever is f%$#'n stealing my Playstations from
my house needs to step up. I'll kick your ass with any team, even though now
you have four of my Playstations and I have none. What exactly do you do with
four Playstations? I don't really see how that could be much fun. Just playing
on one of them and staring at the other three. Anyway, I'm onto you. I m tak-
ing Criminology so I can understand why you're such a loser.
Shoutouts. WR No. 15 WENT OFF. What a baller. This kid caught a tremendous
touchdown pass from QB No. 16, and then had a huge punt return in the third
quarter to set up a field goal from get this - K No. 34.l can't say enough about
B No. 16. He went to war out there and left with a win he'll remember or the
rest of his life. The one thing I was disappointed about was the toughness of my
team. Four guys went down in the first half.
Notre Dame coach Kyle O'Neill: We did not defend the Gamecube well today. We
looked like a team incapable of running my no-huddle, which was my fault. This Notre
Dame team is surely no West Virginia, and I don't even know if I'll ever wear an Irish
hat again. I'm sure the other members of the 1709 S. University Conference will get a
kick out of me losing, as I have done nothing but dominated there.
Do I fault myself? Of course I do. I'm not here to make excuses. In fact, I'm looking
forward to taking on McCollough's Wolverines again. Indiana, Minnesota, Purdue
and Northwestern will all have wins over Michigan by the end of the season, that I
will guarantee. But, I will not say a negative word about Notre Dame.
Will I abandon the no-huddle? ............(staring into reporter's soul, making him
break down and cry)........................................................................... No.
I'm happy for McCollough. I really am. I know I am going to be hearing about this for a
long time ... I've alre heard he kicked my ass. Whatever. I'm man enouh to take it.
My play calling was b at times. What that tells me? I just need to go back to my orig-
inal gameplan and do it. I abandoned a lot in this game and it won't happen again.

"The Season
By Kyle O'Neill
Daily Sports Editor
"Notre Dame: The Season" debuted
this past Tuesday night on ESPN.
For the Michigan offensive line,
their season begins tomorrow. Gone
are relative pushovers in Central
Michigan and Houston. Welcome
No. 15 Notre Dame to the Big
House. Also welcome a defensive
line that knows how to get into the
backfield. The Irish had seven tack-
les for loss (including two sacks) for
minus-30 yards against Washington
State last Saturday.
"They have a great defense,"
Michigan running back Chris Perry
said. "Their front seven is very fast,
very athletic and they are always
running to the ball. It's going to be a
challenge and hopefully we can step
up to it and handle it well."
Michigan's successes the past two
weeks have been fueled through the
running attack. Against the Chippe-
was and Cougars, the Wolverines
totaled 734 yards rushing. The offen-
sive line has given up just a sack in
those two games as well.
Notre Dame, while giving up 274
passing yards to Washington State,
was unbelievably stingy on the run,
allowing just 55 yards on 31 carries.
To say the least, this will be
Michigan's first challenge against its

running attack and Notre Dame wi
certainly face a much better runni
back duo in Chris Perry and Dav
Underwood (296 yards per gam,
than Jonathan Smith and Jermai
Green (162 yards per game).
"We definitely see that they'
been running the ball well," No
Dame nose guard Cedric Hillia
said. "Any team that gets ... what
it, 367 yards per game? You can oi
hope to keep them under that."
While the Wolverines began pra
tice this past Monday in order
prepare for the Irish, Notre Dan
hadn't seen much of Michigan, ha
ing its first practice on Tuesda
Even with the one less day of pre
though, the Irish did get a look
the offensive line that they will
going against.
"They come off the line wel
