PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES:
Michigan coach Sharad Mattu: "Before Wednesday's
practice, QB #7 notified me that his shoulder was feel-
ing sore. We had planned on playing both him and QB
#12. (Sigh) Maybe next week."
"No, our other QB #7."
"I have total confidence in HB #5. We didn't run the
ball because that was what the defense gave us. Now,
QB #12 had four interceptions, so we'll have to go
back and look at the tape."
"Now why would you ask a stupid question like that?"
"We'll make up for this next year. We'll be be doing 42
pushups and 42 wind sprints for the next 52 weeks."
Notre Dame coach Chris Burke: "Well, 38-0 is a distant
memory. We could have ended it 35-21, but ... well ...
have fun with that for the next year Michigan."
"WR #5 had 183 yards and WR #21 had 154 yards. I
don't have anything to say - except this - Michigan
couldn't have covered a 5-year-old today."
"My guess is that HB #5 won't start for Michigan next
week. I'm pretty sure three carries for -2 yards is one of
the worst performances in the history of football."
"Yes, we fumbled seven times. But we only lost three of
them. Next question."

Notre Dame will try to keep Michigan's Braylon Edwards under wraps and prevent another embarrassing loss to the Wolverines.

Willingham balked at such a propo-
sition.
"I guess I'll say I'm surprised
that Coach Carr has included us,"
Willingham said. "But I thank him
for doing so."
With the golden dome on a down-
ward slope, the possibility of a

victory against Michigan means
as much as ever before. Although
this year's Notre Dame schedule is
weaker than in previous years, the
Fighting Irish's loss to BYU lends
one to believe that any given week
could be a struggle. A win over a
heated rival and top-10 opponent
would begin to call off the pro-
gram's detractors.
The Fighting Irish are up to the

challenge.
"Coming into this game a lot of
people aren't giving us a chance,"
defensive end Justin Tuck said.
"We are going to surprise a lot
of people this week. If we play our
football then we can hang with any-
one in the country. We didn't do
that last week so we have to redeem
ourselves this week against Michi-
gan."

* Before every football game this season, two
of the Daily football writers will take the week-
end's matchup to the PlayStation 2.
* For this week's matchup, Sharad Mattu
coached the Wolverines and Chris Burke took
the helm for the Fighting Irish.
* Play of the game - Down 21-14, Michigan
QB #12 fires an errant pass that is picked off by
Notre Dame's CB #24 and returned for a touch-
down. Tough to run an out-and-in when TE #88
refuses to cut in.
* Player of the game - Notre Dame QB #10.
All the hype for Michigan's defense went straight
out the window as QB #10 went 16-for-27 for 403
yards and three touchdowns, all the while picking
on Michigan CB #3, who was burned repeatedly.

"Four picks
he is."

for QB #12. He's still hurt ... at least, I hope

Drum major takes lead
in band and staffpicks
Not many people can say that they
have addressed the Michigan foot-
ball team. Dennis Lee has.
The engineering senior from
Saline got the opportunity after a
practice during the week before
the Miami (Ohio) game. But that's
a privilege of being the drum major
of the Michigan Marching Band.
Lee practiced for the position since
the conclusion of last season.
Then he competed with two other
contestants in front of the entire
band for the right to star each
Saturday. He then won the honor
through a band-wide vote. He also
mentioned that he'll be taking his
hat off in a game coming in the
near future.
Now Lee takes his luck as the first
celebrity contestant in this year's
Michigan Daily staff picks. Lee
believes that Michigan is going to
cover in South Bend tomorrow. He
also thinks he'll be spending his
holiday break in Miami, when the
Wolverines run the table and head
to the Orange Bowl. But for now,
let's see how he does against the
Daily prognosticators.
