We didn't score enough points on
offense. We lost."
Michigan's third straight loss to
Ohio State capped off atragic week-
end for the program.
Saturday's game came just one
Bo Schembechler passed away at
age 77. But just as the Wolverines
refused to use his death as motiva-
tion, they wouldn't accept it as an
excuse in the hard-fought loss.
"That's part of our lives, but cer-
tainly it had ... nothing to do with
what happened (Saturday)," Michi-
gan coach Lloyd Carr said. "It was
part of the weekend, but we lost to a
In what was supposed to be an
epic battle between Ohio State's
explosive offense and Michigan's
impenetrable defense, the Buckeyes
unquestionably had the edge.
State signal caller Troy Smith carved
up the Wolverines' defense. The
Heisman frontrunner all but locked
up the award by amassing 316 yards
and four touchdowns on 29-for-41
passing against one of the nation's
top defenses. Smith also became the
first Ohio State quarterbacksince the
1930s (William H. "Tippy" Dye) to
beat the Wolverines three times.
Most pundits expected Smith to
rack up yards against Michigan's
secondary, easily the weakest part
of its vaunted defense. But virtually
no one foresaw the Buckeyes' run-
ning backs burning the Wolverines
for 187 yards.
Ranked No. linthenationagainst
the run all season, Michigan had
allowed just one team (Minnesota)
to gain more than 100 yards on the
ground in its first 1 games.
Ohio State amassed 108 of its
rushing yards on two big plays up
the middle, a 52-yard touchdown
run from Chris Wells in the second
quarter and a 56-yard touchdown
run from Antonio Pittman in the
On both plays, the out-of-posi-
tion Wolverines missed tackles that
sprungthe Buckeye tailbacks loose.
"We just had mistakes," senior
co-captain LaMarr Woodley said.
"Just as far as the defense, too many
mistakes. When you have mistakes,
the other team capitalizes on them.
You give up big plays and stupid
penalties, (and) it allows the team
to continue their drive."
The costliest of Michigan's five
penalties was linebacker Shawn
Crable's helmet-to-helmet hit on
Smith with six minutes left in the
Down 35-31, the Wolverines
looked as if they had stopped Ohio
State's drive until Crable was whis-
tled for roughing the passer. That
penalty turned a possible fourth-
and-15 into a first-and-10 at the
Michigan 23-yard line.
Three plays later, Smith threw
his fourth touchdown pass to give
Ohio State an 11-point lead with five
minutes to go.
But that penalty wouldn't have
been as critical if Michigan had
been able to slow down the Buck-
eyes in the first half.
From Ohio State's opening drive
(which included four third-down
conversions) to its final possession
of the frame (a surgical 80-yard
drive that gave it a 28-14 halftime
lead) the Wolverines couldn't con-
tain the Buckeyes' offensive attack.
And it cost them dearly in the
end. Michigan's 14-point halftime
deficit turned out to be too much
for it to overcome.
"We gave up too many big plays,"
Carr said. "Any time you give up
two long runs and a long pass, it's
going to be hard to beat anybody,
much less a team like we played
(Saturday). Big plays simply were
the biggest factor in the game."
To a certain extent, that cut
both ways. Michigan's offense put
together its share of big plays, too.
The Wolverines looked unstop-
pable on their opening drive, which
included a pair of 20-plus yard
catches by receiver Mario Man-
ningham, who finished the day
with six receptions for 86 yards.
Quarterback Chad Henne
remained poised in the face of Ohio
State's pass rush, completing 21-
of-35 passes for 267 yards and two
touchdowns. The junior threw a
handful of errant passes, most nota-
bly whenhe overthrew a wide-open
Manningham in the first quarter,
but looked sharp in spite of the rau-
Even so, Hart stole the show
offensively. Against the Big Ten's
second-stingiest run defense, the
junior amassed 142 yards and three
touchdowns on 23 carries in typi-
cal form, spinning by defenders
and dragging multiple Buckeyes to
notch extra yards.
"Their defense played good,
but they're not as good as people
thought, I guess I could say," Hart
said. "We knew we were going to
be able to run the ball, but we didn't
put enough points on the board.
There's nothing special about that
In an otherwise impressive
day, the Wolverines' offense was
marred by its inability to capitalize
on Ohio State's big mistakes. The
Buckeyes started to self-destruct,
committing three turnovers (one
interception and two lost fumbles)
in the second half.
But Michigan only managed to
score 10 points off those turnovers
- not enough when it was trying to
come back against the nation's top
The Wolverines' 39 points, their
third-highest total of the season,
should have been sufficient to
secure them a victory, especially
with their highly touted defense.
National Championship dream isn't
quite out of reach.
Both Southern Cal and Florida
still have to play teams ranked near
the top of the BCS standings. This
Saturday, the Trojans take on No. 5
Notre Dame (.8198). In two weeks,
the Gators will face No. 6 Arkansas
(.8065) in the Southeastern Confer-
ence Championship game.
If the Wolverines don't make it
to Glendale, Ariz., they know they
only have themselves to blame.
"We put ourselves in that situ-
ation, and we have to sit back and
wait," Woodley said. "If we would
have won, we knew right away
where we were going to be playing
and what day. All we can do is sit
back and wait now."

party," he said. "Our candidates
obviously resonated very well with
the campus community."
MAP has sought to distance
itself from the Students 4 Michi-
gan Party, which previously domi-
nated the assembly. It disbanded
after the hotly contested spring
election, which was rife with scan-
dal and dirty politicking.
S4M and MAP share many mem-
bers, and the new coalition appears
to be a part of a series of powerful
parties, though MAP leaders insist
theirs is a fresh start.
After MAP, the Defend Affir-
mative Action Party was the next
biggest winner. DAAP candidates
will take all four seats, most of
them in elections where they ran
There is a tie for the lone School
of Public Health seat between
DAAP candidate Katrina Her-
bert and independent Christiana
Shoushtari. Election Director
Ryan Bouchard said the tie will be
resolved as soon as possible.
DAAP Chair Maricruz Lopez,
who failed in her bid for an LSA
seat, said she was pleased with her
party's showing but felt they could
have done better.
The Student Liberty Party had
a small taste of victory, winning
one School of Pharmacy seat. Lisa
Treumuth, who ran uncontested,
will fill the seat.
SLP founder Ryan Fantuzzi
said he was not surprised by the
results and said he blames his
party's poor showing on lack of
"People didn't work as hard
as last year and I didn't work as
hard," he said, citing a family
situation that he said has occu-
pied much of his free time and

one stepped up to fill that void.
I'm hoping someone will step up
right now and take over."

level, but Joanne Lindsay said that
didn't prevent anyone from under-
standing the type of person he was.
"Everyone who got to talk to
him walked away feeling the same
way," said Lindsay, Schembechler's
friend of 30 years. "He was the type
