MAIZE GAUGE
The Michigan Daily football writers break down the weekend's stats that don't show up in the box-
score. The defense-o-meter measures the intensity of the defense, the Carr-o-meter judges Lloyd Carr s
demeanor following the game and the hypemeter measures the fans' game performance.

HYPEMETER

the crowd showed up in full force. And other than an ill-timed
Big Houses attempt at "The Wave," it gave an otherwise solid performance.

S. WEST VIRGINIA: Rich Rodriguez's squad
showed some of its moxie, defeating Maryland, 31-
14, on the road in araucous environment. Oh wait,
it wasn't basketball, and the only thing massive
about the Terps' stadium is their coach.

Staff Picks recap: So, uh, this is a little embarrassing. LSA senior Todd Karazim is just killing the Daily
football writers. And the thing is, the writers aren't even performing that poorly. Karazim has just been
on fire. He was the only one this week to pick the Kentucky upset, and the only one to take Rutgers
and its 53.5 points. He also nailed the Duke upset and correctly didn't trust Minnesota to beat Florida
Atlantic, a team that had lost to Penn State 59-0. Bell did make something of a comeback, though,
winning the week by one pick. Bell's most impressive pick was the Boston College upset over a higher-
ranked and playing-at-home Georgia Tech squad that had played well in recent weeks. Per the terms
of this contest, Karazim will be back next week. As long as he continues to perform better than two
Daily writers on the weekend, he'll continue to return. Stay tuned.
