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.

DEFENSE-O-METER
3/4We're docking points for the start to the game, even though the
Wolverines allowedljust one touchdown. Even so, it's tough to
Squibble with the tourth quarter, when the detense turned on
Crables the burners, torced four turnovers and put the game away.

CARR-O-METER
I Well, it wasn't the way Carr wanted to leave Evanston. The
coach's voice was pretty hoarse after the game, indicating he
4 might have been doing some yelling to wake his team up at
Lloyd halftime. But, he was pretty happy Chad Henne played well
Carrs so he could finally silence the quarterback-controversy talk.

HYPEMETER
1/4 Northwestern fans barely outnumbered the Wolverines
in the stands, and the stadium felt more like a high school
field. But, we do give the student section some credit.
Big Houses We can never hear "Hey, Baby" too many times.

THE MICHIGAN DAILY TOP 10 POLL
T hg yTs r alle6.SOUTH FLORIDA: Thiswas supposed to be the
Epd tfr tyear for the Mountaineers, but they choked harder

ASSOCIATED PRESS POLL
After a 28-16 win over South Carolina, Louisiana State picked up three
first-place votes, but it still wasn't enough to overtake Southern Cali-
fornia for the top spot in this week's poll.

Staff Picks recap: Well, Joseph, everyone has a bad week every once in a while. Sometimes the upsets
just don't fall your way. Just ask Jack Herman how he did when he was the celebrity picker last year for
the bowl games. In other news, Scott Bell can hold onto football writer bragging rights. He was the only
one to finish the week with a winning record, extending his over-.500 streak to four weeks. He also
gained a three-game lead on Wright and Herman in the standings.
Remember, if you want your chance to be a star, e-mail us at footballbeat07@umich.edu. If you're cho-
sen and can beat at least two of us, you'll stay on for another week. The longest tenured guest picker
will get a prize. Right now, Todd Karazim still has the lead.
