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-0-METER
3 You really can't blame the defense for this loss. Sure, it screwed
up when the unit let Ohio State running back get loose on his
62-yard touchdown run on the Buckeye's first play of the sec-
Crables ond half. But aside from that blemish, the Wolverine defense
kept the game in reach, even though its offensive counterparts
couldn't move the ball. The defense was on the field for too
much of the game, and it still surrendered just two touchdowns.

CARR-O-METER
2/ Saturday's press conference wasn't the press conference
people will remember about this weekend - it's today's
4 that everyone is buzzing about. Carr will retire today,
Lloyd just two days after deflecting questions about his
Carrs future in Saturday's post-game press conference.

and Miami were supposed to dominate the ACC
year in and yearout?Well, theHokies have held up
their end of thebargain, and a win this week over
Virginia gives them a spot in the ACC Titlegame.

3. MISSOURI: The Tigers, like the rest of the Big
12, have been flying under the radar all season long.
Not anymore. Missouri faces Kansas next weekend
in a game that will go a long way in clearingup the
National Title picture.

HYPEMETER
3 4 The student section got the memo about the Maize Out, but the
w rest of the Big House seemed a bit too red. The pre-game atmo-
sphere was electric, and most of the students got to their seats
Big Houses well before the game started. Still, it got alittle quiet in the fourth
quarter, even if there was nothing worth getting excited about
from the Wolverines play on the field. Oh yeah, and there was the
O-H-1-O cheer that made it all the way around Michigan Stadium.
PSSOCIATED . P O
Upsets continue to pile up within the top 5, with No. 2 Oregon and
No. 3 Oklahoma the most recent casualties. New No. 2 Kansas now
controls its own destiny and should reach the National Championship
game if it stays perfect in the regular season.

10. SOUTHERN CAL: They may not win a
National Title this season, but the Trojans have
quietly rebounded from a mid-season swoon and
can secure a share of the lead in the Pac-10 with
a win over Arizona State this weekend.

S.OHIO STATE: All appeared to belost afterthe
Buckeyes lost toIllinois a week ago. Now, after a
convincing win here in Ann Arbor, Ohio State has
ensured itself a berth inthe RoselBowl - which it
hasn't been to since 1997.

I Staff Picks recap: Well, it looks like the natural order of things has been restored - almost. Scott Bell
didn't capture the win, but he finished just a game back from Kevin Wright. Meanwhile, Jack Herman
returned to his comfy position as the cellar dwellar of the writers. Because he equaled the guest picker,
Herman still is a game ahead of the guests in the race for last place. It'll be a close one with one week
remaining on the schedule. Even though Herman was the lone writer to finish below.500, no one
picked a best bet correctly. Pretty horrible.
Unfortunately, we'll have to wish Engineering sophomore Stephen Dzul good luck as his five minutes
of fame are over. Sorry we couldn't get an actual headshot in the paper. The photo staff lost it, so we
went with the silouttee picture. As always, e-mail the football beat at footballbeat07@umich.edu to
get in the pool of potential participants.

STAFF PICKS
Writer takes the best
record of the week, and
the guest is gone. Her-
man is still a disgrace.
