The Michigan Daily - michignalco

MondaySeptember 8 0 8 5

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 Rod-o-Meter
judges how emotional (positive or negative) Rich Rodriguez was following the game and the Hype-o-Meter measures the fans' performance.


3 We're giving the defense three Obis mainly because Obi
wasn't the only player to show up Saturday. Jonas Mouton
and John Thompson were solid in their first starts of the sea-
Obis son. Brandon Harrison was impressive with his touchdown-
robbing swat, and Donovan Warren almost had two picks.

2/ Props to Rodriguez for adopting the new post-win cel-
ebration with the student section. But for a coach
4 coming off his first win in a new job, he was pretty
Rich Rods reserved. Granted, it was a win over Miami (Ohio),
but c'mon, Rich - after all you've been through?

2/4 With just106,724 fans, the Big House had the lowest attendance
since the1998expansion. Many of the students were late, but they
somewhat redeemed themselves bysinging along to "The Vic-
Big Houses tors" after the game, One Big House goes to the marching band's
awesome boy bands-themed show. Oh, and we want less cowbell.
