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

DEFENSE-0-METER
The defense was put into a tough spot because of the
1A Wolverines' six turnovers, and it never really stepped
up. The Notre Dame offense didn't score in the sec-
Obis ond half, but that was probably more a product of the
rain than Michigan's defense actually playing well.

ROD-O-METER
Rodriguez apologized to the media for taking so much
f time in the shower before coming out to his press confer-
4 ence. He probably could have used a few minutes in the
Rich Rods shvitz to calm down a bit, too. Where did those unsolic-
ited comments defending his program come from?

HYPE-0-METER
The Notre Dame student shirts, playing off the famous quote
4 by sportswriter Grantlarid Rice, said, "Outlined against a cold,
gray October sky ... Notre Dame will rise again." And it was
Big Houses true - for 80,795 drenched fans, the dreary weather didn't
matter. They were raucous and had plenty to cheer about.

NOTABLE QUOTABLE

ASSOCIATED PRES POLL

"ACL and MCL. How do you like
that? I feel like an athlete - first
time in my life."
- Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis on the knee injury
he suffered in the second quarter after one of his play-
ers crashed into him on punt coverage. He sported a leg
brace and crutches on the sidelines, and was driven off
the field on a golf cart.
