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
2 / The defense didn't allow a touchdown, but it did give up more
than 300 yards to a relatively weak offense. The worst part
of the defense's performance was the missed tackles. No
Obis official stats are kept for those, but we're guessing Michi-
gan had somewhere between one and two thousand.

ROD-O-METER
2/4 In his Notre Dame and Illinois postgame press conferences,
Rodriguez sounded angry. That wasn't the case Saturday -
4 hejust looked sad. You almost have to feel for the guy. He
Rich Rods knew it wasn't going to be easy, but he probably didn't think
it would be as bad as his first year at West Virginia (3-8).

HYPE-0-METER
The student section didn't show up. Most students
0 should have wanted to see a blowout win after the
debacle against Illinois. That's what everyone expected
Big Houses against Toledo, but the seats were empty anyway. Even
when the game was tight, the crowd wasn't loud.

NOTABLE QUOTABLE
"Quiet. Quiet. It wasn't crazy.
Just quiet. Sometimes after
games, you get guys mad and
yelling and screaming and things
like that. Not today. Everybody's
j'ust quiet."
-Michigan running backs coach Fred Jackson on the
mood in the locker room after the game

6. TEXAS TECH: Redshirt sophomore wide receiver
Mike Crabtree broke the school's all-time career
receiving touchdown record Saturday with 32. We
wish Michigan's sophomore receivers could just
hold on to apass.

1.TEXAS(71): The Longhorns'victoryin:
the Red River Shootout showed they're the
real deal. And the 35 points theyallowed
to Oklahoma was good practice for facing
Missouri's high-scoringoffense next week.

111

8. SOUTHERN CAL: The Trojans had 10 penalties
and quarterback Mark Sanchez turned the ball
over four times in one quarter.USC stillwon 28-0.
If Michigan would have made those mistakes;
who knows how many it would have lost by?

3. PENN STATE: Penn State beat Wisconsin
by 35 points. Michigan hasn't scored 35
points in its last two games combined.
We're assuming that will still be the same
after the two teams meet this weekend.

10. UTAH (1): Last year, Utah beat Wyoming by
50points. Thissyear,it was 33.Wyoming coach Joe
Glenn issreally turning those Cowboys around. By
the way, Louie Sakoda (the guy who hit four field
goals against Michigan) booted an81-yard punt.

/7. OKLAHOMA:After the game, Sooner coach Bob
Stoops said LSU still went to last year's title game
withtwolosses.Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said
Oklahomalostto Texas two years ago and still made
the Big12 chapionship game. Stop livinginthe past.
