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.

/4 The talk of firing defensive coordinator Scott Shafer
should subside now. The coaching staff smartly switched
4 to a 4-2-5 base, which maximizes Michigan's talent.
Obis So what if it took the players begging for the scheme
to change? The Wolverines allowed the fewest points,
yards and first downs all season. In Scott we trust.

1/4 Rodriguez was very relaxed in his postgame press con-
ference Saturday after coaching the Wolverines to their
4 first win since September. He was almost boring. Where
Rich Rods were the dirty looks, snappy comebacks and frustrated
one-liners? He didn't even mention how long he's been
here. It's almost like winning took something out of him.

2/ The-Metrodome lived up to its reputation as one of the
2 loudest football stadiums as even a part-full crowd forced
Michigan quarterback Nick Sheridan to take two tim-
Big Houses eouts as the play clock wound down. And it was impres-
sive when the small section of Wolverine fans' "Let's go
Blue" chants were clearly audible later in the game.

.. sns "We're fighting for Michigan. We're fight-
ing for ourselves. Our backs (are) against
the wall. No one expected us to come out
here and win. No one expected us to do
Sanything.They expectedus to give up, just
take it laying down. We're not doing that.
We're Michigan."
- Michigan senior nose tackle Terrance Taylor

6. SOUTHERN CAL (1): The Trojans playat
Stanford next week. Don't expect a repeatof last
year's upset because the Cardinals defensive
coordinator isn't Scott Shafer anymore. And
they're not even coached by a Michigan Man.

8. PENN STATE: Penn State quarterback Daryll
Clarkswas intears after hisdismal game cost the
Nittany Lions at Iowa. He apologized to "Penn
State nation." He also owes Michiganonation an
apology because he cost the Wolverines a win, too.

3.FLORIDA (1): Gator quarterback Tim Tebow
was pulled for the fourth quarter of Florida'swin at
Vanderbilt.But it was because his five touchdowns
helped the Gators buildahuge lead. Benching because
of good performance - notan option in Ann Arbor.

iu. uv b w t: t 4 Ie bCuUCxyCs snia au voia a
repeat of the pre-Michigan loss they suffered
against Illinois last year. Not because Illinois
lost to Western Michigan this week - because
Michigan is so bad, there's no reason to look ahead.
