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--MET ER
2/4The defense automatically gets one Obi for senior Ter-
rance Taylor's body slam. We thought only running
h acks could (allegedly) lay that kind of wood. The defen-
Obis sive line rocked out all afternoon, hut the secondary
had as many holes as the Michigan Stadium crowd.

ROD-0-METER
Rodriguez must have realized his shtick was getting
old, because he was much less sarcastic after this loss.
4~ Instead, he was just boring. No witty insights, a lot of
Rich Rods generic comments about Ohio State next Saturday and
the same answers to the same questions he's been
asked all season. Maybe he's getting sick of that, too.

HYPE-C-METER
During halftime, the Michigan Stadium press box announcer
said, "Earlier today, the attendance was 107,856." By that
time, the student section was more than half empty -
Big Houses but it was never full in the first place. Sure, the weather
was terrible and the team is bad. But for the last game in
the Big House this year, the turnout was horrendous.

NOTABLE QUOTABLE
"He just told us that he loved playing with
us and, 'Don't let a season like this happen
again.' Even if we did go 0-13, we are Michi-
gan and we stand for everything that Michi-
gan's about.... His words are very powerful,
and they'll stick with me for the rest of my
life."

8. UTAH: The Utah-Brigham Young game
might be the mostcompetitive rivalry game
this weekend, andyouprobably won't even
be able to watch it. It's on the mtn., the
Rocky Mountain equivalent of theBTN.

3.FLORIDA (2): South Carolina and former Gator
coach Steve Spurrier is known to run the score up
on opponents. Florida coach Urban Meyer gave
him a taste of his own medicine, handinghim
the worst loss of his coaching career Saturday.

10. BALL STATE (1): Cardinal coach Brady
Hoke, a former Lloyd Carr assistant, is leading
an undefeated team and has a chance to makea
BCS game. So, that'sthe formula for winning?
Wonder what Mike DeBord is up to.

5. OKLAHOMA: Texas Tech knocked the Sooners
outofthe national title race late lastseason.
Oklahoma will have the chance to return the favor
thisweekend. How many great games can the Big
12 have this year? Don't answer. It's rhetorical.
