THE QUCK BREAKDOWN

MAIZE GAUGE
MESK-a-METER

The Michigan Daity football writers break down the weekend's stats that don't show up in the box score. The Mesk-o-Meter measures the success of special teams, 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.

Zoltans

Here's one Mesko for, well, Mesko's punting.
But he was the only special teams player
who showed up. Mathews fumbled a critical
punt and Stonum struggled with kickoff
returns. It was a pretty rough night.

Rich Rods

After the first few questions, it looked
like Rodriguez was going to pull a Drew
Rosenhaus with his frustration and all of
his "next question" responses. Rodriguez
was pretty ticked, to say the least.

HYPE-O-METER
4 Kinnick Stadium, at night, with everyone "blacked
out" (both in dress and mental state) - need we
say more? Sure, the fans rushed the field after
Big Houses beating an eight-point underdog, but Iowa also
hadn't won a Homecoming game in three years.

Minor was five yards short of the century mark As Forcier was about to take the field for presumably
on 22 carries and scored two rushing touchdowns yet another comeback, Rodriguez grabbed him by the
against an Iowa team that hadn't given one up in pads. A lackluster three and a half quarters meant
almost 34 quarters. Guess it helps to be healthy. Forcier had to watch this one end from the sidelines.

That's not the story

his decision-making process with the
