DENARD-O-METER

o 4 Robinson said it himself - this was the worst
game of his collegiate career, He is awarded zero
0 4 Denards, and may the football gods base mercy on
Denards his game and bring it back to life in two weeks,

MAN-C-METER
2/ The defensive line was good. The offensive line
f4 was mediocre - which is to say, better. The line
cosldn't get Fitzgerald Tosssaint going and strsg-
BayHksgled at times to protect Robinson.

HYPE-C-METER

It was like a less commercialized, old-school Under
the Lights. Yos know, if the old-schoolers had
electricity. Dave Brandon wosldn't approve, bst we
do. Except for the fans in the press box.

THE DEFENSIVE LINE:
For the first time all
season, the embattled
defensive line held Notre
Dame to less than 100
yards rushing, Plus, they
generated enough pressure
on freshman quarterback
Everett Golson to force
the mistakes that got him
yanked from the game.
The game was far from
perfect - senior Will
Campbell led the unit with
just two solo tackles and
two assists, and the line
failed to record a sack -
but it's a step forward.
Most expected the
Fighting Irish to control
the line of scrimmage,
but the defensive line
answered with its best
performance all season.

SENIOR QUARTERBACK
DENARD ROBINSON:
Robinson's 22nd birthday
wasn't exactly happy.
Robinson threw four
straight interceptions. On
four straight attempts. And
he lost a fumble, It's tough
to win a football game
when the quarterback turns
the ball over five times.
Michigan failed to score
a touchdown for the first
time all season, largely
because the Fighting Irish
held Robinson to 3.5 yards
per carry. After the game,
Robinson apologized to the
fans, promised to get better
and called the loss the most
disappointed in himself he's
been in his life. But other
than that, Mr.- Robinson,
how was the game?

THE MICHIGAN DAILY TOP-b -POLL

points, second-place votes receiving nine, and so on.

no more.
-Senior qsarterback Denard Robinson

1. ALABAMA (20): The
Tide let Florida Atlantic
score with three minutes
left. That was nice.

T .GEORGIA: Todd Gurley
carry, yet his friends still insist
on calling him Gurley-Man.

2. OREGON: Oregon beat
Arizona 49-0, and showed
that even without Greg
" Robinson, Rich Rod's
defense stinks.
r 3. LSU: The Tigers gotal12-10
win over Auburn, and LesS
L Miles got abelly full of grass.
4. FLORIDA STATE: The
last timegFlorida Statewas _____
this good, Mambo #5 was a ~ f
popular song. Time for a little
bit of Seminole in my life.

7. WEST VIRGINIA: Geno
Smith threw for 338 yards
and three touchdowns. It
was an off day. We're on the
Heisman bandwagon.
8. STANFORD: The Cardinal
took aweek offto think about
how cool it wasto beat USC.
9. NOTRE DAME: It Notre
Dame keeps winning,
I think we have to take
away Rick Reilly's TV deal
instead, right? Fair is fair.

T-S. SOUTH CAROLINA:
Penetrating holes in the
Missouri defense, the Cocks
rose to No. 5, but it only gets
harder from here.

10. KANSAS STATE: The
CWildcats helped us out by
9 0 beating Oklahoma, proving
our hypothesis that a bye in
week three is shbad idea.

STAFF PICKS
The Daily football writers do their best
to predict, against the spread, what
happens in the 2012 football season.
