THE QUICK BREAKDOWN
AA IZ E G A U G Er The Michigan Daily football writers break down the weekend's stats that don't show up in the box score. The Denard-o-Meter measures the success of quarterback
Denard Robinson, the Man-o-Meterjudges Michigan's "Manball," how physically it played in the trenches, and the Hype-o-Meter measures the fans' performance.

DENARD-O-METER
/ It wasn't Denard, but Devin Gardner did everything
asked of him in Robinson's stead and more. Limited
in his running game by a short bench, Gardner'car-
Denards ried Michigan with his arm.

MAN-O-METER
1/4 The offensive line was porous in pass protection
against a mediocre Minnesota defense. After the
game, Hoke was critical of the unit, which allowed
Brady Hokes constant pressure on Gardner.

HYPE-O-METER
2/4 Here's a picture of the atmosphere. In the fourth
quarter, the crowd was more focused on Goldy the
Gopher, Minnesota's mascot, attacking members
Big Houses of the band with a foam sword than the game.

LOOKING GOOD

FEELING BLUE

JUNIOR QUARTERBACK
DEVIN GARDNER: The
quarterback, converted into a
receiver, converted back into
a quarterback, shook off a
rough first quarter to dominate
the game. Gardner showed
off an impressive arm, and
threw several vertical strikes
to receivers Roy Roundtree,
Drew Dileo and Jeremy Gallon.
Gardner finished 12-for-18
for 234 yards and three
touchdowns - two passing
and one on the ground. His
touchdown pass to Gallon in
the corner of the end zone was
placed where only Gallon could
get it. Gardner scrambled
for gains with no one open,
and had just one mistake:
a poor throw in the first
quarter for an interception.

JUNIOR PUNTER WILL
HAGERUP: Minnesota took a
lead into the second quarter,
largely because the Golden
Gophers controlled the field-
position battle. Hagerup didn't
help. Until this game, Hagerup
was among the nation's best
punters. He still ranks No. 20
in the nation in punt average,
but his numbers plummeted
Saturday with three punts for an
average of just 29.33 yards per
punt. On two of those punts, he
shanked the ball out of bounds.
After the game, Michigan coach
Brady Hoke was harsh on his
special teams, and said that the
punt team needed to find more
consistency, both in protection
and in Hagerup's performance.
