Staff Picks recap: So, uh, this is a little embarrassing. LSA senior Todd Karazim is just killing the Daily football writers. And the thing is, the writers aren't even performing that poorly. Karazim has just been on fire. He was the only one this week to pick the Kentucky upset, and the only one to take Rutgers and its 53.5 points. He also nailed the Duke upset and correctly didn't trust Minnesota to beat Florida Atlantic, a team that had lost to Penn State 59-0. Bell did make something of a comeback, though, winning the week by one pick.
Hypocrites unite! People have made mistakes - famous people!
What does that mean?
Well, we could forgive them and realize everyone makes mistakes.
But come on, what fun is that? Let's pounce. Let's act all holier than thou. It's much, much more fun that way.

Early in the second quarter of Saturday's game, Michigan quarterback Ryan Mallett threw a lateral to wideout Adrian Arrington, intending to receive it back on a pass. Before he could make the catch, though, the 6-foot-7 freshman tripped, falling on the ground as the ball sailed over his head.

There was nothing wrong with his palette, he just hadn't enjoyed the taste in a long time.
For captain Mike Hart, it was time to remember the taste of victory.
"I was just telling the team I lost the taste of winning for a while," Hart said. "I hadn't won a game in a while - four games - so we got that victory. I got that taste back in my mouth, and we want to keep winning."
To solidify his guaranteed victory, Hart carried the ball 35 times. He ran for 187 yards. He scored two touchdowns.
The Michigan Daily football writers break down the weekend's stats that don't show up in the boxscore. The defense-o-meter measures the intensity of the defense, the Carr-o-meter judges Lloyd Carr's demeanor following the game and the hypemeter measures the fans' game performance.
You don't need us to tell you the defense deserved a perfect score. The Notre Dame offensive line looked more like the Maginot Line against the Wolverine defense. Michigan recorded eight sacks and held Notre Dame to 79 yards.
