Streak can't stop seniors

Jessica Boullion

Brandent Englemon is sick of it.
The fifth-year senior has been questioned again and again about Michigan's three-game losing streak to rival Ohio State, and he's had about enough of the talk.
"Any time you have a rivalry and you haven't won in a couple of years, you get tired of hearing, 'Oh, they can't beat O State' or 'They can't win this game,' " Englemon said. "It's getting old."

Tight Lipped: With Ohio State state looming, Carr is mum on status of injured players

BY JACK HERMAN

Michigan coach Lloyd Carr never likes to reveal too much about injuries at his Monday press conference. And with the Big Ten Championship on the line against Ohio State this Saturday, he was more tight-lipped than usual yesterday.
Never mind Chad Henne and Mike Hart. Even the status of special teams player Anton Campbell was off limits.
"Saturday," Carr said when asked about Campbell's injury.The same went for Henne and Hart: "We'll have to see on Saturday."

Traditional attacks run over 'M'

BY JACK HERMAN

With its seventh win of the year - a thrashing of Minnesota three weeks ago - Michigan had finally completed an almost season-long test against its supposed nemesis: the spread offense.
And although the defense improved significantly during that time, some Wolverines said they were relieved they would finally play traditional offenses in the season's final three weeks. Get back to some "good, red-blooded American football" as linebackers coach Steve Szabo called it.
Now the Wolverines might be longing for the good 'ol days of four-wide-receiver formations.

Streak continues, but Super Mario struggles

Wide receiver Mario Manningham extended his 100-yard-receiving game streak to six contests Saturday, racking up 113 yards on three catches for two scores. But aside from a 97-yard touchdown reception against zone coverage, Manningham was shut down by cornerback Jake Ikegwuonu and the Badger defense.

Scott Bell: Entering the No Spin Zone, Michigan style

BY SCOTT BELL

The Michigan football team looked awful Saturday. There's no way to spin that. But it seems like everything else is getting spun every which way but where it should be these days. How should some of the events from Michigan's loss to Wisconsin and the trends surrounding this team make you feel? I'll do my best Bill O'Reilly impression (minus the sexual harassment lawsuits) and turn Fort Schembechler into a no spin zone.
Michigan sits Mike Hart and takes a lot of caution with Chad Henne after just two drives.

Staff picks recap

Brian Merlos

Staff Picks recap: Enduring criticism week after week, it looks like Jack Herman is intent on proving his detractors wrong. Tying Daniel Bromwich and Scott Bell for the weekly lead, Herman surged past the celebrities this week. Just a few more wins, and he'll top Kevin Wright for third place. If he keeps studying hard, even Bromwich and Bell could be in his sights.

Better beat the Bucks

BY KEVIN WRIGHT

MADISON -
Ohio State.
Those two words have been on the minds of Michigan fans all season.
The Wisconsin trap game didn't even matter. It wouldn't factor into the Big Ten Championship picture, and thus the outcome was unimportant.
In the big picture, the beatdown Wisconsin handed the Wolverines Saturday in Camp Randall Stadium didn't even happen - because it didn't count.
"No, it don't mean nothing," senior captain Shawn Crable said. "The morale wasn't down in the locker room. We still recognize we got a shot at (a Big Ten Championship)."
