The Michigan Daily Top 10 returns for its fourth installment in this young season. Each week, Daily Sports staffers will fill out ballots, with first place votes receiving 10 points, second-place votes receiving nine and so on. The results are published w
This is the biggest upset of the season so far: Scott Bell lost for the first time. Not only did he only pick up just five wins, but this week's results also mark the first time this year Bell hasn't posted an above-.500 record. Still, he retained first place in the overall standings because of the big lead he engineered during his ridiculous run. Kevin Wright finally distanced himself from Daniel Bromwich in a race for second place, and he's even starting to sneak up on Bell. Most important, props to Jack Herman for having a not-unconscionably-awful week.

The Brown Jug
Name: The Brown Jug
Location: 2014 S. University st.
Drinkability rating: Pretty high. A football player or two (or 10) have been known to show up at the watering hole on a Saturday night.
Urineability rating: Average. Sure, a trough filled with ice seems like a fine place to pee after you've knocked back a few, but have you ever done it sober? It's a little too awkward for Daily Sports.
Favorite story: Insert your own. Bonus points if vomiting is included.
The Little Brown Jug
BY SCOTT BELL
Even though the status of quarterback Chad Henne and running back Mike Hart remains unknown, there is one certainty: Saturday's game against last-place Minnesota is the final chance for the Wolverines to rest their starters before a stretch run at Michigan State, at Wisconsin and against Ohio State to close the season.
Whether that will happen is anyone's guess.

They're sort of strange, sort of bizarre and, well, sort of cool.
That's the best way to describe the circumstances colliding this weekend for the Michigan hockey team's home opener against Boston University.

It took about a half longer than expected, but the Michigan football team handled Minnesota 34-10 to retain the Little Brown Jug for another year.
The Wolverines were without senior quarterback Chad Henne (shoulder injury) and senior running back Mike Hart (ankle), and looked sluggish on the offensive side of the ball due to the absence of the two leaders.

What do you know? The famous saying "the more things change, the more they stay the same" rings true once again.
Five weeks have passed in the Big Ten conference race, and the top of the standings has a familiar ring to it. Just like last year, Michigan and Ohio State are the only two teams in the Big Ten without a conference loss. In fact, the Wolverines and Buckeyes are the only Big Ten teams to have fewer than two losses within the Big Ten.
