Scott Bell:Michigan Man redefined

BY SCOTT BELL

For all the bulletin-board material the Michigan football team has manufactured this season, its loudest statement to date was just made with stone-cold silence.
Following Saturday's game in East Lansing, the Michigan football team huddled near midfield for what appeared to be a team prayer. But, it was actually a direct response to comments Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio made to the media more than two months ago.

Defense answers call against Big Ten's top tandem

BY DANIEL BROMWICH

EAST LANSING - Prior to Saturday's game against Michigan State, much of the talk centered on the Spartans' vaunted ground attack - the best in the conference, averaging more than 210 yards per game.
Pundits questioned whether Michigan's run defense could hold up against the tandem of Jehuu Caulcrick (thunder) and Javon Ringer (lightning) after five straight weeks against spread-based teams.

Political football 101: offenses, with Michigan linebackers coach Steve Szabo.
When you see spread, think red.
"I call that Communist football," Szabo said. "I'm so tired of it. Good, red-blooded Americans snap the ball, hand it to the guy and have a normal run game or pass game."

Intrastate rivalry should provide thriller

BY SCOTT BELL AND JACK HERMAN

No matter what fans think of the Michigan-Michigan State rivalry, the Spartans have done their best to raise the level of hype.
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio has a clock counting down to the start, and he even went as far as to set the Wolverines as a model for his program.
Michigan has a seven-game winning streak to defend after its 0-2 start - not to mention it wants the Paul Bunyan Trophy.
The Spartans need a win to save a disappointing season while the Wolverines still have a Big Ten Championship on their mind.

Ohio State faces another conference test

BY BY MARK GIANNOTTO

Two recent developments have changed the very core of Halloween. First, it has transformed from a one-day trick-or-treating fest into a week-long event because the actual holiday falls on Wednesday. Can anyone say five-night weekend?
Second, costumes have gotten truly ridiculous. Last night, one of my roommates wore a Michael Vick jersey, complete with a stuffed dog hanging from a noose. What happened to ghosts and vampires?
