The Michigan defense played its best game of the season against Notre Dame. Chris Williams/Icon SMI

Hopefully Michigan fans have not allowed themselves to let the Notre Dame loss spill over into this week, because I have bad news: There's still another week and a half before the next game.

But here's the silver lining: I'll answer four questions this week to help carry fill the down time. I know, I know. And, you're welcome.

We love hearing from our readers and next week, as you still await the Big Ten season, Mike will be answering some questions (though, I can't promise he'll answer four). So make sure you tweet your questions to @mikerothstein or email him at michaelrothsteinespn@gmail.com.

Now, on to this week.
