Yesterday, microphone feedback was blamed for the super bizarre speech given by Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman at halftime of the Nebraska game. There won't be such a defense for this Wolverine Lake man:
The man appeared confused and disoriented. His speech was slurred, his eyes were watery and bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol. He said he was “drunk,” he had “a lot” of alcohol and urinated on himself.
His blood-alcohol level at the police station was 0.24 percent, above the state’s 0.17 percent super-drunk standard. The man’s car was impounded.
While he was being booked, he said he drank so much because he was upset that the University of Michigan’s football team lost 29-6 at Michigan State University the day before. He said he also was upset with the play-calling of Offensive Coordinator Al Borges, whose Wolverines rushed for a negative-48 yards, the worst ground performance since the school started playing football in 1879.
So for those scoring at home, Al Borges has literally driven a man to drink and drive. In related news, where are we at with the "We Love You, Borges!" tifo?
