UPDATE 11/11 10:18 a.m.

Michigan spokesman Rick Fitzgerald acknowledged the awkward audio, but said it was due to "significant feedback" from the PA system at Michigan Stadium.

“She, absolutely, had not been drinking alcohol,” Fitzgerald wrote in a statement. “I want to underscore that point in the strongest possible way.”

Via Deadspin, comes this video of Michigan president Mary Sue Coleman speaking at halftime of the Wolverines' game with Nebraska Saturday.

Was she drinking prior to making this speech? Or was it just a result of the delay in stadium acoustics? We'll leave that to you to decide (mostly because we're not big fans of libel suits).
