Michigan was dominated by Michigan State (USA Today Sports)

It’s been a tough season for Michigan, who lost back-to-back games to Michigan State and Nebraska to drop to 6-3. The loss to the in-state rival Spartans was especially disheartening to one Wolverines fan and he didn’t handle it very well.

According to the Dearborn Press & Guide, a 25-year-old man was arrested on a drunken driving charge in the early hours of November 3. The man was found passed out “with his head on his arm” at a Sunoco at 2:30 a.m.

The man, whose blood alcohol level was .24, was confused and disoriented, had slurred speech, watery and bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol. He told officers that he was “drunk,” had “a lot” of alcohol and urinated on himself.

But wait, it gets better.

While being booked, he told police he drank so much because he was upset that Michigan lost to Michigan State. He then got very specific with his complaints about the game.

“He said he also was upset with the play-calling of offensive coordinator Al Borges, whose Wolverines rushed for negative-48 yards, the worst ground performance since the school started playing football in 1879.”

I hope he made it through the Nebraska game in one piece, because Borges’ play-calling resulted in -21 yards rushing that time.
