Mike Sainristil on flag planting: 'I was thinking about that since January'

It's seen as a sign of disrespect to the opposing program but Mike Sainristil's decision to plant the Michigan flag at midfield of Ohio Stadium after the Wolverines' rout over the Buckeyes was his way of vanquishing demons that have plagued U-M in this rivalry for years. The first win in Columbus since 2000, Sainristil had big plans for what he was going to do if the Wolverines were able to reach the pinnacle during the last weekend in November. "I was thinking about that since January," Sainristil said.
