When a Michigan man was found sleeping in his car two weekends ago, his speech was slurred, his eyes were bloodshot and he’d urinated on himself. His blood-alcohol level at the police station was 0.24 percent, well above the state’s 0.17 percent super-drunk standard.

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 -48 yards, the worst ground performance since the school started playing football in 1879.
