Michigan Wolverines fan blames DUI on offensive coordinator Al Borges

College football fans take some losses really rough. Sometimes to cope with the woes of their team, they’ll hit the alcohol bottles to ease the emotional pain.

After Michigan’s humbling 29-6 loss to rival Michigan State back on Nov. 3, one Wolverines fan did exactly that. The only thing is, he drove a car afterwards with generally never ends well.

Police officers in Dearborn, MI found a 25-year-old man asleep in his SUV a few hours after the crushing loss. He was asleep, but woke up as soon as the officers arrived.

Upon questioning, he readily admitted that he was indeed drunk, which was fairly obvious at that point. His blood alcohol content ended up registering at a .24, so he was really in the bag.

However, more interestingly, he went on to explain to the officer why exactly he drank so much, and he had no qualms about putting the blame directly on the Michigan football team, and the play-calling of offensive coordinator Al Borges in particular:

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.
