I heard he was told by players that if you attend MSU and play on the football team you don't have to go to class and shared this for whatever reason with his mother. She didn't like state in the first place and this took her to where she is now. I don't agree with the way she's acting but I'd be upset too if my son had chances to attend some of the schools he has been offered and chose to go to state. Nobody wishes injury but think of his future without football and the a choice isn't hard.
The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
