In differentiating between an investigative piece and a smear campaign, I think 1 question needs to be asked. Did the 2 douchebags ever call someone at Michigan to ask them some questions?? It would appear to me that if I was doing a piece on Michigan Football practices and potential violations that I would try to contact Rodriguez or a compliance officer for an explanation or so I understood the rules and how Rodriguez interpreted them before I moved forward with my research. Was this done or attempted??
At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
