No One is Buying Michigan as "America's Team"

Dan Patrick: "They're not an underdog, they're Michigan. Harbaugh makes it seem like they're this plucky team that somehow rose up against the titans of the sport. TCU was America's team, that was an underdog team. Did they cheat? Michigan is America's team? I don't think America goes 'that is our team, they cheat.' The victimization here... Are they denying that something happened here? It doesn't feel like that."

Dan Patrick reacts to Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh addressing the media for the first time since beginning his punishment for sign-stealing. Dan rips the notion of Michigan being "America's team," as Harbaugh claims, and criticizes Michigan players, coaches, and fans alike for playing the victim while facing a punishment for admitted cheating.
