ANN ARBOR - Well, this has got to be awkward for outgoing Michigan president Mary Sue Coleman.
Video of her halftime speech from Saturday is making the rounds on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Deadspin.com ...
Was the audio feedback warbling her speech ... or was it something else?
It prompted this response from Michigan's public affairs office and athletic director Dave Brandon.
"The awkward audio of University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman’s remarks during the halftime of the Saturday’s football game resulted when she attempted to slow her speech to deal with significant feedback from the stadium public address system," university spokesperson Rick Fitzgerald said in the statement.
"She, absolutely, had not been drinking alcohol. I want to underscore that point in the strongest possible way."
From Brandon: "I was with President Mary Sue Coleman and the current social media speculation is without merit and 100% inaccurate. We were together at multiple campus events throughout the day and I walked with her from the suites to the field prior to the halftime recognition."
The video also prompted this response.
As if Michigan hasn't become enough of a punch line.
