Bashing the Wolverines wasn’t enough. This week, Steve takes shots at Ann Arbor’s citizens, too. We discuss Michigan’s dismantling of Big Ten opponent Rutgers, a game that defies basic football math, as well as Texas A&M’s wild overtime win over Tennessee’s wild overtime loss. Will ND make a bowl? Plus, the best way to spend this coming Saturday. Rate and subscribe!
