It was hard to walk into Schembechler Hall on Monday afternoon without becoming suffocated by the hoards of media members and television cameras lining the room. This week, the vibe was noticeably different.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh walked in and took the podium. His answers were terse. His tone was monotonous. There were no injury updates ahead of Michigan State. There was no discussion of the gameplan, retrospectively nor predictive. Sophomore fullback Ben Mason may or may not be injured. Junior defensive lineman Rashan Gary may or may not play.
