Rutgers' Flood at loss to explain Harbaugh's thinking

The Detroit News

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood, speaking to beat writers during a weekly Sunday night teleconference, was still being asked about Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and a few of the decisions made during their game.

Michigan defeated Rutgers, 49-16, last Saturday at Michigan Stadium.

Harbaugh early in the third quarter went for a two-point conversion after Michigan scored a touchdown to take a 25-point lead. Quarterback Jake Rudock ran for the conversion and the Wolverines' lead swelled to 27 points.

Flood was asked about that Sunday.

"I think if there's something coach Harbaugh wants me to know, then he'll say it to me," Flood said, according to "The other stuff, I won't comment on."

Harbaugh said the decision was dictated by the chart, but several players said they were miffed that Rutgers celebrated a field goal at the end of halftime and in the tunnel were talking trash.

"They were just saying things like, 'Oh, it's our time this second half,' 'We the comeback kids,' 'These guys can't really finish games,'" safety Jabrill Peppers said, kind of rolling his eyes at the last remark. "That's pretty much all I heard."
