The department has blamed cell phones, high-definition TV and student apathy sweeping the nation. All real problems, to be sure, but they don't explain how Michigan alienated 40 percent of its students in just two years -- and their parents, too.

How did Michigan do it? By forgetting why we love college football.

It also doesn't help that they have had above average teams only, and that Michigan and that area of the country has declining economies and people moving south in droves. But let's just blame tvs!
