Michigan Botches Punt, Michigan State Scores Game-Winning TD

This past weekend the Michigan Wolverines lost to the rival Michigan State Spartans in one of the most heartbreaking ways that one can imagine. With time running out and victory seemingly in their grasp, punter Blake O'Neill dropped the snap, fumbled it in the air and it was then retrieved by Michigan State's Jalen Watts-Jenkins for the dramatic winning score. Needless to say, head coach Jim Harbaugh and the Michgan team is pretty down in the dumps at the moment.

That's alright, though, because someone very prominent in the world had some words for them all. That person with the pep talk was none other than President Barack Obama.

Harbaugh and his wife Sarah were actually at the White House on Monday as guests of first lady Michelle Obama, and the Michigan head coach revealed that President Obama had a message for him and the players in regards to what happened on Saturday in Ann Arbor.

"[President Obama] was great. We talked about some mutual friends that we both know, and he said the same thing you just said: 'Tough way to lose a football game,'"Harbaugh said via the Detroit Free Press. "(He) told the fellas to keep their chin up. ... (He) likes the way our team plays and he told the guys to keep it going."

Won't completely take the pain away of what took place Saturday afternoon, but it's still always special to get some words from the President of the United States. Generally interactions between sports teams and the President are limited to a team winning a title.

But, you know, that was just a brutal way to lose a game, no matter what the sport. It's hard for anyone, including the President of the United States, not to chime in.
