Not surprisingly, this sparked a ton of commentary on Twitter, none of it particularly glowing, about Michigan and head coach Jim Harbaugh.
I don't understand how that is even possible. A timeout before the first play? What?- Jordan Strack (@JordanStrack) October 19, 2019

Did Harbaugh call a TO...with 15 minutes left in the 1st quarter? Like with no time running off the clock? Like before the 1st play of the game?#MICHvsPSU pic.twitter.com/zdljJWB7MM- Robert California (@teachingrascals) October 19, 2019
