In 2004 Michigan enters the Tofu game 9-1, and having already earned a Rose Bowl bid. Upon arriving at Huntington Bank Stadium, and departing the team bus, Michigan is met by bomb and drug sniffing dogs courtesy of Jim Tressel. The buckfucks initially claim that all teams are sniffed as required by Homeland Security. This claim is refuted, and other coaches interviewed deny their teams were sniffed. A security guard tells Lloyd Carr that the search is ordered by the tofu athletic department:
Carr said an Ohio State police officer told him the athletic department was behind the sniffing.
"He said, 'Coach, I want you to know that we were only following orders and they were not the orders given us by our superiors.' I said, 'Well, who decided it then?' He said, 'The athletic department,'" Carr said.
