Michigan traveled to West Lafayette, Ind., on Saturday to take on Purdue, but it seems the Wolverines weren’t thrilled with every aspect of Ross-Ade Stadium.
According to Michigan Radio, some players spent a portion of pregame on the team bus because there was no air conditioning in the visiting locker room.
Michigan starters sitting on an air conditioned charter bus because no A/C in the visitors' locker room = bush league. Come on, Purdue.

So visitor's locker room at Purdue doesn't have AC (Purdue does) apparently Harbaugh had starters sitting on air conditioned charter bus

Michigan radio just said the visitor's locker room at Purdue is not air conditioned.

Michigan fans were critical of the lack of AC, as well as the Boilermakers’ lack of X-ray capabilities, which forced Wolverines quarterback Wilton Speight to be taken to a nearby hospital after suffering an apparent head injury.
LOL at all the tweets dragging Purdue because they don't have AC in the visiting team's locker room nor do they have X Ray capabilities.

Purdue has no AC in the visitor's locker room and No a ability to give X-rays on-site.
That school is living in the 1970s. https://t.co/3xKbGgxRrx

No AC in the locker room, no x ray machine on site. Is Purdue in the USA? #goblue

No AC in visitors locker room, no on-site x-rays – #Purdue is like a high school football operations. Get it together.

Purdue doesn't have AC in their visitors locker room so I imagine they knew better not to ask Michigan permission to wear a lighter color. pic.twitter.com/F3f70BBIwb

A representative from Purdue told Land of 10 that Ross-Ade Stadium doesn’t have air conditioning in the visiting locker room and that the same is true for other college football venues.
