Deadspin cautions that people may have health conditions when they sound this badly while giving a speech — such as a stroke or other issue. I don’t know if it was that, something else, or just a simple matter of her being trashed — which is what it sounded like — but that was awful.
Michigan fans certainly thought she was hammered. Check out this tweet:

It also sounds like Coleman was being honored on Saturday.

She may have enjoyed a few too many toasts if that was the case.
