White powder scare at U of Michigan Football practice

This news comes just days before the Wolverines play arch rival Ohio State.

Michigan football practice was delayed nearly two hours late this morning after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the practice field. Head coach Rich Rodriguez immediately suspended practice while police and federal agents were called to investigate.

After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the white substance, unknown to the players, was the goal line. Practice was resumed this afternoon after special agents decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again.

So what do you think the substance was? Baking soda? Talcum powder? Chalk for the football field?
