Today is not a good one for Michigan fans, to say the least. Down 28-0 in the first half to Wisconsin, even the Wolverine legends like Charles Woodson are struggling to keep things positive.

Woodson, who now works on FOX's college football halftime show after being let go by ESPN, shared what he would tell the team at halftime. And then on Twitter, he admitted how he was feeling about things.

"I'm gonna cry after the halftime show," the Michigan and NFL legend admitted. He's certainly not alone among the maize and blue out there.

On the field, it is hard to imagine how things could be going worse for Woodson's Wolverines. Midway through the third quarter, the Badgers are dominating in just about every facet.

Star running back Jonathan Taylor has 174 yards and two touchdowns on just 16 carries so far. As a team, the Badgers have run for 270 yards and four scores, gaining 7.1 yards per carry.

The passing game hasn't been quite as explosive, but Jack Coan has been very accurate and efficient, completing 13-of-15 throws for 128 yards so far.

Meanwhile, Michigan has been held to 21 yards rushing (2.3 yards per carry), and quarterback play has been incredibly poor.

Shea Patterson has been benched after going 5-for-14 for 87 yards and a pick. Dylan McCaffrey has subbed in, but is just 1-for-4 for nine yards to start.

It is going to be a long trip home for the Wolverines, and a long college football Saturday for Charles Woodson and the thousands of Michigan alumni out there, unless something changes and fast.
