Michigan was thoroughly outclassed by Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon in Madison, and most Wolverines fans are trying to figure out why Jim Harbaugh hasn't been able to return the program to elite status. Former Michigan star Jake Long took to Twitter to vent his frustration as well.

Long, who was the No. 1 overall pick by the Miami Dolphins back in the 2008 NFL Draft, said what "bugged" him the most wasn't what happened during any actual plays in the game. Long was upset by how Michigan's players were walking on/off the field during the game.

He tweeted a video of Michigan's players trotting onto the field late in the fourth quarter. He was not impressed with their effort.

Here's the clip:

To be fair, the game was already in hand for Wisconsin. But Long clearly still believes the players should have better body language regardless.

Michigan will get Rutgers next week. They are in serious need of a win.
