Jim Harbaugh was seen as perhaps the ultimate "Michigan Man" candidate to lead the team back to true national title contention. Fast forward a few seasons, and a number of prominent former Wolverines are off the Harbaugh bandwagon.

Charles Woodson, one of the greatest players in program history, has just about had it with the Wolverines' offense. He took to Twitter to complain about the repeated wide receiver screens that hadn't been panning out earlier in the game.

He's not alone. On the other end, plenty of Michigan fans had serious questions about a defensive call that left Penn State superstar wide receiver KJ Hamler one-on-one deep down the field against a Michigan safety.

It...it didn't go well.

Quarterback Sean Clifford found Hamler for a 53 yard touchdown. He has six catches for 108 yards and two scores on the day.

After the play, former Michigan All-American linebacker and longtime NFL player Larry Foote had some very legitimate questions about the defense.

It has been this way for much of the season for Michigan, especially during the Wisconsin game in which the wheels really fell off for the Wolverines. There've been questions about the program's direction under Jim Harbaugh for some time now, and they've heated up big time.

Tonight's game is far from over, though. Michigan answered with a score after that long Hamler touchdown, and trail by just a touchdown, with the ball.

Penn State leads 28-21 with just under seven minutes left in tonight's game at Beaver Stadium.
