ESPN's Mike Greenberg picked Michigan to beat Ohio State today, but that didn't stop him from criticizing the Wolverines in the first half.

During an OSU touchdown drive in the second quarter, Michigan was flagged for removing running back J.K. Dobbins' shoe during a pile-up. Carlo Kemp and Aidan Hutchinson combined on the theft.

The move cost the Wolverines 15 yards.

It also drew the ire of Greenberg, who tweeted it was a "bush league" move.

Even taking his shoe has done little to stop Dobbins today. The star running back has 90 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns already.

Michigan has been able to move the ball and put points up on the Buckeyes, but the UM defense has struggled. The Ohio State run game has been potent and Justin Fields has hit on a few big plays in the passing game, throwing for 145 yards and a touchdown despite completing only six of his first 12 attempts.

Ohio State leads Michigan 21-13 midway through the second quarter. The Buckeyes just recovered a muffed snap by Michigan as the Wolverines were driving deep in OSU territory.

Ohio State gets the ball to start the second half, so it will be critical for Michigan to close out the first half strong.
