On Saturday afternoon, the Florida Gators avenged their 2017 season-opening loss to the Michigan Wolverines with an absolutely dominant performance in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.

Florida trailed 10-6 at one point in the first half, but went on to win the game by a final score of 41-15.

After the game, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and Florida coach Dan Mullen approached midfield for the post-game handshake. A few Gators players appeared to get in the way of a handshake and may have taunted Harbaugh.

Harbaugh was clearly upset at something as he gave Mullen a very brief slap on the stomach instead of the usual handshake and "congratulations."

Check it out.

Perhaps we're over-analyzing the every move of the Michigan head coach, but after his team got its doors blown off for the second-consecutive time, Harbaugh was visibly upset.

Both programs finished the season with a 10-3 record - though the expectations heading into the season were quite different.
