Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh was clearly in a bad mood following his team's 41-15 blowout loss to Florida in the Peach Bowl.

In addition to having a quick postgame handshake with Florida head coach Dan Mullen's, Harbaugh's post-game press conference consisted of some very blunt answers.

When asked if the team was prepared to take on a Florida team that ultimately beat them through the air and the ground, Harbaugh's response was "I thought they were ready."

The Wolverines appeared ready at the start of the game, scoring the game's first touchdown just before the end of the first quarter. But that would be the only touchdown they scored the entire game.

Florida responded with 21 unanswered points in the second and third quarters, and iced the game with two more touchdowns in the fourth. Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson had more interceptions than touchdowns for only the second time this season. The 41-15 loss was the first time in school history that Michigan had lost to Florida. Fortunately for Harbaugh, he'll still come away from the game with a hefty payday. Per USA Today's Steve Berkowitz, he gets a $200,000 bonus for appearing in a non-College Football Playoff bowl game.

Michigan finishes the season at 10-3.
