Another week, another embarrassing performance by the Michigan football program.
Last week, it came against Wisconsin. The Wolverines were significantly out-matched by the Badgers at the Big House in Ann Arbor. Michigan lost to Wisconsin, 49-11, in a primetime game on ABC.
“We were thoroughly beaten in every phase, really did not do anything well. Did not play good, did not coach good. Not in a good place with the execution, not in a good place with adjusting. … Not a good place as a football team right now, and that falls on me,” Harbaugh told reporters after the loss.
Tonight, Michigan is taking on Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights should be a winnable game for the Wolverines, but this isn’t a normal Michigan year.
It’s Rutgers 14, Michigan 0 midway through the second quarter. There’s still plenty of time left in this one – and it’s only a two-score game – but still, this is embarrassing.
Michigan should not be at a place where it looks out-matched by Rutgers.
Rutgers now up 14-0 on Michigan (!!) Greg Schiano has wasted little time getting the Scarlet Knights going. That team is playing with a different energy than it had the past few years.

Michigan’s football program might be hitting a new low on Saturday night.
The Wolverines trail the Scarlet Knights by two scores. Tonight’s game is airing on the Big Ten Network.
