The pitchforks are out for Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan football program this week, following the Wolverines' brutal loss to Ohio State.

Michigan entered Saturday's game against the Buckeyes at 10-1, ranked No. 4 in the country with eyes set on the College Football Playoff, but Harbaugh's team left Columbus with a blowout loss.

Now, everyone and their brother is seizing the opportunity to criticize the Ann Arbor program.

FOX analyst Rob Parker took a major shot at the Wolverines this afternoon.

"Michigan is the most overrated program in the history of college football. They've won one national championship since the Louisiana Purchase," he said.

That's probably a bit excessive - Michigan has won the most games in college football history - but the Wolverines certainly haven't been national championship-good in quite a while.

Can Jim Harbaugh ever get the Wolverines to that level?
