Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh didn't hold back when discussing his team's loss at Wisconsin this afternoon.

The Wolverines' head coach had a brutally honest admission following the blowout loss at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

"We were out-prepared, out-played, out-coached ... the whole thing," Harbaugh told reporters at his postgame press conference.

Michigan came into the game against Wisconsin as a small underdog. The Wolverines trailed 28-0 at halftime and ended up losing, 35-14, in a game that wasn't as close as the final score made it out to be.

FOX analyst Urban Meyer reacted to Michigan's loss on the postgame show.

“There’s a problem here. You have to lift up the hood and see what’s wrong,” Meyer said of the Wolverines' program.

“You lift up that hood and you’re not going to like what you see.”

This is Year 5 for Harbaugh and it was supposed to be the breakthrough year. Michigan was a popular Big Ten champion and College Football Playoff team pick heading into the 2019 season.

Now, the question might be if Michigan is going to lose three or four games...or more.

The remaining schedule is pretty brutal, with games remaining against Iowa, Notre Dame, Penn State, Ohio State and Michigan State, among others.

Michigan should get into the win column next weekend, at least, as the Wolverines host Rutgers in Ann Arbor.
