To say today's game at Wisconsin was a big one for Michigan would be an understatement. The Wolverines have yet to win a big road game under Jim Harbaugh. This was supposed to, maybe, be the day it finally happens.

It's not looking good.

Michigan is trailing Wisconsin, 21-0, midway through the second quarter of today's game at Camp Randall Stadium.

The Badgers have just dominated the line of scrimmage against the Wolverines, running the ball down Michigan's throat.

Harbaugh is getting ripped on social media for his team's performance.

"It’s officially panic time for Michigan and the Jim Harbaugh era. Wolverines are getting bullied on both lines of scrimmage, offense looks completely lost, Don Brown’s mystique is gone. Massive problems for Michigan," Michigan beat writer Kyle Rowland tweeted.

"No reason to worry Michigan fans. Certainly Jim Harbaugh has a plan for being down 21-0," Finebaum tweeted.

"This Wisconsin team is what I envisioned Jim Harbaugh's Michigan teams looking like by year five. Now 21-0 Badgers," Chris Balas tweeted.

Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer had called this one a "must win" for Harbaugh's team before the game.

“At some point it has to happen. They have to go on the road and they have to win as an underdog. I think this is a must-win game. They have to go to Madison and win today," Meyer said.

It's early, of course, but it's looking like this "must win" is going to be a loss. The Wolverines need to turn this one around - and fast.
