Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis offered some praise for Ohio State after their ridiculous contest Saturday.

Ohio State and Michigan played a classic on Saturday, but it's fair to say that many in the Michigan camp - Jim Harbaugh included - weren't thrilled with the officiating during the affair. A number of players, including Jourdan Lewis, also complained about the referees.

Lewis, though, appears to still be willing to give the Buckeyes credit for the win. After a screenshot of his text to Mike Weber went viral, Lewis took to Twitter to give praise to Ohio State. It's a pretty cool move, considering the tension from the game.

The loss will no doubt sting for quite some time - especially considering the mistakes the Wolverines made. Michigan will have to wait another year to try to get back on top of the rivalry.
