Michigan, thought to be a College Football Playoff contender before the season started, has looked horrible against Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines currently trail 28-0 in game that has been incredibly one-sided. As a result, Jim Harbaugh and his players are getting trashed by the media.
ESPN's Stephen A. Smith took to Twitter at halftime to express his thoughts on the situation. It won't shock you to hear that he's not impressed.
"The @UMichFootball had 2 Damn Weeks to prepare for this game. Can’t stop the run. Can’t pressure. No discipline. And that’s just the defense. The offense is so much worse. They should be ashamed of the way they look. They can’t run. Can’t protect the QB. Just horrible.#Damn
Michigan had a bye week after its close call against Army, so in theory, the Wolverines should have been ready to go. It does not appear that they were.
Of course, Michigan could shock the college football world and deliver a second half performance for the ages. But given the way the Wolverines have looked against Wisconsin's rushing attack, that seems a bit far-fetched.
Harbaugh has been getting crushed for his team's performance, as you'd imagine.
The second half is about to get underway.
