Michigan fans had to watch the No. 11 Wolverines get blown out by No. 13 Wisconsin on FOX today. Then, they had to watch Urban Meyer dissect the game.

Meyer, who's now serving as an analyst for FOX, simply said something is "wrong" with the Ann Arbor program.

The former Ohio State head coach first credited Wisconsin for the 35-14 win.

"That's an excellent team. We undervalued their skill," he said.

Meyer then said that Michigan has good players and good coaches - they wouldn't be at this level if they weren't. However, the former Buckeyes' coach admitted that something is not right in Ann Arbor.

"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."

What exactly is wrong with Harbaugh's Michigan program? Many would point to the offense, which has never been at the level necessary to truly compete on a nationally elite stage. That was supposed to change this year with the hiring of Josh Gattis.

Instead, the Wolverines' offense has looked as bad as ever under Harbaugh.

And Michigan, which entered the season with legitimate College Football Playoff hopes, seems to be heading toward a disappointing multi-loss season.
