Michigan fans had to watch the Wolverines get blown out at Wisconsin on Saturday and then listen to former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer dissect the loss.

Meyer, now an analyst for FOX, was on the halftime and postgame shows during Wisconsin's 35-14 win against Michigan on Saturday.

Wolverines fans might not have enjoyed this, but Buckeyes fans certainly did.

Videos of Meyer's "trying not to smile" face went viral on social media following the game.

"Urban Meyer trying not to laugh is A MOOD," one Buckeyes fan tweeted.

While Meyer likely enjoyed Michigan's embarrassing performance at Wisconsin, he did have some genuine things to say about the Wolverines' program.

"First of all congrats to coach (Paul) Chryst, we undervalued their skill, excellent team,” Meyer said on FOX. “People are going to look at that game and ask, ‘What’s the problem? Let’s blame the players and coaches.’ That’s not the case. There’s good players in that program. Every year, they recruit. Every one one of those players on that field are highly-recruited guys.

"Those coaches are (good) coaches. You have to lift up the hood and ask what is wrong. Those guys can play. They can coach. There’s a problem there. You lift up that hood and you’re not going to like what you see.”

Right now, no one is liking what they are seeing from Michigan's program (outside of Ohio State fans, of course). The Wolverines will look to right the ship beginning next Saturday against Rutgers.
