We talked about it briefly in the in game thread, all the clips of michigan players showing up super cocky were acting like they won by being there. Never seen anything like it. Theres something to be said for “been here before” and i think it showed for both victorsAfter almost 24 hours of reflection, I feel the need to express this about that effort by Michigan last night:
Granted, I was heavily leveraged in the Wolverines pretty much 10 ways to Sunday, but that might have been the most disappointing, pathetic performance I've seen among all of the semi finals blowout losers of the last several years, and that's saying something. In the past, teams like Michigan State, Washington, Cincinnati earlier yesterday and even Notre Dame just ran into a team much better than them and got outclassed. Last night, Michigan, who hadn't had a bad performance all year, laid a hideous egg, by far their worst performance of the year in the biggest moment of the last 25 years of their program's history. Literally EVERYTHING Georgia tried in the first half on offense worked perfectly. Every Michigan player failed miserably in virtually every scenario in which they were tested. It was a gutless, weak, infantile performance. I know Georgia is a fabulous team, and credit is due them for putting it on Michigan when they had the chance, but they had to laughing and thinking to themselves, "These guys are just handing this to us." Michigan showed us all year that they were on the level of the best teams in the country in my opinion. This result way more about Michigan pissing down their collective leg than Georgia doing it to them. Totally uncovered receivers. Blown assignments. Weak tackling. Dropped passes. Terrible throws. Fumbles as soon as they get a modicum of momentum offensively. Just a disgrace.
