After taking a 9-3 halftime lead and building it to a 19-3 margin, Michigan completely fell apart thanks to FIVE second-half turnovers, gave up 23 unanswered points, and lost the Outback Bowl 26-19 to South Carolina.
Needless to say, twitter had some fun.
Let this sink in…SC fired their offensive coordinator on Dec 2nd and let a GRADUATE ASSISTANT call the plays today. A graduate assistant called a better game than the Michigan coaching staff did today and both teams had the same amount of time to prepare.

Yah that’s tough. Also apparently head coach Jim Harbaugh hasn’t defeated a winning team in awhile.
Updating the Harbaugh numbers. Michigan will kick off 2018 season Sept. 1 at Notre Dame having not beaten a team with winning record in 665 days.

And apparently their own conference doesn’t know who they are anymore.
Big Ten: Who's this?
Michigan: It's me, Michigan
Big Ten: Sorry fam wrong number

We knew Ohio State fans would chime in.
Michigan, it’s up to you to finish off the #B1G perfect bowl season

Actually that one was more of a double-burn as they used Michigan’s other rival, Michigan State, to pile it on.
Maybe Michigan shouldn’t let their kicker do the trash talking at halftime? Maybe?

You know when a program as historically great as Michigan goes down, all the haters have fun. Even Iowa got in the mix.
Dear Michigan. You ruined everything. pic.twitter.com/NjCiz3D3Jb

7-1 thanks to Michigan…
