Michigan Fan Excuses
"You can question whether they were prepared to play Florida State if you’d like. But I certainly do not think they were prepared to play without both Peppers and Jake Butt."
"Yep! Pretty much sucks cause no way they get away with that much with Peppers in."
"Peppers is the best player in the country who plays 13 positions. Cook only plays two. No comparison. FSU scores maybe 14 if Peppers is on the field."
"The entire defense had to adjust on the fly, due to Peppers being out. I understand why people think that Peppers is overrated; because much of what he does is not measurable in stats. He was the qb and glue of the secondary. His loss for that game was huge."
"Disappointed that we lost. Disappointed that the team waited until the 2nd quarter to really start playing. Not disappointed at the effort through the rest of the game. We hung with FSU and nearly beat them without two of our best players. That’s great. Doesn’t win us the game though."
"We lost by 1 to FSU, who was preseason top 5, on a neutral field…without our best defensive and offensive players."
"FSU is getting away with murder on pass interference"
"We are really missing Peppers, our offensive line and qb play is weak."
"Just getting outmatched. Quite frankly, our entire team looks really flat and I can’t blame them. Say what you will, but teams that get left out of the playoff and placed into meaningless bowl games are going to have a difficult one getting “up” for the game. Last year, we didn’t have that expectation. This bowl game was a let down for the UM players, but FSU has something to prove."
Oh, the old they aren’t motivated because the game doesn’t mean anything crutch. If the game didn’t mean anything, then why did Michigan players fight tooth and nail to get back into the game in the second half?
This tweet below is solid gold by the way:
Hahahaha!! There were some rational Michigan fans, but this thread was hilarious.
