Former Michigan wide receiver Braylon Edwards was on another level during his alma mater’s loss to Notre Dame on Saturday night, blasting the program he once belonged to in a rant that has since been deleted in the hours after the opening game of the season.

He specifically calls out center Cesar Ruiz, quarterback Shea Patterson, the entire offensive line and assistant coaches Pep Hamilton and Jim McElwain.

WARNING: NSFW language below.

He was not done there, either.

Those are pretty strong words for someone who is supposed to be an objective observer of the game. Edwards, who was an All-American and two-time All-Big Ten performer at wide receiver, has been working as an analyst on Big Ten Network and has made the rounds on the radio before.

It should be worth mentioning that Edwards played for Jim Harbaugh in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011, but was released on Dec. 27 of that year with only 15 catches for 181 yards. We’ll leave it up to fans to decide if he is right or not.
