New, comments

The fanbase and media is buzzing after the 45-14 drubbing of the Irish.

NCAA Football: Notre Dame at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan checked off three boxes on Saturday night in the form of a rivalry win, a top ten win, and a win as an underdog (in some sportsbooks) by throttling the Notre Dame Fighting Irish by a score of 45-14. The reactions were, as you would expect, rowdy.

Here’s what the media, players, and more have to say after the victory that sent Michigan to 6-2 on the season.

Tweet of the Night

Good luck finding a better reaction to Michigan’s drubbing of the Irish than this.

The Rest

MGoBlog posts, as the kids would say, a “mood.”

The Michigan Insider’s Sam Webb says this is progress no matter how you slice it.

This set of circumstances alone makes it impressive.

The team was obviously fired up over Saturday night’s turn of events.

Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit are labeling this a dud by the Irish.

Former Michigan OL Grant Newsome loved the effort, as well.

Michigan 2020 safety commit Jordan Morant chimes in.

Jim Harbaugh respects the effort and the preparation of his players.

NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate Devin Bush took notice.

Donovan Peoples-Jones did his part with a touchdown reception in the game to start putting it out of reach.

Cam McGrone, arguably the defensive MVP for the game, keeps it simple.

Michigan travels to Maryland for a noon kickoff next Saturday before a bye week on Nov. 9. After that comes another rivalry showdown with Michigan State, a road trip to Indiana and then a date with the Ohio State Buckeyes to close out the year.
