Jim Harbaugh, Michigan players react after blowout loss against Ohio State

Michigan football is as numb as you are.

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Michigan Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan Wolverines lost to the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday by a score of 56-27 at the Big House, dropping their record to 9-3 on the season and suffering an eighth-straight loss at the hands of their rivals down the road.

That was brutal and another humbling and disheartening effort to end the season against the Buckeyes and Michigan players knew once again what had just happened. Here are some of the reactions from after the game.

The most notable reaction was Jim Harbaugh’s, who took exception to a question from a reporter that asked where he thought the biggest gap between Michigan and Ohio State is right now, whether it be talent, schematics, or coaching.

As far as Harbaugh’s takeaway from the game goes...

Quarterback Shea Patterson was hoping for another shot at a potential win against the Buckeyes, but things did not go as planned. He is as frustrated as anyone to go out like that as a senior.

That said, he is glad he got to live out his dream of quarterbacking the Michigan football team.

Tight end Sean McKeon kept his thoughts simple and to the point.

Defensive end Aidan Hutchinson told reporters that “you won’t win games giving up 50 and 60 points” and believes his team is much better than what the stat sheet showed from Saturday’s game.

And finally, Jordan Glasgow has the reaction that just about sums it up perfectly.

Next up for Michigan is eight days of waiting before finding out where they will be headed during bowl season.
