Michigan did not play well on Saturday night during their 24-17 loss at Notre Dame. Fans took to Twitter to voice their displeasure and the haters did the same to rip the program. Both of those things are fine, after all, we are all entitled to our opinion.
But what was a bit surprising is that former Michigan receiver Braylon Edwards also took to Twitter to rip the Wolverines. He ripped specific players and then called the program “trash.” Though Edwards ended up deleting the tweets, the damage had already been done.
While speaking to the media on Monday, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about Edwards’ harsh comments about his alma mater.
Quotes via Detroit News:
“No. 1, first of all, it’s not true. It’s not factual,” Harbaugh said of Edwards’ now-deleted tweet. “There’s nobody in our program who thinks those things about any player on our team, let alone the two players he describes. On the other level, I was disappointed a member of the Big Ten Network would choose to attack the character of two of our players. That’s disappointing.
“And, I would say, if somebody wants to attack the character of anybody on the ballclub, then come after me. I don’t think it’s right. It’s not true. And nobody in the program thinks that about any player on our team. Just so you know that’s not coming from anybody inside the program.”
Edwards, who works for the Big Ten Network, has been suspended indefinitely “due to a violation of the network’s social media guidelines.”
