Things couldn’t possibly fall to more embarrassing levels for the University of Michigan football program. At 3-5 on the season and following a blowout loss to state-rival Michigan State, Brady Hoke’s tenure as the program’s head coach is all but over.
While that’s what many will want to talk about in the coming week or however long Hoke actually keeps his job, Michigan’s performance this season can be defined by one atrocious Devin Gardner interception on Saturday against Michigan State.
Need another angle?
What exactly Gardner was looking at here, none of us know.
The good news (if there is any) Michigan scored its first touchdown against the Spartans in nearly 12 quarters with a garbage-time score by De’Veon Smith.
Michigan State won by the final of 35-11.
