Michigan players, both current and even former, are firing back at Florida criticism.

One of the best comes from Chris Wormley, former defensive lineman. Wormley found a July 17 tweet from Mark Thompson, who said, “The disrespect is crazy…I can’t wait till me beat the brakes off Michigan.”

Wormley then quote tweeted that July statement with his own after the Wolverines won 33-17 on Saturday.

“Home spoke a little too soon,” Wormley tweeted.

But current Wolverines players also had some strong statements in response to Florida RB Jordan Scarlett. As reported by Aaron McMann of MLive.com, Scarlett told reporters in Gainesville, Fla., that the Wolverines defensive line “don’t move sideline to sideline.”

Well, after Michigan held Florida to 11 rushing yards on 27 attempts, some Wolverines had harsh words. Thompson picked up only 13 yards on 5 attempts.

“It’s insulting,” Michigan DL Maurice Hurst said.

“I probably shouldn’t comment on this, but I just don’t really understand why Florida would come out and say all these negative things about us,” DL Chase Winovich said. “They didn’t respect us last time. Like, we beat them pretty bad (last time). You think they would respect us this time. It’s kind of sad.”

The best part? Rashan Gary reportedly used words that weren’t able to be reported.

Florida coach Jim McElwain was blunt in his assessment of the game.

“Their guys were bigger and stronger,” McElwain said. “They whooped us. Plain and simple.”
