3. TCU didn’t win it, but Michigan didn’t lose it either

This can be a true topic to some, but the record will show differently. That makes this an overreaction for the time being. TCU made more plays then Michigan did on offense and they got more defensive stops.

The last play on offense for Michigan football in particular was dreadful. They couldn’t even time up the snap to give them a chance at a first down. Michigan lost it all on that play alone.

Some on social media believe that the refs cost Michigan the win and some blame Michigan for beating themselves.

One thing is for sure and that is that you have to give credit to TCU. Literally, no one picked them to upset Michigan and they brought it to the Wolverines from the kickoff and didn’t let up. They really outcoached the maize and blue in all aspects.

TCU has a very tough road block ahead of them in Georgia in the title game. They will give Georgia’s defense fits just like Ohio State did, but can they hold up against Stetson Bennett and the defending champs?
