Apparently Florida RB Mark Thompson wants more respect — and he’s expecting the Gators will rout Michigan.
“The disrespect is crazy… I can’t wait till we beat the brakes off Michigan,” Thompson wrote on Twitter.
In case either the Wolverines or Gators needed more motivation for their game, the teams have it now. Michigan-Florida is set for 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday, Sept. 2, at AT&T Stadium. The game will be on ABC.
Michigan easily beat the Gators the last time the two powers met, winning 41-7 in the Citrus Bowl during the 2015 season.

Thompson didn’t make clear why or how he feels disrespected. Whether it’s him personally, the team or both, Thompson is ready to prove those doubters wrong.
Last season, Thompson rushed for 299 yards and 2 touchdowns on 68 attempts.
