Michigan lost to Wisconsin 24-10 on Saturday. In the third quarter, Wolverines quarterback Brandon Peters had to be carted off the field after a possible head injury.
Peters was 9 for 18 for 157 yards before the injury. John O’Korn, who lost the starting job to Peters, then came off the bench in relief. But O’Korn struggled, going 2 for 8 for 19 yards.
O’Korn is in his second season with Michigan after transferring from Houston. As O’Korn struggled against Wisconsin, former Michigan star wide receiver Braylon Edwards had harsh words for the quarterback.
“Get Okorn out of there,” Edwards tweeted. “Geez Louise.”
Edwards, Michigan’s all-time leading receiver with 3,541 yards, didn’t stop there.
“Wtf approved his scholarship and transfer????????”
Not surprisingly, Michigan’s Khalid Hill quickly swooped in and defended O’Korn.
“Aye delete this shit,” Hill replied to Edwards.
