Michigan basketball did it’s talking on the court, but the Michigan Athletics Twitter account did its talking after the Wolverines dropped Texas A&M 99-72 on Thursday in the Sweet 16 of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
Earlier this week, ESPN had made the Wolverines the No. 15 seed in the Sweet 16 and after Michigan responded by pounding the Aggies wire to wire to go to the Elite Eight, the athletics account made its feelings known.

The story said the Wolverines took down an easy opponent in Montana, which only scored 47 points, then narrowly topped Houston on a buzzer-beater. Both valid points, but 12 wins in a row including a Big Ten Tournament title are hard to overlook.
For what it’s worth, the Aggies were seeded No. 7.
The Wolverines will continue to try to prove ESPN and any other doubters wrong in the Elite Eight.
