Wisconsin WR George Rushing is frustrated. He thinks Michigan’s Jourdan Lewis committed a penalty on the interception.
Lewis’ one-handed grab dominated highlight recaps after Michigan’s 14-7 win Saturday in a top-10 showdown. But Rushing thought there should have been a flag.
Rushing shared a photo on Twitter that, at least to him, proves he was at least held by Lewis during the play. He also had the words, ‘Ima just leave this here’ above the photo.

Though most reactions to Lewis’ play have been incredibly positive, including SportsCenter ranking it second on its Top 10 list, Lewis has received criticism. Some say the interception hurt Michigan’s field position. But others believed Lewis did in fact commit a penalty.

Lewis responded to criticism on Sunday. He went to Twitter to say he didn’t impede the runner.
“Didn’t impede the runner, simply gauged myself. It was a under thrown ball. But it’s social media people will hate,” Lewis said.
Rushing had earlier tweeted his disagreement with some calls from the game.
For sure don't agree with some of the calls and no calls from last night but we will shake back we have a great team with great coaches

On Monday, however, Rushing made it clear where he stood.
