ANN ARBOR, Mich. — There’s one former Wolverine who wasn’t happy with the way Michigan looked against Notre Dame on Saturday.
After the game, former Michigan wide receiver Braylon Edwards, now an analyst for Big Ten Network, took to Twitter on a profanity-laced tirade, disparaging his former, and his brother Berkley’s current team.
It drew strong reactions from other former players, such as Khalid Hill (see tweet above).
Asked about people who disparage the team at his weekly press conference on Monday, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh specifically called out Edwards’s tweet, taking umbrage with what he had to say and about the players as well.
“Number one, first of all, it’s not true,” Harbaugh said. “It’s not factual. There’s nobody in our program that thinks those things about any players on our team, let alone the players that were described.
“On another level, it’s disappointing that a member of the BTN would attack the character of our players. That’s disappointing.”
And, it turns out there are consequences to Edwards’ actions. Per the Big Ten Network’s Pat Kenny:
Effective as of Sunday, Sept. 2, Braylon Edwards has been suspended indefinitely from his role at the Big Ten Network due to a violation of the network’s social media guidelines.
