Michigan captain calls out fans who left Ohio State game
You had to know somebody to get into the Big House when Ohio State came to down in the regular-season finale. The game was one of the biggest showdowns in college football this year, and both teams still had an outside shot to win the B1G East.
But by the middle of the fourth quarter, Ohio State led by 29. The game had already been decided. Like in most games that are one-sided, a bunch of fans left the stadium.
Well, two weeks later, that still didn’t sit well with Michigan linebacker Joe Bolden.
Bolden: 'To fans who stayed for the last snap (vs Ohio State), thank you. To those who didn't, look in the mirror.'

For guys like Bolden, it was senior day. The last time they ever played in Michigan Stadium happened to be one of the toughest moments to swallow.
Bolden added that the Wolverines “got their butts kicked” by their rivals and that it was still “hard to fathom.”
Frustrating loss aside, Bolden has a chance to end his career leading Michigan to a Citrus Bowl victory against Florida. There’s no doubt the Wolverines will have plenty of support in Orlando for the New Year’s Day showdown.
Reaching double-digit wins in Jim Harbaugh’s first season would give Michigan fans plenty of reasons to cheer for.
