Michigan just missed completing a remarkable comeback against Penn State in Saturday’s 28-21 loss to the Nittany Lions.

After falling behind 21-0 early on, Michigan responded well. The Wolverines did well in limiting Penn State the rest of the way and clawed all the way back into the game.

In fact, Michigan was a fourth-and-goal conversion away from tying the game at 28-all. Unfortunately, receiver Ronnie Bell was unable to hang on for the touchdown while trying to fend off a defender in the end zone.

After the game, Bell was criticized by some members of the Michigan fanbase for his late drop. Overlooking his four catches for 71 yards in the loss, some honed in on his late drop while dishing out some inappropriate comments. One email sent to Bell even led his father to respond to the comments publicly.

On Sunday, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit was among those to call out those sending nasty messages to Bell. While he admitted that it was a “vocal minority,” Herbstreit blasted those crushing Bell for a late mistake.
