Jabrill Peppers still isn't over the Ohio State loss
Jabrill Peppers has been showered with a bevy of major awards and accolades. Since the regular season ended, it seems as if the Michigan redshirt sophomore receives a new one every day.
But the Heisman Trophy finalist isn’t exactly sleeping easy.
The Ohio State loss still stings.
“I didn’t talk for about a week (after the loss),” Peppers said on the Rich Eisen Show. “I’m still not over it.”
Besides the simple act of losing a thrilling game to a rival with B1G Championship and College Football Playoff implications, it was the fashion in which it happened that stayed with Peppers.
There were three calls that irked Jim Harbaugh, who sounded off on the officiating after the double overtime loss.
Peppers wasn’t exactly thrilled with them, either.
“I go into away games not expecting to receive any calls, especially when we go into the Shoe,” Peppers said. “I don’t expect any calls or any leniency whatsoever. But some of those calls were blatant.”
Peppers said that he’s not one to complain and that he still felt like the Wolverines should’ve won that game. He made sure not to put all of the blame on the officials.
“Some of those calls were bad, but at the end of the day, we were still in position to win that game,” Peppers said. “We didn’t capitalize.”
