Over the past two seasons, the Michigan Wolverines have been one of the most dominant college football programs in the country. Jim Harbaugh’s program boasts a 25-3 overall record, a 19-1 Big Ten record, two Big Ten titles, two College Football Playoff appearances, and more. On top of this success, Michigan has seen two dominant wins over Ohio State football, prompting former Michigan football star Braylon Edwards to call out the Buckeyes in a recent podcast episode.

Former Michigan football star Braylon Edwards pulled zero punches when he went for the Ohio State football program. Edwards — who was a standout wide receiver at Michigan in the early 2000s under head coach Lloyd Carr — claims that the Buckeyes are falling apart, and that Ryan Day is one loss to Michigan football away from being fired.

“We were a couple of plays, a couple of seconds away from not losing to freaking Appalachian State in Ann Arbor, but it happened, and we lost. It is what it is,” Edwards said. “(Ohio State is) what they are now. They are a team that can’t beat Michigan.”

the former Michigan football star did not stop there, either. Braylon Edwards continued to go all-out on Ohio State football, stating that, “This is why I say it’s over. Michigan is not only beating Ohio State. They are having their way with Ohio State. It’s not even interesting in the second half, if you will, anymore. Especially in the fourth quarter, it’s just not. Ohio State fans, they are off on Ryan Day, the kids seem like they are just trying to just get basically to the NFL.

“Why, if I’m one of the best quarterbacks in the country, why would I choose a school that hasn’t had a 1,000-yard receiver since Jeremy Gallon?” Edwards asked. “Why would I choose a place that doesn’t throw the ball like that? Why would I chose that place over Ohio State where I know I could easily be a (Dwayne) Haskins, C.J. Stroud or Justin Fields and just fall in line? It’s because this program’s not as good as that program in Ann Arbor. And I know that.”

Former Michigan football star Braylon Edwards concluded his shots at Ohio State football with a dagger.

“That program is falling apart and recruits can see it,” he said.
