After getting the school's largest loss in over a century, Rutgers players and coaches said their defeat to Michigan was "embarrassing" and that the team is "hurt" emotionally.
Michigan's biggest win since 1939 came at the expense of a struggling Rutgers squad, which totaled just 39 yards, two first downs and punted the ball 16 times. The Scarlet Knights also went 0-for-17 on third-down chances.
"It just feels like playing a video game -- we just got spanked," senior DB Anthony Cioffi said, according to NJ.com. "We played hard, though. All four quarters. I love my brothers, but not the outcome we wanted."
Rutgers' worst loss since 1888 now puts the team 2-4 on the year after starting 2-1 after three games.
"I think everyone is hurt," quarterback Zach Allen said. "You don't lose that badly and not have some sort of feeling for it. But it's the 24-hour rule: You can pout or you can cheer for 24 hours, and then you get over it."
