Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz was very excited after dismantling Michigan 49-11 Saturday night.
RAPID REACTION: I told everyone Wisconsin would kill Michigan and end Jim Harbaugh’s career. They laughed.
Nobody is laughing anymore. pic.twitter.com/3Oyoh1yZ7C

Mertz and the Badgers hadn’t played since October 23 because of a coronavirus outbreak within the team, but that didn’t stop them from absolutely destroying Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Following the game, Mertz spoke with Holly Rowe about getting back on the field after 22 days between games, and talked about how the team just had to “stay ready.”

That’s my quarterback, folks. That’s the man now tasked with leading the Wisconsin Badgers, and he’s doing a damn good job.
I couldn’t be prouder of this team. We hadn’t played since October 23 going into Saturday night against the Wolverines!
Yet, it made no difference in the end. We showed up and showed out, and beat the living hell out Jim Harbaugh. He broke his spirit and soul.
