The Michigan Wolverines are the fourth-ranked team in the country according to both the USA Today Coaches Poll and the AP Poll.

But you wouldn’t know that from their first-half showing against the Maryland Terrapins on Saturday. The Wolverines entered the contest as a 17.5-point favorite according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Things looked great for the hosts early on. Michigan took a 7-0 lead less than 10 seconds into the game after a hilariously boneheaded play by the Terrapins on the game’s opening kick.

From that point on, however, Maryland took control. The Terrapins outscored the Wolverines 13-3 and led 13-10 just prior to half.

Wolverines fans were, understandably, not very happy with the performance.

Michigan Fans Have Full-Scale Meltdown After Horrible First Half Again Maryland

One fan was ready to call it a season, saying “this is turning into an absolute nightmare scenario. I mean our season’s over if we lose right?”

Another said “exposed.”

Message board user blue55 said “We could legit lose this game, unreal. I thought we were legit. They even gift wrapped a TD. Our defense stinks with the loss of hutch and Ojabo as predicted.”

While Mich0885 said “Welp guess it’s cool we’re halfway to being bowl eligible.”

The hits kept on coming as well.

Thankfully for Michigan fans, things eventually turned around.

Star running back Blake Corum took a 4th-and-1 carry 33 yards for a touchdown with 22 seconds left in the half and the Wolverines actually went into the break with a 17-13 advantage.

See, the sky isn’t falling, Wolverines fans.
