Michigan player responds to Jalen Tabor saying Wolverines not 'that good'
Florida defensive back Jalen “Teez” Tabor spoke to reporters on Friday ahead of the Gators’ bowl game versus Iowa.
Last year, Michigan demolished Florida in the Citrus Bowl by a score of 41-7. The game was never in question — as the Wolverines completely took control from the start.
Despite the huge loss, Tabor wasn’t overly impressed with the talent that Michigan possessed:

On Saturday, Michigan senior DL Chris Wormley saw this quote from Tabor. He felt compelled to respond with this tweet:
Come on now big fella! 41-7 ?? https://t.co/HqUtLYRJmA

Tabor is correct in the sense that Michigan is a well-coached squad. However, they’re also plenty talented — as evidenced by its 10-2 record this past year.
The Washington D.C. native is likely headed for the NFL after this bowl appearance. However, Florida can prove itself to be the better team in 2017. The Wolverines and the Gators will square off versus one another in the ’17 season opener at AT&T Stadium.
