Georgia ‘bigger, more athletic’ than Michigan, Desmond Howard says

Georgia ‘bigger, more athletic’ than Michigan, Desmond Howard says.. Second-ranked Michigan looked overmatched during Friday’s loss to Georgia in the Orange Bowl, the second of two blowouts in the College Football Playoff semifinals this season.

College GameDay analyst and former Michigan star Desmond Howard reacted to the Wolverines’ performance during Saturday’s show.

“(Georgia) set the tone right out the gate,” Howard said. “Moved the ball right down the field and Stetson Bennett was very accurate. They attacked the outside edges of Michigan’s defense. They had a brilliant game plan offensively. Standing on the field and watching these guys, they’re big and athletic. Much bigger than Michigan. Like (Jim) Harbaugh said, they were the better team.”

Michigan turned it over twice, failed to maintain their season-long control in the trenches and didn’t have an answer for Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett, who threw three touchdown passes and eclipsed the 300-yard passing mark early in the second half.

Harbaugh believes Michigan took the next step this season and is heading into the right direction.

“Keep building and attacking. I think our ballclub was in position to do it and weren’t able to get it done tonight, but always building and attacking at the same time,” Harbaugh said.

Georgia moves on to play Alabama in the national championship game next month in search of the program’s first title since 1980.
