Florida's Jalen Tabor, better recognized last New Years Day as a burnt Christmas cookie due to chasing Michigan receivers all day, saying Michigan's 34-point win over Florida was just solely due to being coached well.

The quote is not indicative of its meaning out of context. His point would have been better made by saying, "Last year before playing them we didn't think Michigan was that good, just well coached." The implicit follow up would be, "Then we played them and they whipped our ass. It was surprising."

Aren't well-coached teams typically very good teams? I guess I am trying to understand whether or not Tabor is taking a swipe at Michigan or attempting to win the next Bulwer-Lytton trophy here, because if it is the latter, he isn't off to the worst start but the sentence could use a little work.
