Tom Brady Defends the Michigan Wolverines in Ohio State Matchup
I’ve been into NFL football more lately, but I still love my college games. One huge college game is on the way on Nov. 25, with the Michigan Wolverines taking on the Ohio State Buckeyes. I’m a Michigan State University grad, but I still get the massive nature of this rivalry. The game is in Ann Arbor, so I’m making a note to avoid the city that day, since traffic will be insane. Regardless, the Wolverines have a big fan in a graduate from there. Tom Brady is defending the Michigan Wolverines in their Ohio State matchup.
In fact, Brady is so sure Michigan will that he’s betting one of his Super Bowl rings. But, that’s not the whole story.
The University of Michigan album and seven-time champion made a bet with former Buckeyes star C.J. Stroud this week on his “Let’s Go!” podcast, putting his “ring” on the Wolverines. But, he was quick to backtrack. “So,” Brady said to Stroud on the show, “if Ohio State wins…how about this, you get one of my Super Bowl rings.” Woah! But, then, Brady made it clear that he was just joking. He added, “And if Michigan beats Ohio State, then you got to give me all your youth, your agility, your time in the 40 and all your future years in the NFL.”
Stroud had fun with it, saying, “All right, that’s a bet. That’s a bet.” But, then he also said, “I’m not going to take your Super Bowl rings, Tom! I’m not going to lie. That’s yours, bro, I want to get my own.” What a fun exchange.
The big Michigan vs. Ohio State matchup is set for noon. Both teams are playing some of their best football this year, so the world will be watching this one. Next year’s game, if you’re interested, will be Nov. 30 at Ohio State, according to the Big 10 schedule.
