For the 14th time in 15 meetings, Michigan football lost to archrival Ohio State. The program's most famous alumnus, legendary quarterback Tom Brady, is worn down by the rivalry.
After the game, Brady took to Instagram to exasperatedly joke about the team's Saturday loss in Buckeye fan LeBron James' comments.
With this loss, Brady also lost a bet to Ohio State alumnus and New England Patriots teammate Nate Ebner. He'll have to wear some Buckeye apparel going forward, and he seems quite upset about it.
When asked about Michigan football's loss, Tom Brady was not thrilled with the program's inability to "win a big game."
“Unfortunately, I lost a bet to Nate Ebner and already paid him his money," Brady said Monday on Mut and Callahan. "I have to wear some ridiculous outfit, but man, freakin’ Wolverines. They can’t win a big game, man. That was pretty crappy to watch.”
“We’ve lost to them so much," he added. "I feel like I never win any of these bets. That’s alright. I’ll keep trying.”
He is looking forward to the possibility of playing in the Rose Bowl. If Ohio State makes the playoff, it should send the Wolverines to Pasadena for the first time since 2007. Still, the College Football Playoff was sitting right there, and Michigan got absolutely destroyed with it on the line.
“It should be [the only game that matters]," he said. "Yeah, that is the big one. They haven’t been close. Maybe last year we were a little closer, but still 60-something points, that was tough to swallow. Maybe we can get to the Rose Bowl. I think if a few things go our way we get to the Rose Bowl. That will be a good consolation.”
The Wolverines were 3-1 against Ohio State during Brady's time on the roster. He was 1-1 as the starting quarterback against the Buckeyes.
