Tom Brady Took A Friendly Jab At Mike Vrabel, Ohio State Last Night

Tom Brady still knows how to hurt Ohio State.

Michigan was 4-1 against Ohio State in the five years Tom Brady was in Ann Arbor. Brady himself was 1-1 as a starter against the Buckeyes, beating them as a senior in 1999.

If you're a part of a rivalry like Michigan-Ohio State, it never leaves you. Just because you graduate doesn't mean you stop trying to best your rival.

During last night's Super Bowl media night in Minneapolis, Brady was asked about his former New England Patriots teammate Mike Vrabel. Vrabel was recently hired to be the head coach of the Tennessee Titans.

In his response, Brady couldn't resist taking tossing some casual shade at Vrabel, a former Buckeye.

“Unfortunately (Vrabel) picked a terrible college to go to, but not everybody can get into Michigan, so I understand he had to go to Ohio State,” Brady said.

That's a burn, but Brady was clearly kidding. He called Vrabel's choice of college "probably the only negative thing I could say about him" and praised him tremendously.

You can read all of Brady's quotes on Vrabel below.

Brady and the Patriots will go for their sixth Super Bowl title in Super Bowl LII Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vrabel was a part of three of those championships. Even though he was a standout linebacker, Vrabel might be best known for catching two touchdown passes as an extra tight end in Super Bowl XXXVIII and XXXIX.
