It seems safe to say that Michigan basketball star Hunter Dickinson won't be buying any real estate in the home state of one of his team's biggest rivals.

Appearing on the RoundBall Podcast, Dickinson went off on Indiana Hoosiers and their campus in Bloomington. He said that while there are "a lot of normal people in Ann Arbor," he found "a lot of weirdos in Bloomington."

“It’s not the best clientele. I have to say that. There’s a lot of normal people in Ann Arbor. There’s a lot of weirdos in Bloomington,” Dickinson said.

Ouch. That one has to sting. 

He said that in front of Indiana star Trayce Jackson-Davis, who laughed off Dickinson's criticism and didn't clap back with any of his own trash talk. But Jackson-Davis will likely remember that when their teams face off in February.

The fans certainly loved the trash talk though with the clip from the episode getting over 46,000 views and 200 likes since yesterday. 

It's been a hot minute since Indiana was a major threat in the Big Ten or the wider national championship picture.

But after a solid season last year that ended with most of their stars returning and bringing in an elite recruiting class, they're the highest-ranked team in the Big Ten. 

Maybe that will change before both teams begin their in-conference games this December.
