Ohio shirt pokes fun at Brady Hoke, Michigan's short tournament run
Now, it's dancing on the grave.
The Bobcats are soaking up their victory with a playful shirt that reads "MichiGone" on the front and "Now you know! We are OHIO" on the back.
That's a not-to-subtle jab at Michigan football coach Brady Hoke, who has taken to calling rival Ohio State "Ohio." It has irked the Buckeyes, who returned fire by calling the Wolverines "That Team Up North," and also Ohio, whose basketball coach called it "disrespectful."
More on the shirt, from the website of College Book Store in Athens, where the it is being sold:
Those folks up in Ann Arbor seem to have been confused lately, frequently referring to a certain other school in our state as "Ohio" when well (sic) all know there's only one Ohio!
Well, now that the Bobcats have defeated them in the NCAA basketball tournament, we bet they know our name now! And if they don't, well, maybe you can help remind them by proudly wearing this shirt.
Ohio won its following game against South Florida and will play North Carolina this week in the Sweet 16. It is the highest-seeded team remaining in the tournament.
