Buckeyes assistant takes jabs at Brady Hoke, Wolverines

As someone who grew up knee-deep in it, and as I’ve stated hundreds of times before, Michigan-Ohio State is — IN MY OPINION — the greatest rivalry in all of sports.

Thanks to a member of the OSU coaching staff, we’re reminded that the football grudge match is indeed one of those 24/7/365 deals.

At a Spring Kickoff event Tuesday in Columbus, some members of the Buckeyes staff, including head coach Urban Meyer, spoke to a group of supporters in attendance at the annual shindig.  Among those who spoke to the crowd was co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Ed Warinner, who used his time at the mic to lob a couple of playful jabs at “That School Up North.”

Courtesy of the Twitter feed of the esteemed Buckeye Sports Bulletin writer Marcus Hartman, here are a couple of the highlights of the coach’s stand-up routine:

(Somewhere, the Old Ball Coach is getting a chuckle over the coloring jab.)

For the record, Ohio State’s last trip to Pasadena was after the 2009 season while Michigan’s was just three years earlier.  UM has played in 20 Rose Bowls — second all-time to USC’s 33 — OSU 14.  The former is 8-12 in those games, the latter 7-7.

    Sounds like a bucknut. Hope MSU kicks there ass some more. He sounds like another UM.

    To be the greatest rivalry both teams would have to be relevant. Neither has been the past 10 years. Auburn-bama is a bigger rivalry. They play in the bed conference, play in the same state, and 4 championships and 5 championship games in the past 5 years.

    It will fun to watch these two teams fight to see who can win 2nd place in the new B1G East.

    Yeah, because msu has a track record of sustained success… give me a break. Alabama and Auburn will never, ever, be bigger, because when Bama/auburn fans aren’t cheering for “their” team, they’re cheering for the other.

    That’s funny. I can see Brady Hoke just coloring away!

    What’s with the “bed conference”? Is that where the “athletes” sleep in all day instead of going to class?

    You’d figure he’d be more worried about another one of those buckeye boys getting arrested.

    Again.

    He’s right. Michigan is a joke.

    Once Hoke puts his crayons down, it’s gonna get real.

    There may never have been another guy who made more out of a single good year than Hoke. He made his name by going 12-1 in his final year at Ball State. What everyone forgets is he was 22-37 entering that season.

    Clemson – University of South Carolina is a much better rivalry than this. This is a great rivalry for the northern Midwest but nothing compared to southern football.

    Comical, this the best you have? I believe I just saw an Alabama RB just got arrested for Marijuana in his car?

    I sure hope you are not a Michigan fan…Frank Clark, Stonum, Toussiant…shall I go on? Think before you speak! :)

  12. groundcontrol2304 says: Apr 2, 2014 8:06 PM

    Clems vs South Carolina a better rivalry than OSU-UM, LMAO…..

  13. classyjacklambert says: Apr 2, 2014 8:37 PM

    Yeah since both Clemson and South Carolina beat both of those teams in the last two years and pretty much any other time they played… Very laughable.

  14. classyjacklambert says: Apr 2, 2014 8:41 PM

    I will say this, Michigan-OSU had a great run at looking like the premium show in town when they didn’t have to play anyone of substance… Sadly for them that illusion shattered when Florida trounced OSU 8 years ago. Since then this rivalry is b-list.

    If you care so much about the rivalry get the facts straight. OSU went to the Rose Bowl after the 2009 season not 2010. I’m not even a Buckeyes fan and I knew that.

    Greatest rivalry? In all of sports? Really, John? Try Alabama-auburn, dude.

    Auburn- Bama barely in Top 10! Clemson vs SC not even listed…lol, clown show in the South!

    Enjoy the list!

    @youthinkyouknow:

    As a previous poster said, it can’t be the greatest rivalry when the two “hated” rivals root for their rival when they play an OOC game. Auburn/Bama is ONE of the greatest rivals and for people w/ short memories it’s been great the last 4 years…but Auburn is a Johnny Come Lately…Bama has to carry that rival w/ all their history….Auburn can’t go undefeated w/o sanctions or accusations (1993, 2010)

    ===============================================
    When the QB gets engaged to a girl from the other university, it is nothing more than a friendly rivalry.

    Meh, Bammer/barn may be better on the field right now, but if Saban knew how to coach a field goal attempt, UM/tOSU would’ve been last years best game. Anyway, good to see the coach flinging poo in the proper direction.

  22. iwishwvuwouldbeatbama says: Apr 3, 2014 8:15 AM

    These comments occur for one reason only, to sell tickets! Coaches have to promote there brand also and that is all this was. People who think Auburn-Bamma is a better rivalry are short sighted. It only has been a more nationally relevant in the past 5 years.

  23. michiganstillsucks says: Apr 3, 2014 8:33 AM

    To the hillbillies thinking Clemson vs South Carolina and Auburn-bama are bigger rivalries than OSU v M? LOL go fix your teeth. The south will NEVER ride again

    A loss to a team not involved in a rivalry has no bearing at all on the rivalry. Because the Orioles beat the Red Sox, Red Sox/Yankees is diminished? LOL.
