Tom Brady had a frustrating reason for missing the end of Michigan-Ohio State
The final moments of the Michigan-Ohio State game were tense enough to put even the most level-headed people on edge.
Take Tom Brady, who went to Michigan, in case you forgot.
During the Michigan-Ohio State game on Saturday, Brady, unfortunately, was on a plane for the Patriots’ game against the New York Jets. He and Nate Ebner, a former Ohio State walk-on, were two of several players following along with the game.
But in the middle of double overtime, the plane took off and the wifi wasn’t up.
“Guys were freakin’ out and guys were scrambling to grab the game cast,” Patriots teammate Chris Long said on The Rich Eisen Show. “It was chaos…(Brady) didn’t seem happy. It was obvious to me that he was having a rough Saturday.”
Long said he thought the plane took off when Curtis Samuel had his scramble on third down that set up the controversial fourth-and-one that J.T. Barrett converted.
Apparently the Patriots weren’t too happy to be missing the action.
“They were emotionally invested in that game. They were all over it,” Long said. “All of the sudden, people are staring at their phones, their jaws dropped.”
Long said that Brady did keep his cool in that moment. What did he do after he found out the result? Maybe that’s a different story.
Perhaps most surprising was the fact that Brady didn’t have enough pull to postpone the flight until the end of the game.
