Rich Eisen, Michigan alum, trolls Ohio State during Hall of Fame dinner in Canton
Rich Eisen can be counted among the many Michigan fans maximizing their enjoyment over last season’s 42-27 U-M win over rival Ohio State. In Canton, Ohio, the NFL Network host made sure to rub it in.
Eisen, a Michigan alumnus, brought up The Game in his opening speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Gold Jacket dinner Friday night:
“Please silence all mobile devices. Also, for your safety, I’m being asked to tell you for the safety off all those in attendance, please take a moment to locate the nearest exit in case of an emergency. And if you need help locating that nearest exit, just think of yourself as a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes in the middle of the 4th quarter last November in Michigan Stadium. That’s the way you look for an exit.”
Eisen continued, sharing that he was greeted at his hotel with a whispered “go blue.”
“I told him, ‘say it with your chest.’ You can say it 42 times – like we did against Ohio State last November. … Hassan Haskins just scored again.”
This is the first time in 10 years that Eisen and Wolverine fans have had a whole offseason to savor the outcome of The Game. We’ll see who’s talking after the Nov. 26 meeting in Columbus.
