An old rivalry has Tom Brady — or at least those playing around him — seeing red.
The quarterback was again on the short end of the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry this week after the Buckeyes polished off their undefeated season with a win over the Wolverines. That meant Brady, a proud Michigan alum, was once more stuck wearing an Ohio State jersey for a day thanks to a running bet with former Patriots teammate and Buckeye Mike Vrabel.
Although the details are sketchy (Vrabel’s Twitter feed is the only source for such things, and the photo of Brady in Vrabel’s jersey, which Vrabel posted to gloat, is from 2006), it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the uber-competitive Brady and Vrabel would keep the bet going.
Brady is preparing for the Dolphins this week, while Vrabel is doing well in his post-NFL career. He is the defensive lines coach at none other than Ohio State.
