Brady Hoke: Notre Dame is ‘Chickening Out’ of Series with Michigan
Part of the tradition for Michigan is their annual match-up with Notre Dame. A rivalry that has produced some of the most memorable games in college football history, is actually scheduled to conclude after the 2014 college football season. Hoke was asked about the ending of this special rivalry at the Michigan Sports Commission Annual Luncheon, and didn’t hold anything back about his thoughts on the matter.
Per Mlive: “The Notre Dame game, that rivalry, which they’re chickening out of. They’re still gonna play Michigan State, they’re gonna play Purdue, but they don’t want to play Michigan. I don’t know how they made that decision … I really do … But anyway, that’s a great national rivalry game. It’s a great game.”
Hoke brings up some great points. Why continue to play Purdue and Michigan State, but drop Michigan once Michigan gets good. Sad to see a great rivalry go away.
