Michigan Football: Matt Dudek trolled Notre Dame and won

Michigan Football’s Director of Recruiting saw a tweet from Notre Dame and decided to correct it. His response was priceless.

Notre Dame thought that sending a few kids to study abroad meant the world is their classroom. Matt Dudek, Michigan Football‘s Director of Recruiting, realized their mistake and corrected them.

Notre Dame sent five of their football players to South Africa. FIVE.

Matt Dudek’s picture includes a majority of the team, the staff, and families all standing in front of a beautiful mountain in South Africa.

Dudek’s comment “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery” adds in that extra jab which sealed the win for him and all of Michigan football.

The win also comes from past three off-seasons and could include coach Jim Harbaugh‘s first year.

Harbaugh famously brought the guys down to practice in Florida at the IMG Academy. Shea Patterson, Jordan Anthony, and Cesar Ruiz all attended the school which is a hotbed for talent.

The trip was too successful and raised so attention that the NCAA decided to ban off-season off-campus practice.

What does the genius staff at Michigan do? Take these young student-athletes world-wide.

Italy, France, and now South Africa.

“Amazing, in one word.” Athletic Director Warde Manuel said. “Just an unbelievable experience for all of us. Unbelievable for me because not only did I get to experience it, I got to experience it through student-athletes as well, and their eyes we reopen, they were engaged, just taking it all in.”

Real unbelievable experience for the team and not a few football players winging it.

With that said, the current 2019 score is Dudek 1, Notre Dame 0.
