The Michigan football sign-stealing investigation is the most talked about thing in sports and an SEC head coach weighed in with a shot at the Wolverines.
One thing that’s really interesting in the alleged sign-stealing scandal engulfing Michigan football right now is how many coaches and former players have said it’s not a big deal.
Aidan Hutchinson talked about how other Big Ten programs stole the signs of Michigan football. It’s an open secret that Ohio State did it to Michigan in 2018 and 2019.
Yet, Deion Sanders, Nick Saban, and some former players have basically said this whole thing is being overblown. The only people not saying that are basically Ohio State fans and James Franklin. There are some other rival fanbases too, but the Buckeyes have been crying the loudest.
What’s funny is that another current college football head coach has weighed and offered up a joke at Michigan football’s expense.
Eli Drinkwitz, the Missouri head coach, was doing an interview with Mike Golic Sr. and Mike Golic Jr when he decided to take a shot at Michigan.
Drinkwitz was asked about electronic communications and made a joke that, “Everybody but Michigan would want to” meaning make changes to radios in headsets.
It’s kind of wild that the NCAA doesn’t have this technology already because there are even high school teams around the country doing this. There’s talk of radios being used during the bowl season as an experiment and hopefully, that will lead to a permanent change.
The joke by Drinkwitz was all in good fun it seems and honestly, college football would be better off without all the weird signs on the sidelines as teams are trying to protect themselves from having their signs stolen by other programs.
