Larry Foote, a product of the University of Michigan, doesn't like Ohio State.
It's bad enough for him he had to play under Buckeyes alum Dick LeBeau nearly his entire career in Pittsburgh, they brought in multiple defensive players from Ohio State as well.
"The only Buckeye I ever liked was Dick LeBeau," Foote told Go Blue Wolverine in 2013.
"I didn’t like that Buckeye getting my number," Foote told ESPN's Scott Brown. "I was fired up."
It's all in good fun for Foote...maybe. He actually probably is upset to some degree, but 1. That's Larry Foote being Larry Foote, and 2. You get all loyalty, not just a part of it. For the same reasons many consider Ohio State vs. Michigan to be one of the premiere rivalries in all of sports, it's embedded deeply into those who participate in it.
Much like the news cycle in early July, things will be a lot quieter without Foote around the team.
