BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady is a pretty stylish fellow, but his attire on Thursday is not something he wants many people to see.
Why? The Michigan man was in an Ohio State t-shirt as he made his way through the Patriots locker room.
College football rivalries usually carry over into NFL locker rooms, and often lead to some friendly ribbing. That was the case Thursday, the result of Brady’s Michigan Wolverines losing to the Buckeyes 42-13 last weekend.
Because of that loss, special teamer Nate Ebner (the only Ohio State alum on the New England roster) made Brady pay up. Even if you’re a star QB and four-time Super Bowl champion, you still have to pay up when you lose a wager with a teammate.
Brady didn’t receive much sympathy from his teammates either.
“I don’t feel for him at all,” said wide receiver Brandon LaFell. “If we played Michigan and we would’ve lost, he would’ve had me with a Michigan shirt on. Don’t feel for him at all. He should have never made that bet.”
Since reporters can’t take a picture of a player unless they’re at their locker, LaFell has promised to tweet out a picture of Brady in the Ohio State garb this afternoon. We’re all patiently awaiting that tweet.
This isn’t the first time Brady has had to don Ohio State gear. Back in 2012, he had to wear former teammate Mike Vrabel’s Ohio State jersey during practice.
Brady’s kind of lucky he’s only had to pay up twice, seeing how his Wolverines are 3-13 against Ohio State during his NFL career.
