Michigan beat Notre Dame 41-30 on Saturday night at the Big House in Ann Arbor, and the school celebrated the win over their “regional” rival with a little needling.
The fantastic music choice was a nod to head coach Brady Hoke saying in May that Notre Dame was chickening out by pulling out of the rivalry between the schools. The Fighting Irish informed the Wolverines that they were not interested in playing them beyond this season. Then last weekend Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly downplayed the significance of the rivalry, saying the teams were only regional rivals.
So let’s recap:
- Brady Hoke calls Notre Dame chickens for pulling out of the rivalry
- Brian Kelly says Michigan is not a traditional rival for Notre Dame
- Michigan beats Notre Dame 41-30
- Wolverines play Chicken Dance over Big House speakers after win
Masterfully done, Michigan.
