If any school other than Michigan put “Made in USA, Not in Ohio” on a football, it would probably go ignored. But when Michigan does it, you better believe, people will talk about it. Michigan redshirt freshman Bo Dever tweeted the picture above of a football that includes the aforementioned phrase stamped on it.

Again, only in this rivalry would something like this be “news.” Such a message reeks of Brady Hoke, a Michigan man who loves fueling rivalries and who insists on referring to Ohio State as “Ohio” on every mention.

Your move, “School up North.”

Update: Adidas makes Rifle footballs, and, according to the Adidas website, the balls are “Imported.”  So, not only are the balls not made in Ohio, they’re not even made in the U.S. of A.
