Mallory Family

BTN showed a great pregame moment between the Mallory family during the Indiana-Michigan game Saturday afternoon. Bill Mallory, the patriarch of the family and the former longtime Indiana coach (1984-1996), turned some heads with his blanket of choice at a wet Michigan Stadium. Yep, that’s a Michigan blanket!

To be fair, he has a son on both coaching staffs (Doug, Indiana’s defensive coordinator; Curt, Michigan’s secondary coach) and the game was at the Big House.

Can’t blame a proud papa for not wanting to pick a side, right?
