Tom Izzo tore into Russell Byrd during Sunday afternoon’s loss to rival Michigan. College basketball analyst and BTN contributor Seth Davis noticed it and tweeted it. Problem is, he was thinking about a former Big Ten Byrd, the Purdue one, and tweeted “D.J Byrd.” Twitter being what it is, the former Boiler responded to Davis – all the way from Germany.
Byrd’s response? “I do have a voice mail.”
See the Twitter exchange below:
Izzo just absolutely tore into D.J. Byrd in the huddle. You think he kinda sorta wants to win this game?—
