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.”
