Listen: Discussing Dan Dierdorf's Surprising Comments Surrounding Michigan's Bowl Game

Brandon Brown

Yesterday, Michael Spath posted a column breaking down some shocking comments recently made by Dan Dierdorf while he was a guest on Inside the Huddle. Spath is a fan of Dierdorf as evidenced by this introduction from that column.

He is one of the preeminent Michigan Men of all time, one of the toughest, fiercest, most dominant offensive linemen in the history of football (he is in both the NFL and college football Hall of Fame). He is the model for which all of "Bo's Boys" gets measured against. He loves his alma mater, represents the ideal that "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions" and is extremely competitive. 

That description is exactly why Dierdorf's comments surprised Spath, and not in a good way. While on paternity leave, Spath called into the show today to discuss the comments and dig deeper into what would make such a true blue Wolverine say them without hesitation.

What did you think of Dierdorf's words? What does it mean? Comment below!!!

I agree with Dan Dierdorf. Michigan has been "UNCOMPETIVE" in 3 of the last 5 tough games. Blown out by OSU, Blown Out by Wisconsin, Competitive Loss against PSU, Great Win against ND, Terrible Loss against OSU. Can DON BROWN have his defense stand up enough to make this a competitive game?? My bet is NO

Spath, seriously???? LMAO!!!! You're always good for a laugh if nothing else. Gonna say you won't look at a competitive game vs 'Bama won't be a good thing? Sets you up nicely for whatever you choose to spew come Thursday if nothing else.
