Bally Sports trolls former Ohio State quarterback at Detroit Tigers game

HOUSTON – Not much for Sunday’s game between the Detroit Tigers and the Astros, but Bally Sports at least gave Michigan fans some joy by trolling the former Ohio State quarterback.

Houston Texans star C.J. Stroud attended the game at Minute Maid Park, which the Tigers lost 4-1 after Ronel Blanco was barely allowed a hit.

Stroud is coming off an excellent rookie season in which he passed for 4,108 yards and 23 touchdowns and had just five interceptions. He made the Pro Bowl and won Offensive Rookie of the Year.

But those aren’t the kinds of stats we care about here in Michigan – and Bally Sports Detroit knows that. When they showed Stroud in the bottom of the fifth round, they did so with a graphic that read: “2023 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year – Career: 0-2 vs. Michigan at Ohio State.”

Stroud put up video game numbers at Ohio State, but he was also the first Buckeye quarterback to lose to the Wolverines since 2011. The following year, Ohio State lost at home to Michigan for the first time since 2000.

Is it Stroud’s fault that Ohio State lost those games? Absolutely not. He put up huge stats against Michigan’s great defense. And don’t forget that he was sick, it was snowing and the sun was shining in his eyes.

But hey, 0-2 is 0-2, and Michigan fans have suffered at the hands of the Buckeyes long enough to not enjoy this winning streak.
