Those fires grew a bit brighter this week thanks to Ohio State offensive line coach/co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner. Warinner was speaking at Ohio State's spring football kickoff luncheon, and when speaking publicly it's always best to get the crowd on your side. And the best way to do that with Ohio State fans is to make fun of Michigan.
Warinner did just that, and he did it well.
Ed Warinner: "If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."— Marcus Hartman (@marcushartman) April 2, 2014
Warinner on lost playbooks in Michigan: "I heard Brady was upset because he hadn't finished coloring them."— Marcus Hartman (@marcushartman) April 2, 2014
OL coach Ed Warinner cracking some Michigan jokes at fundraiser lunch for crowd of OSU fans and boosters "Please don't put that on Twitter"— Doug Lesmerises (@DougLesmerises) April 2, 2014
Rule of thumb: If you tell a room full of people not to put something on Twitter, they are totally going to put it on Twitter. Though something tells me Warinner doesn't really mind.
