Tate Martell’s Grandfather Hates Michigan Football

Tate Martell’s family is going to fit in well with the Ohio State football fans.

Despite joining the Buckeyes as a highly-touted recruit out of Las Vegas, Martell has ties to Ohio State thanks to his grandfather, a Buckeyes alum.

As it turns out, Martell’s grandfather has also carried a hatred for Michigan throughout his life and it’s reflected on his iPhone lock screen. The five-star quarterback took to social media to proudly display the image.

It reads: “It’s [time] & Michigan still sucks.”

Simple and sweet.

While Martell will take a backseat to J.T. Barrett this season, it’s going to be great when the day comes that he takes the field and the cameras pan to his proud grandfather.
