NFL Network analyst Rich Eisen is a proud University of Michigan alum.
Unfortunately, that proud Michigan alum was forced to do something no Wolverines fan ever wants to have to do; he wore an Ohio State Buckeyes jersey to pay off a bet.
As the story from Eleven Warriors goes, Rich Eisen made a bet with IndyCar driver Graham Rahal, who happens to be an Ohio State fan, over the outcome of the Michigan-Ohio State game during the 2015 college football season.
Of course, the Buckeyes won, so Eisen was forced to wear an Ohio State jersey on air.

Most people probably wouldn’t have known if Eisen never paid up on the bet since it wasn’t well publicized in the first place, but props to Rich Eisen for sticking to his word. And an extra special thank you to Eisen for putting the great rivalry back in the headlines while we wait for football to get back in our lives.
