“I don’t worry about what Kirk Herbstreit says, to tell you the truth,” Pryor said. “Has he beat Michigan?”
That was in reference to the fact that, while Pryor is 3-0 against the Wolverines, the Buckeyes went 0-4-1 against their archrivals in the five seasons Herbstreit was there, 1988-92. But then, after Herbstreit directed OSU to a 13-13 deadlock in ’92, OSU president E. Gordon Gee did say “this tie is one of our greatest wins.”
When apprised of Pryor’s comment, Herbstreit — in Pasadena, Calif., getting ready for this afternoon’s telecast of the Rose Bowl — said by text he’d rather not counter.
“Wish him well,” Herbstreit said.
The Buckeyes are here preparing to take on Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday night.
