Tom Izzo called Rich Eisen to brag about Michigan State’s win over Michigan

Michigan grad/Wolverines fan Rich Eisen got a call from a number he didn’t recognize on Wednesday night. As soon as the popular sports personality answered the phone he knew who it was and why they were calling.

Tom Izzo called Eisen out of the blue to brag about Michigan State’s recent victory over Michigan on the gridiron. Here’s how Eisen described the call:

“What happened Saturday? I gotta tell ya, this guy (Mark Dantonio) knows how to coach, 8-2 against Michigan. How do you go 8-2 against Michigan?” Izzo said, according to Eisen.

Eisen, a Yankees fan who was in the middle of watching Game 5 of the ALDS, said he was surprised and honored about the call.

“He’s so sweet. I’m honored to get my cojones busted by Tom Izzo,” Eisen said.
