Tom Brady bets Super Bowl ring with CJ Stroud
The former quarterback, who graduated from Michigan, laid his award on the line ahead of the NCAA clash with Ohio State.
Super Bowl legend Tom Brady demonstrated his yearning to rewind his NFL-strutting clock after bantering with the current quarterback of the Houston Texans, CJ Stroud, in anticipation of the clash between Michigan and Ohio State. The NFL rookie sensation was a guest on Brady’s podcast ‘Let’s Go,’ co-hosted with former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and commentator Jim Gray.
Brady puts Super Bowl ring on the line
“I propose a wager. If Ohio State beats Michigan, which I honestly don’t think will happen, I’ll hand over one of my Super Bowl championship rings to you. But if Michigan wins, you give me your youth, agility, and your future years in the NFL,” joked Brady.
The 22-year-old youngster accepted the offer, though later confessed, “I’m not taking your ring, Tom; that’s yours. I’m going to strive to win my own championship ring.”
Stroud currently holds the second position in passing yards for the season with a total of 2,626 yards, just behind the Commanders’ quarterback, Sam Howell.
The reason for Brady-Stroud bet
The seven-time Super Bowl champion graduated from the University of Michigan, leading them to a 35-34 victory in the Orange Bowl in 1999 with four touchdown passes against Alabama. Stroud, on the other hand, led Ohio State to the NCAA semifinals, where they fell to the number one seed, the Georgia Dawgs. Prior to that, the Buckeyes lost their undefeated status in the last week of the season, falling to, you guessed it, Michigan.
Michigan and Ohio State, both teams with a perfect record in the NCAA, will face off on 25 November in Ann Arbor at the Michigan Stadium, in a matchup that could have significant implications at the end of the season.
