Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson isn’t happy with his former coach Greg Mattison going to Ohio State.

Mattison and another former Wolverines assistant took jobs with the Buckeyes, and it’s not going over well. Initially, their former co-worker tore into them and now Hutchinson is, too. (RELATED: Michigan Assistant Chris Patridge Rips Coaches Who Left For Ohio State)

Hutchinson told the media the following, according to the Toledo Blade Sunday:

Coach Matty, he taught me so much when I got here. I’m not taking any of that away from him, but you get a big feeling of betrayal, you know? He told me he’s either retiring or he’s renewing the contract, so I’m like, ‘Oh, OK.’ I found out he’s leaving, I’m like, ‘Oh, OK, whatever.’ Then he said Ohio State and that kinda makes your stomach, you know, turn a little bit. He taught me a lot, I’m not taking that away from him, but it gives you a different mindset on things. I wouldn’t mind if he went to any other school. But this [expletive] kind of hurts.

Hey, Hutchinson! Go cry yourself a river of tears. Welcome to the world of college football. Ohio State has dominated Michigan in the past few years. It’s incredibly embarrassing.

Jim Harbaugh hasn’t ever won a game against the Buckeyes as the head coach of the Wolverines. Maybe they should spend a little more time practicing and a little less time complaining.

The man took a job at a bigger and better program. Sue him if you don’t like it. This is America, and the cream rises to the crop. (RELATED: Justin Fields Talks About The Ohio State Vs. Michigan Rivalry)

As much as it pains me to say, the top of the Big Ten right now is located in Columbus, Ohio. If people in Ann Arbor can’t understand that fact, then they’re delusional.

I’m a Badger fan. I hate both these teams but facts are facts. Coaches take different jobs all the time. If you don’t want them going to your bitter rival, then get better so that they stay.

It’s not rocket science. It’s football. Apparently, the Wolverines still have a lot to learn about the sport.
