Weis: Michigan Jab Meant With Respect

The question didn't take long to come up Tuesday, especially after Michigan's players and coaches made it a point of talking about Charlie Weis' "The Hell With Michigan" quote made in April at a function during the Blue-Gold Game weekend.

On Monday, the Wolverines made sure to let the media know they had heard what Weis has said. On Tuesday, Weis responded.

"Anyone who is a Michigan fan should know and understand that that comment pays respect to Bo (Schembechler) and his mentality versus when playing an opponent," Weis said. "As a matter of fact, Schembechler's (son) and I had a big chuckle over this in summer during training camp. And we shared a moment that this question would probably be asked on this day. So take it for what it's worth. But I think that's a very respectful comment towards Coach Bo's "To hell with Notre Dame."

Respectful or not, it did provide literal bulletin board material for Michigan this week.
