Brady Hoke on not shaking hands with Urban Meyer: 'It's not a story'

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Michigan Wolverines head coach brushed off him and Urban Meyer not shaking hands.

After the Ohio State Buckeyes defeated the Michigan Wolverines 26-21 on Saturday, head coaches Urban Meyer and Brady Hoke did not meet at midfield and shake hands, as is customary post-game. Hoke told reporters after the game on Saturday that the non-handshake is a non-story.

"No big deal. It's not a story."

The two coaches also did not chat on the field prior to the game, with Hoke explaining that it was because he works with the defensive line prior to the game, making it hard for him to see anyone. Hoke and Meyer have ignited the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State, one that was dominated by the Buckeyes under Jim Tressel and took a year off last season as Hoke and the Wolverines defeated a Buckeyes team led by interim head coach Luke Fickell.

Hoke and Meyer had warred prior to Saturday's game on the recruiting trail, as both schools are in-line to pull in nationally recognized classes. Hoke has received commitments from nine Ohio high school players for 2013.
