Ohio State's men's basketball team lost to Michigan in Columbus for the first time since 2003 on Tuesday night. This assumedly made Michigan coach John Beilein a very happy man.

Yet, Ohio State's pregame video, which included things like Evan Turner's 37-foot shot against Michigan in the 2010 Big Ten tournament quarterfinals, also included clips of Ohio University's upset win over Michigan in the 2012 NCAA tournament and Chris Webber's infamous time-out call in the 1993 national title game.

Sure, it might have been childish, but it was a complete troll move.

Consider John Beilein trolled. From

"I hope Michigan never does that," Beilein said. "I don’t want to ever do things like that."

The video wrapped up with an unflattering picture of a Michigan fan, followed by the words, "Pure Michigan," a nod to the state's tourism slogan. 

"There’s a lot of great things in this rivalry, I don’t think that’s one of them," Beilein said. "We’re not going to do that a long as I’m here."

The time a Michigan coach got trolled by a pregame video: another great chapter in the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry.
