Video: Nike Founder Phil Knight Addresses Ohio State in Locker Room After Double Overtime Win Over Michigan

Nike-supplied Ohio State topped Nike-supplied Michigan on Saturday afternoon in an instaclassic that made roughly one billion dollars for Nike.

Afterwards, Nike founder Phil Knight, dressed like a sportswear tycoon, stopped by the Buckeye locker room to congratulate the victors on their win.

After pointing out Nike supplies 20 of the top-25 ranked teams in the country, Knight told Urban Meyer's team he was most proud of the one standing before him.

He then left the locker room, presumably to head to the bank to deposit some checks in the 24-hour deposit drawer.
