Here's what Charlie said according to the Detroit Free Press, "And then we'll listen to Michigan have all their excuses as they come running in and saying how they have a new coaching staff and there's changes. To hell with Michigan!"
"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... 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."
