Michigan’s Dickinson dissociates from Hitler-Izzo comment

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan center Hunter Dickinson said he was part of a decision to remove a published Barstool Sports podcast in which one of his co-hosts compared Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo to Adolf Hitler. Hunter said he doesn’t associate himself with the comment after the Wolverines beat Penn State 79-69 Wednesday night. Michigan plays the Spartans on the road Saturday. Dickinson is a regular on the podcast but said he couldn’t recall if he was on it when the comment was made. Hitler and his accomplices murdered 6 million Jews in Europe. Izzo is a Basketball Hall of Fame coach.
