Wolverine Wednesday: Harbaugh Meets The Pope Today


Jim Harbaugh met the Pope today and gave him a Michigan helmet and a pair of Jordan's.    Another proof point (if you needed one) that our head coach is a rock star.  

They took a tour of Rome including the Coliseum and played paint ball yesterday.   What a great trip for the entire team.

  • The rumor mill on twitter is saying that Michigan is trying to get out of the agreement to do a home and home with the University of Washington in 2020 and 2021.

  • Grant Newsome tells Angelique that he was minutes away from losing his leg.   I have seen serious football injuries before but I don't recall ever seeing one so serious that a player might lose his leg.   Thank goodness that didn't happen.

  • Current Michigan fan and former NY Yankee Derrick Jeter  is part of the ownership group that is trying to purchase the Miami Marlins.   How many of us would have signed up for Jeter's life? 

  • It's being reported that ESPN will layoff 100 employees today.  50% of the cut is expected to be on air talent.

I would be first in line for Derrick Jeter's ex-girlfriends! Much better than blow-up dolls!

I enjoy your column (blog), but I think you are overly generous when you refer to ESPN TV people as "Talent".{lol}

ESPN doesn't seem to get it. We watch for sports, not their political rhetoric. Making Jenner a "hero" is a good example of why people have had enough of them.

I doubt if any of the Notre Dame football programs had gone to see the Pope let alone gone to Rome. Good one for Harbaugh and Michigan.

Also, I am glad Newsome is doing well. I may be of the minority here, but I don't care for those low cut blocks because they cause severe damage. This kid almost lost his leg as a result. It could likely effect Jake Butt's career. I believe they should be outlawed. IMHO!!!
