Coach Harbaugh sent out a classy tweet congratulating the Men's basketball team and Coach Beilein. He did this knowing that many bitter and mean-spirited people would respond with cutting remarks on Twitter (which they did in grand fashion). He sent the tweet any way, at substantial personal cost, because he is proud of the team and proud of Coach Beilein. Beilein and Harbaugh have stated in interviews that they communicate in texts. Harbaugh has certainly reached out to Beilein multiple times during this incredible season. However, he made this public statement to show his support for all to see. I have always had great respect for Coach Harbaugh, but this is a whole new level of humility and leadership that increased my affinity for him. We have some incredible coaches at Michigan. In my mind, I hear James Earl Jones saying, "The greatest university in the world.' I am proud of Coach Harbaugh, and of course - proud of Coach Beilein. Go blue!
Congratulations on the big win & trip to the Final Four! Fun to watch our team, expertly coached, extremely talented & great Team chemistry! Familar territory for Michigan teams coached by @johnbeilein. Proud of the way the fans & the team represented our great university.
