From Jim Harbaugh (Michigan Football’s head coach):
The thoughts and best wishes of the 2018 University of Michigan football team are with you as you go through this difficult time. We both face big challenges over the next few weeks and together we will be successful.
Continue to “ attack each day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.” Better today than yesterday, better tomorrow than today, one day at a time.
We are rooting for you,
Reply from Michael:
Thank you so much for your email. It was quite a surprise. What was even more surprising was that it was orchestrated by my cousin who went to Notre Dame.
I wanted to let you know what a great job you are doing, not just with the resurgence of the Michigan football program, but with continuing the legacy of Bo of building great men. I’ve attached my favorite clip of you from this summer’s Amazon Prime Special.
I’m proud to say that the tradition of rabid UofM fans has been passed down to my son Aidan, who plays football at San Clemente High School and turns 17 today.
So as I sit here in my hospital bed in my faded Michigan shirt (that I believe that I’ve had since graduating in 1987), my prayers are that I can beat this and introduce you to Aidan at next summer’s Big Man camp in Ann Arbor.
Thanks again and Go Blue.
