After beating Penn State, 24-15, on Saturday afternoon, the Michigan Wolverines hit the road back to Ann Arbor. They returned in time to see the hockey team play a crucial game against Minnesota at Yost Ice Arena.
The team was spotted by camera crews during the match and was shown on the video board. Featured in the video were head coach Jim Harbaugh — who was suspended for the remainder of the regular season by the Big Ten on Friday — interim head coach Sherrone Moore, running back Blake Corum and more.
Toward the end of the video, the crowd starts chanting “Free Jim Harbaugh,” and it looked like it was getting pretty loud at Yost. Even the Michigan hockey Twitter account noticed how loud the crowd was.
Whether or not Harbaugh will receive a temporary restraining order through the courts to continue coaching on Saturdays remains to be seen, but he certainly has the love and support of everyone in Ann Arbor as he and the team face these challenges.
