As part of their Italy trip, t Michigan is in the Vatican City today and took in the Pope’s Wednesday address to the masses in St. Peter’s Square — the players and A.D. sat in the crowd while the head coach and his wife were seated on the same stage as Pope Francis.
Following the address, and after a wait of nearly a half-hour, Harbaugh was able to meet with and speak to His Holiness. The coach didn’t come empty-handed, either, as Pope Francis was gifted with a Michigan football helmet and a pair of Air Jordans with a maize and blue theme of course!
According to MLIVE Harbaugh said: “This is as good as it gets. “This has been the experience of my lifetime.”
