I put on my No. 6 Michigan football jersey Saturday morning at 9:15, right before I tried out for the Michigan football team in Al Glick Field House. Any full-time student at Michigan could try out, and I was one of about 55 to take up the opportunity.
Sure, it wasn’t the national championship, a Rose Bowl championship or a Big Ten championship, but for one day, it seemed like none of that mattered. Friday wasn’t the day to minimize Michigan’s feats.
