After a heated game on Saturday in which No. 3 Michigan lost to No. 2 Ohio State, 30-27, in double overtime, Columbus was riding high, while those in Ann Arbor, Michigan were hanging their heads in defeat.
Then on Monday, OSU’s campus was rocked by an attack on students and faculty. Although, in the end, the only casualty was the attacker himself, the community was left shaken by the day’s events.
In the wake of that violence, members of the Michigan football team set aside the long-held rivalry to reach out in solidarity. The University of Michigan Athletic Department and Wolverines players took to Twitter on Monday during and after the attack to express their thoughts and consolations in the wake of the violence.
Here are a few of their tweets.
Sorry, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I pray no one is harmed! https://t.co/TGlcOStVre
