INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — I’m going to do a rare first-person account here, because I am literally sitting a room over from where this happened.
As we in the media contingent are sitting in the same Indianapolis Marriott as the team, albeit a room over, eagerly awaiting the announcement of where (Vrbo Fiesta Bowl) and who (TCU) Michigan football is playing, ESPN’s Gene Wojciechowski was in the room with the players — and it turns out some of the players were having a bit of fun during his live report.
As Wojciechowski was reporting, Michael Barrett, Kris Jenkins, Eyabi Okie, and a few other guests joined in on the fun in the background, completely usurping everything Wojciechowski said.
We in the media room could not hear a word Wojciechowski said.
Jim Harbaugh called his team happy warriors, and they’re assuredly they’re showing it.
