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.

  1. Spirited and sportsman like rivalries are always welcome. I believe that to be true of Ohio State and Michigan. Some years ago I read a story where a Nebraska rooter visited The Shoe for a game and commented on how well he was received in Columbus as compare with the game in Madison.
