Michigan Football Team Arrives In Italy For Special Week Of Practice

The Michigan football team has arrived in Italy for a very special week the players will likely never forget.
The Wolverines arrived in Rome in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday with 99 players, head coach Jim Harbaugh and his coaching staff all along for the ride.
Michigan will visit some historic landmarks in Rome, while holding three practices and participating in various other activities.
The Wolverines wasted no time getting to the sightseeing.


According to Jim Harbaugh, the trip is meant to be “a cultural, educational and international football experience for his program.”
More from ESPN.com:

The team will practice on April 27, 28 and 29 before heading home on April 30.
When they’re not in pads, the coaches and players will meet with refugees, visit Rome’s most historic landmarks and even have an audience with Pope Francis at Vatican City later in the week. The team also has plans to take in an opera, learn some Italian cooking tips, visit a gladiator training center and perhaps reenact a bit of Italian history with the help of paintball guns.

Yeah, you know that other football programs have to be jealous.
