Tom Brady with a stellar Michigan basketball photoshop here.

With the Michigan Wolverines in the Final Four against the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers Saturday, plenty of fans of both schools have been showing their support. In addition to the prominent personalities on each Teamcast (Matt Park, Jay Feely and Dr. Sanjay Gupta are calling the Michigan teamcast on TNT, and Jeff Hagedorn, Jerry Harkness and Shams Charania are calling the Loyola teamcast on truTV), lots of others have chimed in. One of the most notable expressions of support came from New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady. Brady played football at Michigan from 1995-1999, but on Saturday, he shared a photoshopped picture of him on this Michigan basketball team:

Ready to go tonight! Let’s go Blue!!! @umichbball

Maybe the most perfect thing there is the expression on Brady’s face. Good photo choice by Tom, or by whoever’s running his Instagram account. (Which is quite often fun and weird. Here’s another example of that:)

The Wolverines don’t actually have Brady suiting up Saturday, and they were down 29-22 at the half. Maybe they should call him in for an inspirational halftime speech. That might be particularly good if Brady has been using his beer-chugging skills
