Despite being nearly two decades removed, Tom Brady let everyone know he remains a Michigan man Saturday.
The Patriots quarterback took to Instagram before his alma mater’s Final Four tilt with Loyola to reiterate who he’d be rooting for. Brady superimposed his head — excited face and all — on the body of a Michigan basketball player.
He captioned the post: “Ready to go tonight! Let’s go Blue!!!’’
The third-seeded Wolverines topped 11th-seeded Loyola, 69-57. They will play the winner of the Villanova-Kansas game for the national title Monday. Earlier this week, Brady chatted via FaceTime with Michigan’s head coach John Beilein.

The 40-year-old played Michigan football for four seasons, from 1996 to 1999, throwing for 30 touchdowns and more than 4,700 yards before getting selected in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.
During his four-game Deflategate suspension in 2016, Brady returned to Ann Arbor and served as an honorary team captain for the team’s game against Colorado.
