Jim Harbaugh gives shout out to Nicki Minaj for her love of Michigan

Sunday August 2nd, 2015

It's safe to say there's no bad blood between Nicki Minaj and Jim Harbaugh. 

The Michigan coach, whose Twitter continues to be a national treasure, took time out on his Sunday afternoon to shout out rapper and singer Nicki Minaj for probably a few reasons.

For one thing, Harbaugh probably likes to remind his young team and recruits how hip he is. His love for rap is no secret, so interacting with Minaj on Twitter makes sense. And then, of course, there's the fact that Minaj helpfully said something highly praiseworthy about the state his team calls home.
