Jim Harbaugh is weird. We have known Jim Harbaugh is weird for some time. However, even in the history of Jim Harbaugh doing weird things, I don't think any weird thing he has done can top this: Harbaugh went on stage at a Lil Dicky concert in Ann Arbor to sing the national anthem. A writer for our Michigan site, Maize n Brew, was there:

It should be noted that Lil Dicky apparently wore a Jake Butt jersey for his performance. He'd taken a picture with Harbaugh earlier in the day.
This is weird for a few reasons:
1. Rap concerts don't usually have national anthems. Most concerts don't normally have national anthems! We only do that at sporting events, really.
2. College football coaches don't normally go on stage at rap concerts!
3. We can imagine a college football coach going on stage at a rap concert to Impress The Recruits, but, like, a budding friendship with Lil Dicky is something that will impress the recruits. He's really more of a comedian than he is a rapper.
