The revelation comes after Michigan's coach Jim Harbaugh was featured in a rap video entitled "Who's Got It Better Than Us?" The hook of the song is Harbaugh literally yelling that question into the camera, up close and personal. 

It's honestly hard to know whether or not Harbaugh wants to be taken seriously as this "hip" coach, but the catchy rap is going viral. He might even be starting the next trend among NCAAF teams. Is this the future of college recruiting - choosing schools in terms of who has the best rap hype-video?

McElwain may just be poking fun at his fellow coach, but at the end of the day, he might be on to something.
