Jim Harbaugh doesn't settle for second place, let alone fourth.

New Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh is quite popular with the student body so far in his tenure. Not popular enough for his own liking, though.

Jim Harbaugh has created his fair share of buzz since taking the Michigan job back in December. He recently had an assistant send a letter to a recruit’s girlfriend, came out and said that he is not worth $5 million per year and made the move to bring the helmet stickers back.

Now the "Michigan Man" is in the news for something he did not have any part in. Jim Harbaugh came in fourth place in Michigan’s student government election with 115 total write-in votes for the coach.

According to The Michigan Daily here is how Harbaugh got his votes:

Harbaugh received 115 votes for president in total, including 82 votes for “Jim Harbaugh,” another 18 simply for “Harbaugh” and four for the joint ticket of “Jim Harbaugh and Diag Squirrel. Other voters were more creative with their write-in submissions, with the tickets “Jim Harbaugh and Jabrill Peppers,” “Jim Harbaugh and His Khakis” and “Jim Harbaugh and Jesus Shuttlesworth” receiving one vote each.

Harbaugh was a great sport about it too, sending out this tweet:

While Harbaugh certainly can’t serve on the student council and wouldn’t have the time, it’s cool the students think so highly of him right now. Just imagine what will happen if they have a good season this year.
