Former Iran President Tweets Out Support For....Michigan Football?


It’s a rare year when Michigan football isn’t a part of multiple college football storylines. The Wolverines may not have won a national championship since the 20th century, but when Michigan is hot, the country takes notice. Everybody has their opinion on the Michigan Wolverines, even ex-Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

Why is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tweeting about Michigan football? Who knows. It’s a wild, wild world out there that I don’t understand. What is the political implication of this? That’s not my job either. The timing of his tweet was bizarre but hilarious. On September 3rd, Ahmadinejad tweeted this out:

Maybe the ex-Iranian president should look himself and the country he ran in the mirror before complaining about the Kaepernick situation. Anyways, a random person responded to that tweet and asked about Michigan football:

This was all on September 3rd. Somehow, someway, of the almost 10,000 replies, a month-plus later, Ahmadinejad picked out this tweet to reply to. What a weird, weird interaction. Anyways, it’s good to know that Ahmadinejad believes Michigan will return to it’s glory days sooner than later.

Anyways, Michigan takes on Michigan State on Saturday at Noon. Harbaugh is 1-5 against Michigan State and Penn Ohio State (EDIT: 1:55 PM) since he arrived at Michigan.
