Another day, another Twitter zing from Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.

This time, Georgia coach Kirby Smart was the target — without naming names, of course.

Harbaugh on Wednesday wrote on Twitter: “If the Georgia coach is implying any intent on our part to break rules, he is barking up the wrong tree.”

That is in response to Smart’s comments earlier this week from the Macon Touchdown Club reported by DawgNation.com.

Harbaugh invites Florida H.S. coaches to spring practices

Smart's first question was about Harbaugh taking the Michigan football team to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., next week for a week of spring practice during the school’s official spring break. Harbaugh has said the team will have other non-football activities and this will allow the players to have two weeks off for finals. Michigan will hold four practices in Florida beginning Monday.

“They’re obviously trying to gain a competitive advantage and that’s their right,” Smart said according to DawgNation.com. “But I think the NCAA in due time will have to step in. I don’t know how it’s going to go down. It’s going to be interesting to see, though.”

Harbaugh has been target for this spring break decision by SEC commissioner Greg Sankey and ACC commissioner John Swofford, as well.
