It would appear Jim Harbaugh saw what Kirby Smart had to say about Michigan holding spring practice in Florida.
No surprise to anyone, Harbaugh didn't take too kind to Smart's take.
At the Macon Touchdown Club Spring Jamboree on Monday, Smart said he hoped the NCAA would ultimately intervene with a new rule to make what Michigan is doing against policy due to a competitive advantage. Harbaugh has now responded to what Smart said on his personal Twitter account.
"If the Georgia coach is implying any intent on our part to break rules, he is barking up the wrong tree," Harbaugh wrote.

If the Georgia coach is implying any intent on our part to break rules, he is barking up the wrong tree.— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) February 24, 2016
While Smart said he wants to NCAA to ultimately intervene with a new rule, he didn't say Michigan was in violation of anything.
"I can’t comment other than to say they’re obviously trying to gain a competitive advantage," Smart said. "That’s their right but I think the NCAA, in due time, will have to step in and keep it from getting out of hand. There are a lot of factors people don’t know about in that deal. You’ve got to think about recruiting rules, how are they going to handle those? Is it an advantage, disadvantage? Are they going to let other coaches come to it? Are they gonna hold open practices? Do we all come in there and watch them and scout them? If they’re all open practices why don’t we go and watch them? It’s a Pandora’s Box of what it’s going to get into, obviously."
