Jim Harbaugh’s Twitter beef with Ohio State is on ice… for now.
The Michigan head coach went after Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith after he said: "If we were jumpstarting our program I’d probably try and do that, too" in reference to Harbaugh’s spring break practices in Florida, by tweeting this zinger:
Good to see Director Smith being relevant again after the tattoo fiasco. Welcome back!
It set off a social media firestorm amid spring practices. Ohio State players and fans responded accordingly, but now, Harbaugh wants to call the feud off.
Will it simmer things down? Of course not. These two teams can’t help but get after each other, and Harbaugh isn’t likely to be less outspoken — especially on Twitter — moving forward. This is merely a sabbatical before another wonderful, entertaining flare-up.
