Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh’s latest move can be best described as spitting in the face of the SEC.
Harbaugh is in a growing beef with Alabama coach Nick Saban over satellite camps for recruitment. The initial dispute began on social media, but now the former football star is recruiting in Saban’s home state while wearing former Crimson Tide player Julio Jones’s jersey.

It’s hard to tell if Harbaugh is trolling Saban because he knows there’s nothing that the NCAA can do to stop him, or if he’s trying to escalate the feud. (RELATED: Stanford Football Coach Destroys SEC Country’s Academics)
This is quickly becoming the story of the college football offseason, and many pundits think that upsetting Harbaugh is not a smart move.
