Jim Harbaugh continues to show us his ears are working.
He hears the criticisms of his ways.
Georgia head coach Kirby Smart is the latest to jump into the ring with an opinion on Harbaugh's Florida spring practice schedule.
“They’re obviously trying to gain a competitive advantage and that’s their right. But I think the NCAA in due time will have to step in,” Smart said in a recent appearance .
Smart said Harbaugh has the right to do what he wants, but he believes a change will come.
“There’s a lot of factors that people don’t think about in that deal,” Smart said. “You’ve gotta think about recruiting rules, how are they going to handle those, is it an advantage, disadvantage? Are they gonna 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.”
Now, Harbaugh has responded.
If the Georgia coach is implying any intent on our part to break rules, he is barking up the wrong tree.

There are subtweets. And then there is directly calling out 'the Georgia coach.'
Harbaugh made his position clear.
