Jim Harbaugh's recruiting strategy has come under fire a bit this week. Michigan pulled a scholarship offer from four-star offensive lineman Erik Swenson, who had been committed to the Wolverines since 2013. The scholarship was likely pulled to make room for other recruits, but it leaves Swenson without a school just weeks before National Signing Day. 

Michigan's had a couple other de-commitments this week, too, but they don't appear to be forced by the Wolverines. 

This has led to Harbaugh's recruiting tendencies being a topic of national discussion. While what he's doing isn't uncommon, it's never well-received. Just look a couple of these headlines. 

Don't think Harbaugh isn't listening to what's being said about him, either. Late Thursday night, Harbaugh took to Twitter, appearing to subtweet all of his critics.

This is a quote from Mark Wahlberg's "Shooter," but it also appears to be a way for Harbaugh to minimize what's being said about him without directly saying anything. 

Or maybe it's just Jim Harbaugh being his weird self, tweeting out a quote from a movie he likes.
