The NCAA wants to crack down on coaches subtweeting recruits, but there's nothing stopping Michigan's Jim Harbaugh from putting other coaches on blast via social media. Earlier this week, while speaking to the Macon Touchdown Club, new Georgia coach Kirby Smart said that Michigan's impending spring football trip to IMG Academy in Florida will open "Pandora's Box." From Campus Insiders:

"I think the NCAA in due time will have to step in,” Smart said at the Macon Touchdown Club. “I don’t know how it’s going to go down. It’s going to be interesting to see, though.”

...

“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.”

When you call out Jim Harbaugh, he's going to go after you on Twitter. Harbaugh wouldn't even refer to Smart by name.
