Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has been known to shout out random celebrities on Twitter for a variety of reasons, and he always seems to know what to say. 

So when he received a shout-out of his own from "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair following a first-year success, Harbaugh responded with an old wrestling reference - something "The Nature Boy" could appreciate.
