When someone says something about Michigan football, Jim Harbaugh can't help but respond. We saw it yesterday, when a Rutgers secret society played a prank on Michigan at its camp in New Jersey, and a few weeks ago, Harbaugh fired off a pretty heated tweet in the direction of Alabama's Nick Saban after the Crimson Tide head coach criticized satellite camps. He later doubled down, calling Saban "hypocritical."

Saban, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with the largely-manufactured controversy. He was asked about Harbaugh's comments once again today, and refused to get in the mud with the Michigan Man.

That's not quite as fun, but we wouldn't expect Saban to handle it any other way.
