Jim Harbaugh responds to Gene Smith's comments about spring practice with a tattoo joke

No subtweet here.

During Tuesday's media availability, Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith was asked whether the Buckeyes are considering spring break practices in Florida. This topic has been popular since Coach Harbaugh did this with the Michigan football team.

Smith's reaction to the question seemed like a slight at the Ohio State rivals. "Is it creative? Does it help from a recruiting and marketing point of view? I get that," Smith said, according to "If we were jumpstarting our program I'd probably try and do that, too. But we're not jumpstarting our program. We're in a different place."

Coach Harbaugh didn't come back with a subtweet, he straight up called Gene Smith out, while also bringing up the biggest blunder in recent Buckeye history.

For the record, Smith's been relevant again since then -- anyone remember the 2014 National Championship? Anyone? Or maybe the last Michigan game?

Ohio State better keep beating Michigan, since Harbaugh is going to be insufferable on Twitter if the Wolverines ever spring the upset.

And, of course, Buckeye players were quick to respond.
