Jim Harbaugh posts second “Thought of the day” that reads like a subtweet

We already knew Jim Harbaugh was good at Twitter from his previous foray, as chronicled (no pun intended) by Peter Hartlaub. But instead of tweets about falling off ladders while doing home repairs, or “The Rockford Files,” Harbaugh seems to be tweeting thinly veiled messages to those who he might refer to as “not-so-trusted agents.”

As friend of BASGcast Chris Biderman pointed out, Harbaugh was actually quoting Rick Ross with that line he learned from Frank Gore. Biderman also called Harbaugh’s tweet “the highlight of the NFL offseason so far.” I’ve got Harbaugh’s Gore tweet in second place behind Jim Kozimor’s classic interview of new 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula, someone Harbaugh must’ve forgotten to mention here:

It would’ve been amazing if Harbaugh had joined the Twitter ranks after the 2013 season, as there would’ve been no ambiguity if he posted tweets like these.

Harbaugh’s initial Michigan recruiting class wasn’t quite as star-studded as some Wolverine fans had hoped after he signed on to coach at his alma mater, although one could point to a late start as the primary reason. Perhaps he thinks other college coaches are deceiving potential recruits, or Ohio State fans in his mentions are the ones doing the hating.

However, just like it’s fun to imagine what he might have posted if he was on Twitter in 2014, picturing what the reaction would’ve been if he dropped “@JedYork” at the end of either “thought of the day” is enough to make a football fan as “happy as a pig in slop.”
