Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh has called out Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio via Twitter today. 

"Saw Coach D comments on continuing to "focus" on how "he" can beat Michigan. Congrats on turning around a 3-9 team, plagued with off field issues," Harbaugh wrote. "Good for BIG to have him back."
