Jim Harbaugh's questionable recruiting tactics are continuing, and his in-state rival has noticed.
There was plenty of noise made last week when Downers Grove South offensive lineman Erik Swenson had his scholarship offer from Michigan pulled.

Monday, news of another pulled scholarship offer surfaced when Florida defensive end Rashad Weaver tweeted the following.

Another move like this meant plenty more Twitter criticism from observers of all kinds.
One of those observers? Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio.

The subtweet was only out there for a little bit, but on the Internet, nothing ever goes away.
It's actually pretty fitting that a Big Ten head coach subtweet Harbaugh, who's been doing it for sometime now. Heck, he just did it last week after receiving tons of criticism in the wake of the Swenson situation.

Michigan and Michigan State both have strong recruiting classes this year, though it is expected to be the Wolverines who will be projected to have the upper hand this season in the Big Ten East.
This is just the latest chapter in an always red-hot rivalry.
