Did Jim Harbaugh Subtweet Urban Meyer?

Not go to Philosoraptor on everyone, but can a subtweet be considered a subtweet if everyone knows who the author is shooting at? 

Right now it's unclear if Jim Harbaugh is running his Twitter account, or it's a gang of social media gurus (or some combination of both), but Harbaugh's "Thought of the day" doesn't seem so random given the accusations being thrown around about the recruitment of four-star Detroit running back, Mike Weber.

Now, Michigan fans would say, "Aha! Buckeye fans show their coach's true nature by their belief Harbaugh is talking about Urban Meyer, when he ambiguously mentioned deceit.

And those people might have a point, but one thing is clear: Jim Harbaugh, like Urban Meyer, is an ultra-competitor and ledger keeper. I don't think it's unfair to think a shot like this is totally within Harbaugh's character. (Judging by my Twitter timeline, I'm not alone in that thinking.)

Most interesting in all this, however, is the fact that only a mere 294 days remain between us and the first Meyer-Harbaugh clash in Ann Arbor.
