Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh seems a little cranky this week.
Okay, granted, Jim Harbaugh seems a little cranky ALWAYS. But this week, the Wolverines coach appears to be in full on grouch-mode.
On Monday, Harbaugh stormed out of a press conference following a relatively innocuous query about two player suspensions. Here’s the video, via Wolverines 24/7.
That’s why I don’t give you any information. Because you’re never satisfied. You always want a second question, a third question, a fourth question. I just said we’d handle it internally. Thank you.
This prompted CBS Sports Radio host Jim Rome to sound off on Harbaugh, calling it a “jerk move” to walk out of the presser.
Harbaugh, as you might expect, didn’t take kindly to the criticism, and fired back on Twitter — making reference to the famous incident in which Rome was attacked by former NFL quarterback Jim Everett.

Rome, of course, fired back — referencing the blowout loss Harbaugh and the Wolverines suffered last year against hated rival Ohio State.
Roasted! Damn, you got me good. Like 42-13 good. https://t.co/qAkYtqYKiB

Somehow, we suspect Harbaugh won’t let Rome have the parting shot.
