There's no love lost between the SEC and the Big Ten.
Georgia head coach Kirby Smart was asked his thoughts on Jim Harbaugh having Michigan spring practices down in Florida at the IMG Academy, and he had a little something to say about it.
"They're obviously trying to gain a competitive advantage, and obviously that's their right, but I think the NCAA in due time will have to step in and keep it from getting out of hand," Smart said.
Harbaugh wasn't a fan of the comments so he decided to take to Twitter talking about the "Georgia coach". This probably won't end well.
If the Georgia coach is implying any intent on our part to break rules, he is barking up the wrong tree.— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) February 24, 2016
There needs to be a Michigan-Georgia matchup scheduled just to see this play out on the field.

Watch those Twitter fingers.
The NCAA has issued a ruling that coaches are no longer allowed to subtweet unsigned recruits. The bigger Twitter becomes, the more college coaches want to express themselves and their enjoyment of getting a commitment from a recruit. No more until the kid signs on the dotted line.
The NCAA has ruled on the issue subTweeting unsigned recruits.— Brad Barnes (@TAMUCompliance) February 24, 2016
The #NCAA says using PSA's nickname = not permissible in public messages when context suggests the message is referencing an unsigned PSA.— Brad Barnes (@TAMUCompliance) February 24, 2016
Subtweeting is so perfect because people know who you're talking about without you mentioning that person, so the NCAA will have to work overtime to actually catch a coach in the act.Tags Overtime
Leonard Fournette is a beast.
Everyone who has ever seen an LSU football game already knows that. Now we get a look at just how strong the Tigers running back truly is. Fournette uploaded a video to Instagram demonstrating how he squats 405 pounds like it's nothing.
Slight work, indeed.
This guy won't be able to live this down.
A Jeopardy! contestant was given the hints "Buckeye" and "Big Ten", but still couldn't piece together that Olympic legend Jesse Owens attended Ohio State. It could've been an innocent mix-up and perhaps Chris does know the answer, but he won't be able to escape this question the near future.

New uniforms are a huge part of any college football offseason, and Kentucky is one of the first teams to unveil a new look for 2016.
On Friday, the Wildcats released their updated uniforms and helmets for the 2016 season.
These aren’t drastically different than the ones Kentucky used in 2015, but there are some solid tweaks to the uniforms.
Check out Kentucky’s new uniforms:

Michigan is never one to shy away from the spotlight.
Many stars from alum Tom Brady to Yankees legend Derek Jeter showed up for the Wolverines' National Signing Day. It's looking like a mini-ESPYs in Ann Arbor. What's National Signing Day without Ric Flair as well?

Michigan definitely isn't holding anything back this year.
National Signing Day is officially out of control.
Four-star safety Deontay Anderson made his commitment to Ole Miss known by jumping out of a plane. Yes, you read that right, Hugh Freeze's newest guy went skydiving to make his announcement.
Deciding in front of a table of hats is played out.
Things are looking good for Georgia on National Signing Day.
Five-star recruit Mecole Hardman faked everyone out and picked Georgia with the help of some decoy cakes. Notice that none of them are Georgia.
5 of the cakes are up. Can't get Hardman to confirm what he plans to do. Cut one? Eat it with his hands? Intrigue. pic.twitter.com/Mq0zg87tlA— Jake Reuse (@ReuseRecruiting) February 3, 2016
When Hardman came from behind the banner, he was dressed in Dawgs gear.
Pretty fun scene, and he probably just shortened Kirby Smart's lifespan by a couple years with that fakeout.
The NCAA has filed charges against Ole Miss, including three of their sports programs.
The only problem for the Rebels football program is that it is not an easy thing for recruits to hear so close to National Signing Day. The majority of the information is based on the women's basketball team, and the other is somewhat outdated Laremy Tunsil issues.
Ole Miss defensive tackle Herbert Moore took to Twitter to comment on the allegations.
It's funny cause you can see the fear in everybody's heart. False allegations is really pathetic. If you ain't got haters you ain't poppin??— Herbert Moore (@__LandShark99) January 29, 2016
It's funny how they make stuff up before the big recruiting weekend ???— Herbert Moore (@__LandShark99) January 29, 2016
For the haters. You can't stop nothing that's God given. So goodluck with that #DabOnThemFolks???????— Herbert Moore (@__LandShark99) January 29, 2016
Can't wait to see everyone face when the lies blow up in they face. It's all good tho. #OleMiss ????— Herbert Moore (@__LandShark99) January 29, 2016
Moore wasn't the only person to comment regarding the timing of it all. Much of the information is dated, but It's odd it would happen so close to a big recruiting weekend.
The University of Mississippi has been charged with rules violations in three sports, including football.
According to Yahoo Sports, Ole Miss have received a Notice of Allegations for "roughly 30 violations". Football, women's basketball, and track and field were all on the notice. This isn't exactly the news you want to hear so close to college football's signing day, as it could change a lot of minds.
Some violations took place before Hugh Freeze got to Oxford in 2012, but it's possible he's included. Officials in the SEC have voiced their concerns in regards to Ole Miss' recruiting practices. The Rebels will have 90 days to respond to the NCAA's allegations.
Ole Miss' recruiting class currently sits at No. 4 according to Rivals.
