Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and talk show host Jim Rome are engaged in a heated back and forth. Harbaugh fired the latest salvo Wednesday with a Tweet that recalled one of Rome’s infamous interviews.

Earlier this week, Harbaugh walked out of an interview session with reporters after they asked follow up questions about three players who were missing from a team photo taken at Michigan’s media day. After Harbaugh said the situation with the players was being handled internally, he became upset with continued questions.

On his CBSRadio talk show, Rome, who likes to refer to his talk show “The Jungle,” called out Harbaugh.

“What that is (is) a jerk move by the coach,” Rome said. “That is not an unfair question or an unfair line of questioning. Like coach, you have multiple players unaccounted for, nobody knows where they are or what happened to them.

“You know why they want a second question, a third question Jim? Because you didn’t answer the first question. If you answered the first question, there would be no need for a second question, a third question a fourth question …”

Harbaugh took to Twitter and his feed posted video of a 1994 Rome interview with former Purdue and then NFL quarterback Jim Everett. Angered that Rome referred to him as “Chris” Everett, the quarterback lunged across the table at Rome.
