Louisville football Twitter account endorses Jabrill Peppers for Heisman

Tuesday December 6th, 2016

The person running Louisville’s football recruiting Twitter account has some explaining to do.

Said school employee doesn’t seem to be a fan of the Cardinals, because he’s pulling for Michigan linebacker Jabrill Peppers to win the Heisman Trophy over Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson.

How do we know? He participated in one of those meaningless online polls, and tweeted out his answer from the verified football recruiting account. Way to tip your hand.

Louisville fans absolutely lost it before the tweet was quickly deleted.

As funny as this is from the outside, it’s going to be a rough night for the person who sent this tweet. Thoughts and prayers.
