Did Michigan QB Shea Patterson mean to tweet this from his burner account?
Patterson referred to himself in 3rd person and threw shots at both Ohio State QB Justin Fields and Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh in a tweet response to a fan in a now-deleted tweet. pic.twitter.com/msdIba0Wix

If Shea Patterson really:
A. Has a burner Twitter account
B. Uses it to talk himself up on Twitter
C. Intended to use it to post this (bad) Tweet but instead used his actual account...
It is the most sad/hilarious/Michigan thing I've seen in some time. Not only that, but he throws Harbaugh under the bus for play calling, which I find both delicious and correct.
I always thought the kid was a diva, but if this is real: yikes.
Apparently the Tweet was deleted very quickly, which - to me, as a professional internet man - suggests that he wasn't hacked. If you're hacked on Twitter, it can take hours to get your account back.
