Don't believe everything you see on social media. Just ask star Colorado wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr.

Over the weekend, a quote reportedly from Shenault was circulating on Twitter. In it, the potential first-round draft pick took a shot at the Cornhusker defense.

"The most fun I've had in a game was at Nebraska, their defense was a joke and it was fun seeing all the fans go home angry," the alleged quote read. "Looking forward to having my way with that secondary again this year."

There is only one problem with these statements. Shenault never made them. The quote was fabricated.

The All-Pac 12 wideout set the record straight on Twitter yesterday.

Shenault did catch 10 passes for 177 yards and a touchdown while adding a rushing touchdown in a win over the Huskers last September. He pretty much had his way with Nebraska that afternoon, though he never spoke tauntingly about it.

Colorado beat the Huskers last season. Nebraska will get another chance against Shenault and the Buffaloes on September 7 in Boulder.
