Michigan LB/DB Jabrill Peppers Calls Ohio State Supporters "Suckeye Fans"

Michigan LB/DB Jabrill Peppers took down an Ohio State fan heckler on Twitter this afternoon.

An Ohio State fan taunting Michigan's Jabrill Peppers on Twitter was in for a rude awakening today. The Twitter user brought up the fact Buckeye defensive backs Malik Hooker and Marshon Lattimore already have five interceptions this season, and Peppers has none in his career.

Peppers, a third-year player, proceeded to put the young fan in his place and take a shot at Buckeye supporters in the process. He referred to them as "Suckeye fans."

This isn't the first time Peppers has gotten upset on Twitter. Still, it's kind of unfair to compare his lack of INTs with Lattimore and Hooker. Those guys are asked to do different things than Peppers is. Stats don't always tell the full story.

This rivalry is really charged up. Can't wait until these two teams play this season.
