Things have gotten a bit nasty on Twitter at times this year with the Michigan football program. Fans were not happy with punter Blake O'Neill after his gaffe against Michigan State, and things got ugly for top running back recruit Kareem Walker after he decommitted from Ohio State on Tuesday night. Many believe he will wind up at Michigan, which explains the hate from Buckeye fans. After the most recent incident, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh requested some decorum from fans when "commenting on" players and recruits. Obviously he toes the line on outwardly admitting that fans tweet directly at players, but it's not hard to figure out what he's referring to.
