Friend Of Alabama DB Marlon Humphrey Claims Controversial Tweet Was His

Last Saturday, Texas freshman cornerback Kris Boyd made national headlines when he was caught tweeting during halftime of his team's game against TCU. Today - at least for a few minutes - we thought it might have happened with another college football player.

As Alabama and Arkansas headed to halftime, the account for freshman defensive back Marlon Humphrey sent out an interesting message about "drunk" fans at games. But a few minutes later, one of Humphrey's friends - Alabama sprinter Tadashi Pinder - took responsibility for the tweet. Strange, to say the least.

Texas defensive backs are not the only ones who tweet at halftime apparently. (h/t @CecilHurt) pic.twitter.com/4LLHCscfrl

That was not Marlon, his Twitter is stuck on my phone and they got mixed up with bad signal.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban probably know a whole lot about Twitter, but he's going to get a crash course after the game, for sure.
