ESPN's Marcus Spears Thought He Was Talking To Will Muschamp On Twitter, But It Was A Fake Account

Twitter got the best of ESPN football analyst Marcus Spears today. 

The former LSU and NFL star thought he was having a twitter conversation with Florida coach Will Muschamp, who is on ESPN's campus today as part of the network's "Car Wash" style of programming. Unfortunately for Spears, though, he was tweeting at this fake Muschamp account: 

The conversation started when Spears tweeted at @Will_Muschamp:

Spears finally realized he was tweeting at the wrong person when Florida football's official Twitter feed pointed it out to him.

Spears eventually began to tweet at the right account.

Then Spears found the real-life Muschamp and took a picture with him:
