After the tweets dropped, Tabor's mother reached out to members of the Florida media to deny that the account belongs to her son.

">@_31Flavorz isn't his account. But she & UF players have @ it before. Anyways, tonight's tweets have been deleted.

FWIW, Tabor's mom told me @_31Flavorz isn't his account. But she & UF players have @ it before. Anyways, tonight's tweets have been deleted.

Of course, the account does appear to belong to Tabor, who apologized for the tweets this morning.

We're glad that cooler heads have prevailed here. Through three games, Tabor has 10 total tackles, four pass breakups, and an interception so far this season.
