Former Mississippi State receiver Chad Bumphis took time out from his NFL draft preps to hit Twitter this morning. And one particular tweet has hit the Magnolia State like an atom bomb:
In the words of Dick Enberg, “Oh, my.”
Now, there are three ways to take that tweet. First, perhaps Bumphis was just giving general advice on a topic with which he has no first-hand experience. Second, maybe he was talking about the rumors of foul play at Ole Miss, a program that’s surprisingly in the mix for a top five finish in this year’s recruiting rankings. Third, he could be talking about his own stop in Starkville (which is how many Rebel fans are spinning it).
But Bumphis followed up his first tweet with this one:
And he also playfully dismissed a tweet from an Ole Miss grad/personal injury attorney from Mobile, Alabama:
Bumphis had 922 receiving yards last year to go with 12 touchdowns. He is expected to be a mid-round selection in this year’s draft.
But he’s already the #1 pick of Bulldog fans who are pointing fingers at Ole Miss’ recruiting turnaround and at a certain Rebel commitment’s recent tweet.
