Rumors fly after LSU QB Brandon Harris tweets at former teammate

This can only end poorly.

Rumors ran wild on Tuesday, as LSU quarterback Brandon Harris caused quite the stir.

The oft maligned Harris was benched on Saturday for Purdue transfer Danny Etling, a move that appeared to be successful. Now, it looks like Harris is sending some mixed signals, as a tweet he sent to former LSU wide receiver Tyron Johnson caused some controversy.

The tweet, which simply says "u smart", has been interpreted as a response to Johnson transferring out of LSU and to Oklahoma State. Harris didn't really help is odds by how that tweet would be interpreted with two moves: he turned his account private, and users noticed his recent follows included Urban Meyer, Tom Herman, and Gary Patterson.
