By now you've probably heard about Southern Cal coach Steve Sarkisian's recent high profile speech at a big donor event. I've never given a rousing speech to boosters while drunk, but if I did, I think it would look a lot like what Sarkisian did that night.
But it happens. Everyone makes mistakes. Another mistake that a lot of people make? Mixing up the tweet and direct message functions on Twitter. Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin learned that lesson this afternoon when he apparently sent the tweet captured below before quickly deleting it.

As I have learned after many a typo/autocorrect error, you can never delete a tweet fast enough. It's worth remembering that Sumlin is the same man who once fired his pool guy via Twitter, so this is kind of par for the course. The man lives his life 140 characters at a time and the rest of us are just along for the ride. On a related note, I wonder if USC athletic director Pat Haden has reached out to TV executives to see if he can move all Trojan games this season to daylight hours. If he doesn't college football Twitter may wear the #SarkAfterDark hashtag slap out. Until later . . .
