What did we ever do before Twitter or before words like sub-tweeting and trolling entered our lexicon?

Some us might be out of work.

Thankfully, though, there are those who just can’t help themselves and use Twitter to relieve stress and/or express anger, dismay, what-have-you.

Such was the case late Wednesday night when Texas A&M wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead jumped on the Twitter Train of Regret with his rant — his sub-tweet — about loyalty after 5-star quarterback Tate Martell announced on Twitter his decommitment from A&M.

Of course, when something like this happens, everybody with a computer, a phone or a tablet and a Twitter handle sees it. Some feel it necessary to respond or poke fun or what-have you. This would be trolling.

It appears that Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith couldn’t help jumping into the middle of Moorehead’s mess. Of course, Martell, who visited Ohio State in March, could very well end up being a Buckeye.

Smith is definitely known for his freedom of expression and posts of engagement with other coaches on Twitter. Here’s what he felt compelled to tweet after his colleague in College Station went off the deep end.

Subtle, but to the point.

Excuse me now as I return to patrol for the next trolling sub-tweeter.
