Lost in all of last night’s Mac Jones hysteria was a tweet Jones quickly deleted after sending it out to his followers.
Jones wrote, “Nothing but respect to the program yet an old man is acting like a 12 year old.”
That tweet came shortly after Darin Hinshaw’s “sub-tweet” about life-changing decisions, which was obviously about Jones’ flip to Bama:

So is Jones’ tweet about Hinshaw?
Some say yes, but my assumption is no. If I were a bettin’ man, I’d bet it was directed toward one of the many UK fans tweeting hateful things to Jones about his flip. As always in cases like this, there were personal attacks sent directly to Jones, and though we can’t see them all, my guess is some “old man” took things too far.
Or was it meant for Hinshaw?
Either way, someone rubbed Jones the wrong way by acting childish.
