Don’t you just love social media?
In the wake of yet another series of damaging allegations levied against the football program, Baylor wide receiver Chris Platt sent out a tweet Friday afternoon that seemed to indicate the Bears would be wearing all-black uniforms for today’s game against TCU to protest the firing of Art Briles as head coach earlier this year. In fact, Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com retweeted the tweet below, adding “Baylor wearing all-black uniforms vs. TCU to protest Art Briles’ firing.”
This black out means more than just the uniforms to us. #truthdontlie

Platt’s original tweet quickly went viral this morning following McMurphy’s retweet, and Platt briefly made his Twitter account private. The receiver reversed course shortly thereafter, and sent out yet another tweet explaining that the uniform choice his nothing to do with Briles and everything to do with the Bears’ rivalry with the Horned Frogs.
