Anybody can screen shot an embarrassing piece of correspondence and once it’s on Twitter or Facebook, it lives forever. Both Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and Texas Christian University (TCU) have gone viral recently for this reason.

And of course Jim Harbaugh responded to Edwards’ tweets. Source: CBSSports.com. Photo: WolverinesWire.
