When it’s coaching rumor season, cryptic tweets are either the best tweets or the worst tweets.
If you’re a coach or official at a school, you hate them. If you’re a fan hoping for something to come out of the woodwork, you love them.
And with this tweet from former Tennessee defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth on Thursday afternoon, both of those outcomes are probably happening.
Great news is on the horizon for us VFLs!!! It is just a matter of when! Thank you Mr. Haslam for trying to make Tennessee great again! #VFL

Mr. Haslam refers to Jimmy Haslam, the owner of the Cleveland Browns, who graduated from and remains a significant donor to Tennessee.
Naturally, Volunteers fans on Twitter took this tweet to mean that any number of things are certainly about to happen, guaranteed. Here are some of the best reactions:

Trying to imagine any situation in which Jimmy Haslam is hanging with Albert Haynesworth. I can't, but it would be hilarious.

UPDATE: Haynesworth has also changed his Twitter bio, probably to get his message across just a little more.
