Earlier tonight, Notre Dame fans received seemingly wonderful news: Irish star defensive end Stephon Tuitt, pegged as a sure-fire first round pick in next April’s NFL Draft, would be remaining at Notre Dame for his senior season, according to a report by The Observer, the student newspaper. Per the report: Irish junior defensive end Stephon Tuitt said he will return for his senior season next year, he told The Observer on Wednesday. “I’m coming back next year,” Tuitt said. “I’m a junior. I still have one year.” However, not too long after the news broke, Tuitt posted something rather interesting on his Twitter: “Can’t Believe everything you read. Goodnight.” He quickly deleted the tweet soon after, but naturally, many fans saw it and it caused some uproar: RT @DOCnation_7: Can’t Believe everything you read. Goodnight — Matt Fortuna (@Matt_Fortuna) October 17, 2013 and Stephon Tuitt adding to the confusion on his future with this tweet “RT @DOCnation_7 Can’t Believe everything you read. Goodnight” — Angelo Di Carlo (@angdicarlowndu) October 17, 2013 Straight from Stephon Tuitt himself. Via Twitter, at least. RT @DOCnation_7: Can’t Believe everything you read. Goodnight — Irish Illustrated (@NDatRivals) October 17, 2013 It seems pretty odd that he would delete the tweet, particularly if the reports weren’t actually true. At least at the moment, Irish fans can’t be sure if Tuitt will be back in the blue and gold next season — I guess the wait for the big decision will continue.
