Singler has since changed the handle, and he joins Jon Scheyer as Blue Devils who've been messing around on Twitter since winning the national championship.

Scheyer tweeted a phone number moments after the game and encouraged fans (and haters, presumably) to "Hollerrrrr at me!!"

Not surprisingly, Scheyer wins again.
