Add a little more fuel to the Bedlam football fire.

Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills took to Twitter on Tuesday to stick up for fellow Sooner receiver Ryan Broyles and had some criticism of Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon.

Stills comments came after former LSU defensive back — and Jim Thorpe Award winner — Patrick Peterson tweeted, “Everybody follow the best WR in the College Football this year and last year @jblack_81 (Blackmon).”

Stills responded to Peterson, asking “You mean @RyanBroyles?”

Peterson then pointed out that Blackmon won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver last season.

Stills then went on to criticize Blackmon, saying he had better stats and publicity, but “(Blackmon) is all about big bodying people and sloppy routes. (Broyles) gets open by finding space.”

“Based off of routes, knowledge of the game and the caliber of his fellow receivers, I'd go (with) @RyanBroyles,” Stills tweeted.

On Wednesday, Stills apologized to Blackmon via Twitter.

“Apologies to @JustBlack81,” Stills tweeted. “Wasn't knocking the Biletnikoff winner at all. He makes huge plays and dominates the game.”
