Joe Mixon reactivated his Twitter account on Monday and broke his long silence on the social media site with his first tweet since July 24 coming on Tuesday afternoon.

From his account @Joe_MainMixon: “Comeback Season In The Work But Now I'm Thinking Bigger.”

That tweet, which is a line from the Drake song “0 to 100,” came a day after Mixon received a one-year banishment from Sooner football on the heels of his arraignment on a misdemeanor stemming from his highly-publicized altercation with a female OU student at a Norman restaurant on July 25.

Mixon is not only suspended from playing for the Sooners in 2014, he is also banned from participating in any team activities. He has a court date set for Sept. 23.

The message was retweeted nearly 250 times and favorite 340 times in the first two hours.
