Irish Fans Are Killing Tommy Rees on Twitter

By DJ Byrnes on October 1, 2013 at 2:01p
Irish fans are piling on.

Tommy Rees went 9/24, 104 yards, 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions in Saturday's loss to Oklahoma. Irish fans aren't too happy with him. A small sampling:

This is your daily reminder: some people are the worst.

Yet another example of how twitter is both one of the best and worst creations of recent memory.

I agree with you TennBuckeye19 as Twitter contains the word wit and twit.

Tweet like a champion today.

Fig thing Irish fans are hilarious.

Those are the Notre Dumb fans, not the Notre Dame fans.

That glue one is pretty funny

If it was my tweet, I would've gone with paste rather than glue.

I can see the irony in it...can't even get eating paste correct...

There'd be plenty of Buckeye fans doing the same if our QB was Tommy Rees. Stupidity is part of every fan base.

Yep.  I can just see the tweets at Ryan Hamby post Texas or Justin Zwick after Iowa, to name a few instances where it'd have been bad.

Yes, there were some really evil people after that Texas game.  I don't get it.

I bought him a beer last winter.  Didn't dare mention anything about that game though.  Really nice guy.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Man, for Hamby's sake I am really glad twitter was not around

#bauserbombs anyone?  During the Nebraska game, that was trending...

I got to know Ryan for a couple of years after his college career. He was still here in the Columbus area at the time. A couple of his buddies would lightly guff him about it. I never did. He was a good guy. Last I heard, he was back in the Cincinnati area.

We have not been the kindest in the past--Bauserman and Bellisari both starred in jokes like: "They want him in Afghanistan--he would be sure to overthrow the Taliban."  But I don't recall anyone threatening to break anyone's legs.  That's classy.

I heard people in the Shoe wishing for Todd Boeckman to get hurt during the 07 Illinois game.

Who was our back up back then? Wasn't it Rob Schoenhoft?

Yes.  Bauserman and Henton were freshmen.

Very sad to wish ill will on any player whether it's your team or not. Have I gotten on players or made jokes, of course, we all have. That said, don't think I've ever wished bodily harm or broken bones on anyone, especially a college athlete....crazy!! Glad I don't have twitter.

Come on now seriously? You can't tell me that you didn't for just one second wish someone would knock that smugness off of Johnny Manziel's mug more than once! I wouldn't want the guy to suffer a career ending injury but I feel a sense of justice if someone leveled the little prick!

A kid smiling during a football game? Yeah what a prick!!! I cant stand the Johnny hate...its so senseless. You have let ESPN convince you to hate the young man. Yet you dont even know him. You say you would feel a sense of justice if someone leveled him. Last week i twice saw a razorback try and "level" him. Guess what happened....they missed the tackle and gave up first downs. People say they wanna see him get crushed, but this isnt NCAA 14 you cant just use the hit stick and its as easy as that. We have a generation of football fans who cant enjoy greatness. in fact its a generation of sports fans who let ESPN decide who and what they like

The sad part is that it's not obvious that the original "tweeters" were under the age of 15 and in the prime years of being irresponsible and stupid.

Yeti's have feelings too.

I dunno, given the alternative Twitter hate might not be that bad...

It actually looks like Kelly tossed in a few hashtags and mentions in there. 

Jonnferrell's picture

I can't understand why anyone wants to play for that guy.  He looks like a maniac on the sideline.

It's funny that Brian Kelly thinks they are good enough to get this upset when they play bad. 

razrback16's picture

Yeah when you treat your players like that and embarrass them on national tv, you pretty much kill their confidence and make it so they don't want to play for you.

Rees cannot get a break. Fans killing him on Twitter, Kelly in his face, defenses pounding him on the field . . .

I have wondered whether the use of Twitter will go down. It can be a great informative tool, but man there is a lot of crap on there.
