It’s disgusting. We’ve always had a few nuts who’ll issue threats, but they do seem to be increasing. It’s bad enough in the political arena, but when people threaten athletes whose performance disappoints them, it’s really disgusting. Fortunately, it’s harder to remain anonymous today. Caller I.D. & traceable IP addresses can lead authorities to the source. Hope they find & prosecute whoever did this.
EJ has posted the tweets that he has received on Twitter. I am not posting them here, because those tweets violate the forum profanity and violence rules.
I kind of wanted to see Arkansas vs OSU. EJ and Moses are big buddies. Arkansas and Ohio State were Moody’s top two before Juwan Howard changed his mind and it became Arkansas and Michigan as Final Two. Moody family really cares for EJ. Would have been a fun game with also having Derek Fisher kin Duane Washington as the sharpshooter for OSU.
Hmmm; I’d like to think “we’re” better than that, but I guess there are a lot of different folks in that group of “we’re”.
I’ll note that I was impressed with Colgate’s top 7. They hustled, worked hard, shot well. We really could have lost that one. Frankly, I think we started the game in a manner to fit their game plan. When Muss pressed we were able to demonstrate our superior strengths.
ESPN announcer Dan Dickau (who played at Gonzaga before they were GONZAGA, so a little mid-major bias) tweeted last night that it would be interesting to see the email exchanges from October between midmajors and Power Six teams trying to schedule games, and how the P6 turned most of them down. I replied that Muss had scheduled ORU, North Texas and Abilene Christian, all in the Dance, plus OK State. Dickau’s response was that Muss and Ruta get it in terms of scheduling. You can have a good schedule playing good midmajor teams.
You only have to go back to Brandon Allen’s torched truck to see what Arkansas fans are capable of. I know there were two other vehicles set on fire at the same time. Not sure if they ever decided his truck was specifically targeted or who the arsonist was but I also know he received some pretty bad threats and comments as well.
Just wonder why the mods haven’t taken out Jeffrey in the Hawg Lounge and cmmclain on here yet? 2 legit Summer’s Eve spokesmen. They provide nothing but vitriol. Seriously, if you haven’t been to the Hawg Lounge in awhile, saunter on over there and read some of that garbage.
Is it wrong that sometimes I like to jab little Jeffy in the Hawg Lounge? I know it’s the lowest hanging fruit, but I just imagine how frustrated he must be locked in his mother’s basement, and it gives me pleasure. I am probably a very immature 48 year old, lol.
