USF fans are the worst on twitter. Stfu...let the recruits live.
If you are worried about something someone is saying on twitter, you need to grow a set and then grow the F... up. Seems like you're taking things waaay too seriously. That makes you sound idiotic.
Lmao I'm just saying...that's why I started a topic homie. #gobulls
LOL... I just checked... I thought you were from another board. "I was like who is this coming here at us like that?"
USF fans definitely aren't the worst. The SEC fans are insane, but you are absolutely right people need to leave these kids alone.
"In October, when Dawson and Michigan parted ways, he was still readjusting to life in Michigan again after moving to Houston for a year, and his father had just been killed in a roadside accident. But none of that seemed to matter to Wolverines supporters. Fans sent him Twitter and Facebook messages telling him they hoped he broke his leg or that he was a "piece of s---."
Worst of all, some fans took shots at his late father.
"They said a couple things about my dad, like, 'He didn't teach you to keep your word,'" Dawson said.
Decommitments are a part of recruiting, and now so is social media, but when the two are used against each other, it can make an ugly scene.

^^^^^^^ what he said.
I assume the OP was referring to the tweet from Jeff Badet about tweets to him from USF fans after he committed to KY.
Lol not even...some people like @dougjackoryan "@AW_QB2 I bet u will follow the rest of the sellouts and go to Kentucky too....best of luck to you." And that's not even the worst.
I often think some of these dumb a$$es are UcF fans posing as Bull fans
Yeah... that's pretty messed up. People get sour and take it out on the guys without knowing what factored into their decisions.
Those juvenile turds don't need to have Twitter accounts. They are on it cause they like it. They know what they are getting into online unless they're a Mormon Samoan Hawaiian Catholic.
That being said, I don't follow recruits, and people that harass them are idiots.
Well they are going to love the UK fans when they screw up on the field. All fan bases have their crazies and twitter allows them to be as nasty as they can be.
UK definitely stands out, worse than USF. Maybe because I follow Mark Ennis on Twitter and he always retweets their worst.
Talk about a school getting a pass in football because of their conference affiliation... Imagine what USF could do if we had a conference at all!
I look at it a bit differently than most. If a recruit wants to beg for followers from a fan base then they need to be prepared for the backlash when they turn away the program. At the same time for those people who do tweet at recruits I think the shame they receive from publicly bashing a recruit on a social network should serve as a deterrent. They publicly make themselves look like petty a-holes.
Short version - A-holes give recruits what they ask for.
