Vandy offensive line coach Herb Hand is a great guy and a fun Twitter follow. You can follow him on Twitter here. But yesterday Hand came face to face with the newest Twitter foil, someone who chose to Tweet obscene insults about his family.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the continued devolution of Twitter discourse. After all, Facebook is rapidly losing its popularity with the idiots out there, and those idiots have to go somewhere on the Internet. Of late they've picked Twitter. And I'm now to the point where I think you should have to pass a basic intelligence test to be allowed to Tweet.
Recently, the number of people on Twitter who go after wives and kids is downright scary.
Hell, even the mob leaves families alone.
But some on Twitter have a moral code that would even make mob bosses blush.
Yesterday @julianbucio, a University of Tennessee fan who happens to be one of 100 or so people I have ever blocked on Twitter because he sent me similar messages attacking my family, Tweeted this to Coach Hand, "dude I think your wife is f---ing someone while you coach your pathetic football team. #slut"
Last week Arkansas lost to Louisiana-Monroe and a crazy Razorback fan who goes by the YouTube name Liz Honey took the Internet by storm with her Arkansas athem.
Now, she's back.
And not wearing a BBB shirt, "Bring Bobby Back," like one enterprising Razorback fan did at this week's Bama game.
This week she's singing, "Ain't No Stopping Us Now."
Which is a bit ironic considering that's all Alabama did en route to a 52-0 loss.
Usually we wait to debut the entire Starting 11 at once, but this video is so absurd, I figure you need a little pep on your Monday morning to help ease the weekend hangovers.
1. It's Razorback song time.
When part one of Dixieland Delight: Missouri ended, we were standing on the sidewalk at one in the morning, no cabs in sight with the bars emptying hordes of Georgia and Mizzou fans into the street, and I'd taken to Twitter to send this message:
"Okay, new strategy. 10th and Cherry. First Mizzou person in car, $50 to get us to Days Inn. 4 miles away. Yes, Days Inn. Pimp style."
We needed a ride, badly.
But, first, let me include a bit from Shiloh that I neglected last time.
16. On my first trip to the Shiloh bathroom at around 9:15 a Mizzou fan is throwing up in the toilet.
Another Mizzou fan is completely disgusted. "F---," he says, "a Mizzou fan has already thrown up. Now Georgia fans are going to be saying we can't hang in the SEC."
This. Was. Awesome.
Now flash forward, to the three of us standing outside on a street corner in Columbia.
My Facebook news feed is good for two things:
1) Arguments about politics.
2) Arguments about college football.
