The SEC has a passionate fan base, to say the least. You’ll witness that when your quarterback can’t put anything together against a team that hasn’t won a conference game in the last 17 tries. Just ask LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings.
Jennings was tasked with having to take his Tigers into Razorback Stadium and give them a bounce back win after their OT loss to Alabama. Unfortunately, the sophomore slinger had a harder time than anticipated with the Razorback defense, completing 12-of-22 passes for 87 yards. Things were bad enough that the Tigers couldn’t even put points on the board, losing 17-0.
Since college football fans are known for being the most level-headed and understanding individuals around, it wasn’t surprising how fast the death threats and criticism started rolling in from Twitter.
Be a real leader and give your starting job to Brandon Harris you garbage ass bum! @JENNINGSWINNING

Anthony Jennings is the worst football player of all time and I seen Cade Foster, Jordan Jefferson, & Jeff Driskel play football.

-1 yard of offense in the first quarter is the most Anthony Jennings thing I’ve ever heard of — The LSU Logo (@LSU_Logo) November 16, 2014
Keep it classy, Tiger Nation.
*UPDATE* Level-headed Tiger fans make a strong stand for Anthony Jennings on Twitter after quarterback was bombarded with harsh criticism.
