Smile! You're on the Post of Shame!

WARNING: The tweets included in this post might have language most would consider to be offensive. Viewer discretion is advised.

We've all seen the picture, we've all witnessed the backlash, the awkward twists and turns and embarrassing behavior from the opposing fan base.

My thoughts about the whole situation? I think it's great for the rivalry. How can you get worked up negatively about a kid burning a letter.. Let me repeat that.. A LETTER.

This is perfect for the rivalry, it adds fuel to the fire (no pun intended) that's been lacking for years. I wouldn't have a problem if a Buckeye burned a letter from Michigan. BUT, I doubt Hoke would openly recruit a kid that has committed to Ohio State. That's a totally different issue in itself.

The purpose of this post is to show how the backlash has gotten out of hand and how some "fans" have stooped to, for lack of a better word, pathetic levels to show their pride in the Ohio State University. I warn you all that there is inappropriate language included in the tweets below. Let this be a lesson to not only Michigan fans, but fans of all schools. Threatening a high school kid, regardless of what was said, doesn't help your school and makes you look like a fool. You're not anonymous behind a computer. After all, this is football we are talking about. You're getting angry at a 16-18 year-old kid that feels passionate about the school he wants to play his college ball for the next four years. Cool. Keep your emotions in check.

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the post of shame! Smile!
