College football fans are truly cut from a different kind of cloth. You talk smack to the wrong person, you might end up dead.
I’m not endorsing it, I don’t think it’s smart and I damn sure wouldn’t smoke someone for talking about the Badgers in the wrong manner.
Yet, I’d be lying to all of you if I didn’t point out that these fans exist! We live and die – sometimes very literally – for the sport.
Welp, this aged poorly!
Congrats to Jimbo Fisher on becoming the first former Saban assistant to slay the king. Hell of a game. https://t.co/SSiwSLsKiT

I think they’re an idiot and 100% deserve to have the book thrown at them. If you’re ever that fired up, grab another beer. Don’t grab a gun.
Also, how did this happen while the game was still ongoing? They didn’t even wait to see who was going to win before things popped off? That just makes no sense at all.
An absolutely absurd and tragic situation.
