As we learned last winter with Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe (who voiced his concern over the Bears-Vikes game being played on the rock hard playing surface at the Minnesota Golden Gophers stadium) most people don’t value the opinions of specialists in the football world.
Even if the “World of Warcraft” fanatic thought TCF Bank Stadium playing surface would be a “concrete train wreck”
Ohio University punter Paul Hershey did some squawking through social media anyway.
Let’s say he wasn’t happy that his Bobcats are going to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise, Idaho, Hershey tweeted:
“Idaho?? Who the (bleep) wants to play there in December??”
I’d link it, but his account is now gone.
Don’t you people realize that once you tweet something- deleting it/your account, doesn’t undo it what’s already been said? You can’t un-ring that bell.
“As the punter, obviously I don’t want to play in the cold,” Hershey later tweeted to Toledo Blade Ohio Bobcats beat writer Zach Silka. (Good to see a Toledo Blade beat writer covering a MAC team get some national pub)
Like it’s all that much warmer in Athens, Ohio this time of year. Hershey is an all conference punter, but maybe he’s been infected by the same bug that bit the Bobcats mascot last year. Remember when he attacked Brutus the Buckeye last fall? Fun times in this program. (watch video here)
I’m sure Hershey will be very warmly received in Idaho. Would be cool if Ohio U. could schedule Boise State.
