It has been just a few hours since Alex Oriakhi made his decision to transfer to the University of Missouri and already his twitter account has been beseiged by probably hundreds of malcontents who are calling him every name under the book, questioning his moral fiber, and berating him endlessly all because he did not pick their school.  And yes, sadly enough, Kentucky fans are in on this, along with what seems to be mostly North Carolina and UConn fans.

Seriously.  Is this the level of ape-dom that basketball fans have devolved to.  It’s plain disgusting and if you are doing this, you seriously need to take a long, hard look at your life and how you express yourself.  You are not representing any fanbase, you are embarassing the fan base.  So just stop it.
