UT QB Bray Says Hate Mail Led Him To Vent Via Tweet

If you’re the quarterback for a major college football team in an age when anonymous dimwits can send you nasty comments in a nanosecond all from under a veil of anonymity, you better be ready to take a whole lotta crap.  Tennessee QB Tyler Bray wasn’t… and he responded to said crap via Twitter on Saturday following the Vols 41-31 loss at Mississippi State:

 

“It’s hard because you put your heart out there and then go on your Twitter and see the hate mail.  You want to react, but you can’t.  I was just frustrated at the time.  It’s been two weeks in a row that we could have won, and it’s frustrating.”

 

For those keeping score at home, Bray tweeted that he hoped “bandwagon fans” of the Vols wouldn’t egg his home as some classless Georgia fans had done to Aaron Murray’s abode following the Bulldogs’ loss to South Carolina a week earlier.

UT QB Bray Tweets A Shot At Some Vol Fans, Then Backtracks

Last week, a few imbecilic Georgia fans decided to egg and roll with toilet paper the house of Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray after the Dawgs lost to South Carolina in Columbia.  Their immature, unintelligent actions gave UGA fans everywhere bad pub that none wanted and most didn’t deserve.

Well, after Saturday night’s 41-31 loss at Mississippi State, Tennessee’s quarterback feared he might get the same treatment as Murray from Volunteer fans.  Unfortunately, Tyler Bray expressed those feelings on Twitter.

4.  This writer says to see the SEC’s brightest stars you’ll need to keep an eye on the trenches.

Report: TE Charles To Leave UGA For NFL

All-American tight end Orson Charles will bypass his senior year at Georgia for a shot at NFL fame and fortune, according to ESPN.com.  Charles caught 45 balls in 2011 for 574 yards and five touchdowns.

The former high school teammate of Aaron Murray had become a security blanket for the Dawgs’ quarterback and his talents will certainly missed next season.  When it comes to blockers, the UGA run game will lose Charles, fullback Bruce Figgins and O-linemen Ben Jones, Justin Anderson and Cordy Glenn.

SEC Headlines – 8/8/11 Part One

Sorry we had to go with a links-only approach on the main page last week.  We’ve been tackling some business-related issues on the back end in the past few days.  Should lead to some improvements in the site that we feel you’ll enjoy.  (Those should launch in the coming weeks, by the way.)
