Let me reiterate, since I've already iterated: I wouldn't say anything on twitter to anyone that I wouldn't say to them in person, and that even means anyone, including political figures. If I give praise, I do it humbly, and if I criticize, I try to be nice about it and do it in a constructive manner. Most of the time, on Twitter, I am asking questions to get information.

As far as sports players are concerned, the only one I've
ever followed is Marcus Lattimore, because he's an inspiration. I ignore all the recruits and I don't search for any sports players in any sport. The only reason I know what Kinlaw said, is because TheBigSpur and SCSportsTalk keep tweeting him. I don't know why they keep retweeting him, but, yes, he is running off at the mouth and I think he needs to be quiet, but that is my opinion. Obviously, Muschamp doesn't care and neither do you. Y'all say they're busting their asses every day, but, that has been proven not to be the case. They DID NOT use all their practices and they're NOT working hard enough, or else THE SCOREBOARD would reflect differently.

Now, you can be OK with losing, but I'm not. I'm not gonna cuss a player on Twitter or in real life or go up to Columbia and show my ass to anyone, but I'm quietly disappointed about things right now, and I'm gonna express my dislike on here, because that is what this place is for. Hopefully, the players ARE getting mad .... it will be about time they got motivated. That orange and purple team just won their 3rd National and probably 17th Conference championship, while we haven't scores a point in a game and a half.
This is a horrible take. Yes, whatever happened before the Belk Bowl didn't work. No one is proud of that or of losing. But do you really think these players don't give a shit or are lazy? The bowl game was horrible, but we've beaten that dead horse. I go to USC and not a student athlete, but I know for a fact they are busting their asses. Sometimes things don't go your way. That is life. It's going to be fixed. There is so, so much that goes into everything.

But this is what I was referring to. Armchair critics are out here criticizing a bunch of 18-22 years old when they are the ones doing all the work. It's perfectly okay to be upset (for good reasons), but it's good to keep a perspective. Not necessarily you specifically, but in a general sense.

I've never set foot in a college classroom. I've always assumed that college was very difficult, and I've often wondered how athletes can lift weights, practice, go to class, study film, study, go to church, and not burn out. Of course, I never actually see them with a book and when I listen to some of them talk I don't necessarily understand how they can barely speak English, yet graduate early, but, that's for the professors to decide. I'm still in awe of their athletic ability, AND, the fact that they're getting a degree, because I don't have a degree, not do I have kids. I guess that's why I have contributed monetarily.
In direct response to your comments, if they're working hard enough, then they're simply not talented enough, and we need to quell any higher expectations of them.

Adults can do whatever they want on social mediaóbut there are repercussions. Thatís the biggest misconception I think. Youíre free to be a dick, but that also means that I can not hire you or tell you youíre acting like a child.

I get the need for athletes to build brands with social media, but I also think it should probably be done through the public relations department.

Yeah...I mean all people should really understand that social media can be a face tattoo if you are not anonymous. It will stay with you forever, forever, forever...

Social media really brings out the assholes.


That said, they should expect a fair amount of negativity after that bowl game performance. I would stay off social media, and ghost my account until after baseball starts up. The trolls are out in force after what happened Monday. I’ve unfollowed a lot of orange since then.

Twitter is like smoking in bars and restaurants used to be.

20 years from now we will look back and wonder how it was ever a thing. It’s obnoxious, unhealthy, and should’ve been stopped long ago.

It's not just Facebook. The entire industry--google, facebook, apple--is built on selling the consumer a product they don't really need or at the very least is just a convenience, and then selling the consumer to advertisers.


Everything, and I mean everything, you do online is recorded and mined for data. Or bitcoin mining.

I have to agree.
Not for the random Joes that never went to Carolina telling st kids.
But when you follow verified news sources that do just that, report the news in very quick blurbs.

Like right now during NFL and College coaches hirings and firings , itís very helpful.

That is the most dangerous and concerning thing about social media. Even verified news sources are bowing down to the clickbait, shock headlines.


Sports, that's fine, but something like real world news cannot and should not be boiled down into a few sentences or even a 200 word article. These are complex issues with multiple points of views and angles to be considered. By all means, keep up with the headlines, but for the story, indepth and investigative journalism should be the gold standard--not the outlier.
