The Ohio State Buckeyes busted millions of brackets on Friday by themselves by going out and getting eliminated by Oral Roberts in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
After a disappointing loss, Ohio State’s E.J. Liddell would take to Twitter and post the disgusting messages he got from upset fans who wished death on him, called him gay slurs, and other things.
In one message he tells Liddell, “I hope you somebody shoot you in ya face fr [sic] bruh you is a f—ing bum.”
“Piece of s—,” the person wrote. “You managed to do it again.”
They continued: “You are such a f—ing disgrace. Don’t ever show your face at Ohio State … I hope you die, I really do.”
“I’ve never done anything to anyone in my life to be approached like this,” he wrote in another tweet. “This is not me saying anything negative about Ohio State fans. I love you all dearly and I’ve felt nothing but appreciated since the first day I stepped on campus.”
Despite the major upset, Liddell had 23 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Buckeyes.
“This is obviously a really, really bitter end to a terrific season,” Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann said. “We’ll own that and accept it, and we’ll move forward.”
