NC State's Kicker Getting Harassed On Twitter After Missing Potential Game-Winner

NC State kicker Kyle Bambard is getting harassed on Twitter after missing a potential game-winning field goal against Clemson.

Saturday afternoon, NC State kicker Kyle Bambard missed a 33-yard field goal try on the final play of regulation against Clemson, allowing the Tigers to push the game to overtime, where they ultimately prevailed. Unfortunately, fans have taken to Twitter to seek out Bambard and send him horrible messages.

Hundreds of negative messages have been sent Bambard's way - including death threats, suicide suggestions and a petition to the coaching staff to cut him from the team. It's ugly.

This is not the first time this has happened, and it likely won't be the last. Let's hope Bambard stays positive through the whole experience.
