Wisconsin's Players Reportedly Called Photographers "F*cking Parasites" After Title Game Loss

A handful of Wisconsin's players reportedly took some of their frustration out on a group of photographers following their Big Ten title game loss to Penn State.

There are few things in sports as infuriating as losing an important game after blowing a huge lead - just ask Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. The Wisconsin Badgers now know that feeling after giving up an early 21-point lead against Penn State on Saturday night. Apparently, after the game, a few of the team's players had trouble controlling their emotions when dealing with photographers.

According to at least two photographers - Mike De Sisti of the Journal Sentinel and Michael P. King of the Wisconsin State Journal - a handful of Badgers players blocked them from doing their job. King alleges that they were called "f*cking parasites" as well. Here are the tweets:

De Sisti's photo shows junior cornerback Derrick Tindal, but obviously, it's unclear which players were involved.

Expect Wisconsin to issue a statement on the matter in the near future.
