Tommy Rees' Mentions On Twitter Are Absolutely Brutal

Not cool.

Notre Dame fans have always had a love/hate relationship with senior quarterback Tommy Rees. While he's stepped up and saved the Irish on numerous occasions (think 2012 here), he's also had his share of turnover-laden performances. Yesterday's game against Oklahoma was a tough go for Rees, as he completed just 9 of 24 passes along with two touchdowns and three interceptions in a loss to the Sooners. To put it mildly, Irish supporters have been letting him know just how disappointed they really are.

Since the start of yesterday's game, Tommy Rees' Twitter mentions have been absolutely brutal, as fans (and hecklers) have been lining up to take their shots at the much-maligned signal-caller. Below is just a portion of what's been sent to Rees. We didn't even include tweets with obscene language, of which there are dozens.

Does Rees deserve to be criticized for some of the decision making he displayed yesterday? Sure. Does he deserve hundreds/thousands of people tweeting obscenities or insults at him? Probably not.
