Oregon Player Jokes About Carolina's 31-0 Lead, Hears It From Fans

In this past year's Valero Alamo Bowl, the Oregon Ducks led TCU by a score of 31-0 at halftime. As we all know, the Horned Frogs mounted a ridiculous comeback, forcing overtime and later prevailing with a 47-41 victory. At least one Ducks player is ready to joke about it, though.

Tyler Johnstone, a senior offensive lineman, was watching the Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks NFL playoff game Sunday afternoon. When the Panthers headed to halftime with a 31-0 lead, he dropped a little joke on Twitter.

Most fans were amused - but not all.

Johnstone was frustrated by some of the responses he received.

Oddly enough, Seattle did mount a similar comeback. The Seahawks fell short, however, 31-24.
