Arizona's Casey Skowron Dealing With Threats, Harassment On Twitter From Both Wildcats, Trojans Fans After Missed Kick, Fake Injury

Sadly, we've seen rabid fan bases go after players who make mistakes on the field of play. But after missing the potential game-winning field goal last night against USC, Arizona kicker Casey Skowron is actually getting harassed by both teams' supporters. Why? Well, one - he missed the kick, so a certain percentage of Wildcats fans are letting him have it. Two - he flopped after, trying to draw a penalty once he knew he'd missed, so USC faithful are upset. Here's the play:

Unfortunately, Skowron's Twitter mentions are downright horrible. Some people have even gone as far as to wish death on his family.

Sure, it was a bit of gamesmanship for Showron to attempt to fake injury and get his team another shot at the win. But this is still disgusting. Some of these people need to be reminded that college football is just a game.
