07:34 AM ET 09.06 | Nasty backlash from the season-opening loss to Boise State prompted one Georgia football player to give up Twitter for at least a week. Linebacker Christian Robinson, who normally enjoys engaging on the social media platform, vowed to stay off Twitter this week after being barraged with unwelcomed messages from fans reacting to the loss to Boise. "I got some pretty nasty stuff," Robinson said Monday night. "Right after the game, my phone was lighting up with just some nasty things. I've gotten some bad things before, but it was just a different level where I said I'm not going to deal with this right now."

ahhh. Makes more sense. Was thinking it was a reference to the players.

I might have something to say about the coach staying classy. Not 18-22 year olds.

Those were their version of "super hero" unis. They were just for the UGA game though... They have a different white jersey for home games this year... (sidenote: bunk rule change IMO... Mich St is still allowed to wear green..)

Social media sucks because of this. I thought the NCAA was taking a look at social media. I remember a national sports writer saying they were going to take a look at social media, especially in light of what happened with Cyrus Kouandjio's facebook page.

SEC fans need to grow up. You don't poison trees or spew venom at college kids just because of a football game.
