How embarrassing: social media burns Tennessee after Georgia State loss
If you are a sports fan and logged on Twitter in the last hour, chances your timeline has been flooded with tweets about Georgia State’s 38-30 upset over Tennessee on Rocky Top.
The Panthers, out of the Sun Belt, were 2-10 and picked to finish last in their division this season. Beating Tennessee is GSU’s first win over a Power 5 program.
As you can imagine, college football fans and media members of all affiliations are tweeting about the massive upset in Knoxville.
Here’s a small sampling of what’s being said about GSU’s shocking win in Neyland Stadium.
Fire the entire staff. This was the most pathetic performance I have ever seen from Tennessee, and I am truly embarrassed to call myself a fan now. @phillipfulmer

I said before the season that Tennessee was the second best team in the East.
I was incorrect.
