Joe Milton III's overthrows drive Tennessee fans crazy on social media
Joe Milton III is Tennessee’s starting quarterback. He can run a bit, but he also has a cannon for a right arm, and he likes to show it off.
The problem? He’s been incredibly inaccurate with his deep balls. He has overthrown at least half a dozen Vol receivers during the first quarter Saturday against Pitt.
And, let’s just say Tennessee fans aren’t handling it well on social media. Milton’s overthrows have drawn plenty of frustration on Twitter, but they’ve also led to some great jokes.
Check out some of the best reactions from fans below:

Tennessee still holds a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, so things are going OK on Rocky Top. However, Milton has missed some touchdown throws. We’ll see if he can settle down as the game goes on.
