If you read this site with any regularity, you know I’m not the world’s biggest Twitter fan. And you’ve probably also picked up on the fact that I’m not a real fan of trash talkers, either.
So when you see trash talking on Twitter, it’s probably a safe bet that I’m sitting behind my keyboard rolling my eyes at the goings-on.
Enter Auburn quarterback commitment Zeke Pike. It seems the Kentucky native is already marching in step with the many AU and UA backers who believe the best part of the Iron Bowl rivalry is the ugly, non-stop name-calling and barb-tossing.
A sample of some of Pike’s recent Twitter battles with Crimson Tide fans:
“I can tell you’re an Alabama fan cause you have no educational skills. It’s FAMILY not fambly . . . Something only AU knows about.”
“nothing better than knowing I’m gonna play for the best program in the country. It’s better gaining bama haters much love for you!”
“I knew I was suppose to be an Auburn Tiger when I stepped on Alabama’s campus and hated everything”
“Can I get directions to Ttown menswear? I heard there’s some cool stuff there?”
Now who doesn’t look forward to having this cocky blowhard in the SEC?
(Sidenote — Before some Auburn fan screams that I must be a “Bammer,” please remember that you would be the one disgusted by such actions if Pike were a Tide commit blasting Auburn. I don’t care who he plays for, the kid’s parents should take his Twitter away.)
