Kenny Bell Made Creighton Fans on Twitter Even Unhappier

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

After Georgetown thumped Creighton on Tuesday night, Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell didn't hide his thoughts on the results.

Nothing wrong with that, he's a Husker fan in all sports. He did have a few thoughts for people who look, well, more purple than anything else.

Well, things escalated rather quickly. Former Creighton baseball player Tony Roth threw the first punch.

Rather ironic coming from a minor league baseball player who never did much outside of A ball, but whatever. Bell had a measured response for him...

Others took issue with Bell's opinion on mixed fandom.

Can you be fans of more than one school? It's a little dicey, for sure. I've been a Husker fan since I was a little kid, but I also went to school at Nebraska-Omaha. The two schools don't play much, but I consider myself a fan of both. When UNO plays the Huskers in baseball or basketball, I don't root against either school. Granted, Nebraska's program is better in both, so that's not really an issue. But there's a difference in being a fan of both schools - and being a fan of Nebraska football who becomes a hater of Nebraska basketball because of Creighton.

Then, a Faux Creighton account got into the act and poured gasoline on the situation.

Ouch. But there's more...

Of course, our own Cobby couldn't resist joining in...

Of course, they had no choice to learn wine after Zima was discontinued....but I digress...

But seriously, you can see where this might be going...
