It’s not a surprise that there are some Oklahoma Sooners fans who are mad that Jordy Bahl decided to transfer to the Nebraska Cornhuskers. However, some of those fans' reactions after the National Championship pitcher was hurt in his first start for the Huskers were beyond the pale.
Bahl exited her first game for the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Thursday afternoon after struggling a bit against the Washington Huskies. However, it wasn’t her pitching struggles that Sooners fans were picking on. It was the fact that she had to leave after she suffered an ankle injury that brought out the worst in OU fans.
The Twitter account Message Board Geniuses found several posts from Oklahoma followers on those message boards that were pretty despicable. Normally, that account finds pretty humorous posts. This time around, they weren’t funny at all.
“She made her bed,” one poster wrote. “Now she gets to lie in it. Still think she was wrong to portal the day or so after winning the championship. Took attention away from those who earned it.”
The post was liked or replied to with laughing emojis by several of the other users on that message board.
Three more posters were even more cold-blooded. One posted, “at least she’s happy right?” Another wrote, “I hope that boyfriend was worth it.” Finally, another simply posted “lolololololol.”
The worst of them all was a post that read, “the d**** of consequences rarely arrives lubed.”
None of these posters were alone in apparently taking quite a bit of pleasure in the Nebraksa Cornhuskers star getting hurt. At the moment, it’s unknown just how badly she’s hurt or how many games Bahl might miss.
Oklahoma Sooners fans mock Nebraska Cornhuskers star after injury
Certainly, Jordy Bahl angered more than a few Oklahoma Sooners fans when she decided to come to Nebraska. I’d like to think that if the shoe was on the other foot, that wouldn’t be the reaction from NU fans.
College sports in general, seems to be getting a bit more cutthroat. But taking pleasure in a college athlete’s injury should be off-limits.
