There is a comment thread titled ‚ÄúI am happy Aaron Murray got injured‚Äù on stingtalk.com, a Georgia Tech sports message board not affiliated with the school.
It was started on Sunday at 2 a.m. and has more than 130 subsequent comments on it. Some commenters are siding with the theme of the thread‚Äôs title and some are denouncing the thread.
Georgia receiver Chris Conley doesn‚Äôt need to go far to find motivation to go against the Yellow Jackets. He hears about threads and comments like on stingtalk.com and he looks at his Twitter mentions.
‚ÄúBut just some of the comments that were made about players on the team being injured, namely players that just got injured, it kind of pissed some people off,‚Äù Conley said. ‚ÄúIt rubs them wrong. There‚Äôs not searching for motivation for this game.‚Äù
Conley tweeted on Monday about all the riff-raff the Internet and some Georgia Tech fans have had to offer so far this week.
‚ÄúWhy do tech fans gotta tweet at me about stuff? I couldnt care less about your GAvsTech delusions. My projects aren‚Äôt football related. Smh,‚Äù the tweet reads.
Conley said fans‚Äô comments can wear thin and he‚Äôs just ready for the game to be played.
‚ÄúJust some things that people said about anyone,‚Äù he said. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôve had a lot of people injured and they‚Äôve talked about a lot of them. Not necessarily players, but just fans. It‚Äôs a big rivalry in the state, everyone‚Äôs always talking about it.‚Äù
