College basketball teams’ official Twitter accounts have drawn the ire of Auburn faithful this season a few times, often for refusing to post a final score, deleting said post or turning off replies. Auburn fans enjoy flooding the mentions with memes.
Georgia’s mistake Saturday wasn’t on Twitter, but rather on the official team website.
The Bulldogs posted the final score correctly (74-72) but listed it as a win against top-ranked Auburn (21-1, 10-0 SEC), which won on a layup with 3.3 seconds left by Wendell Green Jr.
Georgia (6-17, 1-9) shows its season record as being 7-16, 2-8 with a one-game win streak.
However, where it matters most, the Bulldogs got it right. They posted the final score on Twitter with a broken heart emoji, and the Auburn fans were ready with replies.
When Murray State didn’t post a final score tweet in December, Auburn fans began flooding the replies of future tweets that had nothing to do with Auburn, until Racers guard Tevin Brown took it upon himself to post the final score weeks later.
