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