Cougs on Cougs: BYU Mean Tweets

BYU’s upset of the no. 1 Zags brought a lot of haters out of the woodwork, so Jess and Mary turned it into a Jimmy Kimmel-esque segment.

If you haven’t heard, BYU took down undefeated no. 1 Gonzaga in one of the biggest (and perhaps most unexpected) upsets of the year Saturday, 79-71. It was a win that attracted all sorts of (pretty positive) national attention — ESPN, AP, BleacherReport... You name it, BYU was in the headline. But the win also attracted some negative attention, inspiring Cougars on Cougars’ latest and greatest Mean Tweets segment.

Drawing inspiration from Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets segments, Jess and Mary asked some fellow Cougar fans to read some of the meanest and coincidentally most hilarious tweets that followed BYU’s big win. They happily obliged and this amazing video was born. Keep an eye out for some especially familiar faces.

Huge shoutout to all those who read for us, and also to all those whose tweets we read; we couldn’t do this without you.

Hopefully BYU’s play in the WCC Tourney will inspire many more of these tweets. Send along any good ones you see! Watch BYU take on LMU Saturday at 2 p.m. MST.
