Auburn Football: Tiger Fans Angry At Local Recruit Who Chose Alabama
Auburn Fans Are Absolutely Insane

We all know that SEC football fans are nuts. That's not a surprise. But Auburn fans are taking things a bit too far with their treatment of hometown recruit Rashaan Evans, who chose to attend the University of Alabama instead of Auburn.
According to a Rivals report:
"Someone actually put out an article about my family's business telling all Auburn fans not to go there," said Evans. "We are going to eventually start losing money. People are telling restaurants in the town not to serve us. It's hard for me to go out and chill with my friends like I have always done because people keep coming up to me telling me I made a bad decision. It's grown men. They are asking me why I did this to them. I told them I had to do what is best for me. You know I knew this would happen. I knew people would be mad and say stuff. I didn't think it would be like this. It wasn't a complete shock to me, but I guess that's just how fans are. It's just crazy right now. What's getting crazy is people are going to the board at my school trying to get me in trouble. They are telling my teachers I am a bad kid and all this stuff. It's just bad right now. Social media has definitely been the worst. People on Instagram are telling me how they hope I tear my ACL in game one. They will laugh when I do. They are saying my family is horrible and how they didn't raise me right. It's just crazy."
I know Auburn fans are as passionate as anyone about their team, but this is way over the top, and just plain wrong. It's time to back off a little bit and let these kids make the decisions that are best for them.
After all, it's just a game.
