Skip Bayless tweeting Romeo Langford great example of what NOT to do

Hey guys, Skip Bayless did something dumb again.

After Romeo Langford picked Indiana over Vanderbilt and Kansas last night, the outspoken Fox Sports personality did what every person on the internet SHOULDN’T do: he tweeted a recruit.

Oh, where do I even start? Bayless is a Vandy alum, which explains why he was upset with Langford’s decision; however, like many Vandy alums, he made it all about himself and blasted an 18-year-old to his nearly 3 million followers. Also, I know Vandy’s got a great class coming in with five-stars Simi Shittu and Darius Garland, but national championship contender? Slow down, buddy. Focus on getting above .500 first.

If Bayless handled the situation like an actual adult, he would have ended the tweet after the first sentence. But, he’s Skip Bayless, so we shouldn’t even be surprised.

    Everyone has a right to dream? But you are correct in pointing the first sentence of the tweet should have ended there.

    UK fans do this all the time, but at least most of them don’t work for the media.

    He has the country talking about Skip, not Romeo which is exactly what he wanted.

    Maybe Bayless is actually right. Or not. Only time will tell.

    Blasted? Lol
    #overreact much?

    • Yeah she does nothing but lose credibility with this ridiculous overstatement. Of Bayless’ tweet and her post it is her post that is the more absurd.

    He didn’t actually tweet @ the recruit. It was more like, “Hey Romeo, if you’re reading this… blah, blah, blah…”. That being sad, Skip is still a jerk.

    I’ll never understand how “sports analysts” who never played any professional sport but run their mouth like crazy manage to get on tv and have people care what they think. It’s almost as bad as when people give a crap what Lavar Ball thinks.

      It’s like the news blaming trump for Russian collusion when there clearly is none. It’s not about news. It’s about entertainment.

    Overreact much? Guess it’s a slow news day. I thought it was just a joking tweet anyway, and he’s a Vandy fan. He knows Vandy isn’t winning a championship any time soon.

    If one looks in the dictionary under the word “asshat”, there is a picture of Skip Bayless.

    Why does everyone hate Skip? (Honest question)

      There is a lot of reasons. One, he’s a know it all prick. Two he is arrogant for a never has been. Three, why does anyone like skip should have been your question.

    Romeo will get to IU and play more like Juliet… you heard it here first.

    Romeo is a good player, but there’s a reason his only “major” offers came from Vandy, IU and KU with KU not really having a spot for him with a loaded backcourt. When a “top 10” recruit doesn’t hold current offers from U.K., Duke, UNC, Arizona, Mich St etc, there’s a reason

    After reading the tweet, I feel like the whole thing was in jest and he was trying to be funny. He didn’t even tag the guy in his tweet.

    “But you should’ve signed with the best school in the country” yeah, the entire tweet is a just a joke.
