The University of Akron Zips are not doing so hot in football this season. They're 0-7 in the conference and 1-10 overall. With talk of the University of Maryland heading to the Big Ten conference, Taylor Smith, an Akron student with ties to Maryland (she wrote "Heart in Maryland" in her Twitter bio), pondered about the possibility of a game between the currently 4-7 Terrapins and Zips, and how shitty that game would be. (It would be really shitty.)
Akron Football vs Maryland Football would be a great game because they both suck...— Taylor Leigh Smith (@taysmitty) November 19, 2012
Somehow, an offensive lineman from the Zips named Michael Casimos found the tweet—maybe he searches "Akron football" on Twitter?—and said some rather rude things to Smith and another student who was saying mean things about the team. Of course, Casimos deleted the tweets, but Smith got a screencap before he did.

If you go to the Zips' website, you can find Casimos and his profile. As mentioned in his tirade, Casimos is a freshman. It explains so much.
