Missouri kicker Andrew Baggett faces nasty Twitter hate after missed field goal
Nobody in the sports world probably felt worse on Saturday night than Andrew Baggett. The Missouri kicker missed a chip shot 24-yard field goal in double overtime that resulted in the Tigers losing 27-24. That was the team’s first loss of the season.
We already showed you that the laces were in instead of out for the field goal, but that won’t matter to most of Mizzou’s fans. A bunch of Twitter users just destroyed Baggett by sending him nasty tweets filled with curse words. It’s stuff like this that results in kickers going crazy. If I were him, I’d just stay away from Twitter entirely for the next few days.
Before you think about going to college to be a placekicker because it’s an easy scholarship and can lead to an easy payday in the NFL, take a look at some of the nastiness you might have to deal with if you actually miss an important kick. Be warned — the language is extremely strong and upsetting.
@ABaggett99 go kill yourself everyone in Missouri hates you.

Even though it looks like everyone was sending hate his way, there were a few fans sending positive messages to Baggett. You can see that on Page 2.
