Georgia running back Nick Chubb suffered a gruesome injury in yesterday’s game versus Tennessee, serving as a catalyst for an equally as heated Twitter exchange between ESPN pundits Danny Kanell and Bomani Jones.
Shortly after the injury, Kanell twitted out his sympathies to Chubb, catching Jones’ eye, and ire. What started as some well wishing from Kanell turned into an exchange over paying college athletes, which then got a tad personal. Kanell has repeatedly argued against paying collegiate athletes, while Jones is passionately in favor of compensating them.
While the back-and-forth fell short of getting really nasty, it was entertaining nonetheless.
Then the mike drop by Jones.
