When news broke on Wednesday that a University of Utah student had been arrested for threatening nuclear violence if the Utes didn’t win, Twitter users quickly got to work firing off commentary about the incident.
Several of the tweets jokingly praised the young woman for her passion, while others noted that most football fans know what it feels like to be driven crazy by their team’s lackluster performance on the field.
Here are 11 of the best reactions to the nuclear threat, which, thankfully, didn’t lead to actual violence. The Utes won Saturday’s game against San Diego State 35-7.
Tweets about passion for the game

Tweets from fans who are aware of their own violent streak
I can confidently say that if Texas State had a nuclear reactor, I would’ve have tweeted something similar to this after that UIW loss last year https://t.co/Phd5vAOTpN
