Tommy Tuberville might have received a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama from incumbent Doug Jones on Tuesday, however on Thursday he took an enormous “L” on Twitter.

Tuberville, who made faculty soccer head teaching stops at Ole Miss (1995-98), Auburn (1999-2008), Texas Tech (2010-12) and Cincinnati (2013-16), agreed with President Donald Trump’s claims that there was large voter fraud the previous couple days as Trump has fallen behind in a number of states that started counting mail-in ballots after Election Day. These claims have been made regardless of there being no proof of election fraud.

“The election outcomes are uncontrolled,” Tuberville tweeted. “It’s just like the whistle has blown, the sport is over, and the gamers have gone house, however the referees are all of a sudden including touchdowns to the opposite crew’s aspect of the scoreboard.”

“I would problem that as a coach, and (President Trump) is true to problem that as a candidate.”

After all, Tuberville’s analogy does not maintain up. The ballots being counted had been legally forged earlier than the Nov. Three election deadline, in accordance with officers in these states. Elections aren’t formally over till all of the votes are counted and the outcomes licensed.

Many individuals on Twitter, together with CNN anchor-reporter Jake Tapper, had been fast to make that time in phrases even Tuberville may perceive.

“That is inaccurate,” Tapper responded. “What the president is doing could be like if Coach Tuberville mentioned the 2008 Auburn soccer season by solely speaking up his 5 victories and pretended the 7 losses — together with that loss to Alabama, hooboy — did not occur.”

Auburn fired Tuberville quickly after that 5-7 season was capped by a 36-Zero loss to Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide.

“One other approach to have a look at it,” Tapper added, “Think about if within the 2008 LSU recreation, Coach Tuberville tried to say the sport was over on the half, when the (Auburn) Tigers led 14-3. (The) recreation truly ended with LSU victory 26-21. In order that declaration would have been untimely and false.”

Tapper’s blow may need been essentially the most notable, however loads of others piled on.
