Connor Shaw doesn’t have a future in public relations.
Shaw tweeted the following last Thursday: “3rd time the sole of my Under Armour shoes have completely busted. And we wonder why so many people have ‘freak’ foot injuries on the team..”
The South Carolina quarterback took down the tweet – no doubt upon encouragement from the athletic department – but the damage was done since Under Armour sponsors the school’s gear.
He had an exchange with Gamecocks star baseball player Michael Roth on Twitter, in which Shaw admitted he received about “20 calls in 2 min” after the tweet.
We probably won’t see Shaw in any Under Armour commercials after college.
