In the closing seconds of Saturday's Michigan-Michigan State contest, Wolverines punter Blake O'Neill mishandled the snap and one of the most disastrous plays we've ever seen occurred, ending with the Spartans scoring the game-winning touchdown with no time left on the clock.

Naturally, Twitter had the worst response, calling out the punter and even posing some death threats:

O'Neill's mentions weren't all negative though, as some of the notes sent were positive as well:

It was a disaster of an ending, but there's no room in any forum to make threats and slam people following something this unfortunate. It's tough enough that this is an incident that probably won't go away anytime soon.
