Twitter reacts to Dorial Green-Beckham possibly being eligible in 2014

Former Missouri Tigers wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has had one heck of an off-season. He was dismissed from Mizzou, contemplated going pro, considered the FCS route for a minute, but ultimately, DGB settled on staying at the FBS level.

Dorial Green-Beckham, originally recruited by the Oklahoma Sooners, may have not came to Norman the way anyone expected him to, but DGB is finally wearing crimson as of August 2014.

Now most transfers have to sit out a season before they can play. However, according to The Oklahoman, DGB may be playing SOONER than expected. (pun fully intended…i hate myself)

University of Oklahoma officials feel very confident about their chances to get wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham approved for immediate eligibility with an NCAA waiver, sources told The Oklahoman.

OU still hasn’t filed the appeal yet, but plans to send it to the NCAA soon after they receive additional documentation from Missouri.

According to sources, OU will appeal using the so-called “run-off” waiver, created by the NCAA a couple years ago for players who were removed from their programs for reasons beyond their control.

Green-Beckham’s appeal will center around the fact that he was never charged in the incident that ultimately got him kicked off Missouri’s football team, sources said. The receiver was alleged to have broken into an apartment and shoved a woman down stairs.

If DGB were to play this season, Oklahoma’s passing game would be a serious threat to the rest of the country. The Sooners are relying mostly on Sterling Shepard and young receivers to step up, but DGB gives the Sooners a proven outside threat.

However, Twitter is going mad over the news. Let’s take a live look.


Land Thieves, less of a tweeter, more of a prophet.

Conflicting emotions, I know.


Well, there’s no hurt in trying…

I know, right?

My personal favorite.

I think people forget what allegedly means.

“Talented freak.” We need that on a t-shirt.

Ouch, Doug.

Or Oklahoma’s? heh.. 

Of course a Goodell reference.

Even a popular parody account got in on the fun.

People change, Austin.

It certainly helps.
