KU’s Withey Causes Twitter Confusion - Lost Lettermen

KU’s Withey Causes Twitter Confusion

April 2nd, 2012| by

A lot of sports fans heard of Kansas center Jeff Withey for the first time on Saturday, when he had 4 points, 8 points and 7 blocks en route to Kansas’ upset victory over Ohio State, 64-62, to earn a spot in Monday’s national title game.

As a result of that and his unintimidating appearance, many fans have mistakenly moved the “h” in his name over a couple spots to call him “Jeff Whitey” – with hilarious results. Check out the Tweet below and click on the link for others compiled by Buzzfeed for the hilarity that ensues.

Are we the only ones that are reminded of this Chris Farley clip from “Black Sheep” [Warning: Language is NSFW]?
