Trayce Jackson-Davis is one of the best players in college basketball. He’s been injured this season, and has only played in 10 of the Hoosiers 13 games. He is averaging 16.8 points per games, 6.8 rebounds per game, and 4.5 blocks per game. Indiana is 10-3 this season. The only losses coming to Arizona, Kansas, and Rutgers. TJD is a Senior from Greenwood Indiana, and could have gone pro after last season. He came back and that arguably catapulted IU into the top-15 of preseason rankings. He is the face of the program. But all of that didn’t stop one Indiana fan from sending TJD a nasty letter. This letter was posted to twitter on Wednesday night as an Indiana fans sends TJD nasty letter.
You wonder why players experience mental health issues and problems. We are going to continue to get better as a team as we continue this journey. Thank you @TimWeaver20 for your words of encouragement! Go Hoosiers! #iubb pic.twitter.com/ubnVlluMpw— TJD (@TrayceJackson) January 4, 2023
I want to get this out of the way; Tim Weaver is an idiot. He starts the letter by saying it’s illegal to not forward the letter onto TJD… uh no it’s not. Also, what is the need to underline your points? Reading something like this will test your faith in others. Just go and read the comment section. That should restore it pretty quickly. Does this Indiana fan remember the last 20 years of ineptitude with a spackling of success? This is the best Indiana basketball team in the last decade. They’re currently ranked 15th in the AP poll. I’m sure 99% of IU fans don’t feel this way, but it’s still a bad look. Every other fan base should look at this letter and tell themselves: “I will not be the Tim Weaver of my fan base.” Don’t be like Tim, everyone.
