Social media has changed sports.

LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson made his return to the LSU football team versus the Kentucky Wildcats last Saturday. He was showered with boos when entered the game in the first half.

Les Miles wasn't pleased with LSU fans after the game. He said he had never booed at a sporting event and fans should be their to support the team.

His players reiterated the same message to the media. But some even went to Twitter to voice their opinions, all backing the senior quarterback.

LSU receiver Rueben Randle left Tiger fans no wiggle room with his tweet.

"I don't preciate how our fans booed JJ wen he got in. Either u wit US or not. That wasn't necessary."

LSU offensive guard T-Bob Hebert said fans who showed their displeasure shouldn't be Tigers fans anymore.

"Anybody who booed #jj9 today needs to stop watching #LSU games and stop cheering for the tigers, we don't need you and don't want you"

Nothing changes on the defensive side of the ball. Morris Claiborne, who was written Jefferson's number on his bicep for every game the quarterback has missed this season, said the team will never leave the Jefferson's side.

"S/O to my boy JJ9 it's good to have u bk man. U no we will always have your bk #team LSU!!"

Twitter has revolutionized sports. With limited interview access to student athletes, Twitter allows them to voice their opinion at any time.

Last week I took a deeper look into which players use Twitter.
