Twitter was abuzz on Sunday, as news steadily trickled out that fifth-year Wyoming head coach Dave Christensen would be fired.
As the news finally broke officially at 3 p.m., opinions flooded the social media site from all directions, commenting on the merit of the firing and speculating on who Wyoming's 32nd head football coach will be.
And Christensen's players had their say, too.
Here is a series of tweets from Cowboys reacting to Christensen's dismissal.
