Thayer Evans Might Need A New Cell Phone Number

Fox Sports reporter Thayer Evans messed with the wrong professor at the University of Auburn.

Evans was reportedly calling professors in order to get dirt on star quarterback Cam Newton. Evans has made it clear he has it out for Newton and was in the process of continuing his witch hunt against the Heisman hopefully.

That is until one professor decided enough was enough and started circulating his number on the Auburn message boards Wednesday evening:

One outraged Auburn fan defended the conduct (on what is now an inaccessible Facebook status update, but was screen grabbed by an attentive tipster). The Auburn fan (who holds a law degree) declared, “Thayer Evans’ cell # is (713) XXX-XXXX. Call him and let him know what you think of his ‘reporting’ on the Cam Newton situation.”

Then he defended it. He said, “Actions have consequences…even for members of the media. … “honesty and truthfulness and obedience to law are (part of the Auburn Creed). Mr. Evans believes in neither. That his aims coincide with yours is not an excuse for you to advocate such mendacity and lawlessness.”

Karma, baby.
