Flickr/West Point Public Affairs While there’s been some back-and-forth on what Brian Kelly actually said last night at a dinner at Grand Valley State, it’s being widely reported now that Tommy Rees will in fact be the starter for Notre Dame on opening day. While the move doesn’t come as a shock given the circumstances (Gunner Kiel transferred, Everett Golson was suspended), it hasn’t left most Irish fans feeling optimistic about this upcoming season. Right on cue, the Rees haters came back out of the woodwork to bash the junior signal-caller on Twitter. Here are the best reactions we’ve found so far. Good news, everybody. The #NSA was unable to spy on Notre Dame QB Tommy Rees’s calls. They tried, but they kept getting intercepted. — Brendan Loy (@brendanloy) June 6, 2013 BREAKING: Hours after naming him starter, Notre Dame has “seen enough” and benched QB Tommy Rees for “anyone else we can find with an arm” — NOT SportsCenter (@NOTSportsCenter) June 6, 2013 @chrisscottslone lol @ Tommy Rees — Bamaboy (@BamaboyRDT) June 5, 2013  Tommy Rees the Notre Dame starting QB? Oh boy they’re in trouble — Brian Villé (@Brian_4_Ville) June 6, 2013 Great i get to see ol bow-legged tommy rees run the field for another year — C Joseph (@cjorendi) June 6, 2013  Tommy Rees is the starting quarterback for notre dame #mediocreseason — Grant Hourigan (@Granthourigan) June 6, 2013 Congrats to Tommy Rees on being named Starting QB at Notre Dame! Only needed one kid to get booted off the team and the other to transfer. — Matt Dudas (@mdudas8) June 6, 2013 Tommy Rees as the ND starting QB next year….Wonderful…The season is over before it even started — Lisa Cool (@lisa_marie8) June 6, 2013 I hate tommy rees… — Billy Kern (@wkern08) June 6, 2013 Contemplating a way to injure tommy Rees, looks like ill need @a_disanto to assist — Briam Morris (@briaM7morris) June 6, 2013 brian kelly is an idiot if he starts tommy rees over andrew hendrix, i dont care if hendrix is inexperienced or not, he’s just better — Alec Gatto (@AlecGatto52) June 6, 2013 @college_fb Tommy Interception Never Cover the Spread Rees. The Golden Domers back to the mide of the pack in 13-14. — RandlPinkFloyd (@RandlPinkFloyd) June 6, 2013 Tommy Rees — Maps (@MaxicoBurress) June 6, 2013  I can’t take another year of Tommy Rees at QB. My head will explode. — Matthew (@koressme_plz) June 6, 2013
