Akron's Brian Walsh was not impressed with Ohio's performance last night against Belmont. Reggie Keely was not impressed with Brian Walsh.

Like the rest of us watching Belmont take on Ohio, Brian Walsh was not impressed with Ohio's performance and took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>What is OU doing? They're letting Belmont speed them up &amp; they look like frantic lil boys out there smh</p>&mdash; Brian Walsh (@B_Walsh2) <a href="https://twitter.com/B_Walsh2/status/305536872178937856">February 24, 2013</a></blockquote>

While I don't think this was intended as some sort of rivalry trash talk and more of an observation, Brian Walsh is certainly not going to win any Bobcat fans by calling them frantic little boys.

Following the 82-61 loss to Belmont, Reggie Keely wasted no time reflecting on the loss and calling out Brian Walsh.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Gotta keep it movin... Doesn't get any easier! Big one on Wednesday for the cookies! And Brian Walsh is a JOKE!

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>0-3 fg 2 point 26 mins and frosted tips... I'm sorry tweeple for flooding your timeline with this nonsense.

6th grade me can verify that claiming someone frosts their tips is a very serious accusation and one that Brian Walsh probably does not take lightly. 6th grade me can also verify they do in fact do that at Super Cuts.

There was definitely a lot of frustration coming out from Keely as the Bobcats did not show up against a good Belmont team. As for Brian Walsh, he has not responded at this point and it remains to be seen if he will even play Wednesday night as he sat out Friday's game against ND St.

The Akron fans were not too pleased with Reggie Keely and let it be known in his Twitter mentions. Reggie Keely had more words for them this morning.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Undefeated in the Mac finals, Jar record for rebounds (20) 6-3 over 4 years... I would hate me too</p>&mdash; Reggie keely jr (@BiG_ReG30) <a href="https://twitter.com/BiG_ReG30/status/305748181109587969">February 24, 2013</a></blockquote>

Emotions are already high and they will only get higher come Wednesday night in Athens.
