Dak Prescott responds to SportsCenter social media troll

The Dallas Cowboys have become a punchline for their lack of playoff success in the past 25 years. The team’s starting quarterbacks always get heat on social media, and Dak Prescott is all too familiar with it.

SportsCenter posted a tweet from NFL memes on Instagram that highlighted NFC Championship appearance games since 1997. It showed none for the Dallas Cowboys, and one for Tom Brady, who is in his first season in the conference with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Prescott, who missed all but five games this season due to an ankle injury suffered in Week 5 against the New York Giants, made sure to get his word in:

KWC has scoring in 86-72 win over Lake Erie | Sports

KWC beat Lake Erie 86-72 with four Panthers scoring in double figures and different players getting hot throughout the game at the Sportscenter.

Jamil Wilson led the way with 24 points and five assists. Wilson made 8-of-12 from the floor and 7-of-11 free throws.

“Jamil Wilson was tremendous in Tre’s absence,” KWC coach Drew Cooper said. “He had very timely bursts of effort defensively.”

Cobbs has been working through a recurring hand injury that flared up before Wednesday’s practice.

News Highlights: ESPN features Texas Tech’s Crazy Finish v LSU [Watch]

Scott Van Pelt is one of the last major sports anchors on TV. A connection to the heyday of ESPN and SportsCenter when it was TV you must see.

Today, SVP hosts a pm segment of SportsCenter and has a wildly popular segment called Bad Beats. The segment will go through sports betting scenarios that look like they are going one way, then quickly going the other way.

The Red Raiders were part of the Monday night segment with Van Pelt highlighting the Texas Tech-LSU match in which the Red Raiders went from seven to five with just over a minute left. More painful for gamblers than just the great comeback is that LSU also failed to cover the spread after a brutal foul call with less than two seconds left.

Van Pelt’s co-host couldn’t believe the referees even
