Football fanatics often use Twitter to announce how many days remain until the football season kicks off. It keeps things fun and reminds us all that while we are still far away, we are still oh so close from seeing the action begin.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy is one of those who often lets his Twitter followers know exactly how many days are left until the season arrives. On June 9, we were only 83 days away from kickoff. So, Gundy decided to attach a picture of former wide receiver Colton Chelf, who happened to wear the No. 83 (h/t Coaching Search).

83 Days Until Kickoff! Big time play in a #BCS classic. #BeACowboy twitter.com/CoachGundy/sta…

Harmless tweet, right?

We can't say the same for Oklahoma.

The Sooners football Twitter account discovered that the season was 83 days away and decided to become the ultimate troll, using the number as more of a shot towards its in-state rival.

83 days until #ItsFootballTimeinOklahoma! OU has defeated Oklahoma State 83 times, its most wins against any school.

That one hit where it hurts. Somebody needs to tell whoever runs the account that these aren't supposed to be so aggressive.

Not only has Oklahoma dominated the Cowboys in the all-time series, but the Sooners have also won nine of the last 10, including a three-point victory last season. Since 1999, Oklahoma State has only won three games in the yearly rivalry against Oklahoma. Still, even with the facts in place, this little jab came out of left field and certainly will build a little more hype for this year's upcoming matchup.

These two schools will square off once again on December 7 and it should be one of the marquee games in the Big 12. Both are two of the top teams in the conference, and the winner will play a critical role in deciding who wins it.

We are only 82 days away from kickoff.
