What was supposed to be a beautiful game of college football ended on a vitriolic note after the fans intervened in the game to impose an ugly side of theirs and started taking things to a different level, all for the wrong reasons. As the game between Tennessee and Ole Miss Rebels ended in the latter’s favour with the scoreline reading 31-26, presumably the Tennessee fans were absolutely livid with the development.
As the game progressed slickly with both the teams dishing out a gilt-edged brand of football, the aggression from a few obnoxious fans reared its ugly head as Tennessee slowly fell into the lap of defeat. They started throwing trash at the players and the coaches and the incident unfolded to such an extent that the Rebels had to vacate the field to ensure their own safety.
The chaos that engulfed between Ole Miss Rebels And Tennesse
To make matters worse for the game, one of the enraged Tennessee fans (presumably) threw a golf ball at the erstwhile Tennessee gaffer, Lane Kiffin. Kiffin has currently shifted his allegiance to the Rebels and as a matter of fact, led them to a stunning victory over his former team. The ball caught Kiffin on his right elbow and given the impact that a golf ball can create, it was clearly evident that he was saved by a whisker.
Sadly, for Kiffin, the public outrage didn’t simply end with the golf ball as he found himself at the receiving end of a water bottle that came flying from the audience. Kiffin, on the contrary, was calm as ever as he managed to catch the water bottle and as a return gift for the audience, he threw his visor back to them. When the world has always looked for fighting violence with violence, Kiffin paved the way for non-violence, showing it to the world that how it is done.
