I watched Vanderbilt upset newly minted number one Tennessee last night. The Commodores outplayed the Vols and deserved the victory on their home court. Vandy stud Shan Foster is a baller.
My problem was with the Vandy student body and their lack of a celebration afterwards on the court. They allowed 10 rent a cops stop a potential student party mob of a thousand. This is the ESPN highlights of the game and pay attention to the student section.
Here is the another post game video and notice the low number of cops with their weak barricade.
Vandy just beat the number one team in the country, an in state rival, and this is how the students celebrate? Lame.
College fans are usually criticized for unjustly spilling on to the court when a victory does not warrant such outward revelry. Not the other way around.
There is a reason that two of the best college hoops blogs are called Storming the Floor and Rush the Court.
Take note Vandy fan, this is how a student body storms the court after defeating a highly ranked team at home. Oklahoma State beat number 5 KU in Stillwater on Saturday and mayhem ensues immediately.
My favorite part is the long haired dude in an Okie State jersey with his hat on backwards, sprinting to half court and trying the chest jump bump on a Cowboys player. Awesome
Jeff Spicoli would have been proud.
The Sporting Blog saw the same weak celebratory effort out of the Commodores.
UPDATE: The Big Lead has a link to an article referring to Vanderbilt getting fined 2 times for their fans rushing onto the court. Still Very Lame.
