Everyone here is passionate about the Pacers or we wouldn't be here. BUT what get's into people sometimes?
LSU fans out of control?
Tennessee's visit to LSU on Monday night ended with a 30-27 overtime victory over the Tigers. The Volunteers' night started with a rude welcome as at least one of the team buses was shoved by LSU fans and bottles thrown at its windows, Tennessee and LSU officials said, according to THE ADVOCATE.
According to LSU and Tennessee officials and police accounts, the four buses carrying the Tennessee team and official party stopped behind the LSU team buses on North Stadium Drive near Tiger Stadium.
"The visiting team's buses never stop," said Herb Vincent, LSU associate athletic director for external affairs. "Unfortunately they were among some fans who started acting badly."
Tennessee Athletic Director Mike Hamilton said the traffic flow of the buses was not normal. His understanding was their buses got there at the same time as LSU's buses, causing the caravan to get held up.
The last of Tennessee's four buses had bottles thrown at it and three windows were cracked, although there was no glass on any of the seats, Hamilton said. He said his bus contained athletic department staff and cheerleaders, but no players.
