    Default Fans Rush Court - Involved in Fight w/ Players

    This story is disturbing and relevant to us given the recent discussion/concern with fans rushing the court against Arizona.

    Damn chucking the ball at an opponent like that = beatdown on the playground.

    The NCAA doesn't care about stampedes by emotional sports fans in enclosed spaces. No safety problem there.

    The fans were already rushing the court, i dont think they were rushing the court to attack a player, it just happened 2 seperate events collided.

    Event 1: Player chucks ball at opposing player - Players get pissed
    Event 2: Crowd is rushing court

    You can actually see SEVERAL of the fans trying to defuse the situation.

    There will always be a few bad eggs.

    Both players and fans should be punished with suspensions and bans.

    I would ban the students, suspend the players, and that is all. Take away rushing the court for safety issues? Sack up, players know better to gtfo of there.

    I wish the Bhullar brothers had thrown some punches at the stupid fans. Those guys would break the little white Utah students.

    Why even think about storming the court? Your team won a home game while tied for 1st place...

    Why does skin color matter in this situation (or in any for that matter). Everything else in your post was good/funny except that part.

    Pet Peeve of mine is when people use skin color in a negative way.

    You sure know how to twist words into a race debate, Stephan A. Smith.

    No racism intended...just pointing out that they were "Students from Orem" (yes, the city in Utah that is 90% white) who would likely be vulnerable in a fight.

    Now that you mention it, I did find ONE student that was not white. Good call.

    Anyway...the SEC's rule needs to be enforced throughout the NCAA. Rushing the court can be dangerous & is completely unnecessary. Fining the schools won't keep 100% of the kids off the court, yet it will absolutely increase the level of security in most arenas.

    Uhhh, I'm not the one that brought race up bud. I merely commented on someone else's post regarding race not mattering. I for one could give two ****s about what color a guy was that threw a ball at another guy. I was merely pointing out that in today's society within America, race will always be a part of the dialogue. Guaranteed that on First Take today somehow race was brought up in this discussion due to the fact that most of the players on the court were black and most of the folks rushing the court were white. Is it right or wrong? No, it's plain stupid, but welcome to 'Merica. Good day.

    Well I mean, it probably can't be discounted. The fans were probably aware. This is a very white, religious community. They probably took notice that it was a black player who disrespected (for lack of a better term), their white player.

    I would've thought this kind of fan-player race war would happen in the SEC or other deep South conferences, but not anywhere else, not even in Utah. Wouldn't be surprised if there was anti-Mormon motivation underlying this incident.

    Of course! Otherwise, how the heck would we know what level of SPF to get when we buy our sunblock!


    Related note, Paula Deen:

    Deen says, "I'm fighting to get my name back," adding, "I feel like 'embattled' or 'disgraced' will always follow my name. It's like that black football player who recently came out," says Deen, referring to NFL prospect Michael Sam. "He said, 'I just want to be known as a football player. I don't want to be known as a gay football player.' I know exactly what he's saying."
    Thanks Paula for pointing out the "black" gay football player who recently came out - so we can better differentiate him from all the other races of football players who came out as openly gay this week.

    Also poor Paula, so persecuted, only just give $75 million by an Arizona investor to open a new restaurant in Tennessee. Such hardship.

    Totally agree that the right fan got punched. That kid deserved it for the sucker punch he delivered on 25's teammate.

    But I have to quote Puff Daddy about that punch from 25: Sucker move, for that you don't get no props.

Had he walked up like a man and punched that guy he could have done a lot better than he did. That kid deserved it for the sucker punch he delivered on 25's teammate.
    Anyone notice the security guard right in front of 25 just getting thrown around like a rag doll? Is that a guy or a gal?

    Not sure how I twisted your words into a race debate? Actually I used your words verbatim, no twisting needed. You were the one that noticed the color, white, of the students there. I didn't notice/care while watching the video until I read your comment.

    Stephan A. Smith will take an event (like storming the court) that has nothing to do with race and inject race (by pointing out skin color of participants) into it... Come to think of it he does exactly what you did.

    You also did it again and probably did not even realize it, when you implied that because they are white they must be vulnerable. I do not know what the make-up of a city has to do with anything.

    Honestly, I just wanted to point out that EVERYTHING you originally said was good except for pointing out skin color. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Does anybody know if Ross-Miller and the guy he threw the ball at were jawing before that happened? Did he seriously just throw it at the guy because his team lost?

    Utah has a large contingency of native americans, hence the Utes nickname. I didn't bring it up because it wasn't that odd to be real honest.

    i've watched 2 different highlights of this and I do believe there was something escalating between the two.
