  “Who brings a golf ball to a football game?” SECN announcers have questions after Tennessee fans throw trash, hit Lane Kiffin One of the stranger incidences in college football in some time came near the end of the No. 13 Ole Miss Rebels’ road game against the Tennessee Volunteers Saturday. Late in that game, with Ole Miss up 31-26, Tennessee came up just short on a 4th and 24 conversion; they got close on a pass Read more The post “Who brings a golf ball to a football game?” SECN announcers have questions after Tennessee fans throw trash, hit Lane Kiffin appeared first on Awful Announcing.

In a Friday appearance on “The Paul Finebaum Show,” Kiffin recounted the experience and humorously remarked that he didn’t feel particularly protected by the police on duty.

“Players keep your helmets on and I kind of moved about five yards off the sidelines,” Kiffin said he told Ole Miss players, via Erik Hall of the Mississippi Clarion Ledger. “There were some cops behind me, which by the way, they didn’t do a very good job.

“Because when I was walking off, I had the cops that are supposed to protect you. They throw a bottle. The cops duck, and I grab the bottle. So I was kind of down on our cops.”

Video more or less supports Kiffin’s assertion. He actually reaches up and grabs the bottle as the officers flinch.

Kiffin says it all with good humor. He’s been making light of the situation all week, as he typically does. It probably just bothers his detractors even more.
