    I thought Huggy’s players only punched police horses.

    If he's a valuable player probably only until they play UK.

    If true I wouldn't blame the player. You put out a lot of emotion when you compete. If I'm in the middle of processing a loss and chaos was around I'd want to knock the crap out of someone too. Especially some young college dork who is probably saying stupid stuff and acting happy.

    He did, but nothing will happen, because fans were on the floor where they didn’t belong.

    Not a big deal. I wouldn't blame a player for KO'ing some frat boy that got in his face after a bad loss. Remember the Kenan Thompson lookalike trying to antagonize Aaron Harrison? Antigua might've saved that dude a serious beatdown.

    I don't blame the players. Fans don't belong on the playing surface in any sport. I cringe when we do it in football and that's even somewhat less dangerous because of the extra space.

    Storming the court is bush league, dangerous and just asking for something like this or much, much worse to happen one of these days.

    I don’t have a problem with the WVU player. I’ve said for years how to put an end to all of this storming the court by fans.

    I don't mind storming the court but let the players get off the court before the fans get on the court..I don't know the perfect plan how to do that but that would solve the situations like yesterday..

    I am surprised it does not happen more..If I had been a UK player I would have punched about 100 in Bloomington a few year ago.

    Court storming should be banned. It's stupid and dangerous. Texas tech was favored for crying out loud. Embarrassing for their fans.

    That was no where no how a push. Dude a swing and hit the fan in the head.



    Looks another player threw some punches at the end of the video too.

    The kids shouldn't be on the court... but they were not pulling the in-your-face, like the AH situation. Huggie's players should be suspended... especially the 2nd puncher, who left the line to go after someone.

    We can barely beat a 6-10 Vandy team on the road. Hope you're right but don't get your hopes up.

    I can't even imagine how miserably pathetic a program has to be before they storm the court after beating West Virginia. I don't even mean to insult West Virginia, but still, that's truly, unbelievably pathetic. Next up, rushing the court after beating ETSU.

    And I say that with full expectation that WV beats us.

    They have never been favored so they didn't know.

    If I were a player and lost after giving all I had and some punk ran on the floor and yelled or got in my face. He is getting his ass kicked. They need to stop this storming the floor crap.

    It doesn’t look like the fan did anything to the player. It looks like the fan was just running out there and accidentally bumped into him in this case.

    Now in the case of the Aaron Harrison incident, the fan deserved to get his teeth knocked out.

    Still don't put much blame on the player. Fan shouldn't have said nothing to the player. They just lost a hard fought game and I'm sure he was pissed.

    There is no way in hell that you could determine that it 'was a punch' from that 'Where's Waldo' video. But if it WAS a punch, he isn't much of a fighter, because the guy who nearly lost his hat continued walking and jumping up and down.

    You get on the court, you deserve to have your clock cleaned. You get near a player from the other side, screaming and yelling and I think the player has a 'reasonable expectation of physical injury. Intentionally putting another person in reasonable apprehension of an imminent harmful or offensive contact. Intent to cause physical injury is not required, and physical injury does not need to result.' Self-defense to chuck one at his face.

    This is the reason Cal stopped the series with IU. No punches thrown but IU acted like they had never been there before. Need more security to protect all. I do think the West Virginia player threw an unprovoked punch.

    At Arkansas Arron Harrison used a lot of self control with the psycho AR. fan as coach Antigua trying to get between them.

    I'm afraid sometime somewhere someone is going to get hurt really bad.

    Reasonable injury? He hit the fan in the side or back of the fan's head (as the fan was running PAST him)
    Maybe that fan called his mother a name as he ran by and deserved it...
    but don't make up shit to fit your view. And trying to use legal definitions to invalidate video evidence may not be a great defense. Just sayin

    You are stupid enough to rush the floor and say something to an opposing player you deserve to get punched.
