Scout.com has this story from Josh Kendall. After UT's win over Georgia on Saturday, the Vol basketball players went into the stands at Stegeman Coliseum to celebrate with their fans. UT Athletic Director and basketball coach admit that it was a mistake, and they have apologized to Georgia.
Damon Evans, athletic director at Georgia, and Mike Hamilton have both handled this situation with a great deal of class and restraint. Without the normal posturing and chest thumping from these types of things.
The facts are it was dangerous and stupid to send players into the fans at a visiting stadium. But the apology was a nice gesture.
Although, I can't help but ask....why such a gesture when you just beat a team with a 4-6 record? Wouldn't you save a stunt like that for a win over UK, LSU or UF?
