We’ll probably never know the cause of this dispute between an Alabama fan and an Oklahoma student during last night’s Sugar Bowl, but the moment when the woman evades her restrainer and takes a swan dive into the seats — perfectly synced to Seven Nation Army – is a strong early entrant for 2014′s version of this list.
UPDATE: Turns out, we learned what caused this fracas. The student who got jumped is Oklahoma junior Michael Connolly, and he provided Extra Mustard with some context:
It was toward the end of the third quarter. My friends and I were sitting in the aisle of the Oklahoma section that directly bordered Alabama fans, so we were technically in different sections than the woman but really just a few rows ahead of her. She was the only one standing up in the Alabama section at that point, because the rest of the fans were so pissed off that they were losing.
She was also sitting with her two young daughters, who were little blonde girls. Her teenaged old son was sitting about five seats away from them.
At the beginning of the game, they were kind of talking s—. They did an “SEC” chant right after the first touchdown of the game, and we all thought we were screwed at that point. So once we started winning, they shut their mouths and my crew of 6-10 people just started talking a lottttt of s—, specifically me and my friend who you can see waving the towel in the background of the video.
At one point she went up to get a beer, and was kind of talking s— to us when she got back. She just kept flicking us off and stuff during the game. A few times, my friend yelled in the direction of her group of ‘Bama fans, “I yell ‘Roll Tide’ when I eff my cousin,” but since she was the only one standing it seemed like it was directed only at her.
Eventually her son, who weighs about 120 pounds, told us to come up and fight him. We were like, “No, come down here.”
That was when the woman came down and the video started. She was screaming at me, and sticking her tongue out at me so I asked, “Are you trying to make out with me?” And my friend was yelling “Kiss her! Kiss her!”
That’s when she walked away, and then jumped me. When she kicked me, it left giant boot marks on my shirt. I’m not sure if the guy restraining her was her husband or not—they weren’t sitting right next to each other—but she was kicked out of the game and her two daughters were crying.
On reflection, maybe it was better not knowing the context.
In an additional update, Clif Sims at YellowHammer.com caught up with the woman, Stillwater, Ala. resident Michelle Prichett. She went over some similar details, but claimed that she made the fateful dive after one of the OU students called her a “stupid b—-.”
After admitting that “What I did was probably not the thing to do”, Ms. Prichett offered a heartfelt apology to the man whom she felt was most adversely affected by this ordeal: the questioned-by-reporters Nick Saban.
