Conference USA fined East Carolina $10,000 for allowing fans to storm the field after their upset win over West Virginia a little over a week ago. The message? Do a more thorough job of beating your fans, ECU.
A state agency is investigating the police action taken after the game, when literally thousands of people descended upon the playing surface and a lucky few ended up with a baton upside their head. Apparently, the agency has been asked to decide whether or not police used “excessive force” in dealing with the jubilant fans. Yeah, I think celebrating a win with your team on the field and doing something that millions of people have done over the years and doesn’t really hurt anyone else warrants four or five punches in the face.
