"One of the greatest traditions in college sports."

When you think of the "greatest traditions" in college sports, there aren't many people that think of a tiny NAIA school in the middle of Arkansas. But these fans are passionate about their toilet paper. Every year, the fans litter the court with toilet paper after the John Brown University basketball team scores its first basket of the season in the first home game. The action results in a technical called against the Golden Eagles, but the coach is on board with the tradition, saying "What our players look forward to and what I look forward to is a lot of energy and excitement from the fans. It's just a fun, fun night. I think it's one of the greatest traditions in college sports." Click here for the story and a video of the TP toss.
