I'm in this crowd somewhere.
It was 2010, after the Badgers football team upset top-ranked Ohio State. Was it fun? You bet. Was it safe? Absolutely not.
When Kansas State's men's basketball team upset Kansas last night, they stormed the court. Jayhawks coach Bill Self gets it, but he wasn't thrilled.
Here are his comments, via WaPo:
“I wasn’t nervous for me,” Self said afterward. “There were several students that hit our players — not saying like with fists, but when you storm the court, you run in, you bump everybody, stuff like that. This has got to stop.
“Court storming is fine, but surely, you can get security to the point where player safety is not involved like it is over here. The last several times they’ve won, they’ve stormed the court on us. That’s disappointing that that happened again, but we also allowed it to happen again by not playing well.
I agree with everything he said here. Especially with the bigger point about player safety. It's not a problem until it's a problem.
