UCSB Fan Runs Onto Court, Yells at Coach: A fan wearing a "UCSB Class of 2014" T-shirt ran onto the court and screamed at Hawaii coach Gib Arnold during a stoppage in play at Thursday night's game against UC-Santa Barbara. "I'm so embarrassed by that kid," UCSB coach Bob Williams said. "This kid had no right to be on the floor. He was an idiot." The fan was arrested by campus police.

What the what? Such a tough guy (said in a heavy Chicago accent)

I like how he combined "come on and fight!" and backing up into one contradictory gesture.

I think you're making a huge and incorrect assumption there. In my experience as a lip reader, which is every bit as extensive as my experience as a basketball coach, it is completely clear to me that the young man was inviting Arnold and his players to a halftime kegger at his house just outside of the arena.

Yet another example of my own hypocrisy: I would have love to seen that kid tased.
