Alabama Mom Attacks Oklahoma Student at GameBy: Erika Watts - January 3, 2014
If you thought the jump by Michigan State’s Kyler Elsworth to stop Stanford near the end of the Rose Bowl was impressive, wait until you see the leap this Alabama mom made during an attack on an Oklahoma student. While it’s certainly not unheard of for fights to break out at football games, it’s not every day that you see a mom take on a male student. Someone took a video of the altercation and you can see a lot of trash talking going on before the mom makes her leap.
According to Michael Connolly, the Oklahoma student that was the target of the woman’s attack, the woman and her family had been exchanging insults with his group throughout the Sugar Bowl. Fans of opposing teams often talk a lot of trash, and as you can see from the above video, something one of the guys said really set the mom off.
After the woman began chewing out Connolly, an unidentified male tried to remove her from the situation. As soon as the male turned his back to the mom, she jumped into the Oklahoma group and began doling out punches and kicks. The woman was eventually restrained and taken away by security.
Connolly gave Sports Illustrated his side of how things went down. Read excerpts of his take below.
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.
Yikes. Connolly also notes that the woman had two little girls with her that saw everything go down and that they were crying. Check out some of the posts Connolly made on Twitter following the altercation:
