Personally, I have seen less media hyperventilating over Ebola outbreaks and Hamas suicide bombings…
Apparently, the unusually heavy amount of snow was too much for some fans to resist, and dozens of college students started launching snowballs at each other, as well as Badgers cheerleaders and officials on the field.
“Wisconsin’s student section is apparently bored enough by the game that there’s a snowball fight breaking out over there,” Jesse Temple, a Wisconsin Badgers reporter, who gives analysis on football news and updates for ESPN, tweeted.
Just a short while after Temple sent out the above tweet, he followed it up with another tweet saying the fans had started directing their snowball fury at the Badgers cheerleaders and football staff.
“Holy smokes. Students look like they’re now aiming all their snowballs at the UW cheerleaders behind the end zone. What’s wrong with people?” Temple tweeted.
Temple also posted a short video of the chaotic scene and the footage shows Badgers cheerleaders leaving the field as fans continue to unleash their snowball fury upon them.
As reported by Sports Illustrated, Badgers fans began throwing snowballs at each other in the second quarter. A short while later, they started directing their onslaught at cheerleaders, who were then forced to exit the field. However, during the second half of the game, they returned but stood on Wisconsin’s sideline instead of behind the endzone.
The snowball fight upset campus police and forced University officials to take action.
