Honestly, this is a joke of a punishment and shouldn’t be treated as anything other than that. Tennessee probably has $250,000 under a random couch cushion.
They’re not even going to notice it’s missing.

If we want to treat this situation seriously, then someone is going to have to actually drop the hammer. You can’t have morons throwing stuff at coaches, players and cheerleaders.
Imagine if someone had thrown something heavy enough to hurt a person. Trust me, at that point, a $250,000 fine would be the least of Tennessee’s concerns.
This is banana land!!! The cheerleaders aren’t safe! pic.twitter.com/vatMpZWymU

Shape up, SEC. This nonsense can’t be tolerated. Us civilized folks in the B1G would never tolerate this garbage!
