This is absolutely wild.

Eastern Michigan was horrendous in a 59-10 blowout defeat Saturday to South Alabama, showing no will and no fight throughout the 68 Ventures Bowl … well, until the very end after they already suffered an embarrassing whoopin’.

Celebrating their bowl championship and singing along with their band’s playing after the game, the Jaguars were lined up on the field of Mobile, Alabama’s Hancock Stadium. And while the team and fans were trying to enjoy the moment, Eastern Michigan defensive back Korey Hernandez ran from behind them and blasted South Alabama defensive back Jamarrien Burt with a power sucker-punch. Hernandez was with his teammates.

In response, several South Alabama players swirled around Burt to beat the brakes off him, which they did. Soon, other Eagles players ran out to defend their teammate. From there, a gargantuan brawl broke out.


Oh man, this is insane, but what I wanna know is how on earth did this get sparked up?

I get that Eastern Michigan got blown out, but you’re still at a bowl game and was given what I’m sure was a pretty flashy gift bag for being in it (I know how those things are). So with your brand new PlayStation 5 and Jordan sneakers back at your five-star hotel, what could possess you to be this angry?

What, because you lost? So never mind your career too and potential NIL opportunities in the future? (RELATED: Florida State Reportedly Expected To Begin Process Of Leaving ACC)

Dumbass, just a straight up dumbass.
