I'm told from some who witnessed the event that it has been a tad overblown, but it led to one of the greatest quotes of all-time so it must be addressed.
Apparently tensions rose between Louisville and Southern Miss players during yesterday's dance competition (dominated by Titus Le'fiasco Teague) to the point where armed Florida Highway Patrol officers had to show up and intervene. Both teams boarded their respective buses and later events were canceled.
OK, here we go...
"They started talking trash about us being in Conference USA, [that] we can't dance… it was stupid. We'll do our talking on the field," uttered one Golden Eagle who refused to be identified. "A friendly dance competition and they take it all serious? It's ridiculous."
BYU pulled the same shit on us in '01.
Leading the charge for the Louisville players, apparently, was linebacker Dexter Heyman.
"Someone said something disrespectful, did a little jawing after the dance contest… it's all good," said Heyman. "It's just a little too close to game time, ya know?"
The big loser in all of this is Tim High, who was stripped of his shining moment in the belly-flop competition.
The players reportedly socialized at a dinner event later that evening without issue.
What do we take away from all of this? Two things: 1) Tomorrow night's game just got a little bit more fun. 2) Titus Teague is the Butters Stotch of Louisville football. He has ridiculously awesome dance moves, but shit gets crazy when he unleashes them upon the world.
