“one of the officials got in their way at their makeshift tunnel”
This is apparently something Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College has been doing for a couple of years now.
FOX News reports:
College football team gets blocked from bringing chainsaw onto the field
A college football team was blocked from entering the field before their game got started Thursday night.
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College was about to hit the gridiron to prepare for their game against Jones College when one of the officials got in their way at their makeshift tunnel.
MGCCC defensive tackle Brian Merritt was holding a chainsaw at their inflatable tunnel and before the team could take the field the official came over and said that he couldn’t run onto the field with the item, according to the Sun Herald.
“One of us has been doing this 30 years and haven’t seen something like that,” one referee said.
The newspaper noted that the school had been taking the chainsaw onto the field before games for the last two years.
The referees at MGCCC vs Jones wouldn’t let the Bulldogs bring our their chainsaw. ?
“Y’all can’t bring that out here”
I asked the refs about it right before the coin toss.
