Thursday night during the first half of the UCSB vs. Hawaii game, A UC Santa Barbara fan sprinted down a flight of stairs, ran onto the court and made a beeline for Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold. Only after Hawaii players shoved him away did the fan retreat back toward the stands, still challenging the players to fight as he back-pedaled.
"I've never seen anything like that in 22 years of coaching and a lot of years of playing," Arnold told Kara Lawson on ESPNU after the game. "It was a little crazy having a fan running and pushing your guys around on the game floor like that. Never seen it. You don't really expect it. A little different."
Here's the video-
The ESPN anchors go off on this fan, calling for him to be banned from any sporting event and also kicked out of school.
'There is no reason for a fan to run on the floor'...'If I was there, I would have speared him'
