Not quite Auburn Palace

We know this happened a few days ago...but we couldn't forgive ourselves if we didn't mention the brawl that broke out after the Memphis vs. UAB game this past Saturday. The picture below is mesmerizing for many reasons, not the least of which is a kid in a sleeveless orange hunting shirt getting slapped in the face by a disembodied hand of some Memphis player (right side of pic). Other sites have entertaining break-downs, but we here at "Made 'Em Jump like Rod Strickland" are fascinated for an entirely personal reason....

The namesake of this blog, the great Mr. Rod Strickland happened to be involved. I know what your thinking: "but I don't see Chico DeBarge anywhere in the crowd!" That dear readers, is exactly why this picture is so fascinating to us: Rod is nowhere to be found. By all accounts he acted as a peace maker during the fracas. We attribute his apparent placid nature to a full stomach of half-smokes and a rasta-sized blizzies.

...Guaranteed to make 'em jump like Rod Strickland. One.
