UCLA football streaker, consider yourself lucky

Whoever said that UCLA football is on a boring streak may have missed Thursday’s game.

A man dressed in a referee’s shirt sprinted across the field in Tucson while attempting to disrobe. During the mayhem, a shoving match erupted at midfield between UCLA wide receivers Randall Carroll, Taylor Embree and Shaq Evans and Arizona defensive backs Shaq Richardson, Marquis Flowers and Jourdon Grandon. A bench-clearing brawl ensued.


Talk about foul play.

I’m not sure why a fan would think it would be a good idea to annoy lightning-fast athletes. In the ‘referee’ gone wild case, he escaped unscathed -- but some other streakers haven’t been so lucky.

Perhaps it’s a good thing that the Bruins and Wildcats didn’t try to pull a Beckham and tackle the incognito referee. After all, they could’ve accidentally (or purposely) attacked the wrong one.
