The rivalry between Alabama and Tennessee fans took a terrible turn on both ends after the Vols’ victory Saturday night over the Crimson Tide.
We are all aware of what the Alabama WR did by striking a female fan on the field, but there was an even worse incident that happened from the Tennessee side. Former Alabama running back Kerry Goode who played for the Crimson Tide during the 1980s, was reportedly harassed by Volunteer fans.
Goode, who is in a wheelchair suffering from ALS, relayed the story on his Facebook page.
“I don’t advocate violence but I had someone threw their drink all over me at the end of the game. I don’t know if it was meant for me or my family because we were sitting in the Tennessee section with Bama gear on. But the tickets were compliments of my son Roman who’s the Tennessee staff. A big “Thank You” to the usher who escorted us out.
I will say this about that … ” I ain’t always been saved!”
Goode was in Neyland Stadium supporting his son Roman — a member of the Tennessee staff.
Goode logged 1,350 yards and six rushing touchdowns during his time with the Crimson Tide from 1983-87.
No statement has been released from either team at this time.
