PGA golfer Jeff Overton got thrown out of the Indiana/Louisville game last night

PGA golfer Jeff Overton is an Indiana alum and loves him some Hoosiers. He loves them so much he went to the Indiana/Louisville game last night and had to be kicked out when he got a little too boisterous. Overton sent this tweet during the game, which has since been deleted:

This isn’t the first time Overton has acted up over his Hoosiers. When Indiana beat Kentucky in December 11, he was arrested on three misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct. From GolfNewsNet.com:

After the IU-Kentucky game in Bloomington on Dec. 14, 2011, Overton was arrested on three misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Earlier in the day, Overton appeared at the game against Kentucky to present a $50,000 check to the university. Early the next morning, Overton was in the passenger seat of a limo, yelling at people outside the vehicle at 3 a.m. Bloomington police pulled the limo over. Overton, who police said he was “belligerent,” refused to provide his identification or step out of the vehicle. Police extricated Overton from the car and arrested him. Overton felt he was mistreated by police.

Just another proud graduate of the University of Indiana.

    Normally I would say that UK has its fair share of poorly-behaved alumni and that our fans sometimes act like jerks, but it is different when it comes to IU.

    This is precisely what the world has come to expect from IU fans and alumni.

    Perhaps Overton is diversifying via a side career in Rap by developing a persona wherein arrests and jail time fulfill screet cred elements of the rap manual.

    Couple things on this –

    1) Can’t argue with the tweet – Cards get away with hacking all the way up the court in the name of “tough full court press”

    2) Hate it for the guy that he got arrested for “riding around” being belligerent. You have to really be causing a ruckus to get picked up for being drunk when you have a DD driving you around.

    Without UK, IU is slowly disappearing. IU has always needed UK to be relevant.

    Guy might be a belligerent drunk and an iu fan, but even with his beer goggles he can see that ul cheats like no other.

    He’s right. UL won a championship based completely on fouling so often the refs can’t possibly call them all.

    On this topic, what a surprise and Indiana fan acts like a complete moron in December. #sarcasm

    This fouling as much as possible with the assumption the refs won’t call them isn’t new for Pitino. He did it at UK too.

    It is really sad how the once mighty IU has to lobby through DICK the most appropriately named man in the world. If IU really is as relevant as they want to believe then why do they care so much about playing us home and home? They were given the opportunity to play us in their own state for a few years in a row. Fact is UK is scheduling lots of relevant teams outside of the SEC. They don’t have any need or anything to gain by scheduling the not relevant since Bobby Knight IU.

    Here’s hoping the arrogant SOB never sinks another putt or makes another PGA cut.

    Yeah he may act up a little but he is right about the cards.

    Bloomington police are notorious for profiling the PGA’ers.
