"Boom baby! Yeah! Come on!"
Those are the famous words that put PGA Tour player Jeff Overton on the map during a match at the 2010 Ryder Cup after he holed a shot for eagle:
So, yeah, he's an intense dude.
His enthusiasm isn't just for golf, however. Overton LOVES his Indiana Hoosiers... maybe a little too much.
Overton was reportedly removed by security during Indiana's 94-74 loss to Louisville at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night in the Jimmy V Classic.
Golf Digest picked up this tweet by Rivals.com reporter Jeff Rabjohns, who was covering the game, midway through the first half:
It's still unclear why Overton was ejected, but the golfer seemed to confirm it via his own Twitter account:
Not long after, Overton removed the tweet.
GolfNewsNet.com reminds us this isn't the first time Overton has had a run-in at an IU game:
Three years ago, Overton faced legal problems related to his behavior after an on-campus Hoosiers game. 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.
Bottom line: It's OK to be a passionate fan, but it's not a good look to be getting yourself tossed from games you're not even playing in.
