Western Kentucky Was Too Fired Up To Make It Through The Tunnel

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers were so damn fired up for their first game of the season, they had some trouble making it through the tunnel. Check out a video of their blunder below.

And because Chappelle’s Show taught us that virtually everything is better in slow motion, here’s another version of the clip.

This entrance was…not ideal. https://t.co/GTqIZ8B2Xn

I guess there was a little bit too much adrenaline flowing through the Hilltoppers’ veins on Thursday night. The mere thought of vanquishing their foe turned a group of finely-tuned athletic machines into uncoordinated goons. I can’t really blame them, though. After all, it was their first game of the season, and it was in front of their home crowd. If that doesn’t get your juices flowing, then you need to check your pulse.

Thankfully, this embarrassing gaffe wasn’t a sign of trouble to come for the Hilltoppers, as they went on to spank Rice 46-14. Maybe they literally stumbled on their new pregame ritual? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The hell with an aesthetically pleasing entrance, just win, baby!
