  • Florida Gators’ shoe-tosser joins long list of coaches and players who threw things in games

Jeremy WillisPN.com

At least Marco Wilson around the corner from Florida Gators has company.

The Alligator cornerback made a big move on the LSU Tigers with a narrow victory over Cole Taylor that would have given the Tigers a long fourth fight at the end of the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game in Gainesville, Florida. To celebrate, Wilson threw away Taylor’s shoe and was punished for his unsportsmanlike behavior. That kept LSU’s momentum going and the Tigres scored a goal on the field that made all the difference in the 37:34 game.

Borrowing from Austin Powers, who throws a shoe? Honestly.

Bad shoes and defeat cost the Alligators an opportunity in the university football play-offs. However, it is not even the first object to be thrown into a festive mood or anger at a sporting event. Wilson’s not even the most famous alligator known to throw a garment. Former coach Steve Surrier from Florida has at least two Twitter pens for his sights, which he was known to throw if something went wrong.

The softest of the loose

In 1990, Lu Pignella, then director of the Reds in Cincinnati, set the standard for throwing objects when, after an argument with a judge, he took first base off the ground and threw in the right field. As head of the Seattle Mariners, he dropped his hat and his base.

Then, at the Chicago Cubs, he got angry at the third baseman and kept throwing and kicked his hat.

Inspired by Piniella, Lloyd McClendon, then manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, was annoyed by two failures at first base in 2001. He had an argument and was thrown out, but instead of leaving the base in the field, he took him to the dugout.

In 1993, Hal McRae, then manager of the Kansas City Royals, was unhappy with the loss of his 7-12 team on the Detroit Tigers. The press conference after the game was held at McRae’s office and the reporter asked a question the manager didn’t like. McRae panicked and started throwing everything on the table, hit a reporter in the face with a phone and spilled blood.

Throw anything but baseballs

If you thought managers were the only ones who got angry and threw things away, you’d be wrong. Great men like Roger Clemens and Hunter Torium had fun.

Take a seat

In 1985, Indiana coach Huseyers Bobby Knight, known for his performance, became angry with the officials and threw a red chair over the field. But he’s not the only athlete who throws a siege (and wrestling doesn’t count).

Almost even more impressive is the movement of several people with a long wooden bench to throw them on the ice.

Lane Kiffin knows it’s.

Make sure the clipboard floats.

Largest manager fused

It’s one thing to throw away a shoe. It is another achievement of immortality.

In 2007, Phil Wellman, then director of the Mississippi Brave Junior League, was angry with the jury because he had thrown his pitcher for using a foreign substance. Wellman went out to protest the bell and stained his marble. He pulled out third base and threw it over the field before crawling to the pitching hill. He threw a bag of resin at the judge as if it was a hand grenade and pretended to throw the judges out. Eventually he left the field with two bases in tow.
