Tom Gugliotta, yes THAT Tom Gugliotta, got ejected from a game he had no involvement in

Every so often a fan gets a bit too out-of-hand at a sporting event and has to be removed from the premises.

We've all seen it before, whether on TV or in-person. It's just part of the sports culture.

But have you ever seen a former-NBA All-Star and a former college point guard get ejected from a college basketball the referee

I sure haven't.

When I was informed that Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani, both former-North Carolina State players, were ejected from today's NC-State vs. Florida State game, I figured that they were assistant coaches who had drawn the ire of the referees.

The only problem is that neither Gugliotta or Corchiani are members of the NC-State coaching staff.

Just peep the video.

I don't know what either of them did, but referee Karl Hess certainly didn't like it.

I hope Hess had a good reason, because the last thing a school like NC-State needs is one of their highly-visible alumni to be upset with the athletic program. After the week NC-State has had, the last thing they need is a viral video featuring two of their more recognizable alums.

But more to the point, "Googs" was in NBA Jam for Christ sake! How are you gonna do him like that?
