Tennessee and Vanderbilt are bitter rivals, especially when it comes to basketball. Both Vanderbilt (16-12, 6-9 SEC) and Tennessee (14-13, 6-9 SEC) have been struggling this season, so Vandy’s 73-65 win means bragging rights for them. But Vanderbilt’s Wade Baldwin took his excitement a little too far, and his coach, Kevin Stallings, lost his mind in a way you rarely see.

Baldwin did apologize after the game on Twitter:
