This past weekend couldn’t have gone any better on Rocky Top.

Tennessee knocked off Georgia for a huge win in the SEC East race, and Vols fans for once weren’t driven insane by Butch Jones’ late-game decision-making.

Life was good in Knoxville — except for this one guy.

After the Vols’ victory went final, fans started to storm the field to celebrate. While hundreds rushed Neyland Stadium, for whatever reason a security guard singled out one Tennessee fan who was trying to join the fun and laid him out before he could leave the end zone.

Look at this form tackle:

There’s something going on with Tennessee security, because this isn’t the first time this season an intruding fan has been leveled on the field. During Tennessee’s game against Bowling Green earlier this season, a fan ran onto the field during a weather delay and got equally annihilated (this game wasn’t in Knoxille, though, but rather at the Titans’ stadium):

Impressive on both counts, but were either of those as good as this security guard clothes-lining an Alabama fan last year after he threw a drink at an Ole Miss crowd?

It’s close. But the reigning champ of on-field fan tackling, for me, remains Ohio State strength coach Anthony Schlegel, who bodyslammed this dude last year in Columbus:

Ohio state coach 1, guy running on the field 0

Schlegel’s work was so good that he was instantly immortalized with photoshops. So the bar’s been set, Vols fans.
