The MAC is a hotbed of passionate football fans, but this one referee in particular wasn’t having any of it and decided to spoil the fun.
In last night’s game between Toledo and Central Michigan, the Chippewas’ band and cheerleaders were apparently being too loud for this guy’s taste, so he felt the need to get on the mic and tell them to be quiet.
Wow, ref. What bug crawled up your nose and died? Granted, the crowd at Kelly/Shorts Stadium was only 13,490 strong, out of a capacity of 45,000, so maybe it was a bit loud from the cheerleading and band standpoint.
But that’s all part of the game, especially in the MAC. Let’s just chalk this one up to the referee having a bad day.
