Unnecessary Roughness

South Florida fans are outraged over the use of force by Tampa police and private security guards at the conclusion of the Bulls' stunning 45-14 victory over Louisville. As fans stormed the field at Raymond James Stadium to celebrate arguably the biggest win in team history, police were waiting with Tasers, batons and handcuffs. South Florida professor Kathleen Armstrong told the St. Petersburg Times that the incident brought back memories of a 1960s or '70s war protest, saying two or three officers would take down one fan, "throwing (the fan) on the ground, punching them in the head, the chest, the back or slamming them against the wall."
