Hat tip to the SB Nation mothership for finding this one. Bryan Holt of InsideTheGators.com deleted two of his tweets about the incident involving USF cornerback Chris Bivins, but not before SB Nation's Brian Floyd saved them:
Holt did clarify later:
Clarification: Chris Bivins returned to softball game after putting up the snake and cheered on Bulls to their first WCWS appearance.— Bryan Holt (@Bryan_Holt) May 27, 2012
"Kicked out" is not accurate for what happened with Bivins tonight. He's a good dude with a bright future. Different kind of character.— Bryan Holt (@Bryan_Holt) May 27, 2012
See, you can't get away with this as an incoming freshman. A couple of years from now, if Bivins had maybe a dozen interceptions and a couple touchdowns under his belt, I think he could have brought a 15-foot boa constrictor to the game with him and been happily admitted. No one would have said anything as the giant snake wrapped itself around the neck of some hapless fraternity brother and then tried to eat a preschooler whole. You have to earn that kind of leeway, though, so instead this is the funniest USF "athlete gets caught doing something dumb/illegal" moment since Toarlyn Fitzpatrick and Mike Burwell dined and dashed next to a plainclothes cop at Village Inn.
