University of Florida Apologizes for Ushering African American Students Off stage For Excessive Celebration - Sports Gossip
Give them 15 yard penalties, don't put hands on them

Students at the University of Florida are speaking out after a faculty member forcibly rushed graduates, most of them African-American, off stage during one of the school's commencement ceremonies over the weekend. 

UF President W. Kent Fuchs issued an apology after videos of the incident surfaced online. Check out some more from the moment below: 

Graduating is the equivalent to scoring a touchdown in the NFL. Let these kids celebrate any way they want. If they go streaking, then yes, tackle them off the stage. Otherwise let these kids express themselves. 

Of course the school apologized. Every day we hear more sorrys than why something actually happened. SMH.
