Southern Illinois Mascot Steamrolls Little Girl on the Court (Video)

Southern Illinois mascot

Welp, if your’e wondering why bad things happen to good people, we don’t have an answer, but we’ve got another case for your files.

Here, we see a little girl playing on the court of a basketball game in the background when the Southern Illinois mascot just runs her over. The Southern Illinois Salukis (whatever) were squaring off against the Wichita State Shockers, so let’s all be happy that it was the Illinois mascot that did this so we can curb this unpleasant talk of “shockers.”

Here it is:

I wasn’t able to find the name of the Southern Illinois mascot (don’t worry, I didn’t look that hard), so let’s just call him…Gunner.

I might be taking a simplistic view of this event. Maybe there’s a backstory between Gunner and this little girl. Maybe it goes back generations. Maybe this little girl got off light for her transgressions.

Your guess is as good as mine.
