Two Alabama basketball fans caused quite the stir in Nashville while cheering on their Crimson Tide at the SEC Basketball Tournament.

The two fans were sporting matching shirts that said "GOATS" with the Alabama "A" on the front and "Killin' our way through the SEC in '23" on the back.

The shirts seemingly reference now-former Tide player Darius Miles' arrest for his role in the shooting death of a young mother in January. Miles was indicted this week for the death of Jamea Harris. Two players still on the team, Brandon Miller and Jayden Bradley, were also both involved for reportedly bringing the gun. Neither has been charged with a crime, but many in the media have called for them to be punished.

John Talty, sports editor for, confronted the two fans on Saturday over their shirts.

According to Talty, one of the men, who refused to give his name, told the reporter multiple times to "[g]et the f*** out of my face." The fan added he intended to be at Sunday's SEC Championship Game to cheer on the Tide against Texas A&M.

Talty then spoke with the SEC about the fans, who the league said would not be allowed on Sunday if they were sporting the same shirt. The spokesman told the outlet that if the fans are seen wearing the shirts at any time throughout the game, they would be asked to leave.
