Former USC DB Gerald Bowman Threatens Notre Dame DL Jerry Tillery

USC defeated Notre Dame 45-27 this afternoon, but the actions of Fighting Irish DL Jerry Tillery stole some headlines.

Tillery kicked an injured USC player in the head and stepped on another Trojan player's foot. Former USC safety Gerald Bowman was not amused watching on television.

Bowman took to Twitter to threaten retribution for Tillery's behavior if he ever met him in person.

Well, we can't excuse the homophobic slur from Bowman, but we can certainly understand why he was as upset as he was. Tillery was way out of line for what he did, and will likely receive some sort of reprimanding from Brian Kelly.

For USC, today was the second time in three seasons they have blown the Irish out at home. For Notre Dame, it was the conclusion of a miserable 4-8 season.
