Jimmy Dykes offers food to officials explaining foul call during Arkansas-Alabama
Arkansas and Alabama are facing off in Fayetteville tonight in a huge SEC showdown.
Early in the 1st half, there was a bit of a skirmish between the teams that resulted in offsetting technical fouls.
One of the officials came over the ESPN2 announce team of Jay Bilas and Jimmy Dykes to explain the ruling, at which point Dykes hilariously offered the ref something to eat.
More specifically, Dykes had a plate from the highly popular Catfish Hole in Fayetteville and asked the official, “would you like some?”
The referee declined but the development brought a hearty laugh from Bilas.
