Tennessee fan Dewayne Lawson was banished to a tent in his driveway recently by his wife Bridget Trogden, an associate professor of chemistry at Mercer, after Tennessee easily topped the Bears in the second-round of the NCAA Tournament. No, really. This tweet from Trogden went viral soon after the game.
Sorry, dear husband @macon_volfan. You can come back in Sun night. @13wmaznews@merceryou#gobears#mercermadnesspic.twitter.com/3ic87Z53AB

See, this is the kind of punishment that can drive a middle-aged man to irreparably fuck up his back. And over Mercer basketball? Did anyone at Mercer know they had a basketball team before they beat Duke? (Don’t answer that. I’m bitter and hurting.)
Anyway, this house-divided scenario was all in good fun—Trogden actually was forced to say she didn’t make her husband sleep outside—although Lawson did send this tweet shortly after his wife’s.
My wife hates me. RT @BTrog: Sorry, dear husband @macon_volfan. You can come back in Sun night. #mercermadnesspic.twitter.com/ypOy6NtnrI
