Retro Saturday: The Ole Miss 'Screaming Marine' Denies a TD Celebration

Gunnery sergeant Stephen Roberts earned Internet fame by screaming "NOOO!" accompanied by a head bob to shoot down a Texas wide receiver's touchdown celebration.

When Longhorns WR Marquise Goodwin scored on a 69-yard pass to put UT up 17-7, it looked like he might be coming to mockingly salute Roberts. But in an interview with SB Nation's Steven Godfrey, Roberts indicated that Goodwin nearly did something much worse:

As he ran toward me, I could see him start to make the 'shhhhh' motion holding his hand up. I knew behind me was the Texas fan section, and he was staring straight ahead. So I'm thinking, well, I know he’s not 'shhhh-ing' his own people.

Sounds like Goodwin made the right decision to simply walk away there.

Hat tip to SB Nation.
