If a seemingly drunk fan was able to sneak his way into an opponent's postgame media session, Ole Miss better figure out a way to improve its security at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

After a 34-3 loss to Ole Miss this past Saturday, Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley answered questions from reporters—and a fan who sounds like he might have had a drink or two.

Drunk Ole Miss fan made it into the UT press conference and tried to ask Justin Worley a question. Funny. Awkward.

The fan got in a question, but it wasn't very clear. Here's our best guess as to what he asked: "You knew Ole Miss...you knew Ole Miss' defense was gonna be good. Anything that particularly surprised you about that?" 

Unfortunately the clip stops there, so we don't know if Worley ever answered the fan's question.

This has apparently happened before in Oxford.

For the record: I didn't give the guy a breathalyzer but based on the slurred speech and strange mannerisms, he did appear to be drunk.

According to Hugh Kellenberger of The Clarion-Ledger, Ole Miss is looking into the matter and will try to figure out a way to tighten up security. The security guard responsible for checking media credentials was reportedly in the wrong room on Saturday.
