Some enterprising Ole Miss fans won't soon forget their school's upset of Alabama, the first time the Rebels have topped the Crimson Tide since 2003.

Shortly after the Rebels' 23-17 victory was complete, students swarmed the field at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium (a violation for which the school would be fined $50,000).


Both goal posts (each valued at $4,000) were ripped out of the ground and carried off to the Grove, a popular tailgating spot on campus:


After a short time at the Grove, one of these posts made its way to the apartment of student Buckner Corso. A fifth-year senior studying accounting, Corso provided a detailed account on his Twitter page of what happened to the upright.

After a stop in the Grove, Corso and about 20 others carried it a mile from a tailgating area to his apartment:


This tweet got the attention of Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork:



The next day students cut up the goal post and delivered a few pieces to the athletic department -- one for Bjork and another for coach Hugh Freeze.



According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, after Ole Miss beat Florida in 2002 the Ole Miss Loyalty Foundation sold 100 6-inch pieces of the goal post on wood plaques for $100 each. Corso told Rovell that he and his buddies cut their post into 30 pieces, and while he plans on keeping his, he couldn't say whether any of the other units would be sold.
