Western Kentucky coaches break paddles on each other (and they've done this before)

The Hilltoppers have adopted a pretty insane pregame tradition.

You think you're excited about Sun Belt Tuesday? No. Compared to WKU's strength coaches, you hate Sun Belt Tuesday. Nobody's more excited about anything than these guys are about Sun Belt Tuesday. And they do this kind of stuff for every game.

Sometimes paddles don't break. That probably hurts way worse.
