It’s still regular season, but this weekend’s Arkansas-Tennessee series in Knoxville had the intensity of a Super Regional with Omaha on the line. The Arkansas No.1 managed to win the series with a 3-2 victory in Sunday’s rubber game. All three games were one-point decisions, with Arkansas overcoming a 5-0 first-inning deficit to win the opener 6-5 and Tennessee No.4 winning Game 2 8-7 on a Homer.

Baseball fans and members of the media around the world were taken aback by what happened after the weekend’s final as Dave Van Horn and Tony Vitello, a former DVH assistant, had a heated exchange.

Emily Proud and Trey Wallace captured clips from the initial exchange:

The coaches then spoke to their team groups. After that, they had a one-on-one conversation. Ben McKee captured this conversation, noting that it didn’t end with a handshake:

Vitello declined to go into details after the game, per Wes Rucker:

With the way these two teams play, it is possible that the Vols and Hogs have not finished fighting on the diamond and may meet again in the playoffs.
