LSU vs. Texas A&M: Post-game fight breaks out between assistant and credentialed man
LSU and Texas A&M played through seven overtimes and the madness didn't stop there
No. 7 LSU and No. 22 Texas A&M played in the wildest game of the 2018 college football season: a that ended up being the highest-scoring Division I game in history. Afterward, the madness bled into the postgame handshakes when an unidentified, credentialed member from the Texas A&M sideline got into a fight with LSU's director of player personnel and former Tigers running back Kevin Faulk.
According to LSU, the credentialed member from TAMU first punched LSU analyst Steve Kragthorpe, which apparently led to Faulk retaliating. Kragthorpe, who has Parkinson's disease, did not suffer any injuries. Glenn Guilbeau of Gannett Louisiana reached out to Kragthorpe, who spoke candidly about the incident in which he says he was punched directly in the pacemaker.
"I didn't appreciate getting punched in my pacemaker," he said. "I'm not feeling good right now. I have no idea who the guy is. But he was wearing an A&M shirt, and I think I saw him signaling during the game. He was credentialed, so A&M should know who he is."
Texas A&M has confirmed that it is looking into the matter. Ben Baby of the Dallas Morning News did catch the credentialed member speaking to Fisher about the incident. Fisher told the man, who is Fisher's nephew Cole Fisher according to the Baton Rouge Advocate, not to return to the football field.
Neither school has officially commented on the matter yet or laid out any type of repercussions for the incident. Additionally, the SEC has not yet commented on the incident.
