Thought the Cole Fisher-Kevin Faulk-Steve Kragthorpe story was going to go away? NOPE!
On Sunday, it seemed as if Jimbo Fisher’s nephew punched LSU’s Steve Kragthorpe, who has Parkinson’s, leading to this infamous photo with Kevin Faulk:
There wasn’t much video of this incident at the time I published the original blog. That isn’t the case now:
You can see Cole Fisher in the red shirt around the 40-yard marker:
It appears the punch never happened, instead it was a push.
Does that make it different? A little. Should Cole Fisher have pushed Steve Kragthorpe? No. Did he know Kragthorpe struggles with Parkinson’s? I have no idea.
Other video surfaced of a sucker punch thrown by an LSU safety:
I’ll tell you one thing, that’s not great! I haven’t seen anything from this LSU player. The most likely scenario was John Battle being mad at Fisher for his encounter with Kragthorpe, but who knows what Fisher could’ve said.
A&M & LSU have quite the little rivalry brewing right now. I don’t mind it. Hate is oxygen in the college football world.
