Jimbo Fisher's Nephew Reportedly the Person Who Punched LSU Analyst Steve Kragthorpe

Jimbo Fisher's Nephew Reportedly the Person Who Punched LSU Analyst Steve Kragthorpe

A photographer for The Baton Rouge Advocate tweeted a photo of LSU director of player personnel Kevin Faulk and a man they say had what appears to be an Aggie bench credential in a physical altercation after the game.

Kragthorpe, 53, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2011 and has worn a pacemaker to stimulate his brain since previous year.

He has reportedly been on the sidelines for games at both Florida State and Texas A&M, though he has no official role with either school.

According to NOLA.com, LSU analyst Steve Kragthorpe, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2011, was punched by a man credentialed by Texas A&M after the game on the field.

"I didn't appreciate getting punched in my pacemaker", Kragthorpe told the Daily Advertiser. "I was like, 'Damn, he got me right in my pacemaker.' Then it started fluttering like he jostled it".

Per the Dallas Morning News, the A&M staffer who allegedly punched Kragthorpe came over to find Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher after the game.

Nearly two hours after LSU dumped Gatorade on their coach in premature celebration, the Texas A&M Aggies prevailed, 74-72. The current Texas A&M receivers coach used to be the LSU receivers coach. He does not plan on pressing charges against the unknown culprit but said Texas A&M may be responsible for any costs related to the incident.

The 74 points LSU allowed are the most ever given up by a ranked team, eclipsing the 73 No. 24 Fresno State gave up to Northern Illinois on October 6, 1990, and the first seven overtime game involving a ranked team. I have no idea who the guy is.
