Newly Released Video Shows That The LSU Analyst With Pacemaker Was The Aggressor (VIDEO)
Apparently seven overtimes just wasn’t enough.
Newly released video is giving us more details on what exactly happened at the end of the A&M-Tigers game over the weekend.
Shortly after the Texas A&M Aggies defeated the LSU Tigers 74-72, an incident kicked off on the field as fans began to rush the field in celebration. After No. 22 Texas A&M outlasted No. 7 LSU — Texas A&M receivers coach and former LSU coach Dameyune Craig reportedly yelled at just about everybody on the sidelines and had to be restrained and sent away.
Before this, Texas A&M receivers coach and former #LSU coach Dameyune Craig ran over to the LSU bench screaming vulgarities, throwing his headset at them and challenging everybody to fight, multiple sources near the incident said. https://t.co/ECyJYBceox

In the newly released video, Cole Fisher(Red shirt) could be seen pushing Craig away from LSU’s sidelines, but that’s when LSU analyst Steve Kragthorpe came charging in to confront Craig/Fisher.
Cole could be seen turning around to Kragthorpe and possibly pushing him away as he had the situation already handled. Hard to see, but it looks like that’s when LSU director of player development Kevin Faulk came in and punches began to get thrown by both parties.
Is this Steve Kragthorpe making beeline toward Dameyune Craig/Cole Fisher (Fisher in red shirt)? If so, looks like nothing more than a shove from Cole Fisher in response. Plenty to be figured out here, surely someone on east side (closer) was videoing:https://t.co/Z4rrho9AB0

Via The Advertiser:
“Dameyune Craig started the whole thing,” Kragthorpe said. “Just trash talking and yelling and screaming a bunch of crap.”
“I went up to Dameyune and said, ‘Hey, Dameyune get out of here. You won. You don’t need to be doing that. Move along,'” Kragthorpe said. “And that’s when I got hit. I mean, I got nailed. He was a young guy. I’m 53. I’m not going to fight him. I have Parkinson’s, but even if I didn’t, I haven’t gotten in a fight since high school. That would be a poor reflection on Coach O and Joe (athletic director Joe Alleva).”
“Out of nowhere, I got nailed,” Kragthorpe said in a phone interview while he drove back home from the game Sunday afternoon. “I didn’t go down, but I clutched over. I was like, ‘Damn, he got me right in my pacemaker.’ Then it started fluttering like he jostled it.”
“I feel OK, but not as good as I was,” Kragthorpe said. “I felt like he tore something in there. I will be seeing my neurologist in Baton Rouge on Monday.”
“I don’t want to press charges,” he said. “I don’t want to pursue it. It’s one of those things that happens in the heat of the moment.”
“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 signalling during the game. He was credentialed, so A&M should know who he is.”
Faulk stated he saw someone punch Kragthorpe in the chest and he went after them.
“It’s unfortunate this situation happened,” Faulk said Sunday in a phone interview. “It got out of hand. But I was just behaving as my mom and dad raised me. This guy hit Coach Kragthorpe in the chest. I just stepped in. It just happened.
