LSU analyst punched in pacemaker after loss to Texas A&M

LSU analyst punched in pacemaker after loss to Texas A&M

Kragthorpe, who's had the pacemaker since 2017 in order to stimulate his brain, had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2011.

Texas A&M beat LSU in an absurdly entertaining football game Saturday night.

According to The Advocate, LSU analyst Steve Kragthorpe was punched on the field following the Tiger's seven-overtime loss to Texas A&M.

"Out of nowhere, I got nailed", Kragthorpe said in a phone interview while he drove back home from the game Sunday afternoon.

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. "I didn't go down, but I clutched over".

LSU's players gave coach Ed Orgeron a congratulatory Gatorade bath to celebrate a big road win over Texas A&M to close their regular season.

"I didn't appreciate getting punched in my pacemaker", Kragthorpe said. "I'm not feeling good right now". But as you can see below, Texas A&M connected on a last-second touchdown to send the game to overtime. I have no idea who the guy is.

There are still a great number of details about the incident that remain unknown, including why the credentialed man punched Kraghorpe in the first place. It took a 50-yard field goal to grab a 34-31 lead at that point, but Texas A&M could only make a field goal of their own.

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.
