There's a lot going on here, all encapsulated by this insanely good photo and video from the aftermath of a seven-OT thriller at College Station.
Shown in the image is former Patriots RB Kevin Faulk, now the LSU Director of Player Personnel, putting his hands on a Texas A&M man with a bench credential.

According to those on the scene, though, there's a very good reason for the scuffle. This A&M-affiliated man, whoever he may be, allegedly punched Steve Kragthorpe, an LSU coach and former player who is now suffering from Parkinson's Disease.

We're not certain how things could've gotten so heated; while the marathon classic on A&M's home field was pure insanity from the final whistle of regulation onward, there was no controversial moment late in OT that would've led to swinging 'bows. No clue why this Aggie found it appropriate to punch anyone on LSU's sideline, let alone someone suffering from a dreaded disease. Faulk reacted the way any of us would.
Safe to say we're waiting for updates here.
