The way things have been going this week, the much anticipated matchup of LSU and Oregon on opening weekend may be a battle of backup quarterbacks. First it was Oregon's Darron Thomas being in a car with marijuana as Cliff Harris put its engine to the test, and now reports out of Baton Rouge say that LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson was involved in a bar fight on Thursday night.
Police investigating a fight outside a Baton Rouge bar last night said LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and other LSU football players are believed to have been involved in the disturbance.

EMS responded to a call at the location on East Boyd Ave. around 2 a.m., but didn't transport anyone to the hospital.
According to the police, Jefferson and other LSU players were implicated in the fight by witness statements. Nobody was arrested, however, as the police are still investigating what took place. Also, it should be pointed out that just because Jefferson and company may have been involved in the fight, that doesn't mean they started it.

LSU head coach Les Miles released a statement about the incident on Friday afternoon.

"We are aware of the incident that took place at an off-campus location at which some of our players were present.  We don't know to what extent our players were involved.  We are trying to gather as much information as possible to get a better understanding of what exactly took place last night."

No, actually i was there and thats not exactly how it happened.  Three guys were trying to leave the bar, but the football players were blocking the exit. The driver honked. They still wouldn't move. He honked again, but little did he know that this would anger the football players and cause them to drag the three guys out of the car. Punch the fuck out of each of them. And then they started stomping on their heads. Just imagine about 15-20 football players stomping on these three innocent guys.. So a marine that just got back from training and was randomly at the bar knows that he has to do something.  He tries to rescue the guys on the ground, but is eventually overpowered and then he too is getting stomped on the face by more lsu players.  And don't get me wrong.. I'm a die-hard lsu fan! But what they did to these poor guys... what has the world come to?

I call BS on your story

1- what kind of vehicle were they driving?  you should know, you were there right??

2- EVERY story I have read states that 3-4 LSU players were actually involved.  4-5 witnesses interviewd by police and EVERY local news outlet has pretty much agreed on that point

3- also they keep saying the driver was attacked, you say all three were attacked

4- you say a marine that just got back from training, how did you know that?? his friend??  was he the "victims" friend too??

5- you claim a lot of punching and stomping on 3 guys and then the marine, strange as hell that only 1 rescue wagon was called, strange as hell that NONE of the 4 people were injured enough to have the meat wagon take them to the hospital, strange as hell that the police keep saying minor injuries were sustained.

yeah you were there....

BS

FYI-

according to old Burt he was there

I call BS

1- your story is NOT what 4-5 key defendant witnesses are saying
2- IF 15-20 boys were stomping on 3, why did police want to talk to 3-4
3-  if EVERY report says the players pulled the driver out, but YOU say they pulled 3 out hmmm

why the hell do you want to look like an idiot?

First off, you might be a tough ass in the south, but you bring your Tiger Bait chant this way and you will get what we call "A OLD FASHION ASS WHOOPIN" That would include jerking your ass up by your neck.... taking you out behind the woodshed and giving you a beat down you have never been part of and leaving your ass for the kyotes to to dispose of. Sounds to me like you guys land 1 out of every 15 punches you throw, if you bring that candy ass sh!t to Mo-town you might be spending a night or two at Ruby Memorial. So before you punks think your going to roll into TOUCHDOWN CITY and be BUBBA BAD ASS FROM SOUTH!!!!!! you might want to check yourself before you wreck yourself. I can promise you right now, you bring that attitude into Mo-Town and it will be just like the main man Hank Williams Jr. sings, Its a attitude adjustment........

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO



OOOOOOOOOOOO
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO



OOOOOOOOOOOO
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

OOOOOOOOOOOO

Put down the moonshine and let go of your sister.

This little thug kicked a Marine while he was down and helped 6 friends hurt him.  Time for him to go to PRISON.  Screw suspension - he should be in jail for 5-10
.I agree, what that Marine did was assault.  Just because he lost the fight doesn't make him the victim.

Throw all three of them off the team.  Let them come back next year if they want.

If that is what happened I have to agree completely....I don't understand what the hesitation is then they should be moving quick on this and sending some people to jail for serious jail time--not overnight.  Wow!!  This is terrible and disrespectful of our armed forces and human life in general.  I'm rather shocked to here this as I just assumed it was a simple barfight with a couple of punches thrown.  As if the NCAA didn't have enough black eyes this year with Miami, the Bama suits, GT, UNC, and OSU--I don't count that lame charge against Boise as that was ludicrous.  Wow the inmates really are running the asylum!!!

timm6971463: Your effort at humor was lame, disrespectful to a victim, and uninformed. Sorry, but that's how I see your comments. Try again, displaying respect for the victims.
