The shooting actually happened before the game even finished, which resulted in Texas A&M pulling off an absurd upset.

According to AL.com, police do not have the suspect in custody but they know who he is.

College football fans are truly cut from a different kind of cloth. You talk smack to the wrong person, you might end up dead.

I’m not endorsing it, I don’t think it’s smart and I damn sure wouldn’t smoke someone for talking about the Badgers in the wrong manner.

Yet, I’d be lying to all of you if I didn’t point out that these fans exist! We live and die – sometimes very literally – for the sport.

Now, what do I think about someone who allegedly blows someone out of their shoes over the Crimson Tide/Aggies game?

I think they’re an idiot and 100% deserve to have the book thrown at them. If you’re ever that fired up, grab another beer. Don’t grab a gun.

Also, how did this happen while the game was still ongoing? They didn’t even wait to see who was going to win before things popped off? That just makes no sense at all.

An absolutely absurd and tragic situation.
