    He was sucker punched. They beat him while he was on the floor knocked out. Murder should be the charge! He never threw a punch!

    I know that the article says it wasn't related to the game, but you kinda have to wonder if it didn't cross their minds with all the public furor and insinuations/accusations being thrown about

    Re: Bama fan beaten in bar fight after LSU game, dies in hospital Tuesday

    I was in Tuscaloosa watching the game at Egan’s. So I don’t know. But triangulating all the information at hand, I’d say it went down something like this:

    Bama fans are decked out in colors, in an LSU bar, and everybody of both loyalties has been drinking. Some more than others, but all have had a gracious plenty.

    Female cousin is one of the drunker ones, and is running her mouth. The local LSU fans are already doing a slow burn over #8, and are in no mood to hear the trash talk. But it’s coming from a woman, and in what passes for chivalry in Cajun country, they elect to confront the first male associate of said drunk female they can find.

    He’s also wearing crimson, and that doesn’t calm the situation. They demand that he shut up the trash talker....I’m sure interspersed with a lot of sexual vulgarity.

    Elder Alabama fan responds in kind, and LSU fan escalates with what turns out to be the fatal punch.

    The fact that all parties had multiple chances to de-escalate doesn’t change the character of what ended up happening...it wasn’t a freak accident. It was the culmination of several people making several consecutive bad decisions.

    The victim is dead. The puncher’s life is ruined. The puncher’s accomplice might or might not have his own set of problems, and at least two families will feel the effects for decades.

    And not to make light of a tragedy, but on my wedding night, I had a number of things on my mind, none of which had the first thing to do with drinking in a bar. Why was the groom there in the first place?
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    IIRC, the victim's own daughter has also stated it had nothing to do with the game.

    Also, one of the attackers' FB page shows him with his KY and Bama gear.

    Brother. nephew and I were at the game in BR, walked a good 2 miles to catch Uber ride after game, rough part of town east of stadium, no bar stops though.

    Everyone let down but no obscenities or loud mouths directed at us as we were all decked out in Bama gear.

    If you show a little humility and act like you've been there, chances are slimmer anything bad happens. My 2 cents.

    couple thoughts - I agree with the post above asking why you're barroom brawling on your wedding night. Priorities, man ! And my son attended the 2012 game in Tiger Stadium, the Yeldon screen game. I've never been treated better on the road than we were post-game. We didn't whoop it up, which certainly helped.

    I was screamed at and taunted after an LSU win at work when I lived in N.O, by an LSU fan that had never spoke to me before their win. I was taken aback. I'd have talked football with him any time had I known he was a fan.
    Some LSU fans harbor a great deal of animosity toward the Tide and their fans.

    I wore an Alabama ball cap much of the time during those years. It was shocking how confrontational he was.

    So...as far as I'm concerned if it quacks like a duck....

    Do have a link where that info is posted? I, for one, have not seen it...

It's believed Bowers was arguing with 27-year-old Azia Crockett when a second person, 24-year-old Ryan Anthony, "blindsided" him. Both men then allegedly proceeded to beat Bowers while he was on the floor.
    That sure does sound like the Bama fan was sucker punch to me.

    Here's the link to the article.

Not a good place to be if you`ve had a few, are a fan of another school (particularly us ) and are not a gracious winner. That would be a set up for disaster, trust me.
    The mixture of Creole is strong in SE Louisiana, but they all self identify as Cajuns, actual lineage notwithstanding.
    So the guy who blindsided him had just married the sister of the guy who was arguing with Bowers, only hours earlier.
    Boy hes gonna have a great honeymoon in prison.
