BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) — LSU fans have mixed reactions about the bar fight at Shady's last night. Some are seriously concerned about the distraction this could be for the team, and their goal of a national championship. Others say, it's no big deal.
"You've got to be smart. You've got to know what you're doing out there, and it's definitely not good for the team," says Ryan Murphy.
"They are student athletes, so there's a big magnifying glass on them. They have to watch every step they do," adds Christopher Rivaris.
Many were shocked to learn that star quarterback, Jordan Jefferson, was allegedly involved in the fight. "He's supposed to be our leader," says Jordan Haddad. "He's our quarterback and if he's going out to Shady's to get his groove on that's fine, just not this close to the season if you know what I mean."
While some are concerned that the trouble could hurt the Tigers on the field, others say, not a chance.
"I don't think its going to be that big of a distraction," says Chris Orf.
"Knowing Coach Miles, he'll crack down on them and it won't be an issue," adds Robby Abboud.
