Earlier this week we touched on how an Alabama fan hung an Alabama flag from Texas A&M’s Kyle Field, which is being upgraded over the next year and a half. That fan was reportedly fired. For hanging up a flag of a division rival of Texas A&M’s? Apparently not.
“This stadium will never be ready for this season,” Bobby Livingston, the fired Alabama fan responsible for the flag hanging, according to KBTX. “I’m putting iron in backwards and wrong holing everything!!”
He apparently did not stop there.
“If you ever attend a Texas A&M football game, don’t sit at the Northeast End Zone,” said Livingston. “It was raining today and I made 2 very “questionable” welds!!”
An inspector for the Kyle Field upgrade puts some concerns to rest with a statement saying a third-party firm has inspected, tested and verified different parts of the renovation project. To this point not structural damage or concerns have been discovered.
It is one thing to jokingly hang a flag of a rival from the football stadium. It is something else entirely to actually vandalize the stadium. Sometimes rivalry crosses a line that never needs to be crossed. Grown men vandalizing a stadium may just be one example. Faulty construction puts lives in danger, and that is worse than vandalism.

One of the most consistent pieces of Wisconsin’s passing attack, such as it is, will be on the shelf for the foreseeable future.
A UW official confirmed to madison.com that Austin Traylor sustained a right-arm injury in Saturday’s loss to Iowa. As a result, the tight end will be sidelined for the rather broad period of 4-8 weeks.
At best, Traylor could return for the Nov. 7 game against Maryland after missing contests with Nebraska, Purdue, Illinois and Rutgers. At worst, he’d miss the remainder of the regular season, but could return for a bowl game, and perhaps the Big Ten championship game if the Badgers were to earn another berth.
Because he’s already played in five games this season, Traylor would not be eligible for a medical hardship waiver if he were to miss the remainder of the year.
Traylor is tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns with three while his 15.6 yards per reception is tops on the team. He’s third in receiving yards with 156 and tied for fourth with 10 receptions.
With each passing day, it appears Miami won’t be able to avoid one of the most talented and productive running backs in the country.
Thursday, Dalvin Cook returned to practice for the first time this week. Cook suffered a hamstring injury in the first quarter of Florida State’s win over Wake Forest this past Saturday, and had spent the previous two days of practice riding a bicycle while the rest of his teammates prepped for the in-state and conference rivalry game against The U this Saturday.
The Palm Beach Post wrote that Cook showed “no signs” of the hamstring injury that had some worried about his availability in Week 6.
Head coach Jimbo Fisher, who said Wednesday he doesn’t “ever count Dalvin out” because of his healing ability, will meet with reporters later this evening and could address Cook’s status for the weekend then. Or, he could play to keep the Hurricanes guessing, even as most assume the All-ACC back will be on the field.
Cook is far and away FSU’s leading rusher, with his 142.5 yards per game good for eight in the country and his six rushing touchdowns tied for 20th.
