Fisher yanked on linebacker Tyrel Dodson’s facemask during a player dustup as Texas A&M faced Arkansas. Many Aggies and non-Aggies have stated that this incident is a non-story, but it has been one to grab national attention. The original video shared on Twitter has racked up 3 million views so far.
Tyrel Dodson previously tweeted his own statement supporting his coach.
I’m in. Coach fisher is an amazing coach, he did the right thing. I let my emotions get the best of me at that certain moment. My teammates and this University needs me. That’s why he was so upset! He’ll have my back no matter what.— Tyrel Dodson (@tdots25) September 29, 2018
Is this whole story overblown to begin with? Are you satisfied with Fisher’s statement?
