The dark side of rivalry.
Alabama and LSU will meet this Saturday in their annual rivalry game. There is no love lost between these two fan bases.
Unfortunately, things can get out of hand, and some fanatics go a step too far.
Alabama defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs said on Twitter that some LSU fans have sent him “horrible” messages leading up to the game. Buggs is a Ruston, La. native.
Woke up this morning to horrible messages from louisiana fans how could you wish such bad things on players, like i just dont get it.

Buggs didn’t specify what the messages were, and to be fair, not all LSU fans are doing this. Hopefully it is a small faction.
Still, even one person is too many.
