One of the stars of the Texas A&M football defense is in some hot water.
Shemar Turner, who has been solid for the Aggies this season, was ejected from Saturday’s game at Ole Miss for doing something that can only be described as a dirty low-blow.
Turner was getting blocked to the ground and an Ole Miss offensive lineman seemed to stand over him in a way to probably draw a reaction. And he got what he wanted.
After getting stood over, Turner stood up and swung right at No. 57’s groin. He was ejected.
This was just a bad look for the talented defensive lineman who’s in his third year with the program. He should know better at this point in his career. Heck, everyone should know better. You have to keep your cool in a situation like this, especially in a close game where your team needs you. Mental mistakes like this could cost a team a win.
It’s been that kind of season for Texas A&M football
While no one expected Texas A&M to compete for an SEC title, many expected a major turnaround for the Aggies after going just 5-7 last year. Right now, the Aggies are 5-3 and in danger of falling to 5-4 if they lose to Ole Miss on Saturday.
A win could save Jimbo Fisher’s job but a loss could spell the end of the former national champion head coach.
This Turner ejection just feels like a “when it rains, it pours” type of situation for the Aggies. However, a win could make everyone forget this. I wouldn’t be shocked if we saw a suspension for the veteran defensive lineman, though.
