Reggie Ragland responds to getting 'pantsed'
Reggie Ragland unintentionally became part of an internet sensation on Saturday when LSU tight end Logan Stokes gave him a good ol’ pantsing on the field during the third quarter of Alabama’s 20-13 overtime win. On Monday, the senior linebacker gave reporters his thoughts on the matter.
“I believe people have seen my butt more than I have. I’m getting tired of looking at it, to be honest,” Ragland said of his exposed derriere.
Ragland said many people thought he should have struck back against Stokes, but the linebacker knew he would have gotten chewed out by head coach Nick Saban and defensive coordinator Kirby Smart if he had. Instead, he said he just gave Stokes a look and a head shake.
“I just looked at him crazy and I was like ‘C’mon man,'” Ragland said.
For the record, here is what Stokes had to say about the incident on Twitter:
I was trying to yank him off the pile and his pants ripped not pants him. My bad
