BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
The majority of students on the LSU campus Monday willing to comment on news of the fight in which four football players were allegedly involved in seemed to believe the story will soon be forgotten.
Fans also didn't seem worried about what happened, but what it'll mean for the season.
The Baton Rouge Police Department said it expects the four LSU football players implicated in last week's fight to speak with investigators Tuesday. While the details on what happened are still being kept quiet, students said they hope the attention on the team returns to the on-field action.
LSU's campus is once again crawling with students. However, the first day jitters for the state's flagship university are somewhat overshadowed by a fight outside Shady's early Friday morning involving notable football players.
Some students said it's like a "he said, she said" and it might be rumors. However, students are clearly talking about what did or did not happen.
"It's kind of the elephant in the room, if you will, the whole bar fight," said Myles Laroux.
BRPD said things started when a driver honked his horn to move a crowd out of his way. From there, witnesses said a brawl broke out between at least four LSU football players and four other people. One person said they saw Jordan Jefferson kick someone on the ground.
"If you wasn't there, you don't know what happened," said Brandon Johnson. "So, you can't really place blame on who did this and who did that."
The attorney for the four non-players said there are bloody pictures of his clients, but because they fear for their safety, he is not releasing them.
"That's about to blow over," said Eric Couto. "Everyone's ready for a good season. We want to win the championship."
Even with the hope that things will return to normal, there's no denying that having four players questioned by police puts a target on the school and a team expected to compete for a national championship.
A spokesman with the Baton Rouge Police Department said the four football players are expected to talk with investigators Tuesday. Attorney, Nathan Fisher, who is representing the players, said he has no idea what time police expect his clients to be there. He said he's still interviewing witnesses about the whole case.
