Texas A&M defensive lineman Shemar Turner was ejected on Saturday following a forceful cheap-shot he delivered to the groin of Ole Miss offensive lineman Micah Pettus.
The incident left little room for interpretation as replays clearly showcased the intentional low blow, leaving no doubt about the reason for Turner’s ejection, as articulated by Joe Tessitore who was announcing the game on ESPN.
“We know why Shemar Turner was ejected,” Tessitore said.

But look at Pettus.
He doesn’t even flinch.

The cheap-shot couldn’t stop Ole Miss who went on to pick up a big-time win in dramatic fashion.
Running back Quinshon Judkins scored three touchdowns, including the game-winner from a yard out with just 1:40 remaining.
The Rebels improved to an impressive 8-1 (5-1 in the SEC) on the season.
A showdown against the Georgia Bulldogs is next for Lane Kiffin’s squad.
As for Turner, he owned up to his mistake and apologized for his unfortunate actions on X…
“I want to apologize for embarrassing myself, my family, and my team! My actions were unacceptable and stupid. I have to understand what teams are gonna try to do to get me out my game I let my emotions get the best of me won’t happen again period… #GigEm.”

What’s the dirtiest cheap-shot you’ve ever seen?
Looking at the big picture in Aggieland, are we witnessing the final days of Jimbo Fisher on the A&M sidelines???
