NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger knows only too well the intensity of the Alabama-LSU rivalry.
Mettenberger was sucker-punched last weekend by an Alabama fan while at a bar with fellow rookie Taylor Lewan. A man came up to him and said, "Roll Tide."
The former LSU quarterback, says he answered "Good luck with that" before being slugged. The man ran out of the bar before being chased down. A police report also was not filed.
The rookie spoke about the incident for the first time Saturday after Tennessee's opening training camp session. He says it's never fun getting punched in the face, but he took the high road to avoid distractions for the Titans.
There is one drawback.
Mettenberger keeps hearing "Roll Tide" from teammates.
