Renardo Sidney Fight: Mississippi State Still Gathering Facts On Crowd Incident

It's been a troubling couple years for Renardo Sidney, and it's about to get a whole lot worse. The troubled 20-year old Mississippi State player missed his entire freshman year as the NCAA investigated his amateur status, missed nine games because of illegal benefits and was suspended for one game earlier this season for an incident that occurred in practice.

But this may be the nail in Sidney's coffin. Cameras caught him fighting with teammate Elgin Bailey in the stands between games at the Diamond Head Classic. Here's video:

 

It's not yet clear what Sidney's future with Mississippi State will be. Coach Rick Stansbury told the Associated Press that he will not comment until he learns all the facts. Athletic Director Scott Stricklin was a little more forthcoming.

"It's disappointing. Still gathering information, but it's not how we want our school represented."    

It remains to be seen whether this was indeed the last straw in a topsy-turvy college career for Sidney.
