Football season is fast approaching, and that means college football fans are gearing up as well. With Kyle Field, home of the Texas A&M Aggies, undergoing renovations, a construction worker seized the opportunity to troll the Texas A&M fanbase.

According to College Football Talk, Bobby Livingston, the fan fired for hanging the Alabama flag, may have done a lot more damage than just hanging a flag.
“This stadium will never be ready for this season,” said Livingston in on his Facebook (h/t KBTX). “It was raining today and I made 2 very “questionable” welds!!”
To put some fears to rest, a third-party firm has reportedly inspected, tested and verified different parts of the renovation project and found no structural damages.

It's no secret that there is some bad blood between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Aggies. In 2012, the Aggies handed the Tide their one and only loss of the season, a 29-24 final in Tuscaloosa that knocked them out of the No. 1 spot in the AP and BCS rankings.
The next year, Johnny Manziel did all he could, but ultimately the Tide got their revenge, beating A&M 49-42 in College Station.
According to Outkick the Coverage's Clay Travis, the construction worker who hung the flag was fired shortly after. Surprisingly, he is not an Alabama alum.
