LSU entered the fourth quarter of a game against Arkansas with a comfortable lead. But was it comfortable enough for star running back Leonard Fournette to be taking photos with fans on the sidelines?
That’s the question that many SEC fans are putting out there after Fournette was caught on the ESPN telecast with his back to the game as he posed for selfies with fans in the stands in Fayetteville on Saturday night.
The Tigers were up 28-10 with a little more than 14 minutes remaining in the contest when Fournette stopped for a quick Kodak moment with some fans.

After scoring three times earlier in the game for LSU, Fournette appeared to be done for the evening after reportedly aggravating an ankle injury that has plagued him for much of his junior season.
Fournette is generally considered a friendly guy and this is a fairly harmless act, but when did that stop SEC fans from turning things like this into a big deal?
Here’s a look at some of the react to Fournette’s move:
Some Arkansas fans just got Fournette to take a selfie with them. The Battle for the Boot ceases importance #LSUvsArk

These announcers upset about Fournette taking selfies with fans while he's out injured. Like who gives a shit?

You know Fournette is good when even Hogs fans are taking a selfie with him on the sidelines. #Respect
