Alabama ‘appalled’ by anti-LSU Katrina banner


Alabama and LSU meet in a high-stakes football game Saturday night, but Alabama is ripping some fans for taking the rivalry too far.

During the week, a banner was spotted hanging from an off-campus apartment encouraging the Crimson Tide to finish what Hurricane Katrina started in Louisiana.

The banner was bad enough that the university itself chimed in via the school’s official Twitter account.

The school went on to criticize other offensive banners and encouraged a welcoming environment in Tuscaloosa for the big game.

LSU took notice of the banner too. Star running back Leonard Fournette, a New Orleans native who lost his home in the storm, fired off a warning.

LSU alum Odell Beckham Jr. also had something to say about that banner. “Katrina never broke us,” he wrote on Instagram. “It made us savages.”

Not that LSU needed any further motivation – they’re playing for a playoff spot – but that horrible banner may have made them even more determined to take out Alabama.
