LSU isn’t the only school struggling to morally corral its student section.
Alabama athletic director Bill Battle said Wednesday the school will review the playing of “Dixieland Delight” at future events after Crimson Tide students used the f-word while singing the song this past Saturday vs. Auburn.
“It is always our goal to represent the University with class in every endeavor, and the behavior of our fans is an important element in that effort,” Battle told AL.com.
At LSU, administrators and officials have had similar struggles. The Golden Band from Tigerland stopped playing the popular song “Talkin’ Out the Side of Your Neck” in recent years because of profane chants. The student section also caught flack last month against Alabama for directing vulgar chants toward coach Nick Saban.
LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva issued statement after statement this past season, pleading for students to change their behavior. His most recent came after the game vs. Alabama, when he called vulgar chants directed toward Saban “the antithesis of what we represent at LSU.”
