LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva issued a statement Monday in regard to the vulgar chant directed at Alabama coach Nick Saban during Saturday's game in Tiger Stadium. The statement, in part:
“Unfortunately, a small minority of people chose to diminish the image of our great university by engaging in a profane chant directed toward Coach Saban. We are deeply sorry that such crude behavior occurred in Tiger Stadium, because that is the antithesis of what we represent at LSU.
“If it occurs in the future, we will make every effort to identify those who choose to act in this manner and make sure they know they are no longer welcome in our stadium. Our hope, however, is that this will never happen again."
LSU coach Les Miles said during his Monday newsconference that he was too busy and too into Saturday's game to notice the chant.
