Uh-Oh, LSU Officials Will Catch Hell Over This One

We’re not going to get too deep into this one.  We already talk sports around here and that means anything we write is going to viewed as “controversial” by someone out there.  So adding politics 0r religion to that mix?  Nope, no need to tackle that.

Instead, we’ll just send you over to Yahoo! Sports and their story of how a group of Christian Tiger fans who paint their bodies in school colors and also adorn their chests with crosses had said crosses photoshopped out in a photo sent out by the school in a campus-wide email.

No doubt the school was trying to be PC and would have also photoshooped out Stars of David or Muslim crescents painted on fans’ chests.  But Louisiana is in the Bible Belt, my friends.  And taking crosses out of that photo?  Well, I’m just glad I’m not having to man the phones in the LSU chancellor’s office today.

Here’s the story.

New Tabs And Pages For Missouri And Texas A&M Are Up

Well, as you can see we’ve jumped the gun and officially added Missouri and Texas A&M to the SEC’s roster of schools before they officially join the league.

In doing so, I wondered what the first responses would be:


A.  Thanks from A&M and Mizzou fans?

B.  You’ve got the colors all wrong?

C.  Why don’t you just list the schools in alphabetical order?

D.  You shouldn’t use abbreviations?


Well, it wasn’t A.

Just so you’ll know, we’re still tweaking the placement of the tabs — all centered or all left-justified.

Also, the colors were plucked straight from the official websites of each SEC school.  So if the color looks wrong to you, email your favorite athletic department and ask them to fix their sites.

The schools are listed in alphabetical order by their usual name — Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss — for example, but we chose to use abbreviations so the writing would be much larger and easier to read.

The abbreviations used are those used by the universities themselves, thus MU for Mizzou and UM for Ole Miss.

Finally, depending on your computer — Mac or PC — your browser and your computer’s color settings and pixel settings, your view of the page might look different from someone else’s view of the page.

We’ll keep tweaking where we feel we need to and we’ll do so in relation to the feedback we get from different computer users, different browser users, etc.

Many thanks… and welcome to officially, Missouri and Texas A&M.

The Management
