LSU athletic director asking fans to 'keep it clean' after vulgar chant resurfaces
10/18/2018 1:47pm

BATON ROUGE - In the wake of one of the most attended home games in LSU Football history, Athletic Director Joe Alleva has a message for fans: Keep it clean.Fans, especially those in LSUs student section, are known for their raucous behavior on gameday. But one particular tradition seems to have crossed the line for some folks.Many fans love to sing a vulgar phrase over an otherwise innocuous song called Neck.The chant is so loud that it can be picked on broadcasts during televised games, causing concern over potential fines. In recent years, the university has opted to sever the one-time staple from the bands gameday setlist in order to avoid the controversy altogether. On the rare occasion when it has reappeared, rowdy fans couldnt help but give in to old habits, making the songs return even less likely.Despite the ban, the chant made an appearance this past weekend, paired with what seemed to be an entirely different song. The forbidden lyrics resurfaced late in LSUs upset victory over the Georgia Bulldogs.The video below contains explicit language, obviously.LSU just put up 36 on Georgia.And Neck arrives. pic.twitter.com/6OUNE1KLGu&mdash Ross Dellenger RossDellenger October 13, 2018In response to the latest incident, the head of LSU Athletics has released a statement pleading with fans to keep it clean for national television this weekend.Be relentless. Be loud. But, I&rsquom asking our fans, and particularly our student section, to keep it clean, Athletic Director Joe Alleva said. We have a diverse group of fans in the stadium and every week we represent the entire LSU family on national television. Let&rsquos represent LSU with the pride and class it deserves.LSUs Homecoming game against 22 Mississippi State will be televised on ESPN at 6 p.m. Saturday.You can read the full letter from Joe Alleva&nbsphere.Permalink Comments

Fans' Choice Award Winner 2018: Week 7- Aiden Vosburg
10/17/2018 6:52pm

BATON ROUGE-&nbspCatholic High of Pointe Coupee quarterback Aiden Vosburg scored 2 touchdowns on the ground and 3 through the air on his way to a 273 yard performance.The first play, I ran it for a touchdown and thats when I knew it was going to be a good game, said Vosburg.&nbspI definitely probably the best Ive felt all year. My teammates just kept me up and we all kind of stayed up the whole game.The first year varsity starter is running&nbspan advanced triple option attack, which takes advantage of his athleticism and ability to read defenses.Although it is his first year as a true starter, hes been running this offense since he was in 7th grade, said head coach David Simoneaux. It gives me goosebumps to see someone who came up as a little 7th grade puppy, running our same plays.Its pretty advanced. You have to make a bunch of quick decisions, but the more you practice it, the more you get used to it, it becomes easier and easier, said Vosburg.Although only a sophomore, Vosburg has become a big leader in the Hornet locker room.Being the quarterback and leading your team to a 6-1 record so far will do that, but at the end of the day, it might actually be his mindset and willingness to play on the defensive as well that got him in the good graces of the upperclassmen. All the kids respect him because of his work ethic and his ability to get things done, said Simoneaux. The kids have responded to his commands and continue to follow his lead. Hes a guy that leads by example. Its really a big honor. Youve got to hold up a lot of people and they really pick me up even though Im just an underclassmen. They always help me out, said Vosburg.Permalink Comments
