I'm shocked, I repeat, shocked, to hear that LSU's student section has been accused of directing intensely vulgar language at opponents. You mean saying stuff like "Teabag Tebow" repeatedly is bad? I guess it is, because the football team got the combination of Glenn Dorsey and Jacob Hester to try and quell the rising storm of vulgarity at home games. Here was the letter both stars wrote that appeared in today's Daily Reveille, the LSU student newspaper.
An open letter to the LSU student section in Tiger Stadium.
The LSU student section is the heartbeat of Death Valley and the center of emotion for our great stadium.
But during the last two games, vulgar language directed at our opponents by the student section has been dissapointing and embarassing to our school.
Your chants can be heard by the national television audience that tunes in from all over America. When those chants include offensive language, it only damages Louisiana State University. More importantly, these chants can be heard by young children in the stadium who come to see their Tigers play.
We need to support our team. You are important to our success. But that doesn't mean you need to insult our opponents. Let us, the players, take care of our opponents through competition on the field.
We are taught by our coaches to act like champions, play like champions and win like champions. We need you to do the same.
We hope you are with us.
Glenn Dorsey Jacob Hester
I'm surprised too. Dorsey and Hester can write? But quite frankly, what damage can possibly be done to LSU? It's not like I ever thought you were a real university to begin with anyway.
