Does This Alabama Fan Banner Go Too Far For A College Football Rivalry?

Does this banner that was hung off the balcony of an off campus student residence in Tuscaloosa go too far in hyping something as trivial as a college football game?

Oh yeah. Not cool.

The sign makes light of the death toll and devastation brought to Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina, which was one of the most deadly in human history. Nearly 2,000 people died as a result of the storm.

Sean Landry, the editor-in-chief of the Alabama student paper The Crimson White reported on the banner via Twitter.

Alabama plays LSU on Saturday in an important match up for two teams that are currently in the top four in the whole country.

“UA is appalled that anyone would display a banner with such an inappropriate and offensive statement,” A spokesperson for the University of Alabama told the Crimson White.
