The Louisiana State University chapter of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity have apologized for hanging a game-day banner on last week, making a crude reference to former SEC co-defensive player of the year, Michael Sam. "Though satire is sometimes the goal, crossing the line and causing offense to others is never the intent," the fraternity wrote in an open apology addressed to LSU President and Chancellor F. King Alexander, The Times-Picayune reports. "We truly apologize to you and all other members of the LSU community who have had to deal with the effects of this banner."
ULM took a respectable game into the locker room against LSU, only trailing 10-0. The Warhawks got the ball out of halftime, too, but only recorded one first down before giving the ball back to LSU and unlike the first half, the Tigers wasted no time finding the endzone. Darrel Williams scored his second touchdown of the night on a 1-yard run and the TIgers poured on the points from there scoring on both possessions in the third quarter.
In his Kalamazoo, Michigan study, decorated with a Bucky flag and full-length sofa where he intends to watch his alma mater take on LSU on Saturday, Sidney Williams, Jr. expects memories to come flooding back.
