So, I guess LSU doesn't want to mix football and religion. Below, you'll see a picture taken at the LSU vs South Carolina game of an LSU student rally group called The Painted Posse.

From Yahoo :

"In reproducing the photo for a campus wide email, LSU made the decision to airbrush out the crosses on the students' chests. See, The Painted Posse is a group of Christian-centered Tiger fans."


I'm not sure not sure what the big deal is. Why would you airbrush the crosses out? I played football all my life, and we prayed before and after every game.

LSU released this statement :

"We don't want to imply we are making any religious or political statements, so we air-brushed it out," the school said in a statement to Fox News. "Only one of the students, who didn't appreciate it, actually contacted us about it. So next time, we'll just choose a different photo."
