- LSU officials admit to doctoring a photo of a group of fans called the Painted Posse in a campus e-mail about the school's victory over South Carolina Oct. 13, removing crosses the fans had painted on their chests.
- The Painted Posse is a group of Christian students who paint their bodies with LSU school colors and small crosses for LSU games, and the school issued a statement saying it doesn't want to imply any religious or political statements and will avoid a similar situation next time by just choosing a different photo.
- The statement went on to call the deletion a mistake and apologize to the students, saying their "school spirit is second to none.”
