Moreau returns

Capital One, other bowls scout game

Representatives from the Southeastern Conference’s top non-BCS bowl game, the Capital One Bowl, were on hand Saturday.

Both teams were among a group of SEC schools the bowl is considering.

LSU played in the Capital One in 2004 and 2010, losing to Iowa and Penn State, respectively.

“LSU traveled extraordinarily well for both of those games,” Capital One representative Chris Kearney said.

Bowl reps from the Sugar, Cotton, Chick-fil-A, Texas and Senior bowls were also on hand.

And the band played @%($!

The kids didn’t keep it clean.

The Golden Band from Tigerland was expected to play fan favorites “Neck” and “Tiger Rag” for the first time in years Saturday. Only “Neck” was played, a result possibly of LSU’s student section chanting obscenities with the tune.

The school brought back the songs as part of a “Tradition Matters” campaign. They were shelved years ago because of the vulgar chants fans used during the songs.

The school urged students to abstain from chanting vulgarities Saturday in order to keep the songs on the band’s gameday docket.

Apparently, they didn’t listen.
