Louisiana Tech's Band Reportedly Chanted "We Have Football" At UAB Fans During Friday Night's Loss

Usually, there's nothing wrong with a little banter between fans of conference rivals. But what Louisiana Tech's band reportedly did Friday night seems to be a bit below the belt.

According to a number of fans in attendance at last night's game between UAB and Louisiana Tech, members of the Bulldogs' band began chanting "we have football" at Blazers supporters. If you haven't heard, UAB made the highly-controversial decision to abandon its football program after this past season. The news hit the players hard, and a video of an emotional meeting between the school's president and the football squad went viral.

UAB won the game in overtime, and the Blazers will have the chance to play in the NCAA Tournament if they can beat Middle Tennessee on Saturday.

Needless to say, this is probably going too far. As you can see, UAB fans didn't find the gesture very classy.
