Alabama is condemning a fan sign targeting LSU that used Hurricane Katrina to mock the team.

Pictures of the sign began circulating on social media on Friday. The sign was reportedly hung from an off-campus apartment complex and said "Finish what Katrina started" and included the script 'A' Alabama logo.



Alabama said on the school's Twitter account that it is "appalled that anyone would display a banner with such an inappropriate and offensive statement."

The school said the banner has been removed.

The No. 4 Tigers play the seventh-ranked Crimson Tide in a Southeastern Conference showdown Saturday night.
