Adding to Jones' misery is a banner trolling him with an interesting message flown in Alabama prior to Saturday's game versus the Crimson Tide. And in an unusual twist, the banner mentions a law firm in Chattanooga. We aren't sure about the connection, but the banner has an spelling error (YUO instead of YOU) and could use an editor.
