I am disappointed that Assembly Hall officials are still censoring students and fans a like during games by making them remove shirts and signs with statements that aren’t offensive.

What happened to freedom of speech? Obviously, that freedom doesn’t apply in Assembly Hall.

How about the Hall stopping the F-word instead of a poor guy wearing a sentiment that a lot of people share.

In a university environment, this is a restriction of speech that I would think many would find troubling or at least surprising.

I agree Doug. This alum and season ticket holder finds it very troubling.

This goes beyond “troubling”—Assembly Hall is still among the only Big 10 (or other) places that do not have a huge student section surrounding the court and presenting a “problem” for visiting teams. We allow most of the “good” seats to still go to the 80-somethings [life-long $$$ contributors] who usually fall asleep before halftime even at 7:00 games. And when anyone [especially non-students who actually HAVE an opinion] shows up in a shirt which does not comply with the current Administration’s PC policy, they are tossed, or forced to put on a different shirt. Great—-now we know what basketball must have been like in Nazi Germany.
Thanks to Greenspan & McRobbie for bringing 1984 back to us.

i hope that the ht and other media outlets pay attention to this incident as it is totally indicative of the atmosphere that exists under greenspan and his cronies.

Laffy,
A washed up has-been with 3 banners hanging?

A little respect for the accomplishment, if not the man. Tucker has as much right to his opinion as you or I do to ours. Doesn’t he?

And no, I don’t want him back either, I’m just not going to bash him here.

I would encourage all fans to arrive at the next game with a t-shirt in their pocket that says one of two things…FIRE SAMPSON or BRING BACK BOBBY.

At the start of the second half everyone should put on their t-shirt…it would be interesting to see how they would handle asking a sold out crowd to remove their shirts…

A lot of kids were asked to turn their “Fire Mike Davis” shirts inside out. I feel like it is a violation of free speech, but it also doesn’t send the greatest message to the players. Maybe the shirt should read, “Dunk it D.J.” or “Go Hoosiers” and you know be generally motivational.

I don’t think they should be censored though, but it is a dumb shirt either way.

Hey Tucker….Lawyer up! Sounds like your freedom of speech rights have been violated. I see you with GREAT season tickets for life!

Can’t wait to see the t-shirt fodder at the BTT!
