Another NCAA Headscratcher

This week the University of Iowa wanted to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Chris Street. Street was a member of the Hawkeyes basketball team who died in a car accident. The university petitioned the NCAA to allow all the players to wear Street’s name on the backs of their jerseys. The NCAA denied the request. Keep in mind they let Xavier and Providence do it to honor the Sandy Hook victims. I’m not denying that the tragedy was awful, but Xavier is in Cincinnati and Providence as of this moment is still in Rhode Island. Sandy Hook is in Connecticut. Iowa wants to honor someone who played at the NCAA level at Iowa!

They also routinely let schools like Oregon wear multiple hideous things like this:

oregon

 

 

 

 

Or they will let teams wear camo unis like these:

Camo-College-Basketball-Uniforms-for-Veterans-Day-Weekend

 

 

 

 

Is there a Citizen who can explain this nonsense to me?

Carry on, Citizens!
