Oklahoma School Bans Michigan Gear
I like it. Michigan football’s resurgence is not only wearing on those folks from Ohio, but also in Oklahoma! So this school decided that a 5-year old was not allowed to don the Maize and Blue because of a policy. Said policy only allows in-state colleges’ gear to be worn, which makes a 5-year old turn his shirt so it’s inside out. Cool policy!
Michigan Wolverine football apparently is not only frowned upon in the state of Ohio, but also in Oklahoma.
An Oklahoma City 5-year-old student was forced to turn his maize and blue T-shirt inside-out by the elementary school principal, according to a report by KWTV News 9.
Although he couldn’t sport his family’s favorite school colors, he can wear an Oklahoma Sooners or Oklahoma State Cowboys shirt. Oklahoma City Public Schools only allow in-state college apparel to be worn.
The policy has the kindergartener’s mother outraged.
“They should really worry about academics. It wasn’t offensive. He’s 5,” she told News 9.
