    That will open a can of worms.
    Let’s see what happens if anyone tries to put a conservative patch on their uniform. Only pro left patches will be allowed I’m sure. This opens the doors for a lot of problems.
    Remember the Tebow rule? Couldn’t have messages on your eye black. Bible verses were too offensive.

    I just really want sports to stay sports during the games. By all means, share your opinions but please do it outside of field of play.

    Yeah, why now? Tebow couldn’t write John 3:16!

    They’re all gonna write that BLM crap?

    If I see any Gamecock players kneel, I will turn that shit off so fast.

    I watch sports to get away from all the political crap and life issues for a few hours. I don't want to hear left views or right views. Just let them play a ball game.

    Black lives matter to me, but I disagree with the organization’s views overall. I’m a Christian and they have anti-Christian beliefs. I attend a multi-racial church and diversity is beautiful. I just know that this is going to bring division and anyone who tries to wear something with a conservative opinion will be judged harshly. It’s the world we live in.

    The players are not in the field for the anthem so that shouldn’t be a problem.

    Preach it my brother. I concur, as Christians we need to pray against the evil in our society.

    Yes, this is true, which is pathetic and sad. They’re so close to socialist views it makes me SICK!

    Apparently it would be subject to approval by each conference. Let the left-wingers in the PAC-12 do all of that. Hopefully Sankey has more sense than to alienate a huge number of SEC fans if he allows intertwining political beliefs and college football. Does he?

    Residents around Rosewood want to paint the street with another giant BLM with rainbow in the middle. Doesn't the city or state have control over the streets? I guess anyone should be able to paint message on the street even if the majority doesn't like it.

    I couldn't care any less about what's on the jerseys. So I don't have a dog in this fight. But he would alienate even more by not allowing it.

    Because some don't agree with their operation as explained. Why can't you pick a street and paint what ever you feel? I'm betting there would be police to grab you and take you directly to jail. I remember when BLM first came up and one of their first marches, their pitch, Pigs in a blanket fry'em like bacon. They used the Floyd murder to cease money and power. So no, I don't like big painted streets with false prophets as heroes.

    It’s not uniform (verb) if the uniforms (noun) are different.

    What does that have to do with it? Are Confederate Flag patches gonna be worn?
    Uh no, so that’s changing the subject.

    The subject is .....most people in this country are not rascist, believe in God, do not support socialism, anarchy, communism and lawlessness....and do not support the oft-displayed plain pure hate for the United States of America. Most people are actually not sheep, they are instead too nice, too uncomfortable with conflict, or just plain too busy trying to make a living to deal with fighting cancel culture. Unfortunately their indifference or shyness from the issue has allowed Anarchist and Socialist to breed and capture large quantities of folks and use them in their quest to take down not just the U.S.- but world order.

    It has almost gone too far. I can tell you with 100% certainty that there has never been a country on this earth with the guiding principle’s this country does, and once it does go too far- there probably never will be again...to amount to anything...as hell will break loose when those who have been too busy and indifferent can no longer afford to ignore it and hope it goes away by being nice.

    No, I don't like groups rioting, blocking interstate highways and threatening to kill police.

    Me too, brace yourself. These kids are going to bite the hand that feeds them. They're going to kill the thing that could possibly make them financially independent.

    I'd be willing to bet that 70% of college football fans attending and supporting schools in the south won't really appreciate this.

    I think this opens a huge can of worms. Will only PC, pro left phrases be adopted?? Can you put Bible verses on your patch??? I tune into sports as an escape to politics, don't like it in the pro sports. Certainly don't think it should be adopted by college's.
