Banning political ads from football games – Sep 6, 2004

from the Lincoln Journal-Star

UNL started a policy in April that would ban political advertising from Memorial Stadium. Nebraska’s Republican Party just learned about the policy two days before the game, after already spending thousands of dollars on fliers. They cried out that the policy was a violation of free speech, so the policy was suspended so that it could be clarified.

Meanwhile, Nebraska center Richie Incognito was suspended indefinitely for repeatedly violating team rules and general misbehavior.
