At the Illinois State University vs. Bradley University basketball game, televised on Fox Midwest, a large segment of the fans wore red sweatshirts that spoke fluently of their character — or lack thereof.
The inscription on their shirts was a disgrace to the excellent ISU family and a negative reflection upon the Missouri Valley Conference, the university and the community as a whole.
The wearers may claim freedom of speech or free expression. I believe it is nothing but public vulgarity and obscene gestures and should not be allowed to continue within our educational facilities.
The inscription was “Buck Fradley” — you be the judge.
