Arkansas to Pay Tribute to 9/11 with Patriotic Midfield Logo (Picture)
There are sure to be plenty of tributes to 9/11 across the sporting world this weekend, and I hope there are no fines that come along with those tributes. The line between what is allowed by league standards and what is morally correct should be blurred on the 10th anniversary of the most tragic event in our nation’s history. We already commended Lance Briggs for wearing cleats and gloves that pay tribute to 9/11, and I think I speak for everyone when I say it would be a joke for the league to fine him — or anyone else — for doing something like that.
CBSSports.com’s Eye on College Football blog passed along another awesome tribute to us on Thursday, this time from Arkansas. The Razorbacks have decided to tweak their midfield logo for Saturday’s game against New Mexico to make it patriotic. Check it out:
As ArkansasSports360.com points out, Razorback fans are also being asked to wear red or white depending on what section they are seated in. The student section has been given blue shirts to wear. There are sure to be plenty more tributes like this one popping up throughout the weekend, but this is a good place to set the bar.
