Joe College, which has been to court with KU Athletics regarding the legality of some of its shirts, will close on Wednesday.
Copy and paste the link:
I think most of Joe College's stock to be tasteless, trashy and almost totally witless, but, KU's actions have ensured that I will never purchase officially licensed merchandise.
I will continue to proudly wear the colors of red, blue and yellow (Go, Superman! Go, USA!), but nothing emblazoned with a Jayhawk that puts one penny in the coffers of Kansas Athletics and KU. Those who sued Joe College into oblivion would destroy Freedom of Speech for monetary gain, and they are parasites on the University of Kansas and Lawrence. They've severely damaged our unique and symbiotic relationship.
It is censorship, pure and simple.
Perhaps the effort is in vain, but I will seek a t-shirt to buy at Joe College before Wednesday. I mean, they can't ALL be as bad as the window displays, right?
