I believe the key qualifying phrase was this: “If Northwestern is going to refuse the high road on this and instead attempt to lean into it”. If they do any more to lean into it with heads held high, a little mocking seems inevitable, especially if they can’t back it up on the field.In my 10+ years on this board, I'm pretty sure i've never disagreed with a statement more than this.
Yes...yes there is a too cruel. And this falls into that bucket.
Hopefully they’ll get solid leaders to rebuild from scratch. Seems like a new AD is needed to clean house. The current guy is a wimp, clearly not up to the job. Northwestern Athletic Director Blasts Football Staffers for ‘Tone Deaf’ Shirts Supporting Fitzgerald. Oh dear, a verbal “blast”! Anyone who ever wore those tee shirts should be fired ASAP. They knew exactly what they were doing. They’re insubordinate. Make an example of them and send a message.
