5-year-old in Oklahoma forced to turn Michigan shirt inside out at school

CREATED Aug. 21, 2012

Cooper Barton is a 5-year-old kindergarten student in Oklahoma. Like so many in the area, Barton is a college football fan. Unlike many in the area, however, Barton is a Michigan Wolverines fan. Apparently his appreciation for the maze and blue did not go over well with school administrators.

Barton wore his favorite Michigan shirt to school and was forced to turn it inside-out. Most interesting to me is that the schools dress policy forbids any team college team apparel outside of Oklahoma schools. Imagine if he wore a Texas shirt! Did I mention that Barton is 5?!

Every once in a while stories like this pop up. I keep waiting for it to happen in Green Bay with a kid wearing a Bears jersey.
