    Georgia’s tiny Truett McConnell University drops Nike over ad

    "Even if you live in Georgia, chances are, you never heard of Truett McConnell University. But this week the private Southern Baptist college in Cleveland, Ga....cut ties with the global apparel company, which supplies university t-shirts and other goods to the campus bookstore....students will still be allowed to wear Nike on campus"

    "another tiny school, The College of the Ozarks, also banned Nike. At a weekend women’s volleyball match, the team wore plain gray t-shirts with the school’s name printed on the back."

    "Also, this week, Kenner, La. Mayor Ben Zahn issued a...memo banning the purchase and use of any Nike products at the city's booster clubs and recreation departments."

    I think everyone in the North half of Ga. is very familiar with Truett McConnell. Fine school.
