Whether you agree or disagree with the school’s decision to try and cleanse it’s palate of the bad taste left from the Aaron Hernandez mess is moot (UF also removed photos of the accused murderer in June) because, whether he gets exonerated or not, it’s the school administration’s decision, and it should be respected. As an aside, how wholly appropriate is it that Hernandez’s commemorative brick is right alongside Maurkice Pouncey’s in light of recent events?
