‘Take It Down Now’ campaign requesting NCAA to not support Medal of Honor Bowl

News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Members of the “Take It Down Now” campaign have written a letter to the NCAA, requesting that the group withdraw support for the Medal of Honor Bowl until the Confederate Naval Jack flag is removed from The Citadel’s campus.

After the Confederate flag was removed from Statehouse grounds in Columbia, the NCAA lifted its ban on pre-determined events in South Carolina. The Medal of Honor Bowl then announced it would switch from a college football all-star game to a standard bowl game.

Members of the “Take It Down Now” group say the Confederate flag in Summerall Chapel must come down. Group member James Stevens says the group is asking the NCAA to not support a bowl game until the flag comes down.
