Football T-shirt slogan stopped--By: Hannah Mikels
The Univeristy of Minnesota has stopped the production of football T-shirts with the slogan "Brew's Crew," according to kare11.com.
The slogan is a play on the name of the new coach Tim Brewster, according to kare11.com.
But the university feels the slogan is too closely related to alcohol, according to the Star Tribune.
Tom Wistrcill, associate athletics director, feels it would not be in the school's best interest to associate the school with any inference to alcohol, according to wcco.com.
The school's booster club for the football program, the Goal Line Club, was selling the T-shirts to raise money for the athletic program, according to wcco.com.
The T-shirts were originally created because of a misscommunication, according to kare11.com.
Goal Line Club President Teresa Grim said the booster club normally has to get logos on merchandise OK'd with the school, but they didn't realize it was a problem before it was too late, according to the Star Tribune.
The Goal Line Club is selling the remaining T-shirts at goallineclub.com, but further production has been stopped, according to kare11.com.
