To the Editor,
It’s been a long, hot summer unlike any we’ve ever known. The slightest whiff of fall in the early mornings takes many spirits almost immediately to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. To be clear, we all want football.
However, the University of Mississippi should immediately reconsider and abandon use of the #WeWantToPlay hashtag and associated content on social media. Public health decisions should not be subject to politically-tinged pressure campaigns. Moreover, the University of Mississippi should not use its official social media properties to engage in them.
