ANN ARBOR, MI (WNEM/AP) -
University of Michigan Athletic Director David Brandon said he plans to send an invite to an Oklahoma kindergartner to a future Wolverines home game, after the boy was chastised for wearing a UM shirt.
"We'd like to thank him for being a big Michigan fan," Brandon said during a presentation to the Detroit Economic Club Wednesday. "I'm going to send him a T-shirt."
Shannon Barton said that the Wilson Elementary School principal asked her 5-year-old son, Cooper, to turn the inside of his shirt outward last week. Barton says he changed behind a tree on the playground.
Barton says Cooper was told he could only wear University of Oklahoma or Oklahoma State University shirts because of the school's dress code. The dress code allows Oklahoma college apparel to be worn but bars other schools' clothing. It was created in 2005 with the help of an anti-gang task force.
What about the new UM T-shirt? Brandon had one created just for Barton.
The T-shirt is a blue and maize Michigan football shirt, but when it's turned inside out, the word Michigan still appears.
"We're going to invite he and his parents to come for a game and we'd like to put him up on the big board," Brandon said. He also called the school's dress code legislation "a bunch of crap."
The school district says it will review its dress code policy on college sports apparel.
