NCAA Issues Statement on Removal of Confederate Flag in South Carolina
9 Jul, 2015
"We commend South Carolina lawmakers for taking this action to remove the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds,” noted Kirk Schulz, NCAA Board of Governors chair and Kansas State University president. “For nearly 15 years we have specifically protested the flag by not allowing states like South Carolina to host pre-selected NCAA championships. With this impending change, and consistent with our policy, South Carolina may bid to host future NCAA championships once the flag no longer flies at the State House grounds."
