Sit Down or Get Out: Group of Elon Students Removed from Oct.19 Football Game

Many Elon students were removed from Rhodes Stadium Saturday, Oct. 19, for standing and cheering in the students section during the football game against Chattanooga. According to Elon Athletics, a fan from the general admission section, adjacent to the student section, complained to a volunteer security officer that they could not see due to standing students. Junior Michael Lindsey was one of the students cheering in the student section. "The people in the yellow jackets came down to us at one point and they were telling us we needed to sit down or we were going to get kicked out of the game," he said. Lindsey and his friends ignored the officer and continued to cheer. Thirty minutes later, the officer returned to the student section and informed Lindsey and the other students that their day at the stadium was over. Junior Casey Brown was sitting in the student section a few seats away from Lindsey and was not pleased with how the situation was handled.
