I actually saw these guys outside The Sprint Center during the NCAA tournament games in Kansas City. I guess that was sort of a home game for them. With everybody avoiding them on the sidewalk it looked like they’d seen a Westboro production before.
Ole Miss is one of five NCAA schools — joining Alabama from the SEC — to make the picket list.
