Re: “How much of the 1st Amendment is protected on Arkansas State University football helmets

You need to let go of this idea of public property. The closest analogy is if a public university put up a bulletin board in the Student Union and let it be known it was for students to post info about groups and meetings. The board is public property. Now suppose the Baptist student group places a notice of a revival. That is private religious speech on a public bulletin board and it is perfectly legal. It would be a violation of the group's free speech if the school tried to remove it because it was religious.

ASU has designated a portion of their helmets and said the athletes can place a memorial on it as long as it meets NCAA regulations. This is actually a very well thought out solution to the situations.
