Penn State players were asked by team staff to remove T-shirts reading “Chains, Tattoos, Dreads, & WE ARE” before their game Saturday at No. 17 Iowa.The handful of Nittany Lions who displayed the shirts in pregame warmups was responding to a letter that safety Jonathan Sutherland received last week from a fan criticizing his dreadlocks.“While we are supportive of our students expressing themselves in a thoughtful manner, they are expected to wear team-issued apparel on game day. We asked our students to remove the shirts out of an abundance of caution for NCAA compliance,” Penn State athletic said in a statement.Penn State coach James Franklin opened his weekly press conference on Tuesday with a passionate defense of Sutherland, praising him as “the ultimate example of what our program is all about.” ___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/Collegefootball and http://www.twitter.com/AP_Top25
