Where'd the banner go?

Late last week, MU hung the signature banners -- stating each of the university's core values -- from The Columns.  In the center was a new banner for Green Dot, a program run through the Rape and Sexual Violence Prevention (RSVP) Center.  By the time SEC Nation went to air Saturday morning, the Green Dot banner was gone with little explanation.  While we don't know if the decision to remove it was the choice of the university or the network, we'll discuss whether it should have come down, or if the show should have simply been about football.

Driving live on the air

Technology makes it possible for television reporters to go live in ways they never could have before.  But, does having the ability to do something mean we should?  It's a great debate after a WDAF-TV reporter runs a red light live on the air.
