A Bad Look for Barry

Attention past and present Bucs...your school is in the news, and not in a good way.

Click HERE for the entire article, it's an interesting read. Of course, Barry University spokespersons have denied all claims of racism against them. It looks like Barry alum may need to get some answers.
