Easy First Amendment Cases

Sometimes, they really would be easy. The AD at the University of Arkansas announced today via Twitter a new policy requiring that students get approval in advance from the university for any signs they want to display at football games this season. Obviously, the school is trying to prevent any signs referring to the mess with Bobby Petrino, his mistress, and his motorcycle.

But does anyone at this public institution playing football in a public stadium really believe they could get away with a policy requiring advance state approval in order to speak? Or are they counting on no one challenging it?
