I don’t spend much time following the university of Missouri’s football program, they’re rarely relevant nationally. But the sheer stupidity of this proposed strike has piqued my interest. The players claim they won’t take the field until the university president resigns or is removed from office. That’s beyond stupid, the university president is primarily responsible for fund raising, not for fighting whatever alleged racism they seem to think exists on campus. Let’s face it, a lot of the players aren’t there to study Shakespeare, they’re only there for football.
I predict the players will ultimately fold and they’ll play next Saturday. Maybe they’ll make a silly political statement by coming out of the tunnel with their hands up, but they’re. It going to forfeit a game and risk missing a minor bowl game.
