The Missouri Tigers are going through a lot of problems with Tim Wolfe, who was the state university system president. He had been heavily criticized for his handling of several racially charged issues on campus. Plenty of people at Missouri have called for his firing or resignation and the football team took a stand.
On Saturday, a group of black football players took their stand and refused to do any more football related activities until Wolfe was removed from his role. He ended up resigning and the Missouri football team has made their mark on the situation.
Former Missouri defensive star Michael Sam reached out and showed his support for his former team.
If Mizzou is truly a family, then WE all must stand by #ConcernedStudent1950!!!

Missouri’s football team did the right thing by banding together and forcing action, although some don’t feel that it was the right way to handle it. No matter what others think, Sam and the Tigers are correct that standing together against a common problem is the right move.
Expect to hear more from this situation over the next couple weeks, but thankfully Wolfe is on his way out and all of the issues that he has caused can start to heal.
