Missouri state representative files bill to revoke striking players’ scholarships


Just last month, one of the biggest controversies in the college football world was the news of Missouri’s black football players striking in response to the rising racial tensions on campus. That led to the removal of university president Tim Wolfe just a week later.

It now looks like one state representative wants the striking players punished. According to reports, one Missouri state representative has filed House Bill 1743 on Monday afternoon.

Brattin’s bill “Provides that any college athlete on scholarship who refuses to play for a reason unrelated to health shall have his or her scholarship revoked.”

Former Missouri safety, Ian Simon, a leader of the boycott, chimed in on the situation.

This is certainly an interesting situation that is surely not over by a long shot. Be sure to say with Campus Sports for the latest information on this situation.
