Missouri situation shows power of sports to bring enormous change



... When the Missouri Tigers announced over the weekend that they would not practice, would not lift weights, would not watch film and will not play a game until Wolfe resigned, this exploded into a hot-button national story. National news organizations flocked to campus and set up shop, with live shots against a backdrop of a protestor tent city next to the school’s iconic columns. Not ideal optics for the school president to contend with.

And by mid-morning Monday in central Missouri, Wolfe was done contending. He was instead tendering his resignation.

No way that happens this fast without the leverage the football team provided. They were big men on campus, indeed. College athletes should feel empowered by what happened at Missouri – although with great power also comes great responsibility to use it wisely and appropriately ...

Mizzou And Yale Show Why It’s Time To Burn Universities To The Ground




... The universities have done this to themselves. They created the whole phenomenon of modern identity politics and Politically Correct rules to limit speech. They have fostered a totalitarian microculture in which conformity to those rules is considered natural and expected. Now that system is starting to eat them alive, from elite universities like Yale, all the way down to, er, less-than-elite ones like Mizzou.

They created this Frankenstein monster, and it’s up to them to kill it before it kills them ...

University of Missouri professor calls for 'muscle' against reporter as tensions with media rise



Video of a tense exchange between reporters and protestors on Monday at the University Missouri has caught widespread attention after a communications professor called for "muscle" to remove a cameraman.

The scene happened on the university's campus at a demonstration by Concerned Student 1950, a student group that has been calling attention to racial issues at the university and demanding the resignation of university administrators.

Tim Wolfe, president of the University of Missouri system, and Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin have agreed to step down ...

Missouri Hunger Strike Student Jonathan Butler Speaks Out



... Butler, who ended his strike today, asked students and the media to not focus on his hunger strike, but instead on the issues that made students feel this action was necessary.

Butler is a member of the ConcernedStudent1950 protest organization, which says it has represented every black student at the university since 1950, when the first black student was admitted. The group released a list of demands Oct. 20 that included Wolfe's removal, as a part of a protest over the way the university handles racial harassment. Butler's hunger strike was in support of that protest ...

University of Missouri president resigns amid more student athlete activism



... “If there is one large takeaway from all that has gone on at Mizzou in the past few days, it’s that student-athletes, and football players in particular, are no longer just names and numbers,” the online sports website Bleacher Report wrote Monday. “They are a powerful group that is just scratching the surface on their potential for societal change inside and outside their university communities. More to the point, players are now combining that power with an unfiltered medium in social media” ...
