As I write this, there is a student on the Missouri campus who is refusing to eat until the president is removed, There has been racial taunts and abuse that has been neglected. There has been swastikas written on bathroom walls with fecal matter. There is still social unrest after what happened in Ferguson, Missouri last year. The football team has threatened to boycott the remaining games unless change is made at the University. The coach is standing by his players.
Coach Gary Pinkel has put Missouri football on the map. He's led the team to bowl wins, has coached over 25 NFL Draft picks, 7 of them being first rounders, and didn't leave the school at the first opportunity of a "better job". He decided to stay and stand by his players. When he sat in the living room of his current players during recruiting and told them he would be there for the players 4 year career, he wasn't lying. He has stood by his players side. It is good to see he is doing it once.
After looking at his twitter account from yesterday, I guess a picture does say a 1000 words!
