Missouri football players strike to demand president’s resignation


A group of black University of Missouri football players said on Saturday they will “no longer participate in football-related activities until President Tim Wolfe resigns,” following a series of racist incidents on campus.

It’s unclear how many of the black student-athletes have agreed to strike, though they seem to have the support of Head Coach Gary Pinkel and many non-black players
