ESPN to Honor Mizzou Football Players

From Campus Reform:

The Mizzou football team will be honored with an ESPY during this year’s ESPN award ceremony, but not for its performance on the field.

Rather, the 5-7 2015 team, which lost a few of its final games because it refused to play, will be acknowledged for its social activism efforts.

As Campus Reform reported in November, the Mizzou Tigers refused to play another game until a list of demands was met by the administration, which included the resignation of former president Tim Wolfe, who eventually gave in.
