        I guess this settles the starting QB question.

          Bentley posted the same thing on his Twitter account.  Some are showing support without actually holding out…

          I’d link the Tweet, but I don’t know how…

            Yes, he posted the sign, but also said he’s playing. I guess all that tells us is that not everyone that retweets it, plans to boycott.

      Bye bye WSU recruiting.  I don’t agree with all the players are asking for, but to kick them off the team is a terrible look.

        Remember when (I believe it was 11) players for Wyoming wanted to wear protest arm bands against BYU?  They were kicked off the team and their program never recovered.

          I imagine there are bigger reasons why Wyoming football is not a powerhouse.

            Wyoming was a pretty good WAC team back in the 70s. I can’t say that that was the reason they fell off, but as far as mid majors went, they were pretty good.

      Woah! Mike Leach is not at WSU anymore? Totally missed that.

      Maybe an unpopular opinion around here, but I agree with the article that the list of demands is mostly reasonable and really symbolic – apart from the 50% revenue thing which is not happening. And ffs, if we can’t give players assurances around their heath during a pandemic, we should be ashamed. I think the smart administrations will make a gesture to negotiate. WSU looks terrible here and this will cause turmoil for the team. Great! No love for kewgers!

        I don’t think it’s an unpopular opinion. It seems like a lot of people believe that most of the demands are reasonable. The 50% being the main one that isn’t. Also, forcing Stanford to bring back the sports they cut isn’t really reasonable either.

          The other unreasonable one is demanding that the Pac12 football conference go back in time to when these players faced racial injustice in southern California on 6th street when that one racist white male called them the n-word. How the hell is it the Pac12’s responsibilty to fix racial injustice??

        Some misinformation going on around this (though I don’t mind WSU getting trashed in recruiting for it). Here’s the actual audio that was illegally recorded and posted by the player. He called the coach to inform him that he’s opting out of the season because he has sickle cell anemia and is worried about COVID so coach told him to clean out his locker and don’t join workouts to keep him and team safe. But he did speak a bit harshly about the movement and could have used more tact there.

      “Eliminating lavish spending and facility expendatures.” Now athletes are uniting against that which helped to recruit your ass to said school???  This is brilliant…

        I think the goals of the current uprising in the States may be lost in translation.

      Back in the ’60s, Wyoming was a powerhouse. One year they beat Florida St. in the Sun Bowl. The following year they went to the Sugar Bowl. Yeah, they were good.
