Here’s some unexpected and unfortunate news for your Friday afternoon: multiple outlets are reporting that Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel will step down at the end of the season because of health reasons. In a press release, the university says Pinkel was diagnosed with lymphoma in May and will stay with the team through December 31 or until a new head coach is hired.

Sad news. Thoughts out to Pinkel, his family, and the Missouri football program. What a week for them.

    Yeah has nothing at all to do with him supporting the ousting of mizzou prez and then this entire thing turning out to be a hoax. His only health reasons is just the embarrassment disease.

    I’m sure stepping down because of health reasons will offend somebody causing them to run to their “safe zone”.

    I’m shocked I tell you, SHOCKED that he’s stepping down!! That entire campus has caved to the loony left and now they’ve appointed an ACLU LAWYER to lead the campus!

    Oh, and the guy, Michael Middleton, was also the founder of the Legion of Black Collegians who in 1969 DEMANDED from Missouri a list of demands for the betterment of the black community. Some of the same DEMANDS that have been made recently.

    Only in America baby. The Left in this country is showing its true colors on campuses all across America. There parents should be real proud of there offspring!

    I’m getting really sick of this whole war on white people. Whites are being discriminated against and its just fine, because its white people. And the blacks and their imaginary slights are plastered all over tv. And I’m a Cherokee Indian. If anyone has the right to complain…it’s the indians.

    The anarchist are winning, health reasons…. right. Don’t say to much or you will be branded a racist by these godless liberals/ communist. I’ll bet right now the next head coach is black, whether he deserves it or not. Time to end pell grants, welfare and all the other social destroying apparatuss’ the liberals ushered in. Can’t smoke in public housing but you can still be on the draw while using drugs, just wow.
