    There was a discussion on FR about Michael Sam selling T-Shirts on his website. It got me thinking when was this website created? If it was created after he came out then he is an entrepreneirial capitalist but if it was created before then he's all about himself and his gayness. So I went to check on my local domain register and low and behold it was created October 13, 2013 but this where Sam might be in a little bit of trouble withe NCAA. The site was registered by his now agents Empire Athletes of Santa Monica, California and...

    Students at University of Missouri don't need to cram for exams that fall on Wiccan and Pagan holidays, now that the school has put them on par with Christmas, Thanksgiving and Hanukah. The university’s latest “Guide to Religions: Major Holidays and Suggested Accommodations” -- designed to help faculty know when and when not to schedule homework and exams -- lists eight Wiccan and Pagan holidays and events right alongside more mainstream occasions. It's all part of the school's effort to include everyone's beliefs, although some critics say listing every holiday associated with fringe belief systems is a bit much. [Snip]...

    A retired research assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia died of multiple stab wounds before firefighters found in his body in the trunk of a burning car Friday. Boone County Medical Examiner Valerie Rao said after an autopsy that Jeong H. Im, 72, of Columbia was stabbed several times, but she declined to elaborate. MU police yesterday named Im as the victim. His body was found in the trunk of his burning white, 1995 Honda inside the Maryland Avenue parking garage, MU police Capt. Brian Weimer said. The case was under investigation by the Mid-Missouri Major Case Squad. No...

    Game 7 and the Longhorns are on the road to take on Missouri. The big questions heading into the game; are the Horns really ready; is Colt McCoy healthy? The Longhorns came into this game 6 – 0. Hoping to make it 7 – 0 with a win against Missouri. Longhorn fans were also hoping to see Colt McCoy and the Horns step it up. Although, the Longhorns won last week, fans were left feeling their Horns were not playing their best game. With the offensive game being almost non-existent in the last two outings, fans are wondering if Colt...

    *snip* Missouri - fresh of Saturday’s 36-28 victory over Kansas in Kansas City on Saturday night - had been voted No. 1 football team in the nation in the Associated Press Top 25. And soon after the MU basketball team’s 91-52 blowout of Western Illinois on Sunday, Missouri was announced No. 1 in the all-important BCS standings. *snip* Everyone in Columbia seemed to be grinning Sunday over the football team’s first No. 1 ranking since 1960, a ranking the Tigers held for one week before being upset by Kansas. MU was ranked No. 2 by the USA Today/Coaches poll, but...

    Mizzou to distribute free condoms on campus Sunday, September 24, 2006 The Associated Press COLUMBIA, Mo. -- The University of Missouri-Columbia, will soon be the first in the Big 12 Conference to distribute free condoms in residential hall bathrooms, school officials said Friday. Health advocates said the pilot program will help lower the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and prevent unwanted pregnancies. The condoms will be placed in baskets in all dormitory bathrooms together with wallet-sized educational packets, MU's Residential Life officials said. "The impact of this, what I hope, is that we have eliminated as many barriers as possible,...

    A column by Mike Downey of the Chicago Tribune got me thinking on this subject of web sites dedicated to firing coaches. Fire Joe, the subject of Downey's wrath, has backed down a bit from its "noble" cause, and the domain owner has reserved the domain name "Keep Joe" Too bad the board of directors at Penn State didn't reserve it first. My first foray into internet activism was Blue States for Bush. I got some hate e-mails, which I expected. The e-mails I got that really troubled me usually followed this line of logic. "Your site sucks...

    COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri-Columbia's $75 million basketball venue was formally renamed Mizzou Arena on Friday, just days after the Wal-Mart heiress for whom it originally was named was accused of cheating her way through a Southern California college. The university's governing Board of Curators voted without dissent to rename Paige Sports Arena during a three-minute conference call. "All of us are happy with Mizzou," Elson Floyd, president of the four-campus university system, said after the meeting. "How can you go wrong when you talk about Mizzou?" The vote came after Bill and Nancy Laurie, parents of...
  • The Sad State of Mizzou: Why should citizens of Missouri pay for a one party university system?

    The Sad State of MizzouBy Mickey | August 29, 2003 Last spring as the semester was winding to a close, the University of Missouri College Republicans hosted New York Times’ best-selling author David Horowitz. His appearance spurred controversy on campus. Professor Miriam Golomb accused Mr. Horowitz of being a racist. Students alleged that she offered to give additional bonus points to protest Horowitz’s speech. When uproar over the alleged extra points for protesting occurred, professors came to her rescue. Instead of questioning her actions in a “Genetics and Society” class on accusing Horowitz of being a racist, people like...

    Grace Jones of St. Peters didn’t expect that her hand-held video camera would be used to capture scenes other than her nephew’s graduation yesterday. Vice President Dick Cheney speaks yesterday to graduates of the University of Missouri-Columbia College of Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources at the Hearnes Center. Standing at the southeast corner of Stadium Boulevard and Mick Deaver Memorial Drive, however, Jones shot pictures of two local groups, one denouncing Vice President Dick Cheney and the other welcoming him to Columbia. Cheney was the commencement speaker at the University of Missouri-Columbia’s College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. more...

    Activist Prof Under InvestigationBy Columbia (Missouri) Daily TribuneColumbia (Missouri) Daily Tribune | April 25, 2003 By NATE CARLISLE of the Tribune’s staff A state representative says he’s investigating whether a University of Missouri-Columbia professor offered extra credit to students who protested a conservative speaker."What I’m seeing here is an out-and-out forcing kids to adopt a certain political view, or at least say they do, so they can get a better grade," said Rep. Rod Jetton, R-Maple Hill. In a press release today, Mizzou College Republicans questioned whether MU associate biological sciences Professor Miriam Golomb offered the credit to entice students...

  • Subversives find haven in MU (Univ. of Missouri) ‘peace studies’

    Columbia Missouri Daily Tribune ^ | 3/12/03 | FReeper (Timmy)
    Editor, the Tribune: So the University of Missouri has a "peace studies" program, which uses university resources to encourage students to protest against their country and even to skip their taxpayer-funded classes to do it. Is this the same university that constantly whines that the people of Missouri are too miserly in their support for "higher" education? One wonders how many other asinine programs, departments and classes we are funding. Evidently, MU has no respect or appreciation for the sacrifices made by hard-working Missourians on its behalf. But it does explain the large number of anti-American letters to the Tribune...

    Peace e-mail at MU fuels controversy By SCOTT CHARTON of The Associated Press Published Saturday, March 1, 2003 A peace studies professor said yesterday he authorized a mass e-mail sent across the University of Missouri’s flagship campus promoting anti-war activities, including skipping classes in protest if the United States attacks Iraq. The e-mail stirred controversy because it was first sent - to thousands of students and faculty members at the Columbia campus - without the usual signature of a sponsoring campus organization. "People perceived the university was encouraging students and faculty to take off work and encourage participation in peace...
