Over two dozen University of Missouri football players are currently boycotting until the Missouri System’s president, Tim Wolfe is terminated or resigned due to Wolfe’s response to racist incidents occurring on campus. Several players made their announcements via Twitter Saturday night. They’ve also taken to Twitter to voice their stance on the matter.

The players do not approve nor agree with the response Wolfe has given in light of recent incidents. Last month a swastika was drawn with human feces on the wall of a dorm. Apparently a student organization,  ConcernedStudent1950, approached Wolfe’s car during the school’s homecoming parade about the recent events. Wolfe has since issued a statement apologizing and saying he was caught off guard when approached. He has made no mention of resigning.
