I can only begin to imagine the shitstorm that would entail from this:
What would happen if a star college football player, particularly at a high-profile school in the deep South, wore a Black Lives Matter shirt during warmups or used a postgame media session to talk about police brutality and racial profiling rather than the game?
What would the consequences be for the school? What kind of pressure would conservative white fans put on the coach to denounce it publicly? And in turn, what would the recruiting consequences be for the coach if he tried to silence or stifle a player bringing light to an issue?
If a coach tried to silence free speech by, say, revoking a scholarship, I think there would be more consequences than just on the recruiting front.
I guess we’re lucky college football players are still in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem.
