Both William Murchison and Debra Saunders have covered considerable ground today concerning the debacle at the University of Missouri which forced its President Tim Wolfe to resign yesterday after its football team refused to take the field as long as Wolfe remained at the helm amid what they viewed as his insufficient response to several racial incidents on campus.
I would only add that instead of resigning, Wolfe should have said to the football team, "You refuse to play. Fine. All students who are on the team by way of athletic scholarship are suspended effective immediately. In exchange for playing for football, we pay your tuition. Therefore all football players who refuse to take the field are in breach of their contract. The suspension will be lifted if you return to the team by the end of the week. Failure to comply will result in the revocation of your scholarship."
