A Missouri football player Sunday told ESPN that the entire team isn't united over the decision to stop practicing because of the racism issues on the University of Missouri's campus.

"As much as we want to say everyone is united, half the team and coaches -- black and white -- are pissed," the player, who wished to remain anonymous, told ESPN. "If we were 9-0, this wouldn't be happening."

The player, who is white, spoke on the condition of anonymity because coaches told the team not to talk to the media as they thought the situation "would blow over eventually."

My thing with this is if the coach told him not to say anything so they can solve the issue, why would he even say anything? This will cause more division than anything else between the players.
