The entire Missouri football team seems to be standing in support of the player strike that was announced Saturday night by a group of black players via Twitter. 

Amid racial tension that has been building at the University of Missouri, the players posted a message declaring that they would be boycotting all football activities until university president, Tim Wolfe, steps down. As of Sunday morning, it appears the entire team - white and black - is united in this fight, according to a photo posted by head coach Gary Pinkel.

This is a big statement from the football team - staff and players alike. Missouri beat writer David Morrison was able to speak with team spokesman Chad Moller Sunday, who had this to say about the photo:

It will be very interesting to see how this plays out, but it's great to see the entire team standing together for something it believes in.
