In the past twelve months, the state of Missouri has watched its NFL team depart for Los Angeles while its lone Division I-FBS team nearly went on strike due to racism on campus; they went 5-7 on the season. The two FCS programs? Missouri State’s football team went 1-10, while SEMO went 4-7. Donald Trump collectively praised these teams while declaring “Missouri: good football teams! Came from nowhere!”
Trump then threatened to attend a football game—we have to assume he meant in Columbia—if Missouri’s citizens vote for him.
