Obviously nobody agrees with racism, but this program and the U of M's athletic program has been plagued with sexual assaults, domestics violence, and violence upon fellow students. Kind of strange to get preachy......

Two out of every three stories on College Gameday are about a player that was raised by his mother and grandma. Imagine the power of a message on the back of a jersey that said "Take Care of Your Children." It would be powerful and influential and could initiate real change, but that is the conversation that is not allowed to happen. Oh well, just a small interjection of truth in a world that hates it.

Or how about "Graduate High School".

That would be brilliant, but would never happen as it doesn't fit the narrative.

Racism is awful and needs to be eradicated.

Putting "end racism" on the back of our football jerseys is pointless and will do nothing to address the actual problem.

I think it's more about awareness and the fact that many people who are more apathetic about the issue can be urged to speak out when they hear or see it.

Seems like the people who are most upset about such a simple thing....are folks who don't want people to take notice. You could ask them why....but I doubt they'd give you an answer.

But putting "Take Care of Your Children" on the back of the jersey does? I'm not arguing that family dynamics and structure are a major issue in many of our low income and minority neighborhoods, but what does that saying on a back of a football jersey do? Man just let the players and program put out a positive message not something condescending to the way they were raised. If they didn't have a father/mother figure they are already mad enough most likely

Maybe it is the time to get preachy then....

"Be a Real Man" on the back of Jerseys

Meaning:
1. You stand up for what is right no matter what
2. You love people and your kindness is visible and observational
3. You make your relationships with your family solid relationships. You love your children and your wife with everything you have.
4. Work on your faith.
5. Be a better version of yourself each day.


When men stand up and do the right thing and are selfless in their lives the rest takes care of itself.

"End 80% Fatherless Households" & "Stop Committing Vastly Disproportionate amounts of Violent Crimes" doesn't have quite the same ring to it!

Figured this thread was going to go haywire pretty fast. Much anger and hate in our country. That is obvious. We are not the USA anymore.

I dont think its hate, I think that as individuals we dont take accountability for what "we" are doing. We like to talk and do all these things, but really Men in the country are not being accountable for what they are doing everyday. Until that happens there will be no change.
