    Michael Sam received a standing ovation when he appeared on the arena video boards during Missouri's basketball game against Tennessee on Saturday.

    The All-America defensive end, who could become the first openly gay player in the NFL, later blew a kiss to the student section and shook hands with fans.

    Sam and the football team were honored at halftime for their AT&T Cotton Bowl over Oklahoma State.

    Wearing a shirt declaring "We Are All CoMo Sexuals," 51-year-old Michelle Carmichael joined more than a thousand others in forming a line of support for Sam. She didn't hesitate to answer why.

    "Because Michael Sam stood up for Mizzou his entire career and we need to stand up for him," she said.

    The shirt plays off the nickname of Columbia, Mo., where Sam announced to his teammates in August that he is gay. The NFL hopeful shared his sexuality in interviews with ESPN's "Outside The Lines" and The New York Times last Sunday.

    Glad to see the community rally around although the Comosexual name is pretty stupid.

    Did any of them give themselves a standing ovation for being heterosexuals?

    The comosexual thing is super gay.

    Como is a real term that has come about as of the past decade or so but people rarely use it. Midmo is the short name for the local mental hospital so people had to come up with a new term like Bocomo and eventually Como. The term is silly though because Im not bisexual and my preference is not limited by geography.

    Also, the student population is mostly oblivious to everything that happens outside of campus so to suggest that its one big, tightly knit family is misleading. We all like Mizzou football and basketball. Beyond that, having a townie strike up a conversation with a college student is somewhat rare
