There is nothing organic about any of this. This movement is being orchestrated by some sharp cookies who are doing a helluva job pulling the strings while not showing what their interests are in all of this. Inquiring minds would like to know.

Come on. These players thought all this up by themselves, organized it, wrote it, passed it around so everyone could make comments on the drafts, tweaked the final wording and distributed it out of their own pockets. Ummmm, no......that didn't happen. Tweeting between players does not create this level of sophisticated communication for public distribution.

I realize that Sooners' players might not be the sharpest tools in the shed, but plenty of the the other conferences have smart cookies studying at their schools.

The better question is are you actually dumb enough to imply the guys you listed are capable of creating the documents that present their demands?

Do you know what degree is required to treat the juice that comes out of that big knot on grandma's foot or talk authoritatively about the medical effects of COVID-19? It's called a MD. Doctor of Medicine

Do you know what degree is required to write documents like the ones making these inane demands? It's call a JD. Juris Doctor

Do any of those guys have even a BA or a BS? No.

OK, I've given you enough clues to figure it out for yourself.

Really?! No shit? But do the players he listed and the other undergraduate athletes bitching about their "issues" have MD's and JD's? No. Then they aren't the ones researching and writing all this crap. WTF is wrong with you Oregon fans? You're cognitive dissonance is so cross threaded you'll argue farcical points that have absolutely no basis in fact. Everything is opinion with you people and you think being intentionally obtuse somehow conveys some kind of high mindedness. Frankly, to put it on the table, you're full of crap if you think these precious darlings are doing this all by themselves.

Cal students are smart enough to put this together on their own.

You said they don't have a BA/BS. I was correcting your idiotic notion.
