    One of the striking players tweeted that "our coaches are 100% behind us."

    FYI: That story does not discuss the football players, but they are protesting the same issues. Here's a link discussing that (h/t @franticscribe): http://deadspin.com/missouri-football-players-go-on-strike-to-force-removal-1741242246

    Only a college student would think a hunger strike is a good idea.

    You're right about that, but that was the best backgrounder I could find about the issues at the school. It's the same issue. People are tweeting about it at #ConcernedStudent1950.
