#ScholarshipAlert - Governor: "I wasn't going to live in a state where..."

The Governor of Missouri showed up to speak to Dave Steckel's team at Missouri State recently.

While imparting words of wisdom & wishing the Bears the best of luck this season, Governor Jay Nixon took the opportunity to take on one of the great injustices of modern society.

"I wasn't going to live in a state where we have kickers, punters and long snappers that don't get any scholarship money. That's crazy!"

Ladies and gentlemen, we need more leaders who are willing to fight for the rights of these great Americans. Bravo Governor Nixon, Bravo.

Roll the tape and as Coach Stec likes to say, Bear Up!
