Then-coach Gary Pinkel (center) celebrated with his Missouri Tigers football team after beating BYU on Nov. 14 at Arrowhead Stadium.

Rick Brattin and Kurt Bahr have proposed a bill that would cancel the scholarships of healthy student-athletes who refuse to play and fine coaches who endorse such actions.
