Kansas basketball coach Bill Self on Monday addressed Missouri football star Michael Sam’s decision to announce that he is gay: “There’s a reason why Missouri had such a great season in football,” Self said. “… if you have the confidentiality of your entire team, in a way in which they did, that means you know they got each other’s back.
