Actual question... Has an active college football player come out? At least a major college starter? IIRC Sam came out post season/pre draft

I was just thinking about this, and I don't think it has happened before.

If I recall correctly Sam didn't come out until after the season and came out to his teammates before the bowl game. I believe most teammates said they already knew prior to him coming out to the team. Could be mistaken tho.

it's a great thing and hopefully it emboldens other gay football players to be open about this to their teammates, but it doesn't fit my definition of "shocking". it would be more shocking if our team of 120 football players didn't have a single gay guy on it.

Yeah that would be very shocking. Hopefully it gets to the point where all players that are gay feel it can be known that they are gay and they can be open about it.

Very awesome that he felt accepted by the team and Snyder.
Not very good at this BBS'in thing.

good for Scott. i hope his courage improves the lives of others.
I think what my friend Mitch is trying to say is that true love is blind.

We'll rarely hear about this once the season starts.

is this the "shocking" thing re: a starter on the team? if so, :yawn:

It's undoubtedly huge news, it's the lead story on espn.com right now, this will be gigantic national news this evening.

its awesome that this is happening but to say its gigantic news is dumb, these are the top stories on ESPN's front page...

    Cubs get Quintana from ChiSox for prospects
    Sources: Pelicans meet with free agent Rondo
    Venus fights off Konta, reaches Wimbledon final
    Freeze disappointed by timing of Nutt lawsuit
    Lonzo not in negotiations with Nike, LaVar says
    Vegas wins on Cubs fans' uncashed bet slips
    Law's midseason top 50 MLB prospects

i'm just really happy about this situation. proud that k-state can be associated with acceptance, proud that the team accepted him, proud that snyder reacted the way he did, and proud that no one went public with it for two years.

selfishly, i'm glad that i get to point to this to prove maybe k-staters are less hayseedy then some think. the reaction i've seen on twitter has been 99% positive. even Wabash Station is overwhelmingly voicing their support. i'm looking forward to the attention that we will get this season, maybe even increase our tv coverage.

go cats.

Have not read most of the coverage, but what has Snyder said if anything?

Btw, I'm not shocked the team has a gay player, and I'm even less surprised the team and public reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. But I do agree with those that say this is a pretty big deal. This is good for KSU and great that Scott can be honest with himself and the team.

Who knows if it will make a bit of difference in the football field, but I know this: If we are good like we should be, the media will be all over our nuts with the great storylines this team has.

Not sure what you're arguing for or against but when I posted that Scott's video was on the top of the page on espn.com. His story is currently on the front page of CNN.com and nbcnews.com

I don't know Scott but you can tell that he is such a Kansas kid. He's me but probably lived terrified half of his life and isn't any more because he's surrounded by good people in Kansas and we should all be thankful for that.
