Fifty years ago this week, 14 black members of the University of Wyoming football team met with head coach Lloyd Eaton to ask if they could wear black armbands to protest racist policies and incidents tied to upcoming opponent BYU. Instead, Eaton kicked the players off the team — ranked 12th in the country at the time — without giving them a chance to make their case, they unanimously say. The incident, coming in the wake of the civil rights movement, has drawn more attention in recent years because of other high-profile sports protests such as Colin Kaepernick's.
