I’ve long felt that black guys can do pretty well career-wise out of learning sports with few blacks in them, like tennis or soccer (in the U.S.) and going into instructing. From the Yale Daily News:

Meredith allegedly used players to write his grad school papers
BILL GALLAGHER & SKAKEL MCCOOEY 9:46 PM, MAR 16, 2019

STAFF REPORTERS

As Yale continues to come to grips with the news that former head coach of the Women’s Soccer Team Rudy Meredith allegedly accepted bribes to help non-soccer-playing Yale applicants obtain “recruit” status in admissions, new allegations of misconduct have arisen regarding Meredith’s conduct outside of the scandal.

Two former Yale women’s soccer players — who requested anonymity given the sensitivity of the situation — told the News that while pursuing a master’s degree at Ohio University, Meredith allegedly pressured members of the Yale women’s soccer team to not only edit his academic papers but also to write significant parts of them. Meredith received his degree in recreation and sports science and coaching education in 2018, the same year he resigned from his position for undisclosed reasons. …

… Both sources told the News that after conducting the investigation, the athletics administration, headed at the time by former director of Athletics Tom Beckett, took no action against Meredith despite numerous complaints from team members that one of the sources said spanned many years. Beckett retired from his position as director in 2018. …

“I don’t know how it didn’t become more of an issue because to me it was a clear abuse of power,” one of the former players told the News.

According to the former player, Meredith used his position as head coach to encourage players to write his papers. Players apparently felt compelled to do so because they felt it would gain them better treatment.

Another former player told the news that Beckett — who held the position of athletic director for 23 years before his retirement in June 2018 — did not take any action to address the concerns that players had. According to the player, neither Beckett nor any other administrators reprimanded Meredith. She claimed that this alleged lack of action allowed Meredith’s “unprofessional behavior to continue and an entrenched and unbalanced power dynamic to persist in the program.” …

Before the admissions scandal — which tied Meredith to William “Rick” Singer’s college admission scam ring — Meredith had received criticism for his coaching.

“He didn’t put as much effort into his job as you would hope for from a head coach,” one of the former players said when Meredith resigned in November of last year. “He also struggled to motivate the team and connect with players in a way that would inspire us to play for him. We didn’t have practices that gave us the preparation necessary for games, in terms of fitness or scouting other teams or things in between. To put things in perspective, many players felt like they got worse over the four years playing at Yale.” …

Meredith solicited a bribe for $400,000 to admit one person as part of Singer’s college admission scam operation. Singer plead guilty last Tuesday to money laundering, racketeering, tax evasion and obstruction of justice for his role in a scheme that involved bribing coaches and exam proctors to get high school students into elite colleges. Meredith also attempted to get another applicant into Yale in exchange for $450,000 independent of Singer, which the FBI was listening in on.

He then received $4,000 from an FBI-controlled bank account, which gave the authorities evidence of wire fraud. He has worked for the FBI as a cooperating witness — designated as “CW-3” in court documents — since April 2018.

    Because he’s black, silly! In 2016 Corey Menafee, a janitor, used a broomstick to smash a stained glass window in Yale’s Calhoun College because it depicted slaves picking cotton. Yale reflexively fired him, but quickly came to its senses and rehired him. For all I know by now he’s been promoted to head Yale’s Department of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging.

    We only hear about the cops doing stuff like this when a “bad guy” is caught. What happens the other 99% of the time when they break laws and frivolously spend money on other entrapment devices that never see the light of day?

    Also, if not for the created-out-of-whole-cloth “wire fraud” general crime, where is the criminal activity in this college admissions scandal?
    Shouldn’t each school be responsible for their own oversight? Feel free to fire offending staff members, expel complicit students, and sue the Singer-types for damages.

    Yalies are the worst. By far.

    Welcome to Yale, where grammar is a foreign language.

    Parallelism is something that, really, only those with an IQ over 110 get, and only those with an IQ over 150 put into practice without fail. But someone with an IQ of 130 who is paid to look for things like this should be able to catch such a mistake every time. Apparently, the Yale Daily News (like the NYT and WaPo) presumes that it has no intelligent readers and doesn’t bother with editors.

  16. that’s ohio, not ohio state.

    so he couldn’t even write papers for a master’s in phys ed at ohio, a third rate college.

    considering there are a thousand NCAA teams it is no surprise some of the coaches are less than impressive. but you might expect better at yale.

    this is the direction brown is going though.

    also, NCAA soccer sucks, so it’s not a big deal, relatively speaking. i found soccer coaches to be among the most lax and useless in general. it’s not like big time soccer in europe or south america at all. it’s a slacker sport in the US.

    good point…plus he was a good coach…in 2017, Meredith was selected as the New England Coach of the Year after guiding the Bulldogs to an 11-4-2 overall record, the most overall wins since 2007.

    Meredith was a three-time Northeast Region Coach of the Year and guided the Bulldogs to the NCAA College Cup in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2007. In 2005, the Bulldogs won a school record 15 games, captured the first outright Ivy League title in Yale history and advanced to the third round of the NCAA College Cup for the first time. The Bulldogs were ranked 13th in the final NSCAA/adidas national poll, not bad for an ivy league school.

    There are reports that non-Muslim women are voluntarily veiling and that a Muslim call to prayer will be blared nationally. As one-off gestures reacting to a tragedy these seem harmless enough. The thing is, there are no gestures for white or non-Muslim victims, certainly not national events announced by the head of state.
    And there’s the multiple people who are being treated like criminals and possibly sentenced to more than a decade in prison because they watched a video. This, as governments refuse to investigate or properly prosecute extreme violence by Muslims.

    Hysteria grips New Zealand, something to be expected when women rule. Their emotions crowd out good sense. The virtue signaling white women are especially ridiculous. You can convey empathy without donning a hijab.

    As of Thursday, at least two people had been charged with sharing that video via social media, under a law that forbids dissemination or possession of material depicting extreme violence and terrorism. Others could face related charges in connection with publicizing the terrorist attack, under a human-rights law that forbids incitement of racial disharmony.

    While freedom of expression is a legal right in New Zealand, the parameters are more restrictive than the First Amendment guarantees in the United States. New Zealand’s Department of Internal Affairs includes a chief censor, an official who has the authority to determine what material is forbidden.

  46. Remember this one from not-so-long ago?

    The University of North Carolina academic-athletic scandal involved alleged fraud and academic dishonesty committed at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).[1] Following a lesser
    scandal that began in 2010 involving academic fraud and improper benefits with the university’s football program, two hundred questionable classes offered by the university’s African and Afro-American Studies department (commonly known as AFAM) came to light. While initially the media focused more on the implications for the famous UNC men’s basketball program, the entire university was placed on probation by its accrediting organization.

    An internal investigation by the university released in 2011 and another investigation commissioned by former North Carolina governor Jim Martin in 2012 found numerous academic and ethical issues with the AFAM department, including unauthorized grade changes and faculty signatures, a disproportionate number of independent study class offerings relative to other departments, and an over-representation of student-athletes enrolled in such classes. Then in 2014 began charges and counter-charges between university officials and former learning specialist Mary Willingham, including disputes about statistics and methods of analysis by Willingham alleging that certain student-athletes are not academically qualified for college.[2] As a result of these revelations, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools placed the university on probation for one year, endangering the university’s regional accreditation. Losing accreditation would have resulted in the loss of any federal funding or support.

    What I was surprised to learn during this whole admissions scandal is kids of famous Hollywood celebs or kids of prominent rich people actually have to go through the admissions process like everyone else. I’d always assumed schools jump at bringing in actor kids (like actor kids: Jodie Foster at Yale, Brooke Shields at Princeton, Matt Damon at Harvard, etc.) or actors’ kids. I mean, for me if I’m the kid of William H. Macy I’m gonna assume I can breeze into a USC or NYU with even a C average and piss-poor SAT scores once they know who my dad and mom are. And if I worked hard in high school getting up to a B average and did SAT prep to get scores in the 1200 range I’d start assuming the Ivies is where I need to be.

    A black guy coaching the women’s soccer team? Unless this dude is gay, we’re going to be hearing about some #MeToo accusations in 3, 2….

  63. I get the impression that college sports is pretty corrupt anyway.

    Some years ago my niece was recruited on a scholarship to play for a college team known as the Wildcats (a common name for academic sports teams including my local high school, though this college was in another state).

    She was a pretty good player, a goalkeeper who had already been a team member of two national championship winning adult club teams and had won a number of international caps and played in Olympic qualifying games while still a teenager prior to her college career.

    However at her college she was assigned alternating goalkeeping duties with another girl who my niece reports was supplying the male team coach with blow jobs, which my niece was unwilling to do–even though the entire remainder of the team wanted her as the permanent goalkeeper since she was clearly a much better player.

    After two years my niece was fed up with the situation and gave up her 4-year full scholarship and transferred to another college on the other coast where the coach knew her and admired her play, but did not have any play to play requirements. She only got a partial scholarship, as that was all that was available. Here she did very well and in one game almost single-handed helped her team to beat the #1 ranked women’s college team at the time by making no less than 16 saves of goal-bound shots.

    On the basis of this she was signed for the ill-fated professional women’s soccer league, which folded almost immediately, and she returned to her home country where she continued to play international ladies soccer for some years, including a successful run in the European championship.

    This was almost 20 years ago, but no doubt the original college coach is still getting his blow jobs from new generations of aspiring players.

    New Zealand is having a national mental breakdown. The country has ceased to be a democracy overnight.

    New Zealand is a small enough country that a military coup becomes a possibility. Now I know nothing at all about the New Zealand military, and it’s probably as pozzed as the Swedish military. But we are long, long overdue for a nationalist, military takeover in a European or Anglosphere nation to put an end to globalist meddling. Might set off a chain reaction, too.

    My niece’s experience in college basketball was that white players don’t get to play in the games. They’re just there to sweat it out in practice. The black players don’t have to show for practice or workouts, but they get all the minutes in the games.

    The coach was a hardass lesbian and my niece quit after the first year. She had fun and got into incredible shape, but she left even more racist and right-wing than when she started. Completely backwards from what all these liberals say they want.

    Remember how O.J. reacted on walking in on his ex-wife with another man? Even if that man was allegedly just a friend? That’s the black Big Man mentality on steroids; he still owns the woman even if he doesn’t own the woman.

    I’ve seen it myself in many walks of life, especially if a black guy considers me on his level of power/accomplishment , and therefore he can be open with me (e.g. same position in a company/team).

    It was here, last year, that school counselor Janet Spilman and teacher Katherine Bell dreamed up a scheme: They would get every eligible senior to apply to college — any college. “It wasn’t just the 4.0s,” Bell told me in December, sitting in the light-filled front office. “It was the 2.0s and everyone who was within one year … of being eligible” to apply. In the end, they wrangled about 400 students into the school’s two computer labs, sat them down and walked them through the application process.

    The number of Hmong students on campus grew exponentially, from 153 in 2005 to 1,075 11 years later. But they were rarely graduating within four years. None of the Hmong students who began at Sacramento State in 2007 or 2008 graduated within four years. In 2016, just 1.3 percent of the Hmong students who started four years prior graduated. (The university’s overall four-year graduation rate is about 14 percent.)

    At some point, are people going to connect the two? It doesn’t matter if these students are white, black, red or orange, when you make kids with 2.0 go to college, this is the result – high dropout rates. Thanks to grade inflation, even kids with 3.0 should be thinking about vocational schools. Those 2 high school dingbat teachers actually think they’re doing these kids a service, by channeling anyone who could fog a mirror to go to college, regardless of aptitude or interest, when in fact they are just setting them up to fail, and getting them into debt.

    Thanks to the left’s stupidity on sending everybody to college, we are saddled with $1 Trillion in student loans and a large % of unemployable SJWs with useless degrees. Even after 2 years of college they are too good for any blue collar jobs, so we have to import more immigrants to do the dirty work. Why can’t we just channel these kids to vocational schools to learn a trade?

    there’s nothing unusual about this at all. it happens every year in every sport. players come in from high school, then get worse after a few years in NCAA play.

    there’s 8 or 9 sports in national play. that means there’s a LOT of NCAA teams. that means there’s a lot of coaches. many of them suck. they don’t work hard and are just collecting a paycheck. top national recruits come in from a great program when they are 18, go to the wrong NCAA team, then by 21 they are worse than they were in high school.

    i think non-sports people are under the impression every coach is working hard and giving maximum effort. that couldn’t be further from the truth for some of these guys.

    The civilians(= Elorgs) will have to overcome “compliance” which has been drummed into their head by the Morlocks.

    A Navy Captain’s pension is close to $100k a year depending on time served. Doesn’t sound like much of a punishment to me to be busted from an Admiral down to a Captain.

    More to the point, who’s going to argue with the fencing coach?

    You said they seem level-headed on the surface, which is more of everybody’s first impression of all Scandinavian social focus in policy.

    FIFY.

    understandable reaction to unpublicized threats from ISIS. They’re avoiding a big revenge attack by doing this.

    This is not how you avoid big revenge attacks.

    Publicize the threat.

    Let them come.

    Bombs away.

    This was the self-stereotype of the Japanese too. The idea that they’re good with technology is new and, creepily enough, derived from their own analysis of losing WWII: the Americans beat us because of all those wonderful toys, so let’s get handy with a graduated cylinder. Reading Tsuji’s account of the invasion of British Malaya one is struck by all the Japanese militarists going off and doing things on their own. How are any fascistic totalitarian militarists, especially those in uniform, doing anything without orders?
    They need an airstrip on territory that is currently French, so Tsuji just grabs some construction materials and workers and builds it without asking anybody. The local commander knew nothing about it, Tsuji waited until that guy had to go north for a meeting. Tsuji’s friend recognizes that they have almost no intel about the area so he just gets up and leaves. Months later he shows back up with valuable information and maps, but that wasn’t a mission, he wasn’t ordered to do that, he just did it. When Matsuoka, the Japanese Molotov, was finally thrown out of the Konoe government, it was because he had spontaneously shared new secret plans with the Germans — because he felt like it. At one point the war almost started early because some Japanese soldiers working across a river from some Western soldiers just started shooting at them. The motive slogan of the Tojo government was this idea that sometimes you have to just dive right into a big task without a plan, the idea was that willingness to get your feet wet was more important that dotting your i’s, and will would carry you through.

    This sounds like my company.

    Just add “nobody wrote down the meeting minutes, so someone will complain about a decision later that he took himself”

    Submit is a transitive verb.

    Meredith received his degree in recreation and sports science and coaching education.
    Isn’t this the new STEM degree everyone’s talking about?

    Yes indeed! Blacks have come a long way from “Plaques for Blacks”.

    Very evil and bad. My sympathies. Kinda proves Whisky’s theme about spoiled white women being the enemies of western civilization. At this point NZ is a fenced off (via oceans) Eloi Island.

    America where I live gets inundated by illegal aliens. This is not the case for NZ. You consciously allow in your destroyers. And your female PM goes on a Hijab-a-thon.

    Matter of fact the first few Bing hits for “PM goes on a Hijab” are the Prime Minister of New Zealand.

    Now Reg, you left out the best part:

    It seems Ol’Skakel McCooey comes from a long line of folks who know to use sex and connections to get what they want.

    From the November 4, 2013 Daily Mail:

    “Sister of Kennedy widow ‘had illegitimate son and scandalous affair with Haarper’s Bazaar publisher and didn’t care who knew’ “

    “Book claims Ann Skakel McCooey had an affair with William M. Fine in 1960”

    Does NZ still have an air force? I recall they abolished it (or at least the combat wing) some years ago.

    Be careful what you wish for. The majority of the NZ army is made up of Maori and other Polynesians.

    I mostly agree with this, but the toxic media culture emanating from the U.S. also bears some blame. People all over the world are now as obsessed with racial drama as Americans, but without the corrective reality check of living in close proximity to large numbers of NAMs.

    Your bank reports any deposit over $10,000 to the federal government. If you make a string of $9000 deposits you can be investigated for attempting to structure payments to avoid government scrutiny.
