In late July, we’ll be publishing The Opiate of America: How College Athletics Created Black-Run America . It will collect much of what we have written on college sports, and include at least 40 percent new material. Of all the projects we’re working on, this is the most personal. This is part two (part one is here) of my response to Steve Sailer’s article on college football he published at Vdare.com.

”Special Admission” Information for Major College Football Programs
”Special Admission” Information for Major College Football Programs

One recent YouTube video from a student at the University of California Riverside beautifully captures Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) thinking and hypocrisy, detailing how they believe merit matters in basketball – a sport that Black people dominate on the collegiate and professional level – but that affirmative action should never apply to ‘level the playing field’ for physically disadvantaged white boys trying to compete on the hardwood.

Affirmative action in academics, business and every other facet of life – save sports – is vital to ‘leveling the playing field’ where Black people have obvious disadvantages that only science can now explain. Funny that an understanding of genetics and human biodiversity explain many of the advantages Black people have in sports.

What’s sad is that Southern sports fans, the majority of whom live vicariously through their alma maters football program, understand that genetics plays a part in why Black athletes comprise the majority of the rosters of Southeastern Conference (SEC), Conference USA, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), and other big time college football teams, and conversely why such a small percentage of the actual student body is Black.

Understand that college football coaches in the South are considered Gods among men (what else could explain how Auburn coach Gene Chizik went from being vilified by the majority of Auburn fans when he was hired to signing a $3.5 million contract after winning the national title in his second year).

Steve Spurrier, the head football coach at South Carolina, threatened to resign over the schools refusal to admit Black players of poor academic standing. Alumni and fans of South Carolina agreed with Spurrier’s stand, because having a team of Black players – though academically incapable of succeeding in high school, let alone an institution of purported higher learning – gives the Gamecocks a better chance of winning.

Recently the SEC outlawed ‘oversigning’ a practice that allowed SEC coaches to recruit more players for their football programs knowing that many of the Black players they sign to full academic scholarships will fail to qualify academically or get arrested before they arrive on campus.

Here is a hilarious quote from an unnamed SEC coach that attacks the president of the University of Florida for calling the new rule ‘morally reprehensible’:

“If oversigning is ‘morally reprehensible,’ what is playing more than a dozen arrested players over the last five or six years?”

— An SEC football coach reacting to Florida president Bernard Machen, who threw the above-morality card at oversigning. “Maybe if Florida oversigned a little, it could kick more outlaws off its team,” the coach added.

Former Florida coach Urban Meyer had approximately 30 arrests involving his players in six years on the job — or about five a year, which is the number most SEC coaches tend to oversign by. New Florida coach Will Muschamp apparently disagrees with Machen.

He, like the other 11 football coaches, voted to keep the oversigning cap at 28 instead of cutting it to 25 before it was cut to 25 by the presidents.

Consult this link and learn about the 30 Black football players at Florida who won on the football field but lost to the law off of it.

In that same article appears this quote:

“The elementary education and secondary education in the state of Louisiana is not the best in the world. Same for Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas.”

— LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva on why the SEC should have higher signing limits than conferences such as the Big Ten that recruit in better educated pools.

Actually, the elementary and secondary education systems of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas are excellent systems that equip white and Asian students with skills necessary to be competitive in the global marketplace. If you remove Black test scores from the equation, all four of those states instantly shoot up in the state rankings for test scores on the SAT, ACT, and other standardized tests.

It’s the test scores and graduation rates posted by Black students, who perform poorly on every conceivable test and are being left behind despite more money spent per pupil then all other racial groups that drag down the rankings of these southern states.Because white people have been conditioned to believe that Black people are superior at the big two revenue generating sports (football and basketball) every effort is made to outbid rival institutions for the services of Black athletes who have no business being admitted to college in the first place. Well, save their ability to run with the football or dunk a basketball.

Colleges throughout the United States (not just in the south) rely on a steady flow of Black athletic talent to win football and basketball games, and to accommodate these students they lower academic requirements for admittance:

If grades make you a long shot for college, you’re much more likely to get a break if you can play ball.

An Associated Press review of admissions data submitted to the NCAA by most of the 120 schools in college football’s top tier shows that athletes enjoy strikingly better odds of having admission requirements bent on their behalf.

The notion that college athletes’ talents give them a leg up in the admissions game isn’t a surprise. But in what NCAA officials called the most extensive review to date, the AP found the practice is widespread and can be found in every major conference.

The review identified at least 27 schools where athletes were at least 10 times more likely to benefit from special admission programs than students in the general population.

That group includes 2009 Bowl Championship Series teams Oregon, Georgia Tech and Alabama, which is playing Texas for the national title Jan. 7.

ORDER IT NOW

At Alabama, 19 football players got in as part of a special admissions program from 2004 to 2006, the most recent years available in the NCAA report. The school tightened its standards for “special admits” in both 2004 and 2007, but from 2004 through 2006, Crimson Tide athletes were still more than 43 more likely to benefit from such exemptions.

Alabama coach Nick Saban offered no apologies.

“Some people have ability and they have work ethic and really never get an opportunity,” he said. “I am really pleased and happy with the job that we do and how we manage our students here, and the responsibility and accountability they have toward academics and the success that they’ve had in academics.”

The NCAA defines special admissions programs as those designed for students who don’t meet “standard or normal entrance requirements.”

The NCAA says such exceptions are fine as long as schools offer the same opportunities to everyone from dancers, French horn players and underrepresented minorities as they do to fleet-footed wide receivers and 300-pound offensive linemen.

Texas was one of seven schools that reported no use of special admissions, instead describing “holistic” standards that consider each applicant individually rather than relying on minimum test scores and grade-point averages.

But the school also acknowledged in its NCAA report that athletic recruits overall are less prepared. At Texas, the average SAT score for a freshman football player from 2003 to 2005 was 945 – or 320 points lower than the typical first-year student’s score on the entrance exam.

School officials did not make coach Mack Brown or athletic director DeLoss Dodds available to comment.

In all, 77 of the 92 Football Bowl Subdivision schools that provided information to the AP reported using special admissions waivers to land athletes and other students with particular talents. The AP spent three months obtaining and reviewing the reports through state public records laws.

Ten schools did not respond to the AP’s request and 18 other schools, including Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Southern California, declined to release their reports. The reports do not identify specific students who benefited from admissions waivers, but they are identified by sport in many cases.

The NCAA sets minimum eligibility standards to compete once a student is in college, but leaves admissions decisions to individual schools and does not compare “special admits” across schools.

Kevin Lennon, NCAA vice president for academic and membership affairs, noted that NCAA schools face penalties, including losing scholarships, if athletes’ graduation rates are too low or if they fail to show adequate progress toward a degree.

“While it’s an institution’s decision on who they bring in, we’re most interested in what they do once they get there,” he said. “And if they’re not successful, there are consequences.”

At California, one of the country’s most selective public universities, Golden Bear football players were 43 times more likely to gain special admissions than non-athletes from 2002-04.

“It doesn’t matter to us if that student is a junior Olympian in taekwondo or the best oboe player in the United States or someone who can really run fast and jump high,” said Walter Robinson, admissions director at Cal. “We still look at that student with the same consideration: can that student be successful at Berkeley if admitted?”

An Associated Press review has found that at least 77 of the 120 schools in the Football Bowl Subdivision have used special admissions waivers to land athletes and other students with certain talents.

Football players and other athletes at 27 schools were at least 10 times more likely to benefit from such programs than students in the general population:

– Arizona, California, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington (Pac-10)
– Baylor, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma (Big 12)
– Alabama and Georgia (SEC)
– Clemson, Georgia Tech and Maryland (ACC)
– Indiana (Big 10)
– Rutgers and South Florida (Big East)
– Alabama-Birmingham, Central Florida, East Carolina, Houston, Marshall and Memphis (Conference USA)
– Colorado State and Utah (Mountain West)
– Western Michigan (Mid-American Conference)

NOTE: At Arizona, Oregon, Missouri, Georgia Tech and Houston, only football players exceeded the 10-times threshold. At Baylor, Clemson and Western Michigan, athletes overall exceeded the threshold but football players did not. Oregon State and UCLA did not provide percentages for football.

Ten schools did not provide the information requested by the AP under state public records laws: Akron, Army, Florida International, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana Tech, San Diego State, South Carolina, Southern Mississippi, Troy and Wyoming.

The majority of Black athletes on the football and basketball team for your alma mater are probably enrolled as “special admission” students, because they have an innate inability to post grades and produce test scores anywhere near the required academic threshold for entry.

Black athletes, whose absence on the field could jeopardize a team’s ability to win – just ask Fisher DeBerry –are the subject of many tears and words of indignation from Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) Richard Lapchick.
Each year Lapchick publishes graduation data on Black and white athletes for college football bowl bound teams and NCAA Basketball Tournament. Without fail, the data showcases the inability of Black players to graduate and the high success rate for white athletes (Read this article on Auburn and the Opiate of America for more information).

Odds that these guys are engineering majors at Georgia Tech?
Odds that these guys are engineering majors at Georgia Tech?

Lapchick blames the colleges for not doing enough to improve the Black graduation rates, despite the millions that colleges pour into tutoring and erecting academic centers with the expressed goal of maintaining athlete’s eligibility and ultimately graduating them.

What Lapchick fails to do is consider the poor state of Historically Black College and Universities (HBCU) football teams, many of which are under investigation for posting embarrassing low graduation rates:

CAA President Mark Emmert expects athletes at historically black colleges and universities to make the grade — and he’s willing to help after seeing the results of the latest Academic Progress Rates.

The NCAA banned Jackson State and Southern from postseason play in football next season, and did the same thing for Southern and Grambling in men’s basketball, citing poor classroom performance by all three schools and a host of others in the Southwestern Athletic and Mid-Eastern Athletic conferences.

The NCAA released the penalties Tuesday. Southern became the first school to be banned from the postseason in two sports in the same year — football and men’s basketball — because of academic performance.

ORDER IT NOW

“You’re right that there are a number of historically black colleges and universities that have been penalized, especially through the postseason ban,” Emmert said. “We are concerned about that, have met with those institutions to help them develop ways for improvement and to help provide resources to help them be successful.”

The impact of the penalties could swing the balance of power in the SWAC and MEAC, both comprised of HBCUs, and both of which get automatic bids to the NCAA basketball tourneys, too.

The numbers are striking: The NCAA evaluated more than 340 schools for the APR report but only 24 of them — about 7 percent of the total — are considered historically black colleges or universities.

Yet of the 58 harshest penalties handed out this year, fully half went to teams in these two conferences.

SWAC commissioner Duer Sharp told NCAA.org that turnover in school staff — including school presidents — has hurt academic performance of athletes.

Whatever the explanation, the SWAC must now decide whether to let Jackson State and Southern play in its football championship should they advance, and whether to allow Southern and Grambling to compete in the men’s basketball tournament. If either were to win the championship, the league could lose its automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

“We don’t have a firm timeline,” assistant commissioner for communications Tom Galbraith said. “Our conference meetings aren’t until the first week of June, and I wouldn’t expect anything finalized before that time.”

The 10-member SWAC has a long and storied football tradition thanks in large part to three powerhouse programs — Grambling, Jackson State and Southern.

Coach Eddie Robinson spent 56 seasons as Grambling’s coach and sent a long list of players to the NFL. The most notable may have been quarterback Doug Williams, the former Super Bowl who is coaching his alma mater for the second time.

Jackson State, in Mississippi, produced one of the NFL’s greatest players, running back Walter Payton, along with Hall of Famers Jackie Slater and Lem Barney. And Southern’s alums include another NFL Hall of Famer, Mel Blount, as well as Philadelphia Eagles record-setting receiver Harold Carmichael and Arizona Cardinals defensive back Aeneas Williams.

But it’s not just the bans that could hurt the competition in either league.

Texas Southern, which played for last year’s SWAC football title, must give up nearly 15 football scholarships, while Jackson State lost half a dozen. Both of those schools will have their practice time reduced, too.

The 13-member MEAC, is taking a similar hit, minus the bans.

Delaware State is losing nine football scholarships, North Carolina A&T is losing three and both schools must contend with new practice limitations, too.

The punishments could be just as debilitating — or more — in basketball.

Coppin State will lose four scholarships, while Norfolk State is losing two. Those two schools, along with Morgan State, also face practice reductions.

Also, Mississippi Valley State and Southern will each lose two scholarships in basketball. Grambling will have one scholarship taken away.

In all, five schools in each league face penalties.

Norfolk State athletics director Marty L. Miller said the Spartans’ APR performance was hurt by the loss of three players to transfers or other reasons.

“We made every effort to assist them to remain in school, but could not resolve the reasons for their departure,” Miller said. “We will continue to address the transfer issue in order to eliminate the penalty status for the next reporting period.”

What can be done?

Walter Harrison, president at the University of Hartford, said the NCAA’s committee on academic performance is debating whether the supplementary support fund, which provides $1 million in grants to low-resource schools, is working the way it should or whether the NCAA can do more.

To Emmert, though, the bottom line is simple. Every school can improve in the classroom.

“You worry about the impact it (penalties) can have on any of those conferences, but the important thing is to promote the success of our student-athletes and that’s our desire to promote academic success,” he said. “It is also the case that we do need to be cognizant of the missions of HBCUs, which isn’t the same as all of our institutions. It’s asking them to complete their missions.”

The New York Times has published an article showing there is no payoff for Black students to attend an HBCU, though a study published in the prestigious Review of Black Political Economy argues the opposite. Taking the Stephen Jay Gould approach, the latter study has no scientific merit and attempts to formulate results based on the researcher’s prejudices.

Then again less than half of all HBCU students graduate within six years, so we should probably cut the athletes a little slack.

Lapchick has made a career off of attacking colleges for failing to properly educate and graduate Black athletes at the same rate as white athletes, and he refuses to believe for a second that nature has anything to do with this problem. The fact that HBCU’s fail to graduate Black athletes and that HBCU’s can’t comply with Predominately White Institutions is an obvious indicator that having universally enforced standards is a form of repugnant racism:

The 2011 release of Academic Progress Rate data revealed that Historically Black Colleges and Universities continue to struggle with the academic metric that measures the eligibility and retention of student-athletes at a team level. Where many non-HBCU peers – including schools with similarly limited resources – show some improvement, teams at HBCUs are trending in the opposite direction.

For the 2009-10 APR reporting year (the data released today), 33 of the 103 penalties went to teams at historically black institutions.

HBCU advocates say the reasons for the downward movement are complex and extend beyond a lack of resources, though that factor is cited most often as a reason for poor academic performance. Where many institutions with more funding can hire academic advisors, tutors and other people to ensure their student-athletes go to class, many HBCUs just don’t have that kind of cash on hand.

Big time college programs like Auburn and Oregon do have that kind of cash on hand, and have the exact same problem that HBCUs with graduating Black athletes:

In the aftermath of a football academic scandal at Auburn in 2006 that caused two department heads to step down and the N.C.A.A. to investigate, university officials are no longer bragging — or even talking — about the team’s once-stellar scholastic record.

Among all the bowl teams this season, Auburn has the highest disparity in the graduation rates between white players (100 percent) and black players (49 percent), according to a study at the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida.

What’s sad is that these problems – graduating Black athletes – have plagued schools for decades. The below story is about the University of Southern California’s inability to graduate Black athletes from a 1991 issue of Sports Illustrated :

An NCAA study of 3,288 athletes at 85 Division I schools who entered as freshmen in 1984 and ’85 revealed that 52.3% of white athletes graduated within five years, but only 26.6% of black athletes finished in that time. In football and men’s basketball, the graduation rates were 54.9% for white players, 25.0% for black players. A 1988-89 study of athletes at 42 universities, commissioned by the NCAA Presidents Commission and conducted by the American Institutes for Research, indicated that athletes in general and black athletes in particular felt isolated both socially and academically from the rest of the student body.

“The exploitation of black athletes by colleges and universities in this country has been going on for a long time, even at a school with the history and reputation of USC,” says Cobb. “USC, like many schools, is a virtual black-athlete factory running on quarter speed. They go out and sell those kids on the Trojan family, that a USC degree will mean the world. Yet they don’t have the proper resources to make it an even chance for the kids they recruit.”

ORDER IT NOW

If the inability to graduate Black players is because they feel isolated socially and academically from the rest of the student body on Predominately White Institutions campuses, what in the world can explain the failure of HBCU’s to graduate Black athletes? And the general student body?

Richard Lapchick has an agenda, as all Disingenuous White Liberals do. College sports have always been profitable (once the number of college football on television was restricted to only a few games a week; now the profitability of college football games on television is exploited by ESPN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox) and college football fans would cheer for any players that wear their teams uniform. For most of the history of college football, those jerseys were worn by only white players.

Now, teams like Auburn, Florida, Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida State, Miami, Tennessee, South Carolina and others look like HBCU teams. The only exception is that white fans are in the stands cheering them on and the similarity between the two is that the Black athletes fail to graduate at either a PWI or an HBCU.

Without the advent of “special admission” status for Black athletes, it’s hard to imagine many Black players even getting into schools:

Former Indiana University football coach Gerry DiNardo doesn’t recall any battles to get recruits into school, including the 42 percent of his first class that didn’t meet IU’s normal entrance requirements.

As at Louisiana State, where DiNardo also coached, he said if players met the NCAA’s minimum academic standards, he could count on them being admitted.
DiNardo said there’s nothing wrong with these so-called “special admits” — as long as schools think the players can graduate with adequate tutoring. But he’s frank about the situation.

“We know they’re not qualified academically,” said DiNardo, now a commentator for the Big Ten Network, “so our obligation extends past what it is for a non-student-athlete.”

It can be a heavy obligation. Many of the nation’s largest universities rely on special admits — students admitted under exceptions to normal admission standards for reasons including “special talent” — to stock their football teams, an Indianapolis Star study of 55 universities found. At these schools, the percentage of special admits among students overall is extremely small.

The disparity can be stark: The University of California in 2004 reported that 95 percent of its freshman football players on scholarship were special admits, compared with 2 percent of the student body. Others: Texas A&M in 2004, 94 percent to 8 percent; and Oklahoma in 2002, 81 percent to 2 percent.

It will never happen, because the college football fields are fertilized in Varsity Green, but the best way to end this madness is to abolish athletic scholarships. You abolish college scholarships (or do what college baseball has done; only giving partial scholarships) and then only those capable of getting into school with proper academic credentials and paying their own way for tuition will be able to play.

If that means a significant cut in Black participation in college athletics, so be it. Only through affirmative action policies and ‘special admissions’ can the majority of Black athletes even be allowed to step foot on campus.

The question of would predominately white alumni and sports fans, who have been conditioned that the only legitimate form of football or basketball is played between primarily Black participants, watch predominately white players is one that hardly needs answering.

Why do you think such massive stadiums exist on the campuses of Auburn, Georgia, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan, Ohio State and Alabama? It was white players – most of whom went both ways (playing offense and defense) before football became a specialized game with substitutions and intricate rules that favor faster athletes – that built these powerhouses.

Once only a few college football games were shown on television, now ESPN broadcasts virtually every minor game on one of its five channels (why hasn’t ESPN been declared a monopoly yet?) and CBS, NBC, and Fox fight to outbid each other for the broadcast rights to the leftovers.

Now, positive images of Black people are manufactured through collegiate sports that fans watch on television; and the majority of these Black athletes have no business at these schools. Because of the consumption of sports on television, most Americans grossly exaggerate the Black percentage of the overall US population; a population group that every American assiduously moves away from living near, abandoning major cities in the process.

When you look at when the disintegration of the Black family started (thanks OneSTDV), it eerily begins when integration started to take place throughout the country. HBCU football programs had access to excellent Black talent then, but because of one stupid game played in 1970 between Bear Bryant’s all-white Alabama squad and an integrated University of Southern California squad (USC won 42-21), all SEC teams decided to start recruiting Black athletes:

1966 was a pivotal year in college football history, the year when, in addition to integration, the power of the sport as a TV draw became evident. (Ratings for the late season clash between the number one-ranked Irish and the number two Spartans exceeded those for the first Super Bowl two months later.) There’s a great book to be written on that season, but Mr. Dunnavant instead has chosen to air a grudge.

It can be argued that the Alabama football team was a victim of politics. A vocal minority, led by the Los Angeles Times’ Jim Murray (who regularly accused Bryant and Alabama of playing for the “Magnolia Championship”), made it obvious that no segregated team would get their vote. Mr. Dunnavant’s case for the 1966 Tide, though, is based far more on emotion than reason. “By choosing to let the voters decide rather than risking a loss on the final play against Michigan State,” writes Mr. Dunnavant, “Ara Parseghian deftly exploited the media’s love affair with the Irish and the widespread anti-Southern bias.” What “bias”? All-white teams from the South — including Auburn, LSU, Texas, and Alabama (three times) — had won six of the previous nine championships from 1957 through 1965, and in 1969, Texas, still all-white, won again, a fact of which Mr. Dunnavant seems unaware.

ORDER IT NOW

Furthermore, there is no compelling reason why Notre Dame’s 1966 squad shouldn’t have won it all: They played a tougher schedule than either Alabama or Michigan State and won by a wider margin of victory. Even if Parseghian erred in being overly cautious, why should his team have been punished? Further, it is unsettling Spartan tackle Bubba Smith’s explanation for Notre Dame’s finishing number one — “All the sportswriters are Catholic” — goes unchallenged by Mr. Dunnavant.

Myself, I’d have voted for Alabama, but as I grew up there, I’m not objective. But when Mr. Dunnavant, writing at the top of his voice, declares that the vote for Notre Dame was “the greatest misjustice in college football history,” my jaw dropped. The greatest misjustice in college football history is that black players from Alabama and the rest of the South weren’t given a chance to play in their home states. And, frankly, I don’t share Mr. Dunnavant’s optimism as to how much progress the state has made because Condoleezza Rice tossed a coin to open the 2005 Alabama-Tennessee game in Tuscaloosa. “The chill-bump factor,” he writes, “was high.” I’d feel better if I knew for sure there were more blacks in the stands that day than on the field.

Mr. Yeager’s “Turning of the Tide” recounts vividly the game that accelerated the process of integration in Southern football. By the end of the 1960s, Bryant felt he had built up sufficient leverage to defy George Wallace’s segregationist stance, as well as obstructionist sentiments within his own university, and was ready to recruit top black athletes. The problem was that the top black athletes didn’t want to play for Alabama.

Looking for a dramatic stage from which to send a message that his team was ready to integrate, Bryant contacted his good friend, USC coach John McKay, and over drinks, shook hands on a deal: USC would open the 1970 season in Birmingham, and ‘Bama would return the favor in 1971 at the L.A. Coliseum.

Mr. Yaeger doesn’t pretend to understand completely the motives of the inscrutable Bryant, who never made clear his reasons for arranging the match. In retrospect, though, it’s clear that Bryant’s intentions were to shake up the boosters and politicians who still resisted integration, and that he also knew his team was no match for the Trojans. It wasn’t: the 42–21 Trojan rout was the game that caught the attention of the entire South.

The Alabama papers, both white and black, made no mention of the game’s significance, but word of mouth made all the difference. Even before the game, Jim Murray understood the result no matter who won: “The point of the game will not be the score, the Bear, the Trojans; the point of the game will be Reason, Democracy, Hope. The real winner will be the South.” Murray was right. I only wish Mr. Yaeger had devoted more space to the next season’s game, when an integrated Alabama team whipped Southern Cal in Los Angeles.

“Turning of the Tide” is that rare sports book that can be read with pride by fans of both the winning and losing teams. To his credit, Mr. Yaeger doesn’t seem to believe the legend that after the 1970 game, Bryant “borrowed” USC fullback Sam “Bam” Cunningham (who had rushed for 135 yards) and brought him to the Tide locker room, where he told his players, “Gentlemen, this what a football player looks like.” It never happened, but I’ll bet that scene shows up when they make the movie.

It’s fitting that that game was played in Birmingham, a city that once rivaled any in America, and now has descended into an unlivable metropolis with pervasive Black violence and chaos at the hands of the elected Black officials.
Everything changed with one game, when an undermanned Alabama team was defeated by an integrated team. The decision was made then to start recruiting Black players, regardless of their academic ability. This limited the quality of athletes available for HBCU programs, while forcing PWI institutions to lower academic standards for these new Black athletes. And, eventually, moral standards as well (thanks Jeff Benedict for your excellent data). To keep these Black athletes eligible, clustering in easy majors is the norm, as well as cheating scandals (Florida State and Georgia are two high-profile ones) that show much of the work done by Black athletes is actually that of white tutors.
It’s fitting that USA Today would publish an article today (June 16) on how “Money flows to college sports”:

Much of the rise in athletics revenue came from an escalation in money generated through multimedia rights deals, donations and ticket receipts, but schools also continued increasing their subsidies from student fees and institutional funds.Altogether in 2010, about $2 billion in subsidies went to athletics at the 218 public schools that have been in the NCAA‘s Division I over the past five years. Those subsidies grew by an inflation-adjusted 3% in 2010. They have grown by 28% since 2006 and account for $1 of every $3 spent on athletics.

Even with 2010’s more modest growth rate, these increases run counter to the national trend of declining state support for public colleges, many of which have imposed layoffs, salary freezes, cuts in courses and substantial tuition and fee hikes. While about a third of the 218 Division I schools trimmed athletics budgets last year, about a third either increased their spending faster than money came in or didn’t cut spending enough to keep up with losses.

“Athletics apparently has no oversight,” says Ken Struckmeyer, an associate professor at Washington State who co-chairs the Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics, a faculty group advocating for athletics reform. “They generate (money), then they spend whatever they bring in — and if that’s not enough, the board of regents provides a subsidy to help them win. … Apparently, the measure of success of universities now is wins by the football team or the basketball team.”

Struckmeyer might not be one who understands the concept of Black-Run America (BRA), but paying for it has bankrupted the country; it is not sustainable. As the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics showed, the cost of sustaining college athletics is not sustainable either.

We alluded to that YouTube video of DWLs saying that sports were different and that ‘leveling the playing field’ would be wrong to achieve a racial balance, whereas such endeavors are right when it means doing it to augment the Black student enrollment, at the expense of white and Asian students.

DWLs know the truth that we espouse here; without sports, what positive images of Black people can be shown on a daily basis? What contributions can be routinely showcased, save for the endless parade of highlights on ESPN of touchdown runs and slam dunks?

Simultaneously, without affirmative action in academics and business, how would Black people – who lack the academic scores and qualifications necessary to compete with whites and Asians – ever gain entry to good schools or succeed in the business world?

Implementing affirmative action policies for white and Asian athletes would remove slots allocated for more deserving Black athletes, who otherwise would have no business at the institution of higher learning.

In closing, we pose a question to you Richard Lapchick, a man who has made a lucrative living off of publishing graduation data that shows Black athletes can’t graduate at the same pace as white athletes.

Why do you fail to discuss HBCU graduation data for student-athletes?

  1. You misspelled academic welfare:

    It's "AFARMATIFF AKSHEMZ," as in Michelle Obama's famous statement: "I LUVZ AFARMATIFF AKSHEMZ; IT MAKES ME BE PROUD TO BE A AMERIKAN."

  2. Anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    I would like to see them ask these DWL's about affirmative action for getting more blacks onto college hockey teams like Minnesota, Wisconsin or Boston. Watch how many will be in favor or sports affirmative action when it helps blacks. Then turn the tables and ask them about more Whites on basketball teams. You will see absolute hypocrisy.

    "Black athletes, whose absence on the field could jeopardize a team’s ability to win – just ask Fischer DeBerry."

    Ironically, DeBerry's teams at the Air Force academy were often 80% white. And they were routinely in bowl games and ranked among the top 20 in the nation.

    Moreover, AF was only a game or two removed from destroying a mostly black UNLV team.

    It's kind of like Americans saying "we need more blacks on our soccer team so we can win the World Cup" even though all-white sides from Italy and Spain won the last two cups and mostly black France – the team most Americans want to emulate – didn't win a single game.

  6. I forgot the link to that Fisher DeBerry article:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2203926

    Air Force was always good. It's amazing how one game – the TCU game back in 2005 – was enough to force DeBerry to make that claim.

  7. "Moreover, AF was only a game or two removed from destroying a mostly black UNLV team."

    I should have said:

    "Moreover, AF was only a game or two removed from destroying a mostly black UNLV team when he made these comments."

    Not sure about 2005, but in 2010 TCU started 10 whites and had a majority white roster (probably close to 70% white).

    Also, its not like AF gets the best white athletes. If you were a top athlete would you rather spend your college years in a military academy or in a state school with lots of parties and easy women?

    Old-line SEC (Tennessee) fan here. Speaking of the Bear Bryant statue outside Legion Field, Tennessee used to play Auburn and Alabama there, but stopped. One reason was the area around Legion Field had become too dangerous. In the old days, Vol fans preferred to go to Birmingham rather than Tuscaloosa or Auburn. No longer.

    The 1970 USC-Alabama game has been WAY overplayed. Integration was taking place anyway. Alabama was weak in 1970, Tennessee (with only one black on the field that day) clobbered Alabama that year 24-0.

  10. Good read. I graduated from FSU, but would be in favor of parallel admission standards for athletes.

    There was a show, on ESPN, about FSU looking the other way in the cases of academically unqualified African athletes. I think it was Cromartie that couldn't even read.

    But money talks and bullshit walks, so I guess we will continue to see dumb Africans jumping and running for all the White idolaters to see.

    I believe that if white people are to be taken seriously about the subject of inherent racial differences, we must be honest with ourselves , without shame, about such things. The average black male is physically stronger and faster than the average white male. Unfortunately, in BRA, our society seems to value these traits more than those which made white societies so successful, such as intelligence and teamwork, among others. These qualities favored white people in the days when survival depended on such things. Ironically, the comfort in which we live, made possible by the efforts of our ancestors and the great civilizations which they built, has made these qualities less important.
    What catastrophe! To think that our efforts have given rise to a people who can never sustain such great societies on their own (South Africa,Zimbabwe e.g.). It will be too late for us when white people wake up to the awful truth.

For that matter, white athletes can keep up most of the time in the speed department in football.

    The average black male is faster, but not stronger.

    Every year at the NFL combine, college players are asked to lift 225 pounds as many times as possible. Up until last year, the top 3 performers were white men. The record was broken this year by a pacific islander.

    Black males produce more lactic acid than whites, that's why those 3 white men were able to throw that bar up an ungodly 45 times each.

    I remember wrestling several blacks in highschool, and I always felt stronger than them. One in particular was what we called a buzzsaw, because he was shorter but had thicker arms. You didn't want to tie up (clinch arms) with a guy like that but I did and still maintained control. You won't believe this but I can remember overhearing the guy's coach telling him I was stronger so stop trying to tie up.

    I will admit that blacks are faster. Longer achilles tendon and a higher belly-button, which means higher center of gravity, are the reasons why.

    And for anybody who thinks the average black is tougher, go out to the country. There are a whole mess of skoal chewing hosses out there who would beat a black man blue.

    Producing more lactic acid causes blacks to experience acidosis often.

    One of the side effects of acidosis is body odor.

    So just as their have been sound scientific reasons for why blacks are faster and whites are stronger, there is a sound scientific reason for why blacks tend to stink.

    But anybody who's played sports with them could have told you that.

  19. Just curious,since we're on the topic of sports,why there was a ton of rioting in Vancouver last night after the Canucks Finals loss?I think I saw only one black in the video.Not sure what their real % is in Vancouver.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1HPn1qGIps

    I'm not bashing Canadians,but I think it has to do with their more leftist society,so it's more cultural and less genetic.Slightly more than half of Vancouver are either white,Aboriginal,or Metis(a mixture of white and aboriginal;what we call mixed-blood in the United States or mestizo in Mexico).

    In sporting events in America,white Americans don't riot.When there are sporting riots,they are almost always black,like in L.A. when the Lakers won.

    Well,commenting on this article,I think universities should get rid of their racial quotas,but admit athletes with slightly lower grades than the average that they admit.But if the athletes fail in their schoolwork,put them on probation,suspend them or something like that.

  20. Anonymous 2:03: Blacks are not only faster in straight line speed, which is conclusive by the Olympic sprinting records, but black are more agile.

I have yet to personally meet any black that is seriously interested in a career in MMA,or Strongman, but I have met blacks who are interested in playing football or basketball professionally. You know that most of America's best athletes ( Black or White) do not pursue MMA professionally.So, why do you continue to use this as an example? Anderson Silva or Jon Jones looks like they are going to dominate MMA for a long time anyway despite the fact that blacks generally are not interested in MMA

    Blacks were 20% of the participants in the first UFC. All were handled.

    There are a few decent blacks in MMA like Anderson Silva and Jones. But Silva is 34 and was dominated by Chael Sonnen for four and a hald rounds. He is in the weakest division (185)and has four losses.

    Whites comprise 5 of the top 10 MMA fighters whle blacks only have two (Jones and Silva).

    It's a good thing that blacks don't want to make careers as MMA fighters as they usually wind up on thier backs inside the cage.

LOL!)

    "…have a large white success rate."

    And this is something to point out because–holistically speaking–whites seem to be less equip for sports.

    It must suck ass to be both a sports-obsessed drone and a white racist. You have to face your holistic athletic inferiority to 'Da Black Man' every time you turn on the telly!

    So whites rioting (more than just Canadians FYI–at soccer events all over Europe there's been rioting at some point in time) is 'cultural', but blacks rioting is 'genetic'.

    Talk about living in a total fantasy land where cherry-picking is the hobby du jour…not to mention being a complete and utter dumb fucking moron.

    Men are sad, pathetic creatures.

    "That's the dumbest fucking argument I've ever seen in my life."

    W.r.t. college sports, the better the athlete, the dumber they will be. College sports would not be a multi-million dollar enterprise if they cared about an athlete's education first and foremost.

    This is a no-brainer, pardon the pun.

    http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/Vancouver-Riot-Pics-Post-Your-Photos/

    Can you EVER imagine Black people making such an organized effort to catch Black rioters? Furthermore, can you ever imagine Blacks coming out in masses to clean up the mess, as White Vancouver citizens did today? And people are being arrested from these photos and videos. If a Black man posted a video of another Black man lighting a cop car on fire, the Snitch wouldn't survive 24 hours.

  40. "So whites rioting (more than just Canadians FYI–at soccer events all over Europe there's been rioting at some point in time) is 'cultural', but blacks rioting is 'genetic'."

    Whites are not immune to African degeneracy. The dark presence has had, and continues to have, cancerous effects on Europeans the world over, which is why you see those White rioting idiots acting like packs of African beasts.

    But, you, Desiree, are an equalist, and as such, you will attempt to normalize African degeneracy, like you always do, in direct contradiction to natural law, and take these African-acting White dumb asses as proof of your forthcoming egalitarian screed.

  41. I made a mistake there,Dree.Thanks for pointing that out.It's not only blacks that cause flash mobs,correct,as the amount of black people were almost proportionate to their size there.

    Whenever alcohol is consumed,there is always a loss of control whomever it is.Especially with the ecstacy of victory or agony of defeat.

    Watching more videos and pictures,I realized it weren't just young white men and that most of the people were intoxicated.I saw some rioters that were clearly of Asian descent,which is just a shameful image to the elders.

  42. "Blacks don't like MMA because it's one on one."

    Blacks (qualifier?) don't like MMA because it has not the prestige or dignity of boxing, which many blacks enjoy.

    "Blacks only fight when they have the numbers, man to man just ain't their style (read: pussies)."

    You obviously haven't seen very many street fights. W.r.t. 'pussies', so sayeth the white woman from behind her computer screen.

    Yes. What a real deviation from cowardice!

    I've often wondered how you bitch-and-moaners would fare saying the exact things said here in person. Please, by all means, find your nearest black neighbor, ring his/her doorbell, and, when he/she opens the door, say to them exactly what you say on this site.

    That should be interesting.

    "Now, if the MMA would switch to the five on one format I'd bet the blacks would be all over that."

    You obviously haven't seen many street fights. I reckon at least 1 in 2 fights that begin 1 on 1 end up at least 2 on 1.

    It's funny because when I was in school it was always Latinos who never fought fair.

    "When you allow 6' 5" black men to fight 5' 1" women in MMA then you will see an upturn in black interest."

    An exponential growth in white male interest. Hell, white men already love seeing women (naked) tortured and killed in their films, this would only be a fruition of that celluloid fantasy, which, apparently, is a winning formula.

    Add the fantasy black man/white woman element and that would sell out arenas!

    The audience? Drunken, pale-faced, meat-headed, Affliction tee-wearing, date-raping Frat boy rage addicts (i.e. the losers who already watch UFC).

    Gymnastics is a great sport and this coming Olympics NBC will be covering gymnastics in it's totality. I rooted for China last games.

    However, unless one is in a Communist country, gymnastics is not a cheap sport, like your footballs and basketballs, perhaps because it's not as popular and, therefore, not as accessible. I believe this is the reason many blacks are not gymnasts, especially since 1 in 4 US blacks are in poverty.

    You had Dominique Dawes at the Atlanta games (that I can remember). She was a middle class girl.

    Golf was largely segregated and then, in walks Tiger Woods.

    Tennis was for bluebloods and still is. But Venus and Serena Williams are skilled champions who kick ass.

    At the turn of the 19th century, basketball was NOT to be played by blacks, only whites. When they integrated you saw a gradual phasing out of white players for black ones.

    Oh, the irony.

    Now, one or even a couple of black athletes in a 'white-dominated' sport are not going to prove the 'blacks are better athletes' stereotype. (Swimming? Forget it. Blacks are far too muscular.) But I reckon doing a 50/50 split in these white sports, we'd probably be stenciling the aforementioned into a monument in Washington DC.

    It is BRA, after all.

    It's all about exposure to the game.

    BTW it's funny–and hypocritical–to see white people's collectivism at work with this sports nonsense. One=all for whites when it's 'good', how convenient. But one=all for blacks when it's bad. I guess that is a supremacist's folly.

    The riot in Vancouver was instigated by blacks. There is video footage of blacks being arrested, after almost beating a white man to death.

    Even though blacks are a very small percentage of the population in Canada, they are almost always the source of crime and general all-round thuggery.

    The politically correct media and the police both refuse to report on the racial makeup of the criminals. This has been rigidly enforced for years. As if not admitting that the thugs are blacks will somehow solve the problem.

    But every right-thinking white Canadian knows who the criminals are, and the genesis of most murders, rapes and robberies is the black ghettos. Even though they are public housing, they were nice — I used to take Americans on tour to our public housing, and they would be impressed how neat, clean and tidy they were — until they were taken over by shiftless blacks. Now our public housing, if dominated by blacks, is your classic cesspool of a genuine ghetto.

    Regarding the Vancouver "riot" — it is amazing to me that it is blacks who are bringing up the issue as an attempt at a "gotcha" to deflect from the systemic dysfunctional nature of black society.

    But their "gotcha" is misguided and misplaced.

    Blacks were the instigators, as private citizen videos attest. The video released by the corporate media, however, is careful to only show whites.

    The police were concerned about "human bites" and several people were hospitalized with stab wounds and concussions.

    No matter where they are, the behavior never changes.

    Both of my spouse's black co-workers claimed to have played football in college on scholarship, yet never claim to have graduated college. And their lack of education and preparation for the real world is telling – it is impossible to read anything they generate, between the spelling, grammatical and syntax errors, it is hard to distinguish if it is English or some other gibberish. When they talk about their college experience it is to brag about the partying and the women. Classic.

    It would appear the whole "college athlete" scam is a fraud from beginning to end.

    You forgot fencing, a centuries-old European sport.

    However, the sport of fencing is slowly being destroyed by blacks.

    Fencing is known for its code of chivalry and gentlemanly conduct.

    There is a fencing school in NY, the Peter Westerbrook foundation, that caters to "disadvantaged minority youth" by providing fencing lessons, homework assistance, etc.

    In spite of all this academic and social support, these students can not conduct themselves with any type of class or dignity.

    Most recently at a tournament in Burlington, NJ, a female minority fencer from the Westerbrook foundation was losing — and losing badly — to a clearly more highly skilled and accomplished fencer from Canada.

    After the match concluded, the Canadian coach went over to congratulate his fencer, who had done well.

    The minority fencer from Westerbrook threw down her weapon, ran over to the Canadian coach and started screaming at him, "Shut Up! Shut Up! Shut UP!". The spectators were stunned at this outburst.

    But it didn't end there. Throughout the duration of the tournament, this same fencer, upon seeing any of the Canadian team, would begin to curse them out using the most foul and inappropriate language.

    I'm so happy that "diversity" is being foisted upon us by the DWLs in NY and Atlanta that are funding this nonsense and destroying another perfectly wonderful sport.

    "Tell that to the blacks who care about school."

    Your inability to recognize my sarcastic use of your negro brethren's logic ("The only reason blacks don't dominate those sports is because they don't care about those sports.") is indicative of your negro IQ.

    Clearly among the 47% of black males that do graduate from high school, there are some that value education.

    Golf is not segregated, but because it doesn't involve running or jumping, blacks are terrible golfers.

    Tiger Woods, who is 25% black, has not sparked a wave of negro interest in golf.

    Poverty is a direct result of personal choices.

    With 70% of black children being born out-of-wedlock, often to an uneducated and unskilled mother, high rates of negro poverty are not going to decrease.

    Tennis is not for "bluebloods", the Williams sisters learned to play tennis in the slums of Compton, CA. The reason blacks don't play tennis is because most of them suck.

    But that just shows that blacks are not such great athletes. The PGA and tennis – like most every sport – has free clinics and lessons that target black areas. Whites have to pay for their own lessons. And still whites dominate these sports. Woods (if you want to consider him black) is in decline as are the Williams sisters. And there are no blacks taking their places.

    Actually it is quite the reverse. Blacks are much more racist than whites and much more likely to cheer for a team/athlete based on race than non-blacks.

    Yet whites win the most medals in both the winter and summer Olympics. That's because we excel at all sports instead of just basketball, American football and sprints.

    Besides, Dirk Nowitzki just lit your boys up in the NBA.

    And just looking at the overly-developed muscular bodies the Williams sisters possess as compared to European female professional tennis players, it appears to me it is a legitimate and sensible topic that needs to be addressed.

    Please allow me to address Desires to be White,

    First and for most I must give you some background information. I am a Strength and Conditioning coach as well as a Martial Arts(MMA+) coach. In the past I have worked in law enforcement and in private security and I have worked and lived in four different countries. That's enough info choose to believe it or not I won't give out any private information on the internet.

    I am not a big fan of team sports but I watch enough to know the basics and converse with clients. I enjoy individual sports especially combat sports. I don't own a TV but I do enjoy the odd fight if it's a good one.

    Okay in no particular order I will again try to address some of the issues brought forth.

    #1. I agree gymnastics is a great sport and on the continuim of athletics it has the best overall athletes. Judging for Agility, Flexibility, Static Strength, Power Production, Muscular Endurance.

    #2. Combat sports have always drawn the disadvantaged and marginalized populations. At one time Jews had very good boxers as did the Irish, Italians, and then the blacks. It is of no wonder that Eastern Europeans are doing so well now. Our welfare situation makes it easy to survive on a government check no work involved there for less black kids go into boxing to make a living.

    #3. Scientifically it is a pretty well know fact that different population and even race have certain somotypes (Body Types) that give them a distinct advantage in certain sports. Take two vastly different somotypes from Africa. East Africans have muscular body a lot of fast twitch muscle fibers and long legs with a high center of gravity. West Africans are leaner have a lot of slow twitch fibers but also have long legs in relation to their torso. West Africans are Sprinters East Africans are Distance Runners both are built for different types of running there is no dispute.

    Both populations have narrow hips(good for running) that make birth difficult unless the child has a small relative head(bad for thinking).

    Blacks and DWL love to point out how nature has designed Africans for sport but they balk at the idea that Africans are also not very bright.

    #4. White athletes; lets take wrestlers until MMA only the best wrestlers continued after college. Wrestling has a few notable black stars but is pretty much a White sport. There are few scholarships for Wrestling and most Wrestlers graduate at much higher numbers than just about any other sport(or at least big money sport the case can be made for gymnasts too).

    Whites although varied also have a particular somotype that is in between blacks and Asians. One difference is we have a lower center of gravity than blacks our muscle fiber types are much more evenly distributed so we are more balanced in that. We tend to have thicker joints and wider hips. This makes for good Wrestlers, Judo players and of course MMA fighters where grappling is a large part of the game. Whites also have a good balance of Testosterone to Brains ratio it enables us to think and be aggressive. Where blacks have a balance more to the T and Asians more to the B.

    This post is becoming rather large I hope I addressed most of the statements that were issued against my other post.

    Before I forget. I really Like A. Silva he is a step above the fighters in his division especially in striking he is also Brazilian. Jon jones has great athletic ability but he is green doubt he will keep the title long plus he wrestled in college that means he probably has an IQ higher than room temperature unlike most blacks in the NFL/NBA

  71. Muay, I think you have your muscle fibers reversed, it is West Africans who have more fast-twitch fibers (sprinters) and East Africans who have more slow-twitch fibers (marathoners).

    BTW, great post.

  72. Muay Tyson you are an epic fail. You are lying about being a strength coach. If you were, you would know that fast twitch muscles give you an advantage in explosive sports like basketball and Football and slow twitch is more more endurance based sports like distance running. Even though east African and west African differ in physical stature, they are both black. Vertical jump is one of the best indicators of overall body strength, so besides white high jumpers who specialize in jumping, why are whites are generally not known to jump higher than blacks.

  73. "why are whites are generally not known to jump higher than blacks."

    For the same reason negroes are generally not known to have high-IQs…genetics.

  74. "Even though east African and west African differ in physical stature, they are both black."

    It's funny because when I was in school it was always Latinos who never fought fair.

    "When you allow 6' 5" black men to fight 5' 1" women in MMA then you will see an upturn in black interest."

    (b) that average IQ is considered to equal 100;
    (c) that white average IQ=100

    needless to say I can't recall ever seeing a black greco roman wrestler.

    The same is true for playing offensive line in Football. Wider base allows you to hold your ground better. For that reason, and the fact that O-linemen have to know the playbook almost as well as the quarterback, is why you see so many white guys playing offensive line.

    "LOL Boxing is committing suicide, it's on a death march, and audiences are fleeing."

    I have no horse in the race of boxing vs. UFC; I couldn't care less if one goes and leaves the other. But, hazarding a guess, boxing's decline relative to MMA is most likely due to the fact it is less violent than MMA and people are increasingly becoming more desensitized to the idea of seeing people being beaten senseless and are on the constant quest for more blood. After all, girl-fight videos are popular with everyone, for example.

    Soon, we'll have movie theaters running snuff films! Featuring women, of course.

    Physical, yes, but how much intellect does it require to wrestle your opponent to the ground and pummel him with your fists? Fighting is manifestly low IQ.

    "which is why blacks are not good at it"

    If blacks are uninterested in a sport, how can you imply they are no good at it? That's like saying I'd be no good at throwing the discus, ignoring the fact I care so little about the sport that I would never condition my body to do it.

    "and also why it attracts a higher IQ audience."

    Once you've conducted IQ tests on the meat-heads in the audience and the obviously brain-damaged imbeciles (no, they really do look stupid) in the ring, and have received positive results, only then will I not laugh at that comment.
