Missing One Fact

Waco, Texas

Press release and executive summary of Baylor’s mea culpa.

There is an inverse relationship between having and enforcing academic/conduct standards and winning football games, because having not quite so intelligent fleet-of-foot aggressive impulsive could-rage-out-at-any-time black men on the team is necessary to win.  Or it’s supposedly necessary to win, because when one school sacrifices standards to get an edge, this creates a race to the bottom that exerts pressure on all the other schools to do the same.   It wouldn’t even take one school sacrificing standards, because just in the natural course of things, schools have different standards.  For instance, Harvard is going to be more selective than double directional state college in general, not counting athletic recruiting.  This means that double direction state college’s football team will be better than Harvard’s, because DDSC’s lower admissions standards means that more speedy black skill position players will be admitted.  And this by itself starts the race to the bottom, and if you think I was including Harvard just to be illustrative, well, I didn’t.

One might suggest that colleges deemphasize money making sports, but we have to remember that college football is how a lot of white American men outsource their patriotism, it eats up their/our tribal energy.  If we can’t outsource our patriotism to squads of 17-23 year old young men that are around half black in terms of total team rosters and heavily black in terms of starters, (the reason for the disconnect is that a lot of coaches will give scholarships to whites only to have them be permanent bench warmers because they want whites on the team and wearing uniforms because their presence sorta keeps a disciplinary lid on the blacks that actually do play, it’s the same sort of buffer-cutting effect that forced racial integration in K-12 schools is supposed to accomplish), then white American men might actually have to reach for their own tribe to find a reason to behave tribally.  Who is most scared of that?  You probably won’t want to start looking for the answer to that, unless you like being anti-Semitic.

In the 1970’s, SEC schools were recruiting certain (black) players to avoid having to play against them.

I read somewhere shortly before bear Bryant’s death this accounted for a good deal of his recruiting.
