"YOUNG BLACK COLLEGE FeeTBALL THUGS"!
"YOUNG BLACK THUGS" may bring SABAN DOwn!
By Paul Kersey.
‘Black sheep battle: Disgraced Penn State faces disgraced Ohio State today’(Oct. 27). It’s a pattern.
The political class may be focused on Ohio to see how polls shift in the Presidential race. But there’s only one poll Ohioans care about: the Associated Press college football poll. The coach of their Ohio State University football team is the only man whose approval rating worries them all year around.
He’s Urban Meyer, whose salary of $4 million a year—an order of magnitude greater than the commander-in-chief of the United States military—is designed to inspire him to restore luster to one of the most profitable college football programs in America.(According to the Memphis Business Journal, Ohio State logged $63 million in revenue in 2011.)
After “Tattoo-Gate”—in which a number of black Ohio State football players traded their autographs and memorabilia for free tattoos, a violation of their amateur status—then head coach Jim Tressel, known as the “Senator” for his high approval rating in Ohio, was fired in 2011. Ohio State was placed on probation by the NCAA for three years.
Enter Urban Meyer, widely considered one of the top coaches in football. Having led the University of Florida to two national championships, Meyer mysteriously resigned after a lackluster 2010 season. One of the unstated reasons: the thug culture present during his tenure.
Meyer had recruited back-to-back all-black signing classes (2009 and 2010), at a school whose enrollment is less than five percent black male.(At least his 2008 recruiting class had one non-black player: the white kicker!)
Inevitably, Florida came under intense scrutiny for the off-field problems of Meyer’s black athletes. The Orlando Sentinel details their off-the-field arrests: A list of Florida Gators arrested during Urban Meyer’s tenure By Jeremy Fowler and Rachel George September 17, 2010. It’s three pages long and includes, besides drug and alcohol charges, aggravated stalking, felony burglary of an occupied dwelling, felony counts of burglary, larceny and obstruction of justice, felony domestic violence by strangulation, felony theft, aggravated assault, battery and use of display of a concealed weapon.
But don’t worry! The Gainesville Sun absolved the Gators—because players at the other almost all-black Southeastern Conference (SEC) teams like Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee were doing the exact same thing![Are the Gators getting a bad rap on crime?, By Kevin Brockway Staff, June 14, 2009]
Here’s a tellingly ironic account of this year’s recent matchup between Meyer’s previous and current teams:
“Trash talking is as old as football itself. A player baiting another player with a taunt or threat is usually par for the course during any game, especially a game between rivals or with championship significance.
“So, it was no surprise that Monday’s Gator Bowl between Florida and Ohio State — two teams that have loved Urban Meyer — had a little more vitriol than usual. What was surprising was the type of caustic comments being said.
“Ohio State linebacker Tyler Moeller said Florida players hurled racial slurs at him throughout the game and that that sparked some of the chippiness during the 24-17 Florida win.
