    okay ... try this thought experiment.

    1) picture a defensive back in college football.

    2) now imagine he's the leading tackler for Purdue as a first-year starter.

    3) now picture him leading the Big Ten in interceptions as a sophomore.

    4) now visualize him being recognized as his team's defensive MVP.

    got it?

    5) now, picture a walk-on.

    did that change the picture?

    all of the above things are actually true and embodied by Landon Feichter. you don't have to imagine them at all, but it is hard to imagine how a player this talented wasn't recruited by a single Division One program.

    i should correct myself. it would be hard to imagine, if i didn't understand how the Caste System actively shuns White athletes at "black" positions.

    Feichter, who had to walk on at Purdue, was a two-time First-Team All-State, 6-feet, 170-pound athlete with 4.45 speed coming out of high school. so it wasn't as if he was an unknown commodity. but he was unwanted.

    once he got on campus, though, it didn't take him long to make an impact. it just took him a while to get a scholarship ... it's allegedly coming this spring.

    as it stands, Feichter dominated on the scout team during his redshirt year, earned 1 start and 25 tackles (22 solo) as a redshirt freshman, and took over the starting (racially-appropriate) safety spot this season as a sophomore. he led the Boilermakers with 80 tackles (54 solo) and led the Big Ten with 4 interceptions. with his size and speed, he might even be a better fit at cornerback, but at least he's getting on the field. and dominating.

    not bad for a guy who wasn't "talented" enough to be offered a scholarship. by anyone.

    Nice catch JC. I was not aware of this guy and I follow the Big 10 a bit. Reminds me of Jordan Kovacs at Michigan. Another walk on who turned out to be the best DB on the team.

    This situation begs some questions.

    What is the method for evaluating HS talent if so many obvious blue chip players are being missed? I understand it's anti-White racism at work but how does it manage to have any staying power? A few talented White guys are not going to tip over the pro-black applecart that the big schools need so as to fill their student body with dark diversity.

    What is the cost to White middle class parents in missed scholarships for their kids that instead unfairly go to black kids who are also usually worse students?

    Is there such a thing as a black "walk-on" player? I have never heard of one. Has anyone else?

    If there are virtually no black walk-on players, and they are instead all White kids, and if some of them are obviously deserving, then wouldn't it be a good idea for some lawyer somewhere to crunch the numbers and file a class action lawsuit claiming anti-White discrimination?
