I find all the kerfuffle over the lack of white running backs to be non-sense. Lets be realistic people. When Old Bear Bryant realised that Bama wasn't going to win anymore national titles unless he had black kids on his team, he learned the words to "we shall overcome" real quick. The idea that coaches are conspiring to overlook white players in favour of black players is as foolish as the proposition that in today's age (for the most part) employers overlook qualified black job applicants in favour of white job applicants. I remember Scot Lockwood was the starting tailback at USC in the late 1980's. remember Jason Seahorn at cornerback, and Gary Wellman and Eric Affolter at WR? All supposedly "black positions" played very well by white guys so if the talent is there, then you will play. There is an economic incentive here that many of you are not considering. You play the best players that will help you win, black or white, Even a racist like Bryant could see that and was smart enough (eventually) to put his personal feelings second to the success of the team. Sports has always been the one area where overwhelmingly, the best player plays. This is why racists looked the other way when Jackie Robinson learned how to pick up a bat and swing it. If you wish to believe steroetypes then do not bother to reply to this message. I would like serious debate from mature people, not those with a grudge against people of color. I do hope that Sam McGuffie puts up large numbers in college because I would like to see more white running backs doing well, maybe win a Heisman at USC. I would also like to see more black coaches in college too.
