Haha iconic con job by Bishop Sycamore. That coach talked his way into a contract and affirmative action hires at ESPN didn't bother to do any research on his team! Funny all around!

It gets better. Of course there was never a school, class or even football practice, just games with everyone sleeping on a motel floor while the "coach" passed bounced checks. ESPN airing this shows how the industry is a complete joke. They believed that this school was full of division 1 prospects when most of the "kids" were around 20. Of course there will be a Netflix documentary about this and some people will get paid. Screenshot_20210831-162147.png

Read an article on Arch Manning today. Seems like a he has a good head on his shoulders. It will be nice to have another Manning to root for.

ESPN 2 will carry a high school game tonight at 8 et. It is Bixby, Okalhoma vs Jenks, Okalhoma. Bixby has a 58-game winning streak on the line. Bixby has the Hasz brothers, Luke is a 4-star TE, and Dylan is a 3-star safety.

Thanks for the heads up. These are local suburban teams near me. Jenks is a perennial power that won the last 2 state championships at the largest classification. Bixby just moved up this year, after dominating at a tier below. I’m sure both teams will field predominately White teams, although Jenks has gradually darkened over the years.

Jenks High School provides an excellent example of how the caste system works. they’re a consistently good team, frequently amongst the Oklahoma elite, and it is not uncommon for them to have a very productive, talented roster with some legitimate collegiate prospects. what’s interesting, should an “investigative journalist” ever choose to research it (i discount the posters here who have already done so, including myself), is that when their tailback is White he’s a “product of the system, running behind a good offensive line, etc.” however, when he’s black, he’s inevitably recruited to a Division One program.

anyone can see this quite readily, should they just have eyes to see. but, there again, i’m told by (((the powers that be))) that pattern recognition is a “tool of White supremacy.”

I’m not sure how they hand out these star rankings. I’ve seen black kids who were far from the best players on a NJ high school squad get a three star ranking and get scholarships and the white kids ended up at perennial football powerhouses like Montclair State.
Now clearly there are plenty of talented black kids playing football but to think the star rankings are purely on merit and color blind would be ridiculously naive. Especially after reading the well documented cases you have printed here.

since there were no follow up posts regarding the Oklahoma game, does that mean it was a poor showing for our guys?
