Weekly Update

Ladies and Gentlemen –

After a number of emails from my beloved fans concerning the latest news from around the country and the college coaching world, I feel it is about time that I address the issue of color in college sports.

I know that many of you feel that this is a touchy subject, and I may even lose a number of fans over this article, but it has to be addressed.

Yes, I am prejudiced.
Call me whatever other names you want, but I am most definitely prejudiced when it comes to peoples color or colors as it may be.

I will always gravitate more to people of my own color because we share the same culture and history.
We may not be related by blood, but we are family of the same color.
The people of my color are my brothers, my sisters, my family.

I admit it; I would rather hire someone of my own color over those of another color.
Why? Because I am more comfortable with people of my own color and quite frankly some people of color I simply don’t want around me.
You all know who I am talking about.

I have no respect for people that aren’t proud of their color or colors as it may be.

I am tolerant of some colors and completely intolerant of others.
Sure, I have friends of other colors, but do I trust them completely? With few exceptions, I don’t trust them as much as people of my own color.

I know that some people hate me because of my color and I don’t care.

Please do not think this feeling is limited to my beloved South.
The folks I have met from Michigan and Ohio are some of the most prejudiced people in the world when it comes to color.
You know it too.
And Honestly, I am O.K. with that.

The bottom line for me when it comes to color is simply this:
If you are not Crimson and White, then you aren’t family.

I hope this helped.
