Meyer’s Ohio State, O'Brien’s Penn State Rebound—But One Is Headed In An Anti-White Direction
The college football season has ended for Ohio State and Penn State Universities. Both are on probation—so, despite each program’s winning record on the field, neither can compete in a post-season bowl game.
But, I’ve noted at VDARE.com in two pieces (Penn State’s Disgrace Leads To A Whiter Football Team—Which May Make Them A Winner Again and “Urban” College Football No Longer Serves “Educational” Purpose—Pull Tax-Deductible Status!) the future looks vastly different in Happy Valley and Columbus.
Penn State finished 8-4 (after starting 0-2). I noted that the transfer of many of the team’s starters—after the Jerry Sandusky Affair—opened the door for white players to start at positions normally set aside for blacks, because of the now-dominant prejudice against whites.
Proof: white sophomore running back Zack Zwinak, who ended up being one of the heroes for Penn State’s resurgent program. [Off Campus: Emotional finale for players who stuck with Penn State, by Mike Jensen, Philadelphia Inquirer, 11-25-12]
New Nittany Lions head coach Bill O'Brien last year served as the offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots. Perhaps not coincidentally, in the past couple of decade the Patriots have started more white players at “skill” offensive positions then any other team in the NFL. (As I noted in Superbowl 2012: NE Patriots vs. NY Giants—And Anti-White Stereotypes).
This anti-white bias in evaluating high school athletes for certain positions, like running back and receiver on offense and safety and corner on defense, exists in the NFL as well—see my Tim Tebow: Bucking The NFL’s Anti-White Bias.
Which brings us to Ohio State. Coach Urban Meyer’s first year with the Buckeyes was a perfect season. But, ominously, he said this of the Big Ten Conference in which both Ohio State and Penn State compete:
"There are great players in this league, but not enough," Meyer said about the Big Ten. "The quality is very good. The quantity is in the SEC [Southeastern Conference]. We don’t have the abundance right now. . . . I think, the Big Ten, it’s time to jump to it." [Ohio State's Meyer says Big Ten needs to get more quality players, by Bob Wolfley, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, November 14, 2012]
As I noted in a recent piece on VDARE.com, what “quantity” actually means in the SEC is—being black. I wrote:
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.
So does Urban Meyer mean that Ohio State—which has, over the past 10 years, started more white players then other powerhouse college football teams—must recruit more black players?
Yes, that’s exactly what he means. Meyer believes that only black athletes have the intangibles necessary to produce a winning team, the quality coaches and scouts call “speed”.
Urban Meyer is about to remake the Ohio State football program in the image of an SEC school.
In contrast, O’Brien’s Penn State might be the first to utilize the system of evaluating players that has made New England a dynasty in the NFL—namely, give whites the chance to play.
As I wrote a year ago at Alternative Right [The Game of the Century/The Consequences of Majority-Black College Football], “speed,” if it’s necessary at all, comes at the price of abandoning academic standards—and accepting inevitable off-field thuggery.
This much is for sure: Urban Meyer would not have given a white running back like Penn State’s Zack Zwinak a second glance.
And yes—it’s because Meyer is prejudiced.
