    If white men are so powerful, why are there so few white CBs & WRs?

    Because they can't run worth a shit?

    Why, because he chooses to expose the racism of college athletics?

    Blacks are physically superior and whites are mentally superior?

    Couple things:

    1. Conference commissioners and athletic directors are by and large business/marketing majors. Guys like USC's Mike Garrett? Rare, whether they're white or black. Often they're people who never played college sports at all.

    2. I have no idea what role university presidents, who oversee a helluva lot more than just sports, have in this study. The low numbers are cause for concern, but they don't belong in this study.

    3. Why are "historically black colleges" - where in fact many black administrators and academics attend and lead - excluded?

    4. It is cynical to use the "black player percentage" as a benchmark. The reverse of that logic bascially excludes a black coach from ever leading most Olympic-sport college teams other than track. And a black golf coach? A quarter of college basketball team has black coaches - and that excludes the historical black colleges? Folks, that's a damn good number.

    We're not there. But don't tilt too much at this windmill.
