Darwin’s Athletes?: Why College Football Recruiting is an HBD Event

PK: Business Plan coming for the billboard concept. Please understand that for this to work, a certain amount of secrecy must be involved in the negotiation with any advertising company. Yes, there are lawyers involved now. Five cities have been targeted now, with five others under consideration. If you are going to invest in something, it’s important you see where the money will be going. Those of you who have supported SBPDL in the past can see through this sites growth where your investment has gone (the incredible design for the fourth book and the upcoming books on college football, the real reason for Detroit’s Collapse, and Obama’s War on White America are a testament to your investment). 


Things will continue to get worse in this nation, until a dramatic example shakes people from their apathy. 

Their indifference. 

If interested in the billboard campaign, just e-mail me. You need to know where your investment is going. This point forward, no more public discussion of it. To those interested (and who have pledged), e-mail me for the plan. 

Besides, it’ll rattle the cages of Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs), long under the impression that opposition to their progressive dreams has been silenced.

New, longer post coming tonight. Just wanted to bring your attention to an article up at Alternative Right. It’s a preview of a chapter from the forthcoming Opiate of America: College Football in Black and White (cover coming soon). Yesterday was National Signing Day, a holiday for pathetic white men everywhere who follow the recruiting of largely thuggish Black high school athletes (a modern-day version of the slave trade) to see which university they’ll end up committing to play football for, with these same largely white alumni reaching a state of sexual euphoria if they sign with their alma mater.

One such Black player was Roger Lewis, who won’t be signing with any school:

A Division I football recruit who was expected to make his college choice on Wednesday’s National Signing Day festivities was instead in jail, being held on two charges of rape.

As first reported by ThisWeek Pickerington, and quickly confirmed by a number of other Ohio media outlets, Pickerington (Ohio) Central star Roger Lewis, who helped his team reach Ohio’s Division I state football title game in 2011, has been charged with two first-degree felony charges of rape, both of the same female acquaintance. Like the alleged victim, Lewis is 18 and is being charged as an adult after a nearly month-long investigation by Pickerington Police.

The victim has been described only as a fellow Pickerington High student. She alleges she was raped both in December 2011 and again on Jan. 6.

On Tuesday night, Lewis was being held on $250,000 bond at Fairfield County Jail and was expected to be arraigned on Wednesday.

That’s a long ways (at least metaphorically speaking) from the signing day ceremony he was expected to attend at Pickerington Central, where Lewis was expected to choose between scholarship offers from Ohio University, Marshall and Bowling Green. The wide receiver prospect also holds scholarship offers from 14 other schools, including the likes of Ohio State, West Virginia and Arizona, stacking up well against a number of other top wide receiver recruits who made their college decisions on Wednesday.

 The piece at Alternative Right is one that is a glimpse of the larger chapter. Soon, I’ll post a glimpse of the chapter on college football coaches who helped paved the way for Black-Run America (BRA). Sports – especially college football and basketball – provide the primary basis for the creation of positive images of Black people, through the hero worship of these athletes.

Well, there’s one reason for this, and you can read about it in (Meat) Market Failure: Recruiting, Genetics, and the White Athlete:

It’s with this thought in mind that we point out that of the top 100 Scout and Rivals high- school prospects (and those players selected to the play in the prestigious Under Armour All-American game, almost 90 percent of them are Black athletes.

Why is this?

Former Auburn University coach Pat Dye wrote in his autobiography, In the Arena—interestingly written, in part, as a response to allegations of racism from Black recruit Eric Ramsey—this about Black athletes:

Another thing I found, I already knew: we live in an age, and it will probably last forever, where the black kids in this region make the difference in football. If there are 10 college prospects in Alabama, seven are gonna be black.

Looking at the current rosters of Auburn and Alabama, Dye’s comment seems to hold true. Both schools boast overwhelmingly White student populations, but both have a disproportionate amount of Black athletes (to the general Black male populations of the school). This holds true for most major schools.

Remember that Rivals and Scout start to evaluate talent as early as the freshmen and sophomore year of high school player, providing star ratings to young men still developing and maturing. Or are they?

In Jon Entine now-classic study Taboo: Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We’re Afraid to Talk About It, he spends the majority of tome talking about why Blacks are better athletes than whites. In passing he notes, curiously:

It’s hardly an irrational leap to suspect that precocious infants will end up as athletically skilled adults, however. Blacks and white do develop different body types at an early age. Numerous studies have found that by age five or six black children consistently excel in the dash, the long jump, and the high jump, all of which require a short burst. By the time boys are teenagers, blacks demonstrate a significantly faster patellar tendon reflex time—the knee jerk response—and an edge in reaction time over whites.

Put simply, Black athletes mature faster than White athletes. In Race, Evolution, and Behavior: A Life History Perspective, J. Phillippe Rushton includes a chapter on Speed of Maturation, which points out that study after study concludes Black people go through puberty well before white people, reaching full sexual maturity at astonishingly young ages. Could this be the reason former Florida State football coach made this remark regarding the paucity of White high-school talent?:

An athlete is an athlete, but, dang it, there just seem to be more black athletes than white,” says Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden. “We’ve got a [white] phenomenon on our team, a quarterback named Danny Kendra, whose vertical jump is 39½ inches—more than anybody else we’ve got. He bench-presses 425 pounds, and his leg press broke the school record. He runs a 4.5 40. But there ain’t many like him. And my thinking is that there’s a whole lot more blacks who can do that than white guys.

Why does this matter? Why mention race at all in a discussion of college football recruiting?

Mike Freeman’s Bowden: How Bobby Bowden Forged a Football Dynasty provides the answer. His chapter Law and Order establishes that the majority of the at-risk students that college-football programs recruit are these Black athletes who have matured physically faster than white athletes, though their mental acumen will forever see a gap remain (as noted by graduation rate racial disparities, despite the same amount of tutoring). Bowden built his reputation, like that of Penn State’s Joe Paterno, on the backs of academically challenged, athletically gifted Black athletes.

This presents a problem: though athletically gifted (thanks to a genetic clock that allows them to mature faster), Black athletes perform inadequately in the classroom. Many boast embarrassingly poor high-school GPAs and standardized-test scores and require special admission to be enrolled into the schools like Florida or Florida State. Though the white athletes being evaluated at Scout and Rivals haven’t reached physical maturity, they perform far better on the academic side of the ball. This is one of the primary reasons the U.S. Military Academies (Army, Navy, and Air Force) have remained so White, when most other big-time college football programs field majority Black teams: put simply, potential Black recruits don’t have the intelligence to get accepted or complete the work once enrolled at these schools.

So the question must be asked: Is there a bias at the big-time college football programs toward Black athletes, since the recruiting services have started evaluating players at ages when the early physical maturation of Blacks give them a pronounced advantage over White players? Well, yes there is.

Tom Lemming, one of the pioneers of evaluating high school football talent, told Michael Lewis in his book The Blind Side that White high-school athletes were discriminated against by college scouts and coaches because they couldn’t possibly be as a fast as black athletes. He said the same thing to The Chicago Sun Times, By Taylor Bell; he said the same thing to the South Bend Tribune.

Consider that two of the top receivers in the National Football League (NFL), the Green Bay Packers Jordy Nelson and the New England Patriot’s Wes Welker, went virtually un- recruited out of high school. Welker—who was Oklahoma’s High School Player of the Year his senior season—got a scholarship to Texas Tech. Nelson had to walk-on at Kansas State. Both are White athletes.

Consider that arguably the best linebacker in the NFL, the Packer’s Clay Matthews, was a walk-on at the University of Southern California and didn’t even see the field until his senior year. In the October 2011 issue of Muscle and Fitness magazine, Matthews let slip a crucial point:

There’s this kid you know. A high school senior. Plays football hard, but he’s nothing special on the field. He’s around six feet in cleats, maybe tops out at 200 pounds after dinner, and he’s neither fast enough to be anyone’s idea of a bit-time, blue-chip prospect.

“I knew I wanted to play at USC from when I was a kid,” he [Matthews said, though he’d have to walk-on for this dream to occur] said.
“I told him to go for it,” says Charlie Wegher, who’s coached football at Agoura High for the past 18 years, “but honestly, I didn’t think he’d get a chance to play much because USC doesn’t typically have those kinds of kids.”

So Matthews wasn’t a Rivals or Scout “Five Star” athlete, a “can’t miss” prospect with an NFL-ready future stamped on him before he even played a down of college football, like the many high-school athletes who will be signing with big-time colleges and universities around the nation today. 

He was one of “those kinds of kids.” Meaning one of those often overlooked White kids from the suburbs who hasn’t physically matured yet, at least compared to the seemingly extra-ordinary Black athletes that Rivals and Scout have evaluated as the top talent of the 2012 high school crop.

Something tells me there is a market for undervalued White players that aren’t highly sought after commodities by the big-time schools only on the prowl for academically marginal Black athletes to use and abuse for football glory.

Knowing that the New England Patriots Bill Belichick has built a franchise based around undervalued White talent, the smaller college football programs, without massive budgets to spend on hyped high-school athletes, and which hope to keep up with the Michigans, Oregons, LSUs should start considering cultivating White athletic talent that has been overlooked by recruiting services in favor of the low-hanging fruit we should just call “Darwin’s Athlete’s.”

For one thing, signing undervalued White high school talent will require less of an investment in academics and an even less amount of money to pay for their unnecessary legal teams (consider the high rate of arrests for Black players at UGA, Florida, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Penn State).

Another thing, if you’re a fan or alumni of one of these schools, you can spend less time on one of the recruiting services like Rivals or Scout, which has gone “all in” on the belief in Black athletic supremacy—truly, one of the most common “social constructs” of our time.

Until a service comes along to evaluate undervalued White players, you have to wonder how many talented suburban players or fly-over country athletes (like Welker and Nelson were) aren’t being courted by big-time schools tomorrow. How many potential NFL linebackers like Matthews, who haven’t physically matured yet, are out there and devoid of a scholarship offer? All because they are one of “those kinds of kids?” Not one of Darwin’s Athletes. Just some white kid.

As Tom Lemming said, “hundreds.”

This article doesn’t touch on Brigham Young, a school that has traditionally recruited white Mormon athletes and molded them into winners. The same could be said for the recent emergence of Boise State, a school that this year started an all-white receiving corps that were lightly-recruited by other schools.

If Rick Reilly can complain about Brigham Young being able to play white athletes (the majority of whom are two or three star players) who have completed their Mormon Mission (two years) and then play football when nature has allowed their bodies to mature, then we at SBPDL can bring up the fact that these Black athletes have nature on their side, momentarily, which creates a competitive advantage over potential white high school recruits.

Looking at Scout.com and its listing of Top 25 schools recruiting classes, you begin to understand why so many “conservative” white people tolerate the destruction of their major cities and will continually move their families from one Whitopia to the next “drifter colony”– because those major cities serve as incubators for the Black athletes who will provide them some grotesque form of sexual relief come National Signing Day.

On Saturday, Vdare.com will publish an article on the New England Patriots. It’s going to be fun. Bill Belichick, the coach of the Patriots, once addressed Urban Meyer’s Florida Gator team (story from Urban’s Way: Urban Meyer, the Florida Gators, and his Plan to Win).

Meyer believed that only recruiting four and five-star recruits could provide the tools necessary to win. In his statement to the Gators team (spring 2007), that was largely addressed to the new – almost exclusively Black – recruits, Belichick said, “Some of you woke up on third base and don’t even know how you there because you did not hit the triple.”

That quote tells me more about Belichick then I’ll ever need to know. He is aware that these Black athletes were treated as Gods in high school, and played against competition that they had largely matured ahead of, which enabled them to get the five-star ranking from Rivals and Scout.

Take a look at Belichick’s team. How many of the key players on the Patriots offense were highly recruited athletes?

Now, how many of those four and five-star Black athletes ended up causing Florida severe off-field problems?:

Numbers mostly flatter Florida football coach Urban Meyer, who has produced two Southeastern Conference championships, three Bowl Championship Series appearances and a couple of national titles in his five-plus years in Gainesville.

Saturday against Kentucky, he figures to get his 100th career victory — in his 118th game, reaching the milestone faster than all but five Hall of Fame coaches, including Bud Wilkinson and Knute Rockne.

But another statistic is more bedeviling: at least 31 off-the-field arrests involving 25 of Meyer’s players dating to the summer of 2005, according to a running count by the Orlando Sentinel. Many have been typical college-years brushes with the law, from alcohol possession to disorderly conduct. But a dozen involved initial charges of felonies or violent misdemeanors, and the run of incidents has shared front-page space with Florida’s on-the-field accomplishments and invited pointed questions about the program’s virtue.

After Florida receiver Chris Rainey was booked last week on a felony charge of aggravated stalking — for allegedly sending an ex-girlfriend a threatening text message — Orlando columnist Mike Bianchi wrote, “Sadly, this outlaw reputation is now the national image of the Florida Gators.”

He added, “Tim Tebow is no longer around to clean up the mess.”
 No, Tebow is not around to clean up the mess. But its not a mess Floridian’s really care about, as long as the Gators win.
