    Black and White

    I talked with a co worker who is a hawkeye fan..and he said, "We don't have any good players such as any Black players on Iowa...and they are better BB players."

    I really got to thinking...are black atheletes better at basketball overall? Is he right?

    He said we should win by 8.

    Re: Black and White

    I think it depends. Honestly, theres no reason that a white person can't be just as good as a black person. However, how many white pro athletes are there in basketball? Not many, so theres your answer.

    My translation of the OP: "I needed something stupid to post. My life was vaguely incomplete. It still is, but now I've said something stupid."


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Black and White

    It is interesting that lately Iowa brings in more white guys, whereas ISU brings in more African American players. Not racist just an observation.
