    Iowa becoming Alabama of 1960?

    I was going through rosters of BCS schools and found that Iowa has one of the least number of minority football players on its roster. Of course some of this is due to criminals and transfers. As of a matter of fact it is the least an Iowa Squad has had since the 70's. The last 2 recruiting classes show a new trend as well.

    We live in the state of Iowa. When a large percentage of recruits come from this state, what do you expect?

    Re: Iowa becoming Alabama of 1960?

    First of all, what kind of comment is this: "...because of criminals and transfers."

    Yeah, black people are the only ones who commit crimes.

    Second of all, do you have any statistics to show that Iowa is one of the least minority-represented teams in the country?

    Thirdly, how do you know there are fewer black players on the team since the 70s?

    Finally, what's your point?

    Great post!



    Maybe you could provide a link to all these teams that Iowa compares so unfavorably to?

    If you want to take a class on bomb-throwing and pot stirring, Monty hosts one every Tuesday and Thursday at 7 o'clock in his driveway. Maybe you should attend. Worst. Post. Ever.

    Tarheel/Southern.

    expect no answer back from Bobcats.

    remember the bombshell he hinted at last spring only it never came to be? He never returned my calls on that.

    Re: Iowa becoming Alabama of 1960?

    We have no star-bellies either. I think Geoff Geoffroy must immediately institute star-belly sensitivity training and affirmative efforts to recruit star-bellies. Chet Culver can have press conference with furrowed brow and chastise all Iowans who don't drive Subarus and who don't live in Johnson County as being racists. Mari Culver will be smoking in the background.
    And what about Phillipinos? No Phillipinos, Rob Schneider and Neil McCoy are going to protest Iowa and picket the canned corn aisle at grocery stores.

    I am sorry......so many of us are post-racial for whatever reason. What the f&^% is it going to take? Race-baiters should be b*^%-slapped on sight.

    I've only been here since October, so I have no idea what you speak of.
