LEXINGTON, Ky. — I’m about sick of Notre Dame …How many top black high school football players, even the ones who are academically sound, do they think will come to Notre Dame now?

The better question is who can successfully coach the Fighting Irish anyway? With their brutal schedule through 2007, lack of competitive talent to play that schedule, who besides the figure depicted on the building between the goalposts do they think can turn this team around?

Just because its “Notre Dame” is not good enough anymore… The Irish are in a hole they may never be able to get out of for reasons that go far beyond having the right coach at the helm. Urban Meyer agrees.

Oh, and before I forget, I know everyone is upset because Tyrone got a raw deal by not having the opportunity to finish his contract. But remember, a whole lot of white coaches were fired this season as well and every coach that was fired, including the three black ones, all had one thing in common…losing records.

If you want to be a head coach at the big time level you better be prepared to win or be prepared to get fired. The NCAA, NFL, NBA, MLB, or individual schools and teams cannot and must not institute policies that protect black coaches in any way. As black as I am, I would never support such a thing and neither would a black coach worth is weight as a coach.

Hey, Barry Bonds!… Brother, your life is about to be turned upside down for real. As the madness begins to restore the integrity of the game, we’ll be hearing and reading less and less about Jason Giambi, Ken Caminiti, Lyle Alzado, Jose Canseco, and Mark McGuire and more and more about you and it won’t be nice.

By continuing to insult everyone’s intelligence with this “I didn’t know” act, you are killing what little credibility you may have left… Man up. Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, and Bobby Bonds; all men you idolize, are not pleased.

After the New Orleans Hornets play the Chicago Bulls in a couple of weeks, me and four of my boys from back in the day got next and I’m telling you right now…don’t bet against us.

This is America… things are always going to be about race on some level. The simple fact that race always comes up in the first place proves that…doesn’t it?
