ALL HAIL CHRIS LEAK THE NEW CHAMP ‘RASPBERRIES’ FOR TROY SMITH AFRICAN AMERICANS DON’T NEED ANOTHER TIGER WOODS ‘TYPE’

IT’S BEEN A LONG ROAD

What is the Difference between

Chris Leak + JaMarcus Russell

and Troy Smith …….

Leak & Russell don’t go around

denying they are Black Quarterbacks

and now we are left with

TWO Winners and a Loser

Sweet Divine Justice

Both Chris Leak and JaMarcus Russell ended their college careers with the best game of their lives and Troy Smith with the worst of his after making it a point to let the world know he does NOT want to ever be known as an African American Quarterback and he does NOT want to be associated with other Black Quarterbacks who broke that Barrier so he could play the position.

We don’t need to repeat Troy Smith’s comments they are in the Black Box from two days ago and widely quoted elsewhere and especially by Bill Rhoden in the NY Times Sunday. Had Smith capped his college career with the great victory he and almost everyone else expected in the BCS Championship his views would have held tremendous clout.

Troy Smith would have been on the verge of becoming the NFL’s version of Tiger Woods denying his racial heritage to court favor for himself with white owners and white marketing conglomerates. And getting away with it.

Instead Troy Smith was humiliated Monday evening. Or should we say he humiliated himself with his listless performance. It will definitely hurt his standing in the 2007 NFL Draft and make him less attractive to advertisers. Not that Smith won’t be drafted nor that he won’t still get lucrative marketing deals. Just not on the level he would have had he led Ohio State to victory in the BCS Championship as he has so many times before. These last 3 seasons.

Before Smith got it into his head

to trash other Black Quarterbacks

for being proud to be African Americans

who have succeeded at Quarterback

And it could not have been more ironic that it was Chris Leak who LEAD Florida to their lopsided upset victory over Ohio State 41-14. As even the White Broadcasting team announced to the huge national tv audience.

Had it been up to Florida fans and Florida alumni in spite of how good Chris Leak is White Florida would have GLEEFULLY dumped him this season in favor of a White Freshman who had never played in a single college game Tim Tebow.

There was a MASSIVE campaign

in Florida this spring and summer

to DUMP Chris Leak

As it was all season long Leak was forced to endure taking Florida down the field to within yards of a Touchdown only to have Urban Meyer take him out in favor of Tim Tebow. For all of that Tebow scored 5 TDs to Chris Leak’s 23 TDs. And even as the BCS Announcers freely admitted had Tebow rather than Leak been Florida’s Starting Quarterback this season Florida would have NEVER done what Leak did lead them to the National Championship.

Too bad Troy Smith was not the Florida Quarterback the last few years instead of at Ohio State. It would have been interesting to see how he would have reacted to all the same talk about benching him in favor of an untested Freshman Tim Tebow. Who “happened” to be White.

There is NO proof at all

Troy Smith suffered Monday

because of his misguided statements

AND NEITHER THAT HE DIDN’T

but if Troy Smith is Smart ( ?? )

he’ll shut up and stop

embarrassing himself
