Eyes Closed in College Football

The Black Coaches Association has reported its results from its annual study of college sports. The numbers in college football are just flat out troubling.

There are currently only 3 head coaches in the 119 Division I-A football schools. Only UCLA's Karl Dorrell, Mississippi's Sylvester Croom and Washington's Tyron Willingham.

And in Division I-AA only one. Indiana State's Lou West.

If you don't think there is a problem ... you've also got your eyes closed.

In Division I-AA there is more than one black head coach. The report said that West was the only black coach at a non-historically black college in D-IAA. But that's still awfully sad.

Yes there are more than one black coach in I-AA...but like you said, they all coach at HBCU's. No HBCU's have white coaches, so they shouldn't count in this study. College football is a mess with this and the stupid BCS. Schmidty, you need to talk to these fools and get something done! I'm still appalled that there are 4 coaches in all of D-1 other than at the HBCU's. If that ain't a problem, somebody needs to tell me why?

Is it appalling that whites make up such a low percentage of Division 1 and 1A football players as compared to the general population? Why is it appalling that there is a low percentage of coaches that happen to be black? Are there rampant cases of blacks being turned away from applying to these jobs or is there a low number of football coach job applicants that are black?
