Without Tim Tebow and Riley Cooper at the University of Florida form 2006-2009, the predominately white university would have been represented by an overwhelming sea of Blackness of the football field. Indeed, in 2010 Urban Meyer cobbled together a completely Black recruiting class of athletes who would not be allowed to step foot on a college campus (if admission was predicated upon their high school transcripts) were they not wearing Nike cleats.

Now, Sporting News has published a devastating expose of life at the new Thug U, and the type of Black culture Urban Meyer allowed to exist. From Champs to Chomped: How Urban Meyer Broke Florida Football by Matt Hayes could be about any Southeastern Conference (SEC), Big 12, Big 10, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Big East, or Pac-12 school:
The uproar and controversy of Urban Meyer’s stunning recruiting coup at Ohio State settled in and Stefon Diggs, still on the Buckeyes' wish list, was debating his future.
Diggs, the second-highest rated wide receiver in the country, had narrowed his list of potential schools to Maryland, Florida and Ohio State. For more than a week following National Signing Day on Feb. 1, and before Diggs eventually signed with Maryland, Meyer relentlessly pursued Diggs.
Multiple sources told Sporting News that Meyer—who won two national championships in six years at Florida and cemented his legacy as one of the game’s greatest coaches—told the Diggs family that he wouldn’t let his son go to Florida because of significant character issues in the locker room.
Character issues that we now know were fueled by a culture Meyer created.
Character issues that gutted what was four years earlier the most powerful program in college football.
These Black players do not belong at a Historical Black College or University (HBCU), never mind an SEC school. It's embarrassing, yet primarily white residents of these states heap adoration, admiration, and God-like status upon these Black young men -- who are the sons of the Black people they have no desire living near.
It's funny: SEC and ACC alumni, students, and fans have no problem making fun of rival schools Black thug athletes, but get incredible defensive when you dare criticize their beloved Black thug athletes.
So how do you fix the problem? Simple.
Ban on collegiate athletics for five years. Throw at all the corrupt coaches who have climbed their way to the top of athletics by relying on primarily thug athletes (this goes for college basketball too) to survive. Ban them from the game for life -- starting with every member of the Bowden family.
Funny: Urban Meyer is now the coach of Ohio State, a football program whose white players were racially targeted for mocking by his former Black team - that he recruited - in the 2012 Gator Bowl.
It's time to finish The Opiate of America: College Football in Black and White so I can wash my hands of this disgusting sport forever.
The days of yelling Roll Tide; Go Dawgs, Sic' em; Woooo, Pig Sooey!; War Eagle; or some other inane chant before the kick-off of a football game played by athletes who have no business representing these universities is over.
At least for me.
Ban college sports for five years, save lacrosse, rowing, baseball and wrestling. Non-revenue sports get the ax too. Sorry ladies.
At the very least, get rid of athletic based college scholarships.
