umm, no ****ing way this is real, right?
Could we move this or at least the relevant posts out of the island?
CU would get eviscerated if this came out.
I would - but my mod tools are busted right now
Let's get it to the DP.
The DP would still figure out a way to make this CU's fault.
The double standard is frustrating in the local media. This would be a major, major headline in Boulder.
However, I guess it goes to show who is still the top dog in these parts.
Where did you find these sNc?
Dear God, can you imagine if those quotes had come from Barney? Or worse yet, McCartney? :wow:
I'd be very curious to know whether these came from Graham or McElwaine, or if each was responsible for part of the comments. The letter really doesn't specify.
It would also be interesting to know if the "former black alumni" are formerly alumni or formerly black, and what precipitated their change of status in either case. But that's really another subject for another time, I suppose...
Someone posted it on the CSU rivals site
The letter to Frank said that the second comment (pot smokers) was Graham and the third comment (never seen a stable home) was McElwain.
the third comment almost had to be McElwain, since it talked about recruiting. The first one isn't good if it comes from either one of them - both of them should be looking at improving graduation rates. But I have a feeling Graham can't be bothered with things like that - he has a stadium to build.
this is clearly not as bad as saying that a certain female kicker was not only a girl, but terrible [at kicking].
for ****s & giggles I just posted the link to that letter over on ramnation -
will be curious to see how those ****ers spin it....
CSU has a rivals site?
So it sounds like it was actually true and CSU apologized for it, and hired a couple African-Americans to make up for it.
Quality cover up imo
Easier to cover up when no one really cares about your institution.
If this was CU the satellite trucks would still be parked on campus and Rick Riley would write stories demanding that people be fired. Ceal Barry would have stripped the football team of 5 scholarships and put the entire team on 2 years of probation just because.
Apparently it's "all extortion" and a "vile marketing effort"
That kind of thing does happen (see Jackson, Jesse). But irregardless, you still have that 33% graduation rate for CSU's black athletes to address. If that statistic is true, it's appalling.
rep for cross-thread continuation...
literally a pathetic attempt at rep whoring by nik....
The more I think about this, the more angry I get. It is just infuriating that CSu gets a pass on almost everything negative about their program, whereas CU's transgressions get blown up to epic proportions by the local media. I get and appreciate that CU is the bigger story in the State - but the 'little engine that could' narrative with CSU over the past 15 years is enough to make me puke.
CU 55 sheep 17... and their coach will be so upset that he'll burn a cross in his own front yard by mistake.
Nice try, but you're not Orr
I'm having a hard time believing those guys said those things.
