The NCAA reported today that upcoming rules changes will prohibit white athletes from playing defensive back or running back. The NCAA spokesperson said it “has come to a point that we simply had to face the fact that white athletes do not have the speed to play these positions. It is a cruel position to place these white kids in, expecting them to run as fast as the black kids. We feel that the white kids need to concentrate on what they can actually accomplish on the field. We believe that they can continue to make valuable contributions on the offensive line or as medical trainers.”
The spokesperson said no determination has been made for bi-racial kids, though the rules committee was leaning in the direction of allowing them to play these positions in a back-up role only. “If a black running back or defensive back is hurt while competing, bi-racial kids will likely be allowed to replace them on an emergency basis,” the spokesperson said. “However, we have not completed the full discussion on that issue”, she added.
College football experts agree that the recent comments of Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry were the tipping point for the rules change. Former coach Darrell Roman deadpanned, “well those big fat white kids cain’t do nothing but play line anyway, everbody knows that, that is if you know even one dang thang about football. That military fella just finally said it where we could all hear it.”
