Auburn Hire: Barkley Is Right

Much is being made about the hiring of football coach Gene Chizik by Auburn.

Chizik, who was a hot commodity a few years ago after helping Auburn to an undefeated season as their defensive coordinator and then helping Texas to the National Title in the same capacity, is not a choice that has the Auburn faithful enthralled. Certainly, this is due to his 5-19 record as the Head Coach of horrendous Iowa State.

Somehow, Chizik convinced the administration at Auburn that he is the right man for the job.

After interviewing a parade of candidates with head coaching credentials far superior to Chizik, Auburn chose 'the right man' for the job.

Perhaps most indignant were the supporters of Turner Gill. Gill took over a program even worse than Iowa State, and in three years turned Buffalo into conference champions. How could Auburn pass up a miracle worker for a guy who couldn't win in the Big 12 North?

Certainly, the color of Turner Gill's skin had to play a role.

This notion is substantiated by former Auburn basketball great, and Negro, Charles Barkley.

Barkley wasted no time in beating the righteous to the front of the line to point out that racism had to have been a deciding factor in the appointment of Chizik over Gill. How could it not be? The head coaching accomplishments of the men seemed to be diametrically oppositional.

Barkley took a step further. Reporting that in his personal conversation with Gill, Gill mentioned he believed that having a white wife would be a detriment to his getting the job.

Certainly, we couldn't agree more.

And, we are glad that both Barkley and Gill acknowledge that having a white wife could be a disqualifying proposition.

It makes it far easier to accept that Gill's choice of spouse was the determining factor in the job hunt.

Auburn fairly and justly interviewed Gill. They unbiasedly walked him through the process. And, based on perhaps the most important decision a man can make in his life; Auburn chose to go with someone else.

Rather than trust their historic football program to the judgment of a Negro who chose to yoke himself with the burden of the white devil's temptation; Auburn entrusted the program to a coach with one of the worst two year records in the country.

And we at NOIS couldn't agree more.

Gene Chizik is the right man for the job.

For, to trust the future of their program to a man who has thrown away his own future would be the real crime here.

While we believe that a much stronger Negro presence is necessary in the college head coaching ranks, we also believe a hearty thanks is due Auburn.

Thank you, Auburn, for giving a far inferior coach the chance to right your rapidly sinking ship. Even as while he is boarding your ship, his own is sinking.

Turner Gill must be held accountable for his choice of bride.

Hopefully Gill will take this as a learning experience and fully understand that such trivial things as winning conference titles after taking over teams which set record breaking losing streaks and beating 12-0 teams are simply the fluffy part of the resume/bio.

The part of the bio that matters most is the family picture.

The Conference Championships

This weekend past marked the culmination of conference play for those conferences bold enough to mandate a championship game.

The MAC championship proved to be a showdown between a fast rising Negro Head Coach (who happens to be one of the all time great Negro college QB's), Turner Gill, and the best all around QB in college football, Negro QB Nate Davis of previously undefeated Ball State.

Gill and Davis matched wits and tactics in a hard fought game that hinged on turnovers. Ball State's white center had great difficulty in getting Davis the ball on multiple occasions, and his poor snapping led to the end of BSU's undefeated season.

In the Conference USA battle royal, high scoring Tulsa ran into the Negro QB Patrick Pinkney led East Carolina Pirates.

Pinkney threw a key touchdown pass early in the first quarter which proved to be the difference in the game as the Pirates relied on his game management and leadership to win the championship.

In the ACC, it was a rematch of last years game with Va Tech locking horns with Boston College.

In what proved to be the most exciting game of the weekend, Negro QB Tyrod Taylor out dueled Negro QB Dominique Davis. Davis had led BC on a hot streak to get to the game after he was inserted in the line-up to replace a less athletic caucasoid.

The final score was 30-12, in favor of Va Tech. However, the score does not do justice to the incredible skills of both Negro QB's.

Out in Kansas City, the Big 12 Title Game proved to be little more than a formality. Native American (and non-white) QB Sam Bradford continued his assault on the record books in leading the Sooners to yet another 60+ point performance in crushing Mizzou.

Next up for the Sooners will be a crack at the National Title in the BCS Championship game.

Florida beat Alabama to win the SEC.

Secret: The Real Info 'They' Don't Want You To Know

Been awhile since we visited the orbit of planet Jason Whitlock over on

His latest delivery to his readers was a piece detailing the great story of the success of his alma mater's football team. Ball State, led by Negro QB Nate Davis, put together an undefeated regular season; and yet the mainstream media (particularly ESPN) has been loathe to bathe the Cardinals in the BCS-buster glory that some of the teams out West have received in their quests to crash the party of the deep pockets. And, the MSM (ESPN) has been just as delinquent in allowing Nate Davis the opportunity to showcase his worthy inclusion in any and all Heisman discussions.

Whitlock goes on to outline the dubious intentions of a media controlled by the same company that has a vested interest in drumming up viewers for the games it carries on its own networks.

ESPN is so financially tied to the organizations it covers and so devoid of basic journalistic ethics that it cannot properly analyze the sports world. ESPN just bought the BCS television package. It has a vested interest in promoting all things BCS.

Certainly, a fair and honest assessment. It's business. And, mixing business and journalism categorically entails the probability of tainting the journalism. There is no possible way to argue that the accounting books don't hold sway over the reporters' note pads. No possible way to deny it.

Our only problem with Whitlock's interpretation of events is that he doesn't interject the clear racial undertones of the situation. For if he did, he might find that the MSM's (ESPN) handling of the situation really isn't all that big a deal. And, he might find the time to expose the dirtiest secret the MSM (ESPN) is hiding from you.

The BCS buster schools (Utah, Boise State, even TCU and BYU) this season --and recent seasons-- are from white America. They represent white America. They are milk toast. They are flour. They are eggshell. They are latte without the coffee.

Despite being a team led by a Negro QB, Ball State is Midwestern White as can be. Straight out of Hoosiers.

So, the notion that the MSM is short changing Ball State is a bit contrived. How can they be shortchanging Ball State when, in reality, there don't seem to be any inherent covert racial misdoings?

The fact of the matter, which is understandably lost on Ball State alums, is that no one cares.

Ball State plays the most inferior of competition that D-1 has to offer. Traditionally, it is the fourth best D-1 football program in a basketball state.

While we believe Nate Davis should at least get a passing mentioning in the Heisman debate, the reality of the situation is not one of a media actively aligning to dismiss the accomplishments of the Cardinals. But, rather, a media objectively shrugging its collective shoulders and saying: So what?

Unfortunately, while Whitlock was busy using his space on foxsports to complain about the world not caring about the outstanding accomplishment being carried out in Mediocre Land, he could have been telling you about something truly distressing being perpetrated by the MSM (ESPN) and their promotive interests in all things BCS.

Once the season reaches the point that the BCS poll kicks in, all we hear about are BCS rankings. As if the BCS is the only poll of substance in college football. Some will argue, that due to its inclusive nature, it is the only poll of substance.

We would argue that the BCS is not inclusive. That the BCS actively segregates certain polls from being part of their equation.

We would also argue that the BCS does this based on race. Thereby promoting a separate but equal ranking system.

And, what is worse, is that the MSM (ESPN) makes no attempt to propagate the separate poll.

Right now, most of you don't realize this, but Alabama is NOT the number one team in the country.

No, the number one team in the Nation is the Grambling State Tigers.

But, ESPN and the BCS don't want you to know that. They have put all their eggs in one basket and, by blacking out the polls to only show you the ones they want you to accept, they have effectively relegated the debate over who is number one to the select group of teams that they televise and promote.

The SBN Sportsnetwork Poll ranks Grambling the number one team in the Nation. Alabama isn't even in the top 10, yet the MSM (ESPN) chooses not to make you aware of this because it might interfere with the carefully cultivated public perception that the teams in the BCS rankings are the ones that matter and are the ones in contention for the mythical National Title.

Certainly, Ball State not getting much coverage or interest from ESPN is distressing. It might be symptomatic of the overlapping interests of business and journalism in general.

But, so what?

It provides no real opportunity to cast the dark light of racial inquisition.

We wonder if Whitlock would be so quick to mention Ball State if it were not his alma mater.

And, more importantly, we wonder why there was no attempt to point out that Nate Davis is a Negro QB.

Which brings us full circle:

In this case, who really needs to have their journalistic credentials re-evaluated?

Gene Wojciechowski: ESPN's Resident Spin Doctor

Certainly, this blog attracts more insightful and knowledge thirsty readers from around the Nation than, say, So, we fully expect that when we mention the name Gene Wojciechowski, most readers will ask, 'Wojawhatski ?'

As our readers will agree, the Nation can rarely be accused of judging a book by its cover; or in this case, a writer by his name. However, we must make an exception. Gene is a Gene. His first name perfectly captures his writing stylistics. Bland, uneventful, boring. And, his last name, with no discernible pronunciation, perfectly depicts his point of view.

Recent submissions from Gene include a combination romantic love letter to Brett Favre/bandwagon driving advertisement elevating the Jets to elite status after beating the Titans. Of course, everything crashed down a week later. But hey, what 'columnist' doesn't get caught up in the chance to hyperbolize a players performance and punch a teams Super Bowl tickets every now and again (with a whole lot of again)?

Last week Gene took a unique point of view regarding Notre Dame, Charlie Weis and Ty Willingham.

Gene was able to find a cozy spot aboard the ever expanding bandwagon that ND made a huge error in giving Weis that huge extension just roughly halfway into his first season. Nothing unique there.

What is unique is that Gene uses Tyrone's firing after just three seasons to try to argue for ND to retain Weis.

Willingham's tenure was the shortest of any non-interim Notre Dame football coach in the previous 70 years (George O'Leary never coached a game). It was a mistake to fire him then, just as it would be a mistake to fire Weis now.

He argued that ND's usual 5 year commitment to a coach was part of what made the Gold Dome different than other programs. That firing Willingham was something that made ND just like everywhere else.

Notre Dame lost its football DNA and its inner self when it dismissed Willingham four years ago. It compromised a belief. But it's not too late to go retro.

It's not too late to go 'retro'. No indeed.

Retro: short for retrospective. Meaning: involving, relating to, or reminiscent of things past.

You know, things past. Like firing a Negro for 'poor performance', and then letting a white guy who drops it even lower keep the job.

Clearly, Gene longs for the past.

If only ESPN would put him in theirs.

Update: Been Too Long

We have been focusing our efforts on monitoring and helping provide a smooth transition towards freedom for the masses of the Nation.

As the outgoing regime packs its bags and watches its coffers begin to deplete due to a mass exodus of upper class and big business backing; your humble servants at NOIS have been delighted with Potentate-elect Obama's movement towards re-establishing the prosperity of the Clinton administration. Not only have many (all?) of the key players of those days of high cotton and full plates been restored to their rightful roles inside the beltway, but an even more delicious prospect of change looms on the dark horizon.

Obama promised us change that we could believe in, and what better change than resurrecting the good fortunes of the Clinton Era? The appointment of Hillary to Secretary of State should certainly bring back the international good will and respect that Bush so predictably mismanaged. And, the appointment of Hillary could provide the most delicious aspect of the entire Obama administration:

The return of Bill.

Hillary's vacated seat will allow for an appointee to serve the remainder of her term. Who better to represent the good people of New York than William Jefferson Clinton?

Imagine! Hillary in full control of the Nation's foreign affairs, while at the same time Bill becomes a heavy hitter in the Senate...leading the domestic agenda!

Ahhh....change. How glorious!

In keeping with the theme of change, we were caught off guard by the abrupt resignation of Mississippi State's Negro Head Football Coach, Sylvester Croom.

Croom was a virtual miracle worker in Starkville. Given the reigns to a public university in a state in which the education system is measured on the Richter Scale, to be able to field a team at all was an accomplishment. And, to be able to recruit student-athletes from outside the borders of the traditional slave state was a coup as well.

Croom's critics will point to his won-loss record and decry the altitude of the number in the won column. Certainly, if Mississippi State were a 'normalized' university in a 'normalized' state, referencing Croom's winning percentage when evaluating the performance of his program would be fair. But, as the descriptive name of the university tells us, Mississippi State is the land grant university of the State of Mississippi.

The prospects of a Negro Head Coach, who runs a clean program in the State of Mississippi, certainly cannot be compared fairly to....say, a former MSU white head coach who trampled NCAA rules as if they were a Negro at the white folks drinking fountain.

So, so much for the experiment of change in the State of Mississippi. So much for giving the Negro Coach the leeway necessary to make the changes needed to win. So much for understanding that it takes time to change. That winning is a culture, and culture can't be changed in....oh, let's say 4 years.

It's back to the status quo.

Maybe if Croom understood that from day one, maybe he would have surrounded himself with the old guard. Maybe he would have protected himself.

And maybe we could have called that change.
