Looks like the whole site is down, not sure if it is related to the article or not.

Maybe they are changing the name of the paper to Crimson White & Every Now & Then Black.

The site is back up, however the article currently is not there.

I suspect that for some reason they think that they have to take down the whole site to remove the article.

Either that or some changes were made & an incorrect hyperlink exists.

The article is there again.

You may wish to remove your stuff from here due to copyright deals.

I've always wondered the same thing..

I guess so many people, white and black, worship football success so highly that they turn a blind eye to the history of racism at that school.

In the rarified atmosphere that is Crimson Tide football, being on the football team is not like being a mere mortal everyday student. It wasn't in 1960 and I doubt anything has changed much in that regard since. The primo status the star athletes enjoyed in high school is magnified and accentuated even more in college. The reality is that the team "family" is the most desegregated aspect of the campus, or the society around it.

The girls (or guys) who will do almost anything to curry their favor are not limited to one race or social class. Need a "paper" written? No problem - one can be found to provide that service. Since athletes have their choice of faculty to have for classes, it may well be the the source of their "work" may not be closely examined. The current issue of "S I" is examining this aspect of college football - mainly at OK State - but it is only a problem if the coaches are arranging these "aids to education" rather than just being voluntarily provided by "football mad" fellow students on their own.

My nephew, who was on a swimming scholarship at Bama, complained to his dad that when he returned to Bryant Hall after morning workouts and a couple of (premed) classes, he had difficulty finding a room that was not in use by an athlete and an "admirer" so he could get some sleep.

bingo!

...and why my successful businessman of a bro-in-law, who was abused and discriminated against by the machine when he was at UAT spends thousands and thousands of dollars on skyboxes and memorabilia is beyond me.
