Auburn Ticked Off Walker's Rants

We’ve had an interesting week in sports. The Heisman was awarded, the race for the playoffs is burning hot, and Auburn managed to set the civil rights movement back 30 years. While all that is pretty impressive, it’s not even close to being on the level of this edition of Walker’s Rants. That’s right—Walker’s Rants are a go.

 

The rumor is Auburn failed to hire Turner Gill as their head coach, not because he is black, but because he has a white wife. If that is the case, which I believe it to be, I am absolutely sickened by the actions of the board in Auburn. I will never watch or support Auburn as an institution ever again, and I will wish nothing but failure upon that football program. That is absolutely disgusting, and behavior like that cannot be tolerated at any level in this country at this date and time...

 

I don’t mind that Auburn did not hire a black coach, but I do have a problem that Chizik got the job. He does not deserve to be a head coach, and a 10-game losing streak and a 5-19 record do not warrant a promotion...

 

Congratulations to Sam Bradford for winning the Heisman. When you lead an offense as powerful as Oklahoma’s, you should be rewarded for it...

 

There’s nothing wrong with the fact that Tim Tebow didn’t win the Heisman, but there is a problem that 150 voters chose to leave him off their ballots. Seriously? Tebow is not one of the top five players in college football? You’ve got to be kidding me...

 

Not to harp on a single topic, but it is deplorable the lack of black coaches in Division I football. There must be more than four qualified candidates out there to fill openings. Maybe we need more black assistants and coordinators—then they can Will Muschamp their way into a job...

 

Six NBA coaches fired, and we have not reached Christmas. Throw in all the early big name trades, and you have the most active NBA season I can remember...

 

The New York Giants are not slipping because of Plaxico—they are hurting because their offensive and defensive lines are letting them down...

 

The officiating in the NFL has been horrible this season...

 

T.O. is not attacking journalists. That can only end well...

 

Why can’t they just put a camera on the goal line at every NFL stadium? That way we can avoid disasters like we saw Sunday in the Steelers vs. Ravens game...

 

Golf has become so boring that it takes a caddie to spice things up? That’s pretty sad...

 

I am glad we have Charles Barkleys in this world, because even though you may disagree with what he says and he may not be right all the time, at least he is saying something. That is more than you can say for the majority of athletes who are more interested in building their brand and becoming a franchise rather than standing for something they believe in...

 

Wade Philips may not be a solid head coach, but what he has done with the Cowboys defense in the last month is nothing short of impressive...

 

I hate this month of downtime during college football season. Sure wish a playoff was going on...

 

Speaking of playoffs—let’s go Richmond Spiders. At least let one Virginia team brings a championship home...
