Jon Vilma on 2002 OSU

I felt this deserved its own thread

quote:

Jonathan Vilma on what he thought going into the 2003 Fiesta Bowl: “For us, it was like okay, Ohio State, Big Ten, slow white guys. Who cares? Maurice Clarett, we weren't worried about any of that. We will win by two touchdowns and claim our second national title.”

As a white man, I am conditioned to not care about any attacks thrown at me..... but imagine a white big 10 player saying no big deal just a bunch of dumb black guys.

They may be slow, but they're big up there. I think that's why Midwestern teams used to dominate. All those German, Scandinavian, Polish farm baws. Southern whites are mostly British, smaller on average. Desegregation changed the dynamics completely.

Small sample, but I'm mostly British and Cajun French and I went to a boarding school with a bunch of white Midwestern and northeastern kids, they were all taller than me; but here I'm average

Dunno, sounds pretty close to what SEC fans say about B1G teams on here pretty often.

There are so many good jokes about slow black guys and intellect to make here, but I don't wanna get banned.

It certainly turned out that way but remember Ohio St that year wasn’t exactly blowing up the B1G, they were ecking out some ugly wins against B1G scrubs like Purdue, Illinois Michigan.

I’ve always felt that if MacGhee doesn’t get hurt Miami wins, they were sluggish early but were starting to turn it on

Didnt they have some good black receivers and skill position players on that team?

Isnt Ohio a hot bed for recruiting up north?

If they'd won every game by 30 I'm sure he would've been more concerned about those white guys. But OSU that year was in a dog fight just about every week so I can't really blame him for thinking that. Although I'll say Miami that year was much like 2005 USC in that because of the star power, winning streak, and NC the year before many people overlooked some pretty big weaknesses on those teams, mainly defense

Don’t have to imagine too hard. “Catholic vs Convicts” got a student expelled.

That is not the reason. He was selling the shirts illegally along with several other shirts.

And he had just made it as a walk-on on the ND basketball team. Lost that.

Miami gave up 45 pts to VT that season, needed a wide-left to escape FSU
