Whitlock on the Auburn-and-race controversy

+

Another viewpoint on Auburn, Iowa State and race. A very nuanced and even-handed look at whether Turner Gill would be rushing into the BCS had he taken the Auburn job. (This gets into one of my pet peeves, which is that the Black Coaches' Association doesn't pay enough attention to building up an infrastructure of coordinators and mid-major coaches, but that's neither here nor there.) I don't know that I agree with everything Whitlock says, but it's an interesting take on the situation. He also makes another good point: Where is the outrage over Tommy Tuberville getting fired to begin with? (HT: Georgia Sports Blog)
