Affirmative Action / AA in areas outside of the legal profession...

So now that football season is here I have something I'd like to hear some feedback on...

A job as a player in the NFL is waaay more lucrative than any attorney job, but it's also more competitive.  And just like in the legal profession, where you go to school can have a huge impact on your career prospects right out of college.  However, unlike lawschools, which have for years recognized that the profession they feed needs more diversity, college football teams at these same universities seem to ignore this problem.  Not only are whites and hispanics under represented in the NFL, there IS NOT A SINGLE STARTING RUNNINGBACK IN THE NFL that is white or hispanic.  If a university makes a concentrated effort to produce more minority lawyers and judges, shouldn't they be making a concentrated effort to recruit and train more "minority" running backs?
