blk, i definitly feel that article and can say i saw the very same thing happening at my undergrad campus...for example there were a handful of us that new "what we were getting into" by attending a medium sized private new england school, b/c we had been at high schools that prepped us for the experience...with that i think it was alot easier for me and couple of my firends to develop friendships/networks/relationships with non-minority peers, professors and non-minority/black groups.....then there was an even larger group of black students that only hung out with other black students and participated in black/minortiy organizations....i think that these organizations are great outlets for us on predominatly white campuses, but reality is that this is still a white man's world and after graduation AHANA (minority assoc. on my campus) won't be there to help you with obtaining a job and all that good stuff.....so in my eyes the problem is, is that minority (black/latino) students aren't being forced to mingle/integrate, whatever you want to call it with the masses at predominatly white schools and are therefore a couple of steps behind when graduation roles around....i hope i don't sound "uncle tommish" or anything, but that's just how i feel...i hated going to a high school where my graduating class only had 5 blacks out of 105, but i learned alot through the experience and am able to appreciate where i come from even more......

Do you think it matters if you mingle with whites? Join their frat...go to their church....play golf with them on the weekend...date them.....live with them...etc? Do you think that's going to give you and edge?

You would have lost to LSU that year, luckily you all were TOO scared to play them.

guy, the presidency is going to your head - USC is never scared to play anyone; but for the contractual obligatoin that he coaches were under, the coaches would have voted USC as a concensus #1 (period)

Did none of y'all see what SC did to Oklahoma. I don't think LSU or anybody else wants a piece of that.

Hey 3peat, where you headed? I think we were considering some of the same schools, but I am likely headed to UT

If UT play SC next year it would be the best, but I doubt it.

That's weak. My school won the national championship in football. You people are pathetic.

mine won 2 going for a 3rd  ;D

NOOOOO! You guys won 1 BCS championship. Y'all didn't win 2!

we are the people's champion.  the only reason we didnt win the BCS was because the coaches were under a CONTRACTUAL obligation to vote for lsu, not because they were the best ;)

You would have lost to LSU that year, luckily you all were TOO scared to play them.

Didnt LSU challenge you after they won.  USC is big talk NOW, but a few years ago they were the doormat.  Do you have signed sworn statements from every Div I coach that says they would have voted for USC??????????

fine but you dont have sworn statements from the coaches saying they would not have changed their vote for USC.  ;D

That is why in a couple of months you are going to be Oklahoma's bit*h. ;D
