Last word on Football Forum

Here’s a good wrapup of all that happened at the Football Forum from Yahoo.com.
The front page features a picture of Tyrone Willingham, which as one poster pointed out is the second time in a week UW has been highlighted on Yahoo’s sports page (Jake Locker last week).
Speaking of the Football Forum, a writer for The Bleacher Report has this take on Willingham’s comments on race being a factor in hiring college football coaches. (I’m somewhat hesitant to pass along a story on Willingham by an anonymous writer with a ND bent for all the obvious reasons. But seeing as how I figure someone will pass it along anyway, here you go).
The author, whoever he or she is, points out that Willingham has never hired a minority as a coordinator as head coach at Notre Dame and Washington (and if the writer had done deeper research, I think he/she would have found that was also the case at Stanford). But to be fair to Willingham, the author should also have pointed out that Willingham did try this year, making a well-publicized attempt to lure DeWayne Walker away from UCLA. (So well-publicized that The Sporting News called it a done deal for days).
Here’s a sidebar to the Bleacher Report.
