    Unfortunately, as a white male and season ticket holder I agree with your assesment regards to Tom’s article. Don’t blame the african american males for poor coaching! “New Era”? No doubt he was discribing the young black male athletes who compete on our team. I don’t fault Shark or Altman for trying to help these young men but it’s an insult to african americans when such code words are used. Fact! Tom, can get away with it since OWH readership is 99% white. Fact! It’s now obvious to me he’s a racist. As the author Tim White would state; Tom’s living as the rest of us whites are with, “White Privledge”. Tom, if you wish to be honest, be honest and say the obvious. Dealing with young black males who come from difficult backgrounds. Or maybe we should just recruit white athletes and hope for the best! “New Era”? What’s new is Tom’s subtle racist headline.

    I just read the article after a partner sent me the link to this site. It don’t surprise me one bit because O.W.H. stands for Our White Heritage news. It was like back in the day when white plantation owners would seek out help from each other on how best to control their slaves. Tom Shatel went to Jack Stark,. Dana Altman consults Stark and has talked to Tom Osborne on how to control the slaves. Only a newspaper in Nebraska would be bold enough to print how it is done in the modern era.

    And my brotha’s at Creighton play on.

    I think everyone including the writer, Mr. Cummings, is missing the larger issue here. Jack Stark should be reprimanded. It is very unethical at the very minimum for him to agree to an article like that where he openly discusses team issues in particular P’ Allen Stinnett. Stark basically psychoanalyzed Stinnet in a public forum. Are licensed psychologist permitted to talk about their clients in the open like that? I for one would not let a Creighton coach step in my door to recruit my son if this is how they conduct their internal business by airing it out in the public. I do not see how any player would feel comfortable in the future with discussing their personal problems with him. Jack Stark may have a very impressive record and is very well connected but he was way out of bounds here IMO.

      Unethical Behavior,

      Excelent points. If Iwere Stinnett I’d be pretty upset right now that a trained and apparenly licensed psychologist that I confided in would be talking about me in any manner to a reporter. Don’t know what his family life is like but I couldn’t imagine his parent(s) being to happy about the aticle if they saw it. And yes, if i were a player on the team and read the article I’d be very leary to say anything to Stark. Thanks Unethical Behavior. Good catch and insight.
