Default Barry Switzer - I'd Never Recruit A White QB

Barry Switzer really needs to quit drinking during interviews

“I’ve always said I’d never recruit a white quarterback. The only way I’d ever recruit a white quarterback to play for me was if his mom and daddy would have to both be black, and that’s the only way I would do it. My offense is a quarterback-fullback offense,I’d have to have a Jamelle Holieway, J.C. Watts [or] Thomas Lott. Those guys are gonna be my quarterbacks, they’re great runners, they’re great ball carriers and … able to pass, complete some, and those guys could. Those guys could throw and run.”

http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/02/barr...e-quarterback/

Out of high school, [Troy] Aikman was recruited by Barry Switzer to Oklahoma with the promise that the Sooners would junk their famous wishbone offense to take advantage of Aikman's passing talents. As a sophomore in 1985, Aikman was named the starting quarterback for Switzer's new aerial assault and promptly led OU to a 3-0 start. But in the fourth game, Aikman broke his ankle when he was sacked by Miami's Jerome Brown. With Aikman out for the season, Switzer went back to the wishbone with Jamelle Holieway and the Sooners went on to win the national championship that season.

His future with Oklahoma shattered, Aikman transferred to UCLA.

Who knew Troy Aikman had black parents

Somebody who is now irrelevant is crying out for attention.

Maybe he's hanging around with Richie Incognito these days.
