The funny part is, his whole BS spiel about Rupp being a racist couldn't be more wrong.
Rupp specifically recruited blacks to play for his high school teams in Kansas in the early parts of the 20th century.
Adolph Rupp cared about ONE thing: WINNING BASKETBALL GAMES. He would have LOVED to have brought in black players before Tom Payne in 1969 if they could have been reasonably guaranteed safe travels throughout the Deep South. The only reason Rupp did not bring talented black athletes to UK sooner was because he could not guarantee their safety throughout SEC road games in the Deep South. The man should be commended for putting the safety of prospective players above his own desire to win games.
BTW: this is for the edification of other people who enjoy reading this thread. Topcat is a pathetic, lame troll who isn't worth educating on this matter or any other. Hell, the way he conducts himself on this message board, he's probably not capable of comprehending what I just wrote anyway.
Suffice to say, Adolph Rupp was a much better and accomplished man than Topcat could ever hope to be.
