    Didn't realize Ohio played on Tuesday night. Checking the box score, I am shocked to see they got blown out by Buffalo. The Bulls are good but I expected a closer game. Blankenship was back to average again. Only 68 yards on 20 carries. Oh well. Also, Cochran led the team in receiving but his total was low. On a positive note, Buffalo's Alex Neutz hauled in 79 yards and 2 scores. He now has 9 touchdowns in 9 games!

    Big chance for Stanford tonight against #3 Oregon. Hope they can pull off the big victory. Games at 9EST on ESPN.

    Stanford's defense is owning the Oregon offense.

    Gaffney is a beast, it would be nice to see him run some plays to better utilize his athleticism but they have been calling nothing but power plays designed to get a few yards to eat up clock for the majority of the game, and he has some power, keeps his legs moving.

    they may be the darker team but I really hope Oregon comes back and wins this game. A loss for them surely means the insufferable quotaback Winston will win the Heisman

    Is Marcus Ardel Taulauniu Mariota is White? I think they were going to pick a non White anyway.

    Screw Mariota and Winston. Go Stanford!

    The only thing that matters is that he's not a quotaback. An Oregon loss not only gives Winston the heisman but it puts FSU in the title game also.

    FSU qb will be exposed in a national championship. Hopefully next year the new system is at least a little better. The last few have been a snooze fest. Most people tuned out of last years national title, Notre Dame was outmatched in size in the trenches (same with NIU in their bowl game) and the LSU vs Alabama as well. They have been careful with the matchups in the BCS bowls ever since Utah State defeated Alabama. Texas vs Alabama was fishy with McCoy having the mysterious arm injury, and they still were close to winning until a few freshman mistakes at the end.

    so we are at the point where we root for guys that are simply not quotabacks. Imo any guy with non White heritage is a quotaback. They want anything NOT White. Mark Sanchez was hyped up but now they don't push his hispanic heritage. I think the guy who transferred to Southeastern could run Oregon's offense better

    Manziel has LSU and Missouri ahead of him. FSU has had a soft schedule. More and more analysts are coming Manziel's way for Heisman #2 should he win out and put up his usual huge stats and Heisman moments. FSU has nothing but tomato cans - all season in fact. Anything close to sub par by Jamison should put him out of the competition. I think Manziel wins his second despite the best efforts of the media.

    I think Alabama will beat FSU handily in a BCS championship game.

    Its not going to happen but it would be interesting to see a Stanford - Alabama matchup, both have more of an old school smash mouth approach to football, although Stanford is Whiter. Of course I would give them a better chance if they still had Andrew Luck and Gerhart but I think they could pull it off now.

    Gaffney with 45 carries, pure smash mouth football. He doesn't look like he has the frame to be a powerback but he played like one, he is capable of more though.

    From what I could tell, Stanford's entire defensive front seven was white. They totally dominated the "great" Ducks offense. Oregon blocked a kick and ran back for a TD, and then scored after recovering an inside kick with a short field. Otherwise, it wasn't even close. Also, Stanford had to settle for a bunch of field goals. Mariota was exposed, beat up, and eliminated from the heisman race.

    Skov is not white. I'm not sure how the DWFs see him, but he's mixed. Still, Stanford starts a lot more palefaces on defense than most programs, and they are very good.

    Gaffney is only half white. His mother is either a very dark Mexican or a black women. So he's not much different from Skov, either way I'm happy Stanford won.

    One of the writers at NFL.com praised Tyler Gaffney's 150 yard performance against a top 3 team by saying he "lacked ideal suddenness"........LMAO....you can't make this stuff up....

    Anyone else watching this UConn game?
    Delorenzo looked great early. Then he was benched for "bad at everything" Lyle McCombs. I had the sound down. Did they say Delorenzo was injured or something?

    i'm not watching that game, Riddlewire, but in the Air Force-New Mexico game a couple of White runners have been playing well.

    AFA's Anthony LaCoste has already run for 54 yards on 9 carries in the first half, and New Mexico's sophomore quarterback Cole Gautsche has run for 68 yards and 1 touchdown on 10 carries. he's also already thrown for another touchdown, and there's about 3 minutes left with the Lobos in possession.

    You can just take a look at Gaffney and see that he is not black. And it's not that hard to track down a pic of Gaffney's mother, and she is not black.

    Well I looked at the photo of him his brother and him mom and dad, and she is a dark Mexican woman. So therefore he is half white in my opinion, that's all i'm saying.

    Anthony LaCoste ran for 177 yards on just 21 carries last night in the Air Force loss. he had three runs of over 20 yards (with a long of 46) in the game, and he returned a kickoff 45 yards, as well. one wonders why this explosive senior had a mere 15 CAREER carries before this year, his final collegiate season, because he's obviously a big-play threat every time he touches the ball.

    New Mexico's gifted running quarterback, sophomore Cole Gautsche, finished the game with 20 carries for 140 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win.

    We've been through this argument before with Gaffney. Sure, him mom is mestizo, but unlike someone like Mark Sanchez, Gaffney is identified by DWFs as white as you and me. First, he doesn't carry the Hispanic surname, and he doesn't speak Spanglish. That, and the fact that the media has never mentioned his brown mama makes him a white honkey Zimmerman cracka to all that give a damn and even to those who don't. So enough of this already, Go Tyler Gaffney, the White Man!

    We all know that Skov is mulatto, and the media has even done a piece or two on his mixed heritage, so his support here should be grudging. HOWEVER, similar to Jimmy Graham on the Saints, most DWFs just see a white guy, even moreso with Skov who has the Nordic last name. It's still better than having another Barkevious or whatever on D.

    I think Gaffney has the same, if not more, value against the Caste System as Jeremy Lin. Despite the efforts to prop up Latino players in baseball, the system is really about promoting the propaganda that blacks are superior. Anything that cuts against that is a good thing. Skov also has some value in that regard, as you said, much like Jimmy Graham.

    On College Game Day we were just subjected to yet another maudlin story of a beastly black football player being 'adopted' by a White family.......complete with video of him hugging on their teenage daughters........and the White father breaking into tears as he says the black player has brought more to his family than they could ever give back to him........he's the LSU fullback......geezzzzzzz

    Well, so much for O'Brien being fair to Zwinak. Belton fumbles the first play of the game, and Minnesota gets a field goal from the drive. So since Zwinak got benched for fumbling, surely Belton would right? Wrong. Belton trotted out on the first play for the Penn State offense right after he fumbled. To make matters worse, Zwinak lined up as a FB on the third down play of that drive.
