    UCF knocked off Louisville in the commotion of the Cardinals knocking off the Doyers. Great day all around.

    I heard the Bridgewater post game interview

    and he talks in ghetto slang. I couldn't believe they let someone who doesnt even speak English play the QB position.

    Most of Blackwater's throws were to wide open receivers. He is another Geno Smiff. Played in a pass happy offense in college, was surrounded by a better team but cannot perform in the clutch.

    I hope the Hawkeyes implement a ball control offense feeding the ball to Weisman 20-25 times today and employing CJ Fiedorowicz in the short to intermediate passing game.

    Iowa's defense is underrated and pretty white friendly. James Morris is one of the best linebackers in the country but gets no national recognition. Here's to Iowa upsetting the Ohio St Blackguys

    Louisville lost so quotaback Theo Mudwater won't be knuckle-dragging into the championship. UM won, but overhyped quotaback Stephen Morris threw 4 picks.

    Whats the White tailback for Georgia's name? he has been running well, he was robbed of a td, it definitely looked like he made it in there but Murray came up and hurried up and ran a qb sneak to get it in there, so td anyway.

    edit:
    Brendan Douglas, 6 carries for 51 yards, 8.5 ypc, yet dwfs don't see him as a "real" tailback. Just wait until he breaks a big long run.

    Georgia's true freshman tailback Brendan Douglas is looking beastly in the early going. the negro announcer said, "for a true freshman, Brendan Douglas runs like a grown man."

    on UGA's initial touchdown-scoring drive, Douglas had 5 carries, including 3 carries that were 11-yards-or-longer, capped off by a 16-yarder that appeared to be a touchdown but wasn't credited as such. midway through the second quarter, he hasn't touched the ball again but has 5 carries for 43 yards.

    also in the game, Vanderbilt kicker Carey Spear (a former fleet-footed soccer player who gave up the game due to a heart condition) scored on a trick-play touchdown run. dude has some wheels!

    Watching the Missouri - Florida game since the Tigers are starting cracka redshirt freshman QB Maty Mauk. He sure looks a lot better than the Florida quotaback Tyler Murphy. Murphy sucks.

    Now they just ran Douglass out of shotgun in the redzone, hit in the backfield, gains 1 yard anyway. He needs to be running downhill when he gets the carry instead of on a 45 degree angle, like most backs. He isn't a scat back, even those guys struggle to run out of shotgun which is why they came up with the pistol.

    I like the fact that they have been running him, it gives him more credibility by doing it in the SEC (although it didn't help Hester), he has 3 yards less rushing than Murray does passing, and averaging almost double the ypc than Murray does ypa, I am guessing this is on the Georgia receivers, Murray had a nice rollout run to score another td. Now if he can just breakout out a 20 to 30 yarder to go along with his consistent chunks he would easily have 100 yards on less than 15 carries.

    Mizzou looks to be starting 9 white Tigers. I can cheer fro them now that the quotaback is out.

    The quotaback from Florida does not now how to play the position. He is terrible - really does not belong on th eteam much less as starter. Even the other racist blacks were jawboning at him after he missed an easy pass.

    Max DeLorenzo is finally getting some touches for UConn. he's currently sitting at game-highs of 6 carries for 46 yards and 1 touchdown. and he's added 1 catch for 9 yards. hopefully, the Huskies will continue using him, as the game has 5:00 left in the third quarter.

    Ga Tech's vastly under-utilized Zach Laskey has 6 carries for 42 yards and 1 touchdown in the first half, as the Yellow Jackets are running away from Syracuse.

    The soon-to-by-hyped-for-no-reason Florida quotaback is really dreadful, as stated by myself and Liverlips. You ask yourself why a specimen like this is chosen to run a high-profile SEC D1 offense? It's because it's the "wave of the future!". "Everyones gotta have an athletic QB!" "Because he's black, he has limitless upside!" All the while he's being schooled by a redshirt freshman WHITE QB making his FIRST start.

    South Carolina goes down to Tennessee on a last-second field goal.

    Crap, Douglass fumbled on a catch when they were down 4, it would have been hard to drive down the field to win the game with 2 and a half minutes left with the way the receivers have been playing but he is going to be the scapegoat for losing this one. Hopefully they still give him the ball. After all, I see affletes crucial mistakes all the time, and this guy is a true freshman.

    well there were many other reasons why they struggled and were behind, but this will stick in the minds of dwfs.

    Murray threw for 104 yards and 1 interception, but no help from the receivers which is why he dumped it off to him. I doubt he could have driven it down the field for the win. The high bobbled snap on the punt probably cost them more.

    What really pissed me off is that I didn't see one teammate from Georgia come to tell Brendan Douglas that mistakes happen in life. It was like he was on an island by himself. I'm sure some of the guys were thinking this is what white boys don't run the ball. Even Murray never went over there to my knowledge. Outside of the fumble, Douglas and his strong running helpeed put them in a position with a chance to win. I like Murray but despite the lack or receivers, he stunk up the joint today. He will bounce back as will Douglas but it was a tough loss to swallow.

    Today is the biggest game of the year outside of the Alabama game for the Aggies. Texas A & M is up to 7th in the country and cement their position as a top 5 team with a win over a very tough Auburn team. Let's go Johnny Football.:boxing:

    Douglas had a very good game today, and he was the ONLY Georgia player who can say that. the other freshman back had a fumble, as well, however UGA recovered it. furthermore, the other tailback managed an anemic 2.5 yards-per-carry on his 13 carries (for 32 yards, 13 of which came on a single run).

    the complete lack of a Bulldog passing game can't be overstated.

    Georgia's special teams were anything but special, and they were severely out-performed by their Commodore counterparts.

    additionally, the UGA offensive line was whipped by (the numerous White men of) Vanderbilt the entire game, and only Douglas' decisive, powerful running and excellent vision allowed him to gain the yards he did. i would wager that at least 2/3 of his yardage came after contact.

    it will be unjustified if his late fumble is the labeled as "the reason" Georgia lost. it certainly hurt their cause, but Douglas played very well today despite that blemish. i'm also curious why the fumble came on the only pass thrown his way, as he is a terrific receiver out of the backfield. with their passing ineptitude today, i would've thought they'd have thrown it to him a lot more frequently.

    I actually saw two black players go up to him and pat him on the head as a sign of things will get better, so hopefully that holds some weight
    The passing game wasn't working, he should have had like 30 carries today, and thats not unheard of in sec games. I've seen backs get over 35 in the SEC. He was breaking off around 10 yard runs almost every play (except when used in shotgun which was stupid).
