    Beuchele was very impressive and dominant by all accounts during their Spring game on Saturday. He's earned the right to start. I think Herman is more cucked than either Urban Meyers, Jimbo Fisher or Bob Stoops...and that's saying something. There was also a story the other day where he was going to take a day off to go to Cardale Jones' graduation. I am embarrassed for him.

    Richard Spencer at his Alt right speech today at Auburn University

    "SEC football is sick. Black athletes not part of white identity. I would ban football"

    I couldn't imagine hearing those words in SEC country 3 or 5 years ago without getting ran out of town by some good ole boys and their second religion . But it was met with raucous applause. Crazy times

    Michigan State DE charged with third-degree sexual assault.

    Robertson was formerly arrested on battery charges stemming from an incident when he improperly touched a female student at his high school in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Robertson entered a diversionary program for those charges last March and finished his probation last month.

    He temporarily delayed signing a letter of intent with Michigan State while sorting through those legal issues. He played seven games as a true freshman for the Spartans last fall and made three tackles.

    There is some nice buzz going around SMU and freshman corner , Collin Rock. He may not play early this year but they are calling the former high school quarterback one of the best athletes SMU has had in 20 years. And they still have wr Trey Quinn in for this fall. Good news in Texas.

    I was at the gym this morning and I saw a segment on BSPN about Michigan's trip to Rome. Of course the feature was on them visiting the refugee camp - Harbaugh and all the Michigan football team just yukking it up with turd world invaders who are their to destroy European culture and leach off the welfare system. It really pissed me off seeing that but did not surprise me that BSPN featured it.

    When I first heard that Michigan and Harbaugh were going to Italy for their Spring Game, the first thing that came to my mind was why? Italians are more race conscious than the Brits and their Football (Soccer) league showcases that. Also, they really have no interest in American Football. Why would they come out to watch a mostly coal-strewn program from a sport they don't really have any interest in? Now it makes sense. UOM and Harbaugh visited the so-called "refugees" which pretty much matches the demographics of his team. I wonder if he extended any scholarship offers?

    Northwestern Senior (black) DE suspended indefinitely for possession of cocaine. He was expected to start in the fall. It opens up an opportunity for one of their White DE, although a couple of black ones may be in the mix as well.

    As a side note, it's really mind-boggling how black players (and blacks, in general) are their own worst enemy. Here we have a Senior given a full-ride to one of the most prestigious academic universities in the country (or planet for that matter) and all he has to do is stay out of trouble and graduate (even with an average GPA) and he can then put "Northwestern" on his resume. This, while also being black, would guarantee him hundreds of job opportunities across the country. Again, this wasn't some Freshman or Sophomore doing this, it was a Senior. The lack of focus for the long term and of impulse control is astonishing.

    Amazingly enough this bum was only suspended. For felony drug possession and not kicked off the team or had his scholarship revoked.

    Compare that with the white Michigan State linebacker who told it like it was to his pos mudshark gf and turd of a black teammate and was kicked off the team for saying the n word.

    Anyone heard about this? Someone named Christian Coleman, a track star at Tennessee ran a 4.12 40 at UT. It's been reported that it is official/electronically timed. I'm not sure I believe that, because they never electronically time 40's at the colleges. Do they? Anyway, it's getting some attention.

    Florida judge admonishes USF Coach, Charlie Strong, for "lack of control of players" after second player in two months arrested for a violent crime; this time, sexually battering and falsely imprisoning a woman.

    In good news Purdue freshman Jack Wegher is third on the depth chart as a rb and not wr and is listed as their first string kick returner and punt returner.

    I read that Sam Brodner got hurt in Wisconsin's spring game....Not sure how bad.....In researching him, they have 2 other guys at running back....Both red shirt freshmen, Garrett Groshek, a converted quarterback and Troy Laufenberg a preferred walk on....(of course it said he's at running back now but may switch positions if he doesn't fit in.....

    I posted on Laufenberg before. He is very small but looked good in his high school videos. He was the Wisconsin Gatorade Player of the year a few years back. Someone else posted after I mentioned Laufenberg said he was like 10th on their depth chart so I wouldin't hold my breath waiting for him to get some playing time. Brodner if healthy should be second on the depth chart.

    It's just good to see 3 of our guys on a roster......One is a lot for most teams......And they are all freshmen.......Would love to see Brodner get 500 yards as a redshirt freshman....Ryan Nall must get 1000+ yards this year, same with Andy Davidson.....Cade Carney would be nice.....Not sure if Ian Eriksen from EMU will get enough carries or get bumped.....He got more carries last year due to another's injury....A.J. Ouellette I thought would be a beast with Ohio, but injuries derailed him last year (after one big carry in the first game)....Hopefully he can regain his starting position......Funk is another that will get carries this year.....Cole Gest may get some....McVeigh for Air Force is fun to watch. Am I forgetting someone????.....Bisharat should have stuck with Stanford........

    You know your stuff RB. :) I hope Georgia State's Kyler Neal gets a shot to carry the load this year but he has had injury problems though he is first on the depth chart after spring ball. He reminds me of Luke Staley but maybe not the pure speed the latter had.
    I really like Gest out of Indiana but he may have a hard time getting on the field with a deep group in front of him. He has a ton of talent just not a lot of size.

    Just read an article about Ouelette. He redshirted last year and will be a redshirt junior this year......Good news.....Luke Staley was fun to watch.....Should never have come out after his junior year.......I'm going to catch up on Neal now.......A lot of guys to root for this year......

    Jack Wegher is third on the Purdue depth chart at ourlads.com......Not that they're always right.....We'll have to wait and see in August when they update......I read he was 5th or 6th.....

    I would love to see Washington's redshirt freshman Sean McGrew also get some time. He is VERY shifty and is probably the fastest guy on the team with the 10.6 100 meter speed. He also like Bisharat and Gest are behind a lot of talented competition. I think Bisharat will transfer to Stanford and be the feature back in a couple of years.
    Though Georgia Tech is known to use up ro 12 running backs in a game it would nice to see 4.3 speed guy Nate Cottrell and pounding Quade Weemerseech get some real playing time this year. I recall Air Force having five scholarship freshmen or sophomore rbs a few years ago on the roster and now only McVeigh is left from what I know.

    I take it back. Air Force still has Parker Wilson and Jake LaCoste on the team. LaCoste still owns the Oregon all time single game rushing record. I believe he was also the Gatorade player of the year 4 years ago like Troy Laufenberg. They had a guy I posted about a few months ago named Dakota Diessner who truly I think is twice as talented as McVeigh is ( and McVeigh is damn good ) and for some reason he transferred and wound up playing his senior year last year he was a strong safety for some obscure school called Northwest Oklahoma. His physical numbers should have made him a D1 corner for any team in the country. It is sad that because so few white rbs are recruited when a few fall through the cracks or get " whitelisted " we have that much fewer to root for. Hopefully McCaffrey will change that but truthfully McCaffrey arguably is the most talented rb in college football history. IMO.

    When was the last time we had 2 guys rush for 1000 yards in a season???

    In the 2000's....not including Zenner and the small schools, who rushed for 1000??

    I remember Luke Lippincot did it.....Zwinak and Weisman would always come up short of a thousand.....Luke Staley.....I'll have to check Brian Leonard, he was a bad ass before Ray Rice took over.....Gerhart, of course, and Gaffney (I always rooted for him)....Hester probably did.....I'm going to have to check now....Speaking of Ga. Tech, there was that kid who stuck with the Rams, then got cut...????? He was a "B" back.......????

    RB Zack Laskey was from Ga.Tech ...did he get injured?

    WR Trey Quinn caught a TD in SMU's Spring Game

    DB Jordan Glasgow had a nice run on a long pick six TD in the Michigan Spring Game..two older bros. were ex Wolverine's

    ex HS WR now TE Charlie Woerner had a TD reception in Georgia's Spring Game.

    Watch out for transfer QB's Jarrett Stidham at Auburn; Will Grier at West Virginia & Kyle Allen at Houston

    Solid post..enjoyed the reads!

    Pretty sure Laskey was injured. I still think he is on the Rams roster along with Wegher.

    Really great work on all the RBs too - I am glad we have been getting contributions from many people tracking them.

    Outside of the Lamar Jackson hype train the QB position once again looks to be filled with a lot of white QBs. The SEC is going to be filled with white sophomore qbs who should be able to light up those coal black defenses - Eason, Patterson, Stidham and Bentley.
