    i'm watching this game, and his second touchdown was a thing of beauty! Toledo was on their own 19-yard line, when he put a double move on the defensive black *TM*, fought off pass interference, and hit the gas pedal as he cruised in for the score.

    compare Thompson's excellence to the following sequence in the game ... two Toledo defensive blacks run into each other leaving a Tulsa upsider standing still wide open in the end zone. said upsider dynamically drops the sure touchdown. :afro: black power. heh.

    Very nice. Here it is. Now every time someone makes a catch like this the announcers call is "very O'dell Beckham-esque".

    Thompson now with 6 REC, 145 YDS, 3 TD

    Watched the first half of the Wyoming-Oregon game. Wyoming was outmatched on offense - I counted 4 drops by receivers for Allen in the first half - his performances against Power 5 teams is nothing to write home about but I will say that the Wyoming roster is pretty depleted. I wonder how much of that will come into play during the draft process.

    Laird is the real deal. Theres a crapload of "crying wolf" on here but Laird is legit. He is as shifty a pale face RB as Ive ever seen. The numbers werent there tonight but they will be in future games.

    From a bleacherreport.com article titled "Winners and Losers of Week 3 in College Football" on Sep. 16 2017

    "Nebraska ran for just 85 yards as a team" against Northern Illinois.

    That is not Nebraska football.

    Upsets on Week 3 of 2017 season:

    Northern Illinois defeating Nebraska 21-17
    Memphis beat UCLA 48-45

    Earlier upsets:

    FCS Howard beat UNLV 43-40 in Week 1 of 2017 season
    FCS Liberty defeated Baylor 48-45 in Week 1 of 2017 season
    FCS James Madison beat East Carolina 34-14 in Week 1 of 2017 season

    Didn't FCS teams defeating FBS teams used to be extremely rare? I wonder what is driving the change?

    Also, the following QBs:
    Logan Woodside (Toledo) 22/33 458 yards 6 TD 1 INT
    Baker Mayfield 17/27 331 yards 4 TD 0 INT
    Trace McSorley (Penn State) 18/23 309 yards 4 TD 0 INT
    Jake Browning (Washington) 19/22 255 4TD 0 INT
    Jarret Stidham (Auburn) 32/37 364 yards 0 TD 1 INT
    Andrew Ford (Mass) 23/37 377 yards 2 TD 0 INT
    Justice Hansen (Ark St) 24/31 336 yards 5 TD 0 INT (in two games (first against Nebraska), he's 70/99 751 yards 8 TD 2 INT)

    Also, I thought Texas QB Sam Ehlinger looked great last night (for a True Freshman, anyway) away against USC at night. He's fast and quick-as-a-cat with a pretty good and accurate arm. With Texas head cuck, Tom Herman, though, you never know what kind of future he'll have...if he'll ever be able to realize his potential or if he'll have to serve a future racial apprenticeship once Herman gets a real quotaback in his system.

    I was glad Cal beat odious Ole Miss. Brock Huard the color guy wouldn't shut up about the "superior" athletes and "speed" of Ole Miss. Also glad LSU got their asses handed to them. I don't think their Coach is all that great.
    Ultra weird USC- Texas game with USC pulling it out. Texas will soon have no white presence, as it is it is barely there but their freshman QB played well see above. USC was without DE Porter Gustin and it showed.
    Also we can all take a deep breath. ESPN folk hero Lamar Jackson had a mediocre game and Clemson took care of business. Too bad S Tanner Muse was kicked out early for targeting. It wasn't a brutal hit but according to the rules I can't argue with it. WR Hunter Renfrow is starting to show NFL potential. He hauled in a 40 yard pass early and is really quick in and out of his breaks. Clemson has some white back ups on D too. A well run team with a very good coach.
    22 always does a great job and the WR's he listed who had a good day are all players to root for big time. Cantrell was incredible I hear, I saw a few clips and it is good that OK ST has at least one white WR in Stoner otherwise that team would be really tough to like.
    Trey Quinn could have had a bigger day but still another solid game and who doesn't like Cody Thompson?
    Auburn speedster Will Hastings had 3 catches for 71 yards. And Bama LB Keith Holcombe led his team in tackles. He is a good one.
    Leo had mentioned Josh Allen earlier who is number 3 on Mel Kiper's big board but he is having a bad year. I can't sugarcoat it. His team is awful and they lost all the good receivers but still I hope he can break out of this funk.
    Iowa grinded out a win but I wish they utilized their two key white WR's more.
    Heretic and I have been discussing BYU and Nebraska and what do you know they both laid down a bad egg. A storm is brewing in Cornhusker land and I thought Riley was a bad hire from the get go.
    I see how our man RB Zane Dudek was mentioned above. He finished off with two TD's and rushed for 131 yards on 9 carries as Yale won their opener. So far so good. And I agree with everybody Ryan Nall looks like a pro.
    Michigan has two white terrors on D. LB Noah Furbush, who came out of nowhere plays downhill and DE JR Chase Winovich is playing as well as anybody in the country.
    All in all a pretty good week with some of the key WR's playing well.

    Yes Heretic it has reached a boiling point . Below is an article that points out why the AD is being implicated in what has to be the worst mess I can ever recall at this once great football power where Scott Frost and Eric Crouch used to rule college football.

    If Shimonek keeps up his pace he should be pushed into the first round just like Mahomes right?

    It's simply terrible. Riley is a terrible head coach who should've never been hired in the first place. Eichorst is a terrible AD as well. The out of state "star" power on the team is awful. But guess who some message board Nebraska DWFs were blaming? That's right, the four walk-on starters, two of whom are actually very good. This poster even called them "slugs." Yeah, you mean like your precious "talented" black DL who can't run worth a crap either? Or your "talented" black LBs who can't make a tackle to save their lives? Or your black corners who can't cover? Or your black RBs who (outside of Bryant, the injured starter) are God awful? Nope. It's just the team's white players. Lee hasn't been good, but he's not exactly gotten much help. Nebraska needs to hire somebody like Scott Frost, who actually understands how important developing in-state talent is.

    The online community also doesn't care much for instate players, who regularly go to FCS or smaller FBS schools and dominate. You think Nebraska might be able to use a guy like Nick DeLuca from North Dakota St. on the team? Or RJ Urzendowski? Or Harrison Phillips, Stanford's starting NT?

    Not big news but Manu Hudson-Rasmuessen has taken over a cornerback spot for Hawaii. He is a jc transfer from Tigard. Oregon. He has a small percentage of poly in him but if we are going to root for players like Washington's Taylor Rapp then this guy is one to root for as the rest of his blood-lines look to be white. Hawaii's original starting corner , Ben Scruton ( Australia and fastest player on the team ) is out for the year.

    The Ohio Bobcats are probably the least caste team in the USA right now. AJ Oulette had a nice 10 carry 100 yard + game against Kansas. Speedster, Brendan Cope finally got a chance to shine and not posted here is slick junior wr Andrew Meyer had 86 yards receiving along with senior wr/kr Jerrid Mahifka sharing kick return duties yesterday. With 2 sophomore backup running backs in the wings and 2 or 3 more athletic wrs like Hunter Thompson this team will be caste free for years to come.
    One great note was senior corner Brad Ellis broke up 4 passes yesterday giving him at least 6 for the year.

    An excerpt from a Nebraska writer today:

    We're enthralled with recruiting star rankings in this market, perhaps overly enthralled. Consider that Northern Illinois sophomore defensive end Sutton Smith was ranked by Rivals.com as a two-star "athlete" out of St. Charles, Missouri. He finished with two sacks and harassed Tanner Lee all day. Same goes for Jack Heflin, ranked as a two-star defensive lineman out of Prophetstown, Illinois. Although he was credited with only one tackle, the redshirt freshman was a pain in the you-know-what for the Huskers' interior offensive linemen.

    Both of the players in that excerpt were White. If Nebraska gave either or both of those two players a scholarship, the Nebraska DWFs would have a fit.

    Sutton Smith was a really good RB in HS....Started at college career as a DB or LB...Top 5 Fastest Player on team..... mysteriously moved to D-End...really undersized for the position. But plenty explosive & all over the field!

    Less & less room at the inn for white athletes at Nebraska. Still remember how Bo Pellini had to defend the athleticism of Rex Burkhead to clueless DWF's...at 5'-11" Rex can easily throw down a Dunk!
