    Memphis vs. Houston kicks off week 8. Houston has benched QB Kyle Allen for Kyle Postma. Postma is a good QB and athlete - he has been with Houston his whole career but was never able to become the starter when they had their magic quotaback. But all of the sudden when another white QB is in the mix he gets his chance. Not a knock on Postma as I hope he does well. QB Riley Ferguson and DB Austin Hall on Memphis are both good players with next level ability.

    Watching the BSPN Halftime show - Galloway has an obvious agenda against Darnold. He criticizes him way to much considering he is the best QB in the country - I think he is a little butthurt over his brotha Lamar Jackson fading a little.

    Also the Saquon Barkley heisman hype is a little ridiculous. McSorely is getting no credit at all for PSUs season. Remember it was McSorely who led PSU to the last second victory vs. Iowa not Barkley.

    Arkansas St QB Justice Hansen rushed for 121 yards on 13 carries & TD + 275 yards passing & 2 TD's

    Riley Ferguson finished with 471 yards passing & TD....Kyle Postma 315 yards + 49 rushing

    As a soph. thought DE/OLB Jackson Dillon(Memphis) had some NFL potential...but missed most of last season (knee injury) & out for season since Week 1 (shoulder) would seem to make it doubtful. He might apply for a 6th season for next year...

    Watch bits & pieces of this game...Disappointed Didn't see much of Houston 2nd team D-End Zach Vaughn... or DB Collin Wilder ; is he 3rd team?

    I can't link up Rocky's comments on Princeton which is in the Positional Draft thread. To follow up on some of his Ivy League talk their RB Volker might be someone to keep tabs on . He is a junior. So is their 6'4" WR Jesper Horsted who blew up last night. A 13/246 and 2 TD stat line. Not too shabby. With his size and ability to get deep let's put him on the radar. NFL? So Volker and Horsted, go Princeton.
    Already on our radar is Zane Dudek. I will try and catch some of the Yale game because it is being televised where I live. Disappointed last night Mannix didn't get a lot of targets but at least McVey had a nice game.
    I am not in the mood for another drop off this week so here is hoping for a big day from our favorites.

    Anyone know how Justin Watson - the Penn WR is doing? Alot of good white players in the Ivy league.

    It's amazing how many bad teams there are in the SEC - Alabama has an easy schedule.

    Penn has a new young QB this season...so Watson's numbers haven't been as gaudy like last 2 years (over 1,000+ yds) w Alex Torgenson. I have posted Watson only one or two times this season. At 6'-3" 210 still think he gets in an NFL Camp even if he is not Drafted. So far thru 5 games....34 receptions for 467 yards & 7 TD's. (134 & 101 & 99 yard games)

    Didn't realize Texas Freshman QB Sam Ehlinger weighed 230lbs on 6'-2" frame....has some Tebow-like punishing runs (over 100+ last week vs. Oklahoma)

    Demographically Louisville(offense)/Florida State(defense) nearly resembles Grambling vs. Alcorn. With the Noles' struggling...their stadium looks as empty as many in the NFL.

    Lots of positive accolades for Northwestern Freshman LB Paddy Fisher so far. They were just talking about him taking over as the best MLB in the Big Ten once Jewell moves onto the NFL. Fitzgerald said he has the potential to be the best LB that Northwestern has had. If I recall Northwestern had an overrated black LB all of the draft weenies were talking about - he has not done anything yet after being a 5th round pick.

    Thanks for the info on Watson TwentyTwo.

    I like Ehlinger - it's just a shame his playing time comes at the expense of Shane Beuchele and he is playing under one of the most anti-white coaches in the NCAA. I would normally say that Ehlinger should be the Texas starting QB for the next four years but I don't trust Herman at all to allow a white QB to have any type of long term security as the starter.

    Yeah Herman seems like he's always looking for that unlimited upside QB...But Ehlinger's Dual-threat Talent too hard to deny. Can the Longhorns thrive in a Two QB system?? Shane Buechele could eventually transfer & have success. Seems gone are the days a Matt Flynn(LSU) waits to Start til he's a 5th year Senior.

    Ehlinger's Rushing State "Skewed" Today 11 carries for 10 yards..Should be 44 yards rushing so far. He got slung down for a Sack he landed on defender & Fumbled backwards; OK-St. player picks up ball & drops it....Ehlinger recovered it...then it was 3rd & 44 o_O...

    Northwestern (5 or 6?) & Iowa ( 7?) bucking the trend in the pale defender department. Eye popping when compared to most of the rest of CFB.

    NFL on the Radar for QB Clayton Thorson.

    Herman has already recruited a quotaback in his next recruiting class, so not even Ehlinger's job is safe from him.

    Andy Davidson has one carry for Army. I hope they lose. He has been purely screwed over due to being white.

    Iowa vs Northwestern is fun to watch, lots of White players on both sides of the ball...too bad one of them has to lose.

    Looks like Jake Funk is Marylands top kick returner with 3 returns for 61 yards. He's not being used on offense at all..

    Just in Wisconsin FB Austin Ramesh with a rushing TD! One of the few FB's actually used more than just a battering ram.
