    In the Ok St game last week the refs missed a few illegal contact/PI calls on Sills. Shadowlight mentioned that in his write up. The Grier-Sills combination has been a fun one the past two seasons. I hope they are both early draft picks and we see them in the NFL.

    WVU should be shredding Oklahoma's garbage defense. Pisses me off to see a team not adjust nor have a fullback. Running out of the I they would destroy that Oklahoma defense. Instead WVU is playing the spread game and allowing the Oklahoma defense to drop into coverage.

    Nose Tackle Greg Gaines nearly a Sack on Minshew; showing his explosiveness! Interestingly the Announcer just gave the Kyle Williams comparison; i said that last year! Williams can't play in the NFL forever; Gaines would be just what the Doctor ordered!

    Yeah Leonardfan; Snow game looks fun; stats skewed a bit.

    Colorado producing some talented Tailbacks... Max Borghi (Arvada )only 40 miles away from Christian McCaffrey (Castle Rock).

    Piss poor "tackling" let to a long td run by Oklahoma. Big 12 defenses are incredibly bad yet the NFL still drafts affletic defenders from the conference. We see the results of that every week in the NFL.

    Grier with another great throw for his 5th TD against an aforementioned garbage Big 12 defense.

    Love me some Will Grier.......but I think the two fumbles returned for TDs on national TV killed his Heisman chances. The second one shouldn’t have happened but for the WV moron WR blocking someone into the stands negating a first and goal from the 2 yard line........second straight tough loss for WV.

    Looks like one of the quoatabacks is going to be gifted the heisman. Minshew did not deliver a signature win against Washington in what appeared to be blizzard like conditions.

    The Clay Travis twitter thread on the targeting call basically saying that the conference is protecting its biggest draws as the SEC protects Bama.

    "Mud" is poor ineffective rhetoric, sounds like a boatload of butthurt.

    You are correct. Switched it back to quotaback.

    As far a Oklahoma - they do not belong in the college football playoff due to their terrible defense.

    So, the OU "defense" gave up 704 total yards and 8 TDs to West Virginia. Will the new DC get fired like Mike Stoops did after the Texas game? Will they change their recruiting strategy to consider the rest of the male population, approximately 93%, that aren't black? Will any coach want that role if accountability isn't restored to the program in how they recruit players and in holding the players accountable as well?

    Hard to believe this is the week of the college football season. There are a few games next week and conference championship games but for most teams this is it until the bowl season.

    Michigan - Ohio St isn't much of a caste match up. I believe Michigan is 3/5 sumo and pretty much only let Winowich play on defense (he is their best player). The TEs and QB Shea Patterson are what I enjoy watching. Patterson can really make a name for himself and he should play well in the game. Looking forward to it. With Urban's sudden resurgence of "health issues" this may be his swan song in Columbus. Haurbaugh has disappointed in terms of recruiting but I prefer him to Urban any day of the week.

    I would love to see Northwestern and the "blue collar, lunch pail" Wildcats destroy Hatie Smiff's Illini giving him two weeks in a row with blow outs to majority white teams. Perhaps a big win by Nortwestern will get Hatie canned.

    The Spartans should be able to finish out the year with a win vs a terrible Rutgers team. Somewhat of a lost season for the Spartans - Lewerke either regressed or was injured for most of the year. Next year should be interesting to watch in terms of the Lewerke - Lombardi QB competition. I believe they return all of their white defensive starters for what is a very good defense.

    Wisconsin - Minnesota - Kind of a toss up. Wisconsin like Michigan St was a disappointment this year. They should move on from Hornibrook as the starter or at least have an open competition next year. Wisconsin is going to lose Connelly and Van Ginkel to the NFL so hopefully they have white depth to replace them both. Minnesota is trending upward considering the mess that Fleck inherited but still have ways to go in order to be "white-friendly".

    Notre Dame should cement it's playoff status with a win at USC. The Trojans were decent to follow with Darnold, Smith and Gustin but next year JT Daniels will be the only point of interest.

    Brett Rypien seems to be getting some positive draft buzz - would like to see him win against Utah St tonight and get some momentum going into the draft.

    Hopefully Laird has a big game vs Colorado to help in his quest to hit 1000 yards rushing.

    Currently at the TTU vs Baylor game, hopefully some of our guys can show out today! I hate Baylor but I’ll be keeping a close eye on Clay Johnston and James Lynch, they both should be in the NFL in a couple years.

    RB's continuing to have strong performances this Week... Cade Carney(Wake Forest) in 2nd Qtr. has 86 yards rushing & TD on 10 carries; long of 34 vs. Duke

    Yeah Leonardfan...the College Football season goes by so fast!

    FCS Playoffs Start today

    Glines with the long touchdown catch for Boston College. it came right after a “dynamic” (but “somehow” not undersized at 5-foot-8, 170-lbs.) affletic wideout simply quits running on his route causing Dungey to be picked off. the mistake was so bad even the announcers talked at length in befuddlement regarding how boneheadedly stupid the receiver was.

    Glines, despite his versatility and playmaking ability has been given the shaft since the “real” tailback returned to health. i don’t think he’s had a single carry in the past five games despite how well he played when given the chance ... meanwhile, the “phenom” who returned to the top of the depth chart has been nothing more than average.

    for Syracuse, Dungey is running wild. he already has 3 rushing scores as well as a touchdown pass. BC hasn’t had an answer for him up to this point (early in the second half).

    For years now BC has been a good but not great team to support because of their affixiation with quotabacks.

    Cade Carney showing what he’s capable of when he gets steady touches and finds a rhythm: 21 carries for 146 yards and 1 touchdown midway through the third quarter.

    affletic (non)receiver for BC blatantly alligator arms a fourth-down pass that would’ve given them a sure first down. bet he’s fast, though. heh. commentators rightfully tear him to shreds, at least.

    JC. I hate I've missed that. Been in the gym working off Thanksgiving meals! Happy for Carney. I think he has another year left?

    Harbaugh choking against Ohio State again, probably ensuring either OU or OSU gets into the playoffs. :mad:

    Carney in one long, beautiful run shows what makes him both good and bad: patience, physicality, and lack of top end speed. as it stands, he’s over 200 yards on the day on 25 carries with the fourth quarter still to come.

    Carolina Speed, my workouts have taken a rest until Monday. then, it’s back on the grind. results take constant input. stay strong!

    Gentry has killed Michigan. Dropped td catch and two crucial drops.

    Ohio state still has no business in the playoff - they lost to Purdue. They still have to face northwestern too.

    Makes you wonder how Carney actually got a chance to even get to Wake Forest when other white RB's don't get a look. I'm not complaining, but I watched Carney in High School and he got walked down a lot. Where as other white RB's would hit the corner and would never get caught from behind and don't receive D-1 offers. Kind of scratching my head?
    Thoughts?

    When your my age, you have to get in the gym as much as possible to keep burning calories, especially the way I eat now days.

    Certainly no fan of Florida, but glad to see them keeping the Criminoles out of any post-season bowl game. At 5-6, an FSU win would've garnered them a spot. They are getting whooped 41-14 late in the 4th Qtr and will sit home during the post-season.
