    Looks like Trent Irwin (Stanford) is saving his best games for his last games. Currently 5-85-1 in the 2nd quarter plus a 22 yard punt return. He’s been a very underrated punt returner because he hasn’t returned one for a touchdown but he always has nice nifty returns especially for a receiver his size (6’2” 205lbs). I actually think he has a good chance of getting drafted even though coverage on him is low. He’s very consistent, smart, and athletic. Nothing really jumps out about him but he’s just good at everything and can play outside or inside. Kinda like a Chris Hogan type receiver.

    One of the Thug U affletes just targeted a white Pitt player on a punt return that was returned for a TD. The refs initially called a penalty and called the TD back. You could tell the Thug U player hit the Pitt player in the head, which caused the penalty to be called. The black BSPN announcer started crying about how it shouldn't have been called a penalty and the Pitt player wasn't hit in the head, though he clearly was. The announcer was very upset that the black player was called for this penalty, no doubt because it was because the penalty was for a vicious, illegal hit on a white player. But alas, the refs then conferred and reversed the penalty.

    Another case of bkack privilege with blacks sticking by their own.

    Noticed Cade Carney had a career day against a very good Duke team, receiving a true "bell-cow" workload of 31 carries for 223 yards and 2 TD's!!! Hopefully this will put Carney on an NFL scouts radar...

    Good to see both Sumlin's Wildcats and Tennessee miss out on the bowl season. Both were 5-6 heading into today and both lost and will stay home.

    Well now......I guess at this point I’ll be rooting for Clemson to win the NC. Love their true freshman QB Trevor Lawrence who will probably be a first rounder.......and ‘Bama slayer Hunter Renfrow is always fun to watch.

    Renfrow with 4 catches for 71 yards........announcers are praising him and showing replays of his winning TD in the NC game against ‘Bama. Then one says ‘I wonder what round the Patriots will draft him’..........

    Matt Hadley was getting most of the carries for BYU....Then got dinged up.....
    There was an Austin Kafentzis sighting......Coming in as a wildcat QB and pitching it to Hadley for the score.......BYU is very thin at RB.....Why the f move Kafentzis to safety?
    The announcers had no idea who Kafentzis was. “A backup safety running a wildcat”?, one announcer said...... I need to research Beau Hoge.....Had to have gotten hurt.
    Very proud of how some of our guys are finishing.....AJO, Carney, Fagan (nearly got 1000)

    Laird didn’t shine today, but has a make up game vs Stanford next week plus a bowl game to hit 1000.....

    It is now midnight for the college football season and it felt like it. Funniest damn thing I saw this weekend was that indecipherable LSU HC getting doused with victory Gatorade but a late reversal call gave A@M one more chance and they completed a miracle and then ended up winning in the 7th overtime. That pretty much sums up this "rivalry weekend."

    Whether it be traditional rivalries like Michigan and Ohio State or in state rivalries the amount of venom and hatred between the teams is off the charts. There were some scuffles but make no mistake these rivalry games are loaded with hate. They even call the Georgia Tech- Georgia game the hate game. One year I think they had to call in the national guard in a Clemson- South Carolina battle.

    Can't say I am pleased with this weekend. The Oklahoma -West Virginia game ruined everything. QB Grier was stellar but he won't win the Heisman. At least WR Sills made some plays but didn't get involved much in the second half and was overshadowed by two other WRs in one of those defense is optional type of games that is sadly becoming the norm. Unless you are Michigan State. The Spartans may not be pretty but they aim to knock your teeth out. My kind of football.

    And Washington State looked bad in the snow. That coach gets a lot of praise but he is too damn flaky for my taste and when was the last time his team won a really big game? How about never. At least they have Borghi who has a lot of talent.

    Big 12--Oklahoma makes me ill. No need to comment further. And what the hell was Kansas State doing last night? Up big they coughed up the ball late and just melted. Bill Snyder is a nice coach but he is getting too old for the rigors of college football. There was a white CB sighting, Johnny Durham (#6), but dammit to hell he got injured and had to leave. Someone had mentioned they had seen CB Riley Moss in the Iowa game. I didn't see Moss who is #33. Their S Gervase who is also white is number 30 and he played. Moss has disappeared from the face of the earth since he had a sub par game, something black CBs have every game. They get to return and play though.

    I am glad Texas Tech canned Kingsbury and his fruit cup mainly caste approach. His teams have been as reliable as a bad watch. I dread the Oklahoma- Texas rematch in the title game. I fear Oklahoma will slip into the playoffs.

    Big 10--What can you say. Michigan gets throttled yet again and it was the first sub par game I have seen DE Winovich play. I don't think Harbaugh should be fired yet though. I guess it is between Ohio State and Oklahoma for the last playoff spot?

    White heavy defenses like Northwestern and Michigan State won despite being disinterested playing bottom feeder caste riddled teams.

    Penn State also beat caste Maryland like a drum. I see QB McSorley as a Taysom Hill type and hope he gets drafted. He is also a better passer than people think so he could end up a number two NFL QB if things break right. The key for him is to get invited to the combine.

    BC lost badly against Syracuse as noted above. Stud DE Zach Allen ( I have him rated as the second best player in the 2019 draft) injured his damn ankle and had to leave the game. I prefer McSorley to QB Eric Dungey another stellar athlete. Dungey would have to switch positions.

    Wisconsin fell apart. Talented defense. No white WRs and a sub par QB and mediocre black WRs will get you nowhere. I like the HC of Iowa but he is a terrible game manager. They could have been undefeated if things broke better for them.

    So NW against Ohio State in the title game. The Ohio State QB is good as far as I can tell. Haskins has obviously emulated Tom Brady. Of course nobody is Brady but to his credit at least Haskins tries to play like Tom. If given a chance I suspect he would throw to white WRs but sadly Ohio State is down the line cast when it comes to WRs. NW has two stud LBs in Paddy Fisher who sealed the game with a pick and Blake Gallagher (#51) who has played like an animal all season long.

    In a bad mood by the time Clemson got started my mood darkened when I didn't see WR Hunter Renfrow in the second half. He had made a sensational catch ( see video up above post) in the first half but hit his head on the turf for the second straight week and looked out of sorts for a spell. Thankfully he came back late in the second half and caught the last seal it up pass. He was incredible with a 5-80 stat line which might have been higher if he had played the whole game. Another favorite S Tanner Muse didn't have one of his better games but at least the coaches stuck with him unlike the Texas A @ M game. And to be fair the other Clemson DBs played even worse. Communication problems.

    SEC- Always a chore to discuss. But Texas A @ M's TE Jace Sternberger is the real deal. Can get downfield in a hurry. Had a 5-75-2 stat line in that huge win over dreaded LSU.

    Want weird? There was a white Alabama DB sighting. I guess they had to dig deep into the bench after injuries but there was S Keaton Anderson out there for a spell or two. Looks like a good player actually. The Alabama QB is projected as the number one player in the draft when he comes out in 2020. They play Georgia in the title game. Doesn't get anymore caste than that folks.

    Red Raider up above makes a great point about Stanford's WR Trent Irwin who has been coming on strong of late (7-103-1). Key player that we need to get invited to the combine and drafted. I hear mixed things but as pointed out he has been a stellar PR too. I grade him as a 5th to 6th round talent. Will the NFL that is the bigger question? In that game UCLA freshman WR Chase Cota had a 3-38 stat line. I hope they give him a real chance next season. He saw spot duty most of the season.

    Auburn like Wisconsin fell down the rabbit hole this season. Both were early top ten teams. The good news is Auburn gets back speedy WR Will Hastings next season. By then he should be near 100% after recovering from a torn ACL.

    FIU lost but their two white WRs CJ Worton (5-62) and Austin Maloney (3-56) from last night are two to keep an eye on next season.

    Utah beat BYU in an ugly affair. The BYU QB Zach Wilson though might have NFL potential. He can really scoot too. LB Chase Hansen is playing like a first round talent. Like all of these in state rivalries these two teams can't stand one another.

    Finally Notre Dame looked ill at ease last night but pulled out the win and should be in the playoffs. WR Chris Finke was tearing it up though. He had a sensational TD that brought back ND and had a 7-86-1 going into the half. Sadly he didn't see the ball in the second half. He broke free on a long one but QB Book missed him. LB Drue Tranquill was great and on the other side LB Cameron Smith has shed weight and was all over the field. Both of these players seem like early round NFL draft picks.

    Sorry for the length of this sucker. The main theme is I can't get the bad taste from the weekend out of my mouth but there were at least a few positive thing to take away.

    CS don't know where Carney speed went to, unless it is due to injury. At his combine at Mallard Creek in 2015, he ran 4.53 and had the third highest SPARQ rating in the country at that time. I feel like he has bulk up maybe to much because he has put on 23 lbs of weight and the way he looks it's all muscle.

    Didn’t realize Timmy Hernandez was a senior. Maybe he can catch on with a team as a UDFA. He’s had a solid season with 58-661-3 and career totals of 107-1259-7. He also put up good numbers his one year of JUCO.

    Fun Fact: Hernandez was a two way starter at Pima Community College as a wide receiver and cornerback and was the first player in league history to be named first team all conference on offense and defense in the same season. Hernandez could’ve been the next guy at corner but he’s white so D1 schools only wanted him at receiver.

    New Mexico’s Ron LaForce and UNLV’s Dalton Baker are #2 and 3 in tackles by DB’s this season. An impressive 122 tackles by LaForce even though he only played in 10 games due to injury. Coincidentally both of them had 98 or more tackles last season, these are the kind of guys the NFL needs. The NFL focuses too much on athleticism numbers and interceptions when they should look for guys that know how to tackle so they don’t give up plays such as Amari Coopers long TD last week and Stefan Diggs final play touchdown in last years playoffs to the Saints. I guarantee if both of these players were in those situations it would’ve been a routine tackle for them because that’s what they excel at.

    I’ve been really impressed with Cal S/KR Ashtyn Davis, he had 2 picks against Colorado this past weekend and returned one for a TD. He has 4 picks in the season and also has a kick return touchdown. He of course is a walk on and he is also on the track team, he wanted to be a receiver but they moved him to DB and it worked out pretty well. He’s a junior so he still has a year left. He has a pretty cool story too and he seems like a good guy.

    Since Laird has surfaced last year, I’ve watched many Cal games....Davis is 3/4 white, I believe...Like his teammate Biaggio Ali Walsh (whose 1/4 is M Ali).....Both seem like nice kids, who in life, I root for......In sports I root for whitey.....There’s a scale I go by....Would you be happy if your daughter dated this guy.....Let’s say Vontez and Suh are at the bottom and CMac and Jordy are at the top.....Many mixed kids that are nice and respectful would be closer to the middle or top.....This could go on a completely different thread and I could go on for paragraphs....,,

    I thought he could be mixed too until I saw a picture on his Instagram with his parents and sister and they are all completely white. He also has pictures from high school where it’s easy to tell he isn’t mixed. I always look at a players instagram when determining because they often have pictures with their parents or something like that. So he’s confirmed 100% one of our guys, I think the long curly hair and tattoos makes it a little harder to tell plus he’s got that California tan, but when you look at his older pictures without tattoos and with short normal hair it’s easy to tell he’s just a regular white kid.
