    The official week 1 is here. Hopefully Trevor Lawrence starts his Heisman march tonight.

    Looks like UCLA's quotaback had a bad night. Have to wonder if Chip Kelly will bench him - I believe he has some white QBs coming down the pipeline.

    Utah's Britian Covey is back! Electric punt return of 40 yards!
    BYU Hybrid LB/DB Zayne Anderson also back; nice Tackle for loss on RB Zach Moss!
    Dax Milne is the Kickoff returner for BYU. Announcers said "Matt Bushman is an Elite TE"

    Not cool ...do not have the new ACC Network! Need to figure something out...
    Georgia Tech is pathetic! Former RB Nate Cottrell getting the shaft ..former Triple Option QB still plays & can't throw!

    UCLA WR Chase Cota TD catch (missed it live)...Dad Chad played DB in the NFL...
    Ball slips out of QB Thompson 's hands a 2nd time! Bad body language.. Is he really the best they have at UCLA? Wow Chip!

    Western Kentucky DB Clayton Bush returning punts
    UAB D-Lineman Garrett Marino is an intense tree stump!

    Florida A&M has a white QB.

    FCS SE Louisiana TE Bransen Schwebel sleeper to get an NFL camp invite; like Tanner Hudson (Bucs/So.Arkansas)

    Turned on the Mormon Bowl (BYU vs. Utah) My goodness, you would think that both these schools where located in Samoa

    Clemson's willingness to put white defensive players on the field is the most shocking thing I've seen in college football in years. I'm stunned. I already knew they had them, I just never thought I would see them on the field at the same time. Tanner Muse is the tip of the iceberg. Was that Clemson or was that Iowa? Wow! Notice how fundamentally sound they are. Notice how Clemson's black defenders set up to tackle exactly like the white guys? Remarkable. I never really thought of Clemson as anything other than a team to cheer for against Alabama.

    Right with you. Called Comcast and I "think" an agreement with ESPN is imminent but it makes me wonder if they couldn't get this done for number one Clemson then what?

    When evaluating teams without seeing them except for highlights I can get a pretty good idea about an offense. But what I need to see live is a defense. Looking up D stats is a start but you need to see a defense play to get a real feel. That said I counted at least 5 white Clemson defenders with a bunch of tackles including the great safety tandem of Muse and Turner plus LB Baylon Spector. His brother Brannon Spector is a freshman WR and I just happened to catch him on the sideline during a highlight and he is wearing Hunter Renfrow"s old number #13 which I thought was pretty neat.

    That UCLA QB performance was putrid. Normally I wouldn't care but he had two white WRs out there ( Cota and Phillips) who ended up as collateral damage.

    That BYU head coach is the dullest in college. Get rid of him. Caught the first half and LB Zayne Anderson looked ace. I saw the Covey return but he wasn't starting on offense.

    One mini bright spot is WR Bryce Nunnelly had a 6-100-1 stat line in a UTC win!

    Connor Slomka not starting for Army.
    Some undisclosed injury.
    Didn’t take long for a running back disappointment.

    Carney off to a good start for Wake.....3-30 on first drive +/-
    A nice bulldozing 22 yard run.....

    Groshek hasn’t had a carry yet, but has been in...
    Same set up as last year, Taylor is number one, insert name here number two, then Groshek fills in as a third down guy.....Any chance he gets an opportunity to be a lead back next year? Over/under is 33% chance....I take the under, hope I’m wrong.....

    Heading out, I’ll watch these games later..... Go Carney

    Looks like Lewerke may be regaining his 2017 form.

    He also scored a TD but got it called back due to holding. I’d love to see him be a 1st round pick next year, he kind of reminds me of a young Sean Lee.

    Collin Wilder with a great INT. USF is getting dominated.

    Looks like Gundy went with a quotaback - pathetic!

    Zander Horvath with 61 yards at halftime, Jackson Anthrop with a 38 yard TD. Carney over 100 yards.

    You mean Wisconsin right? Yeah it was great to watch. There are a lot on Wisconsin. Here are some highlights.

    However, you did mention Clemson too. They actually have quite a bit more than your usual big name team. Looking at their 2019 and 2020 recruits, they seem to be adding a good number as well, particularly on defense.

    PS: Speaking of 247sports, you'll notice their own top 247 recruiting list has a lot more than the composite 247.

    As mentioned above Utah State's LB David Woodward had 24 tackles and 18 of them were solo. Plus 3.5 for losses. Looks like a typo. How about top ten pick draft gurus? Get your heads out of the asses of these SEC black players for a change you damn caste slanted ass wipes. Of course I didn't get the game. It was on the ACC network and I have heard conflicting things regarding Comcast and their battle with the network.

    Speaking of defenses Michigan State came very close to getting arrested. They were mugging one of those cutesy pie up and down the field black teams Tulsa to the point where criminal charges were imminent. Bachie led the team in tackles, Willekes recovered two fumbles (one for a TD) and the Panasiuk brothers mauled as well. Tulsa had a combined minus 51 yards rushing for the whole game. Made mince meat out one of those fairy black teams the media loves to bolster because of their "team speed." Kiss my ass. They just got their asses kicked. Bachie and Willekes are roommates and do landscaping together on the side. What a delight to see defenders play with that old school mentality.

    Wisconsin similarly destroyed another black cutesy pie up and down the field USF 49-0.

    DE true freshman Karlaftis looked very impressive and RB Zander looked good at times but I still don't like Purdue all that much. Jackson Anthrop had a nice TD reception as mentioned above but they didn't target him and he didn't start. That was his only catch. I would like to see the numbers on their pride and joy WR Moore who caught 11 passes for just over 100 yards. I could have sworn they threw him the ball 25 times. As I predicted in my write up they are going to feed this sucker the ball no matter the consequences. Once a team gets a woody for a black WR you might as well forget it. He is going to have the ball thrown to him every play.

    The white LBs of Colorado played well but the game in general with Colorado State was a caste fest.

    Oregon State makes me sick. They have a 5'5" 145 pound black receiver. You think a college would ever have a white guy on the roster like that who wasn't a kicker? Hell no. Oregon State is the opposite of what I look for in teams. They play slap and tickle defense. And for crying out loud why do these stinking Oregon teams have so many black and non white players? And they get no bang for their buck. They stink to high heaven.

    Carney, Wake Forest, 25 carries-105 yards. Kind of concerning that he had 10/81 initially, so his last 15 carries only went for 24 yards? NO TD's either.
    BTW, is Utah State a decent team? I know WF is not great, but I thought they would handle Utah State? WF barely won at home 38-35?

    It was glorious to watch Wisconsin win in the fashion they did with who they had against who they played and who coaches them. It was just magnificent. How's notre dame this year.

    I am Gator alum so it's hard for me. But there has been good talent like Tebow, and just recently Anzalone and Taven Bryan. But I would like to see Florida start recruiting elite white players like Clemson and Bama have. I know there is a guy in the 2021 class committed to OSU.

    Anyway. God bless. And thanks for the updates.

    Safety Eli Sullivan #30 is in for Nebraska and he’s making plays, just had a TFL! Jojo Domann also with 2 TFL and almost had an interception.

    Jake Funk starting KR for Maryland, he also had a touchdown run. Hard to tell if he’s playing because they’re up by 70+ points or if he’ll actually have a role in the offense this year. He’s listed at 177 pounds after being listed at 205 last year, that’s concerning to me.

    Dalton Rigdon starting over McLane Mannix for TTU, has 4 catches for 45 yards already on the first drive.

    But then Mannix comes in and scores the TD!

    Montana State’s Troy Andersen might be the most versatile player in all college football. He set their record for rushing touchdowns last season with 21 and had over 1500 rushing yards. Now he’s a starting outside linebacker and has also played at QB, RB and WR today. Not to mention he’s on most of their special teams. Could be a Taysom Hill type if the NFL ever would take a guy from Montana State.​
