    I wish Fitzgerald would just let Johnson play. He did the same thing last year with Thorson and Green.

    The dark vaunted SEC is looking horrendous in Week 1

    New Miss lost to Memphis 15-10
    All black Tennessee losing to GA State 38-23
    Mississippi State snuck by ULL 38-28
    Kentucky snuck by Toledo 38-24
    Arkansas barely beating Portland State 17-6
    Florida barely beat Miami 24-20

    Only TAMU and Bama with decent games

    Yep, totally agree. If they end up loosing this it will come back to haunt him. You can tell Johnson is good, he just came out shellshocked. Needed to let him work through it.

    Amazing play by Hebert - great TD throw to Spencer Webb who absolutely embarrasses the midget SEC DB

    Miami Ohio’s true freshman quarterback, Gabbert, is a player. yes, he is the younger brother to the Gabbert in the NFL.

    Weatherford, the safety for the RedHawks, is an absolute MONSTER.

    Iowa currently has all they can handle with these guys.

    Oliver Martin with a great TD grab! Put a juke on the CB - he never got a hand on him.

    A suggestion -- if you could identify the team these guys you're singling out for great play are with it would help posters who don't know all the key players for the 120 teams or whatever the exact number is (like myself for example) as well as lurkers. Some posts do and some don't.

    Oliver Martin is a WR for Iowa - he was a 4 star recruit that initially committed to Michigan only to ride the bench under Haurbaugh. He transferred over the summer and was granted eligibility a couple of days ago to play immediately.

    Don if you catch Iowa tonight or at some point this year - their QB Stanley almost looks like Roethlisberger - same body type and wearing black and gold and some of the same abilities.

    Weatherford is all over the place making plays (a very sure tackler too) - looking forward to seeing him play for the next few years.

    Yeah not much of a game but I love watching WSU. Max Borghi is my favorite player in the country. Only problem is that he only
    has 6 carries for 33 yards. He is on a pass happy team so it will be very hard for him to consitantly put up huge numbers. Hope he can still find
    a way to hit 1000 yards in a season a few times. Give him the ball a little more. He is McCaffreyesque!!

    This is by far the worst week of NCAA football Ive ever seen, especially on offense. Even these Wyoming, Northern Iowa, South Dakota State types are completely filled 2 deep with Halfrican Americans. There is nothing to be excited about, (Max Borghi) looks like the real deal.

    Not a WR or even TE with anything to write home about. Someone is going to have to come out of no where this year. These team write-ups are overly optimistic. In reality these white skill players are not seeing the field. Even worse alot of the lucky ones out there are not that good. The good ones are riding the pine or got screwed out of a scholarship all together.

    I did my best to keep my write ups as pessimistic as possible. It's been a week so I am not going to jump to conclusions. I do agree it is ridiculous seeing "rural" schools with so many non-whites on them. All of these recruiters ignore local talent and go to Texas, California or the south to get blacks and import them.

    Yeah definitely less whites than usual from a numbers perspective but from my standpoint all the ones we have out there did pretty decent so I’m happy about that. That’s what I was basing it off of, our guys that did play did pretty well for the most part. Plus seeing these super dark teams go down or play bad.

    A pretty good week from my perspective.......HBCU Tennessee being taken down at home........surely, at some point the big contributors will wake up and express their opinions. Boise coming to Tallahassee and taking out the ultimate caste team FSU! Bo Nix and Auburn with White WRs beating Oregon.......it was a good Saturday

    Its all black teams like Tennessee getting beat by nearly all black teams though. Its good to see a couple of the above performances, I forgot about The WF running back earlier. Also it looks like Funk finally got some touches (even if in a blowout). Once Iowa and WSU lose Im going strictly to the NFL, and will then just root against the blacker of the SEC VS ACC in the national championship game.

    There might be a couple of teams in a year or two to get excited about but this is a massive down year. Not trying to be a prick its just the Caste System has really taken hold. Zenner and Nall getting screwed this badly is the death blow. Guys like that aren't even in the pipeline anymore to get screwed.

    I watched the Mizzou- WY game IMO it came down to the game being played at 7220 feet above sea level. Mizzou the day before left from about 750 ft flew out and within 24 hours they were playing against an average team on their turf. Still the best D player on Mizzou the only white guy was Garret and his missing tackles and plays was noticeable, but when he gets back to playing on his home turf he will elevate his stock for the draft. I have a hypothesis that playing West is harder than going East to play, kind of like the old saw in the cattle biz never move a cow to a harder environment and expect anything good. I think even flying West doomed NW versus the average Stanford team because they missed more tackles yesterday than all of last year in their home turf of the midwest.

    Any team that deserves a whomping is New Miss, what a stupid set of compromises were made there, conservatives got to lose slower and they end up with an all black team of second tier players, but hey a bleach blonde trophy wife got to adopt a pre-diabetic turnstyle in the NFL tackle and virtue signal for a little bit before she too is scrapped on the "racist" pile.
