    Smiff with his 4th TD on the year. His “ room brightening smiling” teammates were not shown to be celebrating with his humble arm raise.

    No one bitch about Ehlinger being a cuck. Because he is definitely looking his way.

    Freshman phenom WR Jake Smith 17 yard TD catch! 1st Freshman to return punts for Longhorns since Jordan Shipley.

    Eastern Michigan WR Mathew Sexton had a long TD last week and today he blocked a punt and returned it for the game winning TD.

    Sexton was said to be the fastest player on Eastern Michigan’s team, so he is a player to do a bit more digging on.

    I've been watching alot of the Texas vs Okl. St. Game. I love Ehlinger at qb. He has a great arm and his legs are just as good. He is a dual threat qb that they have to respect. I looked at the Longhorns
    Roster and they have so many white receivers. Several are freshman with only Smith playing currently of the young guys. I think they will be a team to watch especially over the next couple of years.

    Why in hell do I stay up and watch WSU play UCLA???
    So Borghi can get 10 carries??
    I miss Gerhart getting 35......

    Borghi ripped a 56 yarder, at least.....2nd quarter on BSPN

    Yeah it's a shame but here is the bright side rockybleier. Washington State is undefeated and ranked 10th in the nation coming into tonight. They are blowing out UCLA at
    the half. They look like the read deal. Gordon is one hell of a qb and Coach Leach has them on the right track. We could see Mad Max Borghi have a chance to play in one of the
    bcs bowl games and who knows, maybe the national championship. It's very early but his legs will be fresh all year. When they need him, Borghi will be ready for prime time!

    Update on the game. Wash. St. up by 10 in the 4th quarter of a shootout. Max Borghi has 14 carries for 118 yards so far! Not a bad nights work and he could still add to that total. :)

    Crazy game, of course both teams have horrible defenses. But nice to see our playmakers showing up big time!

    This is my 1st time seeing Borghi and Im more than impressed. He's also got over 100 rushing yards.

    Huge night for Cota and Philips - they both made enormous plays that helped UCLA come back. I'll be following Borghi more in the future - you can't help but to compare him to McCaffrey.

    Leach is terrible....Up by 30 points in the third quarter, and he can’t help but still sling it all over the place.....If they would have ran the ball three times in a row and punted a couple times they would’ve won...Shorten the game, play the odds...Idiotic.....

    I could'nt agree more! Coach Leach cost the school millions of dollars with bad clock management. Now granted his team had 5 turnovers. That hurt too! So sad to see Borghi have almost 200 total
    yards and they lose at home. Give him the ball more and they win. No doubt about it even with the turnovers. Feel even worse for the WSU QB Gordon who threw 9 touchdowns and still lost!

    It's a shame the amazing performance by Gordon went to waste - 9 TDs in unheard of. I went to bed in the third quarter when I thought the game was out of reach. I actually enjoy Mike Leach's personality however his outright dedication to the air raid and throwing the ball when all he needs to do is run out the clock is pretty stupid to say the least. He has a more than capable RB in Borghi.

    It's also amazing how the media throws Tua Oogabooga all over the place - both Burrow and Gordon had better performances but all we hear about is the next poly hype job QB. At least both Burrow and Gordon are helping their NFL draft stock - wouldn't be surprised to see Gordon shooting up draft boards - big, huge arm, accurate, great release, fearless, athletic.

    Saw the end of the Pitt game - not really a caste busting matchup but I like Kenny Pickett and he played really well in the game - it is nice to see UCF lose as they are a pretty caste team.

    We also had quite a few 100 yd rushing performances this week but I will let TwentyTwo cover that!

    I hadn’t heard the name Josh Fink (Abilene Christian) in a while, I remember playing against him in high school and he was really really good.

    Also while talking about Abilene Christian, what happened to Billy McCrary? He’s only been getting a couple of carries per game after having a great season last year. It’s his last season as he’s a 5th year senior.

    Thomas had a 4-51 stat line as well. See below his nifty punt return.



    Of course the UCLA Kyle Phillips 69 yard punt return was a huge play in that game. Interesting to note that both Chase Cota and Phillips were two of three white wide receivers who were listed in the top 60 or so in HS rankings of 2018. It was nice to see them explode for a change and hopefully this is only the beginning. Hard to say since that QB has been very erratic. The other highly rated white WR from that year is Austin Osborne of Washington but he hasn't played any at all as far as I can tell.

    Iowa State's junior LB Jake Hummel returned an interception for a TD and showed great wheels in the process. Where is their speedster WR Landen Akers though? No factor this year.

    I watched the Michigan game and yes CM's younger brother QB Dylan was skulled in the worst way by a black DB. Terrible. Patterson did not have his A game but something is amiss with the Wolverines. They were overpowered for the second straight game and it shocks me that they don't let Patterson do some free range stuff including running. Just sits in the pocket with little time. second straight week their offensive schemes look poorly drawn out. RB Groshek of Wisconsin as mentioned above looked swell but he got injured and didn't play the second half. Not sure about the injury.

    Also noticed Auburn WR Will Hastings didn't play. Probably due to the skull shot he took in prior game.

    I woke up around 2:00 AM and couldn't believe there was nearly a quarter left to play in the UCLA wild affair. Have to check Borghi's age because if he is old enough he should enter the draft. That Washington State HC is a weird pea brain.

    Thanks TwentyTwo for another great wrap. Yes JR Plumlee is a big time athlete and unlike so many baseball prospects he wasn't stupid enough to ditch football altogether.

    Utah State beat San Diego State away from home no less. Michigan States terrific Joe Bachie had a tremendous game against Northwestern and should be a first round pick. But even he has to take a back seat to David Woodward who finished with 13 tackles for the night. If I was an NFL team I would nab him in a heartbeat.

    I would say so far Northwestern is the biggest disappointment this year so far. They look dead in the water and even promising new QB Hunter Johnson has looked shaky. Their D is still solid of course with LB Fisher ( another easy first round talent) and gang but hopefully they get going on offense.

    North Carolina lost to App State which was great to see. That is two in a row for their old fashioned caste master. Also glad A&M and AZ ST lost and now that Stanford has gone more caste there level of play has dropped.

    Bamas WR Slade Bolden got a few touches in another blowout.

    I didn't get to watch much CFB this past weekend - I do like the fact that USC was able to beat Utah with Matt Finke - a very talented QB who got stuck in a white QB logjam and was pushed to third on the depth chart. Finke in his first start outperformed the overrated quotaback for Utah (Wittingham has been a true champion of the quotaback cause).

    I put Boise St on for a few minutes and their team is totally overhauled - polys everywhere - from one of the true caste buster teams to just another run of the mill copycat.

    Got cut off in the path so I want to finish my piece. Oregon QB Justin Herbert has yet to throw an interception so far I believe and his TE Jacob Breeland, whose stats were cited by TwentyTwo, looks to be an NFL draft prospect displaying impressive speed.

    I also think there is a chance four white LBs get chosen in the first round of the 2020 draft--Bachie Woodward, Fisher and perhaps Evan Weaver out of Cal who was also mentioned above after a big game.
