Believe it or not there is a game tonight as Appalachian State takes on Louisiana. Key player to watch is A State junior WR Thomas Hennigan. He leads the team in receiving with a 21-275-1 stat line. We are nearing the halfway point in the season. Lets hope the second half is better than the first. Other pre Saturday games include Syracuse at NC State tomorrow night on ESPN. I have not seen Syracuse but in a post someone brought up true freshman speedy TE Luke Benson. NC State of course features sophomore former walk on Thayer Thomas who has a 17-192-1 stat line. He also has made noise as a punt returner. I have seen very little of them as well but I did notice active red shirt freshman LB Payton Wilson #11. Friday night games include Virginia against Miami and later on Colorado plays Oregon. But to me the game worth watching the most is Princeton. They will be on at 7:00EST on ESPNU. They have a stack of talented white offensive players. Some decent match ups this week but I am afraid that the all black horrid Texas defense will get chewed up by Oklahoma. Clemson is back at home but the big question will be if one half of the Stud brothers, S Tanner Muse, has recovered from his hamstring injury. I sure hope so. His bro Nolan Turner has been stupendous this season and he is only a junior. Air Force will be on CBSSN at 7:00 and I hope and expect them to bounce back after a tough Navy loss. Penn State plays Iowa at the same time. Penn State head coach James Hamilton is making headlines on a non story that has ballooned into some BS racist thing. My details are sketchy but apparently some old codger complained about the hairstyles and behavior of some of the black Penn State players and caste king Hamilton swoops in to "call it out' and instantly becoming a media hero. More garbage to digest. Go Iowa. Florida plays LSU in a big SEC matchup of caste teams sans LSU stud QB Joe Burrow. Barely interested. What will be of more interest to me will be Nebraska at Minnesota if speedy sophomore QB Noah Vedral gets to start due to an injury to media hero Martinez. Vedral was the key for their stirring win against Northwestern last week and I would love to see another white dual threat QB make some noise as we head into the second half of the season. Michigan DE sophomore Aiden Hutchinson was the Big ten defensive player of the week. He is a future pro. Not overly flashy but he is as solid as they come. Always around the ball . And he is enormous. They are at Illinois in the afternoon. I wonder if I will get Yale again on a local TV feed again? Last week against Fordham the talent gap between the two teams was huge. Although Fordham had a speedy little Greek WR ( a Mac transfer) who made a ton of noise with some big plays. Wash State and Max Biorgi will be on the lousy Pac 12 network against caste laden Arizona State. If you scan a lot of rosters you see a lot of very talented young white players. Problem is this year few if any have played. There is no indication any of them will emerge this season or perhaps beyond. But they are there so the hope is they somehow start coming to the surface whether now or later. Obviously it is frustrating to witness. Then you have neglected world class speedsters like Iowa State WR Landen Akers ( who popped up briefly last week) or as mentioned before Georgia Tech's Noah Cottrell who has been reduced to being a special teams gunner as the caste ass wipe head coach pets him like a dog and says "good boy." Anyway BYU is also back in action but their head coach has to be the most unimaginable coach out there. Notre Dame plays USC at night but the Chris Finke story has turned me sour against the Fighting Irish although I prefer them to caste USC. Almost forgot. Last but not least a national TV audience will get a look at freshman sensation dual threat Ole Miss QB John Rhys Plumlee as they play at Missouri at 7:00 EST ESPN2. See Ole Miss thread for more details about this wonder kind athlete.
