    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.

    Shadowlight I hope Verdal plays as well. I cannot think of a more hyped up player then Adrian Martinez coming into the season. Also BYU will be starting a quotaback - they are just another standard caste team.

    Joe Burrow should be the Heisman leader right now. The good news about UF is that Kyle Trask has played very well and the overrated injured quotaback has not totally committed to returning to UF in 2020.

    As for the Red River Rivalry - I believe it will be another shootout - it is interesting that Ehlinger is slowly being compared to Tebow (my guess is so they can write off his next level ability). Meanwhile Hurts is playing a QB friendly offense (produced two 1st overall picks and neither have been worth it as of now yet Hurts is being touted and hyped as a 1st round QB. I feel Ehlinger can keep the offense moving at a slower pace, keeping Oklahoma's equally pourous offense on the field and tired.

    Nice rundown Shadowlight; You covered a lot! Wednesday Night Football; gotta love it!

    App.St . QB Zac Thomas nice TD Run ; announcer used "speed & athleticism "
    WR Thomas Hennigan with the nice catch after defender deflected ball ...announcer "he catches everything" ....also returned a Punt where he should have made Fair Catch near 5. Caught my eye as a Freshman; good size ; comparable to Dylan Cantrell

    Each Team starts ONE white player on the entire Defense ...BOTH LEAD the Team in Tackles comin into tonight's game
    App St. LB Jordan Lehr is the Leading Tackler by one (35/34)
    ULL Lafayette LB Jacques Boudreaux is the Teams leading tackler Doubling (33 /16)

    A bit of an enigma ...just 5 catches on season ; 3 TD's...Thomas Raulston 6'-1" 240 (Arizona St transfer...had 10 carries for 54 yards vs. Oregon Freshman Year; then barely played rest of career); still wearing #22 ; but listed as TE / H-Back...(Cajuns already have a Trio of RB's / #1 Rushing team in Nation) ...announcers called him a "Fullback"

    Freshman WR Peter LeBlanc is UL-L's 3rd Leading receiver.

    UF's QB Kyle Trask sprained MCL vs. Auburn ; likely not 100% ...he's a better passer than Felipe Franks for sure

    LSU/ Florida do not like each other. QB Joe Burrow's leadership skills are off the charts! New offensive assistant / guru Joe Brady from the Saints system has helped Burrow go from late Round pick (last year); to likely 1st Round pick this yer!

    Unfortunately for Texas ; their Secondary has been decimated by injuries. Not that their coverage skills were very good...WR Jake Smith is an explosive quick twitch athlete big play threat! Oklahoma has one of the Top TE's / (WR ) Grant Calcaterra...not much production thus far ...Hurts needs to do a better job finding him in the meat of their schedule. Fr. TE Austin Stogner is another to watch!

    Herbert had a good game but I read that Breeland got injured. I am hoping that Burrow continues his impressive play against Florida today.

    Excellent point above by TwentyTwo about the lack of touches for the supremely and athletic TE Grant Calcaterra. Everybody is excelling in the Sooners offense but him. Is it the ole ignore the honky syndrome?

    Well the last couple of nights offered very little hope. In fact it looks like Oregon TE Breeland see above, might have torn his ACL. What a terrible blow and he was showcasing speed and rocketing up the draft boards.

    It feels like someone put bad spell on the entire season. Bad news just keeps coming with no relief in sight.


    Princeton destroyed Lafayette last night but most of their star white offensive players didn't put up the big numbers I expected.

    WR Jacob Birmelin caught one pass for 48 yards and showing off his explosive speed. RB Ryan Quigley was solid as usual with a 12-67 stat line.

    The other games were pretty caste but I did notice that Colorado State has an emerging DE, German Jan-Phillip Bombek who had a sack last night pushing his season total to 5. Someone to watch going forward but overall Colorado State is very caste.

    This is rare but Jerrion Ealy ( his race is built into his name) is a RB for Ole Miss. Like Plumlee he is a baseball star too and will play for their baseball team. He was considered a border line first round draft pick in baseball and was considered perhaps the fastest baseball prospect so he is just a touch faster than Plumlee who as we know is very fast.

    I noticed they had an ESPN two part feature on the last two Ole Miss games with Plumlee leading the troops.

    Sadly I don't have confirmation that S Tanner Muse will play today or that QB Noah Vedral will start for Nebraska. All up in the air as I post this.

    One more vaguely annoying moment happened in the NC State game. WR Thayer Thomas had a 2-35 stat line but he did throw a TD pass to a black RB. I am not a big fan of this type of use for white wide receivers. I would rather they be catching the TD but the media thinks it is cute and most always the guy on the receiving end is black.

    I won't be able to post again after I am done today until Tuesday at the earliest.

    I just want to say this. Trevor Lawrence is becoming the most exciting qb in all of college football. The kid can do it all. Clemson is ranked number 2 in the nation and has a very white led
    defense! This is a fun team to watch. They are crushing Florida St and I'm loving it. Trevor Lawrence is becoming a household name. Even the media has to go with it. He is that good! Throwing
    or running the ball, he is going to beat you either way. Suprised more guys here aren't talking more about this Superman Sophmore who just may win the Heisman Trophy! :)

    Clemson destroying FSU. Willie Taggart is a freaking joke. Went from Western Kentucky to South Florida to Oregon and now FSU, with a career record of 55-59 and has only been to one bowl game (which he lost). Making $5 million per year. Affirmative action at its finest.

    If you ain't mocking FSU's need for real athletes you might be a conservative.

    I believe Brandon Ezell is 1 of 2 white starting CB’s in the FCS, he just had his 3rd INT of the season. WR Bailey Gaither had a 60 yard TD.

    UNLV beats Vandy, RB Chad Magyar records a 22-116-1 stat line.

    NIU WR Cole Tucker also has a nice 8-118 receiving game. DB Adam Buirge recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown in the game too.

    Chad Magyar is indeed a Running Rebel. Excellent performance by the kid.

    Gonna watch Iowa vs Penn State. Should be a very close game.

    In all fairness, Vandy used to play white running backs not that long ago. They were sort of like the Northwestern or Stanford of the south. Cant remember the name of the LSU guy that also played for SD. Still, point taken the SEC is much blacker than even the NFL. You take away the cheerleaders,band, fans, coaches and walk-ons and you could easily mistake it for a HBC conference.

    Its real good to see that Magyar is clearly a white guy as well. Over the past few years I’ve come to expect a white RB to have a chance of being 1/4 or 1/8 black upon taking off the helmet. So much so that it was my first thought upon googling his picture.

    Burrow should now be the unquestioned leader in the Heisman race. The media will talk him down while hyping up Tagilova and Hurts. Lawrence will not have a chance this year mostly because Swinney will pull him out of games rather than let him accumulate stats. I heard Lawrence was injured earlier this season but he looked great yesterday. The throws Burrow makes are much more difficult than the ones in the Alabama and Oklahoma offense as well. I have been noticing the difference in offenses run by black vs. white QBs - call me crazy but the offenses run by black QBs call for alot more easy passes - 5 yards or less to wide open receivers out in the flat. Burrow throws many more intermediate passes into tight coverage. Tagilova benefits from his WRs getting a ton of YAC.

    QB Joe Burrow (LSU ) was a remarkable 21 of 24 passing (88%) 293 yards & 3 TD's + 43 yards rushing vs one of the Top Defenses in Nation? in a 42 -28 Win. Laser-like precision slicing up "DBU". Kyle Trask(Florida) had a solid game passing for 310 yards w sprained knee; hard to imagine he never started a HS game in Manvel TX (behind Houston transfer D'Eriq King) ; the game is not that close if 1st stringer Felipe Franks was still playing.

    Explosive Freshman QB John Rhys Plumlee (Ole Miss) had a 50+ yard TD Called back; bec of a Stupid HOLDING Penalty by WR ; even the announcers said "was unnecessary" ....despite that; still had 143 yards rushing (((should have been nearly 200 yards rushing ))) vs. Mizzou...announcers pointed out "Plumlee is at Full speed after just two steps". He cuts like a Running Back.

    Sorry to hear All-Conference LBers Cale Garrett/torn pec (Mizzou) & Clay Johnston /knee (Baylor) are OUT for the Year; as well as Jacob Breeland /knee 3 - 53 & TD ...one of the Top TE's in the Nation

    Dawson Downing is establishing himself in the RB committee for Mizzou. The problem moving forward is that neither of the other two RB’s are seniors. But luckily Downing is the clear cut #3 guy and should continue getting touches the rest of the season. Nice to see a running back coming out of the SEC, also nice to see Barrett Banister playing in the slot for them despite limited targets.

    Thanks to TwentyTwo for his always fabulous wraps and to everyone else for their input. Make shift arrangement as I try to squeeze in a post. Expect spelling errors etc. Sorry.

    The brutal injuries to three key NFL prospects, see above, is disheartening. To me Cale Garrett is in better shape only because a torn pectoral won't affect his speed once it is healed. Breeland and Johnston however will have their speed impacted and generally NFL teams show zero patience or understanding for white prospects whose speed is compromised by injuries.

    The misery of the season pretty much continues. Hell even the Ivy League had a down week and yes Dudek had a poor outing (only 6 carries though) but Yale got blown out? What the hell happened? WR Ryan Cragun returned to the PENN lineup and had a 3-67 stat line. Just a sophomore trying to follow in the footsteps of Justin Watson.

    Two other sophomores listed above in posts WRs Cole Tucker of UNI and Alex Pierce of Cincinnati should be tracked. YTD stats. Tucker-23-236. Pierce-17-347-2.

    Need to do more research on Cal Poly's speedster JJ Koski who is a senior but he has been lighting up the stat sheet this season.

    And yes that trio at Idaho State is mind blowing. Here are their season stats at about the half way point.

    Michael Dean-28-481-4. Speedster but very small at 5'6".

    Mitch Gueller-19-299-2. Big body at 6'3" and baseball player too.

    Tanner Conner-25-505-6. Only a junior but also big at 6'3" this all around track and field stud is a fast flying ultra athlete. Let's see if the NFL starts sniffing around?

    Speaking of fast big play wide receiver Bailey Gaither is really heating up see above. His stat line of 5-131-1 is my kind of stat line. For the season he has a 20-399-2 stat line.

    In the caste fest Texas-Oklahoma game where TE Calcaterra didn't play for so called undisclosed reasons. WR Jake Smith was clearly interfered with on a long pass but the refs noting Smith was white ignored it.

    Speaking of which I did see the Plumlee 50 yard TD called back. Crap on a stick. I couldn't believe the black caste color man talked up his speed. Are you paying attention ex Michigan State signee WR Jase Bowen? Currently toiling away in the minors hitting below his weight Bowen went to the same baseball camps that Plumlee attendee and posted similar 60 yard dash times. Bad choices people.

    Why is Eastern Michigan speedster Matt Sexton only getting a pass or two a game? They shove this caste stuff in our faces don't they?

    Out of the blue unexpected star from a team least expected? Freshman Louisville QB Evan Conley led his team to victory in a shootout (meaning pretty much all black defenses playing pansy ball) over Wake. He had a 12-18 2 pass line and a 7-79-1 rush stat line. Showed a great deal of burst on a 41 yard TD run.

    There is no Ivy League game on ESPN networks this Friday but a unique Ohio State-Northwestern matchup on FS1.

    Both WRs Riley Lees and Jackson Anthrop are getting more involved this season as I predicted in my previews. However their coaches insist on too much dink and dunk stuff. Only juniors hopefully they get their roles and pass patterns expanded as we move on.

    Craziest thing of the week might have been the way Air Force controlled possession in the second half against Fresno State. Like a 10 minute drive to finish up the game, Made mince meat out of them. Cripes that Kade Remsberg is fast. The NFL though will be a long shot since he is an option TB. But that doesn't prevent me from enjoying watching him at the college level.
