    PAC 12 is in play now. I assigned Stanford to @TwentyTwo and picked up a few teams for myself. Feel free to volunteer for the remainder.

    I am popping up Indiana in a jiff. Will also tackle UCLA and Colorado. And that will be it for me. I have no interest in doing any MAC teams. When all said and done I will have completed 20 teams. Pretty good especially when I wasn't planning on doing any this year.

    Alright the sun belt is (finally) wrapped up. Luckily we weren’t missing too much by the looks of it.

    I’ll try and grab a few MW and MACtion before their “seasons” start now that works died down

    Thanks. As always I appreciate it! I'm just going to be grabbing random teams over the next few weeks to get them done so if there are any you want let me know. I did assign you Colorado State just because you have done the Colorado teams in the past.

    At this point Ourlads is enough of a resource for me to get these things done in my opinion so for anyone who wants to do some write ups feel free to help out the few of us who do these every year. There are 15 unclaimed teams left so anyone who wants to volunteer let me know. Even doing one of these teams helps out.

    Reading through all of the team write ups, it almost seems like the percentage of White starters is better in the NFL than FBS football. It seems like the demographics push to turn the NFL into the NBA is the agenda of college football recruiters. If anything, the NFL is holding out by finding FCS, Ivy League and D2 or D3 guys.

    Interesting observation above and that thought entered my mind when I was doing the write ups. I kept saying to myself good grief these teams seem more caste than the average NFL team.

    I make it a point to forecast the grimmest of scenarios as a possible future path. And one of them is we could be seeing an NFL in five to ten years down the road without any white wide receivers of any distinction whatsoever. Just a few back up types and a few low end starters.

    But that doesn't mean it is going to end up like that but I like to keep all options open, even the most disconcerting. I never want to get complacent and wake up one day saying how did that happen? I also think it is high time the Ivy becomes more of a focus for NFL draft gurus.

    No doubt it starts with high school recruiting. In retrospect I should have been more involved in attacking the recruiting sites/recruiters than I have been in attacking the NFL draft "experts". Both play a huge role in the caste system but the white athlete filter is turned on during the high school recruiting process. Unfortunately, that machine is way too big with way too many moving parts for a few people to tackle. High School coaches, recruiters, boosters, college coaches, the scouting websites, ESPN have all sunk their teeth into high school football/college recruiting. We have had great forum members here over the years that track white high school athletes - most are often overlooked and never get a major college offer. At this point I feel the caste system needs to be taken on from the bottom up more so than it needs to be attacked from the top down.

    White players and their parents need to utilize social media to get their kids exposure via highlights but also start calling out the discrimination in the recruiting process. High school coaches also need to be much more proactive in asking recruiters/college coaches why talented white athletes are being ignored. I've only reached this realization over the past couple of years and I lament on the 12-13 years that I personally did not focus much energy at all on the recruiting process. This site is not equipped to take on the behemoth of the caste system, we can only serve as whistleblowers to make people realize what is actually going on.

    Thank you both for the thoughtful replies.

    I was thinking the other day, after reading something on the university systems, how every year White males are more and more phased out. They are purposefully passed over for “POC” and women. This will make white collar / corporate work for them unattainable. Well where have we seen this before? Seems like college football and basketball were a dry run that worked so well.

    At this point, I think the university system is as Marxist and anti-White as any in this country. We would all do well to undermine it and guide young White people into learning trades and starting small businesses instead of going into tens or hundreds of thousands of debt. If White people “opt out”, many universities will financially go under.

    Haha yea 6 game season is weak. The MAC becoming more and more like the other group of 5 teams is just depressing though. Football just becoming a welfare/money making pipeline for colleges - very little emphasis on "student" athletes. Just get black players into the programs.

    Thanks for the help!

    Thanks Bucky for filling us in on the MAC. What jumps out to me is the lack of white wide receivers. The MAC was always good for them in the past. The downward spiral continues.

    Six games? Why don't they just head to the beauty parlor and have their hair and nails done. What is the point of such a puny schedule?

    I guess it's better to have some tape than none for the UDFA types. But agreed 6 game season is lame though. They should have started 3 Saturdays ago

    Too bad our CF crew couldn't get ahold of one of these teams for 5 years ha.
