    Just kicking off the week's game notes so @Leonardfan doesn't have to!

    Saturday at noon is the CF Matchup of the YEAR with #9 Iowa traveling to Wisconsin. The Badgers are up to 4-3 and trending positively. Iowa needs to re-establish itself after a three-score home defeat against Purdue. These are the two whitest teams in the whitest conference. It's unfortunate that they have to cannibalize each other, but it will be a unique and fun change of pace to see two competitive white-majority power conference teams go at it. Iowa still has an outside shot at a playoff bid if they run the table and beat the Big Ten East champs, as long as that's Ohio State or an undefeated Michigan or Michigan State (a win against 1-loss Penn State or Michigan team likely won't cut it).

    Also at noon is the aforementioned Wolverines-Spartans battle in East Lansing. Black head coach Mel Tucker has kept a white QB room and has found more paleface starters than ol' Wigger Jim. Aidan Hutchinson continues to be a terror on defense for Michigan.

    I believe it was mentioned elsewhere, but an injury in Clemson's backfield means freshman RB Will Shipley is in line for an even greater role at home against Florida State's coal-black defense. That game is at 3:30pm.

    Texas Tech fired its coach the week before going to #4 Oklahoma, so that upset seems even less likely. Black racist Booger MacFarland has used his ESPN pulpit to bash #18 Auburn quarterback Bo Nix this week, so Nix will be under scrutiny at home against #10 Ole Miss. Does Penn State even have a puncher's chance in Columbus against the Buckeyes? Not likely, even if Frames Janklin hasn't checked out mentally while negotiating for his next promotion.

    The late game of slight interest is Virginia at BYU. Wahoos coach Bronco Mendenhall returns to his home state with QB Brennan Armstrong leading the nation in passing yards. Armstrong also rushed for 99 yards and two scores last week while beating Georgia Tech. If he looked like Lamar Jackson, he might be getting first-round buzz. As it stands, he's a legit Heisman candidate with likely another year to refine his craft.

    @Phall thanks for getting this started. I was actually influenced by the member @Reinhardt who had a really great weekly write up at the beginning of the season. Was hoping that he would contribute more as he has interesting insight into Florida St. Hopefully he posts more down the home stretch of college football.

    Michigan St - Michigan should be a good game. Either way it should be a positive outcome in terms of one team entering the Top 4 in the playoff conversation. The Spartans looked sloppy against Indiana two weeks ago. Michigan to it's credit has found a formula that is working.

    Iowa - Wisconsin will be the most enjoyable game of the week. Moss is out for another week but honestly Wisconsin is going to run the ball 40+ times so he won't get much action in the passing game. Iowa needs to recalibrate the offense and Petras needs to perform well against the great Wisconsin defense.

    Miami - Pitt - Pickett should have another strong game to boost that draft stock and continue his dark horse Heisman run. Tyler Van Dyke for Miami has improved every week - I hate Miami but it's good to see a White QB emerge for a prominent college program.

    UGA - Florida - Big question here is whether Bennett or Daniels starts the game. The Georgia offense runs through Bowers and McConkey.

    Purdue - Nebraska - Horvath is questionable and may return for this game. Nebraska goes as Martinez goes. Rooting for the Boilermakers here.

    Duke - Wake Forest - If the Dem0n Deacons win this game they should jump into the top 10. Hartman is an other under the radar player having a great season.

    SMU - Houston - If SMU wins this game they should jump 5+ spots in the top 25. They are the biggest threat to the Bearcats.

    Penn St - Ohio St - Ohio St has had a pretty easy schedule so far and lost their only competitive game this year which was played in Columbus. Hopefully Clifford is healthy this week and shows up. COULD be an upset.

    We need Iowa to win. I'm still pissed about their loss a few weeks ago. It was the worst I've seen them play in years. One of those days but they are still
    ranked 9th in the nation and might move up with a win on the road. I like the Badgers but they are not playing for a major bowl game.

    In the other games I want , Pittsburgh, Georgia, Purdue, Wake Forest, Undefeated SMU, and Penn State. Hope BYU can win tommorow night as they
    are having back to back stellar seasons.

    Caught some of the Nevada game last night - Carson Strong is impressive - makes throws some NFL QBs can't make to all levels of the field. Had a great throw on an out route where he played the ball perfectly with zip. He does seem to be a little hindered by his knee brace and not sure the extent of his former knee injury. If he checks out though medically he should be a 1st round QB. UNLV on the other hand is a laughable program, it's very non-White so by Caste principles this should be the dominant team in the MWC but they are an 0-8 pile of trash.

    Watched the game as well and I agree with your breakdown on Strong!

    UNLV stinks! They haven't won a game in 700 days! Marcus Arroyo should get the boot soon enough.

    A lot of these programs, like UNLV, basically run their football teams as affirmative action / welfare schemes for blacks. That is the goal and it is met year after year. Winning games is really inconsequential.

    Fair enough point. Sometimes we overlook that aspect here.

    Great pass by McNamara in the shadow of his end zone - accurate and hit the receiver in stride.

    Nice throw by Mertz. If he finally finds his footing in this game and plays well from here on out an Iowa loss would be acceptable. I want to see both Wisco and Iowa matched up against SEC or Big 12 schools during bowl season.

    Mertz to Ferguson TD! Yup that's how a Wisconsin offense is supposed to look! Good balance on that drive.

    Van Dyke looks good. It's great to see the caste narrative of the quotaback at one of the most anti-White programs in the country get derailed. Pickett will have to pick up his play today.

    Iowa about to be down by 17. They need to open the offense up, Petras needs to get the ball to Jones, Ragaini and LaPorta.

    I feel for Iowa fans. Wisconsin always seems to have their number. Still plenty of time, but yes time to start airing it out!

    Great TD throw by Pickett, rolled out of the pocket, threw across his body and delivered the ball on a line.

    McNamara for the Wolverines also looks like he is answering criticism of needing to step up. He has played well so far today.
