    If you look at his highlights from that game, he was doing it against an almost systematic NFL quota of blacks on defense...in other words, I think I might have witnessed one or two White players. How many of those black players on defense that he ran through and around will receive a football scholarship...even if to a minor school?

    DonBoscos Brennan can frigging hit! Navy has got themselves an absolute steal in this young man. 1st ever 4year starter at one of the best HS in the country... Needless to say he should have more offers. He also has hundred yards rushing against in state rival and fellow powerhouse Bergen Catholic.

    After watching 114 combined points in last week's Bedlam btwn Oklahoma & Oklahoma State ....had to wonder are white defenders really that bad?? Because there certainly was NOT a white Starter out of 22 Worthy of being on either Defense ??.....(D-End Cole Walterscheid is a co-starter?) 1 of 22?? Still the disparity is eye popping...Basketball on turf....but do believe Oklahoma State under coach Jimmy Johnson could have been the 1st CFB Team ever to start no white's back in the mid 80's??

    So Outside Linebacker comes to mind for some reason. And taking a look at the Top 100 OLB Prospects from the 24 7 Recruiting Service...there are 15 white....9 Poly's...1 Native American?? & 75 black players. This would almost seem on par with the NFL.....So who in 18' could be the next Ryan Kerrigan or Sean Lee or TJ Watt??

    #4 Payton Wilson (NC)....6'-4" 225 Committed to UNC
    #13 Bo Calvert (CA).....USC.....following other LB's Porter Gustin & Cameron Smith
    #18 Jack Sirmon (TN)...Washington...Dad Peter played for Oregon & NFL/Titans
    #21 Jake Venables (SC)....Clemson who continues buck the trend on Defense; son of Def Coordinator Brent
    #25 Evan Tettersall (CA)....to Cal?
    #26 Dillon Doyle (IA)....Iowa Commit
    #34 Charlie Katshir (PA) ...Penn State
    #39 Thomas Rush (OH) ....Minnesota
    #53 Chance Campbell (MD)....Maryland
    #68 Grant Misch (VA)....6'-4" 232...Virginia
    #70 Michael Rose (OH)....Iowa State
    #80 Josh Marsh (AL)....Auburn...been a couple years since white scholarship defender has played there
    #81 Case Gatlin (FL)...Uncommitted ...Powerhouse IMG Academy
    #87 Brandon Hawkins (TX) ...Boise State
    #88 Jonathan Hess (AL) 6'-5" 215....Ole Miss

    Then went on a little further past 100.....noticed the next 8 of 13 prospects were white
    #101 Harrison Taylor (GA) 6'-4" 240....Appalachian St.
    #104 Joshka Gustav (CA) Colorado Commit
    #105 Mason Platter (WI) 6'-5" 220....Wisconsin
    #107 Zach Schlager (NE) ...Colorado State....older brother DB starter
    #108 Hunter Webb (PA) U.Conn
    #110 Rushton Roberts (FL) ...Colorado State
    #112 Morgan Ernst(TN) & #113 Brandon Mays (FL) ... Army Commits

    Iowa lands "off-the-charts" 6'3", 230lb "athlete", Ben VanSumeren.

    Only offers from Power 5 were Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota and Missouri. He was a product of Michigan and ranked the number 24th prospect in that state but neither Michigan nor Michigan State were interested???

    The Garber, Michigan product — who can deadlift 475 pounds and boasts a 40-inch vertical — emerged in the Midwest recruiting scene after piling up 77 catches for 1,446 yards and 13 touchdowns as a sophomore and junior at Essexville Garber High School. But he picked up steam at last year's Nike The Opening regional camp in Cleveland, where was rated the country's No. 1 underclassman tight end.

    His frame and speed combination translate to any number of positions at the college level, including linebacker, where Iowa primarily recruited him. The 247Sports Composite gives him three stars and ranks him the No. 24 2018 prospect from Michigan. Rivals gives him two stars.

    No wonder "Butch" Jones is out at Tennessee. He's such a Caste clown that he didn't even recruit an in-state White 4-star ILB that most other SEC teams offered, including Alabama.

    Wow that young man has some serious offers! Be interesting to see where he chooses to go. And ya what a frigging knob Butch is! Glad he's done.

    "I noticed both Iowa and Iowa St. were able to flip 2 North Dakota St. commits!"

    That's bad news for North Dakota St. If Iowa, Iowa St. and Nebraska start recruiting those white Midwestern players who usually play for the Dakota schools, say goodbye to the North Dakota St. domination. NDS will stop beating their D-1 opponents they play every 2 or 3 years. But it will be great news for those white players. Bittersweet. Cause it was great to see a white I-AA team dominate that level of football.

    However, if those white players sit on the bench at those big Div. I-A schools, what's the point?

    I don't think they would waste a scholarship if their plans were to sit them. The still untapped talent in Nebraska and the surrounding area alone could power ND State.

    NDST might take a hit but their 5 year consecutive championship run will forever be legendary! They did it with powerhouse mostly white teams directly as a result of other major programs ignoring regional talent! Though they did become more caste at the skill positions after success (ala Boise St., Wisconsin, etc. )

    Basically I think highly of The Bison and the program they've built. They could move up to D1 and easily make a bowl their first year (App. St. ) But I'm also thrilled to see teams like Iowa and Iowa St, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota(Fleck seems better? ) open their eyes to the talent around them and bring in some local talent! Plenty left to go around still to the Dakota schools in FCS and the Minnesota schools in D2!

    Iowa offers 2018 WR Drake Stoops, Bob Stoops' son...no offer from OU, yet (and I'm not holding my breath that they will offer him). Hard to believe Bob Stoops suited up for Iowa.

    6'5 200lb 2Star QB prospect in Nate Carter committs to UW as walk-on
    (heard that one before! ).

    This is the kid Badger DWFs don't deem worthy enough of a scholarship despite being a State Championship winning QB with excellent size and stats. Roughly 2k yards and mid sixties completion percentage..

    Meanwhile 4yr bust, Florida Native, and of course afflete, George Rushing is transferring outof UW . Former 3 star prospect was obviously over hyped an a waste of a scholarship.

    It's hard to bash Hornibrook too much because they did win 12 games with him leading the helm but he is somewhat off in his mechanics - he had a few missed throws due to sloppy mechanics in the Big Ten championship game. I hope he continues to refine his mechanics and improve at the position but I also want some talent in their to push him. Wisconsin should be a destination spot for 4 or 5 star Pro Style QBs.

    Agreed hoping Hornibrook progresses otherwise he'll be another Joel Stave. Badgers also have commitment from 3star Ohio QB Chase Wolf. He's 6'2 195 don't know much else about him. They also have Coan who I'm high on, but it's frustrating to see other schools stockpile stud QBs while we struggle to get them in for a visit!

    In my analysis of Hornibrook, he throws a hard and accurate pass when he needs to hit someone over the middle or with low-trajectory passes, but he lacks the touch and accuracy on his fade patterns. I'm hoping Wisconsin coaches see that too and work with him on that.

    Apparently, Fleck cannot find quality White OL prospects up there in Minnesota or in that entire surrounding area as two black OL from Florida just committed to him.

    And BYU just signed a dual-threat quota.

    And he gets yet another black OL commitment today, from California. Huge disappointment.

    So much for that Minnesota Snow Plow! Instead getting sumos from California and Florida! Ha! What a clown, good news is he won't last long in Minneapolis. Another year or two tops. He stunk his first year as coach and with recruiting tactics like that he won't be around long. So much for his recruiting strategy of recruiting within 250mile radius. Guess he left that thought process in Western Michigan . Legit **** this guy! Definition of New,young, loud mouthed, caste coach.
