    Illinois extends Hatie Smiff :confused::rolleyes: - hilarious. They have become a huge caste team so no big loss. Epstein should look into transferring though.

    Eh seeing Fedora and Kingsbury get the boot makes sense. Both pretty caste with good offenses and piss poor defenses.

    As for Smith getting extended, it's perfect representation for what Illinois has become as a State. Smiff just needs a few more years of recruiting Chicago's Affletes!

    TTU and UNC could go worse with who they bring in but honestly their is no real viable options in terms of being white friendly. Supposedly Mack Brown has interest in the job. He will never be mistaken as white friendly.

    So Lovie Smith has a steady history of losing yet gets extended. A classic example of black privilege. You don't have to be good at your job, you just have to be black. A white coach would have been fired.

    The leftists have changed our culture. The ideal used to be to hire people who were best at their jobs. Now it's hire people from certain groups, refuse to hire people from other groups and don't take the ability to do the job into account.

    Per Weenieworld this is who the TT AD is targeting:

    Oregon DC Jim Leavitt, Utah State coach Matt Wells, and Clemson DC Brent Venables.

    Leavitt is a huge caste stooge going back to his days at USF (wouldn't be surprised if he was partly responsible for Schooler moving from DB to WR), Matt Wells does not believe whites can play QB and Venables isn't very white friendly for Clemson although their has been an uptick in white defensive recruits.

    Illinois sounds like they have given up. They play in a crap stadium ( compare their facilities to Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Iowa etc. good grief what a difference) and will likely have a bottom feeder team for many more years now. A much smaller school like Northwestern seems to have more dedicated fan base than the Illini which tells you all you need to know and Lovie Smith remaining ensures that Illinois will be a non factor. And a boring one at that. He will continue to get "athletes" that can't play football properly. Perhaps that long contract will be cut short though. Even dead end schools like Illinois have a breaking point--I think.

    Mixed feelings regarding NC's Fedora. A terrible game manager I am willing to get behind a HC who is willing to play white skill athletes and showcase them. Think Ryan Switzer and Austin Proehl to name two. If they hire Mack Brown chances are good you won't see a white WR play for him. In fact Fedora had some good years and despite the recent downturn I would have kept him for at least a couple of more years to see if he could have turned things around. On the caste meter Fedora while not great was decent enough.

    As has been mentioned there really isn't such a thing as an anti caste coach but you try to make do with the best available. Of the above possible Head Coaches Leofan mentions above I am willing to give Brent Venables the most benefit of doubt. He starts a NFL type S in Tanner Muse who has been groomed under Venables. Also waiting in the wings are several young white defenders and a notable young S in Nolan Turner. And this is a "southern" school. Also I believe Venable's son is a CB prospect. To me someone "big" should hire him.

    Frankly, I'm not surprised in the least that Hatie wasn't fired. I was surprised, however, that he was actually given an extension. It's probably to show "stability" in the organization to the current recruiting class and current crop of players. If everything was reversed...if he were White and recruited 95%+ White players only, he would've been canned with that record or even with a better record and called a racist as well.

    I did read that they were completing like a $200 million state-of-the-art football facility in the Summer of 2019 on their campus (priorities, you know, in a bankrupt state like Illinois), so I expect them to be competitive in the years to come.

    Illinois sucks, my entire life they sucked and since if you look at what passes for leadership at that school you realize it is a looting opportunity for a certain oppressed group. They went to the Rose Bowl one year and were blown out, oh and the town sucks as well. Illinois State at Bloomington might be a better alternative and the kids call ISU I Screwed Up. In a just world Illinois would be assigned to the MAC.

    Georgia Tech HC Paul Johnson stepped down. You wonder what will happen to their option attack?

    And what about RB Nate Cottrell? If they stop running the option will they line up Cottrell at tail back? Will he disappear? I don't think the speedster is on NFL draft lists but if they let him return punts and kicks to go along with RB duties perhaps it could boost his profile. I wouldn't hold your breath though.

    Will have to wait until next season to find out.

    GT has been less friendly recently and it’ll probably continue to digress. Guys like QuadeW aren’t going to be sought after.....I hope I’m wrong....I like wishbone football....
    I see them going full caste,....

    Anyone watching NIU-Buffalo? NIU is worth rooting for...

    Sutton Smith on D......They are down by 19 in the second half.....

    Ga Tech has been pretty much a caste team for quite a awhile. If my memory serves me correctly in the early-mid 00s prior to Johnson arriving Ga Tech was a bastion for scattershot quotabacks. I am not overly optimistic at any of the head coaching changes.

    Mel Tucker, an AA DC from UGA, is the new head coach of the CU Buffs. Everyone is raving about the hire locallly. We’ll see if he can recreate the magic of Jon Embree

    Interesting fact, both main Colorado univerisities, CU and CSU both now have for former Georgia coordinators (OC - bobo and DC - Tucker)

    Look out for more imports from the south on the Colorado campus as he will neglect white players from Colorado and the midwest (not that the last coach didn't do the same).

    Side notes......Laird had over 100 yards in a loss to Stanford......He ripped a 60 yarder....
    He’s now over 900 yards for the year.....Needs a good bowl game.....

    Noah Fant from Iowa declared early for the draft....
    The powers at be slobber over him, I’m a bit more skeptic....
    The underclassman Hockensen (spelling?) seemed more solid as a football player....

    McElwain has been hired as the CMU head coach. CMU seemed to be darkening under the now departed Bonamego so we will probably see that trend continue with McElwain at the helm.

    Interestingly enough PFF has whites listed as their top 5 graded OTs for this season. I have already seen Risner being slotted as a center or interior OL for the draft. More proof of the caste system at work. Joe Lowery is a senior and I have heard nothing about him - hopefully he gets some buzz and sees his draft stock improve.

    Oregon junior T Calvin Throckmorton is Pro Football Focus' No. 5 graded offensive tackle through the first 13 weeks of the season.

    PFF hands Throckmorton a 92.3 grade for his pass blocking, which is fourth best among offensive tackles, but he's also a capable run blocker checking in at No. 7 in the country. It's high honors for the junior who was tasked in protected potential top-five pick QB Justin Herbert this season. Throckmorton (6'6/318) is draft eligible, but there is no word on if he will leave after a quality junior season. The other offensive tackles in PFF's top-five are: 1) Alabama's Jonah Williams, 2) Ohio's Joe Lowery, 3) Wisconsin's Cole Van Lanen, and 4) Kansas State's Dalton Risner.

    CMU really darkened the last couple of years, along with their recruiting...and the team tanked. Once again, the coaches think that the 100th best black player at any position, even if unrated, is better than a 2 or 3-star White player that only has offers from an FCS university.

    No fan of McElwain, but he'll probably actually be fairer to White players than the previous coaching regime there. At least McElwain has been White-friendly at the QB position and while at Florida he actually recruited a few Whites on defense, e.g.) Alex Anzalone. I guess it'll have to be a wait-and-see.

    I don't think he was white friendly at QB but do agree about Anzalone, Ivey and Taven Bryan. He shunned Will Grier and played a scattershot quota and recruted the mulatto Franks.

    He deviated a bit at Florida, but was White-friendly at QB when he was at Alabama and Colorado State.

    Star slot receiver McLane Mannix is transferring out of Nevada. After 2 years he recorded an impressive stat line of 107-1653-13 and should be on the radar of bigger schools. He has 2 years of eligibility left. This should also mean an increased role for Kaleb Fossun next year, he put up good numbers this season.

    Mannix is an important player. Pros and cons to this move although the upside is better with a transfer.

    The bad: I assume he will have to sit out a full year?

    The bad: The article I read didn't make it clear he wants to transfer to another school leaving open the dreadful idea that he is quitting football.

    The good: He lands on a higher profile preferably Power 5 school and plays well enough to warrant a combine invite and from there getting drafted.

    That last scenario would be the best but we will have to wait and see what happens to him. He has legitimate speed and could be an NFL prospect down the road so a lot is riding on his upcoming decision.
