    I find it hilarious that the first guy to wear the turnover chain for Miami was a white guy, Scott Patchan recovered a fumble in the 2nd quarter. Hopefully that’s the first of many turnovers he gets this season!

    Not sure why he did not transfer alot sooner. Hopefully he lands somewhere he is wanted and gets a chance to start. I believe he is eligible immediately.

    USC redshirt sophomore QB Jack Sears announced Tuesday that he has entered his name into the transfer portal.

    Sears (6'3/205) lost out in the competition to be USC's starting quarterback during fall camp, with JT Daniels being named the starter, freshman Kedon Slovis earning the backup job and Matt Fink following him. As a result the redshirt sophomore has decided to enter his name into the portal, and due to the fact that he's already graduated from USC Sears won't lack for offers on the transfer market. He appeared in one game last season, completing 20 of 28 passes and throwing for 235 yards and two touchdowns in a three-point loss to Arizona State.

    South Carolina QB Jake Bentley out 6 weeks. Highly touted Ryan Hilinksi is now the starter. Bentley was a QB I had high hopes for in terms of a draft prospect - this is not the ideal way to start off his senior campaign. If Hilinksi comes in and plays well I am guessing Bentley is done as a starting QB and his draft stock is on the down swing.

    Boise State had a big freshman running back a decade or longer ago who scored a bunch of touchdowns and then left the program and nothing was ever heard about him again. Anyone remember his name?

    No, his first name was John I believe, but definitely not Hatie Smith's "waterboy" Brock Forsey.

    I'm surprised that we haven't seen more of this story, it's potentially a huge problem for the NCAA. It's a bill that will be making its way to Gavin "Poofter" Newsom's desk shortly that mandates that student athletes will be paid for merchandising with their names or likenesses. Since lacrosse, college baseball, wresting, etc. are not really hot sports for jersey sales, it's a poorly disguised way to pay your favorite college afflete, as if free tuition and having all of your homework and exams done for you is not enough.

    At this point it would not bother me as it would cause the eventual collapse of the whole NCAA system. Colleges and universities will feel the impact which would be great as they are all bastions of marxism. These "student" athletes get a free education while their peers who attend these schools are mired in debt for years. College athletes are compensated and setup to for success - their failures and the pursuit of easy money are what is really in question here.

    I don't have a problem with the NCAA destruction but with the intent of the legislation, ultimately. It is to further enrich student-affletes. The vast majority of athletes who will benefit from this are in football and basketball, the highest-profile college sports. Ergo, blacks will be the prime beneficiaries. Black athletes with lots of money in college will attract more white women, further destruction of the white race. Neat how our overlords think, right? Anything to further the ultimate goal.

    I have no problems with this legislation and it should have happened decades ago, while Blacks will benefit from this the most in terms of numbers, Whites like Trevor Lawrence could be multi-millionaires before they sign a pro contract.

    Also you may see a few superstar athletes stay in college for the full 4 years in lower paying sports like track and field, I can't see baseball or hockey players making much off this as guys can just turn pro and get 6 figure to 8 figure contracts when they turn pro and they can leave college any time they want to do this.

    As for money corrupting players, it's already happening ie the various pay for play scandals at least most of the money will be above board and taxed and organized crime won't be able to get their hooks on players as easily.

    Keegan Duncan transferred from Boise St to Utah St. Probably going to be a bad decision considering who the head coach is. My guess is they will convert him to LB since he doesn't have "juice" to use the words of uber caste whore Utah St coach Gary Andersen.

    King has been one of the overrated quotas in the college ranks. His team is 1-3 now - he has had a mediocre start to his senior season so he is playing the system - quitting the Cougars to transfer to another team next year. It will be interesting to see what team takes a chance on him - my guess is that he has delusions of being another magical midget upsider NFL starting quotaback.

    Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston confirms that Houston senior QB D'Eriq King will leave the program and transfer, according to King's father, after initial reports that King would be sitting out for the season.

    At first, reports were that King (5'11/195) would sit out the season and redshirt, but it was not quite clear what his intentions were. As King's father confirms, the senior QB will be leaving the Houston program to transfer elsewhere for the 2020 season. Since King has not redshirted yet and only played in four games this season, he is eligible to redshirt under the recent rule changes. Be on the lookout for updates on King's school search and decision over the coming weeks. Through four games in 2019, King completed 58-of-110 attempts for 663 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. King's 6.0 yards per pass attempt in 2019 is by far the lowest mark of his career.


    And some bad news on one of the few white RBs in the college ranks:

    Arkansas State junior RB Ryan Graham has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL during Saturday's win over Southern Illinois.
    Losing Graham (5'11/200) is a tough blow for the Red Wolves to absorb, as the junior college All-American is second on the team in rushing yards (134) and first in rushing touchdowns (two) through four games. The junior running back was one-third of a solid running back trio with Marcel Murray, who currently lead the Red Wolves with 136 rushing yards, and Isiah Azubuike (128 yards). Murray has been hampered by an ankle injury recently and did not play in Saturday's win over the Salukis. Should Murray not be able to play in Saturday's game at Troy, Azubuike will be asked to shoulder much of the load for the Red Wolves.

    that’s a tough break for Graham, who had emerged as the big-play threat for Arkansas State. hopefully, he bounces back stronger and faster than ever for next season.

    I also saw Maryland RB Jake Funk tore his ACL again. Terrible news.

    Unfortunately for Houston, the new magical midget has decided to stay:

    That is even more bizarre - redshirt on purpose when healthy?

    I don't follow BYU anymore from a tv perspective but still do on paper. He was mentioned by me and others a few years ago but DB , Beau Tanner, is now BYU's starting strong safety. He was a junior college wr transfer and was regarded as the fastest player on the team. I noted he did not look very good as a wideout and the next year he was a starting corner out of spring ball. He inexplicably tried to transfer last year and no one wanted him. I thought he quit ball. Two weeks ago he showed up on ourlads depth chart at second string corner. Now he is their starting ss. Just weird. He has no pro potential that I can see.

    Though back when I started following college football in 88' I was always wondering why there were so few whites at the skill positions. There seems to have been a mini comeback with the white rb and wr but corner has really gone down hill in the last 30 years. It wasn't to long ago that many teams had white corners on the team and some started two. BYU had an all white starting secondary and an all white second string secondary during the Luke Staley years. Wisconsin in 92' had 2 starting corners in Jeff Messenger and Korey Manley. Messenger inexplicably moving to FS his senior year. Eric Weddle for Utah moving to safety his senior year, Brian King of West V. started as a great corner and moved to safety his senior year. Syracuse's Steven Gregory inexplicably being moved to wr his junior year despite arguably being SU's best defender. Arkansas had two starting white corners in Chris Chalmers and Zack Painter. Texas Tech had Jordan Peterson until injuries hit hard. Baylor had a 4.3 guy in Matt Anderson. Indiana and Georgia even had 2 starting corners since 1992. Now I see that a total of 3 white corners have garnered playing time so far this year as Iowa's Riley Moss is injured. Fejeledem was moved to safety. Rutgers A. Cioffi was moved to safety a few years ago. What kills me is Arizona State due to injuries moved a very large white safety to corner in Brett Hudson and he played great that year with 4 interceptions. Who did he play alongside? Josh Golden another fast white corner. Things have changed due to stereotypes in the last 30 years and it is getting sadder and sadder. At least the white wr has made a small comeback and there are a few more Mccaffreys out there in Shipley, Romano ( Idaho ) and possibly Epstein if he ever beats the injury bug.

    In those late 80's Jimmy Johnson built Miami Defense more on Speed ...Defensive Ends became D-Tackles ; Linebackers became D-Ends; Safeties became LB'ers; Corner Backs became Safeties. Slowly but surely it became the copy cat blueprint.....
    How many starting Corner Backs in the NFL today a truly "Elite"?? 5 ? 10? NO WAY there is NOT One White athlete out of 64 capable of starting CB

    .....>>Way back in mid ; late 80's?Alabama bad azz CB John Mangum was Switched to SAFETY with Chicago Bears; that was the beginning of white CB's being phased out

    Eric Weddle a Corner Back at Utah will always be remembered for shutting down Calvin Johnson in the Bowl game.

    How about Ohio State's Dustin Fox (well documented here)...He was a CORNER BACK plain & simple! NOT a Safety Had he wore dark visor & cover ups & changed his name to DeVante...he would have!

    I thought Texas A&M's Jordan Peterson had a legit chance at CB until all of the injuries

    Max Borghi has also been dubbed Christian McCaffrey "Lite"...hopefully Will Shipley can solidify this
    Ben Glines(Boston College) had THREE consecutive 100+ games rushing last season ; yet moved (wasted) him to Slot WR this season; he's getting the Ryan Nall or Peyton Hillis treatment

    Here’s a quote from Will Shipley’s visit to Clemson, I HATE even hearing this kind of talk.

    “One of the concerns for Shipley going into the visit was where he stood in the recruiting pecking order since Elliott already has the one running back commitment. What he needed to know with certainty was Elliott’s plan about taking a second back in the ’21 class, or if he likes him enough for another position, such as slot receiver.”

    And another quote.

    “I did get the chance to talk with coach Elliott the other day and he said he’s going to continue to recruit me. I don’t know if it’s still at running back or a it’s a little bit more at receiver now. I’m looking to get some of the details this Saturday.”

    I usually want our guys to go to Clemson but for Shipley I say STAY AWAY FROM THAT. There’s is absolutely no reason to switch positions or even entertain talk about it. Shipley is already NFL slot receiver size as a 16 year old (5’11” 200lbs), so clearly he’s on a perfect tract to be ideal RB size. He plays safety for his high school too, another position that he already has NFL size for. If these coaches were smart they would realize he can put on about 15 pounds easily and continue playing his natural position of running back.

    When has there ever been talk about a 5 star RB moving to WR?

    Twenty Two, 2 years ago SI.com did a long and very detailed story on the plight of white cornerbacks. It mostly focuses on the NFL, but does get into the college game a bit. That might be the only article you need to find, as the writer went back and found most that actually played cornerback at a high level in college (and NFL) and discussed the issue with them. The discrimination was so overt and plain to see, that even the ultra-Liberal SI writer was suggesting something seems really off?

    While many ex-white cornerbacks Cucked and Jived and didn't want to acknowledge the truth, former Ohio State Dustin Fox flat out stated his race cost him an NFL career, claiming he was natural cornerback, forced to play safety. Fox also stated it still really bothers him a lot today. They also tracked down the freaky fast Donnie Lisowski* that made a strong run at making the Seahawks roster earlier this decade. He was weird, seeming very happy and confident he absolutely proved himself as a NFL player, but not real upset he was cut repeatedly? As I recall, everyone agreed (even black Seahawks DB's) he was a legit NFL talent, but his inevitable "racial cleansing" was justified/Kosherized due to his lack of size.

    Twenty Two, that article should be easy to find. Just put in the name (in your search engine) of lesser known cornerback's like Donnie Lisowski and Tory Nixon and "white cornerback". Again, it was from the spring of 2017 at SI.com. Actually, Richard Sherman and others were looking back and claiming the best white cornerback they ever saw played was at Stanford (briefly last decade). They felt he would be a true "unicorn" (potential NFL star white CB), had it not been for injuries that destroyed his career. Personally, I bet if he did not have injuries he would've still wound up like Fox and ex-Cal star cornerback Chris Conte. Drafted in round 3 as free safeties. Heck, even Sehorn was drafted (end of round 2) as a safety and spent two futile seasons there, before Dan Reeves (who was not as Caste as most) moved him back to cornerback and saved his career. As far as the ex-Stanford cornerback that never became the "next Sehorn", article claims he went on to marry a black woman, so chances are he's totally cucked and probably totally blind and indifferent to the Caste system.

    The whole playing 4 games and redshirting is a new phenomenon sparked by the Houston quotaback D'Eriq King and a few others this year. His backup Clayton Tune played well last year and is a better fit for a Holgerson offense. I hope Tune finishes the year strong and secures the starting position. My guess is King has delusions of NFL success so he might try to jump ship and transfer anyways but I would love to see Tune have a strong 2 months as the Houston QB.
