    Here is the thead for the most exciting player in the nation. Christian McCaffrey is a sophmore at Stanford University. He has a chance to win the heisman which is rare for anyone and he is only a sophmore. Christian has accounted for over 3000 total yards from scrimmage this season which is the 3rd highest total ever. He has one game left to try to break the hall of famer Barry Sanders All Time College Record. This kid is amazing. We need to post articles and videos about him here. Good luck to Christian McCaffrey & the Stanford Cardinals this saturday in the Pac !2 Championship. I also hope he wins the heisman as he deserves it.

    Christian McCaffrey is obviously an incredible football talent; the true sophomore is also taking care of business in the classroom, and doing so in a dynamic fashion.

    he was recently named a first-team Academic All American. well done, sir! :thumbsup:

    Christian McCaffrey already 93 yards rushing on 11 carries after just the 1st quarter vs USC....had a TD catch from abt 10 yards (lined up as WR) on screen; but was called back bec of 'Holding"...missed the replay to see if it was a legit call...Just threw a 11 yard TD pass on first play of 2nd qtr!

    Announcers said...After his freshman season McCaffrey has worked diligent on pass blocking to become the "Complete Back"

    McCaffrey now has over 140 yards mid 2nd quarter and Stanford is winning 13-0. The one thing that pisses me off is the Coach Shaw always takes him out in short yard situations. He has only around 6 rushing tds all year. Christian does all the work and the other guy gets the glory. If you wnat a kid to win the heisman, let him have the ball on the goal line. Anyways I hope he breaks Barry Sanders Record tonight and that they get the win.

    Christian McCaffrey has done it. He now is the all time most yards per scrimmage athlete in college football history. He broke Sanders Record in the 1st half.

    Wow, McCaffrey is totally dominating now, just had another TD with 1:30 to go. Already has broken the all-purpose record and has gone over 100 yards receiving along with around 200 rushing so far (in addition to 100 return yards). If he can do all he's done and doesn't win the Heisman, that puts the cherry on top for me regarding this anti-white system. This kids 100 percent deserves it.

    Yep, he'll finish with 461 total all-purpose yards, with over 200 rushing and over 100 receiving. He has over 700 total all-purpose yards combined in both of Stanford's games this season with USC.

    In a fair world he wins the award by a unanimous vote! Too bad he doesn't live in a fair world. We all know he probably will finish 3rd or 4th due to the idiots that vote. Please for once let me be wrong about this. The kid is the best player in the nation. It's really not even close! Good luck Christian.

    Amen. So, lemme get this straight: 10 years ago, Reggie Bush doesn't do nearly what McCaffrey did this year, yet plays in the same conference and gets all the hype. Now we see Christian doing amazing things in the same conference, but he gets delegitmized because of "time zone differences"....which also existed in 2005. Hahaha these anti-white, Pharisaic ****roaches are such terrible hypocrites. Oh well, all of us here know who the best player in the country truly is!

    Watching the post game analysis and the black guy basically summed it up - McCaffrey deserves to win the Heisman, but probably will not win it.
    He plays in the strongest conference and put up unbelievable numbers for one of the best teams in the country. There's nothing more he could do.
    But all that said, he expects the Alabama RB to win.
    The others agreed that he probably won't win, though he should be a candidate.

    I noticed that the game announcers said they were seeing him for the first time this season.
    Therein lies the problem. Many voters have not seen him play live or even live on TV! That's a huge disadvantage.
    That's due to him playing on the west coast, AND at Stanford in particular, their home games started at 7:30pm, which is 10:30pm on the east coast. I think that is a huge factor that will keep him from winning the Heisman, although he certainly deserves it.

    The Sportscucksters have no excuse, although they'll use it to deny him his just due. It's their job to know about almost all aspects of college football. I'm sure they have tape of the Stanford games that they could watch or compiled highlights at their workplace. Maybe they meant, the first time LIVE.

    Anyway, the bottom line is that if Christian were black, he'd be the sure front-runner and these same Sportscucksters would be saying that. It wasn't an excuse for Reggie Bush back in 2005 at USC, but it'll be a convenient excuse for Christian in 2015 at Stanford. If that's the case, then why don't they write in the bylaws of the Heisman that removes the possibility of a Stanford player to even be eligible for the Heisman. I'm sure it's no coincidence that neither Gerhart nor McCaffrey will win it even though they were the most deserving.

    Heretic speaks the truth. The anti white rb bias is absolutely sickening. People need to wake the f*** up. Everything in this country and around the world has become anti white. Fight for your rights people. We deserve fair treatment. Call them on this b.s. double standard.


    Christian McCaffrey is the most dynamic, electric, explosive player in the nation period. He leads the nation in all purpose yards by over 1100 yards over the 2nd place guy. What is not the best about him? Nothing. He has to win it!

    Great post. Perfect example of the caste system in action. He had a better performance than both of the other media anointed Heisman hopefuls - Henry of Alabama and Watson of Clemson. He does the exact same things Reggie Bush (and more) did when he got so much hype yet McCaffrey gets none of the buzz or accolades.

    Congrats to Christian on a great game and season.

    If Barry Sanders kid had done what McCaffrey did I am sure the situation would be a whole lot different.

    Henry isn't even in my second place for the Heisman, I'd put Baker Mayfield over him. Really hoping Mayfield will torch the Alabama defense.

    At the start of the game one of the announcers said McCaffrey looks faster in person than on tape. Don't know what that means.

    In addition to his excellent speed and moves, he seems to have great instincts. He has great timing on when to hit the hole. And on his last touchdown he found just the right spot to drift out to at just the right time.

    Great to see McCaffrey have an epic game, considering the disappointment Gerhart had this year. Should be interesting to see the PTB give Heisman to a worthy athlete. We shall see.

    Discounting return yardage and only accounting for yards from scrimmage, McCaffrey has 2,387 yards from scrimmage compared to Henry's 2,083 yards. It's also important to note that Stanford played a much tougher schedule than Alabama. Alabama has three hyphenated teams on their schedule that are glorified post-secondary high schools. Now add in McCaffrey's return yardage and the fact that he shattered an all time college totat yardage record. In a fair world McCaffrey would run away with the Heisman with over 90% of the vote and it has nothing to do with the time zones - that excuse was laughable. Mariotta won the Heisman just last year from the same time zone in the same conference!

    Gonna love to see him tear Urban Meyer's plantation.

    The media hype Reggie Bush received in 2005 was insufferable. He was constantly discussed and drooled over and every nice play he made was shown over and over on BSPN, CNN's defunct sports channel and elsewhere. And it continued for many years afterward even though Bush was a big disappointment in the NFL compared to the expectations, especially his first five years with the Saints.

    McCaffrey is having a better year than Bush did in '05, is just a sophomore, is the son of a former outstanding NFL player, and best of all is a White running back. The media, as Rush Limbaugh accurately said back in 2003 and caused him to be fired from BSPN, desires and promotes black quarterbacks because they want them to succeed. Why wouldn't the media want something much rarer, a promising White running back, to succeed?

    Let us count the ways why they don't. Actually let's not, because there's so many. Bottom line is that the power structure wants so badly to diminish and replace Whites that not a single one is supposed to ever be great at running back or cornerback. The Caste System in sports is an integral part of the all-out psy-war and demographic war being waged against Whites, which is the root cause of so much of the blatant double standards and unjust treatment we see.

    Excellent post Don. The powers that be know that by taking away any type of self pride the whites have, it will help to expedite their demise. Something they want very badly. Whites from the U.S. and around the world need to wake up soon as there is little time left. We are being forced into extinction by design.

    I have to give kudos to Stanford head coach, David Shaw, for his confidence, handling, and utilization of McCaffrey:

    Stanford coach David Shaw put a flattering label on his running back after the game.

    "To my left here is the best player in the nation," Shaw said. "I don't know if that's even a question. There's nobody in the nation doing what he's been doing. It's not even a debate."


    I wonder how he would've been used had he gone to another school besides Stanford. He probably would've been moved to slot receiver and compared to "Wes Welker". Or worse, end up like Trey Quinn did at LSU...invisible.

    Christian McCaffrey received a lot of publicity from last night's game and his performance in general. He's been compared to Reggie Bush at times, for what that's worth.

    J.B. Cash wrote a few years ago that on a pro team, a star RB is often The Man more than the QB, and the physical embodiment of the team. For example, John Riggins was (in that sense) The Man on the 1982-83 Redskins, not Joe Theismann.

    And Larry Csonka was the symbol of the 1972-73 Dolphins, more so than Bob Griese.

    I agree with the sentiments echoed here so far. In a fair world, this kid would be a shoe-in for the Heisman Trophy. The time zone thing is the most ridiculous excuse I've ever heard considering Mariota and Bush won it in the same conference. But of course, for Christian, it's an "excuse" simply because he's white.

    Let's compare.. Henry's good, but Alabama would likely have another RB step up to fill his production, and they would probably still be at just 1-2 losses. On the other hand, without McCaffrey, Stanford would likely not be anywhere near the Top 10, probably on the fringes of the Top 25. As David Shaw mentioned, it's easy to tell who the best player in the country is.
