    Obligatory comparison to Wes Welker, of course.

    Espn's Heather Dinich labeled Campanaro as a impact player for the upcoming 2012 season. That being said.. How the **** does she have such a good job? She clearly does not have that much football knowledge, just another affirmative action hire.

    She is PRECISELY an affirmative action hire. She went to school at someplace called

    "APSE/Sports Journalism Institute
    "


    What the heck is the APSE? Apparently, it is a sports journalism school that caters to minorities and women,
    A crash course in sports journalism next summer at the Poynter Institute May 31- June 8, where their instruction will come from working professionals in daily sports journalism plus staff from Poynter. Class sessions will range from ethics to photo editing to how to keep running score at a baseball game to copy editing. Travel and rooming expenses will be arranged by the institute and paid for by the institute.
    Eight weeks of professional experience at a paid internship in the sports department of a daily newspaper (June 9-Aug. 3).
    A $500 scholarship upon successful completion of the program for students returning to college.

    So she took a crash course in "how to keep score at a baseball game" and that and her vagina turned into a job covering the Maryland football team as a beat writer. Which led to a sports gig at ESPN.

    People wonder why White men are pissed off.

    Only 10-15 years ago there was hardly any female reporter or sports caster except for the annoying "sideline reporter" in football. It's even mandatory now for head coaches to actually talk with them and answer their inane questions with some semblance of respect while either going into the locker room at the end of the first half or coming out of the locker room after half time. It's yet another self-esteem boosting mandatory prop of the social engineers so they can give them the illusion they are being successful in the "careers".

    Now AA females are all over the place hosting, casting, and reporting on every male sporting event and show and it's annoying as hell. In the not-so-distant past it was just understood (by all) that this was male-only territory and those bounds were respected. However, the tentacles of Cultural Marxism knows no bounds. In several years, due to the increasingly extreme and incessant march of AA and Cultural Marxism, you can expect at least 51% of all sports reporters, casters, hosts to be female.

    Campanaro received ACC Player Of The Week for wide receiver for his big effort against the Tar Heels.:thumbsup:

    RECEIVER

    Michael Campanaro, Wake Forest, Jr., WR, 5-11, 195, Clarksville, Md. Campanaro caught a career-high 13 passes for a career-high 164 yards in Wake Forest’s 28-27 win over North Carolina on Saturday. Campanaro had nine catches for 108 yards in the first half as Wake Forest built a 21-14 halftime lead. He had four catches for 56 yards in the second half, including one 15-yard reception on the game-winning drive. Campanaro’s 13 receptions were two shy of the school record and the most ever by a Deacon versus the Tar Heels.

    This kid is so talented. We better be watching him on Sundays in the future. Congrats to Michael on breaking the record.

    Nah, just like Connor Vernon, he can break every record ever recorded and he'll still be UDFA. You see, his game doesn't "translate" to the next level, whatever that means. Black players though, the same ones that he dominates at the college level, all of of sudden realize a giant, magical burst of "upside" as soon as their name is called from the podium, and that's what suddenly transforms them from "college player" to "NFL player". Whites are largely incapable of this miraculous transformation.

    Oct 19, 2013, against Maryland, Campanaro becomes Wake Forest's all-time catch leader.

    Big day too, 11 catches for 122 yards (1 TD).

    Congrats to Campanaro & the Demon Deacs..

    Campanaro came into the day averaging 113+ rec. yards a game.. an incredible season, in the homestretch of a historic career.

    Unfortunately he suffered a broken collar bone today, and is reported out for 4-6 weeks.. As a senior this could be the end of Campanaro's college career. I guess if Wake wins their last few, he could come back for an undercard-type mid-December Bowl.

    hoping I see him in the NFL. I'm gonna save this thread in my favorites, to try and report on his recovery, offseason, & draft.

    He should be a second round pick - I hope somehow he survives the typical caste treatment.

    Well he was drafted in the 7th by Baltimore. I hope that he makes an impact.

    He may have a chance with the Ravens, though likely not for a season or longer. Even though they're a strong Caste team, Baltimore's played a fair number of White TEs and even had Brandon Stokley briefly last year (as well as earlier in his career). I figure Steve Smith will be used more as a slot guy this year as he's slowed down considerably, and Campanaro might be his heir apparent if things go well. I can see Joe Flacco looking to him as a reliable outlet just as he does for Dennis Pitta.

    As a note, updates on college players who are drafted should start as new threads on their NFL team forum.
