    I was looking at my hard drive today and was thinking about how during the offseason they air "classics"..it doesn't have to be from that long ago, just very exciting games. I was trying to think of some games that really showed how great Whites are. Now it wouldn't necessarily have to be the most White friendly team dominating, I remember what got me into caste football was Jacob Hester, and his performance against Florida in 2007. The two leading rushers for that game were Tebow and Hester. I don't know where online I could put these games but I thought it would be cool to compile them, what do you guys think?

    You can list however many you want, the one that comes instantly to my mind is Stanford vs Notre Dame 2009 where Toby Gerhart goes off. I just had deja vu, maybe I thought of this before and posted it. OSU's national championship win also comes to mind. We have great performances every week, but I don't know some games just have that "it" factor where its hard for even the jocksniffers to downplay it.

    interested to hear your opinions.

    My favorite would be Toby Gerhart's senior year against Pete Carroll's USC Trojans in the LA Coliseum. Four years earlier Carroll had told Toby he could come to USC and play fullback or outside linebacker........Toby instead went to Stanford to play RB. In the fourth quarter, with Stanford hanging on to a lead, and Toby in a single back formation, he ripped off ten and fifteen yard runs and would look over at Pete Carroll after every play. Eleven defenders and 90,000 people in the stands knew Toby was getting the ball and it didn't matter........good times!

    2007 Fiesta Bowl..
    Boise State came in as touchdown+ underdogs, and beat Oklahoma with a series of overtime gimmick plays. I remember one was a statue of liberty play,.. right out of the backyard.

    Not just resembling a classic 'caste' match-up (right ?).. but it was one of my favorite under-dog wins of all-time. A classic, & one of the last times I jumped up & cheered for a college game that didn't have my team involved..

    yeah i can't believe I forgot about that one. Should be enough time since it happened so no dwfs remember that interracial marriage proposal. Its like that is what he is famous for, proposing to a white chick on national television.

    As far as Gerhart, alot of games that year could be considered classics imo. Too bad it didn't go as good as it should have been. Harbaugh calling 4 consecutive passes on the goal line with Gerhart not in, they would've won that one game. Then Luck getting injured for the bowl game. Gerhart still put 100+ yards, just not the usual dominating 200 yard performance that he was accustomed to.


    Looking back, Gerhart should've gotten another year of eligbility, Jordan Shipley was able to get a medical redshirt, Gerhart played 1 game in 2007 before injuring his mcl and I don't believe he even redshirted his freshman year. With Andrew Luck having a year experience they could've seriously made a run for the national championship imo.

    I didn't see the Penn St Miami game but I will look for it. I liked Iowa vs Georgia Tech, 2010 Orange bowl, Brandon Wegher an all over them, looked to have a promising future as a college tailback.

    Here is the Boise State fiesta bowl

    [video=youtube;lwOZpcbLPxM]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwOZpcbLPxM[/video]

    You can probably google many of the better known bowl games in the past decade but I thought it would be cool for people to mention stuff and have it posted in this thread for the casual viewer, or someone wanting to rewatch a nice game. So any more games worth mentioning? would be greatly appreciated.

    I like to do that from time to time, especially after a poor weekend. Lately thats what I have been doing, not even bothering to watch live stuff, unless people post about something good, then I look it up.

    While I don't think mine are necessarily caste busting games, they are somewhat related in my mind. One of the last SEC games I watched in person was New Miss vs. Arkansas in 2003. The Conformists won 19-7. All of the scoring in the game was done by White players. I don't know of any more recent SEC games where both teams scored at least a TD and all the scoring was done by Whites. Another game that could have helped wake some folks up was BYU beating New Miss in Oxford in 2011, especially after Daniel Sorenson's comments.

    The games everyone else has mentioned were good in different ways. I don't think I've really consistently been into (emotionally) college games much since Toby Gerhart graduated, although anytime a White RB or WR is tearing it up, it makes me happy!

    yeah that byu game was good.

    I haven't been too into since Gerhart graduated either, I try to tune in to someone I think is going to have a big day but it rarely seems to work out with them getting consistent touches/targets. I watched the following year with Gaffney but it wasnt as good. Zach Zenner is one to check out though if you can find streams for fcs.


    Going to check out the Ole Miss/Ark game later tonight.

    USC versus Notre Dame November of 1988. Number 1 vs. Number 2.
    Great game at USC. USC had a 4.3 40 speed at tailback in Scott Lockwood, a 4.3 40 wr in Gary Wellman ( both played in the NFL ) and a great mid-range receiver in Eric Affholter. When was the last time USC played 2 white wide receivers?
    Notre Dame had Steve Bellares and Pat Eilers at flanker and a white corner in Stan Smagala who returned an errant Rodney Peete pass for a touchdown. Also Lockwood scored the only rushing td of the game on a 2 yard dive play. ND also had great defensive players like Jeff Alm ( committed suicide ) and Mike Stonebreaker. Just a great game with lots of white guys playing on both sides of the field at taboo positions.
