    Tim Hernandez a white soph. cb transfer to Oregon State has been moved to wr. Air Force has a couple of back ups that might get some playing time this year. East Carolina's Rocco Scarfone is gone. Air Force cb Gavin McHenry is gone. I can name about 3 other white corners that might play next year in Kansas State corner Johnny Durham, Kansas U. Collin Spencer, and possibly Oklahoma freshman Dillon Stoner who will probably wind up at wr. Army has a backup in Brian Regan but I don't expect him to play. The sad news of BYU's Micah Hanneman really takes the cake. 10 years ago I could name about 40 to 50 corners that got playing time and now we are down to a handful. At least the white rb is making a slight return to prominence.

    Upon further review he is on the 2016 roster. Still terrible and disheartening though.

    Yea it is but honestly I cannot recall a time where there were more than a few white cbs since I have been following college football (since about 2004)

    I followed college football closely in the 1990s and there were very few then either. And the ones that stood out of course either weren't drafted or were switched to safety by the NFL. Even Jason Sehorn was a backup safety his first two years with the Giants.

    Back 25+ years ago I seem to recall only Scott Case starting for Atlanta and they were a few swing defensive backs who started in a pinch like Herb Welch but the cupboard was pretty barren. We had a running joke of calling one of out starting corner backs on my high school football team Scott Case to this day I forgot the guys name but if I saw I would call him Scott Case...

    I was actually surveying collegiate track and field times when I realized sophomore hurdler Ashtyn Davis is listed as a second string corner on Cals spring depth chart. Strange for a walk on competing in a different sport this spring.

    Thanks for the update VS. Cal had Dan Fadelli a few years ago and he just dissapeared. Whatever happened to Cori Gaines a BYU corner who transferred to UNLV and was never heard from again. His brother was Kasey Gaines as I reported last year was a scholarship corner for Penn State but transferred because he " allegedly " got passed by two black freshmen on the depth chart. I can name a lot of other d 1 corners listed on depth charts but they rarely get a chance to play and most are preferred walk-ons.

    Saw this on Kansas State's Rivals home page. You have to be a member to have access to the story.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news but someone has to do it. Kenny Buyers has been moved to WR this off-season.

    Damn still looking forward to him as offensive playmaker. I have a dream one day whites will develop magical hip swivel...

    What a crock of caste **** - he was their best CB when healthy.

    So many shitty black cbs at every school in college football - it is beyond baffling why anyone would not acknowledge the caste system.

    Leonard fan. I just checked the North Texas web site and he is still listed as a corner and in 3 magazines I have read he is also a db there as well.

    Kenny Buyers needs to be whisked away to a zoo somewhere, then forced to mate with the female offspring of Jason Sehorn and Scott Case. It's f*cking amazing to think that only a single white man in the entire country is worthy of playing the sacred position. So ingrained is the caste system, that millions of participants throughout the nation are systematically purged from the position at all levels until it becomes 99.99% pure mud. A magical position, where footwork, quickness, hip fluidity, and instincts cannot be measured, but can only be observed by the keen eye of a talent scout or seasoned coach. I've got an idea: take 10 similar athletes, 5 white and 5 black, and let them do whatever drills or game simulations necessary to evaluate cornerbacks. Then, computer animate the video so their race is indeterminate. See if the cuckscouts can distinguish the 5 "real athletes" from the 5 white athletes. The ******* won't even know which images to jack off to...

    Just so you know the other f word is now off limits. Just ask Marty Mcfly. haha I hate the liberal media. I really do though I unfortunately have some liberal views on a few things. It sucks.

    I just checked the Kansas State 2 deep listed after spring practice and Durham is listed as a starter. I could not load the article so I don't know if it mentions that but that is some positive news I guess.

    My old eyes were reading this particular thread for the first time, and I misread the headline as "extinction of the white QB..." I am sure that's just a matter of time as well.

    I am pretty sure Ashtyn Davis has some black in him from pictures I have seen recently. Bummer.
