    Rutgers cornerback Anthony Cioffi has now been moved to a more racially-appropriate role and is now their starting free safety. despite the move, Cioffi continues his ballhawking ways. he had 7 tackles (6 solo) and 3 pass break-ups in the Scarlet Knights' loss to Washington State after snaring an interception in their season-opener.

    BYU sophomore Micah Hanneman looked MUCH more comfortable in his second game starting as the field corner for the Cougars. his stat line, while seemingly insignifcant, is much more in line with what a good cornerback's should look like: 1 solo tackle, especially compared to last week's performance.

    a week ago against Nebraska, he had 6 tackles (4 solo) and the leaping interception above, but he looked overwhelmed in his first start. the tackles were a result of him being hesitant in breaking on the ball, which resulted in his giving up several easy short catches, and he was weak and undisciplined against the run. he gave up the edge on a handful of occasions, which turned into big gains for Nebraska, and he didn't take on blocks, instead trying to dance around and avoid them.

    it looks like he was coached up during the week, as he made a BIG improvement in both areas against the Broncos.

    this week, he was much more disciplined in coverage, and he kept contain when defending against the run (unlike last week). he was also MUCH more physical in his second outing, as seen in the picture below where he knocked the ball loose from Boise's Chaz Anderson.

    after looking for ways to avoid contact against the Huskers, he readily attacked blockers in the running game, forcing the ball carriers back inside, and he wasn't afraid to "man up" on the outside in coverage. he was even called for a very questionable pass interference, which i viewed as a positive despite the penalty. he wasn't willingly ceding position to the opposing wideouts this week, and he was fighting to beat them to their spot.

    with his athletic ability, he has the potential to be an outstanding player. and if his progress between week 1 and week 2 is any indication, he's willing to improve. he's one to keep an eye on.

    The threads listed above were all either in the NFL section or the college section. I wanted one overarching thread to include information on white cornerbacks from all levels, high school, college and pro. That's why I started a new thread and put it in the Happy Hour section.

    For those interested in the subject the threads listed by FootballDad are well worth looking at.

    Kenny Buyers, the best defensive back on the North Texas roster (and one of the most underrated corners in the country) appears to be out for the year after suffering a back injury in the preseason. that's sad news for a terrific football player who was finally beginning to get some much-deserved recognition for his ability.

    BYU sophomore Michael Hannemann has played better every game this season. against Michigan, he gave up only one completion, a highlight-reel catch that i'll post below in which he was in good position but was simply beaten by a superb effort. otherwise, he was a complete White-out to the opposition, including breaking up 2 passes in beautiful fashion. he played strong in run support, as well, tying for the team lead with Wadsworth with 10 tackles (5 solo). he played through an injury much of the second half, and ended up leaving the game with a couple minutes left. it remains to be seen if he will play tonight against UConn.

    A couple of years ago a white cornerback named Donny Lisowski played well in the preseason for the Seahawks.

    He was cut anyway and never got another opportunity.

    Lisowski ran a 4.38 40 at his pro day so he was definitely fast enough to play cornerback in the NFL.

    One of the narratives advanced by the anti-whites is that white men are too slow to play cornerback.

    Josh Norman of the Panthers is considered to be a good cornerback. He ran a 4.66 40 at the combine, which is slow for a cornerback. Yet he is successful.

    Many white men run faster than Norman. There are many white men athletic enough to play cornerback in the NFL.

    The only reason there are no white cornerbacks in the NFL is racism, pure and simple.

    Here's a video which briefly discusses why there are no white cornerbacks in the NFL. It sort of touches on the real reason there aren't but not very strongly. The reason is blatant racial discrimination.

    The idea that white people can be discriminated against is a remote possibility in the minds of most DWFs. The discussion starts at 3:50.
