    It means he plays hard all the time, there is no let down in him at all.

    On a somewhat related note, I doubt Hester starts the rest of the season, but 1 or 2 more games wouldn't surprise me. Edited by: Colonel_Reb

    the "shrinking violet" remark i think was from the Hawkins article, and it means what the Colonel said.

    good luck to both guys as they have finally begun to get noticed for their talent instead of screwed because of their color. [​IMG]

    I'm glad I caught that! I meant to seperate my comments about the two stud RB's. I hope they both end up starting for the rest of the year, but it will be a Caste miracle if it happens. Never give up hope though! Never give up! Never give up! Never give up! [​IMG]

    Air Force RB Chad Hall has 50 carries this year for 317 yards for a 6.3 yard average and 4 TD's. He has also caught 3 passes for 33 yards. He could end up having another good game tonight against CSU. I hope Air Force wins again and can make a bowl game this year.

    Chad Hall had 25 runs for 101 yards tonight in the win over Colorado State. He also had an 11 yard catch. QB Shaun Carney had 18 runs for 100 yards.

    On the other side of the ball, FS Bobby Giannini had a pick as did CB Chris Sutton. Here are pics of Sutton's INT.

    Jared Hawkins was touted by the media this week and what does Bobby Johnson do? He gives him 1 carry in the 4th quarter! What a crock! They would have run a lot more against Georgia if they had started him. The black back who started had an amazing 34 yards on 18 carries! Yeah, he's real superior! [​IMG]

    With all that said, congrats to Vandy for beating #16 Georgia on a Bryant Hahnfeldt FG. He redeems himself for subpar performances the last 2 weeks! [​IMG]

    Wake Forest's Kevin Harris tied all rushers in the win over NC State with 22 for 67 and a TD.

    Duke's Justin Boyle had 9 for 12 and a TD.

    Syracuse's Paul Chiara had 1 carry for 7 yards.

    Navy's Adam Ballard had 6 for 23.

    Army's Mike Viti had 5 for 21.

    Jacob Hester, Dan Burks, and Jayson Bird still have work to do tonight.

    Jacon Hester has 42 yards and 2 TDs and we're only 3 minutes into the second quarter. Hester is making good use of his start tonight. He now has 6 rushing TDs and 2 receiving TDs on the season. [​IMG] I hope Jacob gets 25-30 runs. He also has 2 catches for 19 yards so far.

    Tre Smith had a great block punt recovery and run into the end zone. It was nice! He only had one catch for 8 yards in the rest of the game though, and no carries. [​IMG] Will Herring also had some great plays tonight against Florida.

    Jacob Hester ended up with 13 carries for 44 yards and 2TDs.

    UAB RB Dan Burks had a huge night! 18 carries for 121 yards and a TD. [​IMG]

    Idaho RB Jayson Bird had 22 carries for 56 and 2 TDs and an 8 yard catch.

    admittedly i haven't been seriously following college football for very long, but this year and the future looks promising with close to a dozen teams that are willing to buck trends and let whites play CB and RB. this year's recruiting class is promising as well. plus with freshmen like Harris, Hawkins, and Gerhart already seeing significant playing time we have some things to really look forward to the next few years. am i being too optimistic?

    Hard for coaches to replace Hester

    By SCOTT RABALAIS
    Advocate sportswriter
    Published: Oct 17, 2006

    Before spring practice began, LSU coach Les Miles went to Jacob Hester and told him he would be the Tigers' starting tailback.

    It seemed at the time a temporary assignment, a placeholder until Justin Vincent and Alley Broussard recovered from their knee injuries.

    But as the weeks go by, Hester keeps piling up the starts at tailback. He said LSU coaches have already told him to expect to make his third straight start Saturday when the No. 14-ranked Tigers (5-2) host 1-5 Fresno State in Tiger Stadium (8 p.m., ESPN2).

    It really hit Hester what he was about to do when his name was announced with the other offensive starters before last Saturday's 49-0 win over Kentucky.

    "I was pretty much in awe of getting a chance to start at tailback at LSU," said Hester, a junior listed at 6-0, 228 pounds but actually closer to 5-11, 233. "It's pretty amazing. I never thought coming here I'd be the starting tailback."

    Hester, previously considered primarily a fullback, has made the most of his opportunity. While freshman Charles Scott leads the team in rushing (44 carries, 270 yards, five touchdowns), Hester leads the team in rushing attempts (53 for 227 yards, six touchdowns) and also has 20 receptions for 133 yards and two scores.

    His 6.3 points per game leads all non-kickers in the Southeastern Conference in scoring.

    Hester, who said he runs just under 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash, said he doesn't plan on relinquishing the starting job any time soon.

    "I definitely think I can be the tailback if I keep working hard," he said. "LSU always plays two or three tailbacks â€â€￾ that's our system.

    "If the coaches don't think so I'll play fullback. But I hope I can continue to do well and be the guy."

    Asked what was his proudest moment as a Tiger, Hester first said it was the 2-yard touchdown reception by fellow fullback Shawn Jordan late in the Kentucky game, his first career touch.

    "I almost hurt myself jumping up and down when I heard that," Hester said.

    "We made sure he got the ball after the game."

    Jacob Hester Is the only starting tail back in history To get five carries all in the first half, then play fullback for the rest of the game lead blocking for the fifth string tailback so he racks up better stats Jacob did himself. This is one of the most unusual things I've ever seen. It looks like Jacob might start for the rest of the year but end up second or third on the team in rushing. In every school that has a black tailback uses cup cake opponents to allow there black back to put up monster yards to pad their stats. But Jacob gets fewer carries the worse the opponent is. The media keeps pushing for one of the black backs to start, but LSU's coach seems to know who the best back is but doesn't help him prove it by allowing the backups put up better stats playing against push overs.

    The whole Fullback/Tailback phenomenon only happens with white backs. Could you imagine a black runner not going ape $hit when he gets five carries, much less going all out blocking to allow his backups to run wild late in a blowout.

    Brad Hoover did this for Carolina. He developed instant love handles when they wanted him to play fullback. At least they gave him a year to fatten up though... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    i was watching that LSU game, as well. it is sickening! [​IMG]

    in other news, DraftDaddy has again provided some wonderful insight into the real goings on of the caste system. it's like they read this site. [​IMG]
    and some news on Peyton Hillis... after again showing dominant playmaking ability, Hillis is being praised by some of the more respected local commentators who are lobbying for him to get more touches. but look for the coaching staff to continue to mostly use him as just a road grader.

    in an interesting piece of the sheeple-versus-an unwitting caste victim, i submit as evidence: the case of Vanderbilt's fans vs. tailback Jared Hawkins...

    the latest evidence: in their last game, Vandy's starting black running back, jackson-garrison, carried the ball 18 times for 48 yards, an average of 2.7 yards per.

    Hawkins carried the ball 3 times for 25 yards, an average of 8.3 per. he was also named Offensive Player of the Game.

    for the year, jackson-garrison has 118 carries for 478 yards, for a solid, but unspectacular, 4.1 per carry average. he has 3 TDs and a long run of 43 yards.

    Hawkins has just 24 carries but for 206 yards, and a whopping 8.6 per carry average! [​IMG] he also has 3 TDs and a long of 41 yards.

    it would seem the case for Hawkins, a freshman, is clear. but evidently it is not. [​IMG] he is averaging just 3 carries per game!

    here are a couple of fan threads after Vandy's most recent game against South Carolina: thread 1 thread 2

    thread 1 offers a long look at the delusional ideals that the majority of white fans suffer under.

    thread 2 even suggests that Vandy's head coach thinks the starter is much better than Hakwins despite the numbers!

    this is what we are up against. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks for mentioning Jared Jimmy, my brain is not in gear for some reason and I had forgotten about him. Man, I need some rest. [​IMG]

    I also forgot about Georgia's powerful FB Brannan Southerland, who had 6 carries for 12 yards and a TD plus a 12 yard catch in the win over Mississippi State.
