    Below is the state of college football for 2019.

    Out of 130 teams there are roughly 764 white starters or about 5.9 per squad and 26.5% white, which is down by about 67 players total, .5 per team on average, and 2.5% lower compared to 2018

    Only 6% of the teams this year have 11 or more starters, a far cry from the 30% or so teams that had this distinction about a decade ago.

    Air Force, Miami (OH) and Northwestern are the whitest teams, each starting 13 whites (15 for Northwestern if you count the two white / Asian players on their team)

    White athletes per team per conference looks like this:

    Independent 8.5
    Big 10 8.0
    MAC 7.9
    MW 6.7
    Big 12 6.4
    Pac 12 5.7
    AAC 5.1
    CUSA 5.0
    ACC 4.9
    Sun Belt 4.9
    SEC 3.2

    The SEC is the first conference to average under 4 white starters, and they are barely above 3! 9 of the 14 teams are starting 3 or fewer white athletes, with the “clubhouse leader” Arkansas at 7.

    Here are prior year summaries.

    Yes -- many thanks for such an excellent (if depressing) write-up!

    Claimjumper - thank you for this outstanding write up. This goes beyond the anecdotal evidence of the caste system as we have 10+ years of data on most teams now to prove something (i.e. racial discrimination) is going on in the recruiting racket at the highest rates ever. The caste system is working as hard as possible to eliminate white athletes. Meanwhile over the course of the season we will see several of these supposedly evenly matched teams each filled with the magical race go out and plenty of lopsided blow outs will occur.

    And might I say seeing Iowa, Nebraska and Penn State falling in starters so much after last year's bright spots is a bummer.

    Nebraska is improving I think. Scott Frost has shown signs that he won't go full hog caste like he did when he was at UCF.

    Iowa is probably the best team to root for here at CF so don't give up on them.

    I agree Penn State is a big time problem.

    Claimjumper, yes, thank you for the information. I know you're probably trying to be as positive as humanly possible but shouldn't the percentage actually be 4.5% MAJORITY white as there are only 6 teams with more than half starters? Just thought I would make it a little more depressing!
    More reason for me to not watch any college football. I'm thankful that we have enough posters here that can stomach it and keep be updated on the few white players we have!
    I will be at the Wake Forest/UNC game in a couple of weeks to watch Cade Carney and the UNC Freshman QB as my daughter is a student/cheerleader at WF.
