    Isn’t that nice... a league that is 75% black, feels the need to provide an additional combine workout strictly for black athletes.... for all the normies and lurkers that still don’t get it, not sure what other evidence you need to see.

    Exactly, if people don’t see the blatant racism and “black power” dynamic that has created the sports caste system, you just might be a liberal. No amount of evidence or facts can persuade you to abandon your position of sports being about “playing the best players.”

    Riley Moss returning to Iowa for 2022. My guess is it's due to his injury - he won't be back to full health for the pre-draft process. Hopefully he thinks before doing a stupid celebration and injuring himself next year.

    Ugh this sucks. I wanted to see Moss declare. I don’t see an upside to him returning unless he plays out of his mind.

    with the Riley Moss news, it is possible that Iowa could start two White cornerbacks next season, as true freshman Cooper DeJean backed up Moss this season and got increasing playing time as the season progressed.

    hopefully this decision will work out well for Moss (and Iowa!), because as we know the deck is certainly stacked against White defensive backs.

    Great response that needs to be archived! Most of the white people in this country have no idea that blacks only make up 13% of the population.

    13% does not give 50%. Only half of the 13% is doing the 50% (the men), so is it 6.5% doing 50%? No, you have to take children and the elderly out of the equation. Probably something like like 3% doing 50%.

    Well If you want to go all nerd on me that's fine lol. Just kidding. Either way. 3-5% gives you 50!

    Many "children" "teen youths" are doing the Killing.

    The NFL is doing this because of the strong backlash they received after the 2021 draft for not selecting any players from Historically Black Colleges. If I were to guess, this is just another "fake crisis", probably originating from the Satanic Sports Temple based in Bristol, Connecticut -- ESPN. They are trying to keep up the phony narrative that American sports leagues are Ray-ciss against blacks. Also, as LeonardFan sagely suggested, this is just another way to ramp up anti-white vitriol, which is ESPN's specialty?

    Real question is why are the SWAC Schools getting virtually nothing when it comes to football talent? Last month I posted about this crazy scam being run in the city of Nashville, where the NHL's Predators are frittering away hundreds' of thousands trying to figure out if D-1 Hockey could work at HBCU's schools?

    I looked at reasons it (hockey) could never work. A lot of the same reason's likely apply to football. HBCU probably have trouble recruiting for a variety of reasons -- Lack of white women at HBCU schools for the "proud black men"...lack of DWF's to adore the affletes silly and often criminal antics....lack of illegal money paid to the afflete..ect!!!

    Has anybody seen what the quality of play is like in SWAC these days? The linemen look like fatsos and everybody else looks like a high school player build wise. The top 100 player Sanders got to commit to Jackson St. was essentially bribed to go there and there is no huge donor to get more than a one off guy like this. Even if they had an idiot like Jay Z adopting a team he would need a foil to make the league even watchable as his team could roll to undefeated records every year.

    SWAC football is thoroughly unwatchable, less their marching band even then it looks like a gentleman's club act that I have seen before in ghetto areas...

    Great points, also don't forget the tiny crowds they attract. I vaguely remember seeing (last month) Jackson State signed a Top 100 recruit, but the media suddenly claims Deion Sanders landed the #1 recruit in the nation. Find that hard to believe, but even if they did, it could be like the Toronto Argos signing Rocket Ismail (presumptive NFL #1 overall pick) to help solidify the CFL and nothing really changed. In time it was seen Ismail was wildly overrated and CFL gained very little benefit having him.

    Also, I highly commend Travis Hunter for going to an all-black school. Nothing wrong with that. I really hope more black athletes do it. According to the N.Y. Slimes, however, it seems Hunter had some serious financial incentives to attend JSU, so this might not be as pure as finally finding a black recruit with some legit "black pride".

    Finally, I wonder what Sanders and the others endgame is here? Get more HBCU players drafted? Dominate at the F.C.S. level? Perhaps eventually compete with Alabama and other SEC schools some day?

    Kyle Philips has declared for the draft, one of the more interesting WR’s in the draft. I’d say he has a decent shot at being drafted, especially if he gets a combine invite.

    His teammate TE Greg Dulcich also declared for the draft.

    I've enjoyed watch quite a few UCLA Games with these two lighting it up on offense. Good luck to both of them and I really hope they can either be drafted in the later rounds or
    at the least sign as free agent signees.

    I hope Philips ends up being a riser. His playmaking ability was very evident this past year.

    So far Max Borghi only has an invite to the NFLPA bowl...which is probably the least regarded of the major bowl games. Hopefully he gets a combine invite.

    I thought I read he did get a combine invite already?

    WR Slade Bolden declares for the draft, should’ve stayed in my opinion.

    We’ll have a few white WR’s in this draft, I wonder how many will be drafted? Off the top of my head Alec Pierce, Kyle Phillips, Britain Covey, Jack Sorensen, Slade Bolden, Tanner Conner, Thomas Hennigan, Tyler Snead, Brandon Bowling, and Jackson Anthrop.

    I think it will be a success if we have 3 drafted, Alec Pierce is a lock.

    I think Jack Sorensen is a lock too. I hope nfl teams look at Phillips and Covey as they have proven they can play for a long time now. Good track record to look back on. I really
    hope all of these guys get a serious look. I hate seeing so many of our guys have to go the hard way to make the NFL. It's nice to see alot of white faces at the wide receiver position!

    Pierce, Phillips, Covey, Sorensen, Bolden, Snead and Conner SHOULD all be drafted IMO. Their college productivity and measurables will stand up too and in many cases outshine their black counterparts. Hennigan, Bowling and Anthrop should all be priority UDFAs and make an impact during training camp/preseason.

    Bolden declaring for the draft is somewhat odd. I know Alabama will be losing some other WRs to the NFL so he may have been in line to get more touches next year as a senior. Of course he may realize that Saban might decide to pull back on Bolden's reps next season and just have an afflete take away his snaps. Maybe Bolden knows something we don't? Perhaps he received a favorable draft ranking or maybe Mac Jones put in a good word with the Pats?

    The deadline to declare for the draft is on Jan 17th so we have more 2 days before the draft picture becomes clear. My guess is another record number of mediocre black college players will declare along with all the 4th/5th/6th year players who stuck around on campus. The pessimistic optimistic outlook is that White players at least hit the baseline percentage for being drafted this year. So far the Senior Bowl is pretty much status quo in terms of White players being invited and the number of White players who should be garnering more attention and respect during the predraft circuit are of course being overlooked.

    Once all of the underclassmen declarations come in I'll put together my draft watchlist for our players.
