    Hey RockyB...You watching South Dakota State??
    Freshman QB Mark Gronowski 67 yard TD Run! Looks like a RB ...136 yards rushing on 9 carries early 4th Qtr

    WR Jadon Janke 4 TD's last two games; twin brother Jaxon held in check so far 1 catch - 24 yards

    North Dakota State had a nice run; they will bounce back in the Fall...just bad for them to play so many games in a calendar year
    RB's Hunter Lupke led w 57 yards rushing on 12 carries (from Wisconsin) ; Dominic Gonnela(from FL) 10 carries 46 yards

    One to keep an eye on - could easily be a safety at the FBS level:

    Kennesaw State senior LB Bryson Armstrong entered the NCAA transfer portal.
    Armstrong (5'11/205) may not fit the mold of a traditional linebacker based upon his listed dimensions, but don't be fooled: he was one of the best at the FCS level during the 2019 season. Earning second team FCS All-America honors from both the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and STATS, Armstrong finished that season with 95 total tackles (51 solo, 12 for loss), 3.5 sacks, one interception, three passes defensed, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one blocked kick. Also the 2019 Big South Defensive Player of the Year, Armstrong racked up 30 tackles (21 solo, 5.5 for loss), 1.5 sacks and one interception in four games this spring.

    Thanks for the head's up Leonardfan! Will be interesting to see WHERE Armstrong ends up??

    Cooper Kupp Winning the Jerry Rice Freshman of the Year Award in the FCS === Bryson Armstrong Won Freshman Defensive Player of the Year! Dare i compare him to old school Pat Tillman??

    I am just doing some quick look overs at college football rosters for the 2021 season and it looks like Brendan Schooler has been moved back to DB!

    That is great news, the position he should’ve been playing all along. He should’ve been a 4 year starter at safety for Oregon, his true freshman season was the best I can recall for a power 5 white DB (or arguably Nick Anderson in 2020 especially under the circumstances).

    Texas has been a very bad defensive team for years now - I do hope that Schooler becomes a starting safety for the Longhorns this year. Taggart moving him from DB to WR is a pure caste move. Sarkasian does not have a great track record with white athletes either but hopefully he gives Schooler the job based on his freshman year and overall athletic ability.

    In some sad news Sam Ehlinger’s brother - Parker who was a LB for the Longhorns passed away a couple days ago.

    South Dakota State looking good! Jaxon Janke had a TD catch earlier and now The true Freshman QB Mark Gronowski with a TD catch on a trick play!

    *Also good news for Schooler! Very interested to see where Armstrong ends up.

    The Buffalo Bulls hired 37 yr old black man Mo Linguist to succeed Lance Leipold, who is off to Kansas after Les Miles got me-too'd this winter. Buffalo's roster was already quite black, so no changes expected there, although maybe Linguist can go for the full 22-skidoo. Linguist was previously the "co-DC" at Michigan, where he'd been for all of three months. He's known for his "recruiting prowess," which means convincing highly-ranked black players to commit. Don't expect Michigan to get any whiter in the meantime, either, although they may bleed off a few high-upside recruiting targets. It's just another monkey wrench for Jim Harbaugh to have to deal with on the hot seat.

    South Dakota State Vs Sam Houston State for The FCS Championship! Let's go SDSU Jackrabbits! Clear caste favorite.

    Doubt Leipold does anything of note at Kansas, he seems to have adapted well to recruiting affletes from D3 Whitewater to Buffalo. Buffalo with a diversity hire to replace him, classic.

    Makes sense - blown tackles and blown coverage - now that's upside! Goes hand in hand with the lopsided rules making it easier to play offense.

    In all seriousness you would think if players on defense are getting lighter then football would go back to a power running league to exploit the lack of tackling talent so many of these hybrid black athletes posses.

    Pitt will never play a White running back. There's plenty of local talent like Dudek who are always passed up. Or they're treated like Dustin Picciotti from eastern PA, who tore it up in high school. Picciotti was 6' 3" and 235 pounds and was fast and strong as a bull and a powerful runner, reminiscent of Rob Konrad. The kind of running back who's called a freak of nature at the NFL Combine, the kind of running back the NFL used to automatically want as a three-down back. But Pitt turned Picciotti into a fullback, which is also how the so-called recruiting services -- a vital linchpin of the Caste System -- had him listed. Unfortunately he had some concussions and ended up leaving the program.

    Skimmed the article, but it confirms my hypothesis that the boosters/admins blurt out "We want Bamas' results" and then the admin/coaches go out and recruit a team that looks like Alabama and then it all falls apart because they forget the most important part that Alabama probably spends more on babysitting life coaches than most programs. Proving that Saban is a genius and that most of college ball is comprised of donut eating slobs/grifters making a check.

    South Dakota State vs Sam Houston State played today. Sadly Sam Houston barely won.
