I hate to be this guy, I still root for Schrader, but he looks mixed with at least Hispanic to me. None of his family looks Angelo. Maybe they’re just Italians or something…

I LOVE Schrader, I’ve seen his interviews, I love who he is and how he plays. He has an interview on how much he loves his family and how carrying the name Schrader is an honor, and I’d run through a brick wall for the guy. Just a comment.
I have a pic of his dad that I couldn’t upload, along with a video of Cody talking about how important he’s been in his life....100% white guy.
Cody looks whiter when he was younger without the beard and tats.
Mom may be a Meddy like my wife..(Mediterranean...Italian, Greek, etc),
He’s one of my favorites, for sure.

Steele with three touchdowns early. Garbers looks decent.
I’m a bit behind, it’s all recorded.
I’ll watch Skat tomorrow morning.....

Agreed he is white. We have to remember whites have shades of tan, depending on region. He is a guy who is easy to root for and has been playing VERY well this season. With several weeks to go, I think he reaches 1,000 on the year for sure.

It's so nice to see Chip Kelly finally woke up and moved on from freshman qb Dante Moore. He has been horrible all year and they are
very lucky they didn't lose even more games. Tonight we could see the next up & coming UCLA QB. Junion Ethan Garbers is having
a fine game. He is 18 of 24 for almost 200 yards and 1 td so far. He also has 57 yards rushing mid 3rd quarter so far! One to watch
going forward!

Carson Steel up to 600 yards rushing and 6 TDs. He’s averaging the same yards per carry as he did in his epic last season for Ball State.

I don't think Klubnik is the issue with Clemson. They are having a down year across the board, Klubnik is still a much more effective player than Uigalalie was. Klubnik has not even started a full season in college and is a true sophomore. He will get better.

It was nice to see Washington struggle mightily against a 1-5 Arizona St team and a little of the shine from that turd Penix wore off. He's a system QB (a label never given to black QBs). Additionally seeing the "generational" quota from USC once again fail to deliver against a good defense is an equally enjoyable outcome.

UNC had the choke of the week. I don't have any vested interest in the team outside of Drake Maye but losing to a 1-5 UVA team is unacceptable and in a week where the two media picked black QB Heisman favorites both faltered Maye could have elevated his stock in the Heisman conversation.

The call back on Cooper DeJean's fair catch was bogus as well. If there was a fair catch why didn't the ref blow the play dead once he received the ball? DeJean's reaction said it all. In a now wide open Heisman race the officiating crew took away a "Heisman Moment" from DeJean. I guess we can't have a White guy making plays like that to disturb the order of the caste system.

Michigan looked dominant again, McCarthy put up some bigger numbers this week as well. He is now the Vegas favorite for the Heisman.

What's happening with Shipley ?
Nothing wrong with Will Shipley. The Clemson OL was beaten by the better Miami DL and Miami rightfully stacked the box with 8-9 daring Clemson to throw. There was no room for Shipley or for that matter Mafah to run who is a good RB in his own right. He averaged less yards per carry than Shipley. To me it comes down to play calling and who's actually calling them. Is it Riley or Swinney? Some are starting to believe Riley's hands are tied and that Swinney is actually calling the plays. Klubnik is not TLAW just yet and he may never be, but the fact that they don't have the WR corps coupled with the OL getting beat, it makes it easy to key on Shipley/Mafah.
Klubnik was running for his life all night and still threw for over 300 yards and 2 TD's.
The defense let Miami run the ball in the 4th quarter and scored 10 unanswered points.
Clemson has alot to change in the next year or two to get back a bowl championship contenders if ever they do. Remember with success other programs start coming after your talent. Brent Venables, the heart and soul of the coaching staff is gone to Oklahoma and the former OC, Tony Elliott is at Virgina. Clemson apparently has not found suitable replacements just yet or it may just have to take time to rebuild.
Anyway, Dabo Swinney is a good man and I feel bad for him as many of the Clemson fan base are turning on him and Klubnik. Calling Klubnik an idiot. Some Clemson fans are acting like a bunch of spoiled rotten children.
Swinney is a man of character and does things the right way. I've known him personally when he was recruiting my son. They, the fans, need to be thankful they have him and become more patient.

Shipley, I'm afraid has played his way to the bench. He has turned the ball over at the worst times and has been criticizing his teammates on the sidelines. He is not well respected among his teammates. I think he will transfer after this year.

Was hoping there was a reason.
No channels over here have college football, so the box score and these college threads are all I have to follow.

Thanks for the the depth of analysis.

Surely if they are competitors they will respond. But maybe they don't want a white running back stepping over his mark.

Thankfully for Shipley he was a highly ranked recruit so he should go pro and get the “elite recruit bump”. If he gets a 2-3 round grade he needs to go. Not sure what’s going on with Dabo’s program but he needs to evaluate everything after this year and it’s clear Shipley and Spiller don’t see eye to eye. I’m glad he at least pushed back against Spiller and does t just go along with it. He’s plenty talented enough to be a great back in the league so he needs to go bc another year of this and his stock will be way down

Borghi’s momentum was lost after each year he played. There does seem to be some similarities with Borghi and Shipley. Shipley was recruited in the east, Borghi in the west. There is a bit of difference there to Shipley’s advantage...Ship has the rest of the season to get back on track.....I love his fire and I think most of his teammates respect him for that.

This is good to see and proving to the haters & skeptics that he can play in the bigger divisions of college football.

Cody Schrader is up to 807 yards on the season and up to 9th in the NCAA in Rushing Yards!

It great to have 2 White running backs dominating on top 25 teams. Makes up for the disappointing year Shipley and Clemson are having.
