    Obviously, but that's far from definitive. There are football players with German, Irish, Italian, Polish last names, etc., that are mixed.

    Anyways I looked at pictures and he looks White, wasn't sure seeing him on TV with his helmet on.

    Burrow should have had another td. He is the most accurate college qb I've ever seen in my entire life. I can see what he completes 70% of his passes. Amazing qb and athlete on top of it.

    Last week or so, Clowney's crowning on Wentz was more delibrate, yet nothing. Blacks in sports and crime are not held to account.

    Ohio State DB Shaun Wade was ejected a couple of weeks ago for targeting Trevor Lawrence in the Fiesta Bowl. Wade is black.

    Burrow does have a nice touch on the ball, either firing it or lofting it. He has the complete package, which includes quickness and smarts. He should be the No. 1 pick this year. Hopefully, the Benguls give him a great O-line.

    Trevor will be back next year with the Heisman. What he is 20?

    Guys my Girlfriend is polish, her family moved here a few years ago. She sometimes gets called latina because she is very very tanned and has dark hair. Both her parents are blonde. Eastern europeans often vary strongly in skin tone.

    Despite the presence of the great QB Joe Burrow LSU is among the most caste teams in all of college football right up there with the likes of Florida and Florida State. Heck even Tennessee is a little less caste. LSU doesn't even have a white TE.

    Meanwhile Clemson employed four to five white defenders on every snap last night. To me this was a no brainer on who I favored which is why I am very disappointed in the result. A few observations.

    While I think LSU played better there were two horrible calls. One was when S Tanner Muse fell back and the LSU RB rumbled for another 10-15 more yards. But the replay clearly showed his hand was out of bounds. The second one was of course the bogus offensive interference call that took back a long Clemson TD pass.

    QB Trevor L was lacking a key ingredient in slot WR Hunter Renfrow. For the second game in a row his two big receivers Ross and Higgins had trouble creating separation. They had massive problems with the Ohio State CBs and then last night the LSU CBs. So in Trevor's defense his passing windows last night were squeezed. Trevor was also under a lot of pressure.

    Meanwhile the LSU receivers completely destroyed the Clemson CBs aided and abetted of course by Burrow's amazing precision and field sense. CB AJ Terrell, seen as a first round draft pick was particularly horrific getting sizzled deep time and again.

    I think Clemson should have run the ball a bit more and their vaunted DC couldn't come up with ways to disturb the steam train LSU offense.

    In the second half of the Ohio State game he played The Stud Brothers together in the second half. In this game he had them on the field the entire game. Tanner Muse was one of the few solid Clemson defenders last night which includes LB Skalski who of course was ejected.

    S Nolan Turner was their best defender on the night finishing with a team high 10 tackles. He will be a senior next year and I have him graded as a mid round NFL draft pick for 2021. He will finally get a chance to start every game next season. He is swift and nearly had a pick six in this game.

    Looking ahead Tanner will be playing in the Senior Bowl (or East West Shrine I forget) and the hope is he gets the all important combine invite. What I am hearing is the worst case scenario with this outstanding athlete is he could become a special teams star for years with a chance of becoming a starting hybrid safety down the road. But much like say Troy Apke it is not a slam dunk he gets drafted. For white defensive backs to get drafted it is like pulling teeth. The NFL unfairly treats them like the Plague.

    And Joe Burrow who once again displayed his athleticism and brilliance last night looks to be the number one pick in this draft. Trevor is seen as the number one pick in the 2021 draft.

    I was pulling for Clemson though I thought that the Real U had Burrow and a disciplined D it would be a tough row to hoe. Good observation about missing Renfrow.

    LSU was just too much for Clemson. When Clemson was able to bring pressure, Burrow was swift in escaping blitzing defenders time and time again. Both Lawrence and Burrow are terrific athletes that can throw. Exciting prospects, I've said it before but Burrow reminds me more of ARod than Brady with the way he moves and his arm talent.

    It was excellent to see Clemson and all their white defenders flying around. That ejection on Skalski was BS. He was having himself a game before that call. Another future Pro.

    Interested to see what happens with Muse. I could see him getting the Nathan Gerry treatment and asked to play OLB as a pro.. Let's hope he can generate some buzz in his All Star Game and put up a solid performance at the combine. The man is 6'2 230lbs I'm expecting 4.6 range for his 40.. If he can exceed that, I'd be impressed.

    Didn't get to watch the game last night. Was able to catch a replay of most of it today at an airport bar - mixed bag for me. I do not think Muse/Turner were the reasons Burrow torched the Tigers defense - it was more of the the CBs who were getting abused. I really cannot recall a QB as dominant as Burrow has been this season. There have been plenty of good ones but Burrow running that offense all season is probably the most impressive performance I have ever seen or will see.
