    Unless Florida-Georgia floats your boat ( I doubt it) there aren't any meaningful games between the top 5/6 teams this week. Most of the big players have the week off but Clemson will be in action against mighty Wofford on the ACC Network. Good grief call the ambulance units.

    I spoke with Comcast recently and I got the impression that they have little interest in picking up the ACC Network which is an ESPN outlet. I wonder when basketball comes around will people miss out on NC and Duke games? As is Clemson appears to be the only big draw for ACC football these days but it just seems that Comcast and perhaps other big cable companies ( does Cox carry it?) aren't interested in forking out more money to ESPN with their exorbitant asking prices.

    Tonight's college game ( Baylor-West Virginia) holds little interest for me especially now that Baylor's ace LB Clay Johnston is out with an ACL tear. I will drift towards the NFL Cards-49ers match up and peek in on some NBA action.

    Friday Navy plays UCONN and Navy junior safety Evan Fochtman has been tremendous this season. Princeton will be on tap for the ESPNU game but it starts early (6:00 EST). Princeton like Yale and Harvard has some excellent white skill players on offense. The Ivy League is loaded with good to great white wide receivers.

    Hard to accurately place the Ivy League in terms of comparisons with FBS schools but I would guess it is somewhere between low and mid majors. The MAC is a typical mid major but I would argue that most of the white skill players in the Ivy League at WR and RB are MAC level talents to me and since there are plenty of MAC players in the NFL it is yet another sore spot when you consider so many Ivy League wide receivers are not drafted. In other words most of the top tier talent in the Ivy League resides at WR. It is in other areas like depth where they are dropped a notch.

    Michigan plays an early game at Maryland so it will be interesting to see if they can build on the momentum of their destruction of ND last week?

    Like to see Kansas State lay a whooping on caste Kansas which will be on FS1. Can't miss Air Force will be another late afternoon game on CBSSN.

    Northwestern might have QB Hunter Johnson starting and Ole Miss and hopefully QB Plumlee will be on TV at 7:00 EST. Cincinnati plays East Carolina in a game with a few white wide receivers of note.

    Speaking of which UCLA and WR Kyle Philips is at home at 9:00 on the Pac 12 Network.

    Later Utah State and LB Woodward host BYU on ESPN and WR Bailey Gaither of San Jose State play on CBSSN against Boise State.

    Kind of a pause type of week when it comes to the final four and playoff implications but there is enough out there to at least keep me engaged.

    K State should lay the wood to Kansas on Saturday. U of Kansas is one of the most striking examples of caste-think in college football. Here is a prestigious university in a region that has an extremely high football participation rate at the high school level. Yet year after year they are terrible. They don't bother to recruit in their home and neighboring states talent base for some reason, but instead chase black "talent" from Texas, Florida and the south. Nevermind that the vastly majority white HS teams in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa win virtually every state championship. They could be Wisconsin-like with very little recruiting effort. Of course if the coaching staff didn't win big the very first year they would be blown out by the alumni for their "zero star" recruiting classes.

    Just saw Joe Bachie is suspenses for the rest of the season due to a failed drug test related to PEDs. Hopefully it’s just a supplement or something as he has a solid shot at getting drafted in the mid rounds.

    I have the Navy - UCONN game on - Jim Mora is pretty awful as a color commentator.

    If whites want to adopt someone they should use their resources to help a white kid. They should support their own.

    Every other group supports their own. We should too.

    EMU WR Mathew Sexton with a nice 80 yard TD. He finished with a 3-87-1 stat line.

    I’ve been flipping around and keeping eyes on box scores.....
    A few quick notes:

    Carney was hardly used. 10-30 ish
    Dudek, the same...Hardly used in a Yale blowout....I see he ripped a 45 yard TD run late.
    Horvath has been buried for weeks in favor of someone whose first name is King....
    Naming your children King, Mister, Sargent, Sir, etc is the equivalent to flashy rims, ridiculous grills and layers of gold.....
    I have Kansas St vs Kansas recorded but I did notice Trotter off to a good start..

    Enjoying the Montana St game that’s on directv
    Troy Anderson, who has been mentioned here many times, is a man vs boys.
    He starts the game with a 20 yard run, but is a starting linebacker now...
    Lots of TFLs, sacks and disruption all over...
    Their regular running backs are hard working, over achieving, lunch pail types...
    Lane Sumner and Logan Jones....Good players....

    Horvath had a nice catch and run on a screen pass. Plummer was able to outduel Martinez for a Boilermakers win!

    Currently watching Washington vs Utah. Eason looks sharp today. Edge Bowman just crushed Utes for a sack! Former walk-on of course!

    Sweet! Sexton is quietly having himself a nice career at EMU. He's definitely a lean speedster.

    I’ve been watching and it’s probably been the most I’ve watched a college game all year.

    Kansas State has got an offense that more teams should emulate. A dual threat talent in Skylar Thompson at QB. A speedy tailback leading the way in Harry Trotter. An athletic and technically sound top receiver in Dalton Schoen. Thompson and Trotter are from Kansas and Schoen is from right across the border in suburban Kansas City. This is taking advantage of local talent. The Jayhawks on the other hand look like a typical SEC team loaded with “talents” with names like Pooka.

    For Oklahoma State, redshirt junior wideout Dillion Stoner, has 3 catches for 93 yards and 2 touchdowns. It’s midway through the 2nd quarter!

    All it took for him to get a chance was for Oklahoma State's leading WR to tear his ACL to get him involved in the offense! It's too bad Stoner was not a bigger part of the offense earlier in the season. Hopefully he ends the season on a high note.

    We should start occupying these college recruiting / football sites in The power conferences. the big market ones. Like bama, uf, georgia, LSU, osu, Michigan, Florida state, Miami, etc. start accounts saying to the effect of “we need to talk about the elephant in the room.... you have the New England patriots who dominate the nfl at the highest level of football and have done so for a very long time with statistically the most white players And the least non-white players. And also players dominating positions like JJ Watt, Rhineland, harrison Smith, christian McCaffrey, Luke K, and bosa brothers, etc. Ergo, why are we not recruiting more white players like new England does or getting guys like those.” The argument will be about geographics. but if you are a big market team you should be able to cherry pick the best players from anywhere And find value everywhere. and something has to be done about he's recruiting data bases

    Stoner had been battling foot injury himself; sorry to miss his TD live; will check it out!

    Garrett Wallow leading TCU in Tackles like Clock work! Hybrid Safety ; like NFL's Nate Gerry

    Interesting the different philosophies with K-State & Kansas ....almost like Ole Miss snow plow O-Line vs. all Sumo O-Line for Mississippi State

    Yeah Rocky ...Troy Andersen Big Sky Conf. version of Taysom Hill....Some NFL Scouts rate him as a Linebacker

    KSU’s Thompson with another rushing touchdown. His 2nd on 120 yards rushing. Fun guy to watch.

    Washington went for it on a 4th and short - Eason delivered the ball perfectly to the affletic TE who dropped it. Eason looks sharp so far - I will be curious to see if he declares or stays for his senior season. Big time talent.

    It's great to see Nebraska struggle - Frost needs to get back to what made them successful. Their mystery meat quota isn't what everyone hyped him to be - he was getting preseason Heisman and Big Ten Offensive player of the year hype. Start recruiting those big white country athletes!

    Kansas must offer a degree in Turnstile Studies for O-line recruits

    Army WR Camden Harrison scored a 87 yard TD to put him over 100 yards for the game. Couldn’t find video of the TD, I believe it is the longest of the year for a white player.

    Kansas St. has become one of my favorite teams to watch. The combonation of Thompson and Trotter is a joy to watch. The 2 most athletic kids on the field.

    Oregon - USC should be a good night game - great QB matchup - Herbert a 2020 first rounder vs underrated USC freshman QB Kedon Slovis (should start for the next 3 years for the Trojans).

    SMU - Memphis - Another great matchup between two very good white QBs - Brady White of Memphis and Shane Buechele of SMU.

    Joey Magnifico who’s a Memphis TIGHT END returned a kickoff 75 yards for a TD and it’s called back for a block in the back...
