    Great to hear that AboveAverage. Think about it? We have 2 receivers in the top 6 in the nation yet look how few whites get a chance to play receiver compared to black guys. Our guys are discrimnated against at every
    level yet we still have guys that find a way to shine. As the saying goes. The cream shall rise to the top. In a fair sports world we would see our guys constantly put up huge numbers. They are held down by the caste system.

    Yes he is.

    White Hispanic is ok -could be worse

    So depressing to hear about TJ McDaniel and Caleb Chapman missing the rest of the season. They are two very good football players that were on the verge of having a big years. Especially Chapman but that's how it goes. Knowing these kids
    and how much they love the game I think they will bounce back. We have to stay optomistic even in the worst cases.

    Thanks as always for the much needed weekly college stats. We always enjoy reading it.

    Excited for MWC and Big Ten Football next weekend and Pac 12 the week after that. Things are gonna get very interesting. Go Wisconsin and go Washington State to name just a couple teams off the top of my head.

    100%. The caste system is deeply entrenched but the only way we're going to fix it is by white athletes having outstanding performances at NFL and College level, which will inspire younger athletes that they can excel at RB , WR, Safety or Cornerback etc. despite being white. On an individual level all of us should be keeping in good shape and doing our best to fulfill our athletic potential, which will help dispel the 'white man can't jump/sprint' myths on an anecdotal level. For example I'm 5'11 and have been able to dunk since I was 16 and also ran track (10.80 100m and 21.69 200m). I go to different courts around my city and play pick up and show off my dunks, which leaves blacks/asians thinking 'damn this white boy can jump' and other white guys thinking 'if he can do it I should be able to'.

    Great stuff TwentyTwo. And a couple of revealing names emerge above.

    But before that mentioned above stellar defensive performances and we are seeing some similarities between NC State and Arkansas. CB Hudson Clarke who? Good to hear. And Grant Morgan with 19 tackles and 3 TFLs, 1 sack and interception I think returned for a TD. And his pal Bumper Pool I don't think played but fellow LB Hayden Henry chipped in with 8 tackles and 2 TFLs.

    Speaking of LB tandem teams I saw the impressive NC State dynamic LB play yesterday. Both only sophomores. Drake Thomas had 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks and 1 TFL. And future first round stud (6'4" 245) Payton Wilson with 19 tackles and a half a sack and half a TFL Plus two interceptions.. And he doesn't just tackle. He hits with the brute force of a sixteen wheeler. I have notated NC State and will look out for their TV games from here on end. Beats watching caste fests Alabama-Georgia.

    Has Clemson S Nolan Turner done anything that would hurt his according to the (experts) "fringe late round" draft status. No in fact in a fair world his stock would be rising but for a white DB all bets are off. Perfect game by him yesterday in limited play during a blowout. Also a ball hawk as he nabbed another INT. But Wake Forest true freshman safety Nick Anderson has been playing great this season and he shined in their win over Virginia with 9 tackles. So few Power 5 white defensive backs to begin with. Even rarer to see a true freshman.

    Under the radar special? Junior WR Jake Bobo of Duke. They mentioned his batting average of picking up first downs and it was amazing. For the season the tall junior has a 21-250-1 through I think six games.

    NFL TE watch. Miami Will Mallory (6'5" 245) moves like a runaway deer. Special talent is a big play TE with a stat line of 7-134 and a whopping 5 TDs so far this season. He will only get better.

    With the depressing news that WR Caleb Chapman is down and out for the season it is nice to see a freshman WR possibly emerge. Reese Smith of WV (5'10" 186) was a highly rated WR coming out of high school. Hopefully WV integrates him into the offense more now as we move forward. He is a jet. Runs the 40 yard dash in 4.44 seconds. So far he is the only top rated class of 2020 white WR to make any noise.

    Awesome to see Hudson Clark with a Hat trick! Stories like this are needed in our fight!

    Morgan and Wilson seem like some future badass NFL LBs!

    Wilson is an animal..plays with a mean streak too.

    Hudson Clark is probably the biggest caste story of the year - white CB playing in the SEC. I wish people would use players like Clark and C-Mac as jumping off points to start asking the obvious questions.

    Why recruit all over the field smackers like Payton Wilson when you can populate your rosters with touchy feely defenders like the ones in the 50-49 Memphis-UCF powder puff classic?

    CB coach of Arkansas is Sam Carter, a black male.
    I remember some of you mentioned Burkhead, Zenner having 'black' HC when entering the league...

    Clemson played a bunch of back ups in their destruction game against GT. Sophomore LB Kane Patterson #17 looked good. While Clemson seems to be developing a string of white wide receivers ( Grisham, Humphries, Renfrow, and now Spector) don't rule out a safety lineage too. Brother of sophomore LB Jake Venables and son of ballyhooed DC Brent, freshman safety Tyler #12 (5'10" 200) is a special looking talent. He has the speed and the voracity to earn a starting role within a year or two. Tyler looked great in mop up duty.

    Tyler was an all-state defensive back in S.C. He also QB his team to a 12-1 record and was the region offensive player of the year. He's for real.
