    Someone mentioned on the Kansas State thread that HC Bill Snyder stepped down.

    Just a few weeks ago I alluded to such because his management at the end of the Iowa State game was poor to say the least. He had a great run. His time was up but at least he recognized it. Some of these old washed up coaches leave kicking and screaming.

    My guess is Kansas State remains one of the more white friendly schools as they go forward.

    Hunter Renfrow wins Burlsworth trophy over Laird and some black safety out of Wyoming, as nations top walk on player. Last years winner was Mayfield.
    Also, Isabella is one of three finalists for Biletnikoff award, to be announced on Thursday.

    Louisville named former Appalachian St HC Scott Satterfield to the same position. He can really only go up from where Petrino left them.

    ECU named JMU Head Coach Mike Houston as their new HC. If I recall JMU has been pretty white friendly - they had a big play WR last year, a very good DB (who was ignored by the NFL) and a white QB. Perhaps ECU will begin to whiten up a little too. He has two good WRs and a promising QB in Holton Ahlers at ECU.

    The big news that hit this morning is Ohio State's Urban Meyer is retiring. OC Ryan Day will take over.

    Not often I am impressed with a college HC. Notoriously picky but remember Ryan Day filled in for Meyer early this season and did a great job leading the Buckeyes to three early wins before Meyer too back over.

    Weird but I had mentioned the Kansas State HC needing to retire and all season I have pressed for Ryan Day to take over next year and both things happened. Someone important reading the CF posts? Ha.

    Excellent job by Ohio State. They keep things in flow and in house which is usually better all around for many reasons including recruiting.

    Typically as we all know here at CF when teams make coaching changes they end up with a more caste oriented coach than the previous one. I don't think that is the case here. Nothing is certain on that score but in the three games he acted as HC Day didn't strike me as a caste hound. I generally liked his approach and willingness to give white players a chance on the field.

    Time will tell but at least for now this looks to point Ohio State in the right direction and away from a full scale caste assault. Ohio State is also a very important high profile team.

    I don't think that things can get any worse for Ohio State, so this news is either good, or worse case things stay the same. There is so much white talent in the Ohio region that even a semi caste coach would have to think about loading up big strong white linemen, tight ends, linebackers from the home region plus maybe the radical idea of having a white qb.

    Day was coaching under Chip Kelly in Philadelphia during the "they're racists because half the roster is white" era.

    Our guys did a sweep of the 1st team all PAC-12 linebacker spots with Jordan Kunaszyk, Chase Hansen, and Ben Burr-Kirven claiming the 3. DT Greg Gaines was also first team along with Britain Covey as a returner and Brenden Schooler as a special teamer. Taylor Rapp also for the ones that root for him. Can’t complain about our 3 guys getting the 3 spots but I feel like Colin Schooler deserved it over Kunaszyk.

    Iowa Redshirt Sophomore TE, T.J. Hockenson, wins Mackey Award. He's still undecided if he'll declare for the NFL Draft or not.

    If he does, it would be interesting to see how the NFL "experts" and "analysts" rate him compared to his teammate with more "upside", Fant. Personally, I'm hoping he stays at Iowa for one more year and then declares for the draft next year.

    Congrats to Hockenson!

    I wouldn't mind seeing him stay either - Iowa is the one team I have found myself rooting for consistently year after year (since the Drew Tate era.) Stanley could use a reliable target with Easley graduating. It would be a mutually beneficial decision as Stanley is going to be viewed as one of the top SR QBs and Hockenson is already TE 1. For all the talk Fant got it was Hockenson who stood out in every Iowa game I saw. It was obvious that Fant bought into his own hype and their were rumblings all year about him and his perceived lack of a role in the offense. Fant is the type of player Iowa has done a pretty good job of avoiding so I am happy to see him go and probably be a mid-tier TE who cannot block (like most other black TEs). The early rumblings on the TEs in the 2019 draft class is how "athletic" it is - almost the same script they ran in 2017 (George Kittle has easily emerged as the best TE from that draft class).

    Unfortunate that Isabella didn’t win the Biletnikoff award. Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy won and while he is a talented player, I thought he deserved it the least out of the 3 players. Alabama would’ve been fine without Jeudy but OK State and UMASS would’ve been completely different without Tylan Wallace and Isabella which makes all the difference for me. I usually don’t understand the thinking of the people that vote for these awards, if this award is supposed to go to the most outstanding receiver then that would be Isabella no question about it. Might be a little biased here but I think TTU’s Antoine Wesley even deserved the award above Jeudy and Wallace but not Isabella. Isabella should’ve been the clear winner here which would’ve been EXTREMELY important to his draft status, but we can’t change anything so I’ll end it with saying I’m excited to see how the draft process goes for him and the rest of our guys. I think this could be a good draft for us, I hope I don’t get me hopes too high!

    Anyone remember this guy?.....Illinois player of the year 12-15 years ago....Rushed for 2000 yards as a senior and went to Penn St....I was researching high school running backs and somehow I ran into his name and remembered that he was supposed to be kick ass......
    He moved to fullback, linebacker and eventually transferred away and played tight end....Not sure if fizzled out or got screwed over....I’ll look for more info........Damn shame.
    Let these talented kids run the football!!

    It's total ******** Isabella did not win the Biletnikoff. They gave it to the Alabama guy just like they did when Ingram got the Heisman over Gerhart even though the performances of Isabella and Gerhart were superior. Combination of SEC/Alabama bias and I would argue the racial aspect played role.

    Isabella's production dwarfed that of Jeudy. Look at the common opponent Georgia to see the huge difference in both player performances.

    This would make a great one of those Player A vs B comparisons to show the caste system.

    Player A: 59 receptions, 1,103 receiving yards, 12 TDs in 13 games. 3/24/1 against like-opponent.

    Player B: 102 receptions, 1,698 receiving yards, 13 TDs in 12 games. 15/219/2 against like-opponent.

    A committee of 540 journalists, commentators, broadcasters and former players (see: cucks and racists) believe Player A bad a better season than Player B based on football merits?

    Andy was completely robbed. I bet the casteh0les’ argument was that the ‘Ebony Tide’ played such superior “competition”....like Arkansas State, Louisiana & The Citadel. :rolleyes:

    Even the BSPN awards analyst who was doing predictions on who would win the awards said Isabella should have won (though predicting correctly that he wouldn't).

    FCS quarterfinal on tonight. I’m watching Weber St take on Maine....I’m watching it via DVR a couple hours late........They have a redshirt freshman named Josh Davis who had over 1000 yards rushing this year....I’ve never watched this kid play....One of you may have mentioned him before.....This kid tore up Utah high school football.....But surprise, all the big schools would rather have the leftover Florida and Texas kids than one of those own......Dumb

    RB Sam McPherson led Eastern Washington w 143 yards Rushing on 24 carries ; including 35 yard Game Winning TD w 26 seconds left!

    WR Dallas Freeman (North Dakota St) was robbed of a spectacular diving 51 yard TD...Announcers said it was a catch & asked does incomplete pass still make Top 10 Play?...otherwise his stat line would have been 4 - 100

    Colgate has a solid CB in Tyler Castillo out of Orlando FL

    South Dakota State Jr. LB Christian Rozeboom had 14 Tackles; 3 TFL & Forced Fumble ; looks like he could land on an NFL Roster one day

    Kennesaw St QB Chandler Burks was injured in the game; NFL Scout. com list him as possible Free Agent Tailback in an NFL Camp.

    Army Fullback Andy Davidson had 31 yards rushing on 6 carries; Navy Fullback Anthony Gargiulo 38 rushing on 8 carries

    Yeah Rocky...started taking notice of Weber St RB Josh Davis 2nd Half of the Season..mentioning him in Re-caps

    Alabama has more cupcake games than the media cares to mention. Playing the Citadel is almost criminal as that game is almost like playing a high school all star team.

    This year the schedule was "stronger" as the Tide didn't play a HBCU team which would make the Citadel look like a D1 contender.

    Murray won the Heisman - he's off to the MLB now. A slew of white QBs are now off to the NFL. Haskins (if he stays) and tagaolivalo will probably enter next year as the betting favorites to win the Heisman. If UGA opens up the offense and lets Fromm throw the ball no reason why he won't be in the conversation next year. Kirby Smart could go full caste and give the position to the quotaback. Herbert may or may not return either. Next year at the QB position it will be interesting to see which one of our guys emerges. More questions than answers right now but hopefully we see a new group of white QBs emerge onto the scene.

    Utah St re-hired caste goon Gary Andersen who complained about recruiting standards that did not allow him to get the best "athletes" when he was at Wisconsin and went to Oregon St and decimated that program over the course of 2-3 years. Now he is back at Utah St - I wish nothing but the worst for this caste stooge.

    Perfect example of how the Caste System recycles Caste Stooge Coaches.

    Kansas St hires Chris Klieman - former NDSU coach who took over after Craig Bohl. Bohl has become a huge disappointment and caste stooge at Wyoming. I hope Klieman is more in the Bill Snyder mold and does not sell out. Maybe he could actually recruit some of those kids from the Dakotas who helped him to an amazing winning record 57-6 and three FCS titles thus far. Will he forget his roots? I have always found it interesting that NDSU never seems to get any big name FBS schools to go against them.

    From the outset, it looks like a good hire for the Wildcats. As for Bohls, yeah, what a disappointment. His 2019 recruiting class only has 1 or 2 Whites in it. There's a lot of overlooked White talent in that area, especially in Colorado; and now with CU's new AA hire to go along with the Caste-cucks running CSU and Wyoming, they will be even more overlooked. A great opportunity for other programs, if they can only think outside of the "black" box.
