    Wow definitely big news with Leach heading down to SEC Country. What kind of offense does Wazzou go with now?!

    Just noticed Safety Ty DeArman is transferring away from Oklahoma.. What a waste for him to have committed there. Glad he's getting out.
    Former BC Safety Evan Stewart transferred to Rhode Island.

    It funny you said that. On Max Borghi's Twitter Account he said that very same thing. He is excited to run the ball more. He might lead the pac 12 in rushing next year
    if the O-Line is better and they have some talent around him.

    Great news for Borghi, as a traditional offense will showcase his skillset.
    This is definitely going to come off as a schzitzo or trollish response, but did anyone else have a dream involving Mike Leach last night? Im totally serious, the timing of this is very strange and Im not in the habit of Mike Leach dreams.

    Leach’s jump into the SEC probably won’t do much to improve Miss St. There may be a slight bump but I really cannot see him deviating too much. His Washington st teams were pretty caste when looking at the geography - lots of polys littered the roster. My guess is he will pretty much recruit what the geography offers him in the SEC.

    I do hope to see Borghi put up great numbers next season though - it will be interesting to see who they replace Leach with.

    Jurkovec goes to BC, hopefully he can play next season. Glad to see white qbs seek out opportunities to start instead of sit on the bench.

    There's still plenty of great White athletes in the South, they're just lucky to get a backup role at an FCS college. I looked up some of the guys I followed when I lived in Louisiana. David Seeman who was on the same team as Joe McKnight, and a better runner, 5'10 almost 200 pounds, running a 4.5, state champion MVP. He wound up playing for the Belhaven Blazers, a d3 school in Mississippi. Another one with similar size and measurables became a backup Linebacker for McNeese St.

    I'm positive you could field a pretty competitive team if you went outside of the same talent pool every big SEC school has already combed through thoroughly. There's lots of "hidden" gems.

    Rolovich throws the ball a ton - a very similar scheme to Leach so It’s not looking good for Borghi to become a 20 carry per game rb. My guess is Rolovich will increase the poly pipeline to Washington state as well. A bad hire from our perspective.

    Clemson QB Chase Brice to transfer out. Another QB worth following - he played well when call upon and will hopefully land a starting job.

    Did anyone watch the Shrine game Saturday???
    I taped it and planned to watch, but it seemed like a snoozer....
    If Carney or an FCS running back was invited, I would have for sure.....

    I struggled through most of it and nearly every time I watch these all star games I come away disappointed. WR Chris Finke was barely there and it looks like the NFL has made up their mind on him which is get lost. Small school WR Mason Kinsey had a nifty 26 yard punt return and might be the only long shot white wide out who has any chance of getting drafted. They kept wondering if he would get invited to the Georgia pro day. They said that would raise his profile. How about the Combine? They stick their necks out on small school black wide receivers a lot but need I go on?

    Don't waste your time is my advice. That said I am planning to watch the Senior Bowl this Saturday and odds are I will be dulled to death. Will I ever learn?

    Shadowlight/Rockybleier,

    I did not watch the Shrine Game and won't watch the Senior Bowl. The Shrine Game had a decent number of white athletes at caste positions (DL, LB, WR, DB) but the Senior Bowl which serves as the secondary filter to the combine in excluding white athletes during the draft process looks to be black as ever. Once the weigh-ins occur I will give a run down of the number of white athletes invited but I wouldn't waste much time watching the Senior Bowl - follow the practices/watch practice clips as they become available and if you can bear it read through some of the draft sites and forums - it's interesting to see how different people see the same player. It's a built in hype machine for future black draft busts. I do not believe Cade Carney had an invite to any sort of post season all star game - he was a 1ooo yard rusher in the ACC and has over 2000 career rushing yards in his career - it just goes to show how our guys can get passed over and no one even makes any mention of it.

    I've said it before, the white guys are "good college players" to the DWF's and draftniks. You see, when a black player's name is called, he, by virtue of his mouth-watering upside, instantaneously is imbued with "pro football skilz". A white player does not possess this magical ability granted only to melanin-enhanced players. It sounds ridiculous, but it is true to a great extent.

    Yup nice list 22! Add Miami DE Scott Patchan as a Grad transfer. I'd like to see him end up at a Big Ten School.

    Noticed former UW LB Griffin Grady has decided to return to football after a year off. Initially was excited to see where he ends up. A quick glance at his Twitter showed he's a Leftist and supports Andrew Yang for 2020 LOL. Whatever floats his boat I guess. Still will cheer for him as a ball player.

    Indiana QB Peyton Ramsey transferring out - like this move as the Indiana head coach has a quotaback pet he is going gift the job to next season again. Former 4 star QB Jack Tuttle who transferred over last year from Utah will need to be just about perfect to have any chance of supplanting the quotaback.

    Ramsey was a very good QB for Indiana - I hope he uses his head and lands somewhere he will be used.

    Adding onto Bucky's Miami update - The former Houston QB who quit on his team last year after 4 games to abuse the redshirt rule has transferred to Miami. Tate Martell made quite possibly a career ending decision by transferring to Miami last year.

    This might be a better fit in the "We are Living in a Cartoon" thread. Grand Valley State recently hired Morris Berger to be the offensive coordinator. He did a Q & A interview with the school newspaper where he was asked to name "any three people in history to have dinner with, excluding football figures". His answer got him suspended and he is under an investigation! Among the three he named were John F Kennedy and Christopher Columbus (an investigation will likely be forthcoming for this last as well). Who did he name that must not be named? Why Hitler, of course. Here is what he said, perfectly reasonable:

    “This is probably not going to get a good review, but I’m going to say Adolf Hitler,” Berger replied. “It was obviously very sad and he had bad motives, but the way he was able to lead was second-to-none. How he rallied a group and a following, I want to know how he did that. Bad intentions of course, but you can’t deny he wasn’t a great leader."

    Here is one of the article links: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/01/27/grand-valley-coach-hitler/

    He’s arguably the most well known historical figure in the world right now other than Jesus Christ and Mohammed. Why wouldn’t you want to talk to him for a few hours in this hypothetical dinner scenario? Even if you thought he was the evil monster he’s portrayed to be, wouldn’t you want to “study” him in order to combat his ideology in the current year?

    Leftists really hate free speech, free association and free thought. They only advocate for these ideas when they are out of power (think 1960s) so they can gain it and snuff out their adversaries.

    Those are some big time names! The Costello decision is very intriguing. I think their freshman QB is very good and a dynamic athlete but Leach prefers pocket passers. For all of the criticism Leach gets he does certainly prefer white QBs - Costello in this offense will be a great story line for the 2020 season. Brice to Duke is also a very good decision as he should win the starting job. Two QBs who made very good decisions for themselves.

    Agreed @Leonardfan ! Finally some sound decisions by Transfer players. Costello will have a White WR to throw to in The SEC if I'm not mistaken?

    Brice choosing to get a year with David Cutcliffe could really pay dividends for him down the line.

    Thanks for the info. I like the fact Draper won't have to sit out and will have two full seasons to get a chance to shine for Arkansas.He was listed as a sophomore this past season so an unusual situation but on the surface looks like a good move away from a toxic caste program. Oklahoma has a white dual threat QB coming in but he is not seen as a super high prospect. They did get a 2021 commit from a highly rated white DE but overall this is a terrible program for white skill players.
