    Samson Evans of Iowa has entered the transfer portal. Hopefully he can land somewhere on his feet.

    Damn was initially pretty happy when Evans ended up at Iowa. Looks like he was buried though, like to see him go FCS route so he can play right away.

    I think of Evans and Slade Bolden as equals....Bolden may have had more stars coming out of high school, but they are both great athletes, that if not for the paint job, would be thought of with higher regard. Both should be running backs and touching the ball 20 times per game. I don’t have a problem with schools going after black athletes that are top notch and have decent grades. If Walter Payton was available and his grades were so so, cool, recruit the kid and rejoice....It’s all of the schools that recruit third tier players with third tier grades over second tier (or top tier) whites.....Kupp and Thielen not getting recruited to top schools, sickening....Top schools making top white athletes switch positions unwarranted, sickening.....All we need is a half dozen schools with boosters that have some nuts stirring the pot a bit....Go after your local stud players....Why recruit third level high schoolers from Florida and pass on the local stud white.....Until the drunk locals care and speak out, it may never happen.....This Rooney rule amendment that is being proposed is dumb....I’ve always been a proud Western Pa guy, but the liberal stance they take makes me want to hurl....

    My guess is the overrated Justin Fields. They have also been pushing a quotaback from North Dakota st.

    Samoan OT Penei Sewell -Oregon is listed @ #1

    QB Justin Fields is Listed @ #4 to the REDSKINS....Guess they already seem to know Dwayne Haskins will be a bust; and a Alex Smith return a miracle after seeing how shredded his leg was from multiple surgeries

    Poly tackle to protect Daniel Jones. Apparently they expect the Giants to have the worst record

    9/32 is a pretty good initial projection for next year's 1st RD. Almost seems too good to be true lol.

    Last week's hero Clay Travis back to being a Caste gimp this week. He of course is a SEC homer especially of the Vols, so today he is back to bragging on the Vols' recruiting another "Star" hero being signed, Ol' Boy Clay took the Blue Pill. Anyway the latest "Star" recruit is a big slow TE looking guy whose highlight is beating another black kid in coverage in their all black HS football game, but he did make the catch so that should be half the stars right there. Prediction time, the Vols will trend up in wins then the TNB will take over and the wheels fall off. I make that prediction knowing the sports booster morons who no doubt told the AD "copy Bama" and they know doubt are trying but probably skipping the most important part of Bama's success a huge support infrastructure that baby sits the charges.

    Yeah Vols DWFs are besides themselves, their recruiting has taken it to the next level. In other words Tennessee might win 8 games again lol.

    Travis is probably peeing all over his self today. Vanderbilt has announced the hiring of a black female to the A.D. job. Candice Lee was hired to lead Vandy's athletic program to new heights. Good luck with that. First black female A.D. in SEC history.

    I sense a movie in the works for Lee!

    49ers hired a lesbian last season and so did Tampa. Looks like they are advancing to the next step. They've pretty much already pillaged White Males from game, now it's time to breakdown the "sexism" in Football.

    Its the SEC the sooner the DWF’s wake up the better. Where that tipping point is at, hell if I know, it should have already happened.

    If it hasnt already been mentioned here Cole Gest is transferring to Akron. The white RB from NMSU is also transferring to New Mexico. Iowa is most likely the place where a talented DL Henifen (sp?) from NI U is transferring.

    Bucky if you get bored google Hayden Copass of tiny Westville, IL. Thats a criminal pick up off a Lineman for Wisconsin without a recruiting war or even a scholarship wasted as one of the top Heavyweight in the country for 2021 is going to wrestle there. Pretty much a 6 foot 5 inch lean 285 LB gymnast with a very aggressive demeanor. Plays for a **** team and was injured last year, I fully expect him to be a big time name if the season plays out.

    ESPN put out an article saying what the financial ramifications would be if college football was scrapped for the year: $4B

    https://www.espn.com/college-sports...l-financial-wreckage-due-coronavirus-pandemic

    it had a handful of useful tidbit with regards to college / athletic finances, but one of the most shocking statistics was this:

    Men's basketball is the only other UGA program that earned more than it spent in 2018-19, with a surplus of about $2.9 million. Seven other non-revenue programs -- women's basketball, equestrian, gymnastics, women's soccer, women's volleyball, and men's and women's swimming -- combined to lose more than $12 million in 2018-19.

    I knew most of those other sports were money pits but wow that’s a lot of money lost to Title IX amd egalitarianism

    @DWF Upside thanks for the heads up regarding Copass. Quite the specimen, you weren't kidding about how well he moves either! Be awesome to him play both sports at Madison, at the very least he'll be a monster on the mat.

    Great minds think alike that is what I predicted 8 wins half versus directional schools. My guess is they trend up in wins, a few of the 85 IQs get together, go unsupervised and provide everyone with epic TNB.

    As for college sports that would make money, I would pay per view a death match between a Corona Karen who wants to shut down everything including football versus a well fed robust Baby Momma who has been told her favorite son lost his scholarship to a program because of Corona Karen playing politics. IMO Democratic party voters are worth something, as long as they fight one another.

    Calls to have Vandy assigned to another conference within a year, shrieks of "racist, racism" within a year and an hour and an epic lesson in that women have absolutely no sense of responsibility. And we will find out the ghosts of the UDC make black people slow, stupid and surly, curse those old dead white ladies who shoveled the money into that august institution of now POZ.

    Looks like there's another great white quarterback coming up in the college ranks. North Carolina's Sam Howell had an excellent year as a freshman starter.
    Keep an eye on this guy!

    Sam Howell is a beast and I don’t want to speak too soon but he should be a really high draft pick in a couple years! For comparison, he arguably had a better true freshman season than Trevor Lawrence did as far as stats go. Howell doesn’t have ideal height at 6’1” but his abilities should override that kind of like Baker Mayfield. Howell had no trouble adjusting to the college game while throwing for 3641 yards and a 38/7 TD:INT ratio. He also added a rushing TD and a receiving TD. Hell, that’s a great season for a 5th year senior! I can’t wait to see the progression he makes in the next few years, definitely a young star with a bright future. He has two 1000 yard receivers returning and one of my personal favorites in Beau Corrales as the #3 guy again this year. I believe Beau Corrales has NFL potential but he’s stuck behind 2 decent black receivers who had good seasons last year. Corrales has amazing size at 6’4” 210lbs and incredible athleticism which has been displayed in some incredible catches he has made and also what made him a star basketball player in high school. He currently has 938 receiving yards and 11 TD’s in his career, with Howells progression we can expect Corrales to have 700+ yards and 8+ TD’s in the next season. My comparison for him would be Tanner Gentry (in college) and Eric Decker, all three are true outside receivers with similar size and have the ability to make freakish catches, all three of them were also high school basketball stars.

    Heflin ends up at Iowa.

    Former Northern Illinois redshirt senior DT Jack Heflin transferred to Iowa as a graduate.

    Heflin (6'4/319) entered the transfer portal on May 13, and it didn't take him long to find a new home. He was one of the best defensive tackles in the MAC last year; posting three sacks, 8.5 tackles for loss and forcing a a pair of fumbles for the Huskies. Heflin was also an analytical darling, posting a PFF grade of 90.1 that was sixth-best among all interior defensive lineman in 2019. He should immediately enter the depth chart for Iowa to begin 2020, and since he leaves NIU with his degree, he's eligible to play right away with one season of eligibility remaining. A very nice get for a team that has been hit hard lately by the transfer portal.

    Happy to see Heflin end up at a high profile program! He should fit in well in the Big Ten.

    Just wanted to make this post to honor and remember 5 WR’s who have used all their eligibility up and we won’t likely see anymore from. These guys were all discussed at length over the last few years so I wanted to make one final post to conclude their careers. I picked these guys because they all had 100+ catches and 1100+ yards in their careers. Best of luck to these guys in the future!

    Austin Maloney (5’11” 190lbs) FIU
    Maloney finished his career at FIU with 20+ catches all four seasons and was a full-time starter the last two years. Austin Maloney was a true deep threat, I would’ve loved to see him in the NFL.
    104-1738-9 receiving
    24-463 on kick returns


    Mathew Sexton (5’11” 175lbs) Eastern Michigan
    There was some NFL talk about Sexton but as of now nothing has happened. He was well liked here and was also a four year contributer like Maloney. He was also a fantastic special teams player as a gunner, he had 26 special teams tackles in his career. He even had a long blocked punt for a TD in 2019.
    100-1335-9 receiving
    21-353 on kick returns

    Riley Miller (6’1” 200lbs) Ball State
    Miller was a well rounded wide receiver who could always be counted on for the Ball State offense. He was a 3 year starter who also returned punts a little bit too.
    124-1790-14 receiving

    Michael Lawrence (5’10” 187lbs) North Texas
    I believe Lawrence could’ve had an NFL shot if his junior and senior seasons matched or exceeded his sophomore production. He was a 3 year starter who excelled out of the slot for a solid UNT offense. He was the most productive of these 5 guys in terms of yards and catches.
    143-1929-9 receiving

    Hutch White (6’1” 195lbs) Texas State
    White saved his best season for his last when he recorded 67 catches for 618 yards and 2 TD’s. He never had a real NFL shot but he was a steady receiver for Texas State for 3 seasons.
    116-1112-4 receiving
    514 total return yards
