    Time for all of the cracka QB's at Clemson to split. This supa-affletic quotaback not only is four stars, but has something that none of the palefaces have, "unlimited upside", and my all-time favorite, "mouth watering potential". This of course makes him the equivalent of a 20-star QB. Move over Tom Brady already! o_O:afro:

    Nothing Phil has said is untrue. Yes a lot of white players get stuck behind black players at FBS schools and the chances of white RB's and WR's playing at FCS and D-II schools are much greater.

    And while I applaud those white skill players from FCS/D-II schools that do manage to make it into the NFL the sample size is still pretty damn small.

    But for me the reason I prefer white skill players attending FBS schools is plain and simple. In the practical world the best way to fight the caste system is EXPOSURE. And really the only way to get proper exposure is to play on national TV for an FBS school. Despite the few who do make it from lower levels even if a ton of white RB's and WR's are starring at these lower level schools nobody knows the difference. Like a tree falling in a remote forest. No one hears (sees) it.

    That said the exposure for FCS schools like teams from the Ivy League is a step up from D-II schools. NSNBC was telecasting a weekly IVY League game last year and I hope they continue that trend this coming season. Also on a more local level I got to watch several Yale games so obviously if the choice was between a player at an FBS school who never sees the field and say a star white WR at Princeton I would prefer the latter.

    But nothing beats a white RB and or WR starting and starring at an FBS school where they receive maximum exposure like Ryan Switzer at NC or CM at Stanford.

    The problem is that too many white RB's and skill players who do go to FBS schools just become bench warmers no matter their talent. Look at Brandon Bourbon. He was stupendously talented, quick, fast, explosive, strong. He goes to Kansas at the same time that a few "highly rated" black RBs show up. He spends four years riding the pine, nobody ever sees him. Then he ends up killing himself. Had he gone FCS he would have played, gotten exposure and might probably still be alive.

    What a racist anti-White pencil-necked asshole. There's no recruits in Nebraska outside of the offensive line and not a single skill position player in the entire state, while Texas is teeming with them. His name isn't given, but he's called "Hymie" or something close to that and the article is by Bruce Feldman. Undoubtedly pure coincidence.

    Pretty sure Nebraska has imported darkness from out of state for many years now and been a shell of it's former self. The struggles of the Cornhuskers have not been due to the limited number of in state white walk ons but by the overhyped black athletes that have not delivered on their supposed athletic supremacy. That dweeb fails to mention just how many black skill position players have been funneled through Nebraska and not produced the supposed desired results.

    From that landof10 article about the Nebraska walk on program:
    "you're going to get those kids to turn down the South Dakota State scholarships" - Jeff Makovicka

    Hmmm, PAY to be a tackling dummy with the slim chance of eventually being of starter at Nebraska, or be a scholarship starter at South Dakota State while getting a free education. Those high school kids should tell Nebraska to f-ck right off. Players should be doing what is best for themselves, not what is best for a university. But knowing how naive Germanics are, those midwestern kids will fall for that nonsense.

    Yep, and ignored White in-state non-OL talent, which also contributed to their mediocrity.

    Not recruited:
    RB Danny Woodhead, NG Harrison Phillips (Neb. offered at OL), LB Nick DeLuca, DL Nathan Bazata (started for Iowa last couple of years), DE Drew Ott (Iowa as well and would probably be in the NFL right now if not for injury).

    And those are just off the top of my head. There are several others over the last decade as well that were not recruited and ended up playing elsewhere.

    Then there’s:
    LB Will Compton, LB Barrett Ruud, QB (Safety in NFL) Scott Frost, QB Eric Crouch, DE Chris Kelsay (Bills).

    Again, just off the top of my head or with very little research.

    Point being, this proves that SI clown is paid just to be an anti-White propagandist. If he really was an objective “analyst” he would’ve known this or done just a bit of research to know it wasn't true.

    Just saw that Alabama got the poly QBs little brother as a recruit at QB. They also got Bear Bryant's great-grandson - Paul Tyson - he has next to no shot at playing for them and my guess is essentially wasted his 4 star status if he sticks with his Alabama commitment.

    Georgia Tailback Prather Hudson should be a player to watch......nice run after the Catch on the screen in 1st Qtr of Spring Game ...Cal's ex-Walk-on Patrick Laird showed what he could do when given the opportunity....Hudson can prove be a dynamic All-Purpose back too! Just needs the opportunity.

    The Patriots style football being a staple for years maybe will sprinkle onto the College scene; + aided by McCaffrey.(Welker effect)

    Nebraska should not have forgotten it's roots. Too unbalanced trying to keep up w Jimmy Johnson blueprint

    I saw some of Prather Hudson as I was checking out some spring games. He looked good but will he have a chance to play? Looked in on Nebraska and Penn State on the Big Ten network too. Kurt Warner's son for Nebraska made a nifty move after a catch and bolted down the sidelines for a long TD. Some Pac 12 too and Washington State RB Max Borghi who also looked good.

    I won't further comment on anything because you see a lot of white players in these spring games only to disappear once the season starts.

    However I have Comcast and they are doing away with the Big Ten network in states that don't have Big Ten teams. Just great. My favorite football conference by far. Sure there are lot of games to watch on TV on Saturdays but the Big Ten is the best from an anti caste perspective so I will miss it. A few years back they did away with a channel that played Big 12 games. Of course the cost of my cable goes up regardless. So I will have a so called sports package that does not include the Big 12, Big 10, SEC or Tennis channels.

    One final note. ND S Drue Tranquill returned to school. I remember a few years back, watching the game live, he tore his damn ACL by jumping for a post TD celebration. Good grief. I think he has suffered two ACL's but he has been a top tackler for them. His draft prospects were murky but this season he has been converted into their starting MLB. He put on a few pounds but looks fit. He has one year to prove himself but this change could open the door for the NFL in 2019. I think he will adapt quickly.

    Here's an article of the top five highlights from Nebraska's Spring game yesterday. #4 (second from the top of the article, is RB Wyatt Mazour's 43-yard TD run). Last year he led the Huskers in rushing yards in the Spring game and came close this year, with fewer carries. In a fair world he'd be the starter but is buried on the depth chart behind the "real" athletes. Good vision, quickness, cutting ability and speed, as the highlight shows.

    Although all of the QBs played well, Martinez performed the best and is probably the best fit for this style of offense. Some good performances by some White defensive players, including MLB Honas, who you'll probably see playing on Sundays in a few years. Some White Redshirt Freshman walk-on "came out of nowhere" during Spring practices at CB and has been making noise there. He was one of the starters for the White (second team) against the Red (first team). The Tight Ends played well too, a big improvement from the last few years. You can see one of them make a nice TD catch on the last highlight in the link I posted here.

    Yeah, I too saw that Comcast cut the Big Ten channel from their offerings...for states that don't have a team in that conference. If you have a decent Internet connection, DirectTVNow carries it. They have a $49.95/month package that includes that channel and most of the other sports channel offerings as well, in addition to the other non-sports channel folly that you'll find on Comcast.
