    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.

    Another update on Nebraska. Apparently their Inside Linebacker's Coach is noneother than Barrett Ruud! Former Nebraska MLB and NFL player. He will also be in charge of recruiting his home state, I'll take that as another positive sign for Cornhusker Nation.

    Some good news:

    Chris Balas of The Wolverine reports that Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson will be ruled eligible to play by the NCAA in 2018.

    The report indicates that Patterson could be ruled eligible as soon as Friday. The former Ole Miss quarterback transferred to Michigan after the NCAA sanctions against the school, and he was appealing for a chance to play immediately because he was misled by former coach Hugh Freeze about the severity of the sanctions. It's huge news for the Wolverines, as Patterson is considered to be among the best quarterback prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft class, and flashes big-time ability in his time with Mississippi. It appears Jim Harbaugh has his answer at QB for 2018.

    Texas Tech update. Speedy 2018 recruit WR Sterling Galban tore his ACL. This kind of news always puts me in a bad frame of mind. Brutal. Same thing happened to speedster Hastings of Auburn.

    Worth noting though during the Spring game Freshman walk on track star WR Dalton Rigdon hauled in a 53 yard TD. He is 5'11 175 but has serious athletic ability including raw speed. I believe he is signed up for their track team too. Hopefully he gets a chance to play this season. #86 so keep an eye out for him. Dynamite athlete.

    Also I believe Jr. Justus Parker #31 who was terrific during the back half of last season ( sound familiar Troy Apke fans) is listed as a starting CB. These things aren't in stone and perhaps member Red Raider can verify things but just another promising development from a team that has been too caste friendly recently. Perhaps things may swing around again.

    Yep shadowlight I’ll elaborate on everything you said and give my full TTU take for this upcoming season.

    Sterling Galban tearing his ACL is pretty unfortunate although I expected him to redshirt this season anyways. He is well respected by the coaches around here and I expect him to see playing time in 2019.

    As far as Dalton Rigdon I expect him to play this season, Kingsbury isn’t shy about letting white players play and although he is a small walk on receiver he is extremely fast and is a member of the track team. He looked good all throughout spring while working in Dylan Cantrell’s old position. He likely won’t start but I expect him to probably be on the 2 deep. Another receiver to look out for is Zach Austin, he’s a 6th year senior I believe and he had over 20 catches in 2015 as a slot but had the last 2 seasons wiped out by injury. Hopefully he can contribute in his last season at TTU. Also another walk on Brandt Schilling got a lot of playing time during the spring and made some plays playing on the outside as well. He had over 2000 yards rushing his senior year.

    And Justus Parker is the next white star DB. He was 2nd team Big 12 last year in his first season after redshirting, the guy always makes plays and had a few pick six’s during spring as well. He has fantastic size at 6’0” 210lbs and he still has 2 seasons left. I’m excited to see him as a full time starter these next few seasons. The depth chart lists him as a CB but he mainly plays a nickel/rover position and that’s where he makes all his plays from. He was also the other kick returner along side Keke Coutee last year, with Coutee off to the NFL he could be the full time kick returner this year.

    Other TTU players to watch are DE Eli Howard and EDGE Tony Jones. Howard was fantastic last year and I expect a huge season out of him this year (think Mat Boesen) he has great size at 6’4” 270 and should be on NFL radars after this year. Tony Jones had a good season last year but seemed to disappear at times, I’m not sure what his role will be this year or how much he will play but hopefully he can continue making plays like last season.

    This is as good as time as any to reflect for a moment. At times I figure some of you have thought about who is reading caste football posts? Perhaps fans and or even some of the young white athletes that we discuss and promote at this site.

    But now I wonder if scouts are sneaking a peek. Whether they do or not caste football IS the BEST clearinghouse of information on white athletes. Plus a useful tool in scouting. This site acts at times as a full scale scouting depot with gallons of important information on players, especially up and coming stars. Naturally here at caste we pretty much exclusively focus on white athletes but hell someone has to do it right?

    Now Red Raider, nice job above by the way, you may not recall but I looked it up and back on September 9 2017 in the college football defensive backs thread you posed a question about Troy Apke. I was only happy to reply having prior knowledge to his HS history as a swift WR. That "conversation" might have been the first time Apke's name came up on this site.

    At the end I mentioned his "ranginess." Which by the way might have been the first time a media outlet, which caste football is part of, actually suggested he had some athletic talent. Before that the general media take on him was just a faceless "white" senior filling up space until the next so called great black DB comes along. I would name drop him a few more times during the season and he became very visible with his play late in the season. Against Ohio State he was incredible. By the end of the season I mentioned him again in my Big Ten wrap up. He did stand out and like on other occasions with white players I think many here were dismayed that Apke was being ignored by major media and NFL scouts. Even by the end of the season he was being ignored perhaps partially because he wasn't on their "radars." But not here at caste.

    To make a long story short he had to carefully thread his way through a narrow passage and at a time when white DBs are being eliminated in an aggressive manner Apke was able to get invited to the Combine as the lone white DB. The rest is history.

    So Red Raider here we are a half year plus later and we are discussing another potential star DB in Justus Parker. I could be mistaken but I think you were the first person to mention his name here at caste and like you I thought he was exceptional towards the end of the season . So absolutely a DB to keep an eye on here at caste scouting services known to those "in the know" as the best in the business. Or something like that. Not every white player is great but I will, like many others here, try my hardest to make sure the deserving white players get some recognition and applause. And that I think is what makes caste football essential in this day and age where too often potentially great white players are thrown into a ditch.

    Walk on fullback Alexander Horvath of Purdue had a good spring game as the affletes were injured or sat out and he was the main runningback, doing well, maybe injecting himself into the conversation for next season.

    Urban Meyer is a hack. Burrow was hands down better than Haskins. Luckily Burrow played his cards right and has two years of immediate eligibility. As we saw with JT Barret - this next afflete quotaback wont have any nfl future. Ohio states love for quotabacks goes all the way back to the Jim Tressel days so it’s no surprise to see them trotting out a quotaback again. On the bright side in the Big Ten OSU has one of the worst starting QBs - Patterson, McSorely, Stanley, Lewerke, Hornibrook, Thorson are all much better qbs.

    Great post!

    I don't know if any scouts read this board but they would be smart if they did. They could uncover some gem late in the draft based on information acquired here. That would be good for their career.
