    All the conference championships are to take place this weekend.

    Oregon and Utah square off tonight - hopefully Oregon comes out on top.

    Ideally Baylor will be Oklahoma, LSU will be UGA with a Heisman performance by Burrow, Wisconsin upsets Ohio St and Clemson handles UVA.

    I'd much rather see Baylor make it then Oklahoma or UGA. Ohio St. will get in win or loss due to caste leaning of the committee. LSU and Clemson should be safe with victories.

    THANK YOU Ximasa! When ABC Showed pictures of "Starting Defense" OF COURSE Brady Breeze was NOT SHOWN! AGGREVATING! Can't have whitey's pic on the screen for Defense! Even though he Started tonight! #25 has been all over the field early in the game! Thankfully not ejected for "Targeting". Chris Fowler totally missed his tackle calling other names ; glad Herbstreit gave him credit!
    .....DB Brady Breeze should be one to watch in 2021 NFL Draft.

    Did they ever show Oregon Starting Offense?? May be too many white's on the O-Line to be doing that!

    Utah TE Brandt Kuithe (only a Soph.) out of Katy TX; (6'-2" 235) could be a smaller version of George Kittle/ Travis Kelcie.
    Kuithe has 29 rec 550 yards 19.0 avg! 6 TD's (long of 69 ) also has 5 carries for 73 yards 14.6 Avg! 3 TD's ...= long of 44 !

    QB Justin Hebert fantastic start so far!

    Miss Utah Electric WR/PR Britian Covey still rehabbing (redshirting) from injury. Hopefully he's 1-00% healthy next year; playing early this season it was clear he was not.

    Kuithe has a curious role.

    Freeze having a good game so far, he still has chance (to get drafted) if he keeps doing so in big games.
    Schooler case is a pity, he shared a brilliant season with Dye and Herbert when they were all freshman.

    Herbert looks good early! Two of Oregon's big time OL Throckmorton and Aiello overlooked so far in terms of Senior Bowl invites. Love seeing Breeze out there! He had a great hit early too.

    Herbert cooled off some in the second half but it is nice to see Utah getting blown out - Polys and blacks all over the o-line -hilarious.

    I haven't liked Oregon for years now. Another white populace area team ( nothing but whites in Portland and Oregon in general) that has loaded up their rosters with non white players. Grudgingly I rooted for them last night although I missed their dynamic TE Jacob Breeland who tore his damn ACL earlier in the year. He was having an All American type of season. The emergence of S Brady Breeze ( see above) is a nice development though.

    Honestly having difficulty evaluating QB Herbert. While Joe Burrow is the class of the 2020 QB class I still am hesitant to place QB Justin Herbert above Shea Patterson, a likely minority opinion. Herman looks the part. No question. At times he looks like Josh Allen and has all the tools and is smoothly athletic for a player his size. He looks like a no brainer. Which is why I have trouble understanding his lapses at times and occasional foot work issues. That said he is either the second or third best QB in the draft and if a team needs a QB they should draft him.

    He is a first rounder and has all the raw tools. It is a wait and see game as to whether he masters the more finesse issues of being a QB. If he does he could be a real star at the NFL level. That said I wouldn't touch Jalen Hurts with a ten foot pole and was never fully convinced about Tua ( good but great?) even before his injury given the fact Alabama QBs have not faired well in the NFL in recent times.

    As for Utah what a sickening team. While I too am happy they lost I am still worried about the most toxic team in the land Oklahoma sneaking in.

    Utah's non white racial outlay is not an anomaly even in lily white areas like Utah. It just rubs me the wrong way when a state as white as Utah puts a product out on the field that has zero racial reflection of the local white populace. It reminds me of high schools that are mostly white yet the stars on the basketball and football teams are mainly all black or non white.

    I went to a gigantic high school but there were no blacks. All white from stem to sternum. Want to know if your high school is all white? If there aren't any blacks on the basketball team? Ha.

    Shadowlight, Oregon’s Wr depth has been a huge question mark all year - the excellent te Breeland filled the void prior to his knee injury. Keep that in mind when evaluating Herbert. The rb had two passes he should of caught in the late third quarter. I feel Herbert is in the same mold of Daniel Jones and Carson Wentz. Josh Allen is a little more bulked up than Jones and Wentz and with better athleticism. I think Herbert’s arm strength is comparable to that of Wentz.

    I do think Patterson suffered some in the Michigan offense. He should of had a lot more freedom to run, had more designed runs called for him and been allowed to improvise more than he did at Michigan. I have a feeling that was due to the system and coaches telling him to play within their system. Michigan’s Wr Corp is one of the most overrated in the country and rarely was any blame assigned to them during the year.

    Good points Leonardfan.

    It will be a different kind of Saturday but at least I won't give myself a headache trying to watch three to four games at once although I prefer that somehow. I also can't imagine anything topping Yale- Harvard in excitement. That was the game of the year. But enjoy the games nonetheless even though a few are way too caste. Oklahoma anyone? Barf bags available in the rear.

    There will be some white wide receivers in action in the Miami of Ohio game as well as the App State- Louisiana Tech affair but I don't think any of them are NFL types.

    The most important one in action today is Cincinnati sophomore WR #12 Alec Pierce. At 6'3" 212 he has prototypical NFL size with speed to match. His stats for the year are 29-534-2 which belie his big play ability but also indicates they rarely think of him. Too early to predict NFL stuff but hopefully he can start making a bigger impression.

    Speaking of NFL potential Ohio State has a nice fleet of white tight ends. I especially like Jeremy Ruckert who is just scratching the surface of his talent.

    I think I can speak for the entire CF clan when I say Clemson is overwhelmingly the favorite here. Leonardfan should get a kick out of this recent crap I read where someone felt QB Justin Fields could get picked over Trevor Lawrence in the 2021 draft. Personally I think any QB could thrive in Ryan Day's offense. Besides that Trevor is a Peyton Manning clone. Nobody is going to pass him up and unlike Peyton, Trevor has some good wheels for such a big player.

    Fields will be another mediocre 1st round quotaback. Ohio state has had a good offensive system since Meyer took over - like shadowlight said - any qb can be productive in that offense. As the college offenses become more widespread in the nfl the defenses will adjust. Ideally the rules committee would decide to undo a lot of their changes that make the game so much more favorable to the offense but that won’t happen because the nfl wants to push quotabacks And the offenses they run as the new normal of the league.

    Lawrence is the best qb prospect since Luck. I can’t compare Lawrence to Peyton. Lawrence embraces the physical side and is a strong leader like Luck was as well as being a superb athlete at the postion. He has all the tools.

    Manning was different - so much of his greatness was due to his preparation and the mental part of the game. He did have the physical tools as well - good arm, strong, solid build but was not as fleet of foot (and he did not have to be).

    Oklahoma handling Baylor so far.

    Nice sack by Baylor's James Lynch! Huge momentum swing if the strip sack stands!

    Appalachian State is destroying Louisiana Lafayette.

    WRThomas Hennigan has 3catches for 38yards. Capping another solid year as a starter

    Watching a Gabbert QB in the MAC championship game. He's not 6.0' and Mizzou didn't even call him may Mizzou eternally rot.

    2 sacks for James Lynch on the day!! 12.5 on the year, just set single season sack record for the Baylor Bears. Should be a hot commodity come draft time..

    Hennigan is up to 4catches for 50yards.

    Yup @wile that's Blaine's little bro, Brett. He's shorter than his bro but has played great as a true Freshman. Good choice by him in choosing Miami Ohio as his school. It's been discussed here before how Mizzou and Kansas ignore their white regional talent. Really is a shame.

    Jack Sorenson (Miami OH) had 8 receptions for 123 yards including a nice 31 yard TD! playing w knee brace (missed 3 games this season)

    Peter LeBlanc (Louisiana-Lafayette) 3 receptions for 118 yards & 2 TD's....Bright future; just a Freshman!
    App. St. WR Thomas Hennigan finished 4 - 50

    DWF message boards last week deemed Ohio State Defense "too many white players too stop Joe Burrow" eventhough it's only 2 (Borland & Werner) ; that's sad!

    Nice some big receiving performances I missed! LeBlanc is a guy I need to learn more about!

    That is sad how Ohio State is relatively white friendly when compared to a Deep South SEC team like LSU.. I kinda miss the days when LSU routinely trotted out quotabacks..

    Excellent interview with Joe Burrow and him talking about how the majority of scouts & teams said he wasn't good enough. Yet he is the favorite for the Heisman Trophy. The
    Anti White Hatred for all of our athletes is disgusting. We have seen it at other positions for decades and now even our best quarterbacks are being ignorred!

    QB Ridder for Cincinnati throws a perfect looong bomb that clanks off of the face mask and hands of his wide-open supa-afflete WR Jackson. It was comical.

    Trevor Lawrence and Joe Burrow should both be in the playoff.

    Joe Burrow's pocket presence is amazing.

    Would love to see Burrow in a revenge game against Ohio State.
