    I just wanted to personally thank the posters that are doing the college football writeups. If I had more time I would join in. I am either the eternal optimist or very delusional but I like to add players " I think " might get onto a two deep or get playing time. I once mentioned Wisconsin rb/wr Troy Laufenberg who I thought might get some playing time this year. I was going by his high school highlights and the fact he was named Wisconsin's Gatorade player of the year. The sad fact is many white athletes get named player of the year in their respective states and still go unrecruited or have to walk-on to a school of their choice.
    The other problem is because of the anti-white stereotyping/bias unbeleivably good players like rb Alex Grace ( Western Michigan, or rb Trent Grimes ( Central Michigan ) or even cb Justin Tranquill get moved to their respective caste positions. I ws not the first person to find Grace for this site but the kid ran a legit 10.6 100 meters and was an explosive Mccaffrey like rb. So what do the coaches do? Lets move him to outside lb. Most of us had seen Tranquill play corner in one on one drills at an elite football camp. He literally shut everybody down just the way California former walk on corner Dan Fadelli did the same thing. So what does Western Michigan do.Lets ove him to safety and not utilize his cover skills. Just insane. Most people might not remember Grimes but his high school videos were off the charts. Just insanely explosive and elusive. Hey guys lets move him to safety.
    So thanks guys for posting and if their was not such a bias against the white athlete your write ups would be nowhere near depressing especially when some teams are all black on defense with virtually no whites in the 2 deep.

    I swear this was true but last year Grimes of Central Michigan was listed as a safety. Upon further review he has been moved back to rb. This kid is so good he makes former Chippewa Saylor Lavalli look like Gomer Pyle. This kid is that good.

    I'll say thanks to everyone as well, because it can definitely be depressing depending on which teams are being previewed. I sometimes viewed it as something akin to a "labor of love." McCaffrey Dude, it doesn't take as much time as you might think to do a write-up. It has definitely become much easier to do over the past decade+.
