    Blankenship has 130+ yards rushing for Ohio with 10 mins left in the 4th quarter.

    Doeren is ruining any chance Jordan Lynch had to be considered for Heisman votes. In what would be their easiest game of the year, Doeren is using three different quarterbacks against Eastern Michigan. Lynch could easily go over 200 yards rushing in the game, which would put him in striking distance for 2,000 on the season. But, splitting snaps like this, he's not going to have much in the way of statistical output in this game.

    Burkhead has come into the game against Iowa in the 2nd half, and has looked really good so far. The announcers have been praising him the whole time he's been in, saying how athletic he is, how different Nebraska's offense is when he's in the game, how serious of a Heisman candidate he would've been if he wasn't hurt, and what a bright NFL future he has. Burkhead has had some great runs today.

    Oh my gosh....the announcers for the Iowa/Nebraska game are going to have to be sent off to reeducation camp. Referring to Rex Burkhead: "will have a spectacular NFL career", "very athlectic", after catching a pass and making a move "that's why I think he will have a wonderful NFL career, he can do so many things", "as good as Abdullah has been while Burkhead was hurt you can see how the Nebraska running game is just better with Burkhead in the lineup", "Burkhead would have been a serious Heisman candidate had he not been hurt"........unbelievable stuff.

    Is there any team that could possibly draft him that would end him up in a Leonard/Hester/Gerhart situation? I wouldnt be surprised if the Vikings got him and got rid of Toby.

    I could see the Jaguars drafting him. Maurice Jones Drew is one of the top backs in the league, came into the season after holding out for a big contract, didn't get it. He has been injured the past few weeks, and they expect a few more. His contract doesn't end until after next season. By drafting Rex they could be giving Jones-Drew motivation to perform at a top level and not complain about the salary. His current backup, well right now the starter, is averaging under 3 ypc. Since Rex is likely to fall well below where he should go its not unlikely they would draft him.

    Wow! :icon_surprised: Whoever had the audacity to utter such truthfulness will surely be called on the carpet by the (cultmarx) "higher-up's"...for not sticking to the pro-caste script. :lipsrsealed: :icon_rolleyes:

    This is exactly what I was thinking dwid. This situation would be better for Rex than the Leonard/Hester/Gerhart situations though in my opinion. Jones-drew is a beast for sure, but not quite what the prime Steven jackson was, and certainly not what LT, or Ap are/were. I think the Cowboys should get him of course thats NEVER gonna happen.

    Briefly scanned over to the USF-Cincinnati game and it appears that both teams, of whom were originally lead by black QBs at the beginning of the season, are now starting white QBs.

    He finished with 145 yards which put him at an even 1500 yards rushing for the season (with a bowl game to go.) And all of this behind an offensive line that's been absolutely decimated by injuries. In addition, he had to split carries for several games with Boykin. I think he could have hit the 2000 yard mark, all of these things considered, which would make even the most hardcore Caste slut take notice.

    Between the Ohio/Kent State, Husker/Hawkeye, and N. Ill/E. Mich games, Blankenship was the leading rusher for Ohio, Burkhead was the leading rusher for Nebraska, Weisman the leading rusher for Iowa, and Lynch the leading rusher for N. Ill...the leading rusher on 4 of these 6 teams was White.

    Yes, it's a da*n shame that Burkhead was injured for most of the year. You could see just in the first game how much more explosive and decisive he was on his initial burst through the hole...no hesitation whatsoever...great balance, vision, quickness, and much improved overall speed this year, showcased by his separation from DBs on a couple of his long runs.

    Of course, to give the NFL scouts a rise in their panties, he's going to have to run a fast 40 as that's the only thing they really care about in a RB at the NFL level, when, in actuality, it's probably one of the least important attributes of them all for a RB...probably fifth in line to vision, agility, balance, and quickness.

    I thought I had to make mention of this somewhere. Last weekend, Florida, with Jeff Driskel out with an ankle injury, became the first FBS team ever to start 22 non white players. What a dubious "achievement" for the Gators, I bet their fans did not even notice it at all, or if they did, they probably cheered it; they finally got rid of every last unathletic white man on offense or defense.:mad2:

    That is pretty pathetic and sad. A real step back for us few opponents of the caste system.

    The three national games currently being shown to DWF Nation are: NBC has Grambling vs. Southern, CBS has Auburn vs. Alabama, and ABC is showing Florida vs. Florida State. Roughly what, 12 White starters combined out of 132 starters on those six teams? But there's no agenda at work, that's important to remember.

    on the bright side, in the Wisconsin-Penn St. game, White athletes are making plays all over the field. in addition to featured White athletes on each offense, both defenses feature outstanding White talent, as well.

    late in the third quarter, "fullback" Zach Zwinak currently has 157 yards rushing and 1 touchdown on 30 carries for Penn St.

    well at least Zwinak is on ESPN doing well with 147 yards rushing for right now against Wisconsin still in the 3rd, and Zach Line was on FX earlier. Hopefully some people tuned into these games.



    Man I am so sick of the Grambling/Southern game. There's already a large black population here, having an entire weekend where more come flood the city makes it worse. Businesses don't really profit from it, and the blacks themselves don't even come to watch the game, most pay more attention to the half time show.

    It's coming in yet another losing effort for Wake Forest, but Mike Campanaro is having a great game for the Deacs.
    8 catches for 98 yards. Also 2 carries for 13 yards.

    it was in a loss, but Duke's outstanding wide receiver Connor Vernon had another stellar game. he finished with 11 catches for 109 yards and 2 touchdowns.

    for Central Florida, wideout JJ Worton caught 3 passes for 36 yards, but 2 of them went for touchdowns. he also had 1 punt return for 34 yards.

    SMU got predictable in the second half, as they nursed a big lead. consequently Zach Line's final stats weren't as big as i thought they'd be after his big first half. he finished with 23 carries for 81 yards and 3 touchdowns.

    Beau Blankenship ran for 145 yards on 29 carries for Ohio.

    Buffalo's outstanding wide receiver, Alex Neutz, once again accounted for more than half his team's passing game. he finished with 6 catches for 92 yards.

    I flipped to the Duke game and across the bottom of the screen it said "Conner Vernon sets ACC record for receptions and yardage". :clap2:

    The WIS-Penn St. game is the exact opposite of the garbage being shown elsewhere, as Don has already mentioned some of those games.

    Numerous White players are making plays on both sides of the ball, and it appears at least 50% of total starters at any given time are White.

    And as I type this, Zwinak has just been named the "Hardest Working Player" of the game. :eek:hwell:

    Zwinak has 991 yards for the year going into overtime with Wisconsin. This is his last chance to get 1000 yards because they can't go to a bowl game.

    Now he's injured :icon_neutral:

    After his 6 yards on that carry, it looks like he's going to finish 3 yards short...

    He was short-striding on one foot when he walked off the field. Seemed like a hurt toe maybe. If they go to 2OT, he can still get to 1,000.


    But... Not any more.
    Penn State wins.

    the box score on espn says 179 yards today, and 821 coming in, which would put him at exactly 1,000 yards unless those are the wrong numbers. Hope his injury isn't serious, good to see at least a few of the top White backs from the past few years getting a chance to do something, Zwinak one of the few playing his actual position, with guys like Swope and Campanaro getting time at receiver.

    Great, Manziel's injured. Something with his knee. He's out of the game now. An afflete from Missouri twisted his leg when he was trying to push forward for another yard on a rush.

    I was going by Highlander's numbers. ZZ Top may indeed have the magical four digit number in his stat-line now.
