    Mark Weisman is off to another great start today against Minnesota so far. Through the 1st play of the 2nd quarter, Weisman has 11 rushes for 111 yards and a TD!!

    Baylor and West Virginia are currently tied at 14 after the 1st Quarter. Nick Florence 5/6 for 87 yards and 1 INT so far.

    Of course Galloway is trying to paint Weisman as a one-dimensional "power back". Weisman has great balance, feet, and instincts, along with excellent power, size and good speed. He reminds me of a mix between Riggins and Gerhart.

    Switching between that game and Baylor vs. WVU...just glad I'm not sitting too close to the TV as the announcers are all orgasmic about Geno Smiff. Ughh. West Virginia fans have to be the most embarrassing of them all...a state with a 90% White population cheering on "their" 90% black team.

    Weisman is ridiculous so far - 16 carries for 155 yds 9.7 avg. What a great surprise for this season.

    Actually, I have him at 15 carries for 154 yards and a 10.1 average. :p Either way, Weisman is tearing up that improved Minnesota defense out there right now.

    Zach Zwinak with 10 carries for 49 yards and a TD so far, leading Penn State in rushing, as Riddle said, even when splitting carries.

    Looks like Northwestern has finally made Siemian their starting QB. Kolter is playing WR, where he belongs.

    It's about time Siemian gets to start. It makes Northwestern more watchable.

    Anyway, Chris Humphrey is leading Kent State in receiving right now, with 2 catches for 49 yards.


    Johnny Manziel is tearing up the Arkansas Razorbacks right now. 15/19 for 169 yards and 2 TDs passing, and 8 rushes for 81 yards to lead both teams in rushing.

    Nick Florence and Baylor putting in a strong showing against the extremely difficult to defend Dana Holgorsen offense of West Virginia. Tied 35-35 at Halftime.

    Damn I forgot about Weisman, been watching the Penn St game. Zwinak needs more carries, the other guy has the same amount of carries 3.6 ypc, one play for 19 yards, so besides that averaging less than 2 ypc.

    The half time showed just about every game except Iowa. Since when do they fail to mention a game from the same conference during half time?

    It would be nice if Trumpy got more carries, the other week when he got 16 he had over 100 rushing. Plus that would mean one more White rb to add for the Big 10 today. Hope Rex does great tonight.

    Getz with a nice 51-yard run for Air Force against CSU. He looks very fast.

    As I mentioned in the Gopher's thread, Minnesota's offense has really whitened up this year. I think they have eight white starters, along with plenty of white back ups. Shortell drove Minnesota down the field, capped off by a TD pass to Isaac Fruechte. So far, Minnesota's top 5 pass catchers this game are white.

    I am watching the W. Virginia vs Baylor game. Both QB's have thrown for over 500 yards. College and Pro football are starting to resemble the NBA. All offense and no defense. The push for scoring and points, by changing the rules, is wrecking the quality of the game.

    Mike Glennon leads a mad charge in the 4th to tie up Miami. One minute left.

    Despite the abundance of white offensive skill players on the Tulsa roster (including the gameday 2-deep), not a single one of them has got a catch or a carry in today's game versus UAB. Not even on special teams.

    It's unfortunate for Purdue that mulatto Robert Marve wasn't injured earlier.
    He had to sit the bench before they were able to discover an actual Quarterback in Caleb Terbush. Purdue looked great last week and they look great today. They probably could've beaten the Gholston-led Notre Dame earlier this season if they had started Terbush.

    High-flying WR Alex Amidon has sliced through the Clemson secondary so far today, making an amazing catch earlier, and catching 31 yard 4th down TD to put BC ahead! He has 3 catches for 97 yards a TD!!

    Amidon for BC already has 97 yards and a TD as BC leads Clemson 21-17. White CB Sean Sylvia also spectacularly intercepted Tahj Boyd.
