    If you ask me this is possibly the worst week in sports I’ve experienced. These RBs getting hurt are literally the most important white players in football. McCaffrey, self explanatory, and Borghi/Shipley the greatest hopes in a long time. Plus Breese, and other big names.

    And a lot of stuff that doesn’t pertain to you guys but kills me like the Mariners getting clobbered while fighting for the wildcard haha

    I agree with you, Jacque. It will take a while to get over the funk I am in and a lot of cold ones.

    Slovis and USC upset late night...his draft stock is trending in the wrong direction - from what I saw of that game Oregon State and Chance Nolan looked pretty good. I hope Miller/McCord/Ewers all consider a transfer. Put Miller in Madison! - again I do not understand these guys all committing to the same school that has no track record of developing successful NFL QBs.

    Martinez lost the game for Nebraska in overtime throwing an INT. Why Frost continues to put his full trust in such a mediocre player is beyond my logical thought process. Sparty is 4-0 with alot of excellent White defensive players.

    Thanks for the stats again 22! I wonder what happened to Will Jones and Steele? They had been averaging over 5 yards a carry.

    I just wanted to point out how hard the NCAA and the NFL want the majority of starting quarterbacks to be black guys.

    Jordan Mccloud got his first start for the U of A Wildcats yesterday. Despite throwing 5 interceptions in the game against Oregon
    he has been awarded the starting job for the rest of the season. The Wildcats are 0-4 and haven't won more than a handful of games
    the last few years. It's no wonder when the coach makes decisions like this. They have around 4 other qb's equal or better yet they
    have annouced that McCloud is the starter no matter what happens on the field.

    It's certainly trending that way. I'd guess in FCS and FBS it's a 60 white/40 black split now. Certain teams are recruiting Black QBs only. There is a certain amount of washout when it comes to these guys for sure. The thing that really hurts White QBs is when they get stockpiled at the same school. Ohio State has 3 white QBs that can be starters at any other program in the country. Miami has a big time talent in Tyler Van Dyke who sits behind an overrated undersized quotaback who was supposed to be the catalyst for the most recent "return of da U".

    Spread elements in the NFL only go so far and competent play from the pocket is essential. Their is a big schism between NFL and college offenses. Now with colleges running more and more spread option/RPO the QB play is not as good - "accuracy" is subjective rather than objective and does not take into account the high number of easy throws being made. The only reason Murray is having the sort of success he is right now is because he is running the same plays he did in high school and college. I can't think of any White QB that has enjoyed that advantage off the top of my head.

    We just have to reiterate it's okay to be white.

    Borghi seems to have escaped serious injury and is questionable for the week 5 matchup.

    Here is former NC state and huskers 5 star QB Harrison Beck commenting on black QBs in football. he’s a bit of an internet comedian/analyst now

    He regularly posts hilarious videos regarding the current state of football. A lot of it is comedic criticism of black QBs. He’s no white nationalist just a funny guy

    edit: I deleted the link I sent because TikTok notifies me who viewed my shared link and I belive I also essentially doxxed myself. So looks like some of you know my identity now, just a warning for anyone who shares a TikTok in the future.
