2017 SUPER ALL-AMERICAN FOOTBALL TEAM! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

 

2017 SUPER ALL-AMERICAN FOOTBALL TEAM! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Scouting Notes I: I have been Selecting College Football Weekly MVP Awards for The Last Fourteen Weeks, and In those 14 Weeks, there were Players with Multi MVP Awards, leading us to believe that they are the Best Football Players in the Country, but The Player had to be on The Winning Team to Qualify for The Weekly MVP Award.

Scouting Notes II: Some Great Performances were not Included on Some Great Players, because their Team Did Not Win. I also did not Select Weekly Offensive Linemen MVP’s, because they were Too Difficult to Select. With these Great Performances on the Losing Team and All Super Offensive Linemen, I have Evaluated all of them on their Highlight Films, so they Could Qualify to be Selected to Our College Football All-American Team. The Last Number for each Player Represents the Number of MVP Awards that he Won or If Evaluated on Highlight Film, it will Read (HF).

Scouting Notes III: The Last Column is My NFL Draft Choice Selection in the 2018 or 2019 Draft.

SAINTS ROOKIE ALVIN KAMARA ALREADY COMPARED TO HERSCHEL WALKER AND GALE SAYERS! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS ROOKIE ALVIN KAMARA ALREADY COMPARED TO HERSCHEL WALKER AND GALE SAYERS IN SETTING ROOKIE RECORDS!

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (41) scores 33 yard pass Td against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during a NFL football game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017.

Alvin Kamara (#41) was Actually Pretty Incredible on Sunday in what could be Called a “One-Man-Show” in the 26-20 Loss to The Los Angeles Rams with his 188-Yards of All-Purpose Yards and Two Touchdowns. This Fabulous Game for Kamara was Still not Enough to keep The Rams from Snapping The Saints Eight-Game Winning Streak.

“Listen, there’s always bright spots,” Saints All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees said when asked about The Great Kamara Day, that included a 74-Yard Touchdown Run in the First quarter and a 15-yard Touchdown Catch in the Fourth Quarter.

Check-Out The Alvin Kamara Sensational 74-Yard Touchdown Run Against The Los Angeles Rams.

Kamara also had two other Unbelievable Runs after the Catch that included him breaking, eluding, and an Unbelievable Hurdle of Several Tacklers. 

Check-Out The Unbelievable Alvin Kamara Hurdle over Several Ram Players:

http://www.espn.com/video/clip/_/id/21578331

“Every time the ball was in his hands, it was exciting,” Brees said. “He was making people miss, he was breaking tackles, he was jumping over people. He’s continuing to progress in  Becoming a Great Player and a Huge part of The Saints Offense.”

According to ESPN, Kamara is now the First Player in the NFL since Herschel Walker in 1986 with more than 500-Yards Rushing and 500-Yards Receiving in his First 11 Career Games. And according to Elias Sports BureauKamara has now matched Gale Sayers in 1965 as the only Two Rookie Running Backs in NFL History with Multiple Games of 150-Yards of All-Purpose Yards with a Rushing Touchdown and a Touchdown Catch.

THE 2017 NFL DRAFT
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for 2017 NFL Draft Logo Photos

If Ten Different NFL Scouts Rated all 32 of the 2017 NFL Draft Classes, there would be Ten Different Draft Class Rankings and the Reason is that all Ten Different Scouts would be Using Ten Different Set of Standards. This is not to say that all Ten Rankings would be Wrong, but all Ten Different Rankings did not Take into Consideration all of the Undrafted Free Agents that were not Drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Some of the Best Players in NFL History were not Drafted and they Fell-Through-The-Cracks of not being Drafted in the NFL Draft and were not going to get a chance to play in the NFL until an NFL Team Signed Them as an Undrafted Free Agent, including Kurt Warner; Two Longtime Friends, Warren Moon and Wes WelkerPriest Holmes, John Randle, James Harrison, and then the recently retired Tony Romo. These Undrafted Free Agents also Include Three Hall of Fame Quarterbacks, including Warner, Moon, and Romo. Also Remember: Warner was Sacking Groceries before given a chance to play in the NFL.

Basically, there are some Unbelievable Diamonds-In-The-Rough out there and The Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, and Pantherdid a Great Job in finding some Incredible Undrafted Free Agents. Some of these Incredible Undrafted Free Agents include SS Quincy Mauger of Georgia, OT Will Freeman of Southern Miss, WR Reggie Davis of Georgia, and OC Cam Keizer of Portland State for the Atlanta Falcons; OC Cameron Tom of Southern Miss and OG Clint Van Horn of Marhall for the Saints; TE Antony Auclair of Laval, OLB Richie Brown of Mississippi State, OLB Paul Magloire of Arizona, and CB Jonathan Moxey of Boise State; and then WR Cameron Posey of Purdue and MLB Ben Boulware of Clemson for the Carolina Panthers.

I decided to Rate and Rank Every NFL Team within their NFL Conference and their are Eight Conferences in the NFL with Four Teams within each Conference.

Please Remember: Every NFL Scout or NFL Analysis Scout has their own Evaluation Process! My Rating and Ranking Evaluation Process for over 40 Years has been my MEARS RATING SYSTEM which Stands-For MAX EMFINGER ASSETS RATING SYSTEM. A Football Player with Great ASSETS is a Player with a Great Forty, a Great Vertical Jump, a Great Pro-Shuttle, or a Great Standing Broad Jump in Relationship To His Position.

THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM

There is a Set Standard Measurables that is Set for Every Position on the Football Field to include each Measurable that is Measured at a Super Combine. These Set Standards will not Change, but since the Football Players at Every Level are getting Bigger, Stronger, and Faster; the MEARS RATINGS will Continue to get Higher and Higher and Higher!

The MEARS RATING SYSTEM, or a similar type Rating System, is very important for all of the NFL Scouts, and the NFL Scouting Combine is the first time that Really “Accurate Measurables” are recorded on the NFL Players before The NFL Draft. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Talent Scout or either by a slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is done, most Forty Times are less than Accurate.

Technique is also very important and that is why College Football Players before the Annual NFL Scouting Combine, before entering the NFL Draft, will hire a Sports Trainer to train and teach them how to do a proper Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, a Standing Broad Jump and yes, the Forty.

Quarterbacks and Kickers are always going to be hard to measure, because they either do not go to Super Elite Combines or they do extremely poor at Super Combines so these two positions must be evaluated very carefully on their Highlight Film or in person and then their MEARS RATING is going to be estimated. I have learned how to Evaluate them and give them an honest MEARS RATING.

SCOUTING NOTE I: The Measurables of a Football Prospect are of Really Great Importance, but it is Very Obvious that some Very Successful NFL Teams feel that they are of Really Great Importance, while some other NFL Teams do not believe that they are of Great Importance. The Ultimate Reason that the NFL Scouting Combine is so Important is because in many cases, this is the First Time that the NFL Scouts get a chance to Really View how Fast and how Athletic that a Prospect is in Relationship to his Position with other Players at the Same Position.

Marshon Lattimore (6-0, 193, 4.33, 38.5, 4.13, 132, 19) of the New Orleans Saints had Incredible Speed Measurables at the 2017 Scouting Combine and In Fact his 2,866 MEARS RATING was the Second Best behind DE Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns with a Mind-Boggling 2,929 MEARS RATING, and who was Drafted #1 Overall.

Lattimore had Maximum MEARS RATING Points in the Pro-Shuttle and the Bench Press; plus Multi Points in Several others. With his 2,866 MEARS RATING, Lattimore became the #1 Rated Player in the NFC South. Tight End O.J. Howard of Alabama and Tampa Bay Buccaneers also had an Unbelievable 2,847 MEARS RATING and he Finished in the Top Five in the 2017 Draft Class. New SLOT Back Christian McCaffrey of Stanford and The Carolina Panthers with a Fabulous 2,829 MEARS RATING will help QB Cam Newton move their New Offense down the field; just as New SLOT Back Alvin Kamara of Tennessee and The New Orleans Saints with a Fabulous 2,818 MEARS RATING will help QB Drew Brees move their New Offense down the field.

SCOUTING NOTE II: In Rating and Ranking the NFL Teams, in the 2017 NFL Draft, I am only Counting the NFL Players with Super Gold (7)Gold (6), Blue (5), and Red (4) MEARS RATINGS and have taken an Average of all of these Players on Each Team and Counted the Average for the Final NFL Team Rankings. Also, some of these Free Agents may have already been released.

SCOUTING NOTE III: Gold Ratings Include Free Agents With Incredible Measurables! All of these Free Agents have Incredible MEARS RATINGS of over 2,700, but since they were Free Agents, and not Drafted, they may not be as Hot a Prospect as those that were Drafted ahead of them. Always Remember that a Player with Incredible Measurables Can Get-To The NFL from Any College in America.

SCOUTING NOTE IV: In dealing with Free Agents, I have Decided to Give One Super-Star Free Agent to Each NFL Team, including Players like Dontari Poe of the Falcons; Adrian Peterson of the SaintsDeSean Jackson of the Bucs; and Captain Munnerlyn of the Panthers in the NFC South Team Rankings.

On March 8, 2015, The New Orleans Saints Re-Signed Heisman Trophy Running Back Mark Ingram to a Four-Year, $16 Million Contract with $6.1 Million Fully Guaranteed and including a $3.6 Million Signing Bonus.

In his Contract, Ingram Could also earn additional Money with even more Incentives. What is Really Interesting in this Ingram Contract is an Unbelievable Clause in his Contract, that States that if Ingram is Voted to The All-Pro Team by The Associated Press, in either 2016 or 2017, he Could become a Free Agent.

Ingram Re-Did his contract Twenty Days Later, on March 28, 2016, that Converted his  $2.235 Million of Salary into a Signing Bonus that Reduced his 2016 Cap-Charge by $1.49 Million. His Cap-Figures will increase by $745,000 in each Remaining Contract Year.

This all Took-Place Last Spring, just before The 2017 NFL Draft, on April 27-29, 2017. Then, a Month Later, after the Mark Ingram Contract, The New Orleans Saints Pulled-Off an Incredible Deal by Negotiating to get Future NFL Hall of Fame Running Back Adrian Peterson. The Saints figured that by getting Peterson, they would now have Two Former All-American Running Backs that would give Super-Star Quarterback Drew Brees another Outstanding Running Back in their Running Game to go with the Great Drew Brees Passing Game.

So, then when The 2017 NFL Draft Came-Around, and The Saints had a Chance to get another Outstanding All-Purpose Slot-Back and Running Back in Alvin Kamara, and although they already had Two All-NFL Running Backs, they just could not pass on getting a Super Slot-Back Player like Kamara and so they Drafted him, causing a Real “Traffic Jam” in The Saints Backfield.

All Three Saints Running Backs and The Saints Realized very Quickly in their Pre-Season that there was a Real Problem with Three Great Running Backs and so The Saints Negotiated another Great Deal that was Great for All of The Three Running Backs, but mostly a Fabulous Deal for The Saints and The Deal was a Trade of Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals, who needed a Running Back.

The Saints lost their First Two Games of the 2017 Season, but after The Saints Traded Peterson to The Arizona Cardinals, all Three Running Backs have been Super-Stars and both The Cardinals and The Saints have Vastly been  Improved, including Eight Straight Victories, including MVP Games for both of The Saints Running Backs, who were Both Honored for their Outstanding Performances in Game Nine and Game Ten.

As the New Orleans Saints have Piled-Up Eight Straight Victories, their players have Received plenty of Recognition from the NFL.

Whether it’s awards directly from the league or those handed out by its sponsors, it seems like at least one New Orleans Saints Player is receiving some kind of recognition nearly every week.

In Game Nine, Ingram ran for 131-Yards and Three Touchdowns Against The Buffalo Bills. In addition to this award, he was also The FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

His Backfield Teammate, Alvin Kamara, has also been receiving His Share of Awards, and for the third time this season, Kamara was named the Pepsi Rookie of the Week Award. Against The Bills, Kamara had 138-Yards Rushing and a Touchdown.

Running Back Mark Ingram, Received The Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week Award for Week Six, Against The Lions and then he Won The Award again for Week Ten.

Ingram, obviously, did not Achieve All-Pro in 2016, but with the way that he is Playing in 2017, he could very well be Selected to the All-Pro Team, but then after Future Hall of Fame Running Back Adrian Peterson was Traded to The Arizona Cardinals, he is Putting Together a Potential All-Pro Season.

Ingram Re-Did his contract Twenty Days Later, on March 28, 2016, that Converted his  $2.235 Million of Salary into a Signing Bonus that Reduced his 2016 Cap-Charge by $1.49 Million. His Cap-Figures will increase by $745,000 in each Remaining Contract Year.

Then in that Tenth Game of the Season and Eighth Straight Saints Victory, Ingram had Two Incredible Runs of 31-Yards and 36-Yards for a Touchdown in a 34-31 Overtime Victory.

RAMS 26 -SAINTS 20
November 26, 2017

Mark Ingram entered this game on Sunday Ranked Fourth in the NFL with 806-Yards Rushing and in a Very Good Spot to be a Pro-Bowler, but he put-up his lowest yardage total of the season Sunday as he Carried the Football 11 Times for only 31-Yards as The Rams broke The Saints Winning Streak at Eight 26-20 loss to The Rams on Sunday.

In this Game, Ingram was clearly Out-Played by his Running Back Teammate, Alvin Kamara, who Rushed for 87-Yards on only Five Carries and a Touchdown and Caught 6 Passes from Drew Brees for another 101-Yards, giving him 188-Yards of All-Purpose Yards and Two Touchdowns.

Alvin Kamara (#41) was Actually Pretty Incredible on Sunday in what could be Called a “One-Man-Show” in the 26-20 Loss to The Los Angeles Rams with his 188-Yards of All-Purpose Yards and Two Touchdowns. This Fabulous Game for Kamara was Still not Enough to keep The Rams from Snapping their Eight-Game Winning Streak.

“Listen, there’s always bright spots,” Saints All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees said when asked about The Great Kamara Day, that included a 74-Yard Touchdown Run in the First quarter and a 15-yard Touchdown Catch in the Fourth Quarter.

Check-Out The Alvin Kamara Sensational 74-Yard Touchdown Run Against The Rams.

Kamara also had two other Unbelievable Runs after the Catch that included him breaking, eluding, and an Unbelievable Hurdle of Several Tacklers. 

Check-Out The Unbelievable Kamara Hurdle over Several Ram Players:

http://www.espn.com/video/clip/_/id/21578331

“Every time the ball was in his hands, it was exciting,” Brees said. “He was making people miss, he was breaking tackles, he was jumping over people. He’s continuing to progress in  Becoming a Great Player and a Huge part of The Saints Offense.”

According to ESPN, Kamara is now the First Player in the NFL since Herschel Walker in 1986 with more than 500-Yards Rushing and 500-Yards Receiving in his First 11 Career Games. And according to Elias Sports Bureau, Kamara has now matched Gale Sayers in 1965 as the only Two Rookie Running Backs in NFL History with Multiple Games of 150-Yards of All-Purpose Yards with a Rushing Touchdown and a Touchdown Catch.

If The Saints had not been trailing most of the game, Ingram likely would have Carried the Ball much more, but Regardless, Ingram Still has been a Statistical Saints Monster in 2017 while averaging over 18 touches per game, so look for him to return to normal production levels next week against The Carolina Panthers.

2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPER 16 MVP’S FOR WEEK EIGHT By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPER 16 MVP’S FOR WEEK EIGHT
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

WEEKLY NOTES: To be Eligible for an MVP Berth: The Player has got to be on The Winning Team.

In Week Eight, I have Set some New Guidelines for the MVP Players as Follows: Quarterbacks: 450-Yards of Offense – All-Purpose Backs: 200-Yards of Offense – Running Backs: 250 Yards of Offense – Wide Receivers: 175-Yards of Offense – Tight End: 90-Yards of Offense – Defensive Line: 2 Sacks or 2 TFL – Linebacker: 15 Tackles or 2 Sacks – Defensive Back: 2 Interceptions

SCOUTING NOTES FOR WEEK EIGHT: “Magic” Mayfield and “The Guice” were Outright Sensational; while Ferguson, Lock, Hall, Pollard, AndersonMiller, Herndon, and Moore had Unbelievable Games on Offense. On Defense, Key, Pinckney, Whitehead, and Wallace are Several Potential #1 Draft Choices.

Oh Yes! My Last Two Write-ups in Week Eight were Lock and Key, which is even better than A.J., D.J., and L.J. in Week Seven!

I Promise I was Trying to Shorten my Weekly MVP Report, but there was so much Fabulous Info, I just Could not Leave any of it out. I’ll Try Harder!

SUPER WEEKLY MVP

“The Guice”

Related imageRunning Back Derrius Guice (#5) – LSU

LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron probable gave us some Real Insight, earlier in the weekas to what the New LSU Offensive Game Plans might be in The Upcoming Game in Oxford against Ole Miss.

On The Ed Orgeron Weekly Radio Talk Show, an LSU Caller asked if The Tigers might be going to use more of the Short Passes in their Offensive Game Plan.Derrius Guice will be able to Go Full-Speed for the First Time this Season and he does a Great Job in Catching the Football Out of the Backfield,” said Coach Orgeron.

This was a Great Response that “The Guice” was going to be Carrying the Football a lot more and by either Carrying the Football or Catching the Football, Guice was going to be a Much-More Offensive Force, much like The Force at the End of the 2016 Season, when he “Put-Up” some Incredible Stats.

So what just Happened in Oxford?

Derrius Guice Ran for an Incredible Season-High 276-Yards and was Virtually Unstoppable in Leading The LSU Tigers to a Crushing 40-24 Victory over The Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday night.

In the Ole Miss Victory, Guice Actually Put his LSU Single-Game Rushing Record of 285-Yards Against Texas A&M Last Season in Jeopardy, after Three Quarters. Guice was in “Striking-Distance” of his Own LSU Record and also The SEC Single-Game Rushing Record of 321-Yards, but “The Guice” was “Saving-These-Records” for Later This Year.

Actually, “The Guice” did not Break those Two Records, but he Still Broke another Rushing Record when he became the First Player in SEC History to Rush for 250-Yards or more in Three Straight Games. When you are Playing in a Conference that Includes Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, Leonard Fournette, and Several Others; this is an Incredible and Shocking Accomplishment.

LSU (6-2 and 3-1 in the SEC) has Won Three Straight Games and Quarterback Danny Etling also had his Best Game of the Season as he Completed 9 of 13 Passes for 200-Yards and Two Touchdowns.

This Game was More than “Just a Victory” for Coach Ed Orgeron, because he was the Ole Miss Head Coach for three Football Seasons from 2005-07.

Guice  (5-11, 218, 4.36, 36, 4.26) Rushed for 126-Yards in the First Half, which was already good enough for his Season-High. It was the biggest reason The Tigers had a 13-6 Lead by Half-Time and the he was far from Finished.

Ole Miss (3-4 and 1-3 in the SEC) came into the game with the Most Prolific Passing Offense, in the SEC, but struggled for pretty much the whole Night against The Great LSU Defense.

Ole Miss Super-Star Quarterback Shea Patterson Came into the Game Leading the SEC  with 2,143-Yards Passing, but he hurt his Right Knee in the Second Quarter and did not  play the final series of the First Half. He returned in the second half, but The Rebels Offense did not fare much better.

Patterson Completed only 10 of 23 Passes for 116-Yards, No Touchdowns and Three Interceptions.

It’s Pretty Unbelievable, that a Major College Football Team could have a Heisman Trophy Candidate at the Same Running Back Position for Three Consecutive Years, but after having Leonard Fournette as a Heisman Trophy Candidate in 2015 and again in 2016, LSU will have another Heisman Trophy Running Back Candidate in Guice in 2017. In High School, Fournette and Guice were theBest Players” on the Football Field in Every Single Game, that they Played-In and Obviously they have been the “Best Player on the Football Field” in College.

After this Incredible Game, “The Guice” was Selected as The Maxwell National Player of the Week Award, to go with his SEC Offensive Player of the Week Award.

SUPER SCOUT NFL REPORT: “The Guice” will Break all of the Leonard Fournette Records and Unless he gets a Major Injury, will Follow Fournette in being a #1 Draft Choice on Day One of the Draft.

“The Guice” Ran for an Unbelievable Season-High 276-Yards and Caught One Pass for 9-Yards, giving him 285 Yards of Total Offense – 285 Yards of Total Offense

The Incredible Derrius Guice Story

One of the Most Incredible Running Back Stories in the History of College Football is the Story of LSU Running Back Derrius Guice. I saw him play as a Senior in High School for Baton Rouge Catholic and I thought that he was a Super-Freak, but I also knew that he Obviously was an LSU Fan.

Then when Guice (#5) Committed to LSU, who already had Two other Super Running Back Freaks in Freshman Super-Star Leonard Fournette of New Orleans St Augustine, Louisiana and another Potential Super-Star in Darrel Williams of Marrero John Ehret, Louisiana. I saw all Three Running Back Freaks Play in High School, but if they are all on the Same Team, only one of them could be the Starting Running Back.

Fournette was a Freshman Starter and he was Selected to the Freshman All-SEC Team. Then in 2015, as a Sophomore, Fournette was a Consensus First Team All-American, while Freshman Guice and Williams, hardly got any Playing-Time.

Then in 2016, and being Hailed as The Heisman Trophy Favorite, Fournette got Injured, giving Guice and Williams a Chance to become the Super “Go-To” Running Back and “The Guice” took Full Advantage of the Miracle and a Chance to Play.

It’s Pretty Unbelievable, that a Major College Football Team could have a Heisman Trophy Candidate at the Same Running Back Position for Three Consecutive Years, but after having Leonard Fournette as a Heisman Trophy Candidate in 2015 and again in 2016, LSU will have another Heisman Trophy Running Back Candidate in Guice in 2017. In High School, Fournette and Guice were theBest Players” on the Football Field in Every Single Game, that they Played-In and Obviously they have been the “Best Player on the Football Field” in College.

I met Fournette after his Fabulous High School Freshman Football Season in which he Rushed for an Incredible 2,500-Yards and Scored 30 Touchdowns. Also, Fournette became the First HS Freshman Football Player to be offered a Scholarship by The LSU Tigers, and he Finished his High School Career with an Amazing 7,619-Yards Rushing and 88 Touchdowns.

After Signing with LSU, Fournette became a Household Name” during his Freshman Season when he Rushed for 1,034-Yards and Scored 10 Touchdowns. Then in 2015, The Tigers started off with a 7-0 Record and they were Ranked in the Top 5 in the Country, with Fournette leading the way as their Heisman Trophy Candidate, as he Finished with 1,953-Yards Rushing23 Touchdowns, and an Incredible 162.75 Yards Per Game, in 12 Games.

Heading into the 2016 Football Season, most all of the talk was whether or not Fournette would Sit-Out to preserve himself for the 2017 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, Fournette decided to play and it was Riddled By Nagging Injuries, but an Unbelievable New Super-Star Emerged for The LSU Tigers.

And here is where one of the Most Incredible Running Back Stories in College Football Began. For the first time in the 2016 season, LSU Sophomore Super-Star Running Back Derrius Guice Showed to the College Football World who he Was and What he could do with a Football, as he was Awarded as the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week AwardGuice is the Eighth LSU Football Player since 2004 to earn this National Award, the last being Leonard Fournette in the 2015 Football Season

Then On Thanksgiving Night, in front of a National Television Audience against Texas A&M, Guice Finished his Sophomore Regular Season with a “Mind-Boggling” Game as he Set an LSU Single-Game School Rushing Record with an Incredible 285-Yards Rushing, as he Carried the Football an Amazing 37-Times, and Four Touchdowns, while Averaging 7.7-Yards Per Carry.

LSU Defeated the Aggies 54-39 in in a Very Loud and Very Partial Kyle Football Field with Guice Leading-The-Way, LSU was able to Accumulate an Unbelievable 622-Yards of Total Offense, in what Most Football Scouts and LSU Football Fans Believe is a Great Preview of the 2017 Football Season.

In the game against Texas A&M, Guice scored Touchdowns on runs of 45, 45, 6, and 1-Yard in the Win. Guice is now one of only Four Players in SEC History to have Multiple 250-Yard Games in a Single Season, joining Hall-Of-Fame Super Running Backs, Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, and Moe Williams.

Guice Averaged 9.0-Yards Per Carry behind Fournette in the 2015 and 2016 Seasons and in 2016, he also Averaged 7.6-Yards Per Carry and 16 Touchdowns on an LSU Football Team that did not even Highlight Him as a Running Back. Guice is a Very Strong and Very Powerful Running Back and a Definite Forerunner for The Heisman Trophy Award and he will be Running Behind a Very Athletic and Very Experienced Offensive Line.

At the End of the 2016 Football Season, The New Super-Star, Derrius Guice wasn’t only the best Running Back on his own LSU Football Team; but he just might have been the best Running Back in the Entire Country.

Quarterback

Oklahoma Super-Star Quarterback Baker “Magic” Mayfield was Incredible in a Crucial 42-35 Victory over Kansas State as he Completed 32 of 41 Passes for 410-Yards and Two Touchdowns. Mayfield also Rushed for another 69-Yards and another Two Touchdowns, giving him 479-Yards and Four Touchdowns in the Victory.

The Oklahoma Sooners have made a habit of Squandering Early-Leads for much of this season, but they went the other Direction on this Saturday night.

Oklahoma Quarterback Baker Mayfield is one of the Best Quarterbacks in the Country and he has been Pretty Sensational all Season and Versatile Running Back Rodney Anderson has also been Outstanding.

In this Game, it looked like the Sooners were going to be Upset, but both Mayfield and Super-Star All-Purpose Back Rodney Anderson were “Flat-Out” Incredible in this Crucial Big-12 Game 42-35 Victory over Kansas State in Manhattan.

Rodney Anderson ran 22-Yards for the Winning Touchdown with 7 Seconds left in the Game and Mayfield Passed for 410-Yards and Accounted for Four Touchdowns, and the #9 Team in the Country Overcame a 21-10 Halftime Deficit to beat Kansas State 42-35 and Keep their Playoff hopes Still Alive.

“Our guys at halftime had a great look in their eye. They were determined to come out and play a lot better,” Sooners Head Coach Lincoln Riley said. “But the mentality really went to another level there in the locker room at halftime. They were really ready to play.”

“As a leadership group, we took care of it and handled it,” Mayfield said. “That’s a huge win for us, considering we haven’t played well in the second half most of the season.”

This was the Sooners Nation-Leading 14th Consecutive True Road Victory, and it Extended their Run of Dominance in Manhattan. They haven’t lost to the Wildcats in their Home Stadium since 1996.

“I’m tired of coming into the locker room under such circumstances,” said Kansas State Old Friend and Head Coach Bill Snyder, whose team has lost three straight to the Sooners. “We’ve lost far too many games. You have to play complete games in this conference. One half won’t do it.”

All-American Quarterback Baker Mayfield  Completed 32 of 41 Passes for 410-Yards and Two Touchdowns and Rushed for another 69-Yards and another Two Touchdowns, giving him 479-Yards and Four Touchdowns in the Victory. – 479-Yards of Total Offense

Super Memphis Quarterback Riley Ferguson had another Incredible Passing-Game as he Completed 33 of 53 Passes for 471-Yards and Threw a 21-Yard Winning-Touchdown Pass to Sean Dykes with 1:28 Left in the Game to Defeat The Houston Cougars in a 42-38 “Hair-Raising” and On-the-Road Victory on Thursday Night in Houston.

Ferguson Hit is Favorite Wide Receiver Anthony Miller with 10 Passes for 178-Yards and Running Back Patrick Taylor Rushed for 39-Yards on 14 Carries, but Rushed for a Career-High Four Touchdowns and Memphis Rallied to beat The Cougars.

The Tigers were Losing by 17 Points in the Second Half, but there was no panic for Ferguson and his Memphis Super-Stars as they kept their focus and finished with The Victory.

“Offensively, to go from being shutout in the first half, not playing our best ball, a lot of mistakes, everything that could probably go wrong in the first half did,” Memphis Head Coach Mike Norvell said. “But, I came into the locker room and there was something about their eyes. No panic. They came out and absolutely responded.”

Ferguson Found Dykes to Complete an Eight-Play, 80-Yard Winning Touchdown Drive that took 1:49 to give Memphis its only lead of the Game.

“We said we had to stay focused,” Ferguson said. “We knew we would be able to score as long as we didn’t hurt ourselves. We knew we had to regain our focus and stop shooting ourselves in the foot.”

Miller Caught 10 Passes for 178-YardsTony Pollard Grabbed 9 Passes for 91-Yards, and Dykes Caught 2 Passes for 41-Yards as The Tigers Finished with 501-Yards Passing and they only had 30-Yards Rushing.

“It was just ground and pound,” Taylor said about his four touchdown runs. “It was taking advantage of every opportunity that they gave me when they gave me the ball.”

Drew Lock had another Unbelievable Game on Saturday as he Completed 23 of 33 Passes for 467-Yards and Six Touchdowns in leading The Tigers to a 68-21 Victory over The Idaho Vandals at Missouri Faurot Football Field.

In this Game, Lock fell one Touchdown Pass Short of The Missouri School Single-Game Touchdown Record that he set in the Season Opener. Lock was Selected as an College Football MVP in Game One and again in Game Eight. J’Mon Moore was also Sensational as he Caught 11 Passes for 174-Yards and a Touchdown.

In a Team Meeting on Monday, Missouri Head Coach Barry Odom Blasted the Team, because of a Disappointing First Half of the Season after their Great Opening Game. Five days later, The Tigers Started the Second Half of the Season by Torching The Idaho Defensive Secondary and Ended a Five-Game Losing Streak.

“I think the Display in the Team Meeting Room Monday was perfect,” Quarterback Lock said. “I think we’re all buying into the whole second season. Starting off 1-0 is what we needed. I think we can keep building on that. We’ve got a lot of winnable games coming up, and we just need to believe in it.”

The Game Did Not Start-Out Very Good for The Tigers (2-5) as Lock was Intercepted on the First Play, and The Vandals (2-5) proceeded to Score a Touchdown on a 7-Yard Touchdown Pass.

“There was a very Heated Discussion between our offensive coordinator and him,” Coach Odom said, referring to Coach Josh Heupel and Lock. “It would not be G-Rated.”

Lock, in his third year as The Starting Quarterback for a team that hasn’t posted a Winning Record since 2014, said he has developed thick skin.

“I’ve handled a lot of adversity since I’ve been here, so throwing a pick on the first play, I’ve been in a lot worse situations here,” Lock said.

Image result for Darrin Hall Photos1. Running Back Darrin Hall (#22) – Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Junior Running Back Darrin Hall had an Unbelievable Game on Saturday as he Rushed for a Career-High 254-Yards and Three Touchdowns in Leading The Panthers to a 24-17 Victory over DukeHall Averaged an Incredible 10.6 yards on 24 carries facing a Blue Devil Defense that was Giving-Up Only a Mere 108-Yards Per Game on the Ground. Hall Recorded Two Incredible Touchdown Runs of 79-Yards and 92-Yards.

Check The 79-Yarder Out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9QYycM_esw

The Latter 92-Yard Touchdown was the Longest Touchdown Run in Pittsburgh History, eclipsing the 100-Year-Old record of a 91-Yard Touchdown Run that was Established in 1917 by George McLaren, who, incidentally Played under The Legendary Coach Pop Warner.

Hall (5-11, 220, 4.43, 36, 4.23) from Austintown Fitch, Ohio scored his Third Touchdown on a Four-Yard Touchdown Run with 10:48 left in the Fourth Quarter and it gave The Panthers the Final 21-17 lead for The Victory.

The Incredible Performance for Hall helped The Panthers Record a Season-High 336-Yards Rushing and it more than Tripled what Duke had been Giving-Up, before the Game.

Hall was a Super-Star Running Back as a Junior in High School at Austintown Fitch, Ohio when he was an All-State Running Back, leading his Fitch Team Deep into the Playoffs, but his Senior-Season was Shortened by Injury. Never-The-Less, the Injury-Filled High School Career, Hall was a Super Photo-Typical Type Running Back with Great Size, Quickness, and Agility. His Best Forty Time on Record in High School was a 4.6, but if you Watch his High School Highlights, Hall is Running a 4.5 or Better on his Long Touchdown Runs.

Hall also was on the Fitch Track Team and he Probably ran Faster in High School, but just did not run Faster for Hudl, because he was a Highly Recruited Player with Over 30 Offers.

In 2015, as a Pittsburgh True Freshman, Hall was a Reserve, but he Started one Game. Then, in 2016, Hall was a Running Back Reserve and Looking Forward to being the Featured Starter at Running Back.

SUPER SCOUT NFL REPORT: This Scouting Report Takes on an Interesting and Unusual Outlook. Darrin Hall is a “Difference-Maker” with Size, Speed, Quickness, Agility, and Power. If you Watch Hall on his Long Touchdown Runs, he is the Fastest Player on the Football Field. Hall has a 4.23 Pro-Shuttle and a 36 Vertical Jump on Record.

Most NFL Scouts do not have Darrin Hall Going in the First Round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but they may be Updating their Draft Lists after this Duke Game. Hall may or May Not Come-Back for his Senior Season.

After Hall Rushed for a Career-High 254-Yards and Three Touchdowns and Caught One Pass for Four-Yards, giving him 258-Yards of Total Offense, he was Selected as The Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Back of The Week in Week Eight. – 258-Yards of Total Offense

Wide Receiver

Super Memphis Quarterback Riley Ferguson Hit his Favorite Wide Receiver Anthony Miller with 10 Passes for 178-Yards as Memphis Rallied to beat The Houston Cougars in a 42-38 Come-From-Behind Victory.

Miller Caught 10 Passes for 178-Yards, Tony Pollard Grabbed 9 Passes for 91-Yards and Dykes Caught 2 Passes for 41-Yards as The Tigers Finished with 501-Yards and they only had 30-Yards Rushing.

Miller Averaged 17.8-Yards Per Catch; while Pollard Averaged 10.1 Per Catch and Dykes Averaged 20.5 Per Catch. With only 30-Yards Rushing, these Receiving Stats are Unbelievable in the Huge Memphis Victory.

Moore (6-3, 205, 4.47) from Missouri City Elkins, Texas is a Senior who Caught 4 Passes in the First Game of the Season for an Incredible 187-Yards and 2 Touchdowns. He became the Starter as a Junior and he is The Only Returning Wide Receiver Returning in the SEC with 1,000-Yards Receiving.

Moore Currently has 39 Catches in 2017 for 676-Yards and 7 Touchdowns. He has 132 Career Catches for 2,071-Yards and 18 Touchdowns. I am Very Familiar with Elkins High School, because my Son, Eric, Played Football and Baseball for Elkins Middle School and in the Ninth Grade as a Freshman at Elkins High School before we moved to Hammond, Louisiana.

Moore actually Caught 11 Passes for 174-Yards, but Since I am a Little Partial to Elkins High School, I gave him an Extra Yard so he could join his Quarterback, Drew Lock, on the Week Eight MVP, after also joining Lock on the Week One MVP Report.

Image result for Rodney Anderson Photos2. All-Purpose Rodney Anderson (#24) – Oklahoma

There were a Few Games on Saturday that I had Marked as Key Games and that I wanted to Watch. The Oklahoma and Kansas State Game was one of the Crucial and Key Games in the Big-12 and I Definitely wanted to watch this Game on Television.

Oklahoma is Loaded with Unbelievably Talented Players, but Kansas State has also been Playing Great and they also had some Talented Players and the Game was going to be Played in Manhattan on the Kansas State Home Field.

Oklahoma Quarterback Baker Mayfield is one of the Best Quarterbacks in the Country and he has been Pretty Sensational all Season and Versatile Running Back Rodney Anderson has also been Outstanding.

In this Game, it looked like the Sooners were going to be Upset, but both Mayfield and Super-Star All-Purpose Back Rodney Anderson were “Flat-Out” Incredible in this Crucial Big-12 Game 42-35 Victory over Kansas State in Manhattan.

Rodney Anderson ran 22-Yards for the Winning Touchdown with 7 Seconds left in the Game and Mayfield Passed for 410-Yards and Accounted for Four Touchdowns, and the #9 Team in the Country Overcame a 21-10 Halftime Deficit to beat Kansas State 42-35 and Keep their Playoff hopes Still Alive.

After leading the Big 12 with its 5.4-Yards Per Carry in 2016, the Oklahoma Offense was going to have to replace their Running Backs with the Departures of Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon to The NFL. One of the Main Candidates in 2017 would be Red-Shirt Sophomore Rodney Anderson.

Anderson (6-1, 218, 4.41, 38) from Katy High School, Texas is Unbelievably Strong and Fast, but he had missed Virtually all of his First Two Seasons in Norman. As a Freshman in 2015, Anderson Sustained a leg injury on kickoff coverage at Tennessee in the Second Game of the Season, sidelining him for the rest of the year.

Anderson Recorded 147-Yards Rushing and a Touchdown, Caught Four Passes for 36-Yards and another Touchdown. and Returned 3 Kickoffs for 17-Yards, giving him 200-Yards of Total Offense and Two Touchdowns. – 200-Yards of Total Offense

Tight End

Super Miami Tight End Chris Herndon had a Breakout Game in the 27-19 Victory over The Syracuse Orangemen.

In this Breakout Game, Herndon (6-4, 254, 4.64) from Norcross, Georgia Caught a Career-High 10 Passes and also Totaled a Career-Best 96-Yards and Scored One Touchdown in the Victory over Syracuse. Herndon Improved on his Previous Career high of Eight Catches set earlier this year against Toledo, and he had already set a Career Best for Receiving Yards at the End of the First Half on Saturday.

One Thing that you must Consider in Talking about Tight Ends is that they are Never the Used as the Primary Receiver and when a Tight End Catches 10 Passes in one Game, it has got to be Considered an Extraordinary Accomplishment and Feat.

Herndon was a Fringe Receiving Option for Miami in 2016 last season and he Frequently played in a Double Tight End Offense, sharing the Tight End Set with NFL #1 Draft Choice David Njoku. Herndon still however, Caught 28 Passes for 334-Yards and Two Touchdowns, and with a First Down or 11.9-Yards Per Catch Average.

Although Herndon was Fourth on The Miami Team in Pass Receptions, Receiving Yards and touchdowns last Season, he was one of the Best-Looking Tight Ends Coming-Back for the 2017 Season and he has a Great Chance to be a High Draft Choice in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Herndon was also Selected on the Pre-Season John Mackey Award Watch List as the #1 Tight End in the Country. The Last Hurricane to Win The John Mackey  Award was Kellen Winslow in 2003. – 96-Yards of Offense

Defensive End

After starting the season off slowly, due to the Shoulder Injury, Key has slowly worked himself back into shape, and also Losing around 20 Pounds in the Process over the last Five Weeks.

The hard work, by Key, Really Paid-Off when he became his “Old Super Edge-Rusher Self” in the Auburn Game when he Recorded his First Quarterback Sack on the Last Auburn Tigers Play from Scrimmage. At that Point, all of the LSU Fans and NFL Scouts started Jumping for Joy, because “The Key” was back.

In the 40-24 Victory over The Ole Miss Rebels, Key Recorded a Season-High Six Tackles, including Five Solo Tackles, Two Quarterback Sacks and One Forced Fumble.

SUPER SCOUT NFL REPORT: The NFL has gone to a Passing League and a “Rush-End” or “Edge-Rusher” Like Arden Key are in a More Higher Demand, for some NFL Teams, than a Franchise Quarterback or Running Back, because Rushing the Passer is one of the Most Important Tools for some NFL Defenses. Key is Probably the #1 Rush End in the 2018 Draft and he is a Sensational Quarterback-Hunter.

In Comparing Arden Key to the Last Two #1 Edge-Rushers, Jadeveon Clowney and Myles Garrett, Key is more Versatile than either Clowney or Myles. Key may not be as Fast as Clowney or as Strong as Garrett, but he is Phenomenal at using his Great Speed for a 6-6 and 255 Edge-Rusher, with Long-Arms, and in Getting Up-Field and Making the TackleKey also has Unbelievable Agility and Athleticism, allowing him to get to the Quarterback.

Key has the Potential to Rate as High as Highly Rated #1 Edge Rushers, Clowney and Garrett and Could Become the #1 Selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

All-American Quarterback Mason Rudolph had another Incredible Game, against my Alma Mater, as he Completed 19 of 31 Passes for 459-Yards and Three Touchdowns and Rushed for another 11-Yards and another Touchdown, giving him another Mind-Boggling 470-Yards of Total Offense and Four Touchdowns in Leading The #14 Ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys in Demolishing The Baylor Bears in a  59-16 Victory.

Both Rudolph and Washington are Seniors and they both got their First Career Victories over The Baylor Bears in Four Games. In this Game, Oklahoma State Recorded an Incredible and an Eye-Popping 747-Yards of Total Offense and Seven Touchdowns.

Both Rudolph and Washington would have also Won in Week #4, but Their Team Lost to TCU.

“I’m having fun now,” Head Coach Mike Gundy said. “When we win, I’m having a good time.”

“I think it was important to the whole team,” Washington said. “Since I’ve been here, we’ve never beat Baylor, so going into this game, I felt like we had a chip on our shoulder, and we just really wanted to get a win from them for the guys that hadn’t.”

Wide Receiver Marcell Ateman Also Caught Four Passes for 119-Yards and a Touchdown; while Running Back Justice Hill also ran for another 117-Yards and a Touchdown for The Cowboys as they Improved their Record to 5-1 and 2-1 in the Big 12.

Running Back

1. Running Back A.J. Dillon (#2) – Boston College

Unbelievable True Freshman Running Back A.J. Dillon helped lead his Boston College to an Incredible 45-42 UPSET Victory over Heavily Favored Louisville as he Rushed for 272-Yards on 39 Carries and Scored Four Touchdowns. The 272-Yards Rushing in a Game are also the Fifth-Most by any Player in the Country in 2017.

Dillon Scored Touchdowns on runs of 1, 3, 11, and 75-Yards as the Eagles improved their Record to 3-4 for the Season. He made some Really Tough Runs between the tackles and Outside-Runs for Huge Gains and Many times they were on Third-And-Manageable Situations, and Dillon was Sensational in Running for a The First Down.

In this Game, Dillon finished with the Third-Best Single-Game Rushing Total in Boston College School History and the most ever by a True Freshman in Boston College School HistoryBoth Andre Williams in 2013 Against Army and Montel Harris in 2009 Against NC State Still hold the Boston College School Record with Five Rushing Touchdowns in a Single Game.

Dillon (6-1, 240, 4.49, 39, 4.19) From Groton Lawrence Academy, Massachusetts Arrived on the Boston College Campus with A Lot of Recruiting Fanfare, after Announcing that he was Choosing to go to Boston College after Verbally Committing to Michigan over Notre Dame, Florida State, Wisconsin, and Virginia.

Dillon, who is the Grandson of Former Notre Dame All-American  Wide Receiver and College Football Hall of Fame Inductee Tom Gatewood.

As a Junior, Dillon Rushed for 1,887-Yards and 26 Touchdowns with an Incredible 10.1-Yards Per Carry Average. He had already Rushed for or 1,368-Yards and 21 Touchdowns as a Sophomore.

Then an Unfortunate Thing Happened In his Fourth Game of his Senior Season, as Dillon Demolished Milton Academy for 297-Yards and Five Touchdowns, but there would not be a Fifth GameA Leg Injury Closed The Door on the Rest of The Dillon Senior Season and Made him Start Thinking About his Football Future and on December 14, Dillon Announced that he would be Attending Boston College instead of The University of Michigan.

“I had to realize that as much as I love Football, it is not a Game that is going to last forever,” Dillon said. “I sat and talked to my Parents about life without Football. I felt that Boston College was the best place for me to develop as a Student, an Athlete, and just as an overall individual. I had nothing bad to say about Michigan. I loved the school. I loved my Class and the Staff with them. I just felt that Boston College was the best place for me.”

Boston College Head Coach Steve Addazio Did Not Expect to be This-Deep at The Running Back Position, because Dillon had Originally Given a Verbal Commitment to Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh.

Then, after looking Impressive in the First Six Games, Dillon had seen his workload, In-Practice, grow over the last few weeks, but he was still Not The Primary Starting Running Back over Running Back Jon Hilliman. After Hilliman Started The Louisville Game with Two Carries for a Minus 6-Yards, Dillon Got his Chance and he Took-Over And he Took Complete Control of the Game.

“Talking about My Offensive Linemen, they did just a great job today,” said Dillon, whose Total Rushing Yards was the Most by a Boston College Running Back Since 2013 Doak Walker Award Winner Andre Williams.

“Those Linemen are just like my Brothers Up-There,” said Dillon. “Sometimes I run over to them and say, `I’m a lineman too.’ “They really put it all on the line for me Today. I can not think them enough.”

Boston College Head Coach Steve Addazio said of Dillon, “He was a beast out there.”

With this Incredible Performance,  A.J. Dillon was Selected as The Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week Award Winner and with this Honor, he became The Fifth Boston College Player to Earn The Award Since 2004. Dillon also became The First Running Back since Running Back Andre Williams in November 17, 2013.

Dillon Rushed for 272-Yards on 39 Carries and Scored Four Touchdowns. The 272-Yards Rushing in a Game are also the Fifth-Most by any Player in the Country in 2017. – 272-Yards Rushing

Image result for Karan Higdon Photos2. Running Back Karan Higdon (#22) – Michigan

Michigan Super-Star Running Back Karan Higdon was Unbelievable in the 27-20 Overtime Victory over Indiana.

Higdon (5-9, 190, 4.4) from Sarasota Riverview, Florida entered this Huge Big Ten Matchup on Saturday with only 201-Yards of Offense on the season, and he ran all over the Hoosiers, as he Rushed for 200-Yards on 25 Carries and Scored Three Touchdowns.

Higdon Accounted for nearly 74-Percent of The Michigan Rushing Yards, so it’s safe to say this was his “Breakout-Game” of The 2017 Season for the Wolverines, on a Day when the Wolverines struggled to sustain drives, even though The Great Michigan Defense did a Great Job on Defense in Leading them to a 5-1 and 1-1 Big-10 Record.

“He was Phenomenal,” Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh said. “I don’t know how many yards he got after contact, but those were tough yards. There many times that it looked like there would be a tackle for loss or a small gain or no gain, and he would get 4 or 5 yards out of it.”

Michigan Rushed 44 Times for 271-Yards, and Indiana Rushed 29 Times for 80-Yards against Indiana and Indiana had the #1 Defense in the Big-10. The Wolverines Still Out-gained The Hoosiers by 329 to 278-Yards in Total Offense.

With 10:25 Left in the Game, Higdon Raced 59-Yards for a Touchdown to-put The Wolverines ahead 20-10. “He cracked a Really Big-One for us, and he didn’t get caught behind the line,” Harbaugh said.

Higdon, then Ran 25-Yards for a Touchdown on the First Play of Overtime for No. 17 Michigan and Super Free Safety Tyree Kinnel (5-11, 201, 4.42) Intercepted a Fourth-Down Pass in the End-Zone on the Final Play of the Game as The Wolverines held off The Hoosiers 27-20 for The Victory on Saturday.

The Final Touchdown by Higdon was not well blocked. It was supposed to go to the right, but instead he cut back left and ran past a few Indiana defenders who could not change directions quickly enough.

“There was nothing there, and I had to make something happen, so I went the other way, and it was off to the races,” Higdon said.

Karan Higdon Rushed for 200-Yards on 25 Carries and Scored Three Touchdowns. – 200-Yards Rushing

ALL-PURPOSE BACK

Image result for Nyheim Hines Photos1. All-Purpose Back Nyheim Hines (#7) – NC State

North Carolina State Super All-Purpose Back Nyheim Hines was Sensational Again as he ran for an Incredible 83-Yard Touchdown and the Returned a Punt 92-Yards for another Touchdown, while Rushing for 135-Yards and a Touchdown, and Catching 2 Passes for  5-Yards, giving him 249-Yards of Total Offense and Three Touchdowns  in a 35-17 Victory of Pittsburgh.

The #20 Ranked NC State, went on the Road to Pittsburgh with a Great Chance to take Total Control of The  Atlantic Division of the ACC. Then as the Third Quarter started, The Wolfpack Started to Dominate and their Very Promising Season Started to Take Place.

Hines (5-9, 197, 4.31, 42, 4.09) from Garner, North Carolina and Fullback Jaylen Samuels (5-11, 225, 4.49) from Snellville South Gwinnett, Georgia, Scored Touchdowns in the Fourth-Quarter and The Wolfpack pulled away from Pittsburgh for a Huge 35-17 Victory on Saturday.

Hines is also a Tremendous Wolfpack Track Super-Star, and he is an Unbelievable Running Back, after Converting from Slot Receiver. In Track, Hines has run a Best 100-Meter Time of 10.4, which is a World-Class Timing.

“I told the guys in there, `We’re in the driver’s seat,” Wolfpack Head Coach Dave Doeren said. “The goal is to stay there and the way to do it is to keep doing what we’ve been doing, not listening to anybody, focusing on us and improving internally. That’s what we’ll do.”

Quarterback Ryan Finley Completed 14 of 25 Passes for 198-Yards and a 3-Yard Touchdown to Jakobi Meyers late in the third quarter to put N.C. State ahead to stay. Finley Extended his Streak of Consecutive Passes without an Interception to 313, the Second-Longest in ACC History.

The Wolfpack Outgained Pitt by nearly 100 yards in the second half and forced a pair of turnovers to turn a tie game into their sixth straight victory, matching their longest winning streak since 2002 when Quarterback Phillip Rivers was flinging passes to Jerricho Cotchery.

“That’s crazy,” Hines said. “It’s good to hear, but we’re just going to focus on NC State.”

The Wolfpack were trailing for the first time in a month when Hines stepped through a tackle at the line of scrimmage and raced 83-Yards for a Touchdown to tie The Score at 7-7. Then, Following a three-and-out by Pitt, Hines fielded a Ryan Winslow Punt and Raced 94-Yards, Untouched, into the End-Zone, the longest punt return for a score by an N.C. State player since 1926.

“The guys that blocked for him on that punt return deserve gold stars because I’ve never seen a punt returner have zero people touch him on a vertical punt return like that,” Coach Doeren said.

NFL SUPER SCOUT REPORT: Let’s Ben Honest! If you Can Run a 4.31 in the Forty, Do a 42-Inch Vertical Jump, and Run a 10.4 in the 100 Meters; you can Play on My NFL Team, but Let’s Take it a Step Further. If you can Run Straight, Up-The-Middle, on an Incredible 83-Yard Touchdown and Return and then later another Straight Up-The-Middle Punt for 92-Yards for another Touchdown in the same Game; you can still play on my NFL Team.

2. All-Purpose James Washington (#28) – Oklahoma State

All-American Wide Receiver James Washington Caught Six Passes from All-American Quarterback Mason Rudolph for an Incredible 235-Yards and a Touchdown, and he also ran for another 11-Yards and a 2-Yard Touchdown, giving him a Sensational 270-Yards of Total Offense in The Oklahoma State Cowboys 59-16 Victory over The Baylor Bears.

Both Rudolph and Washington are Seniors and they both got their First Career Victories over The Bears in Four Games. In this Game, Oklahoma State Recorded an Incredible and an Eye-Popping 747-Yards of Total Offense and Seven Touchdowns.

These Two All-Americans have been Sensational all Year and were Selected as One of our Weekly College Football MVP’s, as Rudolph was Chosen as a Weekly MVP in Weeks #2, #3, #5, and #7; while Washington was Selected as a Weekly MVP in Weeks #1 and Week #7. Both Rudolph and Washington would have also Won in Week #4, but Their Team Lost to TCU.

Washington (6-0, 195, 4.35) from Stamford, Texas was an Unheralded Recruit from a Small 2A School with a 3,000 Population. Washington, then Arrived in Stillwater and Totally Stunned The Whole Big-12 by Starting as a True Freshman.

Then, as a Sophomore, Washington became only the Fourth Oklahoma State Underclassman to finish with more than 1,000-Yards Receiving, as he Joined Justin Blackmon, Dez Bryant, and Rashaun Woods, who all Became a Consensus Cowboy All-Americans and an NFL #1 First-Round Daft Choice.

As a Junior, Washington was Ranked Second in the Big-12 Conference behind the Fred Biletnikoff Award Winner Dede Westbrook and a First Team All-Big-12 Selection.

In Six Games in 2017, Washington has Caught 32 Passes for 882-Yards and has Averaged an Incredible 27.56-Yards Per Catch. He has also Tied an Oklahoma State School Record with his Third Career 200-Yard Pass Receiving Game.

And Now, as a Senior, Washington is The Favorite and is on a Short-List to Win The Prestigious Fred Biletnikoff Award as the #1 Wide Receiver in the Country.

“I think it was Really Important to the whole team,” Washington said. “Since I’ve been here, we’ve never beat Baylor, so going into this game, I felt like we had a Chip on our Shoulder, and we just really wanted to get a win from them.”

Washington is an Unbelievable Athlete and he has an Uncanny Ability to Run by a Defender, make the Defender Miss the Tackle, and then Run into the End-Zone,” said Head Coach Mike Gundy.

NFL SUPER SCOUT REPORT: James Washington is Without a Doubt, a 2018 NFL #1 Draft Choice and he is in a Position to become the #1 Selection in the NFL Draft.

After the game, Oklahoma State Head Coach Mike Gundy Jokingly said that he was trying to send a Waiver to the NCAA to get Washington an extra year of Eligibility.237-Yards of Total Offense

3. All-Purpose D.J. Chark (#7) – LSU

The LSU Football Team is on its way Back and with so many Super-Stars on their Team, it is Still Very Hard to Overlook All-Purpose Potential All-American D.J. Chark on Offense and Linebacker Devin White on Defense.

This Week also just happens to be Both Super-Stars Second MVP Selection, as Chark was Selected as one of our MVP’s in Week Two and Week Seven; while White was Selected in Week Six and Week Seven. How Ironic is it that both Chark and White were also Selected as SEC Offense and Defense Players of the Week for Week Seven.

With about 14-Minutes Left in the Game and The Auburn Tigers Winning 23-14. Chark Lined-Up to Return a Punt and The LSU Crowd was Pretty Calm and Praying for a Miracle. Then, all of a sudden, Chark Caught the Football on the 25-Yard Line, Back-Tracked about Six-Yards and Started Running Toward the Left Sideline, where a Great Punt Return Wall had Formed.

Once Chark got to the Sideline, The LSU Crowd Started to get Louder and Louder and Continued for 11.87 Seconds until he Reached the End-Zone to Make the Score 23-21 with 14:33 Left in the Game. Then, it got even Louder and Louder; while Making Tiger Stadium Shake and Continue to Shake after LSU Kicker Connor Culp Kicked the Winning 42-Yard Field Goal with 2:36 Left in the Game and then he Kicked another 36-Yard Insurance Field Goal with 38-Seconds Left in the Game to make the Final Score 27-23 and an LSU Victory.

I live about 15-Miles from The LSU Stadium and on Saturday Night on this Historic Night, I really believe that I was Still Hearing the LSU Crowd Hours after this Historic LSU Game and Victory.

“We’re just becoming a Great Football Team. Our whole staff is galvanized. Our football team is galvanized,” LSU Head Coach, and My Friend, Ed Orgeron said. “We were going to be resilient. We were not going to give up. We were going to block out the noise and we were going to fix the things that were fixable.”

The LSU Defense improved dramatically in the second half, when it allowed no points and just 64-Yards. That enabled LSU (5-2, 2-1) to Win with Special Teams Play.

Defensive Coordinator “Dave Aranda had ice in his veins tonight,” Orgeron said. “We made some mistakes very early. Other people would have tended to quit. Not us.”

Russell Gage made a Spectacular Diving 14-Yard Touchdown Catch and had he also had a 70-Yard Run that Set-Up another Touchdown in the First-Half, as LSU Closed the Gap to 23-14 to set up a Very Tense Finish.

NFL SUPER SCOUT REPORT: D.J. Chark is an Extremely Explosive and Speedy Wide Receiver who “Can-Score” anytime that he “Touches the Football” and he is the LSU “Go-To” Receiver in 2017. With his Great Combination of Great Speed, Great Pass Route-Running, and Tremendous Pass-Catching Abilities makes him one of the Best Wide Receivers in the Country in College Football. Chark is a Definite #1 NFL Draft Choice.

Chark (6-3, 198, 4.32, 40, 4.02) from Alexander, Louisiana is also a Very Versatile Athlete and he is the Only LSU Player in LSU History To Score on a Running Play and a Passing Play of 75-Yards or More. He Scored on an Incredible 79-Yard Touchdown Run in his “First-Career-Touch” in the 2015 Texas Bowl Victory over Texas Tech and then he Caught an 80-Yard Touchdown Pass against Southern Miss in 2016.

Before the 2017 Season Started, Chark had 26 Career Receptions for 466-Yards and Three Touchdowns. He also had Added Another 201-Yards Rushing and Three More Touchdowns. Chark Now has averaged 21.1-Yards Per-Catch on his 48 career catches and he is a Huge Big-Play Threat. In order to Completely Utilize his Versatility, Chark has just Changed his Jersey Number from #82 for the Last Two Seasons to #7 for the 2017 Season.

In this Historic Game and Historic Victory, Chark Caught Five Passes for 150-Yards and  Returned Two Punts for 83-Yards and a Touchdown, giving him 233-Yards of Total Offense. 233-Yards of Total Offense

4. All-Purpose Back Jonathan Taylor – Wisconsin

Super True Freshman Running Back Jonathan Taylor had Another Sensational Game in Leading The Badgers to a 17-9 Victory over Purdue as he Rushed for 219-Yards and a Touchdown. Taylor also Caught One Pass for another 17-Yards, giving him 236-Yards of Total Offense in the Victory.

The Wisconsin Offense Stumbled after a fast start, but then Finished Strong in typical Wisconsin Fashion and The Great Badger Defense Maintained Complete Control  throughout the Game.

Taylor (5-11, 214) from Salem, New Jersey Ran for 219-Yards on 30 carries, including a Beautiful 67-Yard Touchdown Run that Shocked The Wisconsin Stadium and Then The Badgers Relied on its Stifling Super Defense to overcome Three-Turnovers to beat Purdue 17-9 on Saturday.

Quarterback Alex Hornibrook Completed 13 of 18 Passes for 199-Yards and a Touchdown, but he also threw two Interceptions for the Badgers, (6-0 and 3-0 in the Big-10) who held on to beat another Division Rival and take a Commanding Lead in the Big Ten West, with their Great Defense That Saved the Game.

Is LSU Running Back Derrius Guice Back In The Heisman Trophy Race? By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Is LSU Running Back Derrius Guice Back In The Heisman Trophy Race?
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for Derrius Guice PhotosBack in The Heisman – Derrius Guice (#5) – LSU

October 22, 2017

LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron probable gave us some Real Insight, earlier in the weekas to what the New LSU Offensive Game Plans might be in The Upcoming Game in Oxford against Ole Miss.

On The Ed Orgeron Weekly Radio Talk Show, an LSU Caller asked if The Tigers might be going to use more of the Short Passes in their Offensive Game Plan.Derrius Guice will be able to Go Full-Speed for the First Time this Season and he does a Great Job in Catching the Football Out of the Backfield,” said Coach Orgeron.

This was a Great Response that “The Guice” was going to be Carrying the Football a lot more and by either Carrying the Football or Catching the Football, Guice was going to be a Much-More Offensive Force, much like The Force at the End of the 2016 Season, when he “Put-Up” some Incredible Stats.

So what just Happened in Oxford?

Derrius Guice Ran for an Incredible Season-High 276-Yards and was Virtually Unstoppable in Leading The LSU Tigers to a Crushing 40-24 Victory over The Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday night.

In the Ole Miss Victory, Guice Actually Put his LSU Single-Game Rushing Record of 285-Yards Against Texas A&M Last Season in Jeopardy, after Three Quarters. Guice was in “Striking-Distance” of his Own LSU Record and also The SEC Single-Game Rushing Record of 321-Yards, but Guice was “Saving-These-Records” for Later This Year.

Actually, “The Guice” did not Break those Two Records, but he Still Broke another Rushing Record when he became the First Player in SEC History to Rush for 250-Yards or more in Three Straight Games. When you are Playing in a Conference that Includes Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, Leonard Fournette, and Several Others; this is an Incredible and Shocking Accomplishment.

LSU (6-2 and 3-1 in the SEC) has Won Three Straight Games and Quarterback Danny Etling also had his Best Game of the Season as he Completed 9 of 13 Passes for 200-Yards and Two Touchdowns.

This Game was More than “Just a Victory” for Coach Ed Orgeron, because he was the Ole Miss Head Coach for three Football Seasons from 2005-07.

Guice  (5-11, 218, 4.36, 36, 4.26) Rushed for 126-Yards in the First Half, which was already good enough for his Season-High. It was the biggest reason The Tigers had a 13-6 Lead by Half-Time and the he was far from Finished.

Ole Miss (3-4 and 1-3 in the SEC) came into the game with the Most Prolific Passing Offense, in the SEC, but struggled for pretty much the whole Night against The Great LSU Defense.

Ole Miss Super-Star Quarterback Shea Patterson Came into the Game Leading the SEC  with 2,143-Yards Passing, but he hurt his Right Knee in the Second Quarter and did not  play the final series of the First Half. He returned in the second half, but The Rebels Offense did not fare much better.

Is Heisman Trophy Candidate Derrius Guice Better Than Leonard Fournette?
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

July 7, 2017

It’s Pretty Unbelievable, that a Major College Football Team could have a Heisman Trophy Candidate at the Same Running Back Position for Three Consecutive Years, but after having Leonard Fournette as a Heisman Candidate in 2015 and 2016, LSU will have another Heisman Trophy Running Back Candidate in Derrius Guice (#5 in Photo) in 2017. I also saw both of these High School All-American Running Backs play in High School and they both were Phenomenal Phenoms in Every Single Game that they Played-In.

Fournette and Guice were also the Best Player on the Football Field in Every Single Game, that they Played-In and Obviously they have been the Best Player on the Football Field in College. Oh Wait! Except when they were both on the Field at the same time for LSU.

I met Fournette of New Orleans St Augustine High School, after his Fabulous High School Freshman Football Season in which he Rushed for an Incredible 2,500-Yards and Scored 30 Touchdowns. Also, Fournette became the First Freshman Football Player to be offered a Scholarship by the LSU Tigers, and he Finished his High School Career with an Amazing 7,619-Yards and 88 Touchdowns.

Then, after Signing with LSU, as possibly the #1 Player in the 2014 Recruiting Class, Fournette quickly became a Household Name, during his Freshman Season when he Rushed for over 1,000-Yards and Scored 10 Touchdowns.

Super Running Backs #5 Derrius Guice and  Leonard Fournette #7 

In 2015, as an LSU Sophomore, the Tigers started off with a 7-0 Record and they were Ranked in the Top 5 in the Country, with Fournette leading the way as their Heisman Trophy Candidate, but Alabama Completely Stopped-Him, but he still Finished with Outstanding Numbers with 1,953-Yards Rushing and 23 Touchdowns.

Heading into the 2016 Football Season, most all of the talk Around the SEC and about the LSU Tigers and their Backfield was whether or not Leonard Fournette should or would Sit-Out the Football Season to preserve himself for the 2017 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, Fournette decided to play Football in his 2016 Junior Football Season and it was completely Riddled by Nagging Injuries, but an Unbelievable New Super-Star Emerged for the Tigers.

At the End of the 2016 Football Season, The New Super-Star, Derrius Guice wasn’t only the best Running Back on his own LSU Football Team; but he just might be the best Running Back in the Entire Country.

If you look at the 2016 Football Season and compare the Two Running Backs, you can see that it would be a very close call. Fournette and Guice both Started Six Games in that 2016 Season. Guice Averaged 7.6-Yards Per Carry; while Fournette Averaged 6.5-Yards Per Carry. This was Very Close and you must remember that both of these Super-Stars were being “Keyed-On” on every single play.

In his Six Games, Guice also Set an LSU Single-Game Rushing Record and also scored 15 Touchdowns; while Fournette Scored Eight Touchdowns.  With these Incredible Stats, Guice finished the 2016 Season as one of the Best Running Backs in the Country.

Another Intriguing Comparion between Fournette and Guice is very Interesting. Fournette missed four games in 2016 and in those four games, Guice Rushed for 765-Yards and he had almost as many Yards as Fournette had in his Entire 2016 Season.

Then, in the 2016 Citrus Bowl Game, Guice Rushed for 138-Yards, including a Beautiful 70-Yard Touchdown Run and he also caught a Touchdown Pass as the #20 LSU Tigers UPSET #13 Louisville Cardinals, by a 29-9 Score and their Heisman Trophy Award Winning Quarterback Lamar Jackson. In that Game, Guice Completely “Over-Shadowed” Jackson, who was also Sacked Eight Times by the Super Tiger Defense and the Cards did not Score a Touchdown.

Another Fact about Fournette and Guice is that these Two Running Backs are Two of the Most Impressive Physical Specimen Freaks in the Country in the Weight Room.

As a True Sophomore, Guice will not be Eligible for the 2017 NFL Draft, but he would be Eligible for the 2018 NFL Draft. Guice did, however, already look like a Typical #1 Draft Choice. As a Freshman in 2015, Guice, playing behind Fournette, showed flashes of his Dynamic Running Back Ability, carrying the ball only 51 Times, but Averaging an Incredible 8.5-Yards Per Carry. Then in 2016, he maintained a similar Average Per Carry, but then he Took-Over the Running Back Load from Fournette and Totally Led the Great LSU Tiger Offense.

So now, The “Heisman-Talk” about Derrius Guice!

In his Career, Guice has Racked-Up 1,249-Yards on just 157 Carries, and Scored 14 Touchdowns. He’s also Rushed for 150-Yards five times in the 2016 Season, including Two Performances of more than 250-Yards in Three Games. Regarding that last stat, Guice is in Pretty Great Company:

View image on TwitterBo Jackson #34, Herschel Walker #34, Moe Williams #10, and Derrius Guice #5 Are The only SEC Players in History to have Multiple 250-Yard Rushing Games!

The latest Super Guice Game was Thanksgiving Night in College Station, with Millions of Fans Watching, against Texas A&M, Guice broke Fournette’s freshly set LSU School Record for Single-Game Rushing-Yards, as he Rushed for 285-Yards and a Career-High Four Touchdowns, as the Tigers rolled to a 54-39 Victory over Texas A&M.

2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPER 16 MVP’S FOR WEEK SIX By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2017 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPER
16 MVP’S FOR WEEK SIX
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

In Week Six, I have Set some New Guidelines for the MVP Players as Follows: Quarterbacks: 350-Yards of Offense – Running Backs: 175-Yards – Wide Receivers: 175-Yards – All-Purpose Backs: 175-Yards – Defensive Line: 2 Sacks and 2 TFL – Linebacker: 10 Tackles, 1 Sacks – Defensive Back: 6 Tackles, and 2 Interceptions

WEEK SIX SCOUTING NOTES: I have been “In-Football” for Over Six Decades and This Year, in Week Six of College Football, there were Some of the Most Unusual and Most Amazing Performances that I have ever seen or even ever heard-of in any Football Classification.

One True Freshman Quarterback Started his Third Game of his Career and Recorded 487-Yards of Total OffenseAnother Quarterback, who had Never Started a College Football Game, went-into the Game after The Starter got hurt in the First Quarter and he Rushed for 327-Yards and Scored Four Touchdowns and Passed for a Fifth Touchdown and Ended-Up with 481-Yards of Total Offense. 

And then, a True Freshman Running Back in the Big-10 Rushed for 249-Yards and a Two-Way Star in the Big-12 Recorded 8 Tackles, Passed for 25-Yards, Rushed for 35-Yards, Recorded a Sack, Recovered a Fumble, and was Voted The National Walter Camp Defensive Player of The Week.

OFFENSE

True Freshman Quarterback Sam Ehlinger, Not Only Started his Third Game of his University of Texas Football Career, but he “Put-Everyone” on Both Sides of Royal Memorial Stadium in Complete Shock. He Put Them in Shock by Passing for 380-Yards and Rushing for another 107-Yards, Giving him an Unbelievable and Incredible 487-Yards of Total Offense in Leading The Texas Longhorns to a 40-34 Victory over Rival Big-12 Kansas State.

Ehlinger (6-2, 230, 4.71, 31, 4.55) of Austin Westlake Completed 30 of 50 Passes for 380-Yards and two Touchdowns and then he Shocked Everyone in the Stadium when he Rushed for another 107 yards, using his legs for Huge Yardage Gains with his Legs on the Game-Tying Drive in the Fourth Quarter and to help Set-Up the Game-Winning Touchdown in The Second Overtime. Ehlinger also Actually Helped-Move the Pile.

Actually, On The Longhorns Second Play of the Second Overtime, Ehlinger Steamrolled Kansas State Strong Safety Denzel Goolsby to End a 9-Yard Run that set up the Chris Warren Game-Winning Touchdown Run. Then on that Play, Bullish Running Back Chris Warren III (6-4, 250, 4.6) of Rockwall, Texas Bulled-His-Way and Scored the Winning Touchdown on a Two-Yard Run when he Moved the Pile of Kansas State Would-Be Tacklers Across the Goal Line, with the help from Ehlinger, Giving the Longhorns their 40-34 Victory on Saturday night.

It First Appeared Like Warren Would to be Stopped Short, but he Refused to go down without Scoring and kept pushing his 250-Pounds forward as he was Helped by a push of the pile by his teammates, including Ehlinger. Warren then Plowed into the End-Zone for the Winning Touchdown, taking several Wildcat Tacklers with him.

The Tone was set from a Lowered-Shoulder and a Staring-Glare. Whatever you needed out of a True Freshman Quarterback in just only his Third-Career Start for The Texas Longhorns, Sam Ehlinger was going to give it to you.

“We got a Big Push and we won the physical battle,” Ehlinger said.

The Texas Longhorn Offense is growing up behind Ehlinger, who is now 2-1 as a Texas Starting Quarterback and he looks like he is getting better and better and More Comfortable on every Passing Situation. While The Longhorns have said Former Starting Quarterback Shane Buechele has been Plagued by Shoulder and Ankle Injuries this season, but Ehlinger is becoming the Texas Team Leader of the Longhorns Offense and gives them a Powerful Extra Running Dimension on Offense when his plays break down.

Sam Ehlinger is a tough, tough kid,” Texas Head Coach Tom Herman said. “He made a lot of Freshman Mistakes, but he overcomes them with toughness and tenacity and he will do Whatever it Takes to Win.”

“When we went into Overtime, I told the Offense, that We have been here before, this is just like Southern Cal,” Coach Herman said. “I think it was Patrick Vahe who looked at me and said, ‘Yeah, except we’re going to win it this time, Coach.”

Ehlinger is Fearless and that puts Fear into the Defense,” Linebacker Malik Jefferson said. “It’s like, Oh My God this Freshman Quarterback is running with his head down. And he’s kind of massive. You come meet Sam, you’ve got to come hit him for real.”

“I’m not going to think about the decision of who is going to play Quarterback next week until I watch the film and see how healthy Shane Buechele is,” Herman said.

When College Football Fans got-up on Sunday Morning and Read the College Football News, They were Unbelievably In Shock when they Read About the Heroics of Sam Ehlinger, but that was only if they Read about the Texas Longhorns First. If They Read about the Arizona Wildcats Victory over Colorado, First, then they might have been in Even Greater Total Shock.

In The Arizona and Colorado Game, Arizona Starting Quarterback Brandon Dawkins Started the Game, but he Received a Late-Hit, Out of Bounds, on the Wildcats Opening Drive and Came Out of the Game. Then, a Rarely-Used, Unknown, Backup Named Khalil Tate Came-In and Replaced him.

What Happened Next was either a Miracle or the Wrong Guy has been The Starting Quarterback, because Dawkins Stood on the sideline for the rest of the game with his helmet in his hand as The Guy Named Tate Ran the Arizona Offense with a Sensational Perfection.

The Colorado Head Coach had a simple request after the game. “Could someone Please Tackle #14 for Arizona?” Colorado Head Coach Mike MacIntyre said.

Well, the Colorado Buffaloes did not Tackle #14 Very Many Times, because Tate Rushed for 327-Yards, which is an FBS All-Time Record by a Quarterback, and he Accounted for Five Touchdowns to help Arizona hold off Colorado 45-42 on Saturday night.

Tate (6-2, 215, 4.42) of Gardena Junipero Serra, California had Touchdown Runs of 58, 28, 47 and 75-Yards. He also Carried the Football only 14 Times, but Scored Four Touchdowns and Averaged a Completely, Mind-Boggling 23.4-Yards Per Carry. Tate also Completed another Eye-Popping 12 of 13 Passes for 154-Yards, and a Touchdown, Giving him a 481-Yards of Total Offense. The Wildcats won at Boulder Folsom Field for a Third Straight Game on a night when both Offenses combined for 1,118-Yards of Total Offense.

Tate was Hardly Touched all night, much-less Tackled, if at all. Asked if he was Ever Tackled, he grinned and responded: “A couple of times.”

He had been Previously Hampered by a Sprained Shoulder. Once in the game, and back to 100 Percent, Tate quickly Made-Up for Lost Time by “Breaking the Record” by a Quarterback on his Final Run of the Night which was a 31-Yard Touchdown Run that also Sealed the Victory. The Quarterback Record was Held by Quarterback Jordan Lunch of Northern Illinois, who Rushed-For 321-Yards on November 26, 2013.

The Arizona Wildcats Record for Rushing Yards in a Single Game is Still held by Quarterback Ka’Deem Carey, who Rushed-For 366-Yards in 2012 Against Colorado.

“We didn’t even know his Jersey Number, to be quite honest,” said Colorado Defensive Back Ryan Moeller. The Buffaloes certainly do Know now.

“He should be National Player of the Week,” Colorado Head Coach MacIntyre said. “He’s a Phenomenal Player.”

Arizona Head Coach Rich Rodriguez indicated after the Colorado Game that Tate would start against UCLA on Saturday. Tate Essentially gave him No Choice.

SUPER SCOUT NFL SCOUTING REPORT: Khalil Tate is a Spread Athletic Quarterback, but he is a Run-First and Pass Second Spread Quarterback. Tate is Listed as 6-2 and 215 on most Sites. On all of his Hudl Measurable Recordings, he Did Not Record a Great Forty Time, but if you Evaluate him on his High School and College Highlight Film, it is Obvious that he is One of the Fastest Players on the Football Field. On his 2015 High School Highlights, Tate had Touchdown Runs of 47, 45, 87, 82, and 62-Yards. And in this Game, he had Touchdown Runs of 58, 28, 47 and 75-Yards.

Tate is an Unbelievable, Super Athlete with Great Speed, Quickness, and an even More Incredible Lateral AgilityTate also has the Great Ability to Gain Huge Chunks of Yardage on Planned and Designed Quarterback Runs, because he has the Uncanny Ability To-Make Defenders Completely Miss-Him. In the Highlights, he looks like he is Looking to Make Contact.

This May Not be What an NFL Team is Looking-For in a Quarterback, but Tate Would be Perfect, if that NFL Team needs a Quarterback in that Situation. Tate also is Uncanny in how he Makes Pass-Rushers Miss-Him in the Pocket. When needed, Tate can a Put a Nice-Zip on the Ball when Throwing, but he can Improve his Overall Passing Mechanics.

Having a Quarterback who is Looking to Run, instead of Pass, will not Work for Most College or NFL Teams, but it worked Great For Coach Rich Rodriguez at West Virginia when he had Super Athletic Quarterback Pat White Running his Offense. Tate Makes a Much Better Fit for Arizona than he might would make at a Lot of Other Football Programs. The Same May be True for the Right NFL Team.

On Sunday, The Walter Camp Football Foundation Named Tate as its its National Offensive Player of the Week and also CBS Sports Named Tate as Their National Player of the Week. Then On Monday, Tate was Named as The Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week. – 481-Yards of Total Offense

Memphis Super-Star Quarterback Riley Ferguson only Played-In The First Three Quarters, but he Completed 34 of 48 Passes for 431-Yards and an Incredible Seven Touchdowns in their 70-31 Victory over U-Conn, which is the Most Points That The Huskies have given up since the school started playing football in 1896.

The Incredible Seven Touchdown Passes by Ferguson Tied the Memphis School Record and American Athletic Conference Record of Quarterback Paxton Lynch. Ferguson Completed 26 of 37 Passes for 325-Yards and Five Touchdowns, in the First Half Alone, as the Tigers Recorded an Unbelievable 711-Yards of Total Offense.

Ferguson, a Transfer from Tennessee, Found His Favorite Wide Receiver, Anthony Miller, Early and Often all Friday Night and Setting Records in the ProcessMiller also had an Incredible 15 Catches for 224-Yards for Memphis and The American Athletic Conference. The Four Touchdown Catches by Miller Tied The AAC Conference Record and also The Memphis School Record.

Ferguson (6-3, 210, 4.72) (#4) and Miller (5-11, 190, 4.42) (#3) Connected on scores from 17, 8, and 40-Yards in the First Half, and the Tigers went into Half-Time Leading 35-24. Memphis then Scored the First 28 Points in the Second Half, and it was Highlighted by a 32-Yard Catch from Miller over a Defensive Back in the back of the End-Zone.

“Ever since I’ve gotten here, that’s a guy who has stayed with me after practice and we throw every single day,” Ferguson said. “I think just on a daily basis our chemistry is building even more than it already is.”

SIDEBAR: University of Memphis Quarterback Riley Ferguson has not one, but two artistic arms. The Senior from Charlotte has adorned himself, Shoulder to Mid-forearm, with ink in various symbols, shapes, and swirls. But he has a favorite on his left (non-throwing) biceps. It’s an ornate cross, surrounded by six words: “May your light shine over me.” The art tugs at Ferguson’s Heart, as it pays tribute to a Cousin that he lost in 2016, shortly before his first season behind center for the Tigers. But there’s a message, too, that Ferguson’s Memphis School of choice and its Football Team’s growing fan base, might appreciate, for Ferguson himself has shone brightly since arriving on The University of Memphis Campus.

Ferguson Completed 34 of 48 Passes for 431-Yards and an Incredible Seven Touchdowns. – 431-Yards Passing

Image result for ryan finley photo4. Quarterback Ryan Finley (#15) – NC State

Super Senior Quarterback Ryan Finley of North Carolina State had a Unbelievable Outstanding Game on Thursday as he Completed 20 of 31 Passes for 367-Yards and a Touchdown in a Huge 39-25 UPSET Victory over Louisville Cardinals. Finley also Rushed For another Nineteen-Yards, giving him 386-Yards of Total Offense.

Finley, Very Quietly, Put-Up some of the Best numbers of any Quarterback in the ACC and in 2017, there are some Incredible Quarterbacks in the ACC Competition. And then, another One of the Most Impressive things was that he did it Against a Very Impressive Louisville Defense.

All of these Outstanding Facts may not even be the Most Impressive, but what may Still be the Most Impressive “Things” about The Quarterbacking of Finley is that he Still Has Not Thrown an Interception in 2017 yet. In Fact, No other Quarterback in the ACC Since 2000 has thrown for 1,700-Yards, with 10+ Touchdowns and No Interceptions Through the First Six Games.

Finley has just Moved-Into Second Place in The Atlantic Coast Conference History with his Incredible Streak of 288 Straight Pass Completions Without an Interception, and Second only to NCAA and North Carolina State Record-Holder, Russell Wilson.

I Honestly Think that NC State Quarterback Ryan Finley is Not Getting as Much Credit or as much Publicity as he Deserves for the way that he is Playing and he Has Lead his Team to a Great 3-0 Record in the ACC. Other Wolfpack Super-Stars like Bradley Chubb, Jaylen Samuels, and Nyheim Hines have Received a Lot of Attention and although they Deserve every bit of their Attention and Credit, Finley is playing at an Unbelievable Super Elite Level that has not been Played in a Very Long Time and Maybe NEVER.

There were 43 NFL Scouts at the Game on Thursday Night Against Louisville, and they were not there just to see Bradley Chubb and Lamar Jackson. You Can Bet that All 43 of Those NFL Scouts were there to see Ryan Finley and Believed and Fully Realized that they were watching a Future NFL Super-Star Quarterback.

This is also the First 3-0 Start in the Atlantic Coast Conference Games for the Wolfpack since 2002. And with Early Victories over both Florida State and Louisville, the Preseason Dark-HorseWolfpack, in the Atlantic Division have Already Beaten Two of the Teams that were Selected to Finish-Higher in the League Standings and they are now in Position to Challenge Clemson. Another strong game should come next week when NC State Travels to Pittsburgh.

Finley Directed a Great Passing Attack that included Two 100-Yard  Receivers and a third Receiver who finished with 99 yards.

Sophomore Wide Receiver Kelvin Harmon (6-3, 213, 4.52) Caught 6 Passes for 133-Yards and a Touchdown; while Senior Fullback Jaylen Samuels (5-11, 223, 4.56) Caught 7 Passes for 104-Yards. Junior Wide Receiver Stephen Louis (6-2, 217, 4.56) also Caught 3 Passes for 99-Yards.

Nyheim Hines (5-9, 197, 4.31) was also Sensational as he Rushed for 102-Yards and Two Touchdowns to go with Two Catches from Finley for 15-Yards and Four Kickoff Returns for another 105-Yards, giving him 222-Yards of All-Purpose Yards.

Then there was The Fabulous Wolfpack Defensive Front-Four Led by My All-American Defensive End Bradley Chubb that kept Continuous Pressure on 2016 Heisman Trophy Award Winner Lamar Jackson. Jackson ran for Two Touchdowns and he Passed for another Touchdown, but The Great Wolfpack Defense Sacked him Four Times and the Wolfpack Secondary got a Clinching Interception Return for a Touchdown late to close out the Cardinals.

Simply put, Chubb is a Real Beast. He Recorded Two Quarterback Sacks in a win over Syracuse a Couple Weeks ago and then Another Two quarterback Sacks in a win over Florida State.  In this Game, Chubb had 6 Tackles, including One Sack, 2 Tackles for a Loss, and Three Quarterback Hurries. 

For his Six-Game SeasonChubb has 35 Tackles, including 17 Solo Tackles, 6 1/2 Quarterback Sacks, 13 Tackles for a Loss, and 19 Quarterback Hurries. Chubb is a an Unbelievable Disruptive Beast for the Wolfpack and You will Hear his name Called Early in the First Round of The NFL Draft in April.

Finley Completed 20 of 31 Passes for 367-Yards and a Touchdown and Rushed for another Nineteen-Yards, giving him 386-Yards of Total Offense. Finley also Recorded a Great 174.6 Quarterback Rating386-Yards of Total Offense

Milton hit open Receivers for Touchdowns of 54-Yards and 79-Yards on the First Two Knights Possessions, taking advantage of The Bearcats Vulnerability against his Long Passes. Instead of going for the Early-Running Game, The Knights Threw Deep Passes. Milton Finished the Game with Touchdown Passes of 54, 79, 21, 41, and 22-Yards.

Super-Star Wide Receiver Tre’Quan Smith (6-1, 205, 4.42) of Delray Beach, Florida Caught Three Incredible Touchdown Passes of 79, 41, and 22-Yards, For 165-Yards, and he ran for another Touchdown.

I didn’t expect anything like this at all,” said Smith, who Scored on the Three Touchdown Catches. McKenzie Found me Every Time I was Running In-the-Clear.

The Knights had the Football Eight Times and Scored Seven Touchdowns and a Field Goal. They were ready to keep on going until Terrible Lightning Storms and Heavy Rain moved in with About 4-Seconds left in the Third Quarter and The Game was Called, after a One-Hour Delay with More Bad Weather on the Way.

“Nobody wanted the weather to determine the game,” said Smith,  “I know Cincinnati wanted to Keep-On playing. We also wanted to keep playing, too.”

The Knights moved into the Top 25 with a 40-13 Victory over Memphis. Then, They Carried their momentum on the road to Cincinnati by scoring touchdowns on their first three possessions.

Playing as a Top 25 Ranked Team for the First Time since 2013, The Knights were Just About Unstoppable.

“Our Offense played about as well as an Offense can perform tonight,” Said Head Coach Scott Frost.

Central Florida has a 4-0 Record for the First Time since 1988, when the Knights were in Division II. The Knights failed to win a game two years ago, and they went 6-7 in the First Season for Coach Frost. Now, The Complete Turnaround is Complete.

“I think our team as a whole is coming together, playing together,” Milton said. “We have more of an edge than we did last year. We saw what we could exploit and we took some shots early and often.”

Milton Completed an Incredible 16 of 19 Passes for 374-Yards and a Career-High Five Touchdowns. Milton also Rushed for Six-Yards, giving him 380-Yards of Total Offense. – 380-Yards of Total Offense

“It’s definitely surprising, but the guys give me so much confidence,” Taylor said. “I know I have to do my job and trust the guys to do theirs. We kind of pride ourselves on being the spark of the offense, the running back group. I wanted to be that guy that gave us the spark.”

What Taylor did was all too familiar for The CornhuskersBall and Gordon each Rushed For Over 200-Yards against them in the 2012 Big Ten Championship game. In 2014, Gordon ran for a Then-NCAA Record 408-Yards against The Huskers. Dare Ogunbowale had 100-Yard Games the last Two Years against Nebraska.

The 249-Yards by Taylor were the Third-Most Yards Rushing ever by a Nebraska Opponent. His night was also Highlighted by a 75-Yard Touchdown Run.

Penny is not from Las Vegas, but he has a lot of Teammates who are from Las Vegas and he knew that “Big Game” in Las Vegas was going to be a Very Emotional Game on the Football Field for His #19 San Diego State Football Team.

Donning “Vegas Strong”  Eye-Strips, Penny had a Sensational Football Game, as he Rushed for 172-Yards and Two Touchdowns to Lead his Aztecs to a 41-10 Victory over Nevada Las Vegas on Saturday Night.

This Football Game was the First Game for the Rebels since the Horrible Terrorist Mass Shooting that killed 58 people on the Las Vegas Strip Last Week and Balloons were  Released from the Field, during a “Moment of Silence” just before the Start of the Game.

“I’m still Very Emotional about that Moment,” Penny said. “I played Emotional Tonight, because it doesn’t matter where it happens. It’s still in The United States of America. For a man to take that so many lives like that, it hurt.”

Penny (5-11, 220, 4.42, 36, 4.22) of Norwalk, California, did not get off to an Great Start, as he Fumbled on the Aztecs First Possession, but he then “Got-Going” and was Unstoppable for the Rest of the Game. At Half-Time, the Rebels only Trailed The Aztecs by a Few Points, but they could not get anything going Offensively in the Second Half.  Juwan Washington (5-7, 190, 4.33, 36, 4.13) of Kennedale, Texas added 95-Yards on 10 Carries and a Touchdown for the Aztecs, who have Won 27 of their Last 30 Games.
