    ECU Recruiting Class of 2022

    Class of 2022 Introducing the Future Pirates of Tomorrow The final deadline for high school recruits and their commitments for where they will be attending school in the fall is Saturday at midnight. ECU for the most part looks like they are done on the recruiting trail. A few minor players remain on their board, but no one of any significant importance. The Coaching staff have spent the last few months calling, traveling, harassing, and making every sort of promise they could make to get the biggest, and best players to sign on. They did a pretty damn good job of it to. For the second year in a row, they will have a top thirty class(Officially Ended With 26th Ranking). Further more, they managed to snag a vital piece again this season from junior college transfers. As we look at some of the big names they manage to get this season, we see another big focus on defense, with nice additions on offense. K Brian McLane Southeast Raleigh (Raleigh, NC) 1.0 of 5.0 ECU has had some great kickers over the years. W.K. Coffman, Robbie Fitzpatric, and soon, Brian McLane. McLane comes to East Carolina out of Southeast Raleigh High School. Does that high school sound familiar? It should as it has given ECU several players including Defensive Tackle Nico Russ, Safety Jayden Woods, Guard John Dolan as well as a few recruits this season we will mention. It is safe to say Head Coach Weeze and Southeast Raleigh High School coach, jim jimmerson, have developed a good relationship. McLane accepted the scholarship to play football over other scholarships to play soccer. A soccer star in high school, the all county honor athlete was also a record setter for FG in high school. He comes into college with great accuracy on his kicks, though he still needs to develop that long range muscle. Look for McLane to Redshirt this season behind Douglas Cisneros, a transfer last off season. If he stays at ECU all five seasons, he could easily be the next record breaker for Field goals and extra points. TE Will Sorensen Davie County (Mocksville, NC) 1.0 of 5.0 Will Sorensen, out of Davie County High School in Mockville North Carolina, was a surprise signing by East Carolina. A few weeks earlier, ECU signed Bryan Munnerlyn, a 4.5 star Tight End. Still, at 6-2, 208 pounds, look for this man to split time at receiver. Munnerlyn seems to have the edge with his ability to block, but Sorensen has the speed, and the length to be a down the field weapon that modern dat NFL franchises are looking for. Kyler Wilson will need these type of target as his era of ECU football is rapidly approaching. With the TE group being a little jumbled with young talent already, look for Sorensen to start out at WR first, before making the transition over to TE if he isn't red shirted this coming season. DT Rory McLaughlin South Point (Belmont, NC) 1.5 of 4.5 With the Senior Mateo Graf-Hart leaving at the end of this season, and Liam Childers leaving next season, the Pirates needed a big man. A fat man to plug up that middle. Defensive Tackle Rory McLaughlin was long thought to be headed to NC State. Some how the Pirates staff and scouts got in his ears to change that. The Man flipped and is now coming to Greenville North Carolina and we couldn't be more thrilled. With two Great Edge rushers signed, and now with a great player to plug the middle, look for the Pirates to improve their poor run defense, as well as improve their pass rush. A big time stud at South Point High School in Belmont North Carolina, he will be the first big time Defensive tackle ECU has had since Jeffery Bryant in 2014. TE Bryan Munnerlyn Eastern Guilford (Gibsonville, NC) 1.0 of 4.5 We mentioned Bryan Munnerlyn a little earlier. Coming out of Eastern Guilford High School, he was easily one of the top two tight ends in the state of North Carolina. If Sorensen was the best receiving tight end, Munnerlyn is the best blocking Tight end. ECU landed both. At 6-1, 244 pounds, Bryan Munnerlyn played with a nasty attitude. He used his size, and brute strength to over power, and clear the lanes for his teammates. While he is a capable pass catcher, he doesn't have the speed, or the hands of other pass catchers. His strength and size has been a be factor for him so far, but at the next level he will have to improve his technical skills. Look for Bryan Munnerlyn to redshirt his first season as Omar Stauffer will be entering his senior season and has played very well so far. FB Joshua Cornelius Fort Lauderdale (Fort Lauderdale, FL) 1.0 of 4.5 With North Carolina putting out so much talent this season, ECU didn't have a lot of reason to leave the state. However, ECU has been known for a few things over the years, and having a great Fullback in the back field has been one of them. Eli Tuitama, enjoying his rookie season in New York with the play off bound jets, has left a void at the position that Damian Calderon has been asked to fill. He has done an ok job, but the team needs a stronger player at the position. At 6-0, 257 pounds, Cornelius comes in with a familiar build and size to Eli Tuitama. The Coaching staff went down to Florida to get him, and they fought long and hard with several schools. " You know it was weird getting all this attention, and talking to all these people after games and practices. I'm glad its over now and i can just focus on what i need to do." Schools in Florida were after him, but he also caught the attention of big name schools like Pitt. In the end, there was no one better than ECU. He comes in towering over Calderon in both height and weight. While he has the size, and the potential, look for Cornelius to Redshirt behind the more experienced senior to be. OG Lucas Aragon Southeast Raleigh (Raleigh, NC) 1.0 of 4.5 Another Product of Southeast Raleigh High School, Lucas Aragon was one of the two big named Linemen that ECU was going after. NC State had its revenge for McLAughlin when they nabbed Donald Stuart, an OT. However the Pirates locked down Aragon early. "He is a big time guy. He is loud, he is focused, he can run block like no ones business." Coach Weeze said of his new player. The Pirates have struggled to recruit linemen over the last two seasons, and see a void coming at the positions. Lucas has the potential to start next season, but it could be a battle in training camp between a couple other players who has experience in the current offense system. ILB Mario Redd Southern Guilford (Greensboro, NC) 1.0 of 4.5 With the Addition of Oliver Hood in this class, and Richard Jack last class, the only thing East Carolina was missing was a big time guy in the middle. Enter Mario Redd. At 6-1 226 pounds, he isn't a big run stopper, but he is fast, and hits like a mule. ECU is quickly putting together a scary front seven that will put the rest of the conference on notice. Mario Redd was a 4 year starter in high school, and holds records for tackles in a single season, as well as career. He has done very well in High School. With potential to start as soon as next season, he will need to step it up and do more than tackle. He'll need to learn how to take the ball away, maybe put on a little weight. Most importantly, he'll need to learn how to grow up fast and lead this defense. RB Amir Turner Jr. (JuCo) Louisburg College (Louisburg, NC) 3.5 of 4.0 The crown jewel of the recruiting season is Amir Turner. A junior College transfer, his mother was a former Basketball players for East Carolina back in the day, and her boy is returning home. Amir Turner initially went to LouisBurg College as he failed to gain much attention coming out of high school. While at Louisburg, he showed the country why that was mistake. Fast and strong, he lead his conference in rushing. Louisburg finished ranked 17 in the country. If Turner Jr can be as productive at ECU as he was for Louisburg, expect a much better offense from ECU. Kyler Wilson will be starting next season, and it will be good for him to have a reliable back to take some of the pressure as he grows, and continues to develop his arm. 5-8, 198 pounds, Amir isn't a big player, but he is quick and shifty, and should be able to give the nasty run game that juice it so desperately needs. Other Recruits: RB Samuel Baldwin III 1.5 of 4.0 OLB Oliver Hood 1.0 of 4.0 P Maximilian Eddy 1.0 of 4.0 CB Reshad Lipscomb 1.0 of 3.5 CB Samuel Amos 2.5 of 3.0* WR Samuel Rapp 1.0 of 3.0 OG Robert Archer 1.0 of 3.0 FS Booker Richmond 1.0 of 2.5 KR Tyus Lindsay 1.0 of 2.5* PR Javorius Clarke 1.0 of 2.5* *possible starters

For the first time on Franz's Facts, we have an international high temperature Mexico City, MEX - 80 F vs. The lowest OL rating this week was 7.4 Teams with a higher OL rating than their opponents were 9-7 this week and only 15-14 the last two weeks. There were 11 "severe" injuries this week Jaz Durant, RB - Severe Back Disc Tear Pete Choboian, RB - Severe Achilles Rupture Lance Nattiel, ILB - Severe Quadriceps Strain Randy Lehr, OLB - Severe Toe Sprain Scott Howard, TE - Severe Biceps Strain Akeel Morris, ILB - Severe Shoulder Strain Jack Green, OG - Severe Thumb Sprain LaMichael Harley, OG - Severe Wrist Bruise Art Baber, WR - Severe Achilles Rupture Kevin Nguyen, SS - Severe Shoulder Rotator Cuff Carlton Sylvester, FS - Severe Elbow Sprain For the second straight week, ZERO teams had multiple severe injuries Home teams were a disappointing 6-9 this week Of the 16 games this week, only five were decided by one score. That figure is only half as many as last week. Teams who had a higher 3D% were 9-5-2 this week A far cry from the 12-4 record last week. When a bipedal mascot faced off against a non-biped, the bipeds were only 2-6 this week (after going 6-0 last week) This includes animals who are bipedal on the ground and were determined by mascot name.

    Akiem Williams III, affectionally known as AW3 has captured the hearts and minds of football fans in Clemson, SC, Dallas, TX, and everywhere in-between. The junior college star quarterback will be making his final decision any day now, with Clemson and SMU as his two finalists. We spoke to national recruiting analysts and experts to breakdown his game and predict where the nation's top junior college player will sign. Frankie Thornton, 247sports.com When I look at Akiem Williams, I see an instant impact type player. He's got all the intangibles in the world and will immediately be atop the depth chart at whichever school he attends. His biggest strength by far is his size. He's every bit of 6'3" 235 lbs and is a terror for defensive players to bring down. When he gets into the open field, he doesn't shy away from contact and uses his linebacker frame to punish opposing defenders. He might not have track speed, but with his skillset he certainly doesn't need it. PREDICTION: SMU John Blever, Rivals.com Williams is elite - there's no other way to put it. He's big enough, strong enough, and has all the tools to be an NFLHC quarterback someday. A lot of folks talk about his ability to extend plays with his legs, but I think his arm strength doesn't get talked about enough. He's got a Howitzer attached to his right shoulder and he's not afraid to use it. Does that mean he sometimes tries to fit throws into tight spaces? Sure, but more often than not, he's right on the money. He'll bring an immediate boost to whichever roster he picks and already has NFLHC scouts salivating. PREDICTION: Clemson SCHOOL COMPARISON (all ratings before progressions and * denotes a signee) Biggest competition: QB Frederick Snyder 6-4 227 Fr Grady (Atlanta GA) 3.0 of 4.0 [Hybrid] - QB Marcus Burden 6-5 229 Fr Van Alstyne (Van Alstyne TX) 1.0 of 5.0 [Hybrid] - ADVANTAGE: NEITHER Best weapons WR Andrew Harrison 6-0 230 (Fr) Orangeburg-Wilkinson (Orangeburg SC) 2.0 of 5.0 [Target] WR Theo Chamberlain 6-5 213 Fr Hoggard (Wilmington NC) 3.0 of 5.0 [Target]* WR Sawyer Vogel 6-5 233 Fr Tucker (Tucker GA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Target] - WR Gabriel Munson 6-1 204 Jr Arkansas Baptist (Little Rock AR) 4.0 of 4.5 [Target]* WR Aidan Blount 5-10 178 (So) Bonham (Bonham, TX) 3.0 of 4.5 [Speed] WR Devin Samuel 6-1 220 Fr Willowridge (Sugar Land TX) 1.0 of 5.0 [Target] RB Josiah Brock 5-6 193 (Fr) White Knoll (Lexington SC) 2.0 of 4.5 [Speed] - RB Stephen Cunningham 5-11 194 (Fr) Henrietta (Henrietta TX) 2.5 of 5.0 [Power] TE Kisona Vailopa 6-3 239 Fr Meigs County (Decatur TN) 3.0 of 5.0 [Blocking] - TE Timothy Jennings 6-0 242 (Fr) Iraan (Iraan TX) 2.0 of 5.0 [Blocking] - ADVANTAGE: Offensive line OT Matt Maynard 6-6 314 Fr Cook (Adel GA) 1.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Philip Bowden 6-7 272 Fr Loganville (Loganville GA) 1.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] C Byron Alexander 6-3 299 Fr Rock Hill (Rock Hill SC) 3.0 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] OG Philip Bowden 6-7 272 Fr Loganville (Loganville GA) 1.0 of 5.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Ivan Schultz 6-7 303 (Fr) Crescent (Iva SC) 2.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] - OT Terrell McRae 6-4 276 (Jr) Quinton (Quinton, OK) 4.5 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] OG Derek Quintana 6-4 338 Fr Mesquite (Mesquite TX) 3.0 of 4.5 [Run Blocking] C Martin Rush 6-1 255 Fr Longview (Longview TX) 3.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Jeremiah Berman 6-1 263 (Jr) Joaquin (Joaquin, TX) 4.0 of 4.0 [Pass Blocking] OT Jonathan Lang 6-3 322 Fr Robert E.

    Editor's Note: I intended to publish this after work today before games were posted. I then received a call from a friend and we had a lovely conversation...that lasted nearly 90 minutes, by which time games were up. Here is what I had written. Thursday Night Texas (5-5) at West Virginia (1-9)* There are few things more dangerous than a team with everything to lose. One of those things? A team with nothing to lose. That's the matchup we have in Morgantown. Texas comes into this one having lost three straight, all at home, to squander a 5-2 start. With TCU looming after this, this has suddenly and improbably become a must-win game if Texas hopes to go bowling for the ninth time in nine seasons. Oh, and they have to do it against the program that's had more success against Texas than any other. Yes, West Virginia is on an 8-game losing streak. But five of those losses came by one possession and two came in overtime--including the Mountaineers' game last week. They reportedly made a tweak to their offense that seems to have opened up the running game, if the 140 combined rushing yards between Mohamed Mustafa and Jamel Herron was any indication. And Texas does give up 110.5 rushing yards a game on 4.6 yards per carry, both of which rank in the middle of the Big XII pack. The Longhorns haven't shown much ability or desire to adapt to each opponent lately. The ingredients are all there for a trap game--all except for the talent on the field. Kyler Tackett, Simeon Wells, and Tristan Priest are likely to be the best, second-best, and third-best players on the field, though West Virginia defensive end Aaron Pagan will surely be in the conversation. If you're West Virginia, how do you counter those three? To keep Priest out of their backfield, they'll need senior right tackle Austin Wooten and sophomore right guard Kahikina Kasimani to wall him off. Texas is obviously talented at all levels of the defense, but if West Virginia can't get past that first level then they're cooked anyway. Darren Lemons has been a nonfactor at best, so they'll absolutely need to run the ball successfully or they're cooked again. And if they can't slow down the Texas backfield, they're cooked as well. The Mountaineers allow 131.1 rushing yards per game on 5.4 yards per carry, and they allow opponents to complete 67.0% of their passes for 21 touchdowns, 5 interceptions, and a 158.8 passer rating. They can survive a monster individual performances (Texas Tech needed 185 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns from Solomon McLaughlin to win in overtime). They probably can't survive two. They'll need Aaron Pagan living in the backfield. They'll need Lamont Carson locking down whoever he's matched up with. They'll need just about everything to go their way, and they're overdue for that--but the football gods don't do overdue. I think Texas wins on sheer talent and earns bowl eligibility in Morgantown. Texas 27, West Virginia 16

    Thoughts on New Anthem Rule

    I hate the idolatry of the flag... I get that it is a symbol for what America stands for, but saying we disrespect the flag is a crock of shit. If you want to say they're disrespecting some ideas of America, fine we can have a discussion ( youre wrong because a peaceful protest is about as American as it gets). This new anthem rule just does the "do this somewhere more 'convenient', aka where I don't have to see it and think about my own shortcomings as a race because I like my privilege and I don't want anyone to impede on that"

    Last Week Recap Last week Eastern Michigan closed out their non-conference schedule with an emphatic win over Old Dominion. As expected, this was not a particularly close game as ODU couldn’t get anything going on the ground and gave up two turnovers while EMU rolled offensively. On the downside, K Simon Hand missed his first field goal of the season from 47 yards out ending an impressive 19/19 streak he had going. Moving onto this week, it’s rivalry week in Ypsilanti! Central Michigan is coming to town on Friday night with both schools riding a 5-game winning streak, but only one will leave with 6. A win here would mean a bowl berth for EMU, something unthinkable back when they started the season 0-5. For CMU, a win would keep their division title dreams alive with only one game left against WMU. With a surprising victory over Toledo recently, CMU has shown that it can hang with more talented teams which bodes ill for the Eagles. However, they do have losses to UTSA and Ball State; teams with very similar talent to EMU so there is hope. Let’s take a look at how that might come about. CMU Offense vs. EMU Defense For Central Michigan, RS FR QB Byron Suggs has been performing quite well thus far this season, near the top of the conference in productivity. He also has been showing his wheels, with 350 yards on the ground he is nearly the team’s leading rusher (although this may speak more to RB Makai Carr’s mediocrity). The overall impression of their offense is very similar to EMU in almost every way interestingly. Where they pull slightly ahead is with their OL chemistry. While EMU is near the bottom of the conference in OL ratings, CMU is close to the top, which may be one reason they rank first in the MAC with a +11 in turnover margin in part due to having only 6 giveaways. Defensively, EMU has been slowly improving although still ranking near the bottom of the MAC in most categories. However, with run defense as their Achilles heel, they may be better prepared to stop CMU than a more run-heavy offense. They may have some success blitzing on the right side of the offensive line where two sophomores line up, but other than that, EMU will have to rely on shutting down the long ball and aggressively pursuing Suggs, hoping that he panics and has an uncharacteristic turnover. EMU Offense vs. CMU Defense Defensively, CMU is fairly well balanced and quite stout as one of the top-3 units in the conference. In particular, CB Sebastian Simpson has 6 INTs on the season leading the conference. This is the other part of their +11 turnover margin. They manage to both protect the ball on offense and ball-hunt on defense. In many cases turnover margin (especially fumbles) is due to luck and teams that rely on them tend to regress to the mean. In this case however, it is clear there are talented players and a helpful scheme contributing. QB Shaw is going to have to be very careful with how he attacks this defense and not sink his team with careless play. Offensively, EMU may need to rely on quick passing plays to march down the field. The DE’s for CMU are adept at containing scrambling QB’s and at this point expecting RB Morton to carry the load is a bit foolish. Against fairly average LB’s though, there may be some success to be had if they can be targeted with the side benefit of avoiding the ball-hawking secondary. Overall, the most important thing is to protect the football and try to get to 3rd and manageable distances and rely on Shaw’s hot streak to carry them. Special Teams Nothing very exciting here for either team. Both returning units have a punt return touchdown which has been rare this season so they are quite capable. The punters have almost identical averages. Again, EMU’s kicker is now 20-21 on the season compared to 13-19 for CMU so the Eagles would love for this to turn into a kicking matchup. Overall Both teams are coming into this rivalry hot with 5-game winning streaks. EMU is aiming to get back to a bowl game for the first time in several years while CMU is looking to stay in contention for the division title. While CMU has had a much better season overall, they have been benefiting from good field position and a ton of turnovers. If EMU gets lucky and has a few bounces go their way they could steal this one. However, I’m inclined to believe that is a little unlikely and CMU is the school that gets the 6-game win streak. Final prediction: CMU over EMU 24-17

    Thoughts on New Anthem Rule

    I said I wasn't going to devolve into debating the merits of Castro, but I'll briefly delve into why Kaep may have chosen Castro as a symbol. First I'll say that nearly all of the human rights abuses thrown at Cuba since the revolution completely ignore any historical or social context, namely the fact that Cuba has been in imperial crosshairs for its entire existence. None of this is to excuse the flaws or abuses of Castro. But perhaps what you don't understand is that before the revolution, Cuba was run by Batista - a US backed dictator who enforced a feudal caste system in the country. Most of the means of production was actually foreign owned by the US or controlled by a few wealthy landowners. And of course inequality and poverty were astronomical. Now Cuba has a world class healthcare system, and its people do not want for food or shelter in spite of the sabotage of the world's largest imperial power. Castro also played a significant role in bringing about the end of apartheid in South Africa. In America, Kaep is protesting against police brutality and the general oppression of Blacks. Indeed, our vast carceral state acts as a caste system which disproportionately impacts people of color. Castro, Che, and Malcom X, especially outside of the world's greatest settler-colonial state, are universally seen as symbols of liberation, specifically black and brown liberation. Among the most marginalized and among scholars that emerge from the margins that do not represent hegemonic US interests, the legacy of Castro as a liberator and the Cuban Revolution's ability to change material conditions for millions of people is not really debated. So from that standpoint, it is not exactly controversial or surprising that Kaep would choose these symbols for his cause. And indeed, it seems that everything Kaepernick has done has almost universally upset the ruling class, not the people he is protesting on behalf of. Besides, my point was: these criticisms of Kaep represent convenient scapegoats for people who already disagree with what he is doing. People would be upset even if he had not displayed these symbols. To me, the only irony I see is that the event of the national anthem in the NFL is explicitly a propagandistic display to support the Department of Defense. I know John McCain and Jeff Flake are two of the most radical socialist senators in the country, but I think their report is relatively objective. https://www.mccain.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/12de6dcb-d8d8-4a58-8795-562297f948c1/tackling-paid-patriotism-oversight-report.pdf The DoD spends millions of dollars each year on displays of patriotism at pro sporting games. The purpose is PR and recruitment. Considering Iraq alone represents a greater sum total of human rights abuses than Malcom X, Che, or Fidel could ever dream of, why is Kaep so stupid for repping these figures, when his protests of the United States is far, far more significant?

    [2021] SSC: Week 13

    Here's your CFBHC stat leaders after week 13! Please remember that I am only reporting on players whose stats are updated on their conferences stat sheets, so if you think your player deserves a mention here, update your sheet! Stats Leaders Passing Yards Elijah McManus - 3583 yards Tucker Dowden - 3487 yards Eric McLean - 3457 yards Passing Touchdowns Eric McLean - 39 TDs Elijah McManus - 36 TDs Steven Gore -32 TDs Rushing Yards Ethan Newby - 1622 yards Evan Grant - 1586 yards Solomon McLaughlin - 1542 yards Rushing Touchdowns Evan Grant - 24 TDs Ethan Newby - 22 TDs Joseph Saunders - 22 TDs Receiving Yards Deontray Clay - 1191 yards Tevin Lattimore - 1100 yards Jay Arreola - 1037 yards Receiving Touchdowns Artavius Hopkins - 13 TDs Gavin Faulk - 13 TDs Tevin Lattimore - 13 TDs Notable Tidbits Kent State isn't winless anymore! The Golden Flashes upset the Ohio Bobcats behind the efforts of their quarterback Nicholas Garland. Garland managed to complete 16 of his 22 pass attempts for 199 yards and two touchdowns, while adding another 32 yards on the ground. Speaking of teams getting their first wins on the season, the New Mexico State Aggies got theirs on the ground! Aggies running back Shane Walker gained 116 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries, as New Mexico State upset Artavius Hopkins and Arkansas State. Running back Solomon McLaughlin straight up dominated in Texas Tech's game against the West Virginia Mountaineers. The Red Raiders fed McLaughlin 31 carries, and he certainly delivered gaining 185 yards and 3 TDs. While we here at SSC tend to point out individual performances in this space, the heroic efforts of Rice's receivers deserve some mention. While Rice quarterback Eric McLean went wild over UTEP, it was directly on the backs of his receivers. Rice tight end Abraham Kent, as well as wideouts Deontray Clay, and Jamir Irving each had over 100 yards receiving. The three receivers also combined for 5 touchdowns. Another spectacular rushing performance came this week from Auburn's Sean Meade. Meade straight up destroyed Georgia's defense on only 23 carries. Meade managed to gain 178 yards and 3 TDs, firmly decimating Georgia's hopes at an SEC East title. Matchup of the Week WR Gabe Barrientos vs CB Ahmed Holman With Michigan's undefeated season on the line this week, all eyes went to how Penn State CB Ahmed Holman would do against Michigan's leading receiver Gabe Barrientos. Barrientos: 3 receptions for 41 yards and 1 TD Holman: 1 tackle, 1 interception, and 1 PD Verdict: Ahmed Holman Even against the undefeated Michigan Wolverines, Holman had a great game. The Penn State corner back held Barrientos to 3 receptions, while picking off a pass from quarterback Gabe Cooper and notching up a PD. Outside of his touchdown catch, Barrientos was pretty much neutralized against the Nittany Lion's number one corner.

    Thoughts on New Anthem Rule

    This isn't a new thing, either. Conservatives' playbook has always been to use "America" like a shield to deflect any issues that progressives push on them. Segregation, suffrage, welfare, Social Security, etc...these were all un-American, Communist, etc... If you need a better example, look at how the public view of Vietnam-era protests were re-branded by conservatives and the media into anti-soldier instead of anti-war, Protesters weren't anti-soldier, for the most part, but any who expressed that viewpoint, especially the loudest, were made to represent the whole. Similarly, conservative media takes the worst from BLM, Occupy, and other protest groups and use them as a "straw man" to represent the entire group and re-brand the protest as anti-cop instead of anti-racism. Anti-soldier or anti-flag instead of anti-violence. Anti-gun instead of anti-school shooting.

    Thoughts on New Anthem Rule

    TheTodd’s first argument was more compelling than his last. I’m not sure how anyone can say that Cuba has a state of the art health care system, i’ve seen whole hospitals of doctors not able to treat patients because they don’t have the necessary medicine. It is true that the people can receive “health care” for (almost) free when they need it, but it is NOT world-class, despite the over-abundance of doctors. And it is most certainly not true that people never want for food. The state-run food program does provide everyone the barest level of nourishment, but many are hungry, all the time. I have been there and seen it. Those claims are simply untrue. It is a magical place filled with amazing people, but it is far from a “shining example of the Communist ideal.” Kaep, while he has taken on a subject of great importance with mostly a head above the water (and with a strong measure of grace) MUST know he stepped in it with a tone-deaf act in Miami. It shows his human frailty, and also shows that even the best of intentions can meander off course. I still respect him for taking a stand and shining light on a social issue that needed to be lifted up, and that respect also means that I can acknowledge that he did a dumb thing. That said: this NFL rule is bullshit, and forced patriotism is not true patriotism. Legalities of the issue aside, I am disgusted that an entity with a special tax consideration has legislated an activity that has absolutely nothing to do with the activity for which it’s employees are being compensated. The rule is pandering in its worst form, and regressive beyond measure.

    Thoughts on New Anthem Rule

    I don't really want to get in a big discussion over this, I've heard the arguments you're presenting about Cuba before, and they're pretty baseless. I always know to end a conversation with someone about this topic when they start talking about how awesome Cuba is under Castro and blames any woes they have on the US(Despite Soviet assistance) . It's pretty clear at that point that you're only reading what you want to believe and even facts don't matter(I provided articles not from wikipedia for your pleasure). I would also guess that you haven't spoken to any actual Cubans about Castro.

    Let's also not forget the misinformation probably spread by the NFL about Kap. Like how he wants too much money or doesn't want to be a backup. And for the whole Castro thing. Castro was a bad person. Like terrible. Same with other prominent socialists like Stalin and Mao. But we also can't criticize people killing under the flag of communism and ignore the killings under the flag of capitalism. We do fly overs over stadiums with Jets that are used to kill innocents in other countries we can't name. Again, Castro is a terrible person but if you get hope from American killers and recognize what they mean to you (freedom etc.) Also think about why Kap would have worn Fidel Castro stuff. I don't agree with him wearing it (mostly because it distracted from the point that was already being bastardized), but Fidel Castro and socialism in general has been seen as a viable alternative to capitalism by black people which has led to the rape and enslavement entire continents and people. To so quickly antagonize @TheTodd15 for defending socialism and the blood on it's hands (which again is a lot) while not looking towards the palms of capitalists who have even more blood on their hands is not only ignorant but irresponsible. It's like criticizing school shooters when you are a serial killer. Again I think Kap wearing Fidel Castro stuff is bad. But even Castro represented an idea that isn't too far off from what our Founding Fathers represented. And our Founding Fathers enslaved people, raped their slaves (Thomas Jefferson) enslaved their own kids (also Thomas Jefferson), performed ethnic cleansing of an entire continent (Andrew Jackson and other presidents) stole Hawaii from their native people (American capitalists), allowed for terrorism against blacks and allies (govts all across America), murdered other revolutionaries (American govt) flooded our streets with drugs (Reagan) systematically destroyed black communities through a war on drugs (Reagan and Clinton) abused children in sweatshops overseas (American capitalists) allowed for the poisoning of cities (govt of Flint and of the state of Michigan) murdered protesters in the US (Kent State, actions against Civil Rights people) enslaved American citizens on the west coast (FDR) dropped a WMD on civilians (Truman and also in Vietnam) and that's just in the US. We could also talk about European capitalists colonizing Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. But they were capitalists so their human rights abuses were ok tho. Trust me. I'm a student of capitalism.

    I'm not going to hijack this thread with a debate on the merits of Fidel and Che. But calling Kaep an idiot because of support of this people smacks of ignorance. If you actually spent time studying beyond Wikipedia level summaries of the Cuban revolution, Kaeps invocation of Malcolm X, Che, and Fidel makes a lot of sense in terms of the struggles for his cause. In any case, simply displaying these figures who are already widely popularized on t-shirts and posters should not discredit his actions and cause. They are just convenient scapegoats for people predisposed against what he is advocating for.

    Thank you for your application to the Conference of Champions! I'll be in touch via PM. Since Arizona is a relatively recent opening, the position needs to stay open one more day before approving an application.
