@Johnny U Here's the problem with Black QB's! They are usually the best athlete on there high school team. So they drop back to pass the pocket breaks down and the first thing they do is run. This is the beginning of them forming bad habits.When they run usually good things happen for their team,so their high school coach doesn't care as long as their winning.Most white QB's aren't the best athlete on the team and when the pocket breaks down the white QB is force to use his mind and slide in the pocket and find the open man. Then most of the Black QB's go to college and bring their bad habits with them thus never developing their potential. I am a Ram fan and I can tell you Steve Young was the same way. The best thing that happened to him was going to the 49ers who I hate! But Bill Walsh was a great coach and Steve Young had to sit and learn behind Montana.But Steve still wanted to run at first when the pocket started to collapse but Bill Walsh only wanted his QB's to run as a last resort and that took Steve a little while to learn, when to hang in the pocket till the last minute and find the open receiver or when to run. So until High school coaches start to make their Black QB's run only as the last option I just don't see the Black QB developing in the same numbers as the white QB's.

By the way, the fourth-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Lousiana-Lafayette at Oklahoma State Line: Oklahoma State by 22.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (at least I used to be); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Louisiana-Lafayette is a pretty good team. I think this spread is way too high. They'll be competitive with Oklahoma State.
College Football Pick: Louisiana-Lafayette +22.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Virginia Tech at Pittsburgh Line: Virginia Tech by 10. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
This line screams trap to me, but then again, so did last week's small spread in the Cincinnati-Pittsburgh game. The Panthers are terrible.
College Football Pick: Virginia Tech -10 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Boston College at Northwestern Line: Northwestern by 3.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Don't mind me, just fading a crappy Big Ten team.
College Football Pick: Boston College +3.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Arizona State at Missouri Line: Missouri by 6.5. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
Missouri is coming off a tough game and may not be entirely focused for an Arizona State squad that is better than most people think. Great spot for the Sun Devils.
College Football Pick: Arizona State +6.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Utah State at Wisconsin Line: Wisconsin by 13. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Another Big Ten fade. Utah State has a tough defense, so this should be a low-scoring affair.
College Football Pick: Utah State +13 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
