From ESPN on Thursday night’s Stanford 56 – UCLA 35 football game:

Player of the game: [Stanford running back Christian] McCaffrey. He’s obviously a Heisman Trophy candidate, and — given the statistical evidence — one can make the argument that he should be the early leader for the award. His Thursday line looked like this: 25 carries, 243 yards, 9.7 yards per carry, four touchdowns, 369 all-purpose yards. There’s nary a moment when McCaffrey is not on the field — he even had a 96-yard kickoff return in this one — and he now leads the nation in all-purpose yardage. McCaffrey’s 369 all-purpose yards were the most of any FBS player in a single game this season.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqwHDcM5piY

Last season when McCaffrey was a true freshman, I blogged about him:

P.S., Perhaps unsurprisingly given Stanford’s history, the Stanford website pays a lot of attention to its athletes’ breeding:

• Full name is Christian Jackson McCaffrey
• Son of Ed and Lisa McCaffrey
• Mother played soccer at Stanford (1987-90)
• Father played football at Stanford (1986-1991) and professionally for the New York Giants (1991-94), San Francisco 49ers (1994) and Denver Broncos (1994-2003)
• Three brothers: Max, Dylan and Luke
• Max plays receiver at Duke

David Sime, Bobby Joe Morrow

• Grandfather, David Sime, ran track at Duke
• 1960 silver medalist in 100-yard dash at 1960 Summer Olympics
• 1956 world record holder in 100-yard dash
• Aunt, Sherrie Sime Giusto, played tennis at Virginia (1979-1983)
• Uncle, Scott Sime, played football and wrestled at Duke (1982-1986)
• Aunt, Monica McCaffrey Check, played basketball at Georgetown (1987-1991)
• Uncle, Bill McCaffrey, played basketball at Duke (1990-1991) and Vanderbilt (1992-1994)
• Uncle, Mike McCaffrey, played basketball at Husson College (1995-1999)

Okay, as a commenter points out, in the grand Stanford tradition of David Starr Jordan, Lewis Terman, Fred Terman, and William Shockley, from Stanford.scout.com in 2013:

His bloodline directed him toward Palo Alto, too. While Ed McCaffrey was spectacular on the football field, Christian’s mother, Lisa, was a soccer player on The Farm.

“That’s why Ed and I got together,” she told Sports Illustrated in 1998. “So we could breed fast white guys.”

McCaffrey is starring ahead of another Stanford running back with a pretty good pedigree himself, Barry Sanders Jr.

Here’s McCaffrey’s high school highlights recruiting video:

From FoxSports today:

On his various trips to camps and all-star combines in high school, Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey found out what it’s like to be stereotyped. “A lot of times I got confused for a kicker,” said the then 5-foot-10, 180ish-pound running back. “And I’ve been compared to every white player in the NFL.”

Watching from the stands, his mother, Lisa, heard the skepticism firsthand from the other parents.

“They’d laugh at him,” she said. “Or I’d hear after, ‘We thought your son was going to suck.’”
If only those dismissive parents knew the bloodlines of the kid they were dissing.

    Federal immigration and tax policies say otherwise, those aren't the traits they're legalizing/subsidizing, the feds have a anti-eugenicist policy of importing and proliferating violent low IQ ass holes that have lots of stupid diabetic kids.

    So load up on the Folgers, Maxwell House, etc. if that's something you truly desire for your family, producing a male.

    Perhaps the tag lines, "The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup."; and "Good to the last drop." were trying to alert future dads how to guarantee a male offspring.

Ed McCaffrey was one of the hardest working dudes in the NFL, routinely catching passes over the middle, getting blown up and dumped by linebackers, and coming down with the football.

    I think anywhere from fifty to ninety percent of "work ethic" is genetic too.

    My mother's sister (well, one of them) never married, but she had two sons with different fathers three years apart. Neither knew their dads at all: she had a good career and moved wherever the job was. She was a single-mom-on-purpose, which is still idiotic to me (and all the rest of our family), but perhaps less so when you are making the money she did. Both kids, now in their thirties, are highly intelligent, personable, and good looking, but one does exactly as much as he needs to to get by and the other is phenomenally hard working. It turns out one is the son of a railroad conductor and the other the son of a Fortune 500 (current) CFO.

Which reminds me of Emmett Smith, who said he couldn’t compete against today’s defenses, though he retired only a decade ago; probably that was a way of pointing out without motioning towards the ever-improving science of steroids. Which makes me think that an Adrian Peterson highlight reel is the most naked example of high-tech steroids since Big Mac and Bonds.

    However, catching a football in NFL is never easy. My opinion is the two hardest things to do in sports are:

    (1) Hit a baseball thrown by any pitcher American Legion or higher. Just to stand in the batters box and not flinch when curve balls look like they are coming at your head requires immense courage. Moneyball had excellent prose on how Billy Bean could not stand being in that batters box during a game.

    (2) Catch a football in any level above Jr Varsity in high school.

    Even if Ed was never even covered, catching an Elway thrown football is hard. People are amazed at how big Elway was. He would warn people in practice before certain plays "to be ready for a heater." Footballs used in football are not those nice softish things you toss around with the kids in the back yard, they are bricks that will hurt your hands. Thus the whole "inflategate" scandal. One of the most miserable punishments I ever suffered was to go outside into cold February weather in shorts and tee shirts with helmets to catch footballs thrown by two strong Texas boys who doubled as pitchers. All for not taking lifting weights in a warm gym serious enough. We never slacked off like that again. My chest was bruised and red from running button hooks 15 yards from the QB. My hands were split and sore.

    Then add in the sheer courage necessary to not only catch the damn thing thrown by a pro quarterback who could probably break a plywood sheet by throwing a pass at it, then do it knowing people that ought to be in jail are waiting to knock the snot out of you when you are some of the most vulnerable positions possible. To do that overrides every instinct a normal person has for survival. It takes a complete act of will ignore the inevitable and not go all "alligator arms". Not everyone, to say the least, can do it. Defensive secondaries are full of people that cannot. They aren't cowards. It also takes will to take on a ball carrier but they do. But catching that ball is an entirely different thing.

    Then consider that the average NFL cornerback can run backwards faster than most of us can run forwards, and then change direction to cover 10 yards in less than 2 seconds, so even being open is a major accomplishment.

    And Ed was open consistently, extremely open, embarrassing open, if you are a black cornerback. I think Ed might have taken more vicious shots than a black wideout typically does exactly because black were furious at him, furious in the way someone that is about to loose their source of income is at the person who is the cause of that loss.

    Well, not exactly. I didn't presume it, I just declined to explore it right now, since doing so would complicate the discussion more than I have the time for tonight. Suffice it to say that when it comes to work ethic, I think the McCaffrey family values were more important than the McCaffrey family genes.

    This is not unrelated to my long-standing argument about Tim Tebow. I happen to think Tebow has zero NFL-level football talent, but he managed to play for or at least hang around with 4 different NFL teams, based on little more than an unprecedented degree of support from family and fans.
  15. Dave Sime received a silver medal in the 100 Meter dash not the 100 Yard dash. Olympic track distances have always been in meters not yards. 100 meters is roughly 110 yards.

  16. The lack of white cornerbacks is astonishing. 15 years ago Jason Sehorn and another 25 years before that to Roger Wehrli and Pat Fisher. That’s about the entire list. John Mangum and Brian Davis were nickelbacks. It’s all easily explainable but still odd there haven’t been a few more anomalies.

    • Replies: @PV van der Byl
    Generally, I agree, but I'll add an anomaly: Scott Perry, cornerback for the Bengals, 1976-1980. AFAIK, he was the only white cornerback in the NFL apart from Wehrli during those years.

    One of only two Williams College graduates to start in the NFL over the last 40 years, Perry easily outran Archie Griffin in the 40 yards during training camp.

    "To do that overrides every instinct a normal person has for survival."

    In rugby football there's something similar, the "up and under", where a player punts the ball as high as possible into the opponents half. The height is to give the kicker (and any of his team level with or behind him) time to catch up with the ball as it descends.

    Meanwhile some poor soul has positioned himself under the ball and must leap to catch it, aware that three or four 17-stone guys at the peak of fitness are sprinting towards him. They're not allowed to tackle him until he's back on the ground (though they can jump for the ball, so he has to handle that), but the moment both feet are on the floor, he can be flattened by several bodies (his team mates aren't allowed to protect him).

    The courage/concentration mix to just focus on the ball and ignore the coming collision is amazing. Some players do mishandle/drop the ball under pressure - in which case the opposition will target them with high kick after high kick.

Moneyball had excellent prose on how Billy Bean could not stand being in that batters box during a game.

    (2) Catch a football in any level above Jr Varsity in high school.

    Even if Ed was never even covered, catching an Elway thrown football is hard. People are amazed at how big Elway was. He would warn people in practice before certain plays "to be ready for a heater." Footballs used in football are not those nice softish things you toss around with the kids in the back yard, they are bricks that will hurt your hands. Thus the whole "inflategate" scandal. One of the most miserable punishments I ever suffered was to go outside into cold February weather in shorts and tee shirts with helmets to catch footballs thrown by two strong Texas boys who doubled as pitchers. All for not taking lifting weights in a warm gym serious enough. We never slacked off like that again. My chest was bruised and red from running button hooks 15 yards from the QB. My hands were split and sore.

    Then add in the sheer courage necessary to not only catch the damn thing thrown by a pro quarterback who could probably break a plywood sheet by throwing a pass at it, then do it knowing people that ought to be in jail are waiting to knock the snot out of you when you are some of the most vulnerable positions possible. To do that overrides every instinct a normal person has for survival. It takes a complete act of will ignore the inevitable and not go all "alligator arms". Not everyone, to say the least, can do it. Defensive secondaries are full of people that cannot. They aren't cowards. It also takes will to take on a ball carrier but they do. But catching that ball is an entirely different thing.

    Then consider that the average NFL cornerback can run backwards faster than most of us can run forwards, and then change direction to cover 10 yards in less than 2 seconds, so even being open is a major accomplishment.

    And Ed was open consistently, extremely open, embarrassing open, if you are a black cornerback. I think Ed might have taken more vicious shots than a black wideout typically does exactly because black were furious at him, furious in the way someone that is about to loose their source of income is at the person who is the cause of that loss.

    “To do that overrides every instinct a normal person has for survival.”

    In rugby football there’s something similar, the “up and under”, where a player punts the ball as high as possible into the opponents half. The height is to give the kicker (and any of his team level with or behind him) time to catch up with the ball as it descends.

    Meanwhile some poor soul has positioned himself under the ball and must leap to catch it, aware that three or four 17-stone guys at the peak of fitness are sprinting towards him. They’re not allowed to tackle him until he’s back on the ground (though they can jump for the ball, so he has to handle that), but the moment both feet are on the floor, he can be flattened by several bodies (his team mates aren’t allowed to protect him).

    The courage/concentration mix to just focus on the ball and ignore the coming collision is amazing. Some players do mishandle/drop the ball under pressure – in which case the opposition will target them with high kick after high kick.

    McCaffrey finally got some rushing touchdowns this game. I was watching the replay and an infographic came up early in the game showing stats for the different Stanford running backs. At that point, McCaffrey had something like 650 rushing yards and only 1 rushing touchdown, whereas Redmound Wright, the other running back, had less than 130 yards but 7(!) rushing TDs as a result of nearly always getting the ball close to the end zone.

    In the UCLA game, McCaffrey’s TDs were on rushes of 9,28,70, and 6 yards.

  33. Much like his HS highlight real, Christian McCaffrey still looks small and incredibly quick at the big time college level. He doesn’t look that fast (relatively) anymore. That’s not a dis, there are lots of fast guys out there on defense these days. Since he apparently has great hands, and has been catching passes since at least high school, can return kicks (think Edelman), Stanford, his dad, etc. He could a great piece for any pro team when he gets out. I hope he stays healthy.

    Bill Belichick is definitely a silent race realist. Someone as good at evaluating people as he is would be forced to notice the patterns. There is no doubt he recognized an inefficiency in the rest of NFL's evaluation of white players, which gave him a nice little arbitrage opportunity where he could underpay or underdraft talented white guys who just "do their job", thus doing very well on the salary cap for years and years. If a white CB ever plays another down in the NFL, it will be on a Bill Belichick team.

    Even the black kid he drafted out of Stanford, safety Jordan Richards, is a white guy: smart and slow.

    The lack of white cornerbacks is astonishing. 15 years ago Jason Sehorn and another 25 years before that to Roger Wehrli and Pat Fisher. That's about the entire list. John Mangum and Brian Davis were nickelbacks. It's all easily explainable but still odd there haven't been a few more anomalies.

    Generally, I agree, but I’ll add an anomaly: Scott Perry, cornerback for the Bengals, 1976-1980. AFAIK, he was the only white cornerback in the NFL apart from Wehrli during those years.

    One of only two Williams College graduates to start in the NFL over the last 40 years, Perry easily outran Archie Griffin in the 40 yards during training camp.

    Or, if they’re serious about the breeding remark, maybe their “group” has a higher mean. I don’t know. Regardless, it’s much ado about nothing. In the big picture, breeding humans to be good athletes makes as much sense as breeding cats to be good swimmers.

    Apparently there was a Harvard physician who had a theory about how to "insure" that the prospective fetus would be born a male. Chiefly interested in this theory was future Vice-President and Presidential Candidate Al Gore, who desperately wanted a son since his first three kids were born girls. The theory had something to do with drinking tons of coffee before putting in full effort. The point is, Al Gore believed this theory by the Harvard dr. (whom he may or may not have known at Harvard as an undergrad) and on Tippers fourth and final pregnancy, a song was born, Al Gore III.

    So load up on the Folgers, Maxwell House, etc. if that's something you truly desire for your family, producing a male.

    Perhaps the tag lines, "The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup."; and "Good to the last drop." were trying to alert future dads how to guarantee a male offspring.

    Who would've thought it?

    I heard it had more do with the “position” than with drinking loads of coffee or other tricks. If you had a girl while on top, you should switch positions next time if you desire a boy. Just a theory.

    I don't think that is true in Trout's case, he is 6-2 and 235 p0unds, which is considerably larger than your prototypical singles hitter/base stealer who usually dominate the ranks of guys leading MLB in stolen bases in most years. Billy Hamilton who lead the NL in stolen bases this year for the Reds is two inches shorter, but 75 pounds lighter than Trout. Trout's speed in the outfield seems as good as ever, did you see his incredible catch he made three weeks ago against Seattle? This season he became the first player in MLB history to be MVP in back to back All-Star games, and after it was over Orioles CF Adam Jones who is black called Trout the " The white Bo Jackson" . BTW, Bo Jackson never stole more than 27 bases in his two relatively full seasons ( pre-injury) in pro baseball ( He had 27 and 26 those two seasons and 10 the year before in 116 games ). Big power hitters with speed I think are generally discouraged from stealing a ton of bases.

    Trout might have got the green light in 2012 due to being called up from the minors a month into the season, combined with the fact that I think the Angels that season were trying to manufacture runs. I know like Jackson in the 1980's Trout is viewed as one of the fastest players in the league, but also like Jackson unusual in that he is much bigger physically than the other fast guys in the league who are generally rail thin lead off hitter types. If you watch videos of him walking around or being interviewed you can see he does have a physique very much like Jackson did in his heyday. I think this is hidden during games by the fact that today's baseball uniforms are tailored to look loose, like the old fashioned uniforms of ballplayers in the 1930's and 40's ( In line with baseball's general nostalgia phase ). Jackson played in the era when baseball uniforms were tight, much like basketball uniforms during the same time, so it showed off muscles more obviously.

    There is a video on YouTube of him posing for pictures before a game with the Dodgers with Yasiel Puig, who is a big, athletic outfielder from Cuba, and quite honestly Trout looks even more muscular than Puig is despite being a tad shorter and twenty pounds lighter and much fairer skinned ( which doesn't show off musculature as easily as dark skin ). Jones said Trout looks like an NFL LB, which when you think of it, so did Bo Jackson. MLB this season has speed clocks on players as they are running bases, and Trout's best speed was 22.5 mph, and Trout was doing this just tagging up from second to third, not in a full on sprint running around the bases, say from first to third. For comparison Hamilton's best sprint speed only matched that once all year despite a lot more base stealing attempts, and the fact that Trout is nearly 50 percent heavier than Hamilton.

    The idea of whites losing their speed faster than blacks was a hobbyhorse of Bill James in one of his baseball books years ago. I would thing age 23 is a little soon to be losing your speed. If a white athlete matures later, it would seem age 20 would not be his peak.

Several black girls also said things like “you have a body like a black man,” although I don’t in a lot of ways. I also have slender calves and forearms relative to my body, which also helps running fast. My thighs are enormous even though I have very low body fat and no longer lift heavy.

There must be some purpose to calves like that. My calves are really high and then go in and are almost straight down to the ankle.

    “In general, eugenicists have prized traits like high IQ and behavioral restraint, seeking to maximize these traits in the population, and to minimize low IQ, genetic diseases, and psychopathogy”

    Federal immigration and tax policies say otherwise, those aren’t the traits they’re legalizing/subsidizing, the feds have a anti-eugenicist policy of importing and proliferating violent low IQ ass holes that have lots of stupid diabetic kids.

    The New England Patriots team roster is still majority black. The whitest teams in the NFL are mostly black, even though whites heavily outnumber blacks in America.

    I think it would be far more fascinating if instead of the Pro Bowl there was a Race Bowl, pitting the best white players and coaches against their black counterparts. That might get a bigger audience than even the Super Bowl.

    If half and halfies could chose white team i give whitey the edge for simple fact that they get tom brady!!
