I was watching Iowa St-Iowa and Iowa St. plays at Jack Trice Stadium. It’s the only Stadium in college football or basketball named for a black Person.
But I had never heard of this or him. So I looked him up and found this on the internet:

Quote
The first Black athlete at Iowa State, Trice died on Oct. 8, 1923, just two days after the second varsity college football game of his life. Minnesota players trampled Trice, and reports say he broke his collarbone in the third quarter and later died of hemorrhaged lungs and internal bleeding. Racist motives were suggested. According to a passage in the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder, “the KKK was at the stadium, and there had been a float sponsored by the Klan in the homecoming parade.”
Almost 75 years later, Trice’s name was affixed to the stadium. Iowa State would not play Minnesota again for 66 years after the game that ended Trice’s life.

Since I had never heard this, I imagine that many others hadn’t either and thought I would share.

This has to kill the ACC’s chances of getting a playoff berth

I don’t think FSU was going to be a factor at all. They are not good. ACCs playoff chances start and end with Clemson.

I think Clemson needed quality wins since they already have a loss. ACC teams taking horrible losses makes that impossible

My statement still stands. Nobody was counting on FSU to be good. They won’t be a quality win for anyone.

I think the FSU result along with this week’s performance shows how weak Notre Dame is.

You’d think their boosters would buy them a better team with player sponsorships

Down goes Clemson...again...in 2 OT's...

Dabo was really showin' his ass while the NC State coach seemingly handled himself class the entire game...

I'm old enough to remember "Clemsoning" being a verb meaning, well, exactly what happened today. But the last decade made that easy to forget.

Dabo is a good coach. But he’s definitely an a-hole. But that seems to be par for the course for big time college coaches.

Listening to the game, I really enjoyed the color commentator.  Towards the end, I learned he was RGIII. 

He's got a future in the business...very poised with a good delivery, pretty witty, and not full of himself.  Not at all like FP...
