      Working on a few things!   09/13/2017

      Hi guys, we are working on the forum theme now, which is why you might notice a "different" look.  It shouldn't take too long.  We didn't want to disable the forums so feel free to post, etc and we should be back up with our old look soon.

    Sounds like the 2019 class will be best evaluated in 2-3 years.

    Marcel Brooks named LSU and Bama as his final two, I believe. From a poster on Geaux24/7 known as DD3 24, re Brooks. https://247sports.com/college/lsu/Board/59425/Contents/Will-four-star-linebacker-Marcel-Brooks-sign-with-LSU-Tigers-or-Alabama-Crimson-Tide-115385904?Page=2 "Like I've been posting, and sent info to certain people on here to pass along, he can't read, and is failing, is a cancer on the team, always in high gear, whether it's fighting with coaches or players on the sideline, or getting personal fouls, or grabbing girls in school, posting instagram pics of him and his GF in shower etc. goes nuts on the sideline and needs a handler, which is usually a assistant coach, and sent to emergency room after a precaution to check for concussion, and they did blood work. Not only pot in his blood... hmmm..., no wondered he has all that energy and erratic behavior. Coach still allowed him to play after all this( failing as well). Maybe he's not now.. ??... other teams heard this, and was waiting to use the info, so they finally had to kick him off the team for the last part of the season. But hey...... he's better now! He's back on the team."

    I've been optimistic on the Steele recruitment but if we don't get an OV then it ain't happening IMO.

    Set up his 4th OV to Florida. Committing on September 27th. Fingers crossed we get his last OV.

    Sha, You beat me to it. Here's a little longer version that explains their thinking going forward: We won't go too much into detail on this because we don't trash kids, but this class has an inordinate amount of guys with questionable mental evaluations, and I'm not even talking about the flakey kids. One probably needs to be in jail. The others may prove to be 'passes' even though they have a lot of talent. Those kids aren't irredeemable but they may not be good program fits. If later in the cycle we're dismissive about UT missing on an athletically gifted kid, or if I rank an obviously talented player quite low, feel free to read in between the lines there. When Texas just flat misses on a talented kid with no red flags, we'll obviously make sure the record is straight on that. This section is no way designed to excuse any misses like that."

    I don't normally post content from other websites, but this was too interesting to pass up. So I only paste a couple of paragraphs. I think it explains a lot that we've seen so far. From IT's report today: "BAD APPLES We won't go too much into detail on this because we don't trash kids, but this class has an inordinate amount of guys with questionable mental evaluations, and I'm not even talking about the flakey kids. One probably needs to be in jail. The others may prove to be 'passes' even though they have a lot of talent. Those kids aren't irredeemable but they may not be good program fits."

    Regarding injuries, I've done some searching on that. Research by the NFL has shown that certain knee and ankle injuries happened more frequently on artificial turf. The Ravens have switched to natural grass in 2016 and players noted that their knees and ankles felt less sore after practice and games because of it. But research by the main provider of artificial turf in the NFL showed that about 20% less injuries happen on artificial turf comparing to natural grass. But what else were they going to say right? A survey from 2010 among NFL players showed that 82 percent of them thought that artificial turf triggers more injuries than natural grass. Side note: most of them also said that they prefered artificial turf over a poor grass field. The Texans were notorious for having an awful grass field so they switched to artificial turf. Generally artificial turf might be considered a safer choice because it is easier to get right. While a great grass field is better than artificial turf, a bad grass field is worse than artificial turf. Especially the Seahawks seem to be very positive about their artificial turf, because they claim their defense plays a lot faster on it and hence performes better. Statistics about their defense mostly support this notion.
  12. Hopefully the rain holds off and they are able to get the game in tonight. Tomorrow’s weather looks good with the rain chance going back up on Sunday.
  13. If those two players are the ones involved it’s obviously not an indictment on the school. Only an idiot would give money to a benchwarmer and our bag men are not idiots.
  14. I'm going to go ahead and get this started, and if @Jameson McCausland wants to put in his preview here, bring it on! Couple of notes. Team arrived yesterday and took some time at Alex Box Stadium to get in a few cuts and some light practice. This morning the crew took a tour of the Marucci facilities. It's currently 72 and there's a steady rain falling. The series schedule for this weekend is as follows: FRIDAY 7 PM CST—LSU RHP Zack Hess (0-1, 30.86) vs. Texas RHP Nolan Kingham (1-0, 0.00) SATURDAY 6:30 PM CST—LSU RHP Caleb Gilbert (0-0,10.38) vs. Texas RHP Chase Shugart (0-0, 0.00) SUNDAY 2 PM CST—LSU RHP Todd Peterson (0-1, 6.75) vs. Texas RHP Blair Henley (0-0, 1.80) All games will be streamed live on SECN+ via WatchESPN Live Stats will be available on www.LSUsports.net Radio: 104.9 The Horn I will have play-by-play on twitter, https://twitter.com/joeywa_44 I'll have updates as the weekend goes along. #HookEm!
  15. NGHOR Former Texas RB Chris Warren: There was a 'disconnect' between Tom Herman, Longhorns last season https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/texaslonghorns/2018/02/22/former-texas-rb-chris-warren-disconnect-tom-herman-longhorns-last-season
  16. I can see his tweets but I can’t copy and paste them here. Hopefully this won’t last for long.

    Good stuff in the weekend OP from the Brainiacs. Some key stuff: Tyler Johnson will visit next weekend after missing Jr. Day. They think if we can get Demani Richardson on campus well be in a good spot. Says kid grew up a Texas fan. Stacy Wilkins will for sure take an OV to Texas and that's the only one he knows as of now. They still like Whittington to Texas.
  19. I don't tweet, but enjoy seeing the occasional twitter repost here. Looks like Longhorn Frenzy locked his twitter account so that only approved followers can view his posts.

    That's all great and maybe at Stanford that could work but 7v7 is quickly Turing into AAU, maybe it isn't as bad YET. You will have to deal with them soon, don't necessarily mean $$ deal but those guys/"coaches"/trainers spend enough time and influence players.
