  1. Check out the Big 12 Media pre-season all conference teams. http://www.big12sports.com/pdf9/5474959.pdf 13 players were selected on defense. Iowa State, Kansas, and Texas Tech had over half of them with 7 total. More Tech players than Texas players and Kansas and Iowa State had as many as Texas.

    Even said that he was working "solely" at slot receiver and that he has elite quickness for the position.

    Phil Steele's Preseason Top 25

    Well, the wife and I have a lot of "discussions". One of these days I'm going to be right. So you're saying I'm going to be a stinkin genius when that happens

    Phil Steele's Preseason Top 25

    It is beyond a stretch to put this team in the top 10. Phil was either drunk, high on something, or someone had a gun to his head. We shouldn't even be in the top 25 at this point. Close maybe.

    Del Conte With the "Home Run" Hire in Softball

    Saw this little tidbit on another site. If you look at Oregon’s roster it’s clear White can recruit. He has players, from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, Indiana on their current roster.

    Del Conte With the "Home Run" Hire in Softball

    Mike White will be named the new head coach at Texas, Justin's World of Softball has learned exclusively. The Oregon head coach will leave the Ducks after a nine-year tenure that included five PAC-12 conference championships, including the 2018 title. The Ducks were the #1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament this postseason, and were eliminated in the second round of the Women's College World Series. Oregon made five WCWS appearances under White, including in 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2017 in addition to their '18 berth. The Ducks have appeared in nine straight Super Regionals. Known for his pitching prowess, White shepherded the Oregon staff to a 1.38 cumulative ERA in the 2018 season. Named the Pac-12's Pitcher of the Year, Megan Kleist posted a 1.32 ERA on the year, including a 1.19 mark in conference play. Miranda Elish finished the season with a team-best 1.20 ERA and 249 strikeouts in 175 innings of work. During his tenure with the Ducks, White was three times named the conference Coach of the Year, most recently in 2016. A former men's fastpitch player, White is a member of the ISC Hall of Fame and a bronze medalist from the 2000 World Championships, when he participated as a member of Team USA. White takes the helm of a Longhorns program that has only ever known one coach, Connie Clark. Clark retired earlier this summer after leading Texas to a 33-26 record in the 2018 season, including a 10-8 conference mark and a berth in the NCAA tournament.
  8. Oregon softball coach Mike White is leaving the Ducks to take over the program at the University of Texas. White led the Ducks to 5 Pac 12 titles and to the College World Series 5 times in 6 seasons. http://www.registerguard.com/sports/20180625/oregon-ducks-softball-coach-mike-white-is-leaving-for-texas Del Conte is badass.

    As The Gambler once said, "if you gonna play the game boy, you gotta learn to play it right". If Texas wants to get serious about contending for national championships, we better "learn to play it right". The sooner the better.

    Longhorn News/Discussion (Non-recruiting)

    Surly is definitely a Horns site. Just be forewarned that you will read 100's of posts that are totally irrelevant to the topic of the thread for every one post that contains actual useful information. And, even then, saying "useful" is stretching it. Pretty much the only "value" that site brings is occasionally someone will post "premium" information from one of the paid sites.

    He was a terrible AD. However, that is not what he is being hired to do at Texas. So it's possible that he will be doing something that he is more qualified to do.

    AD Staff Layoffs Have Begun

    Saw this on another site. Draw your own conclusions. Comparisons with other top departments are a good place to start gaining perspective: If Texas cut about 150 positions - a full third of the department - they would be on par with Ohio State in number of employees at ~300, while supporting significantly fewer (almost half) the number of varsity athletic teams - 20 vs 36. Given this, 448 is staggeringly overstaffed.

    AD Staff Layoffs Have Begun

    Seeing several reports that at least 13 AD staff members were laid off today. Not sure how many more are to come. Also saw this little blurb. "according to salary data previously obtained by the Statesman, the UT athletic department had 448 full-time staff members with an aggregate base salary total of approximately $47.3 million. The Longhorns typically have more than 500 athletes, creating almost a 1:1 ratio, something unheard of in major college athletics." Man, it's always unfortunate that people lose their jobs but the bloat in the AD is pretty bad. It had to be only a matter of time.

    2019 Recruiting Board/Thread

    Saw this on The Brainiacs site from one of the mods there who talked to Leal's mom. First, while I have heard first hand accounts of the TAMU staff pressuring some recruits to commit, this was not one of those cases. Leal’s mother made it clear that, though she was surprised by the abrupt commitment, the commitment was just as much a surprise to the TAMU staff. Before the Leal’s took the OV to Texas, they did let Texas A&M know. Leal’s mother said Texas A&M wasn’t exactly thrilled about the idea, but it’s just something that the Leal family feels is best and there probably isn’t a ton TAMU can do.
