  1. I really like the way the new AD is bringing back pride and spirit back to town. Some of his plans may seem a little grand but the formation of a Texas Hall of Fame at DKR is a great start, along with other game day improvements... What really impressed me is that he wants UT pride to be throughout the state not just within the confines of the Austin City limits. I think that Herman has the right man to help him bring the program back to National prominence, and get the band wagon fans to sign on for more than just a casual ride.. I think he is going to make it cool to once again be Longhorn proud off the field...and I think Herman will give us a product to be proud of on the field

    Commitment Spotlight: Tre Watson

    wasn't Tre a blue chipper from SL Carroll, and the son of Nate Newton...I think he will help immediately...all upside
  3. thats what I am talking about....does the QB we start determine if the OL is a pass protecting pocket scheme or with Sam ,is the OL a read option type scheme.... the consensus here says the OL is the key to success, but does our personnel favor a pocket passer or a read option QB... all I know as a Horn fan is I want one QB, one that puts points on the scoreboard and doesn't turn the ball over which puts points on the opposition board
  4. here is a question to ponder...will the OL determine who we start at QB ?
  5. VCU to TEXAS was too large a jump...lets cut our losses now and go shopping for a new HC...Smart is way in over his head

    Texas Lands 5-Star Athlete Jordan Whittington

    there isnt a QB in the state that wouldn't want to throw to this guy...This could be the start of a very special class in 2019

    Team News

    I like that Herman is keeping with the team rules...with all the blue chippers they signed it tells me that ALL the jobs are wide open next year...I think we will see a whole different squad next year with a whole new attitude..This year was transition time...

    RIP Tommy Nobis

    One of the greatest players to ever wear the Burnt Orange, the story goes that DKR and his staff were concerned over who was going to wear the #60 after Johnny Treadwell, Nobis not only exceeded Treadwell but insured a legacy that will live forever in the history of the Longhorns Its too bad that only a few of us on here were old enough to get to see him play and realize he was the gold standard in college linebacker..the Butkis Award should have been named for him

    Texas to face Missouri in Texas Bowl

    I am ready for closure on this first year of the Tom Herman era..I am excited to see what kind of a recruiting class he can bring in. I guess we will find out who really wants to be here and be a part of the new attitude and culture that Herman brings to the table... To the outgoing Seniors, Thank you for your time on the 40 Acres, sorry that you weren't exactly set up for success, but I for one appreciate your loyalty to Longhorn Nation
  10. I am flipping channels between the FAU/UNT game and the Big 12 Game and cant see WHY we cant run a dynamic wide open offense like these schools play..We have the athletes...
  11. I cant believe Im saying this but the person that needs to mentor Tom Hermann is........Mack Brown

    Longhorns Going Bowling, but Where?

    after last night debacle, they dont deserve a bowl appearance, but I guess for the good of the program they need to go..It remains to be seen which team will show, I sure hope its not the team we saw last night
  13. I am mad, disappointed, and to be honest NOT surprised....This bunch does not have that winning killer attitude, I hope and pray next year's version has more moxie and more heart....and a bit more talent We Texas fans deserve better...I hope that Hermann makes the adjustments necessary and recruits the type of talent needed to compete and win at a national level

    Longhorns Going Bowling, but Where?

    where we want them to go and where they are contractually bound to go might be two different things.....
