  1. 2018 Recruiting Board/Thread

    I actually like that. He can spend lots of time with the coaches and players without the distraction of game prep and gameday. I know a game has the pageantry and acivities, but this could have a more personal touch. Still think it's a longshot.

    Well, that might be the last straw. He gone.

    At this point I just want to hold on to what they have, add another Oline target, add R. Perkins, Bobby Brown, and Jamison and run with it. Maybe add WR Bush or Crawford down the line if/when Moore leaves. I know one is a slot and the other is outside, but hey. Key is an Oline target and those 3 defensive targets for me. I've kind of given up hope on Cook and Waddle at this point.

    at my age, the only I can hold is a beer. Maybe my wife, but definately a beer.
  5. Connor Williams Injury Update

    actually, it could've been a lot worse. I have a torn meniscus and it's bothersome, but I can do everything on it. I could've had surgery to clean up debris, but elected not to.
  6. 5 Thoughts Following Texas/USC

    Thanks for the insight. I was just grasping at anything positive moving forward and bracing for potential bad news.
  7. 5 Thoughts Following Texas/USC

    Nice writeup Daniel. I have a question about #3, how ready is JP U. and or Garrett Thomas for backup T if Connor is down for a while? Alex Anderson has some experience, but cant remember how he did at times. Okafor and Nickelson will get the start, but they need capable backups. Obviously the true freshman are not ready, but they need some bodies for backup. Sure are missing Jean Delance about now for depth across the line. Also, any update on Cunney?

    I'm starting to believe with you Dmac, bit the proof will be 11 days from now in Ames. Get back that goose egg from 2 years ago and avenge what is probably the 2nd worse loss in the past 3 years. Gotta stay with Ehlinger from this point forward. Shane might've been Wally Pipped.
  9. QB Update

    I don't need advice to form my own opinions. I've coached HS football for over 20 years and I know players when I see them. You can make a read on players or form opinions off a game or two. I stand by my statements that Sam E. gives the Horns slightly better chance to win based on his capabilities and feel for the game. Some players just have that feel and awareness and I believe Sam has it. He will make mistakes like tonight, but he will also find a way to get it done. That's my opinion and like I said, my opinion doesn't matter because I'm not a paid coach on the UT staff.
  10. Next 5 Games

    If, I say IF, the Horns play like did tonight then I think 3-2 in this stretch is absolutely within reach. I think they can be 4-3 and have a chance to run the table against TT, KU, Baylor, WVU, and YOU. I would be ecstatic with a 9-3 or 8-4 record. With all that said, I'm cautiously optimistic because I felt this way after OU 2 years ago and ND last year. Can they sustain this level of play and turn the corner?

    great guts and great determination by this team no matter how it ends up. I hope for the good guys to win though.
  12. *****Texas vs. USC Game Thread*****

    this team is snakebit. The Oline needs help quickly or they will have 2 hurt QBs.
  13. QB Update

    Normally, I would agree with you 100%, but I'm not so sure on this. I don't think Sam is as accurate as Shane, but from the little I saw last week and in the Spring game, it appears Sam processes his reads a little faster than Shane. I think both are highly competitive and will do anything to win, but Sam is just bigger and adds another element in the QB scramble/elusiveness category that Shane tries to do but he's just below Sam's capability. I was all for hopefully not playing Sam this year and giving him a full year. However, that is out the window now and in my opinion I think Sam gives this team the best chance to win. Shane also gives this team an opportunity to win, but I just think Sam increases the odds. Sam will struggle at times, as all freshman do, but he seems to have that intangible of knowing the defense. I'm not bashing Shane and would be fine with his as the starter, but I cringe every time he gets hit. No question he is tough, but his body just hasn't caught up with his mental toughness. These are just my opinions and I could be way wrong and Texas sure isn't calling me for my opinions so it's a moot point.

    Just curious but is there anything to these recent LB offers? Is there potential wavering by our current commits and this is plan b?
