  1. New Title For Derek Warehime?

    Hmmmm, Super K reported the following breakdown: Drew Mehringer coaches outside wide receivers. Corby Meekins coaches inside wide receivers. Herb Hand takes over tight ends and offensive tackles. Derek Warehime would then have interior offensive linemen. LOL, seems like this is a work in progress?
  2. *****Texas vs. Texas Tech Game Thread*****

    Huge win for the good guys last night. As you can imagine, the Tech fans were "super classy" at the end of the game.
  3. BREAKING: Texas Hires TCU AD Chris Del Conte

    http://www.hookemplus.com/story/longhorns-ad-chris-del-conte-texas-needs-get-back-texas-period/ New Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte is going around meeting every team on campus. When he met with men’s basketball players, he had a simple request. “Everyone take out your phones,” Del Conte told them, according to two people who were in the room. “Here is my number. Call me anytime.”
  4. *****TCU vs. TEXAS Game Thread*****

    Huge win on a very emotional night. Some thoughts: (1) We just beat a Top-20 team (that shot 15-27 from 3) without our best offensive player, best perimeter defender, and Bamba being in foul trouble. I know it was frustrating at times, but I'm willing to cut Shaka a little slack considering all those factors. Full disclosure though, I think I'm becoming one of the bigger Shaka apologists on this board. (2) Obviously I'm watching the game as a fan in the stands, but seriously...the refs killed us tonight. There were some downright terrible calls, with many of them coming at crucial times in the game. (3) If Bamba stays out of foul trouble, Texas wins that game in regulation by an 8 to 12 point margin. TCU didn't make their run until Mo went to the bench with his 4th foul. (4) Now that Shaka doesn't have Andrew and Kerwin, he has to give Jacob more minutes. Jacob only played 9 minutes and was 3-4 from the field (2-3 from 3). This team needs shooters, and for better or worse, Jacob is one of the better shooters on this team.
  5. Andrew Jones diagnosed with Leukemia

    Terrible news. Thoughts and prayers go out to this young man.

    Unfortunately, it sounds like they don't know specifically what's wrong with Andrew. Not good. As for Baylor, we definitely have a shot. I know they're dealing with the injury bug right now, but not sure if they're going to be full strength for this game. I think Pomeroy gives us a 40% chance of winning this game.

    This is unfortunate news... https://www.hookem.com/mens-sports/mens-basketball/wrist-fine-now-texas-guard-andrew-jones-battling-unidentified-illness Texas guard Andrew Jones has moved beyond his fractured wrist injury that kept him out of four games in December. He’s now battling an unidentified illness that is robbing the sophomore’s energy. “He just, to this point, has not had the energy,” coach Shaka Smart said Thursday. “So we’re trying to figure out through the different testing what his ailment is. There’s something else, some type of sickness.” A team spokesman said Jones was under the weather during Monday’s game against Iowa State. Jones played only 11 minutes and had eight points with one steal and one turnover. He was averaging 15.3 points before suffering a fractured wrist during two falls against Virginia Commonwealth on Dec. 5. That injury kept Jones out of the next four games. He returned against Kansas in the Big 12 opener but was limited. Smart said then Jones had to get back into game shape. But it’s clear now that Jones is battling something else. “I’d love to have him back to 1,000 percent today. But he’s not just been feeling like himself,” Smart said. “It’s not for lack of trying,” the coach added. “He goes out there and really, really wants to play, obviously and wants to help his team. But he just, to this point, has not had the energy.” The Longhorns (10-4, 1-1 Big 12) will need all available bodies as the league season progresses. Texas next plays at Baylor on Saturday and returns home to face TCU on Wednesday.

    I know there's division among the fan base when it comes to Shaka, and even though I still fully support him, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed with his tenure thus far. However, this article is downright stupid... https://www.vivathematadors.com/2018/1/3/16845068/its-already-time-to-sign-chris-beard-to-an-extension-texas-tech "Shaka Smart is the most overrated basketball coach in the country. Slowly, Texas is realizing that. He inherited a winning culture at VCU from Anthony Grant and Jeff Capel and rode that success and hype all the way to a dream job at the University of Texas. "Smart posted an abhorrent 31-35 record during his first two years at Texas, irrationally citing “youth and inexperience” as the reason for his team’s poor performances. Meanwhile, teams that start between three and five true freshmen like Kentucky continue to win 30 or more games each season, so I’m not sure why everyone has so readily accepted that excuse." "If the Longhorns fail to make it at least to the Sweet Sixteen, I don’t envision a scenario where new athletic director Chris Del Conte doesn’t kick Smart to the side and pluck the brilliant Chris Beard from Tech’s grasping hands." So a few points this writer may want to consider: (1) Kentucky's class in 2017 was ranked No. 2 and had 6 5-star recruits (ranked 10, 11, 12, 15, 18 and 26 nationally). Texas' class was ranked No. 6, but we only had 1 5-star recruit (Bamba, ranked No. 3 nationally). Kentucky's class in 2016 was once again ranked No. 2 and had 5 5-star recruits (ranked 6, 9, 11, 15, and 23 nationally). Texas' class was again ranked No. 6, but we only had 2 5-star recruits (Allen and Jones, ranked 17 and 29 nationally). To say we can't replicate what Kentucky is doing with true freshmen is downright moronic. (2) As far as Tech's team goes, when you look at minutes per game, 4 of their top 6 players are seniors; (3) 2 of their top 4 scorers are seniors (and their leading scorer is a senior); (4) Their leading rebounder? You guessed it...a senior; and (5) Their top-2 assist leaders are seniors.

    Sounds like Elko's salary is $1.8 million per year for 3 years.

    Found the comments I was thinking of from Seahorn and Roach back when he was being recruited. Thanks though.

    Amazing what happens when Kansas goes 6-26, as opposed to 17-35, from 3.

    Daniel, what about Kerstetter? Am I crazy or at one point did y'all talk about him being better suited for guard or center?
