  1. ***National Signing Day 2 Thread***

    Maybe mom got something from 'bama for getting her son's name on the dotted line. Now she lost "it". But, she found out the Florida was willing to go a little higher and she came back. just hypothetically speaking.
  2. The guy is 16 years old? Can you imagine a 17 yo playing against 22 yo's. Normally I wouldn't even consider it. If he continues to get better and excel, he'll be a monster by the time he is 18.
  3. 24 Second Time Clock

    Whaaaaat?!? Should a defense not disguise their play? Should the QB be blindfolded until 10 seconds left on the play clock? Should coaches not be allowed to use headsets? It's a chess match. There is nothing preventing a defense from shifting into another alignment. There is nothing preventing a QB from calling an audible. Who's to say they actually change/call the play at that time? Maybe it's a ploy to get the defense to change what they were going to do.
  4. If I had a dollar....

    I'm from a different generation. You don't do stuff like that....but he didn't start it, he just finished it. If your opponent doesn't respect you, then it's on you to teach them a lesson.
  5. Andrew Jones Fractured His Wrist

    This hurts a little. Texas hasn't had a consistent shooter in a while. It seems the "great" shooters in high school cool off when they get to Texas.
  6. Longhorns Going Bowling, but Where?

    I'm guessing Texas Bowl. If OU beats TCU I think TCU drops out of the New Year's Eve bowls and falls to the Alamo bowl.
  7. Helmets

    That's pretty cool. I forgot Saturday is Veteran's day. Will probably see some in uniform for the game.
  8. Mack Brown for AD?

    no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
  9. Staff Predictions: Texas vs. Iowa State

    This game scares me. But someone much smarter than me said "Have a little faith, baby. Have a little faith" So I'm saying Tom Herman makes a difference with this team because last year this team would tank. UT 35 ISU 10
  10. Poona Ford

    I've always believed that in college, lineman are better in their junior and senior years. The main reason is that there can be a huge difference in an 18 yo's body and a 22-23 yo. No matter how talented you are, a bigger, stronger, more experienced person can beat you 4 out of 5 times. Sure we got some great talent but they're young. Poona took a couple of years before he started to make a name for himself. Now that he's a senior, he's bigger, stronger and more experienced.
  11. Texas vs OU

    Get to the game early. If you are parking, you want to park in the Fair lots. You can take your changes in someone's front lawn, but....you might get parked in or worse. One year I parked in some strip center a couple of blocks away. If it says "No Parking", don't park there just because of bunch of other people did. If you're taking the mass transit, expect a long wait. The closer to the fair you are, the longer the wait. Maybe I'll see you there.
  12. 5 Thoughts Following Texas/USC

    I'm encouraged by how our defense played. If USC is as good as everyone says they are then we have a championship defense. We just need a good offense and we're back in business. With that said, let's see what happens at Ames. The D needs to keep this high level of play and the O should have a slightly easier time. This team has potential, but then so have other Texas teams.
  13. Next 5 Games

    When was the last time Texas smacked anyone in the mouth? With Mack Brown's last few teams we were "soft". Charlie Strong was supposed to change that label, but he could never be consistent enough to not get smacked around in Ames and Lawrence. I'm not sure Texas is ready to smack anyone in the mouth and stand up to them. I can't wait until we have a team that just b!tch slaps everyone--cupcakes as well as top 10 teams.
  14. The 4-2-5 only works if the DL and Linebackers can stop the run. Look what Maryland did. And if you have a running QB, you're outnumbered unless you bring in a safety for run support. After 2 games, I'm not sure we have the personnel to play a 4-2-5 consistently and stop the run.
  15. Week 1 Prediction: Horns vs Terps

    I'm betting the farm on this one... I predict the score will be 0-0 before the game starts.
