    2019 Recruiting Board/Thread

    I think Johnson may have played himself into a first round take , in which case he should go get his money. LJH could be in the same position....but likely he will need to ball out the rest of the year to get there. He might listen around and decide he needs one more year to move higher. Either way, I for one appreciate what both these guys have given us.

    Ehlinger shoulder update

    I had to double check that because I didnt believe it, but I got the book and there it was in black and white...Texas cannot get a comfortable lead and hold it....Damn!

    Five Thoughts Following The Win Over Baylor

    Why are we even talking about this?....Hell, I wish Colt McCoy or Vince Young were QB for us right now, but the fact is that we either have Shane or a limited Sam as our QB.....period. No sense moaning about what we cant do. We have to develop a game plan that will give whoever starts for us the best chance to win. If it is Shane then we also have to prepare either rising or Thompson to come in at a moments notice. Right now there are only 2 certainties ...#1...we still have to play all of our games with what we have.....and # 2...no one will feel sorry for us.
  4. I dont know where to ask this so I will put it here. What is the deal with our second half collapses?...Are we a poorly conditioned team? We all love McKnight, but I am beginning to wonder. As Towns Van Zandt said....we let em back in the games out of kindness I suppose.....
  5. Polls are out and we moved up to # 7...ahead of Georgia. We will most likely drop a spot next week because of the bye. For some reason, week 6 or week 7 usually sees lots of top 10 teams lose....but the next week, seems like everyone wins. I agree it is early, but i am happy with how we are positioned.....I say lets get by with it as long as we can.

    *****#9 Texas vs. Baylor Game Thread*****

    Frankly, I agree with a lot of what you say.I have been the most guilty of anyone on the board wanting to see Shane when Sam was missing even close guys so badly....I have to learn to be careful what I ask for....but I was not griping about Shane's play...I was in the mode of shaking my fist at the heavens cursing our fate....not real useful. Of course you have the right to state your opinions here and they are just as valid as mine. I have to admit to having trouble rebutting a point such as.."Herman is doing his best to lose this game". I know in the heat of the moment we all say many things and have many opinions.....Besides...Herman is highly paid. I know for a fact if he was trying his best to lose, he would do a better job of it...:) The beauty of being a fan is we can from our couch call for plays, but we dont have to put up with that pesky problem of having to face any consequences when what we call for doesnt work. Anyway...I appoligize if I offended you. Opine away...I know I will continue to do so.

    Five Thoughts Following The Win Over Baylor

    Java said something in the game thread that could well have been addressed to me. I was loudly calling for at least a look at Shane early in the year when Sam was so rammed inaccurate. Well I got my wish and it wasn't pretty. I am happy I wasn't then complaining about how he played. Shane will look better with a game plan developed for him. Sam was beginning to look good, but Shane will be ok.

    I agree...I also thought Baylor must have special license in that they were allowed to tackle our receivers before the ball got there. Another thing...having to develop a new game plan on the fly would be a challenge for any staff. I thought ours did a great job.

    rebut something?...You were whining all game about how Herman was screwing it up...."trying to lose the game"....those statements were ridiculous....You think you know more than the coaches?....

    I agree we are not ready now....but if it turned out that we were 11-1, then I would have to think we were ready as anyone else.

    strange injury. I dont recall seeing a player with a shoulder injury that wasnt in a sling and wrapped up tight with an ice bag in the shoulder wrapping.. I was very encouraged when I say him in the second half working the bench and keeping the guys fired up. The way he was acting at first I feared he might be concussed. Java calmed me down some on that so thanks Java.

    A miss from 40 and 51 doesn't mean he looks like crap
