    2019 Recruiting Board/Thread

    not to be a smart ass.....but I was unaware that we had anyone that pass rushed some....
  2. sure....but a QB generally has to get many,many snaps to show a large enough body of work to be considered by the pros...McIver did not
  3. McIver was never a starter. He would come in late sometimes to try and rescue a game with that big arm.Akers was almost against passing as much as DKR. Anyway, it made for an unusual situation where our backup QB was drafted and had a career in the NFL and our starter was never even considered.

    Initial Thoughts: Texas to play Georgia in Sugar Bowl

    I may be in the minority, but I think we have a great chance against Georgia.Because of Hand we each know each othrs blocking schemes, but when does Georgia get to play a hurry up spread offense? I also think our line backers might be suited to play Georgia's offense. We dont have OU type speed, but we have better than average speed and we have WR's that might give em fits. I dont know that we can run on em, but we might not need to so much....

    Initial Thoughts: Texas to play Georgia in Sugar Bowl

    I am looking forward to it...I know you have to be careful what you wish for, but I am not completely convinced of the secsecsec hype. I dont buy that Bama is the best until they have won it all. I agree the georgia has great Oline and D line but I dont know how much speed they have and if they can handle LJH and CJ. If we play much smarter(this is fixable) than we did against OU, we can win this. I expect Georgia to come out flat and slow starting, as they did not want to be there....stuck with playing a 4 loss team. Maybe Smart can get his guys motivated, but it is an uphill battle. We might, just might be able to jump out to a fair sized lead. As Mike Tyson sid....everyone has a good plan until they get punched in the mouth.

    aggy is already saying the kid didnt do it.....made me think of that scene from Chicago......." He fell on my knife...he fell on my knife 10 times...."
  9. does that mean we can quit paying him?
  10. If the good Sam shows up I think we win a laugher. I am suspect that the bad Sam is still lurking around. At least we on occasion we have a somewhat defense, where as OU has no defense whatever. With good Sam we have no problem scoring 50 on them, but with bad Sam we will only get 30-35 on them. My hope is that enough of the good Sam shines through to get us a 48-45 win. with good Sam we can win a shoot out type game any time.
  11. Blii Parcells said...." a win is ugly for only 1 day" I did not even know that Gary Johnson was suspended for the game and did not play. I hope he can join us next week.

    Commitment Spotlight: Jacoby Jones

    since I am a bit bored and since we were talking about early Cowboy players.....The Cowboys revolutionized the way the NFL scouted players and had quite a jump on the league until everyone else wised up.... Before Gil Brandt, NFL scouts had timed all players in 100yd dash times. Brandt reasoned that they never ran 100 yds so he timed them in the 40 yd dash. He measured vertical jumps when no one else did. The Cowboys got many,many future all pros in the late rounds of the draft.....interesting stuff...

    I did not know that about Hayes. I know Renfro played some at Oregon, but was a running back I think.....but he was there mostly to run hurdles.Green was indeed a BB player.

    Commitment Spotlight: Jacoby Jones

    I am not smart enough to dispute what you say, in fact I agree mostly. I am not so sure that a guy that has not played much at a particular position in HS needs a year red shirt just to learn that position. Maybe not apples to oranges, but I remember what made the Cowboys quickly into a power house in the NFL.....They drafted(or better yet took as free agents) athletes that had not even played football in college and had them playing at All Pro level quickly....some even into the HOF....Mel Renfro, Cornell Green, Bob Hayes among them. They were light years ahead of the rest of the league when it came to scouting. If Warren has the physical tools to play DE then I suspect he will adapt quickly. Now, getting him physically ready might take some time.
