  1. 2018 Recruiting Board/Thread

    Pool is a legacy for Arkansas? Bumper Pool has to be on the “All Name Club!”
  2. Garbage might be a bit harsh; just the man’s opinion. We all love Sam’s moxie. But he is far from a finished product. I agree with you okihorn; I think Sam’s ceiling is much higher than where he stands as a TF. But moxie aside, there are some glaring weaknesses that need to be addressed or else Eastexhorn’s post may prove to be insightful.
  3. By the way, you left out OSU which is probably the most grievous. Not to nitpick...
  4. I am thrilled with the win and join the chorus, singing the praises of Sam Ehlinger. He is a fearless, competitor that the team seems to respond to! That being said, he had better mature out of brain dead decisions at critical points in football games. My football watching pals were trying to sell me on the “Bret Farve, gunslinger” nonsense and how you have to take the good with the bad. BOLOGNA! That throw on first down at the goal line puts a high school freshman on the bench. It’s outright football dumb and verywell could have cost Texas the game. This isn’t the first instance either which causes me great concern. I love the kid, but gunslinger or not someone really needs to get his attention in this area. Bravo Texas, we are clearly moving in the right direction for the first time since Colt went down.
  5. Nice win today! 7-5 with a bowl win and I call this season a "success" especially when injuries are considered. I hate to be a downer, but Ehlinger had better grow out of these stupid plays he tends to make at the most inopportune times (USC, OU, OSU and now WVU). The guy is great... great competitor and all. But he could have cost us the game with that ridiculous pick, in a situation when we were in essence putting the game away! I love the kid but that was beyond "needing to mature." It was football dumb for a middle school QB. But we are having fun today.
  6. The call on D Davis for unsportsmanlike conduct was equally ridiculous. Especially when they later waved off a similar call on West Virginia and explained "the players were just continuing the play." We certainly didn't get any help.
  7. Cade Brewer OUT vs West Virginia

    I know.... excuses are like....... they all stink. But this is crazy. Who is our fourth string TE again? Beck, Gray, Brewer
  8. Cade Brewer OUT vs West Virginia

    You beat me to it. I can't remember a year with more injuries.

    Recruiting enthusiasts are an easy target for the recruiting tweet overreaction.

    Agree.... if next year is anything other than another "rebuilding year" which Texas coaches are allowed very few.... I would try to sign a minimum of 3 JUCO offensive linemen. I remember one of Charlie Strong's early declarations that he prefers extra linemen to skill players in recruiting. I know circumstances are impossible to predict, but it is interesting that in year 1 post CS, we are witnessing a desperately depleted OL and an embarrassment of riches at WR.
  11. Five Thoughts Following The Win Over Kansas

    I think the larger point is that it takes a rare, rare talent like.... Barry Sanders to be productive at RB with a poor offensive line. I would submit that Eric Metcalf did it here at Texas. The line played much better last year, with many of the same players. Foreman was not the totality of the difference. Heck, Warren III looked like a future star behind last year's line / scheme. I personally don't understand why the OL coach / scheme doesn't receive a bit more scrutiny. I'm not saying "fire them" and Daniel does make salient points. We just seem misguided by who we scrutinize sometimes.
  12. Five Thoughts Following The Win Over Kansas

    Please tell me this is not going to be the new "Erbody!" I don't think I can take that.
  13. Five Thoughts Following The Win Over Kansas

    I was agreeing with you.... I don't think you were using hyperbole.
  14. Five Thoughts Following The Win Over Kansas

    I would like to scorn you for useless hyperbole; but I can't.
