  1. Bilas Index, Volume 1

    Jay Bilas calling a Duke game is worse than listening to the lunatic Bill Walton call a game. Bilas made it seem like Texas was the worst bunch of degenerates he had ever seen and gave Duke a pass every chance he got. That occurred while Texas was up 10+ points until late in the 2nd half. What a blowhard.
  2. Weekly Film Review: USC (by Ryan Bridges)

    Great breakdown, Ryan! This is easily the best analysis of the football game each week. The Cade Brewer touchdown was almost an exact copy of the play the UH offense would run over the past two years, with Herman and Applewhite calling that same play to McCloskey of UH on numerous occasions in the red zone. I was at the game on Saturday, and the jump pass by Darnold was incredible. The blitz was on Darnold in half a second. Darnold shuffled his feet forward quickly and immediately released it over the top. There's not really anything the D can do about that. His first touchdown pass was just as good in terms of touch and timing. It was a great game, and I am hopeful that the team will continue to build off of it.
  3. Ridiculous call and ejection. This umpire needs to get thicker skin. Pathetic.
  4. A well-deserved firing. I mentioned the poor guard coaching a few times during the season. I just wish Lucas could be demoted as well - it was a horrible offseason decision to make him an assistant. Both Cason and Jai Lucas have done a terrible job with the guards this year. There has been no improvement with the system offense, shooting, passing, or really anything from the guards. Cason really did not get any improvement from the guards last year for most of the season. Hopefully this move will improve our current coaching situation, and maybe Shaka will actually try to run his offense next season. If not, see you later, Shaka.

    Here's a quick take on where Texas basketball has improved, and where it has been poor. Decent or improved during the past two seasons: Defensive system Frontcourt offense - improvement from Ibeh, Cleare, Allen Rebounding - improved after slow starts in both seasons Bad or did not improve: Turnovers Shooting Guard play Offensive system I'm not sure who's in charge of the guards and the offensive system, but I think that's where I think significant changes need to be made.
  6. Texas Junior Day Breakdown

    How soon can we get DBU rolling again? I'm really excited about the defensive back recruits in this class. Any chance we see a commit from a DB before the end of the summer?

    When I think about the basketball team, I keep going back to Smart demoting Morrell in favor of Jai Lucas. Last year's team, while inconsistent, certainly seemed to improve under the assistant coaching of Cason and Morrell. I understand retaining Lucas for recruiting reasons, but the coaching has gotten worse this year, and I don't think it's solely because of Smart. There was continuity with the trio of Cason, Morrell, and Smart that might have changed by promoting Lucas.
  8. 2018 Recruiting Board/Thread

    I don't know much about the 2018 class yet, but I do know that there are a lot of good players in the Houston area this year. Should we expect a lot of them to be heading out of state, or do you think they will be willing to hear out Herman, Sumlin, Morris, etc.? If Texas can keep them within range and have a good start to the season, I see no reason why we can't get a couple of 5 stars this cycle.
  9. Patrick Hudson Transferring???

    What a relief! I don't think anyone wanted to go through another saga with him again.
  10. Eno Benjamin's Patience Finally Pays Offs...

    Is Eno the running back Texas has been pursuing hard, or are we still working on getting someone like Dobbins?

  12. Report: Art Briles to Interview for Houston Job

    The official statement from UH is you can take your arrogance and shove it up your own ass. We will never be desperate enough to want you back.
  13. Report: Art Briles to Interview for Houston Job

    That's simply not true.
  14. Report: Art Briles to Interview for Houston Job

    Yeah, it was false. The Houston AD himself said that Briles contacted him and they weren't interested.
  15. Friday Chat: All Questions Welcome

    It's not going to be possible to get energetic performances because the team has so little depth. Not sure why Shaka wouldn't have just picked up an additional 2 or 3 star player just to have some depth to run his system on defense. Guard play has been atrocious, and it's arguably the most important part of a Shaka-coached team. There's been little improvement from Roach and Davis.
