  1. Let me preface this by saying as always, thanks SHA for answering noob questions like mine. Do you have a good way to determine exactly what type of grass you have? I pulled some samples from my lawn and am having trouble telling if it is centipede or bermuda. I had St Augustine growing up and it is not that...the blades are very thin. I am in the north DFW area. I ask because it looks like some lawncare products can damage if used with the wrong grass type. I need to fertilize and also get rid of the Dichondra which is spreading from the high shade areas. Maybe instead of getting a single solution there is fertilizer that is safe for anything, and separately I can kill the Dichondra?
  2. What time of day should the sprinklers be running for the spring? Early morning?

    2019 Recruiting Board/Thread

    Is there no one in this kids life that can tell him that Jimbo has no leverage and he can do whatever he wants?
  4. A couple quick questions for SHA or anyone else who reads this thread. Adding fresh mulch over ground that has dormant grass from last year. Do I need to try to remove the grass roots, or will the fresh mulch prevent it from coming back? Wild rabbits get into my backyard under the fence gate, so I added some soil under it to close the gap, and they just burrowed a new path. Is burying chickenwire the only solution? I don't want to have something to step over when going through the gate. Thanks.

    2018 Recruiting Board/Thread

    List of schools that have a commitment from a top 250 ranked player at each of the following positions; QB, RB, TE, WR, OL, DL, LB, DB. Texas Georgia Ohio State has all except QB. Everyone focuses on the DB haul, but having a stud at every position is how you build a team with no weaknesses. Pretty impressive.

    Poor OL means we can't get easy yards rushing, are put in bad down and distance situations, and the defense can play the pass. Combine that with the fact that Sam is hesitant in his reads, and not accurate deep, and really there is nothing that stresses the defense. If there were plays that could overcome all of that, I'm sure any idiot could call them. Back to 2018 recruiting...any unsigned kids at the UA game our guys can work on?

    I don't expect to see the class fall apart. These kids know it wasn't them losing games...when they get to Texas they will never lose!! I think we missed a chance to be one of the "storylines" of the season. If we could have gone 8-4 with a win over USC or OU or OSU, we could have attracted attention from recruits nationwide. But we are still going to add a lot of talent to the roster.
  11. For the "Jefferson shot out of a cannon" play...while his athleticism is pretty amazing, I think that play is a positive for a different reason. ISU ran the same play in the second quarter with 3:10 left to play. They motion #19 across the formation and have him run out to the flat, while the 2 outside receivers clear out the DBs and try to cause traffic for Hill, who is in man coverage. It works for a 9 yard gain. They run it again in the 4th quarter on 4th down, and Hill seems to recognize it and get across to close the distance a lot faster. You can see Park looking in that direction and hesitating, which is when the Predator strikes. Good on Hill and/or the coaching staff to make an adjustment.

    5 Thoughts Following Texas/USC

    What is strange is with 10 seconds left in the first half Herman called a timeout and decided not to play prevent defense, but then with 5 seconds left did. Also played prevent defense with 45 left in the 4th. I know that they like the idea of McCulloch and Hager rushing, but I thought it was too obvious that they would try to get the edge, and all Darnold had to do was step up and deliver. I wish they would have rushed 4 with the 2 inside guys staying in front of Darnold. As far as Warren goes, I know everyone says he should have got the ball more, but that is a lazy complaint. Go back to the game and the actual individual situations...down and distance, defensive alignment, capabilities of the OL, and see if a Warren run would have been a "better" play. Maybe it was a bunch of times, maybe it wasn't, I haven't watched it on replay yet. But it sure seemed like as I was watching it live that SC was selling out to stop the run and/or get pressure on the QB. Running Warren may not have helped. People would have been pissed with 1st down run for 2 yards, 2nd down run for 2 yards, 3rd and 6 every time. Maybe the only solution is a better OL and a more experienced QB that can make a defense pay. I hate to pick on individual players, but unless the coaches somehow told him to do it, I don't see how you put Hemphill back for punts again until he earns your trust.

    I think 8-4 is more likely than 10-2...I just get nauseated at the thought of losing to Okie state for a third straight year, or TCU for a 4th.

    With nothing much else going on, may as well predict next season... Maryland - W San Jose State - W USC - L ISU - W KSU - W OU - W OSU - W Baylor - W TCU - W KU - W WVU - L TTU - W I don't know if this team is a 10-2 type team yet, but I also think this is certainly possible. I think the middle of the season (KSU, OU, OSU, TCU) will be huge, I want revenge against all of those teams, and I refuse to think there is any good reason why we can't take 3 out of 4.
  15. During his press conference Herman mentioned the potential for one of these guys to watch film and see a specific tendency or weakness in an opponent, which leads to calling a play at a certain time to win the game. He basically said if you can afford it, which Texas can, you should do it, as long as you trust the guys.
