That’s not going to be put out on a message board. And there are certainly no agendas involved. 

Daniel, I definitely wasn't talking about you having an agenda. And I apologize if it sounded like that. Man, I give you props for you work. I read pretty much all the UT related sites and your work, and your integrity, will stand up with anyone's. 

But when it comes to sources, I do believe that they certainly have agendas and, if they don't, they certainly have biases. And I do understand that you, or anyone else, would never divulge your sources. And that's as it should be.

Wilson and us, or Wilson and OSU?

Wilson and Texas staff. Wilson says no issues with staff at all. Maybe it was all bs or he's trying to keep a lid on something that's gone public. Who knows, but should take the kid's word without better intel.

My apologies. Misunderstood what you were saying.

I wouldn’t expect a kid to go on the record and say anything that would be damaging to a school actively recruiting him. 

With that said, what is said off the record is much different story and is often where a lot of insight in tidbits come from.

Yeah, nowhere to go here.

Who is our next commit, Daniel?

Pretty good read. People exciting about this team

 

Per TFB 

To be honest, starting to feel more and more optimistic about this team and the prospects for this season and the future.

***I asked a source, very simply, is this offense actually better than last years.

The answer I received was equally as simply but the most exciting sourced note I’ve received in a while…

“The offense is light years ahead of where it was last year”.

***While they aren’t starter, two guys I’m hearing a lot about in recent days in Junior Angilau and Sam Cosmi. Texas just hasn’t had enough guys in the past number of years to be elite on the offensive line and certainly haven’t had enough depth. What I’m hearing about Angilau and Cosmi makes me more optimistic about the kind of talent that’s coming into the program.

Source said, “Angilau is f***** special. Him and Cosmi are competing in a way that is, frankly, exciting. The future is bright with those guys. You’ll see them this year. They may not be starters but they’re creating more intense competition and they’re guys who mark an upward trend in the cieling of offensive linemen at Texas”.

***Related to the note above, a source praised Keondre Coburn saying, “Keondre penetrates. People do not stop Keondre Coburn when he bull rushes”.

Although apparently, Angilau is not “people” because I’m told he straight stoned Coburn yesterday at practice.

***I know some have been asking about why Calvin Anderson isn’t running with the 1st team when the media is at practice and what it might mean.

I was told once again, “That is Calvin’s spot” regardless of the current rotation. Source added that while our guys have seen Okafor at left tackle, “Okafor is going to be your right tackle”.

***Texas needs as many weapons as possible on the offensive side of the ball and I’m told a guy to keep on eye on is freshman, Keontay Ingram. It sounds like, based on his current development trajectory, he is, at some point in camp or this season, going to surge up the depth chart.

One source said, “his feet and vision are elite. In fact he sees so much that sometimes he wants to do too much instead of just taking the yards that are there. He’s just not disciplined right now because he sees so much and he wants it all.”

But again, I’m told he’s going to make a move up the depth chart if he continues on his current path.

***I’m told Kris Boyd is just vicious. He’s hitting anything that moves. Was told at one point yesterday he destroyed the blocker, kept his feet moving and then destroyed the ball carrier.

***Source also talked about how in the second year in Orlando’s defense more guys are further along in their understanding of what Orlando wants. That means, more guys can play faster. I’m told that despite the losses, they are not only playing faster but they’re even more violent…

Speaking of violent, gotta give it up to our designer, Stamps, he killed this Todd Orlando edit…

That TFB post was the therapy that I needed to read.. thanks. 

I pray that this team is the one we have been waiting for 

Yea sucks I put it in wrong spot. But was refreshing to read. I can’t wait till sep 1st to see the offense. I’d be thrilled for the comments “it was good but, it’s maryland” that would be promising

I'm not worried about the offense but I am scared SH*TLESS that Beck will still call plays (horribly wrong again) and F it up.  

Maybe its the past with Mack Brown keeping Diaz 1 year too long or Charlie keeping EVERY coach 1 year too long.
