Good friend of mine just texted me a picture of him and Ben Crenshaw together throwing up the Hook'em. He played golf with him today in Branson, Mo.

Did he just top my hour of beers with Earl Campbell 20 years ago?


Nope. Pasture pool is okay, but drinking a few with the Tyler Rose is a bucket list thing.

I love listening to Todd Orlando.  Does anyone know the status of Pat Hudson and Kirk Johnson?  Are they back practicing at full strength?  

Edit: I guess I should've read the Spring practice thread.  Sounds like Hudson was back at full go.  Still haven't heard anything about Kirk.  I don't want to write him off, but I want to see him out there.

Is it ever told how many attend Texas spring game? Seemed kinda disappointing on tv. Was told this info is never disclosed 

Attendance was probably down due to all the hub Bub all week about strong and severe storms forecasted for that day.

Nebraska is pretty stoked about Scott Frost. He'll win at Nebraska, but not next year IMO.

Just got through listening to an interview with Malik on local radio (dfw)

He spoke eloquently and represented himself and the University well as he usually does, but 2 things stood out to me. 

1. He said how with Herman, everybody knew what to expect from the other team and how no team did anything that they weren't expecting. Also that the discipline and people that were brought in knew how to behave and meet expectations on and off the field. He tried to explain that it wasn't an issue under the previous staff, but how it was different under Herman.

2. He said that when he was moved to the inside he wasn't given the fundamentals to make the switch successfully. He said he basically went on instinct his first 2 years. He praised Orlando's knowledge of the position and showing him the nuances of the position as well as the proper tecniques.

I thought it was a very telling interview on what may have contributed to CS not being successful in Austin and hopefully what will make Herman a success.

    • Rivals Camp Series Dallas: Prospects talk Texas schools, coaches   Rob Cassidy and Sam Spiegelman Rivals.com COPPELL, Tex. - From Austin to Dallas to College Station to Denton, the state of Texas is home to a whopping 12 FBS teams. So at this weekend’s Rivals Camp Series stop in Dallas, Rivals.com decided to survey some Lone Star State prospects on the in-state programs. Below are a number of answers to four questions dealing with colleges in the Lone Star State.   Which in-state school will win a national title first, and why?           Jimbo Fisher AP Images “Either Texas or Texas A&M. Those are the programs on the rise right now. The way they both performed last year and everything.” -  EJ Smith ***** "Texas. They have been racking up the points the last year. They can do the same thing this year." -  Zeriah Beason ***** "Texas A&M. Their recruiting class was really strong. I think it was third behind Georgia and 'Bama. The guys they're bringing in are top-level recruits. So with them in the mix, with coach (Jimbo) Fisher, if they can get a quarterback that team will be set up." -  Ken Seals ***** "Texas, because last year they blew everyone's minds winning 10 games. I just think they're gonna get better from here on out, just keep getting better." -  Tommy Brockermeyer ***** ‘’Texas A&M. I mean, they have Jimbo Fisher up there establishing things.” -  Jalen Kimber ***** "Probably A&M. I like their recruiting class the past couple of years. Texas had the best chance, but I think they lost a lot of talent. I think this year it'll be Texas A&M, but it's a close race." -  Darius Snow ***** "Texas. They're a young team that beat Georgia last year, also." -  Lorando Johnson ***** "Texas or Baylor. Baylor because two years ago, they were 1-11 and then 7-6. It shows what they're building over there. Texas just won the conference, so they're building something over there. They got five-star recruits, so I'm expecting a lot from them." -  Jaqwondis Burns ***** “Probably Texas. They have a great culture and a great coaching staff. I feel like they’re the up-and-coming team.” -  Korie Black Which in-state school will have the best record this year, and why?       “I don’t know. I don’t want to choose between Texas and Texas A&M, so I’ll just say one of them.” – Smith ***** "Nobody can beat Texas right now. They're unbelievably talented right now at a scary rate, so I got my faith in Teas right now." - Beason ***** "Texas A&M. Coming off a great game against LSU, it was a good turning point for the program, especially in Jimbo Fisher's time there. Going into next season, I think they'll build off what they accomplished last year." - Seals ***** "Texas. They're just getting a lot better, a lot tougher. Their last recruiting class and the class three years straight, they have a bunch of players there and they're about to be really good this year." – Brockermeyer ***** “A&M just because Jimbo,” - Kimber ***** "Baylor is on the come-up. TCU is always scary, especially with  Jalen Reagor . He's the best of the best. If A&M does well in SEC play, though, then Texas A&M." - Snow ***** "Texas, but only because Texas A&M is in the SEC." - Johnson ***** "Texas. Off the season they had from last year with 10 wins, they had a great season and it's hard not to continue that." – Burns ***** “I’m giving this one to Texas, too. They have been building up and getting ready. This might be the year.” – Black Which in-state school's head coach seems the coolest, and why?           Tom Herman AP Images “I think coach Jimbo (Fisher). He brings energy and cares about his players.” – Smith ***** "Matt Rhule. They're all cool in their own way, but I'd give it to Baylor's coach." - Beason ***** "I really like Tom Herman, but I feel like being a quarterback, to play for Coach Fisher is something special. You learn from him and the guys that he's put in the league, but Herman is up there, too." – Seals ***** “Tom Herman. He’s just cool. He loves his players and takes care of those guys.” - Kimber ***** "Jimbo. I went to TCU not too long ago and coach (Gary) Patterson is cool, but I remember when coach Fisher came to the school during basketball season, chopping it up and he's just a cool dude." - Snow ***** "Jimbo. He's a laid-back dude. At least with me he's real laid back." - Johnson ***** "Texas. That dude (Herman) is straightforward. That dude is all about business." – Burns ***** “I haven’t met a lot of the head coaches in Texas but probably Gary Patterson. I like the way he is. He just seems cool.” – Black Which in-state school does the best job recruiting Texas kids?     “Right now, A&M, but I’m just going to say that because that’s how it is with me, you know” - Smith ***** "Baylor, because of coach (Joey) McGuire. He's been in the area for a long time. He coached at Cedar Hill and knows the ins and outs and the recruits in this area the best." - Beason ***** "I'm not hearing from a lot of them, but I feel like Texas does a good job of keeping the guys at home. If you get an offer from Texas and you're from Texas, that's where you want to be. I feel like Texas does a good job of keeping guys at home." – Seals ***** “Tom Herman for sure. Everyone down here really likes him.” – Kimber ***** "Texas or Texas A&M. It's always them two every time for who gets the best Texas recruits. It's always Texas or Texas A&M." - Brockermeyer ***** "Probably Texas or Texas A&M. They're just both family dudes. Coach Herman, coach Fisher, they really sell the best in Texas to stay home." - Snow ***** "A&M. I see them in every school in Texas trying to recruit somebody." - Johnson ***** "Texas. They just got that five-star wide receiver ( Bru McCoy ) and that says it all. They got someone all the way from California, and I've never heard of anyone else doing that." - Burns ***** “It’s either A&M or Texas. I think maybe Texas, because of how many they bring down to campus. When they bring you down there, they make you feel like you are family.” – Black   https://n.rivals.com/news/rcs-dallas-prospects-weigh-in-on-texas-schools-coaches-1
    • I would probably go higher with Watts. My daughter is a Sr. at Little Elm and talks to him everyday. He pretty high on Texas let her tell it. She says he flirts with her all the time. She's gangsta tho and told him that she won't even consider a date with him if he doesn't pick Texas lol
