You underestimate Saban. He probably put that picture up for Xavion since he's a UT lean. If he a had been an aggie lean then it would have been an Alabama picture beating the aggies or whatever team leads for him. 

Saban looks for any advantage he can find. He's always looking at the big picture.:)

 

Well, if you're limited to Saban's personal thoughts on that strategy, yes. But if you're not – it sure looks like its a big deal to beat Texas, doesn't it? lol

After a little research I have to confer with SHA, it’s a big deal to beat Texas. 

This picture was taken in Saban’s office in 2014

Yeah, I think he said that already. Saban is not God. God would have considered the fact that Saban just gave Texas a huge amount of credit – AND DIDN'T HAVE TO.

For a fan base that knows the Horns down is still publicity, I'm surprised to point this out a second time.

The reason is that was Saban's first National Champion at Alabama. He had won a NC at LSU, however I don't think it would go over too well if he had that picture on his wall.:)

I do agree it's a big deal to beat Texas because we are hated.:)

Ranking the Top 10 Freshmen for the 2019 College Football Season

 

 

Bru McCoy, Texas Wide Receiver

The hype surrounding Texas wide receiver Bru McCoy is immense, especially considering how his first few months of college football played out.

The 5-star athlete committed to the USC Trojans at the All-America Bowl, enrolling in school a short time later. It didn't take long for him to change his mind.

After offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury left for the Arizona Cardinals in January, McCoy transferred to Texas, a school that finished runner-up for his services the first time. 

Now, there's optimism McCoy will get an NCAA hardship waiver to play immediately, much like what happened with Ohio State's Justin Fields and Miami's Tate Martell. If that happens, Texas will get an instant-impact stud.

The Longhorns are integrating McCoy into the offense this spring with hopes he'll be ready. If so, there's a good chance he'll be in the rotation if not a starting weapon for quarterback Sam Ehlinger. With Lil'Jordan Humphrey gone, there are receptions to go around.

Coach Tom Herman can't stop gushing about McCoy.

"You should see the kid in the weight room," Herman told 247Sports' Jeff Howe. "He's grunting and groaning and screaming. He's not afraid to work," also mentioning McCoy is "just a great kid that happens to be a 5-star athlete."

It's not just lip service. McCoy is a physically gifted talent and is ready to be a star. If the NCAA ruling is favorable, he will be.

Ask Farrell: Can Texas A&M sustain its in-state momentum?

 
Adam Gorney and Mike Farrell
Rivals.com

 

The state of Texas has become ground zero for recruiting battles as Oklahoma remains a national power, Texas is trying to re-emerge as one, Texas A&M is quickly rebuilding under coach Jimbo Fisher and LSU among others have had tremendous success recruiting there.

If everything is bigger in Texas, so are the efforts made to land the state’s best players especially with Lincoln Riley, Tom Herman, Fisher and many other high-profile coaches competing against each other for five- and four-star studs.

Last recruiting cycle, the Sooners had tremendous success in Texas especially landing five-star receivers 

 and   along with numerous four-stars.

The Longhorns failed to land any of the state’s top seven prospects, but four-star athlete 

 could be a game-changer and Texas finished with the fourth-best class nationally behind only Georgia, Alabama and LSU. Fittingly, Oklahoma and Texas A&M were right behind the Longhorns.

Texas A&M had a great haul as well especially with in-state prospects. The Aggies landed the state’s top player in five-star defensive end 

 and they were the only team to have three signees among the top six as five-star offensive lineman   and five-star defensive back   were also in the fold.

FARRELL'S TAKE

We ask Rivals.com National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell whether he thinks Texas A&M won the state last recruiting cycle and whether the Aggies could continue that level of dominance with their 2020 class?

“I’d give the edge to Texas A&M when it comes to last year’s in-state recruiting but not by much. Oklahoma did a great job recruiting out of state in Texas and the Longhorns added some serious talent as well, but the Aggies have the edge. Will that continue? I have no idea. This is going to be one of the best recruiting battles to follow and the state of Texas is up for grabs. All of the coaches, including Ed Orgeron at LSU, are great recruiters and it’s anyone’s state. My gut says Texas will overtake the state in 2020 and beyond, but the competition is fierce.”

This sucks. Defensive line are the hardest to recruit. There's not enough to go around.

I checked and Clemson has commitments from 3 out of the top 7 DT and Alabama has commitments from 2 out of the top 4 DE.

    • TWO OF OHIO STATE'S TOP REMAINING RECRUITING BATTLES SET TO FEATURE RYAN DAY VS. TOM HERMAN SHOWDOWNS By Andrew Ellis on June 25, 2019 at 1:05 pm @teddyheisman OSU FOOTBALL RECRUITING Email this ArticleShare on RedditShare on TwitterShare on Facebook169 34 COMMENTS We're on the heels of the biggest recruiting weekend of the year and Ohio State's 2020 picture is a bit more clear than it was just five short days ago. The addition of Clark Phillips was a huge add for Jeff Hafley and the Buckeye secondary and 2021 wideout Jayden Ballard gives Brian Hartline another big piece to the future wide receiver room. While more good news is certainly coming over the next handful of days, there's been plenty of movement with a particular pair of Ohio State targets. Five-star tailback Bijan Robinson and four-star safety Lathan Ransom are without a doubt two of Ryan Day's top remaining targets for the Class of 2020, and the Buckeyes will look to outduel a familiar foe for the Tucson teammates.  Ohio State has had success in Texas of late with the likes of Jeffrey Okudah, Baron Browning, J.K Dobbins, and Garrett Wilson all finding their way to Columbus. Wilson's recruitment was the one that really came down to the Buckeyes and in-state Longhorns. But Tom Herman has the program heading in the right direction following a 10-win season that included a win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. After a number of head-to-head battles with Urban Meyer – including a victory for four-star 2018 Houston corner Anthony Cook – Herman and his staff are now duking it out with Ryan Day. This time it's for two of the top prospects in the Grand Canyon State. It's worth noting that Ohio State and Texas aren't the only players involved here. USC is also in the picture for Robinson while Notre Dame and LSU are factors in the Ransom recruitment. However, it definitely feels like both recruitments are going to come down to the Buckeyes and Longhorns.  On the Bijan Robinson front, he was in Columbus two weeks ago and spent this past weekend in Austin. There were positive vibes after visiting Ohio State with several members of his family in tow, but cautious optimism was the play there considering what went down with fellow five-star Kendall Milton and his post-Columbus trips to SEC country. The Buckeyes could really use an elite back to help complete what's already a stellar group of talent on offense. Robinson and Milton have been the top guys for some time now, but the 6-foot, 200-pound Tucson product is without question the more likely option now that both have finished up their official visits.  If you follow this stuff on Twitter, you probably have picked up on the emoji game and how certain staffs use them to announce a commitment. Based on a tweet from Bryan Carrington – who is basically the Longhorns' version of Mark Pantoni – Texas received a silent commitment over the weekend while Robinson was in town. There was a bit of worry at first, but it's become abundantly clear that the news was related to a different prospect. Texas (and USC) are very much in the hunt, but there have been plenty of positive vibes coming out of Atlanta and the Rivals' Five-Star Challenge. Several "FutureCast" picks came in on Monday – the same day the players arrived – and all of them were in Ohio State's favor. Tony Alford and Ryan Day now just have to wait for a decision, but Jack Miller and the rest of the 2020 commits seem to be putting in plenty of work down in Atlanta. Interestingly enough, both Stan Drayton and Tim Beck are also very much involved here. Drayton as the position coach with Beck serving as the lead recruiter. The much-maligned former Ohio State assistant won a state title as a high school head coach in Scottsdale in the mid-90's. So, there are technically three familiar foes in this particular recruitment. Lathan Ransom's recruitment is also nearing its end, and the Buckeyes reportedly knocked it out of the park during last weekend's official trip to Columbus. Lejond Cavazos is doing everything in his power to help land yet another talented player in the secondary. And if the recent crystal ball trend is any indication, he and Jeff Hafley may have locked up the country's No. 4 safety.  Ransom could be a big first piece of what's expected to be a two-man class at safety. He was in Columbus back in February for a bit of an abbreviated visit, but he got the full taste when in town over the weekend. He's likely Ohio State's top safety target at the moment and has finished up all five official visits. Texas, Notre Dame, LSU, and Oklahoma were the other recipients.  Is the recruitment of the Salpointe Catholic teammates a package deal? Absolutely not and the notion that any prospect is a part of some sort of package is usually overhyped to begin with. But did Ohio State's homerun visits with both Robinson and Ransom position them to land two of the top remaining 2020 targets? Things are definitely looking promising.  There's no decision timeline in place for either one, and while they could wait until their senior seasons to decide, it's looking as though both will announce sometime this summer; perhaps sooner rather than later.  Texas remains a very real factor in both recruitments. Austin is obviously closer to home and both have been on campus multiple times. Are the Longhorns viewed as a viable national title contender in today's college football world? Not at this point, but you really never know if that's even a factor for any particular player.  Ryan Day, Tony Alford, and Jeff Hafley have the Buckeyes in line to possibly land both players before the end of the summer. As far as the timing, it's looking like the sooner the better in both instances as it sure seems like Herman and the Horns have some ground to make up.  The recruitments of Bijan Robinson and Lathan Ransom are two of the hottest ones to watch over the coming weeks as Ohio State looks for some good news during the dead period   https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football-recruiting/2019/06/104961/two-of-ohio-states-top-remaining-recruiting-battles-set-to-feature-a-ryan-day-vs-tom-herman-showdown
    • It’s definitely an idea that has been in his head elsewhere. But it’s something the Texas staff should have been prepared for given this isn’t he first time we’ve heard that line. 
    • This talk of Broughton and wanting to play in a 4-3/aggy scheme smells fishy.  He's been a Texas lean the whole time and now all of the sudden the scheme is the deal breaker when he's known the entire time?  He'll just get moved inside like Brown and eventually Leal after he balloons up to 330+ lbs. like Brown did in the aggy s&c program.
