I did what I said I would never do

Recommended Posts

I joined Orange Bloods.  The only reason I did it was because this cat Suchomel has been referred and quoted by so many sites.  Including this one.  I figured, what the hell, I'll join for one month and see what goes on.

The first day I joined I was called a liar, aggy and disingenuous.  That's because, for some reason, my profile said I was a member since 2004.  Don't ask me, I had to e-mail them to find out why.  Still waiting on an answer.  This should give you an idea of what OB is all about.  Be warned.

To continue, this Suchomel cat intimated we weren't going to get  Robinson, Broughton, Washington, Eaton or Cooper.

That's disconcerting. 

But I claim BS.  Trust the Doc on this.

What’s your handle Doc?  I’ll vouch for you. But understand a couple of things; there are a plethora of dbags on most large sites and as a noob you’ll be questioned. 

Also, recruiting “scoops” “news” etc are all guesses. 18 yr old boys are more fickle than most girls. 

Good luck

I left OB a few years ago when Ketch wouldn't refund my subscription after viewing the free trial.  I'd been a member before and left, but figured I'd give them another chance with the free trial.  Turns out the free trial automatically charged my credit card since I was a prior member.  I explained it to Ketch and he could care less.

They have treated some former mods who left for other sites poorly as well.  Ketch is pretty thin skinned and brings on a lot of heat to himself and is rumored to have several sock accounts on the site as well.

Just not my kind of site to say the least and am glad I left.

Of his list, I'd say Eaton and Cooper are headed elsewhere. The other three are very much in play for us.

Just remember Doc, this is self-inflicted. In piss fights, everybody gets pissed on.

Lol!  I know about the dbags.  I'm a veteran of the internet.  But OB seems to be overrun with them.  I announced that I had just joined the day before and one moron jumped right on me and said your profile said you joined in 2004 (?) so not only are you a liar, but you are disingenuous and sound like an aggy and a troll.  Crack out of the bag. My feelings were so hurt. Ha, ha!

 

As far as recruiting, understand that OOS prospects are never as sold on UT as we are.  They know about us, sure, but they are more familiar with the winners.  We haven't been in that category for years.  so that is a hurdle to overcome.  Right now we have 7 commits whereas Clemson, Bama, Georgia have been sweeping up blue chips like leaves.  That alone should tell you something.

Was never an OB member. I left Hornfans after several years and came here. HF had an "elite" group of members who could say anthing that came into their minds. Other members not so much. Ridicule became tiresome and thankfully I found Hornsports. 

Ditto

I was there for a few years. Got to know a few really good guys like @joeywa and @armadillo slim and @streettopeschel @TEXPIMP and sportzcaster and whatever Trace’s username was. Stayed mostly cause McComas is the best Texas Baseball guy (outside of Joeywa of course) on the interwebz and the community was always good to me. Left cause Ketchum ramped up the OBnoxious (see what I did there). But have been thinking of going back cause I miss some of the mind bottling banter.

As long as Buddha is associated with it, I won't go back.

Not to accidentally spiritually summon a former Hornsports member, but is this our former “esteemed colleague” and Dubai enthusiast from years ago?

I like it... Have made some life long friends there. I also like Inside Texas. I am still on 247 but it is my least favorite.

Tracy was “not Texas good” on “Renegades”. But I think he had the same handle on OB.

I do miss Slim. Wish he would come back on here.

Trace, not tracy. . .just FYI.    Good dude. . .AMAZING memory.

 

I need to email/text him.

 

OB appears to be getting lapped on the "sports/recruiting" side. . . 

 

They are great because of the community that has built up over there and despite my issues with management and their chicken shit antics, I'll never leave.

 

Though I do think I am the only official Hall of Fame member of the board who still posts beyond CS

    • No Jones returns when they expect a possible fake or know it’ll be a fair catch. So all punts from around midfield or 4th and short. He can better break up a possible fake. Jake Smith is returning when they think they will have a return. 
    • Bill Haisten: Mike Gundy savors a sign of defensive progress as Longhorns loom   Last week, Joel Klatt designated Oklahoma State as the No. 1 sleeper team in college football. “(The Cowboys aren’t) even ranked yet,” the Fox Sports television analyst tweeted, “but they will be soon.”   During the first period of Saturday’s Oklahoma State-Tulsa game at Chapman Stadium, the Cowboys looked like an underrated dynamo. In bolting to a 17-0 lead, they averaged 8 yards per play. After the hot start, however, OSU wasn’t a sleeper. OSU was sleepy. During the entirety of the second period and some of the third, OSU was outplayed by the Golden Hurricane. The Cowboys trailed 21-20 at halftime with plenty of bad to go around. There had been shoddy tackling. There had been a terrible play-call (a 2-yard pass in a third-and-5 situation). There had been a spectacularly conspicuous failure in coverage — a mistake that resulted in a wide-open Keylon Stokes collecting a 39-yard TD pass from TU quarterback Zach Smith. Neither of OSU’s safeties was within 10 yards of Stokes. OSU fans and Mike Gundy recognized an unsettling, obvious truth: the Cowboys’ poor second quarter bore a striking resemblance to OSU’s sorry 2018 performances at Kansas State and Baylor. The road favorite each time — and in spite of talent advantages — OSU lost in both of those games. The Oklahoma State of Saturday’s second period would have no chance of beating Texas in next week’s Big 12 opener at Austin. Texas would truck the second-quarter Cowboys. However, the Oklahoma State of the second half has a chance to win in Austin — for the sixth consecutive time. After spending 20 halftime minutes in the sweatbox that qualifies as a visitors’ locker room, the Cowboys returned with substantially better defense against TU. During the second half of a 40-21 Cowboy victory, Tulsa was scoreless. Hurricane QBs Smith and Seth Boomer were 10-of-22 passing. The Golden Hurricane run game amounted to 32 yards on 21 attempts.       TOP ARTICLES1/5READ MOREOSU visits TU, OU travels to UCLA:Find all our college coverage here     Before halftime, TU averaged 5.7 yards per snap. After halftime: 3.2. Gundy praised playmakers Chuba Hubbard, Tylan Wallace and Spencer Sanders after the game, but OSU’s coach seemed most pleased with his defensive coaches. With 10 minutes left to play and TU trailing by 12 points, Philip Montgomery left his offense on the field for a fourth-and-5 gamble from the OSU 6-yard line. Gundy himself called for a safety blitz. Kolby Harvell-Peel bolted into the backfield for a 9-yard sack of Smith. “That was a really, really good job by our (defensive staff) — making adjustments at halftime, and then our players taking the information from the locker room to the field to shut (TU) down,” said Gundy, who as an OSU quarterback, assistant and head coach is 10-4 against the Golden Hurricane.   “And, obviously,” Gundy added, “we rushed the ball pretty well.” Oklahoma State rushed for 337 yards. Hubbard, who solidified his status as an elite tailback, carried 32 times for 256 yards and three TDs. In his past seven games, Hubbard has run for 947 yards and 12 TDs. If that 135-yard average were sustained over a 13-game season, it would result in 1,755 yards. In Oklahoma State football history, only Barry Sanders, Terry Miller, Ernest Anderson and Thurman Thomas have gotten single-season rushing totals of at least 1,755 yards. With gold-medal track speed and amazing balance, Hubbard is off to a 521-yard, three-game start this season. He and Wallace give Oklahoma State a chance to compete in every game, but to actually contend in the Big 12, OSU consistently needs the type of defense it executed during Saturday’s second half. Last year, OSU was dogged by stupid penalties. Against TU, while trailing on the road and in need of something positive with three minutes left in the third period, the Cowboys got a third-down stop — and then got flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. TU was given a fresh set of downs near midfield. If the bad penalties are eliminated and if the Hubbard-Wallace big plays are bundled with the sort of defense seen during Saturday’s second half, OSU would be positioned to steal another road win in Austin. Also, Klatt would gain some traction with his contention Oklahoma State is a national “sleeper” to watch.   https://www.tulsaworld.com/sports/college/osu/bill-haisten-mike-gundy-savors-a-sign-of-defensive-progress/article_a9933b65-8592-56c0-bcf9-6ed312b792c6.html
    • Commitment 101: Three-star running back Ty Jordan is a versatile weapon Posted September 15th, 2019 Mike Craven Hookem.com staff  mcraven@hookem.com Advertisement The Longhorns added an all-purpose back to the 2020 recruiting class on Sunday night when three-star West Mesquite product Ty Jordan became Texas’ 19th commitment of the cycle. Tom Herman’s program is inching towards another top-10 class after a slow start. The Longhorns currently hold the Big 12’s top recruiting class. Jordan held 25 offers and picked Texas over strong pitches from USC and Tennessee.    427 people are talking about this         Texas plans to couple Jordan with five-star running back commit Bijan Robinson. While Robinson is a three-down option with the size to carry a heavy workload, Jordan is a scat-back with the potential to play running back, slot receiver, and in the return game. Jordan is a two-time all-district selection.  Jordan rushed for 1,236 yards and 16 touchdowns last season, adding 169 yards and two touchdowns on 14 receptions. He’s the No. 11-ranked all-purpose back in the nation and a top-60 prospect in Texas, per 247Sports composite rankings.  Skill set: Jordan is a modern offensive weapon not defined by position. He’ll play all over the field for Texas. Jordan is a potential third-down specialist at running back with the ability to play slot receiver, threaten defenses on jet-sweeps, and contribute in the return game on special teams. The three-star considers his versatility the strength of his game.  “The one-dimensional back that just runs isn’t valued anymore,” said Jordan at the Under Armour camp in Dallas during the spring. “Coaches want backs who are dynamic and are three-dimensional with running, blocking and receiving. It’s a mismatch for a defense. I can go out in the slot and we don’t need to change personnel and that’s an advantage against defenses.” He’s not big enough to handle every-down running back duties at 5-9, 181 pounds, but he doesn’t need to be in order to fulfill his future role in Austin. Jordan is the type of playmaker Texas missed out on in Mookie Cooper and Ronald Moore. The Longhorns hope he can bring that type of excitement to the offense. He’s the type of player who can create big plays for an offense that lacked those in 2018.  Immediate impact: Jordan should provide Texas an immediate option on special teams and are certain offensive packages. Don’t expect him to enroll on campus and compete for a spot in the two-deep with the likes of Keaontay Ingram, Jordan Whittington, and potentially Derrian Brown. That’s not mentioning Robinson arriving in the same class. That doesn’t mean he can’t carve out a role with a limited number of plays, especially with the new rule allowing participation in four games without losing eligibility.  Fitting into the program: The next step for Texas’ offense is the big play. The Longhorns hope to address that issue on the recruiting trail and Jordan is another swiss-army knife type weapon for Herman and offensive coordinator Tim Beck to slowly work into Texas’ offense. Jordan’s work ethic and a love for the game should translate well into Herman’s blue-collar program.  Recruiting at the position: Texas’ coaching staff, specifically running back coach Stan Drayton, needed a big year recruiting the position in the 2020 cycle. Drayton overachieved by landing Robinson and Jordan, a duo built for Texas’ future offensive plans. The Longhorns couldn’t have done better considering in-state five-stars Jase McClellan and Zachary Evans didn’t join the class. Instead of fans talking about the in-state misses, the duo of Robinson and Jordan give Texas building blocks for the future.  Texas' 2020 recruiting class A list of Texas commitments in the 2020 recruiting class.
