    2021 Recruiting Board/Thread

    Had a little poker game at the farm last sat. (took a little money from a rich SOB that acted like he lost his last dollar). Anyway, a couple of the boys had some interesting news about the new coaches. They're excited about them. Says they take no shit and allow no shit from the players. And they are COACHING! And they will tell Herman when he is wrong nd when to shut the F up and let them handle it.

    Media-driven. I'm going to continue my day to day just as I always have. Simple hygiene as we're supposed to do anyway goes far against catching anything. Frankly, I'm more worried about catching the flu.

    Many NCAA schools are doing the same. Conference hoops tourneys will be sparsely attended, if the conference even decides to host them at all. Also UT has announced a 2-week spring break for students. Bourbon stockpile: check One-wipe Charlie’s stash-check Briskets/Robs/Pork Shoulders in freezer-check Wood for smoking-check Ranch Style Beans-check Tortillas-check LHN-check I’m set.

    I’m not typically one who panics, but I’m starting to think an adequate stockpile of food, booze and shotgun shells might not be a bad idea.

    Rick Barnes

    Barnes never had a problem wearing the burnt orange ties that I know of. I know sometimes he didn't wear school colors, but not often. I wouldn't be upset with his statement about UCLA. Everybody has to cover their bases with contingency plans and whatnot. I think Barnes has had success at your UT so I'd think you'd want to keep him. IMO, Barnes would be miserable in California. In Knoxville, he's at least close to home (Hickory NC). I'm sure that area of Tennessee reminds him of home anyway. For the record, we'd take him back in a heartbeat compared to who we have now. lol

    Rick Barnes

    New member here. I had to check my Tennessee pride at the door when registering when the system asked, to avoid spam accounts, "What city is UT in?" I figured answering Knoxville would not work here! Anyhow, some folks on radio today are upset that Rick Barnes does not like to wear our Tennessee orange. His neckties are usually more of the burnt orange variety than our Tennessee orange. And he showed up at the state tourney over the weekend completely devoid of any orange (of any shade) or Tennessee logos. I was wondering, was he the same way at Texas? It doesn't help things that he said he would have left for UCLA if we had let him out of the contract after last season. Just for the record, I have always admired Texas. I have never visited Austin. My Dad did one time and said he didn't want to leave. A home and home with Texas seems like a natural. Hopefully, we'll see that soon.

    Longhorn News/Discussion (Non-recruiting)

    Hello, all. I finally have time to catch up! We have been on Spring Break, yeah! Took the Grandsons to the UT Basketball game last Saturday. The oldest one was so disappointed that we lost. He loves competition, and does not relish losing, but we made the best of it. Yes, I am big on T'Vondre. He is a great young man, and he knows his mind. I respect that, and respect him. He doesn't complain about the work required to become the best you can be. He just does what needs to be done. I believe that the lack of a work ethic is what holds so many athletes back, rather than coaches, or facilities, or dining halls. Everyone knew he would play in college, and most of the people I work with expected him to go to A&M. Then Texas started recruiting him. It was obvious that he really liked Texas, and then he was finally able to visit. When he got back, he told me that he loved his visit and was very comfortable in Austin. He was really happy the day he committed to Texas. There was no doubt, no tension, just excitement. He was completely comfortable with his decision. From that point on, he was all Longhorn. He occasionally made trips to Austin. He took a friend with him to the OU game. Our coaches stayed in touch with him from the time they began recruiting him until he left to go to Austin in June. It was a seamless transition, high school team to college team, one coaching staff to another. An important part of a high school team to a valued part of a college team. It was a joy to watch. Yes, I'm a fan of his. Hook 'em!

    Wasn't Sweat the one who Java was so high on when we signed him. If I remember right, he was only a 3* at the time, but she saw greatness in him. Herman should hire her as a recruiting analyst. Having Whittington, Smith and Eagles on the field at the same time should be a defensive nightmare. "Oh football, how I love thee. Let me count the days..." 176 days.

    A follow up - less many adult beverages and UT camaraderie. The sober evaluation (without hyperbole)was that Herman is not trying to run roughshod over the coaches and when they say let them handle it, he is respecting their wishes. None of them are "yes men" for sure. Also, it should be noted that CDC was invested in the vetting of each and every one of them. That is important, IMO.

    Barnes could still coach. Smart still can’t. His guys are just getting hot and getting shots to fall. When they go cold again he’ll be exposed again. His teams live and die by the jump shot.

    Call me crazy. Two weeks ago I wanted Shaka fired. He kept putting a team on the court that was a team in name only. Sure they played hard all his teams have but they lacked a spark. Everybody wanted the ball on offense and there’s only one. So you have some injuries to your big names at the bigs and you put in some guys with a fire for the game. They don’t care if they score; they just pick up the trash, play defense and... hustle. And presto a recipe, an identity. If Shaka has learned that his best team isn’t always , or even most of the time, just the 5 most talented players, but the 5 players who together play the game the best, then I’d be happy to have him back. He seems like a great guy and a good ambassador for the school. But I do want a good basketball team.

    Yes, Texas only had 2 FTs and they came with about 1:38 left in the game when an ou player laying on the court intentionally grab Ramsey's leg and it took a replay to call the technical. Texas took 2 FTs, made 2 and ou took 29 FTs and made 21. Sorry but that has to be looked at by the league. Several times Texas players took shots and landed on the floor with no whistle blown. Rant over. ou thought they had the game and their toothless fans were chanting "Texas Sucks" and then Coleman banks in that 3 with .4 seconds left. Frigging Priceless!

    Denton County has now issued a Shelter in Place order, effective at midnight. We have seen a rise in the number of cases here, now at over 30 I believe. However, some of that can be attributed to more people being tested. After looking over the order as well as the National Landscape Association's statement on this, it appears that my company is an essential service and will not have to cease operations. This is good news as long as people in my company remain uninfected. So far, so good. My wife and I have been ordering out almost every night. A lot of restaurants have had to close their dining rooms but are still offering carry out. They need our help to stay afloat.

    PD, thats a political opinion from a liberal site. At the least, its ill advised to copy them and attempt to politicize a virus. What the story doesn't try to say is the US has a higher standard of healthcare available than any nation in the world. Why would we buy WHO tests when we have always created our own? When a new virus comes on the scene, the host country of origin will send out the code for the new virus. From that, other countries across the world are able to generate their own tests and also begin developing a medicinal remedy. Whoever gets there first, shares the remedy with the rest of the world.

    The coronavirus virus is not media driven. Some of the facts that have come is that 80% of the public will have mild symptoms. However if your over 60 or older than the risk goes up including death. The Seattle nursing home had one third of the residents die since they were older and had other health issues. The unfortunate part is that the US is behind other countries as far as testing and that's one of the key ways of containing the virus which is hard to do because it's so contagious. Also, with our lack of testing we could have a cluster of cases for the hospitals which they many not be able to handle which is going on in Italy which means some could die because of the lack of medical care. If your 60 or older and especially if you have some other health issue I would recommend you build up your immune system as much as you can to fight it off. When people do get the virus the body goes into over drive of inflammation. If your healthy then you can fight it off. However if your immune system is compromise or your older then the inflammation response is too much to fight and your lungs are affected which could lead to difficulty in breathing and which could lead to death. Some of the things that you can do to fight the virus is to make sure your Vitamin D3 levels are not low. Vitamin D is very important for the immune system and respiratory system. Also to build up the immune system or if you get the virus then high levels of vitamin C every hour will help fight the virus and the inflammation. Right now I'm taking 15 grams a day. Studies have shown that when you get a cold or the flu your need for Vitamin C goes up. Oregano oil is another virus fighter and anti inflammation. Good luck to and I hope everyone can ride this out in good health.

    Agree. Cunningham and Hamm were the stars for me, especially there late in the game. Hamm has really come a long way. This is a great win for Shaka and the team. Lots of injured players, playing with a short bench – rose to the occasion against a good Tech team. Bravo

    Cunningham and Hamm played lights out, hope the injured guys were taking notes on the bench. Smart did outcoach Beard yesterday. I also have liked the technical he has received the past couple of games, it shows the players he has their back. For a team most, including yours truly, wrote off as dead, it's good to see the Horns playing with passion and pride.

    If you want to see winning mentality, go back and watch Big 12 Tourney when Horns came from the Loser’s bracket to win the Championship! I was there, when Huston ran onto the field the Horns were tired, the fans were tired, but you could feel the momentum shift. Huston knew we would win it, the fans gave him a standing O, and the team had all the energy they needed. I will never forget it. It’s an invaluable lesson that sports teaches Hook ‘em!
