    Every coach in their district ruled in favor of the kids to play. Doesn't seem very shady to me. This stuff literally happens all the time. I also said in a previous thread when the WR aggy commit for Tomball was ruled ineligible, the UIL constantly rules players eligible or ineligible all the time. The only time yall hear about it is with a high profile recruit (like wr for aggy) or some other reason (briles). Nothing to see here except click bait, and I'm not a briles supporter.

    If true, the town of Mt Vernon should be proud. What did they really expect? https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb/art-briles-is-already-being-accused-of-cheating-at-texas-high-school-because-of-course-he-is/ar-AAHua3j?ocid=spartanntp

    Briles is scum. Has been since Stephenville. I’m a level 1 source on that. That writer is a jerk off. His last paragraph is proof of that. Did I mention Art is scum.

    I'm going to go ahead and call your bluff . . or your inability to put stats into perspective. Its true Texas is 112th in the country right now. Right now. The defense you're so critical of has faced what may be the two best offenses in the country. Not many teams ranked higher have done that. So yeah, thats going to ruin your statistics a little bit. What kind of kills that statistic (giving up yards) is that defense is also ranked 4th in the country right now in INTs. Holding OU to their lowest scoring game this far into the year isn't anything to snub your nose at, especially given the injuries and youth we're dealing with. Yeah, we've got issues with tackling. We didn't have that in game 1 or 2. So its correctable and probably due in some part to some starters not playing. Go get that baby you threw out with the bath water.

    My notes . . . – Defensively, it wasn't as ugly as it looked. Holding OU's offense to 34 isn't bad at all. – We are a very young defense playing in a big game. Despite that, it didn't get into their heads. – We missed Caden Sterns today. – Offense started so many times deep in our own territory, its hard to believe we still scored 27 points. – Colin Johnson didn't have a bad game, but you could tell he's been out a while. – My ire goes to the Texas offensive line. What was supposed to be a position of strength was burned for what, 9 sacks? – I do believe Coach O was out-coached today. However, I don't view this as proving one DC is better than the other. Coach O played the hand he was dealt. Remember, he was a hero just last year in Dallas. – Kenneth Murray is a beast of a LB. We need to game plan him in the CCG. – The one thing I would hate to be in life is a Oklahoma QB recruit. You will never start. It must be nice to move in a seasoned starter every year. – Roschon Johnson was a big bright spot for us yesterday. Makes you wonder if someone thing is wrong with Ingram. Will Johnson threaten Ingram's starting job?

    The coaches know who might be leaving or who might be unable to play. Six RBS is about right for depth. However one might be unable to play again and one might go back to WR. If so another RB would be needed. If more players are commited I hope for a couple of LBS IMO the weakest position on the team for depth.

    It’s Texas - OU Week

    We lost to the number 5 team in the nation by 7 and anyone who knows even a little about football knows that we were in that game until the end and, if we'd made a couple of plays could have finished the night with the W. We had a dropped pass in the end zone and couple of questionable calls in the red zone that should've put points on the board but LSU's D did a great job of stopping us on 4th down and keeping us from scoring. The whole country saw a damn good game between two very good teams, if you saw something different you might want to use a little more aluminum foil on your television's antenna.

    You may be correct with everything you said, however defending a 112th rating is playing a losing hand.

    I don't know if you guys are familiar with SP+. It's basically a model to rank teams' offense/defense/special teams, and it tries to normalize performance based on opponents played and a bunch of other metrics. I have my own complaints about SP+, and I certainly wouldn't read too much into the exact rankings, but in case anyone is curious here's how the Texas defense has been ranked in the past several years: 2019: 67th 2018: 44th 2017: 14th 2016: 50th 2015: 60th 2014: 12th 2013: 23rd 2012: 43rd So, SP+ indicates that our defense is about as good as it was in 2015-2016. Todd Orlando seems to be following the same trajectory (in terms of SP+ rankings) as Vance Bedford.

    If it stays there, I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't cover. KU is improving and played OU tough. Hopefully, we don't have an OU hangover.

    The Texas defense is currently statistically the worst in school history... That is hard to do considering the Strong era and what Manny Diaz did. We're also leading the country is missed tackles... The defense is a complete shit show...

    Offense is the name of the game today. Unless you can score around 50 points a gamme you will not win enough game to be in playoffs. Most good high schools score 50 points in a 12 minute shorter game. Hopefully Herman will see the light if not he will go the same as Brown.

    Texas better be able to run the ball and control the line of scrimmage to help give the defense a rest. Hope our defense can put pressure on Hurts and not let him kill us by running. Texas 35 OU 27.

    Okay boys . . . .

    I think I was the ONLY one on the board picking a Texas victory today. I believe I said 27-21 or 28-21. Either way, just form a line and take your turn giving it up! . . lol

    Briles Accused of Cheating Already

    The article is VERY misleading. I'm not defending Briles, but the students in question transferred in before he coached there. He was actually coaching in Italy at the time of the transfer...

    I'm not a fan of Art Briles, but the article is more of hear-say and no substance. The article even took a shot at Texas high school football and education system. That shot paints all high school coaches like that of Art Briles. That is wrong and very misleading.

Authorities reached a guilty verdict after discovering that despite wearing uniforms in public, displaying military medals, and being big time hardos, less than half of cadets go on to serve in the military. “The fact that these kids and this institution have let this go on for over a century is unconscionable,” says lead investigator Winston Hughes. “While it does not appear any of the cadets were able to translate their fake military status into getting laid, the vast majority did attempt to get free apps at the local Chili’s every Veterans’ Day.” Stolen Valor is typically defined as an individual wearing a military uniform and impersonating a member of the armed forces despite never having served. Texas A&M released a statement clarifying that, while the majority of their Cadets don’t commission into the armed forces, some do and all of them take their “dress up and march around stuff” very seriously. The school also stressed the importance of imagination in developing young minds. “Whether that involves imagining you go to Hogwarts or imagining you attend a military academy, the principle remains the same,” Booster Club President Jimbob Joe Houston notes. Houston was also quick to point out the school’s status as a Senior Military College, a special designation granted to several institutions after the Civil War authorizing their students to wear fancy boots and get high and tight haircuts unironically. However, detractors point out, that authorization is for individuals who are actually going to join the military and does not cover those who are live-action role-playing as soldiers from the Spanish-American War. The nail in the coffin for A&M’s stolen valor case was the fact that unlike other Senior Military Colleges—such as the Citadel or the Virginia Military Institute—it’s possible to be a student at the school without being a fake ROTC weirdo. “Over 69,000 students will attend class this year in College Station while only about 2,500 will dress up and ask people to thank them for their service” Hughes notes. When reached for comment, member of the Corps Josh Taylor was unapologetic. “How am I stealing valor by just wearing a uniform? Like I owe some kind of service to the country?” Taylor says. “I bought these boots with my parents’ own money, and donated my time to appearing on ESPN football broadcasts all fall. The nation has been compensated.” “If anything, you could say I’m overcompensating”

    My father in law blocked for Earl in every game Earl wore an Oilers uniform. Everybody loved Bum. I doubt he'd say Bum ruined Earl. Those were the times when football was still a hard-nosed game with much less money at stake. Earl was doing what he wanted to do and Bum obliged. I don't think Earl regrets how he played the game so this question isn't really fair. Today's game and standards are different so I don't think they can be compared.
