    Totally disagree. A scholarship is valuable enough. Wait until the rosters are impossible for fans to form relationships with. Fans will stay away. Just ask the millions who have stopped watching the nfl. As a matter of fact what you are suggesting is collegiate sports socialism.

    Wow! OU has given up 49 points at halftime. We gave up 45 for the whole game. This could be a possible OU humiliation.

    If UT played in Cedar Park's HS stadium, would people care as much? If UT didn't spend millions promoting itself, would anybody think of UT the same? I could go on and on but the point is – the stage that these kids get to star on is paid for by the institution (and people of Texas). All of this is made possible by UT and the people of Texas. Secondly, hornsup is right on paper but wrong in application. Sure, we'd all love to think this is fair. But would it be beneficial to a young man at that point in his career anyway? When I was that age, I had a friend whose father passed. He inherited a bunch of money. He went out on a spending spree, got into drugs, and today lives on the street. So it's not as simple as paying a kid for fair treatment. We're making the wrong move here and college football as we know it will be gone. An education at UT isn't worth just what the price tag says when you pay tuition. A UT education will pay dividends the rest of your life. How do you put a price tag on that?

    The transfer portal is the worst thing to happen to college football in my lifetime, and that's a long time. It will only get worse when they legalize paying these kids.

    this video gets me excited, he was already successful with Gundy but he’s been in Columbus just soaking up all that knowledge to put on top of what he already knew. If things go right, this could be a program changing hire. This is so so so good for Texas. Like if he’s as good as we think he will be he will only be around for a couple of seasons, he’s at Texas to be a head coach somewhere.

    and whatever SI and ESPN say about their "all time" lists....many a pro said they would rather play against Butkis every week than have to face Nobis once a season.

    1. Why would you throw money at a kid because a lot of people in Texas come to see the Horns play? People here love football. 2. UT doesn't need help with enrollment. They turn more people away each year than any other school in the state. Those enrollment numbers also discourage people from coming to UT. See Marcus Burris, Pleasant Grove. 3. I think you're on the right path with the trust idea. At least until they exit school. 4. They would put their bodies on the line at Angelo State. But I promise you, nobody at Angelo is going to get a check from their use of likeness. Texas sets the stage. 5. What you call sacrifice others call "the path to the NFL" where they will get millions. Again, Texas has that stage to do that. 6. Perhaps part of their education will get paid for by their earnings? Oh wait, that already happens.

    Big 12 in Bowls

    6 teams in bowls. OSU lost last night. ISU getting hammered by ND right now. KSt in my opinion is the most likely team to win (NAVY). Will the Big 12 go 0 out of 6? I predict it will. Quite a letdown from last year. I will be delighted to see ou get hammered. I will gladly eat crow if I'm wrong on the Horns. Just looks like the B12 isn't matching up well this bowl go round. Just my 2 cents....... P.S. I never win when I go to Vegas or Laughlin.

    You have to remember, Dillo, the SEC gets to pick which of their teams go where. We don't have that luxury. We go where we're told. So we often get matched with superior teams.

    Just a thought...Lincoln Riley went to OU from East Carolina. I can only imagine how the gurus on all of the paid boards (and even here) if TH hired some one from a small school without all of the glitz and glory from a big school. I'm still amused at crowd at OB (when I was a member there) snickered and jeered when Dabo Swinney offered to bring his whole staff with him to Texas. Meanwhile Texas hired Charlie Strong.

    That was Chris Ash that Meyer was talking about. The guy at Bucknuts said that Yurcich is not a grinder as a recruiter. In that case I can recommend a new TE coach...Tim Brewster. He can help take care of the recruiting. Herman worked with Brewster before at UT. He would have to steal him from Mack and that would be a comfort hire that I would like.

    THE ALL-TIME ALL-AMERICA TEAM FOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL'S 150TH ANNIVERSARY LB Tommy Nobis, Texas (1963-65) Interceptions: 7 After watching Nobis suffocate Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Roger Staubach in a 28-6 victory over Navy in the 1964 Cotton Bowl, Army coach Paul Dietzel called Nobis "the finest linebacker I've ever seen in college." Nobis was the only sophomore starter on Texas' 1963 national championship team -- and he still played both ways, at linebacker and guard, after the rules were changed to allow two-platoon football. As a junior, Nobis made one of the most famous tackles in Orange Bowl history, stopping Alabama's Joe Namath at the goal line on fourth-and-inches to preserve UT's 21-17 decision. Nobis was a two-time All-American in 1964 and '65, averaged nearly 20 tackles per game, and won the Outland Trophy and Maxwell Award as a senior. P Russell Erxleben, Texas (1975-78) NCAA leader: 1976 (46.6-yard average) | Career: 45.1 average Erxleben excelled as punter and place-kicker for the Longhorns. He set an NCAA record with a 67-yard field goal in his junior year. That record comes with an asterisk -- in Erxleben's day, NCAA rules allowed kickers to use a tee. There are no asterisks in his punting career. The three-time All-American beat by a half-yard the career average of first-team punter Ray Guy, and for years, few others approached them. One other thing: Erxleben averaged 4.5 punts per game. In the days of Earl Campbell, the Horns didn't punt very often. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/28356861/the-all-all-america-team-college-football-150th-anniversary

    Not sure if he was responsible for the recruiting part but Ok State always seems to be able to find and develop very skilled receivers and RBs. Whether he is a world class recruiter or not, success on the field and players being recognized nationally will attract more quality players. Especially at a place like Texas.

    Yes finally Brett McMurphy‏Verified account @Brett_McMurphy 31m31 minutes ago More Ohio State passing game coordinator Mike Yurcich, the top candidate for Texas OC job, expected to be named Horns’ OC next week, sources told @Stadium. At Thursday’s @Fiesta_Bowl availability, Yurcich wouldn’t comment on Texas & told me his “focus is 100 percent on Clemson.”

    I am getting a little tired of the fact that EVERY year we are hearing about how young a team we are.It is like we havnt had a senior for 7 years.I realize that we have few upper classmen playing, but damn....somewhere down the line that has to be on us...

    Well I'm hoping that it is a good game and Texas wins. I know Utah has a good record, but Texas may be healed up for a change and very well could win the game. I do think it was time to change the offensive and defensive coaches. My thoughts on Coach Herman is to let him stay for a long time. He is a good coach, I know many people want a coach fired anytime we do not win. Lots of injuries this year and very young players.

    Buffalo Trace is my go to for the most part, I'm a fan of most of the bourbons that come out of the Buffalo Trace distillery. I've also started mixing in Old Forester on occasion as an any occasion bourbon. The bourbon's that I have right now that are reserved for me and any other bourbon snob who visits are E.H. Taylor and Old Forester 1920. I'd love to have a bottle of Stagg, Eagle Rare 17 year or Pappy's in the collection but a) they're out of my bourbon budget right now and b) they're not the easiest to find. I have a buddy who's wife bought him a bottle of Pappy's 15-year as an anniversary present...she called all over the country and finally found one at a liquor store across the street from Wall Street. He's pretty good gift giver and I'm positive that he thought that his gift for her was going to top anything she got him...I wish I'd seen his face. It's very good stuff...best bourbon I've tasted. If you're looking for a good old fashioned recipe try this one...Julian Van Winkle's Old Fashioned Cocktail
