    FOOTBALL Commitment 101: Texas flips four-star wide receiver Troy Omeire from Texas A&M Advertisement Texas fans received a gift Friday morning when four-star wide receiver Troy Omeire flipped his pledge from Texas A&M to the Longhorns. It continues a trend of Tom Herman running circles around Jimbo Fisher in the 2020 recruiting class. Texas’ class now consists of 20 members and ranks fifth in the nation. Jimbo Fisher’s class now ranks 16th with 16 commitments. Herman proved the turtle can win the recruiting race. Omeire is a 6-3.5, 210-pound product of Fort Bend Austin. He ranked 16th on the 2020 Fabulous 55. The two-time first-team all-district selection is the 32nd-ranked wide receiver in the nation, per 247Sports composite rankings. Omeire is the second wide receiver commitment in the 2020 class, joining Temple’s Quentin Johnston. Omeire originally picked Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M on June 8. Skill set: Omeire is an athletic freak of nature. He’s still raw as a football player and wide receiver, but the physical tools are there for him to become a star in college football. Omeire already looks like a college wide receiver with plenty of bulk to handle duties outside of catching the football like blocking on the edge. Omeire achieves success on pure athleticism and instinct. The sky’s the limit for the big wide receiver once he receives some real tutelage as the position. The big-bodied wide receiver recorded 85 catches for 1,546 yards and 21 touchdowns in his past two varsity seasons. Immediate impact: It’s not easy for wide receivers to make an immediate impact as a true freshman, especially at one of the outside receiver positions. Even Collin Johnson struggled to see the field and find consistency early in his tenure. We watched guys like Brennan Eagles and Malcolm Epps used sparingly as true freshman despite high recruiting rankings. Omeire is likely to follow the same path as Eagles. Expect Omeire to see the field as a true freshman before making a bigger impact as he reaches his second year on campus. Fitting into the program: It’s no secret that Tom Herman and his coaching staff own the Houston recruiting streets. That wasn’t as true in Fort Bend County, long-time Aggie country south of Houston. Omeire’s flip is a big success for Texas in many ways. One, Omeire is a fantastic player and the type of wide receiver the Longhorns love.Two, he’s a true recruiting victory over Texas A&M in Fort Bend County, home to numerous FBS athletes on a yearly basis. Recruiting at the position: Texas didn’t need more than two wide receivers in the 2020 class and that’s exactly where the Longhorns sit after Omeire’s flip from Texas A&M. Omeire and Johnston give Texas two four-star talents with long, athletic frames. If Texas does push for a third wide receiver in the class, California product LV Bunkley-Shelton and Rockwall’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba appear to be the ones left on the radar. https://www.hookem.com/story/commitment-101-texas-flips-four-star-wide-receiver-troy-omeire-texas/

    This is a game that Todd Orlando needs to show that he's one of the top defensive coordinators in college football. Hopefully, the LSU game had more to do with the LSU offense than the UT defense.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Well, the 4.5 is a bit inflated (or deflated) from the 4.75 he ran at the camp in Houston this summer. Nonetheless, I won't quibble about this. Welcome to the 40 Standings – Texas moved further away from Georgia but stayed in 5th. Still a long way from cracking the top 4 unless of course we flip the kid from Aledo, a 5-star. Aggy is now back in 16th place because our addition was their subtraction this time. Sweet aggy tears.

    SEC dethroned? How P5 leagues stack up after non-conference play Big 12 Overall: 22-5 (81.5%) Vs. FBS: 13-5 (72.2%) Vs. P-5: 6-4 (60%) Vs. Ranked Teams: 0-2 (0%) Notable Results: Iowa 18, Iowa State 17 | LSU 45, Texas 38 | West Virginia 44, NC State 27 You could make an argument coming out of non-conference play that the Big 12 is the strongest top-to-bottom league. The Big 12 has the best overall win percentage among the Power Five, and it fell only a few percentage points behind the Big Ten for top winning percentage against the FBS. The Big 12 is also the only league with a win percentage of 60-plus against the Power Five. The only thing holding the Big 12 back is a lack of ranked victories. But it’s not as if its representatives got blown out. Texas (LSU) and Iowa State (Iowa) both lost in the final minutes. The Big 12 is greatly buoyed by unexpected results from the projected bottom half of the league. Kansas (Boston College), West Virginia (NC State) and Kansas State (Mississippi State) each won a Power Five game they weren’t expected to. https://247sports.com/Article/College-football-best-conference-rankings-2019-non-conference-play-SEC-Big-Ten-Big-12--135731556/

    as long as they keep Demond Demas they are happy. They could have one recruit only and if it is Demond, then they feel they won the recruiting title.

    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.

    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.

    I'll add that this is also likely a case of keeping a few guys warm in case they want to pursue harder in the near future. Bradford, Dixon and Harrison are all versatile guys and aren't pigeon-holed to one position. I'm also guessing that RB and DB injuries have them considering re-arranging some numbers, plus the status of Josh Moore's return is very much up in the air.

    At some point he ran a 4.69, not sure if hand or laser. Hope he can still improve his speed. Didn’t know he got to 6-5, great if he did bc that’s a direct replacement for CJ. Very similar measurable. I need to go back and watch his film. Im hoping for another 5* from Arizona, that would really Ring my Bell

    Somewhere in this thread someone posted about how the aggies were laughing at our recruiting ranking at the time. We were in the 30's at that time. I put a laughing emoji because it must have been in June. It would seem the aggies were premature. That is different from the complaints that come from aggie wives and sheep.

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”
