    Decommitment

    I have decided to decommit from being a Texas fan for the remainder of 2020. A lot of thought was put into this decision, however after the in ability for our coaches to teach basic skills, such as blocking, tackling and not getting penalties I have decided to spend my time elsewhere that is more deserving of my time. please respect my decision

  2. The reason DKR got out when he did and why his recruiting began to suffer is that recruiting became more like a "job fair"...or better..."deal or no Deal"..So many players were getting paid that it got hard to no go along. Frank Broyles threw in the towel before Royal. In fact , the story was that when DKR went to Earl Campbells house for his "in home" he asked Earl if he had been offered money. Earl just laughed....of course he had....but then he got real serious and told DKR...."Coach, my people were bought and sold like cattle at one time.... aint nobody buying Earl Campbell!"

  3. The eyes of Texas situation on Saturday has added a new level of dissatisfaction with Herman. As you would expect there were a few folks hesitant to fork out the money to get rid of him but the new thought is “he doesn’t represent the UT brand” it’s beyond X’s and O’s. They were under the impression that the players could choose but they would “choose” to honor the University. One particular, infuriated alum said “it’s time to blow it up. Get rid of his ass and pull every scholarship but Sam’s. If they are going to wear Texas across their chest it needs to mean something to them”. If you thoug

  4. The new president has a committee to investigate the history of the Eyes of Texas. I heard the coaches were made to stay. You can flame me all you want but I bet the whole thing is Carrington bitching about having to stay. He been one of the main outspoken one since this started. If he doesn’t like it go work somewhere else. I don’t give a crap. Again we are spending more time on this stuff than getting ready to play football. Texas made a good faith effort with several concessions, but guess what......it’s not good enough. Guess what else.......no matter what they do it won’t be good enough.

  5. I'm sitting at the beach now relaxing and letting the stress wash away from me. Maybe its the Hawaii beach talking, but I'm going to try a different approach than i normally would. This team has a lot of work to do, but i would rather learn that after a win than a loss. They got a conference win on the road and learned a lot about themselves in the process. One thing they learned (hopefully) is they're not as great as maybe they thought they were and cant take anyone for granted. Again, they learned this in a win. They also learned (or at least I did) that this team has heart and

  6. Come on now.... You know that 2 week fix was the exception not the rule. Plus if anyone had already figured out how to shut down Big 12 offenses everyone would do it. Leach takes it to the sec and almost scores fitty, against lsu with the DC everyone wanted before Orlando. Point being... no one has the answer. I do know Ash deserves more than 2 games.

  8. I'm kind of bored today, so I decided to watch a little of the TCU and OU games. Imo, there are 4 things the offense needs to do to be consistent and successful. 1. PLAY Jared Whiley A LOT more. That dude is a player and his blocking is fairly decent. Play him 2. Bijan Robinson needs to touch the ball at least 15-20 times a game. I don't care if he gets the handoff, flares out to the flat, or runs the wheel route. He is so dynamic. Time to take the shackles off of him. 3. They need to run more zone read with Sam keeping the ball more or run more QB power. Bottom line, Sam

  9. And that right there says it all when it comes to SJW's. Lets pick on the one guy that doesn't break tradition. That's the main reason that this movement has so much "support", people are afraid to rock the boat. Hat's off to Ehlinger for showing his school spirit despite cancel culture.

  12. I know this kid may be plan P for the OL, but I have no reason to doubt the evaluations of this staff, especially on the OL. Christian Jones looks to be every bit of an under valued prospect, same can be said about Hookfin, Karic (according to early returns), Kerstetter, and certainly about Cosmi. They've done more with lower ranked guys than some other programs have done with higher ones. Wish we could see what they can do with a room full of 4 and 5* OL.

  15. No, I compare CTH to Tony Romo. He wins just enough to give you hope, then he goes out and brutally kills that hope. And it will be rinse, repeat each year. Make a preliminary deal with Urban, come back and fire CTH, wait until CTH clears the parking lot, then hire Urban officially.

    Hermann needs to go

    I agreed that him surviving this for the rest of the season seems impossible. We as fans are looking from the outside in. Unfortunately the decisions are made from the inside out. Generally I don't bring this up because people tend to get irritated if you name drop or share what seems to be insider information. Let me be clear that I am only a fan nothing more or less. Last year I emailed the athletic department about my concerns with TH as the coach and the constant deflections and winning is really really hard crap. I received an email back from the athletic department asking for

  18. Well if you want to go back in history, the majority of slaves sold to the European slave traders were sold by fellow Africans. The tribes would fight each other and the victors would sell the losers. Black people sold black people, I guess boycotting Africa is next? BTW, slavery is and was wrong however it's been going on since the beginning of mankind. In fact, it's still going on in some parts of Africa now. Just goes to show you how greedy people can be.

    I'm sure someone has posted the origin of the EOT, but here it is again. History The song was written in 1903 by John Sinclair. The lyrics were intended to poke fun at University President Colonel Prather. Prather had attended _Washington and Lee College_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_and_Lee_College) , where _Robert E. Lee_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_E._Lee) would frequently tell his students "The eyes of the South are upon you." Prather was known for including in his speeches a similar admonition, "The Eyes of Texas are Upon You," meaning that the state o

  20. Enough said…ONLY Sam and Buchyvsky (sp), the punter, standing and recognizing “The Eyes of Texas” says it all!!! The Eyes of Texas is our school song and is NOT racist!!! As an alum of the University of Texas, I and others have a voice and say about keeping and respecting “The Eyes of Texas” as our school song. It is NOT just a song to be sung and recognized in support of athletics. It represents the entire University, past, present and future!!! I say that if an athlete, especially on scholarship, at The University of Texas cannot at least stand in silence when “The Eyes of Texas” is playe

Anyone clinging to the myth that we are a blueblood cannot see the big picture.I realize that pre covid, we were the richest school not named Harvard, but how damned much money would we have pulled in (read TV contracts) had we been on a 30 game win streak? The bleeding has to stop now.Herman has had his chance. He failed badly. Charlie Strong....well, never mind. Lets face it.

  22. seeing Sam alone while listening to "the Eyes of Texas" postgame tell me volumes about this team, it breaks my heart, never thought it would ever get to this. I know there are some outspoken former players who have voiced their opinion on the social injustice both in the world and also the perception at UT, but NEVER I mean NEVER would I have expected to see a Texas team captain alone on the field after the game to face the music

  23. Tom Herman is definitely a step above Charlie Strong. The issue with Tom is. He’s a has a terrible personality, thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room, and he’s arrogant. Charlie Strong was actually a good dude. He’s players loved him. Herman’s personality only works if you’re winning. If you’re losing and losing the way he does, people don’t wanna hear your excuses.

  26. I've had an observation for some time, but it really hit home in this debate. Democrats, when defending their platform, rely on 2 things almost exclusively: 1. You're a racist. For years they insinuated this, but now they come right out and say it. 2. “You don't care about people.” If you don’t agree it’s because, you don’t care like me / we do. They don't defend the effectiveness of their policies, only that you're racist or heartless if you don't agree. This is known as an ad hominem attack, and in years gone by was considered the lowest form of debate - only used

  27. More than n once our defense lined up with our tackles almost out to the end position. That left a huge gap in the center of the defense and there was no line backer there. On at least one of those the quarterback ran straight up the middle untouched to the end zone. It was the most ridiculous defensive line placement I have ever seen. That is on Ash and Hermann. I was screaming at the TV each time it happened.

  29. View from the Cheap Seats-Texas Tech Great Googly Moogly’s What a roller coaster ride. It was a tale of two halves and a tale of two story lines. We would ALWAYS take an ugly, though exciting win over a well-played loss. TEXAS will move up in the National rankings as they now lead the BigXII. Deserved? No so fast my friends. We can also say that this team has more in common with 2019 than many will want to admit. Hey face it, it’s Lubbock, weird shit always happens in Lubbock. More than a few TEXAS seasons have died in Lubbock. 1999,

    Here's my best shot at an unbiased opinion (from a Trump supporter): That had to be the worst debate performance in American history: Biden - contradicted his own numbers repeatedly in the same sentence. Stumbled and bumbled around unable to make a coherent point. Said he was against and for the Green New Deal in the same statement. Said ANTIFA is not an organization. Threw out random statistics and numbers all night that I (nor anyone else I wager) had any idea where they were coming from. Reverted to name calling, “stupid, racist” and his “yak, yak, yak” moment was awkward

  36. I’m no ST coach.... but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that it’s not a real good idea to double clutch before punting the ball. Moreover, the double clutch was the reason for the block and not protection. but I’m in agreement with him that coaching is a bit of an issue here.

  37. People may be on the fence when it comes to Meyer, but a couple things come to mind in regards to him: 1. If he is the next HC, I would bet Ash and probably Yurcich would be retained. UM has gone on record as saying Ash is basically his guy and he thinks he will be a hell of a DC at Texas. Yurcich, likely would remain because he runs the style of offense Meyer prefers. 2. There would be no grace period for the players buying into his culture. He would walk in with immediate command of respect. 3. No need to sell recruits on his way. Kids would want to play for him.

  38. Keeping this fairly short, but Texas lost a game they should have won.... depending on your school of thought. The Ingram fumble is the easy scapegoat, but as the players mentioned in postgame, there were plenty of mistakes in the game that cost Texas a win. Texas IS the better football team on paper, but the game variables that aren’t literally at work on the football field are on the sidelines. Those are worth further investigation.... There are a lot of stats floating around about Texas vs the spread in Big 12 games they are favored to win and Herman’s record with ranked teams vs un

  42. It's amusing that now leftists care about the President's golf while it wasn't a concern under O. I'll let you research the government's expenditures under each administration to draw a more informed opinion. You'll find that O played golf more often, took more vacations, and paid salaries for bigger support staffs than Trump's. But, that does't fit your narrative. Don't let the facts get in the way of your inane rants.
