  1. Sark was on the Dan Patrick show this morning and he was asked out how difficult it’s going to be to out recruit Nick Saban, his response was, “I hope to still be here 15 years from now and people will be asking how do you out recruit Steve Sarkisian?”

    Some sad news tonight

    I know some of us here are/have been posters on other sites over the years. One of our close friends, @JimsTexas, passed away this morning, peacefully in his sleep. His son called me tonight with the news. Jim had some health issues, but still was able to go out and fish and faithfully followed the Longhorns, never wavering in his support regardless of recruiting classes, coaches or W/L record. I've personally known him for years and spoke with him on Monday night. I'm happy to call him a friend, spelling mistakes and all. If you're the praying type, please keep his wife, son and gr

  3. quit making excuses for them would be a good start. I have three separate lines of Cherokee and I dont hold ANYONE today responsible for the Trail of Tears, of which two of my Cherokee lineages were forced to participate. The Irish were treated horrendously as well. Every race and every culture has had slavery and victims of it. Name ONE player at Texas that isnt at an advantage over 90% of peers in the state of Texas. You may find a couple or three exceptions but for the most part, these players are self-important, entitled, brats screaming for attention (as are players in other prog

  4. Disclaimer: I have no idea how good a coach Pete Golding is. But as I've followed all of this stuff over the past week or so, I get the impression that there are not all that many assistant coaches out there that a team's fanbase doesn't hate. When Bama's defense plays well, it's due to Saban. When it plays bad, that's on Golding. Typical fans, lol.

  9. This is hilarious! New DC is Lupoi. No, it's Golding. No, it's Arnett. It's Ash. No, OMG, it's Lanning! My wife is rolling on the floor laughing. She says we sound like gossiping women at a hen party.

  10. IT saying Corey Raymond is still in play, as of earlier today. We could be looking at a co-DC situation with he and Zach Arnett.

  11. I think LSU is not where an aspiring coach wants to go right now, at least not until O shows he has staying power. Not sure he can do it. My Dad used to say that a person can let adversity beat them or make them stronger. After watching Sark’s press conference, I think he put a lot of effort into making himself stronger.

  14. View from the Cheap Seats-Buffs return to Texas Game review and season/off season wrap up. One of the things bowl games bring is hope for the following season. It is a game where younger players who have often not gotten much playing time, get a chance to shine while giving the fans a glimpse of things to come. This year’s Alamo Bowl game certainly gave TEXAS fans what they hope is a vision for the future though sadly, TEXAS has failed to deliver on that tease for 3 years in a row. While not the “signature win” of the Sugar Bowl beat down of the Dawgs, this was easily

  19. Or we can say the past is best left in the past. This 2021, and you have an opportunity rarely given to people. An opportunity for a free education that will serve you the rest of your life and an opportunity to hone your football skills with a possible opportunity to audition for an NFL team. If that’s not go enough for you because of a song, then bye. Let’s move this discussion to the political tread. Don’t want to high jack this one.

  20. Put it this way, the offensive display put on Monday night has opened some eyes and the credit is going straight to Sark. Wheaton is not the only one re-thinking things right now. But Wheaton is seriously considering flipping. Same offense he wanted but much closer to home. Why not?

  21. It's hard to not be excited about the possibilities that Sark brings to Texas. I hope he can manage all of the off the filed stuff as well as he manages the offense on the filed. He seems to exude confidence on what he understands about football and what it takes to win. After the Urban Meyer hangover I know for myself I felt let down. I have to say honestly that he seems to be a great hire. Of course winning will determine that.

  23. Sark knows the DC is his most important hire, and also his biggest blind spot as an offensive minded HC. He's also being careful not to repeat the mistakes of Herman. Herman was told to hire the best available and use the blank check provided. Instead Herman went with comfort hires. Maybe he thought they were the best available, but if you don't actually beat the bushes people won't believe you. Sark may be worried (and rightfully so) that if he simply sticks with Ash without a search the perception will be he didn't look hard enough... especially if the defense struggles. So he may

  24. Here are two points made by editor from another service: “Great staff” doesn’t mean a collection of well known coaches who score high on name recognition polls. It means a staff that fits together in complementary fashion with a great mix of recruiting ability and coaching acumen. Reminder: The fan’s lust for a Super Team of All Star coaches rarely goes satiated. There really isn’t such thing as an all star coaching cast. If Sark nails the DC and OL positions and complements them with a couple of volume recruiters, the staff will be very good. Texas will recruit well out of the gates

  26. In his 6 season as head coach at Texas, Shaka Smart has had plenty of big wins. The Longhorns have knocked off North Carolina three times while also securing wins in several different seasons against strong Oklahoma, West Virginia and Texas Tech teams. None of those wins compare to the win he secured at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon, blowing out 3rd ranked Kansas 84-59. The win improves the Longhorns record to 8-1 and 2-0 in Big 12 play. Texas received a huge game from their frontcourt, with Jericho Sims turning in one of his best performances of the season to go along with a str

  27. When I finally got to my computer today, I was greeted with Herman Fired and Shaka's team putting it to Kansas at Phog Allen. What a great start to the day. Then when rumors came out that Steve Sarkisian was the front runner I had misgivings. Sarkisian was not a name that moved the needle for me. But after watching his introductory press conference I was impressed. I have a feeling that Texas may have gotten this right. Maybe I'm being caught up in the moment, but after Strong and Herman I would like to think that I am being objective about this. Time will tell.

  30. Herman squeezed 8 wins from a team that should have won 10. That’s the way I see it. Also failed to win the conference when it was his for the taking. Regardless of bowl record, it’s time to turn the page.

  36. OSU is the undefeated Big 10 champ. If OSU would have played all it's games, they likely would have gone undefeated. You can't blame the team(s) for the Big 10 making the decision they did. ND has a better win (a 1 loss Clemson vs a 3 loss Florida). Their loss was by 24, aggy's was 28. When Texas should have gone to the Big 12 & NC game in 2008-09 instead of ou, aggy loved the fact that we as fans were upset and they laughed. Karma, it's a b*tch.

  37. Every staff needs a Golding. Someone to take the credit for all the bad plays. in all seriousness Sarkisian’s offense is a thing of beauty. Hope he brings it to Austin.

  38. I’ll throw in my 2 cents. I’m not a big fan of Muschamp at this stage of his career. I really liked what Ash had started and wish he would get a shot. We shall see. I like what Freeman did at Cincy and he would be good IMHO. I feel bad for the players with all the revolving coaches they have had. Would be nice to keep Ash and have some stability. I hope Sark gets input on multiple guys and chooses wisely. That’s a BIG hire.

  39. We really need whoever recruits OL for Bama. Reading that's Flood and Banks. It's not our skill players that have slowed our offense down, IMO.

  40. Several sites reporting there was a players only meeting today led by guys like QB Casey Thompson, RB Roschon Johnson and LB Juwan Mitchell. Overall the morale was good and there wasn't nearly the amount of resistance to change as there was when Strong was fired. The team is excited about the possibilities of being coached by Sarkisian and his new staff, and they're focused on S&C for when the spring semester starts.

  41. I dont get it. If our team didnt suck we wouldnt have made a change. I have seen ....i hope he keeps with damn near every coach but Herman mentioned. I dont care if he keeps some or none of them. I just want him to hire guys that will do the best job period! As far as a player only meeting being a potential problem....screw that! If they all quit, then he will not have any issues with any of them. Those that want to play for UT stay and those that dont....GTFO!
