    @hornsups What’s to prevent other players from doing the same or leaving?? It better mean more than a UT education and a football career. Missing a season is a big risk and not many would want to do that, IMO. Make hay while the sun shines, as they say. Besides, its the rules. On the other hand, I think Overshown has a great point to make. There was talk. But there hasn't been results or communication regarding the issue. Thats on CDC and UT. I see nothing wrong with renaming some buildings, removing some statues and whatnot. They could at least get that moving. It’s a little disingenuous to say there will be a next and a next and a next Nonsense. Just LAST NIGHT protestors in New York shut down downtown with their protest. This, despite NY city gov meeting their demand by removing $1 Billion from the police budget. They had said they would stop if that demand was met. They didn't. The goalposts simply got moved and it didn't even take 12 hours to do it. Yes, it should matter. For the record, its unfortunate that the protest movement (not the Black Lives Matter movement) has been hyjacked by marxists in the form of white college educated liberals and BLM. Its tough to achieve your goals when someone else is ruining your moment in the spotlight. 1 year in college won’t end his career. Right now, he doesn't have a career. He was EXPECTED to make some noise this year, launching his career. But right, its just potential. And that potential will get delayed yet another year. What will he be like then? This isn't wise though I understand what you're saying. There was another way of doing this without hurting himself. Overshown is from poor East Texas, where I'm from. There's nothing there for him as far as a professional future. He needs to make it here or somewhere. And I’m sure Overshown knows what he is sacrificing. Young people are to be guided until they are adult enough to make their own decisions. This is part of what college is for. I don't think he received much guidance on this. I certainly wouldn't have told him to go throw himself on a sword right when things could have really opened up for him. Yes, these are my opinions. You're also stating yours. I enjoy reading yours as they make me think. But please stop with the knee-jerk thinking I'm employing racist thinking. I own a small business. If an employee wants to make a stand, he can stay home as much as he likes. I will hire someone to replace him and move on. This is the point of view I come from. There was a better way of doing this.

    Reflections on Independence Day

    Hope everyone has a happy and safe one. As a military brat, 4th of July held a special significance though truth be told, it's was all about grilled hot dogs and fireworks for years for me. As I have grown older, the amazing vision of our Founding Fathers has become clearer and our nations impact on the world, truly amazing. The Great Experiment As we get ready to celebrate the 4th of July, our nation faces her greatest internal challenge since World War II. This time we are at war with an invisible virus as well as facing civil unrest not seen since the Viet Nam war era. What better time to reflect on the impact of the actions of men, 244 years ago with a vision which would radically change the world. Let us begin by thinking about who these men were, men we know and revere today as the Founding Fathers. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton John Jay and James Monroe just to name a few. Many of these men were landed men of significant wealth who risked their lives, their fortunes and their families lives (oh yes, the Brits would hang their families as well. They chained one church closed with several score of men women and children inside and burn it to the ground) for an obscure notion that men were "endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights". The idea that men should not be governed by dictators, kings and tyrants but that the people should govern themselves. Keeping in mind that in 1776, this idea had NEVER been attempted, outside of the very small Greek City/States in the over 6 millennia we consider the history of "mankind". Today many in our nation take the risks and vision of our Founding Fathers for granted. Sadly too many citizens seem to lack a sense of "skin in the game", rather their rights are mere birthright entitlements. Worse, they try to hold the Founding Fathers accountable for actions 244 years ago, based on modern day standards.. The reality is we have enjoyed 244 years of progress, of building upon that vision to create the freest nation today, the world has ever known. We are truly the shining city on the hill but the job is not done. Nor do I hope we ever stop striving to be a better version of oursleves. And we have no problem candidly stating the Founding Fathers did not get it 100% right out of the box, but then no organization ever does. We did not get it right out of the gates for women, slaves, Asians who would be brought to America for work on the railroads and in port cities, certainly not for our Native Americans, for the Irish, the Italians etc etc. We took in the huddled masses, we did not always treat them well but with each generation that came, we saw the individuals grow or fail, thrive, build and stamp their own culture and flair on the melting pot known as America. For some perspective, starting in 1776 and going forward over the next 100 years, we see a world where less than 5% of the population would live in self governance:: By 1875 Less than 5% of the world would enjoy self rule By 1918 (the end of World War I) 20% of the world would enjoy self rule By 1940, just before the start of World War II, that number would fall to less than 15% By 1949, just after World War II, the number of nations enjoying self rule spikes to over 35% By 1988, Reagan demanded the USSR "Tear down this wall" and the cold war was won/ended, the world reached it's highest point of self rule with just over 40% of the world. It is interesting that each jump worldwide freedom and self governance and followed America taking the lead in stopping powers bent on forcing people to live under tyrants, dictators and powers that would oppress them. These are battles paid for with the lives of American citizens and the resources of our great land. In almost 2 and a half centuries we still see less than half the world enjoying the freedoms that our Founding Fathers envisioned, that Americans fought for and spread across the globe. . And we built this nation around the concepts of individual rights and capitalism. These two critical to America's success. But we go way beyond America's success. By exporting capitalism around the world, even in totalitarian nations like China, we have seen something else happen. Per the UN, in 1800 more than 60% of the world lived in "extreme poverty". Today that number has fallen to less than 20%. What has driven the fall? Simple, capitalism. How have we spread this? Largely based on the 3 most significant military conflicts of the last 100 years, World War I, World War II and the fight for global dominance vs the forces of Communism referred to as the Cold War. The US stood with her allies against the forces of tyranny and oppression and won each time. The by product, more nations adopting some form of self rule and with it, the opportunity capitalism brings for individuals to grow and create their own opportunities. For 244 years, we have struggled and fought and with each passing year our nation has grown better. We have found solutions, we have banded together. You see the VERY best of us in crisis. The way we rallied around New York CIty after 9/11, the outpouring of support when New Orleans and Houston were hit with hurricanes and floods or the Northeast when Sandy hit. When northern California was ravaged by fire, cities from across the nation sent crews to help. They called them the Cajun Navy when thousands of fishermen descended upon Houston with their flat bottom boats with one thought in their hearts, help fellow Americans. They did not ask about race or creed, they simply rushed to help without orders or even requests. This is America at her best when we step up to try and fix problems. We are at our worst when we try to tear things down. Remember the incredible vision of our Founding Fathers as we watch fireworks explode. Remember the sacrifices of our men and women who answered the call to serve our nation. Be they in the military, be they our law enforcement officers and firemen who without thought to their own safety, walk into harm's way to bring aid. And we remember another too often over looked group, those healthcare workers trying to heal the wounds and the ills that threaten us today. Forgive me for my unabashed and unashamedly cheerleading of our Shining City on the Hill. As I get older and reflect on travels across the world, to visits in 3rd world nations where people no longer live under the yoke of tyranny, I am forever thankful that our Founding Fathers risked everything, their lives their families and their fortune to embark on what we now call "The Great Experiment"

    I agree that Black Lives Matter, but in a larger context, who will disagree with me when I say that All Lives Matter? Because I am not black, but a different race, does my life matter less? Marquez’s letter was very well written; however, the ideas sound like those of a collective group that simply threw every idea out, and he included all on the list. I realize that our athletes sacrifice much for our team, but gentlemen, compared to Earl Campbell, Tommy Nobis, Vince Young, James Saxton, Jimmy Street, Bob McKay, Ricky Williams, Bobby Layne, the 1969 National Championship Team, the 1970 National Championship team, the 2008 team, and the 2005 National Championship Team, and countless others, exactly what gives you the right to request that our school song be changed? It seems somewhat audacious to me. Does your contribution matter more than theirs, do you matter more? Did you ask them if they would like to have their school song changed? i realize that at your age, you think the whole world revolves around you, but it doesn’t. The University of Texas program is represented by you and all of those who came before you. Their lives and contributions matter, as well. In my opinion, your request to remove The Eyes is childish and meant to antagonize. It’s my school song, as well as hundreds of thousands of others. If you want change, negotiate, don’t threaten! Hook ‘em!

    1) you’re either obtuse to the point that’s been stated repeatedly here or you’re purposefully missing it to Go on your woke tangent. if this is about our black athletes fearing they are going to be killed by the police - okay, then leave politics out of it. BLM pushes a Marxist agenda. And if UT athletics donates money to them - I think it would be a big mistake. 2) yes, it’s “their right.” And - I’m sure Texas will be just fine without me as well. But one thing I’ve noticed - going way back to college, is left wing types seem to be much more activist and vocal about their opinions. That is neither good nor bad I suppose - but it gives them the idea that everyone agrees with them because conservative types are less vocal. ESPN learned this the hard way, as did the NFL. If UT donates money to BLM (political organization) there may be consequences beyond what I do... but I think that you knew what I meant. 3) the fact that I don’t know what someone has been through does not necessarily mean that they are right and I’m wrong. And as for your conclusion..... there we have it - I had to read through a bunch of clap-trap to get to it - but because I disagree with horns up - I’m a racist and mourn for the Confederate flag. Can you not see your own blatant hypocrisy? I’m scolded for criticizing actions without “knowing what they’ve been through,” but you judge me because we disagree on politics. Priceless!

    Primal Defense, I can’t say I am offended. I know that I am intelligent. I am somewhat disappointed in your approach. If they wanted to say Black Lives Matter, Too!, then that’s what they should have said. As a woman, I was discriminated against in the workplace twice. I realized that I could become bitter, cynical, and become like the people that I loathed, or that I could take the experience, learn from it, and use that energy to become a better person. I chose the latter, and do not regret it.

    The way I understand it, Robert E Lee once said to his classes "The eyes of the South are upon you." Someone from Texas was in one of his classes and eventually used the line to "The Eyes of Texas." They are totally different meanings and there is nothing racist in the song itself. The fact that the Texas Cowboys once sung the song is irrelevant to me. Hitler once sang Amazing Grace but we still sing it out loud. So it's guilt by association, which truly isn't fair. Those who put away their history are destined to repeat it.

    I dont know Julius Whittier, but very well aware of who he was, but to single him out and not acknowledge the other black athletes is not the type of thing he would probably condone....Changing the names on buildings is another case of political correctness run amok and revisionist history...singling out the Eyes of Texas as somehow having racial overtones is absurd, no one is forcing anyone to sing the song, if you are offended by it then maybe you need to look at going to another school or burn your UT diploma. the University of Texas 2020 is not the UT of the yesteryear and to adjust its standards to appease the current political climate of the week is an insult to all those that came before them

    You're a Longhorn and I am a Longhorn. We both think Texas can offer as much as Alabama. But the truth is, today, we can't. Let's not get delusional and avoid reality. Tommy is a super blue chip - a rarity for a lineman. The classification is usually reserved for a "skill" player projected to be a game changer - ala Earl Campbell or Vince Young. In addition gaining Tommy's signature gets you a twofer with James. Now, put yourself in his dads place. Even though you have burnt orange flowing through your veins, as an ex-pro you understand the game is no longer a game and is now a business. You want your sons to have the best platform possible to launch them into a lucrative business. Bama consistantly does this and Texas has not. Them's the cold, hard facts and as a responsible parent you must forego your love for Texas and examine what is best for your sons. Once you take off your burnt orange glasses, you can see why Bama should be called a favorite. Bama solidly checks all the boxes. but we'll see. Herman is a tricky devil. and I will stack our alumni against Bama's alumni any day.

    Didn't know where to post this, other than here. Played golf yesterday with a few of my hoodlum friends. All are UT connected and all have heard that all of the coaches are confident we will win the conference. The coaches also feel that although OU is always a test that OSU will be their biggest challenge. They think the Brocks are waffling between Bama and us and the only reason is because of their dad (there are some things I can't reveal). But the consensus is that this team will be on a parallel with the 2009 team and maybe even better.

    Sounds like Mr. King is just trying to start a war white Christians. I personally could care less what color Jesus was, he died for my sins and that’s all that matters. We know his mother was a Jew and his father was God, does God have a color? Instead of looking for differences and ways to instigate a fight why don’t we look at similarities and find common ground? I don’t know much about Mr. King, but after that ridiculous tweet I’m not a fan.

    The virus started in China sometime in November, 2019 and was reported to the World Health Organization on 12/31/2019. 01/13/20 first confirmed case in Thailand; 01/15/20 first confirmed case in Japan; 01/20/20 first confirmed case in South Korea; 01/21/20 - first confirmed case in the US (the patient contracted the virus in Wuhan, traveled back to the US and was diagnosed here). On 01/22/20 WHO declared that COVID wasn't a global health emergency since there was no evidence to human to human transmission outside of China despite confirmed cases in Thailand, Japan and South Korea. 01/24/20 Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, comments that "We don't want the American public to be worried about this because their risk is low". First confirmed cases in Europe reported on 01/24/20. 01/30/20 WHO FINALLY declares COVID to be a global health emergency. 01/31/20 President Trump declares COVID a national public health emergency. 02/21/20 Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters that U.S. health officials were preparing for the coronavirus to become a pandemic. "We're not seeing community spread here in the United States, yet, but it’s very possible, even likely, that it may eventually happen". Trying to put dates on the CDC's screw-ups would take more time than I want to spend right now but... WHO had reliable testing kits available that the CDC declined to use because they were developing their own which created a delay in Americans being tested. The CDC test kits had to be approved by the FDA which caused a delay. The CDC kits were released in small numbers and, according to CDC guidelines, were earmarked for symptomatic patients (closing the barn door after the horses are already out?). The CDC kits have to be recalled because they are unreliable creating further delays. We were/are behind in testing because we didn't start early enough because through ego or ignorance someone decided that they could make a better homegrown test than the one that was available and, for the most part, reliable. Without proper testing it's hard to determine which areas are at risk and to plan on how best to contain the spread. COVID is a global pandemic and the mistakes and missteps made in handling it have been global as well and laying our current state at the foot of one politician is beyond ridiculous, it's short-sighted and looks/smells like political bias. Reporting and reacting to the virus was a mess from the start and there's plenty of "blame" to go around here and abroad. No one was prepared for this including the organizations who exist primarily for the purpose of preparing for, identifying, containing and mitigating contagious disease. Has Trump handled this well...yes & no...but find me a politician who has. Political infighting and partisan politics have been part of the problem from the beginning (on just about every issue). I can go online and find all the "facts" that I need to prove that our current state is the fault of one person, party, country etc.. but it's a waste of time because, IMHO, it's not the whole truth. I'm going with Occam's Razor...the simplest explanation that will account for a circumstance or event is most likely the correct explanation... the simplest explanation is that no one knew how serious this was and no one was really prepared for a global pandemic, we all got caught with out pants down.

It just wrong man. White Supremacy and Racism has been used to excuse bad behavior and radical socialist ideas that its lost its affect. I am speaking for myself. The more this kind of stupid crap happens man the more the average American realizes this isn't a race war. Its war on America itself. Wipe away its history, the good and bad, and dismantle it from within like a virus. Let me be very clear I am not talking about actual racist issues.

    I love college football. I have since the 70s. In a way it’s an escape from politics, work, etc.... I certainly do not watch it to be lectured about politics - or anything else. It ceases to be what I enjoy. They have “the right” to do whatever they want at UT, and I have “the right” to stop donating / spending money on them and watching it on TV. I have listened to the Ticket in Dallas since the mid-90s. And it became a bunch of sports guys lecturing me and mocking how I vote. “Their right” and I turned it off and haven’t really missed it since. UT athletics is treading on dangerous grounds IMHO. If I want political lectures I certainly won’t ask a college football player or Chris DelConte for it. There are better forums for that kind of thing.

    Cheese, Certainly not an owner here, but I believe the mission is to have a place to talk Texas sports, with some other discussions mixed in, whether it's BBQ, Bourbon, Beer, life, Texas lifestyle or other things. Try to keep politics out of the mix and be respectful to the other posters. @Aaron Carrara can chime in with anything else he can think of. The site continues to show growth and with that I think more members posting and creating dialogue with other members is a good thing.

    As I said in my post I can see that. Ben Carson is the exception rather than the rule but if he can do it then so can others. Look I am a numbers guy. Here are the numbers. 2019 10 million arrests in US 1004 Police involved in fatal shootings 41 of those were unarmed 19 of those were WHITE 9 were black 89 police died Now you will say blacks make up only 13% of the US population. So the numbers look skewed. right? I look at the crime population. White make up 44% and Blacks make up 42% of all crime. Yet twice as many unarmed whites died to police as blacks. How do you explain this? As for the "Youre telling on yourself" comment. Are you calling me a racist? If so thats your opinion and thats fine. Everyone has a right to their own opinions but I am not racist. I wont apologize for being a white male christain. I worked for everything I have and I wont apologize for that either.

    Java, I'm just now reading through these and of course there is a lot to discuss but i'm curious about this one. How do you suggest a police officer arrest a violent person that doesn't want to be arrested that is an immediate and imminent threat of harm to innocent bystanders? (and I'm not referring to George Floyd either, that particular move was not necessary on him at the time and the officer is going to be held accountable for it as he should). If a violent person gets away from the police because they couldn't subdue him and comes to your house to hide, killing your wife and kids quietly so they don't tip off the police. would you have wished they could have done more? And for the record, I completely agree that police reform is long overdue but this is something that has to be carefully dealt with. I don't agree on defunding the police and i don't agree with de-fanging the police but i definitely agree with some strong changes to them. I don't want the citizens of this country to have to protect themselves from criminals, thats a recipe for a real problem, much greater than the problem we currently have.

    Wow, Texas (The State of) has received warnings of protestors planning to deface and/or destroy the Alamo. The Alamo has absolutely nothing to do with racism. When I first visited the Alamo as a child, it was before all of the reconstruction. I don’t even recall a gift shop. By the old well, it was very quiet and peaceful. At the old barracks, where so many men died trying to buy Sam Houston time to gather an army, I felt like I was at a gravesite. The Alamo is a symbol of Texas Independence. Why would anyone want to destroy it? I cannot imagine why unless they are simply bent on wholesale destruction. For goodness sake, at some point, destruction only leads to more destruction. Role models need to speak out against this. George P Bush has said the Alamo will be defended, and there are dozens of law enforcement already positioned there to protect it. As he said, the Alamo is sacred to some. It is to me. The protective force is composed of the Alamo Rangers, SAPD, and DPS. For those who want to erase all symbols of our history, yours and mine, ours, have you ever read that if you do not learn about history, you are destined to repeat it. If you need the link the article on The Alamo, I can get it. My screensaver is giving me fits, so I am not including it.

    Not sure that anyone on here is in a position to question someone else's intelligence. I know I'm not.

    Here is my question. When did "The Eyes Of Texas" become offensive. Did Earl feel uncomfortable singing the song or did he even know of the beginnings of the music. Did Vince? I think it only became offensive when someone told the players that it was offensive. Just my two cents. Now I'm sitting here wondering who is gonna call me a part of the problem.
