  1. At 5:14 PM today, our second daughter made her grand entrance into this world and officially made us parents of two! I’m happy to report that mom and little Mia are both healthy and recovering as I type this note. I’ll be a bit preoccupied in the interim, but I will be in and out periodically as I am able to get the family back home and settled. Until then, still feel free to send questions our way and I will try to get back to y’all as soon as I can!

  2. So this post has nothing to do with any UT sports, this is just me being proud of my daughter. She just got accepted into UT pharmacy school. Sorry for going off topic, but I had to brag a little. Back to you regular scheduled program.

  3. I wanted to everyone to know, I took @Sirhornsalot post wrong and said some pretty childish and unwarranted towards him. I sent him an apology in PM but since I made my comments publicly I wanted everyone to know. I enjoy this board, its the only one I visit my longhorn news. SHA is a good guy and have known him on here for years. Its not an excuse for my comments, but I have been going through a tough time the last few months with family medical issues. Been burning the candle at both ends and believe me I dont have much wax left. Again not a an excuse for my behavior. Sorry

  4. Okay, spoke to my friend this evening. Lots of good stuff. – The recent run on commits is enabling the staff to circle back and revisit some other recruitments that most think/thought are lost. Namely White (LSU) and Jaxon (OSU) and another OSU commit named Ransom. All three are very much in play, despite the commitments. Staff is trying to get them in for visits. Ransom is a name I didn't expect to be on this list, but he is. – Two things he's very excited about . . BOTH lines. The OL is working more like a machine, mistakes are greatly reduced from the past years and we're moving p

  5. 2nd or 3rd hand info, so take it for what it's worth. Struck up a conversation with a woman at work last week. I've seen her around, but we work in separate areas. She introduced herself. Last name Ojomo. Jokingly I asked if she had family in Katy (I'm in the dfw area). She said that her husband does, but she doesn't know the extended family as they are recently married. I briefly mentioned why asked and that there was a kid being heavily recruited by the same last name, but never told her my affiliation to any school. Fast forward to today and I run into her in the parking lot. She tel

  6. FWIW... and bear with me on this... Each week I receive the Forty Acres Insider from Chris Del Conte. I replied back to it the week after Iowa State with some constructive comments and suggestions about what CDC had written. My phone number was nowhere in my email. The next day my phone rings. I don't usually answer numbers I don't recognize (Robo calls and all.), but the number was 512.471.xxxx, which i recognized as the UT exchange, so I decided to pick up. I answer, "Hello." On the other end a man's voice says, "Can I speak to Bill?" I answer, "Who's calling...

  7. What I like about this site is the quality of the posters. I'm on most Longhorn sites where I can bring out my alter ego asshole persona. And, believe me, posters on those sites will happily confirm this. I have little tolerance for arrogance and condescension from posters or mods and this is where I get into trouble. So this is the only site where I reveal what little behind the scenes info I get. For whatever it's worth.

  8. Ladies and gentlemen that concludes the 2019 recruiting cycle. With this class now in the books, it is full steam ahead on to 2020 and beyond! Appreciate y’all following along as always. We will probably have something up in the next couple days discussing the Texas recruiting class. Until then y’all get stretched out and ready for 2020, because it is shaping up to be a fun ride.

    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

  10. For the most part our team doesn’t stay for/stand/sing/put horns up or participate in singing the Eyes of Texas? And the head coach doesn’t enforce the Athletic Director’s directives? Tom Herman should be fired for insubordination if he is guilty. End of story. There is no excuse. If not because of that he should be let go by the end of the season for not developing his players and for fielding a mediocre product over four years. Four years is enough time to see progress. Charlie got three but had losing seasons in each. Now on to Del Conte. He screwed up from the beginning by giving

  12. Georgia is a playoff team and one of top four teams in the country they said. Georgia is going to run all over Texas and it won’t be close they said. Georgia is too physical and defense is nonexistent in the Big 12 they said. THEY were dead wrong. Texas entered this contest a two touchdown dog to the Bulldogs from Athens, Georgia, and if you listened to the talking heads this game was over before the teams ever took the field. Just about everyone seemingly had written off the Longhorns having a chance in this matchup. That is just about everyone except the team itself. While Bevo c

  13. Excellent writeup Seahorn. In addition to those GA rushing stats-- 72 yards on 30 carries -- T.O.P. was Horns 35:00 to GA 25:00. How's that for exact minutes. Seldom see that. Horns passing yardage was 177 to GA's 224, but try this: Comp-Att for Horns was 20-28. And 2-2 on 4th down efficiency, with 9-19 3rd down. That's a lot of 3rd downs for the night. Not counting punts (guess this is how it works on the Team Stats sheet) Horns show 77 plays -- 28 passing, 49!! rushing! GA shows 65 plays -- 35 passing, just 30 rushing. This performance out of Texas, who hasn't

  15. I don’t live in Huntsville, but I am very involved with the high school. I have worked on an academic level Tee. I really respect him as a person. The day he committed, he brought Corby Meekins by to see me, and told me about his commitment. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to steal his moment. He is everything you could want in an athlete, a real team player and leader. Hook ‘em!

  18. 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

Since my crazy ass haven't been in here in almost Coons age due to alot of personal issues family related I've been having to go through and having to work several weeks straight without a day off. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your day. I'll be back later after work to pop in here and catch up on everything

  22. Saw Herman speak today at a luncheon at the Headliners club here in Austin. He did say that we would make room for 1 more OL commit in 2020 and that those of us who follow recruiting would know who he's talking about.........meaning Lindberg. Just wanted to share since there's been a lot of speculation as to whether Karic's verbal means were done with 2020 OL recruiting.

  23. If I were to base it online predictions, I would say Garret Wilson to Ohio state. But when I talk to my brother, it seems like we have more than a chance. Hope we scoop em up. Told Roschon to link up with Bragg too but he is already on it. Hopefully they can swing some.more kids to the burnt orange

  24. Daughter (Aggie vet school grad) thinks TAMU will never change until it gets rid of the Corps and all its faux "traditions". Son-in-law (Aggie vet school grad) thinks TAMU will never change until they get rid of the yell leaders and fish school. To be clear - daughter went to TAMU because they have the finest veterinarian school and son-in-law went to TAMU on a baseball scholarhip..and vet school. And both want to resume the rivalry with UT. Both think Dodds and bow tie were idiots. Neither are allowed to wear aggie swag in my home - including grandkids. That is my punishment for my

  26. FYI it's kinda long. I wasn’t planning or expecting to have to drop one of these pieces so early in the season, but now that I’ve had a day and some change to think it over I’m going put some of my thoughts on paper about what transpired on Saturday in Austin. I said in the predictions piece on Friday that no matter how the game played out that you couldn’t get too high or too low because the season can’t be won or lost in week one. I’m sticking by that because obviously there is still plenty of season left to circle the wagons. They say in coaching that when you go back and watch

    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

  31. Per Justin Wells of Inside Texas, 5-Star ATH and USC signee Bru McCoy has entered the transfer portal after notifying USC of his intentions to transfer. Texas will be right at the top of the list for his next destination and don’t be surprised if it comes together quickly. It’s on ladies and gentlemen.

  32. As you can probably tell by now I was very hesitant to discuss this, but with things looking like they are leaking out I’ll share what I can on the latest #Bruuuuumors. Texas finished runner-up in the Bru McCoy sweepstakes earlier this month, and came very close to reeling in the 5-star ATH from SoCal. The hiring of Kliff Kingsbury at USC solidified McCoy staying home, but once the NFL came calling that added another layer to the story. There was talk that McCoy would consider a transfer if Kingsbury bolted, but even after Arizona made his hire final things were quiet. That was until tod

The entire Horn team, including Bevo showed up ready to play. Bevo took offense pre-game to Uga, the yapping Georgia mascot and went after him, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. TEXAS came out and kicked the shit out of the Dawgs for 59 minutes. No clue what happened in the last 46 seconds (2 ejections, 3 penalties and gave up a TD when the D was wandering around lost and the c

Absolutely everyone.

    Prayers

    I'm going to be out of pocket for the next day or so. My sister will be undergoing cancer removal surgery tomorrow morning. She's endured 7 chemo treatments and now they're ready to remove the dead cancer. That might sound simple, but she's also dealing with a pacemaker and defibulator, so there's some risk involved. For that reason, me and my family would welcome and appreciate any and all prayers. Thank you in advance!

  40. Lol! The truth is you are correct. Hiring and firing of coaches is always a delicate and sensitive operation and for good reasons. There are the money aspects, reputations, pasts and futures of people, other coaches and the just plain optics of it. It's true that old codgers like myself who have grown up with people that are connected ti UT, get occasional morsels of interesting info. But we rarely are privy to the meat and potatoes. I will say this as most of you have already ascertained, as far as the admin is concerned the bloom is off the rose regarding Herman., And it is irrepa

  41. View from the Cheap Seats-Utah Utes get TRUCKED in Longhorn Stampede In what was the most complete game in all 3 phases of the ball for TEXAS during Coach Tom Herman's 3 year tenure, the Horns absolutely destroyed a talented and well coached (well not New Year's Eve) #11 ranked Utah Utes. Keep in mind that had Utah beaten Oregon, they most likely take OU's spot in the CFP, with the exact same results. Coach Tom now 3-0 in bowl games, off to a better bowl game record than any coach in TEXAS history. And he's done it against some very stou

  42. I'm sorry - got distracted before I could finish. I have been told that the coaches are beyond thrilled with our offensive possibilities. There sre some kids that have and are performing beyond their expectations. They are Epps (the coaches are GaGa over this kid and he is and has performed beyond their expectations), Ingram and Whittington (Herman says they are the best two running backs he has ever seen and that includes tOSU), Smith (they don't think he can be covered. Period). And, finally, Ehlinger (he has blown the coaches away this year). a Now let me say this. This in

Was a little stiff Sunday but was fine today. – Coaches are concerned game will be taken too lightly, so they're pushing on the gas a little this week. KU isn't a bad team. – Jones and Hookfin are going to be Horns. He did not say which was about to pop. Couldn't get him to understand my sentence, the bar was loud. lol – He would not elaborate, but said staff's confidence in the Bru McCoy recruitment has increased this week. They don't see a big name out there who will make a move this early so they don't think the situation will

  44. We aren't good enough to start Shane and win on the road. The margin between us winning and losing every single week is narrow. Need our best players to win the rest of the way. Not sure why we think we can afford to take our foot off the gas? We aren't that good yet.
