  1. 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...

    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

  4. View from the Cheap Seats-Mad Miners of UTEP Could not have scripted it better. In a year where we have been deprived of sports, spring football etc, the 2020 college football season is finally here and with it a degree, of a return to normalcy. Coach Tom clearly has done a good job getting the team ready for the opener and TEXAS dominated an outmatched UTEP team of mad minors (miners?) from start to finish. On a day when the BigXII teams SERIOUSLY stubbed their toes, TEXAS, OU and WVU represented well against each’s respective tomato cans. ISU Kan

  5. @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

  7. 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

  9. Good write up. I totally did not expect this outcome but am grateful for it. I think CTH has shown us something. Two solid coordinator hires, kept recruiting humming along, and now this – a total domination – to head into the off season. I think this is why you let this play out. We once thought CTH was a great hire. I don't think we were wrong. IMO, the difference tonight was the pass pressure we were able to generate. And much of it came from the DL, not blitzes although those helped too. Ossai had a coming out party tonight. Break out the piñata, I'm on board! Play calli

  10. Here's why I think the herman not giving up reins of offense rumors started (which is absurd btw). Air raid offense tend to do a large chunk of their practices on air, meaning practicing live situations without a defensive body on the field. When there is a team period in practice air raid offenses tend to go as fast as humanly possible to practice their tempo. This makes it extremely hard on the defense to get a good practice, teach correct alignment, and fix blown assignments. Sounds to me like Herman knows a good offense is a dime a dozen (especially in the big 12 and so are good offensive

  13. Just spoke to my buddy down in Austin. Things could not be better in the locker room right now. Winning helps, but kicking a team's ass all game long does wonders. That was the good news. The really good news is that Alfred Collins is ours. Put him in the calculator. Have no idea when he intends to announce though. They're trying to get Princely back in the class. Things recently took a turn for the better on this front (coaching change, scheme change). Said he's not sure Rakestraw gets an offer. I was pretty surprised by this. He didn't elaborate on why. Dixon is probably

  14. OU mod thinks Texas is in the lead for Collins and it's going to take a lot for anyone else to land him. All our commits have been with him at the game he's playing in and he watched the game last night with all the Texas commits.

  15. This is the last day of the year and the last day of the decade. Good riddance! This decade can't be over soon enough as far as Texas football. UT had a 70-57 record for the decade going into this game. That's an average of 7 wins a season and an average of 5.5 loses per season. Hopefully, a win tonight will help with a new start next year for the next decade because this one stunk.

  16. Exactly. The scheme itself, i.e. the power spread, is not the problem. It's game planning, play-calling, and coaching on that side of the ball.

    Hello Everyone!

    I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was very good. Friday was great when I saw the Texas offense assert itself again. I truly believe that Herman started calling the plays himself after the first futile drives. The difference was just too dramatic. After those first drives we simply dominated, and the offense was fluid, fun. btw, is there anything that Roshon cannot do when it comes to football? That drive where he and Sam carried the load, and we scored. What a statement! Big Mal, what a beast! His energy could power a major city. I’m going to m

  19. Here's the latest from Anwar as of 2:25 pm today. Eagles practiced on Wednesday and is expected to practice on Thursday and will travel with the team to Fort Worth. He missed practice on Tuesday due to a personal issue which has since been resolved and he will play on Saturday.

  20. If you’re a blue blood school, you ought to line up and whip your opponent with superior athletes. Our defense is all about deception and fooling the QB. It is tailor made for a mid-major that cant compete athlete for athlete. Well, from my vantage point it looks like we end up fooling ourselves. There is no reason, ever, for someone to be so wide open that the nearest defender isn’t in the TV screen... well, other than someone simply doesn’t know where to be. Too much thinking required rather than 11 men flying to the ball. Robinson came in mid-season and fixed the Manny Diaz mess

  21. "The Eyes of Texas are upon you..." Yes, they are, and when you run off the field and show disrespect for your school, what have you accomplished? The school song is only racist if you imagine it is. Racism is real and it's bad, but the school song is not a good example. Creating a problem when there is no problem is utter foolishness. Choose your battles wisely, young men, so you don't do damage to the very cause you're fighting for.

  27. Many in academia are well known for being jealous, petty, territorial, and overly impressed with themselves. And they are, in general, easily replaceable. Coaches are judged on their performance and paid for delivering demonstrable results. That level of accountability never has, and never will exist in academia. What anyone’s degree stands for is determined by how it empowers them to reach their goals in life. Whether or not some tenured, pinhead prima donna approves of the pay rate of other university employees means nothing. Like I said earlier, if any academic wants to give up

  29. 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!"

  30. 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

  31. 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.

  32. 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

    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, th

Anyway, a couple of the boys had some interesting news about the new coaches. They're excited about them. Says they take no shit and allow no shit from the players. And they are COACHING! And they will tell Herman when he is wrong nd when to shut the F up and let them handle it.
