  1. I'm sure that this has already been answered but I'm too lazy to look it up...how big is the Horns 2021 class expected to be?
  2. Cheap Trick was absolutely the worst show I've seen and the only concert that I've ever walked out of...horrible. I took my wife to see Phil Collins and have to agree, one of the best I've seen and "In the Air Tonight" is hands down the best song from any artist that I've seen live. The loudest concert was Sammy Hagar's "VOA" tour at the Summit. Sammy's one of the guys that you know would play all night if they'd let him, I've seen him a couple of times since and had a blast every time. Krokus opened for Sammy on the VOA tour...I didn't listen to them much before the concert or after the concert but they put on a good show that night and were a blast to watch. A close second when it comes to volume was KISS. I didn't get to see them until their first farewell tour with Peter and Ace but they were still rocking! When I was a kid we pulled up to my cousin's house in Baton Rouge, my aunt walked up gave me a hug and told me that my cousin had gone to the KISS concert about an hour before and had a ticket for me...no one would take me up there to find him. I'm still holding a grudge... The funnest concerts...Jimmy Buffett! I've been a Parrothead longer than I'd care to admit and have seen him at least 40 times...lost count after that.
  3. Absolutely!! The man is absolutely phenomenal! Both my boys are year-round swimmers and are going to the Longhorn Swim Camp this year for the first time. Both want to swim in college and the oldest wants very badly to swim for Eddie Reese so he's very excited about camp! I saw a couple of this year's Longhorns swim at a meet earlier this year...got to time one of them...I'd be shocked if we didn't see a couple of them swimming in Tokyo this summer.
  4. You'll be in our prayers, so sorry for your loss.
  5. This is the same Jimbo Fisher who defended/still defends Jameis Winston and won a national championship with him. I don't think he takes any of that into consideration...
  6. I'm with you on Garrison's, it's good but nowhere near what I expected after hearing friends rave about it. I'm glad that I won it...my boss had just about convinced me to spend the $$ to buy a bottle. "Young" is the perfect description...the flavor's just not as deep or developed. I'll go with Booker's or Old Forester 1920 for $30 less. Your collection is pretty damn impressive!! I love Blade and Bow, I haven't had the chance to buy a bottle of my own yet because I haven't found it at any of the liquor stores that I frequent here in Houston. Do you know the story about the keys? I've never seen the Little Booker's but if it's anything like big Booker's it's gotta be good. Old Forester's has slowly become one of my faves so I'm drooling a little at the Birthday Bourbon. It's almost impossible to find Eagle Rare around here unless you show up on the day they stock it...and that's just the plain ole bottle. The 17-year...you'd have to be pretty damn lucky. Funny Eagle Rare story...I have a friend who bought a bottle and put it with the rest of his bourbon in the pantry. He had a few friends over and put out a cheaper bottle since everyone was a mixer and he wanted to save the good stuff. One of his friends walks out to the backyard with a big cup of Diet Coke..."Man!! That Eagle Rare's good stuff". He'd mixed almost half the bottle with Diet Coke. My friend learned that it's a good idea to close the pantry door when the good stuff's visible on the shelf.
  7. How's Devils River? I've seen billboards all over Houston advertising it but haven't tried it. The only rye that I buy is Sazerac because it makes great Sazeracs...
  8. Tell that to Matt Rhule, while he didn't win a championship he did come pretty damn close without having Alabama talent. His recruiting classes were ranked 40th in 2017, 29th in 2018, 35th in 2019 and Baylor's 52nd currently. He's taken Baylor from a 1-11 team coming off one of the worst scandals in football to 11-2 with a Sugar Bowl berth and has done it without the benefit of having the "best players". You can sign the best players in the nation but if you can't do anything with them once you them get on campus you're not going to beat the guy that has the ability to coach up the kids who aren't the best. If you can't coach you can't win and if you can't win you're going to have a very hard time on the recruiting trail. About Nick Saban... The guy's won 6 national championships, 8 conference championships and has a lifetime record as a college head coach of 242–65–1. He's put more players into the NFL than I care to count and had 56 players who were on week one rosters. He can coach and he surrounds himself with people who can coach, that's why he wins and that's why kids want to play for him. You'd be a fool to believe that he's always had the best players, he hasn't, but what he was been able to do is coach up the 2&3 star kids to play like 4&5 stars and he's won championships with those kids. You don't always win because you have the best players, you win because you get the best out of your players and that's exactly what Saban does.
  9. Absolutely! It would've taken a couple of seconds for someone from LHN to point at the camera and say "hey coach, that's a live feed". Also...if you're gonna broadcast any "war room" live you might want to have it on a 10-second delay just in case a coach happens to let a profanity or two slip into their vocabulary. This is why it's best to wait until you have a little context before forming opinions. I find it hard to fault Herman for any of this.
  10. Doesn't matter who we recruit if we don't have the right guy to coach them up
  11. Was at a swim meet all day so I missed most of the game, turned it on as soon as I got home...wish I hadn’t My wife's a Baylor grad and got home before I did so I got a little trash talk and get to listen to a year of “scoreboard”... thanks, CTH
  12. Only aggy could watch the end of last night's game and take pride in one of their alumni turning into a thug on national television...
  13. I tried this but apparently Twitter doesn't understand aggy...
  14. That's the next one I'm going to try. Have tasted the Balcones (loved it) and the 1835 (take it or leave it), saving the Garrison Brothers for awhile. After tasting the Balcones, I'm going to keep that one to myself and for my bourbon-snob friends...it's too good to end up in someone's Coke.
