  1. If I recall correctly, Earl blocked a punt, early in the 3rd quarter, in the Astro Bluebonnet Bowl against the University of Colorado. This jump started a turnaround resulting in a victory for The University of Texas Longhorns!
  2. Just thought I would put this here as well as on the Shaka Shitshow forum. Would love to see our basketball program gain some positive respect on the national forum. If we are going to relegate ourselves to a certain degree of mediocrity and be content to maintain the status quo, then put some energy back into the Erwin Center by coming up with some things to energize our student base and get them out to all the home games. Energize them to come early and in large numbers and to be loud and supportive of the program. I am sure Del Conte can come up with some great incentives such as free admission to the first 2 or 3 thousand students to enter the arena for each game. Move the blue hairs/grey hairs (of which I am one) and make a minimum of the first 10 rows around the arena are designated for current UT students only. Since a buy out of several million dollars for Coach Smart is too much and basketball is not considered a high grossing revenue sport, let’s give something a try to try to energize and position the program to moving in a positive direction. Just some thoughts, but am certain Del Conte can bring forth monumental ideas and solutions to advance Texas Basketball into a national contender.

  4. It is so awesome to see this young man (Derrian) standing on his own 2 feet and smiling and dancing!!! May God continue to heal him and to guide and lead him on his journey! God’s blessings, mercy and grace showered upon you (Derrian) as He guides and leads you on your incredible journey!
  5. Kim Mulkey is a whiney little twit. She has coached some great Lady Bear basketball teams and has had much success as a coach. BUT she does not know how to win with grace and class. She is a whiney, classless and very unattractive person. Unattractive physically and the way she conducts herself in a basketball arena.
  6. Please make the new basketball arena more friendly to and increased exposure to UT students. Consider making the first 10 rows all around the arena for students. The blue/gray hairs will still have very cushy and excellent seats in order to watch the games. By the way, I am an alumnus of UT and am a blue/gray hair. We need the energy and support of our student body. The environment needs to be electrified.
  7. I truly hope that the information about Del Conte taking control and oversight over both men's and women's athletics is accurate. Longhorn Nation can only hope this is accurate.
  8. Still think that Tom Brady would have ended up concussed with the way we performed against Maryland, but do agree that Shane's performance left a lot to be considered. His decision making needs to be much improved. Coach Herman did comment on the play when Nickelson shifted to the left and Shane blew it rather than Nickelson.
  9. Even if Sam starts in place of Shane (injured), the offensive line will need to drastically improve!!! Tom Brady would end up concussed the way the offensive line performed this past Saturday.
  10. If Coach Herman is awarding him with a scholarship, this man must be able to play. What an awesome happening and a great video!!! HOOK'EM
  11. That is an incredible committment video. WOW!!!!!
  12. WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! Mr. Bamba is definitely mature beyond his young years. He will not only be a positive for Texas Basketball, but also for The University of Texas. This young man has set himself up for unlimited future success. Congratulations and all the best to you, Mr. Bamba.
  13. You might consider giving East Bernard, Texas honest consideration.
  14. Okiehorn, The June issue of Texas Highways magazine has a 6 page article about Wharton! Look for it; you'll enjoy! I grew up in Wharton and it was a great place to grow up, but the town was more vibrant at the time and much more economically sound with the farming and ranchng, oil production and Texas Gulf Sulphur Company. Also was an extension of the Houston Medical System, having 2 major hospitals with some very sound and professional doctors. Don't think todays medical system in Wharton is the greatest and most of the merchants and business or yesteryear are no longer to be found. Just do your research so you can formulate a decision that is best for you and your family.
  15. Can you yodel, Sirhornsalot? Something like old lady who...lol.
  16. Only thing that makes Wharton still a viable community is Wharton County Jr. College. Much of Wharton has changed since the 60;s and the 70:s. There are still many good people in Wharton, but it is truly not the great community that it once was.
  17. I am not capable in doing graphics or any type of visual presentation, but am wondering people's thoughts on a matte finished burnt orange helmet with a white Longhorn decal on each side of the helmet. This would look good with storm trooper white, all burnt orange or a combo burnt orange jersey or pant with the opposite in white. Just a thought. Would be interested in others opinions.
  18. I go back to the Leon Black and Gregory Gym days of Texas Basketball. Although we were not very good, we had great crowds and very much enjoyed sitting right behind an opposing teams bench or on the first row with my toes sticking over the out of bounds. Harassed the opposing teams and the refs. It was awesome. Present day students need to experience this opportunity which I feel will extend to creating enthusiasm and enhanced performance from our team. Texas students need to have courtside seating and at least the first 5 to 10 rows all the way around the court. Although I am not an engineer, could a new arena be considered to be placed atop an existing structure such as a parking garage or some other avenue be explored? Just some thoughts. I do think the new arena needs to be on or as near campus as possible.
  19. Brett must be hung like a stud racehorse!!!
  20. If true, any idea as to who the player was that Coach Herman called out in his initial address to the team. This player might be in line as an attrition candidate.
  21. Enjoy the win, but tap the brakes. It was Iowa State. We just need to remain focused and play one game at a time. Hopefully we will build upon this victory.
  22. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around the Way family. May He give them the strength, love, direction, mercy and grace that only He can give. Blessings, Grace and Peace to the Way family as they navigate their grief.
