  1. So what happens now, we have a returning QB who is on everyone's watch list, we have TWO legit 4/5 star blue chip QB's ( one of whom is on campus already), and now we have the #1 ranked RB in the country, along with a legit power RB returning and there is only ONE football that can be used at a time... Do we change/tweak the offense and feature a ground attack which will open things up for Sam OR do you ask one of the QB's to redshirt and hope they dont transfer out. how about a two back set I formation or platoon the two
  2. IMHO we will see a significant turnover of NFL QB's this year, due to retirement and lack of ability, with Tua being hurt I could see why Sam inquired about his potential draft status...If Colt and Chase Daniel, and RGIII can stick on NFL rosters , Sam might have a chance
  3. so do we redshirt Jackson and Card or are we going to have a QB battle before we even start ?
  4. it was/is a great hire...the fact he already has a history with TH is all I need to know. that and a 4 man front and DB coaching expertise..I like it
  5. Herman is taking a HUGE chance no matter which way he goes, he isn't dumb and won't bring in someone who could also replace him should the program falter, but there really aren't that many top coordinators that attend on a fast track to a HC position elsewhere. I dont see anyway he can keep Orlando, and with Hudson Card and Johnson coming down the chute, he needs a real innovative OC
  6. I think the only "hot seat" that Herman, is the one created by a myopic fan base that really doesnt understand what it takes to build a perennial national power Has Texas played poorly this year? you bet your behind they have, is it all the fault of TH? not a chance...there is plenty of blame to go around including those players who seem to consistently be out of position, take bad angles to attack, and those that make stupid bonehead penalties in crucial situations Texas my have needed this type of season because it will force his hand on position coaches and coordinators; He might even have to clean house. It will be interesting to see if either of the blue chip QB recruits are given a chance to show their stuff
  7. its not the plays being called...Texas doesnt have the playmakers and game changers, Sam has lost a bit of his mojo..Guess we aren't back
  8. I started to think about this in all the games we played this year, how many games did/do we have superior talent? I keep seeing how year after year we are near or at the top of the National recruitment wars, but somehow those blue chippers never seem to blossom or they get hurt or transfer out .. When I see other universities send endless bodies to the NFL, we do not.. Hate to admit it but TEXAS doesn't strike fear in the hearts of other teams or fans around the country, actual as fans we are wondering which one of our multiple personalty teams will decide to show up I still think Herman is the right man for the job but his coordinators aren't on anyones lists for the next big hire
  9. this game just showed me how vanilla the Texas scheme is and how predictable it has become. Sam was throwing the same type of pass all day just asking for it be picked for a Pick 6, They never adjusted for the blitz. OU offense was fresh and made ours look like had one option. Sam is a good QB, a good leader, but he can't or doesn't make the throws where he hits a guy in space and they do their thing..I was proud of the Horns, they hung in there and kept themselves in the game, except after Roach got ejected, they lost their composure.
  10. Really Sam, throwing into triple coverage,,,really dumb
  11. I guess I may be in the minority here but, Im not seeing all the hubbub about Bru McCoy, its not like he was going to "save the program " singlehandedly...Gee whiz we have lost 5 star blue chippers before and we did fine without them, in fact history will show that they ended up with less than star studded careers....anyone remember John Brantley, Ryan Perriloux, Jevan Snead Get over it , turn the page, If the kid doesnt want to be here , then he doesnt deserve to be here...Plenty of kids that would give their soul to wear the Burnt Orange
  12. I remember seeing an interview with Hammer where he stated that he wanted to come to Texas and WIN a National Championship...He comes from a background to where money is not an issue and physically he is VERY young...Unless he wins a US Amateur I think he will stay at least two years..He is very good but he is no where close to being ready for the TOUR
  13. NCAA runner up with THREE FRESHMAN in the starting 5...the future of Mens golf at Texas is very bright
  14. Beating Chokelahoma and Okie State in the same day...It was a great day for Longhorn golf... Cole Hammer is gonna be a stud when he turns pro in a couple of years
  15. EXTREMELY appealing, remember guys like LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Durant were here, so a coach knows that Texas can be an easy sell to a recruit, the current program will take a full rebuild, its time for CDC to make a change before irreparable damage is done to the brand, if the buyout is what is stopping them from pulling the trigger, they have the wrong coach...What if we are in this same position next year, how much did we save $$$ ? make the move CDC
  16. There are 68 better teams than Texas right now...that is totally unacceptable for a university with our resources, it looks to be the weakest program at the 40 Acres...we deserve better
  17. I hope that Michael Center hangs by his tennis balls for the shame he has brought to the University, I also hope they get all his co conspirators at the University and they all serve jail time for the damage they have done to the reputation of the school
  18. sad to read about Mr Nobis...one heck of a legend in Texas football, probably the best LB of all time
  19. So the Horns have the MaxPreps POY and the Gatorade POY on campus at the same time, my question is how do we get both of them on the field at the same time along with Collin Johnson, they all cant play in the slot...How much does this change the offense... It almost reminds me of when we had Roy and BJ at the same time and both were considered the best WR's in the state..Roy had a great career , BJ, not so much Only so many throws to go around, not like we are going to an Air Raid type offense and throw it 40 times a game
  20. in light of the allegations of Zack Smith concerning Herman, I would think Applewhite would be person non grata...the program does not need that kind of scrutiny...forget what Major did on the field, his off the field baggage would make for a media feeding frenzy
