  1. Fonda San Miguel at 2330 W. North Loop (west of Burnet, east of Shoal Creek) is the place for me, if I want great Mexican food and an overall great culinary experience. Dinner only and Sunday Brunch. I've been going there since 1976. Not cheap, but well worth it, IMO. The Carne Asada with beef tenderloin is world class. So much food. I always have some to take home. The owner Tom, Business manager Janis and Restaurant manager Danny are all good people. I did all their mesquite dining tables, the mesquite, mahogany and copper hostess stand and Honduran mahogany bar. Some of their waiters have been there 20+ years. FWIW, I always ask for Stephen.
  2. The Amaya's used to be clients of mine. That place REALLY cranks at lunch. Unbelievable level of lunch business. Wednesday lunch special of Enchiladas Verdes con Pollo… smoking' deal for a great meal.
  3. Tyson's Tacos - 4905 Airport Blvd, Austin, TX 78751 http://www.tysonstacos.com I'm partial to the "Robinsonian" for $2.75 (migas, bacon, avocado, cheese) ​Two Robinsonians for around $6 bucks is a great, cheap tasty meal, IMHO.
  4. From the outside looking, I'd guess that if another recruit, or recruits don't choose Texas… and Texas still has room in the 2017 class, then if Texas does decide to offer, there is a better chance the kid will commit having been in and shown the respect of an official visit. It also wouldn't surprise me that the staff would communicate these conditions to the recruit, so he knows where he stands. Just my $.02, for the cheap seats.
  5. This This… and this. The Longhorns will be the next team up if either South Alabama or Louisiana-Lafayette lose. Northern Illinois would be in the mix if both were defeated."
  6. Very well stated. I think Charlie Strong is a man of the most highest integrity and honor, but allowing your team to have three (3) blocked FGs/PATs in one half reflects a lack of attention to detail... and an inability to adapt to game time conditions, IMO. If Herman can persuade D'Onta to stay, that would be huge. His twin brother on the team... can't hurt.
  7. I'd be pleased if Herman was able to recruit Duane Akina back from Stanford to renew DBU. Heard he was very disappointed Charlie Strong didn't retain him. Texas' defensive struggles might have been lessened had Duane been here rather than the secondary coaching revolving door that Charlie Strong installed. Akina was always one of my favorite UT coaches, FWIW.
  8. I still do not understand why CS did not retain Akina. I get it that CS wanted his guys, but from my viewpoint Akina was a very good DB coach for Texas. His string of Thorpe winners and NFL caliber DBs is almost unprecedented. I would not view Bedford as a scapegoat. Look at the Defensive stats this year and last. Last year I get it, no offense and the D too long on the field. This year that's not the case. The fact that it's the D that needs improvement is somewhat encouraging to me. CS knows defense. He will not tolerate mediocre play. The previous off season and start of last year Watson was able to baffle CS with BS. Bedford won't be able to. Just my $.02.
  9. Well, from where I was sitting, Dickson, the Australian punter had some booming kicks with good hang time. I think re: punting we're OK... place kicking... another story.
  10. With all due respect… and not trying to flame, but do you really know that Jeff Traylor thinks he's not ready to coach a college offense… or is that what you believe? I have not read that anywhere. I personally don't know what Jeff Traylor thinks or believes. But, I do know that Jeff Traylor sure seems like he's been an invaluable asset to Charlie Strong and Texas… and a real confidante. Reading about the "toxic" environment in the Offense meetings last season… and the lack of respect he was shown when he came in by the offensive coordinator, has to not sit well with him. Especially if he does believe he has the ability to be a college OC. Then, if he's getting in the mid 100Ks, or even mid 200Ks… and he's flying with the HC, AD… and University President to land the guys everyone perceives as being potential saviors of the program, or at the least CS's career. One's becoming OC getting $850K and the other guy's becoming OL/RunningGame Coordinator getting $550K… and you're getting at the most $250K. I can also imagine that not sitting too well. Maybe the only way he can get respect, if not through promotion, but at least through more $, is to test the waters… and get UT's attention. He sure seems like a team player, but charity starts at home, IMO. I hope he gets a very nice bump.
  11. Yea, Heard... and a whole bunch of other offensive... and defensive players. The offensive guys may actually get the football with some space to run. And a defensive guys may actually get some rest on the sideline instead of being right back out there after a 3 and out.
  12. Exactly!! I just posted this on another thread, not noticing this thread. "Hell, I vividly remember the first football game I went to when we moved to the Lake Travis area. The other team had just scored with about 45 seconds to go in the first half. I (ignorantly looking back) expected Lake Travis to take the kickoff and run out the clock. Lake Travis proceeded to run and throw its way down the field to score another touchdown with about 10 seconds to go in the half. I was shocked. Obviously, I knew nothing of Chad Morris… and what he was capable of. Just saying'… you never know what someone's capable of, until you give them a chance. Lots of top current D1 coaches were once Texas HS head coaches. Can't be any worse than what we witnessed last night…"
  13. My game plan: Demote Watson Promote Norvel , or Traylor to OC duties Didn't Traylor demonstrate offensive creativity with zone read, up tempo as head coach at Gilmer? Hell, I vividly remember the first high school football game I went to when I moved to the Lake Travis area. The other team had just scored with about 40-45 seconds to go in the first half. I (ignorantly looking back) expected Lake Travis to take the kickoff and run out the clock. Lake Travis proceeded to run and throw its way down the field to score another touchdown with about 10 seconds to go in the half. I was shocked. Obviously, I knew nothing of Chad Morris… and what he was capable of. Just saying'… you never know what someone's capable of, until you give them a chance. Lots of top current D1 coaches were once Texas HS head coaches. Can't be any worse than what we witnessed last night…
  14. Shawn Watson makes Greg Davis look like the second coming of Don Coryell. I can't believe I'm really saying that about Greg Davis. I guess it just proves, everything's relative. And... it reveals the frustration one can have, when expectations far exceed results.
