  1. Agree 100 percent. I just wrote a lot more but will erase and leave it at that.
  2. Thank you Sir, for explanation. I’ve been out of the loop lately. Hook’em.
  3. I notice 247Sports says 4 Stars. Giving Horns just one 5-star recruit #9 National Class.
  4. ESPN this hour showing 2109 class ranking 1. Alabama 2. Georgia 3. A&M 4. OU 5. Horns saying first time three schools from same conference the top 3 Colin Cowherd would point out that all 5 programs are in the south, in warm-weather climates. He constantly points out the recruiting advantage of climate and this swath from the south across Texas. I would point out that three of these five are Cotton Bowl - SWC - Big12 landscape; in, and hovering above, the greatest state for football.
  5. What was that Sam yelled out in the Sugar Bowl...
  6. Alright Alright Alright!! Hook'em Welcome to the 40 Acres, Bru!!
  7. Beating Georgia. And the way it was done. That was big. Exclamation point. Keeping all the coaches. VERY big. Trajectory. All of the above.
  8. Well stated, and a tribute to the class of all that is Texas and Burnt Orange.
  9. Saw this earlier today. Destiny and a hand of fate has appeared in the sky with a Hook'em, admist Burnt Orange sunsets to the west... Make it so!
  10. Unrelated b-ball .... re: this Sat night ESPN, 6pm, #1Duke - #4UVA game. ... "Lucky" students are camped out in tents beside Cameron field house from now to Feb 20 home game with UNC. So today ESPN crew filmed K-Ville where the tents are, and my daughter's tent got featured! Only she had class and research lab, so texted me that just her sleeping bag and friends got in the clip. I'll be looking for my priceless REI air mattress I "loaned" her (if I ever get it back). Was said on Cowherd this week, or maybe was the Big Monday broadcast of the Duke-Syracuse game, that Coach K was
  11. For some reading pleasure... this SEC RANT dot com thread. Wow! Aggie is taking this loss really hard https://www.secrant.com/rant/sec-football/wow-aggie-is-taking-this-loss-really-hard/81302858/
  12. My bold on last 7 words. Accurate, and changed effective this season; pronounced heavily in the Sugar Bowl. To a recruit: if you want to play top level AND be coached well and developed... and same for those lining up beside you -- and live in the top city in the country -- your zip code is 78705.
  13. So I tried to re-do the image in the previous post to make it more readable without clicking on it, and ruined the entire post. If anyone wants to clear it out, please do so. Did not allow me to edit, erase, or cancel the image. Or I knew not how.
  14. For your viewing pleasure, the Team Stats of the game. This was a beat down. I just wish the late penalties had not happened, leading to the 28-21 score, so at least it ends 28-14. Oh, well.
  15. For your afternoon entertainment, try The Paul Finebaum Show. I missed the first hour, but it's still rolling. The calls from Georgia fans are reviting! :)
  16. Excellent writeup Seahorn. In addition to those GA rushing stats-- 72 yards on 30 carries -- T.O.P. was Horns 35:00 to GA 25:00. How's that for exact minutes. Seldom see that. Horns passing yardage was 177 to GA's 224, but try this: Comp-Att for Horns was 20-28. And 2-2 on 4th down efficiency, with 9-19 3rd down. That's a lot of 3rd downs for the night. Not counting punts (guess this is how it works on the Team Stats sheet) Horns show 77 plays -- 28 passing, 49!! rushing! GA shows 65 plays -- 35 passing, just 30 rushing. This performance out of Texas, who hasn't
  17. EDIT. 27-Dec. 11pm: Major errors in this as I mis-read a post and did not actually review State title game outcomes. Been that kind of week for me. SCRATCH THIS WHOLE PARAGRAPH: Not all the Texas teams in this 'small school' list won state. Grandview lost to Malakoff and placed 11th Nationally, and Mason (#7) lost to New Deal. HSFA -- High School Football America Small Schools Top 25 California's Mater Dei (once again!) is 2018 national champ in big school division. Small School division, 2018 National rankings: Newton #2 -- edged out by a Pennsylvania school Mason #4 Mar
  18. I thought the Newton offensive game plan, especially for the second half with a surprising 21-0 lead due to turnovers, was not wise and almost cost them the game. Should have been a complete run game, no 4th down attempts; punt, play defense, run clock, rely on defense and field position -- run zero risks of giving any advantage. So the pass when backed up inside the 10 risked the safety -- did happen and led to giving up 10 points. Momentum Canadian. Newton was not used to playing an NFL-type game of low-risk possession. Give nothing; make the other team earn everything. They m
  19. What a year.. these recent stellar teams failed in the semis' to advance. Allen Westlake Lake Travis Cartharge Gunter * West Orange the previous weekend, I believe it was If I did not have family and work obligations, I would enjoy Thur-thru-Sat all games.
  20. I watched Newton - E. Bernard on live streaming. UIL Sports Network, actually pretty cool setup. Evenly matched, in particular the first half. E. Bernard determined not to be run on. Or passed. Chess match, the game played mostly within 3-5 yards either side of the LOS, both teams offense or defense. Neither team could break anything open and seemed to be taken out of their game -- at least Newton was. Barlow was neutralized. T. Brown #8 did not play. Newton got to the EB quarterback in the backfield not infrequently. 3rd Quarter Newton pushed the chains more and started creatin
  21. No longer sure how to gauge a playoff game involving Newton. Just saw these stats. Fan FB page: All you Newton Nation stat heads get this, Newton scored 79 in the Region 3 finals game. The other 3 regional final games (6 teams total) had a combined 76 points scored. Let that sink in. The TOTAL COMBINED POINTS were 76!! Purple Pride Never Dies!! Ouch!!
  22. Fodder for Reading. Off Newton Sports FB Page. And this is a special town. About the time our family moved there, heard about the local barber stopping in middle of a customer to conduct a wedding. He was justice of the peace as well. The Newton County Herald was as fine a weekly wipe as you could hope to obtain. When I moved there it was printed in cold-set type. Lots of memories. Thru the 50s, with just under a thousand population, had 3 car dealerships, a movie theater, hospital, county court house and two drugstores. One with a fountain. So.. now this: People say "Boy, those Newton E
