  1. I don’t know why this thread is still going but oh well. Having never witnessed the “bloody Tuesday” practice I’m totally speculating but I shall speculate nonetheless. Nowadays QB’s wear little shirts in practice to remind people not to hit them. In the good old days if you were on the practice field you were open game. Nowadays we have charts by the urinal and mandates that players walk around with jugs of water to stay hydrated. No telling how many water breaks at practice. In the good old days you took a fistful of salt tabs before practices and you got ONE water break. You took a knee with your helmet on until it was your turn to get the ONE 6oz paper cup almost filled with water. You were lucky if there wasn’t a bug or a little dirt in it. Once you got it you went back, took a knee, and could take your helmet off and hold it while you sipped the most glorious water you’ve ever tasted bug and all because it was all you would get. I bet they don’t run through the chute, go a little bull in the ring session, or my all time favorite utilize “sic em dogs”. This was 2 or 3 guys who didn’t play much because they weren’t very talented but coach kept them around because they were mean SOB’s. They would spend their time standing close to coach so he could teach what he considered the most important life lesson. If the coach thought someone was not giving good effort, making too many mistakes, or just needed a gut check he would quietly say a players name to his little minions and they would take off like a torpedo, usually from behind or blind side, and knock the ever loving shit out of you. (That is the absolute truth) If they caught you off guard all you could hear while laying on the ground with your head ringing was “KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A SWIVEL!” Bloody Tuesday sounds really scary but I figure it’s not near as terrible as it sounds. It’s definitely not causing our players to get hurt on game days. My gosh it’s against the rules to spear (hit with the crown) today. Were raising a bunch of babies. That’s the problem
  2. We should be pushing our light ability to every CB recruit
  3. Defense played poorly, as we’ve been accustomed to seeing this year but opportunistic. The offense gave this game away. From play calls to player execution they sucked. Line was pathetic, Ingram...I guess he’s just not the player I thought. He brings nothing to the table. Duvernay had his head up his ass. He literally muffed the kickoff returns in every way imaginable. Eagles dropped a couple of big play, possible TD passes, I guess Collin Johnson played more than 5 or 6 snaps but that’s all I recall. He’s awfully big to disappear but he did. With all that said we will still run the table and rematch in Big 12 championship. It sucks because all we can do now is play spoiler.
  4. Duvernay has been a total shit show on returns. This whole game is awful.
  5. Do you know why it’s difficult to solve criminal cases in Oklahoma? Because DNA samples are useless.
  6. Ingram needs to get it together or our 3rd stringer QB is going to be our 1st string RB.
  7. I bet you are right but I’m sure there is some chop licking happening by our Offense as well, OU’s D is pitiful. PC or not this will be a Red River Shoot Out.
  8. I don’t care what order the RB’s are currently listed by the recruiting services. This kid is as good or better than Z Evans on the field and his mind set gives him a much higher ceiling. IMHO we’ve got the best back in the country headed our way.
  9. This kid is a beast! Feet and nasty disposition.
  10. I noticed Sterns was slow to get up the play before he went out. He was limping a little but seemed to try and walk it off. I love Brandon Jones and after the punt goof I could tell he didn’t want to get up from the ground. Nobody felt worse than he did at that moment. IF he is on the field to return another punt I guarantee he will never try that again. Ok St should have never gotten their offense on the field their last 3 possessions without us scoring. For a guy as aggressive as Herman is in the course of a game he gets too conservative when we have a lead in the 4th. That has to stop.
  11. At times we absolutely imposed our will on both sides of the LOS. That was good to see. Ingram ran well, the offense looked sharp until we “lost interest”, the last three times we had the ball it seemed coaches and players felt the game was over and went hyper conservative and sloppy. Our defense shut down their rushing offense and Wallace had 5 catches for 83 yards. That is impressive. A few nifty runs by Sanders was it. Our secondary looked better tonight than they have all year. Good win
  12. Salpointe has 1,125 students. They would be a large 4A in Texas (cutoff is 1,149). The team they played has 1,764 students.
  13. That’s true. Back in the dark ages when everyone ran the “wing T”, “wishbone”, or “veer” the 3 times QB attempted a forward pass and it was thrown in the general area of the receiver the coaches were pleased. The sole reason for throwing was to keep the defense honest. BTW I found one of your playing day pictures SHA
  14. So he was suspended, then kicked off the team and now he quit the team he was kicked off of? I can’t keep up. I heard he didn’t quit and so all of the other players quit and then all of the coaches quit. Then all of the players and coaches that quit started a new team and Evans asked if he could play on the new team and they said no. So Evans is still on the team but there are not any other players on his team and he doesn’t have any coaches. They say he really likes everyone on the team now and rarely has any incidents. Maybe he’s discovered a way to play for his teammates and do what’s best for himself at the same time. It’s the elusive win win scenario. I’m happy for the kid.
  15. Anyone know why we aren’t recruiting Garrett Hayes the o lineman from Athens Tx? He’s 6’5 300 and he can run
