    I gotta say talking about the other team cheating after you lose is lame. Did we cruise the grey area last year? Is that the only way to get a great class? No and no.

    Honestly Texas didn't do so bad at all. They just gotta keep improving and winning. Now imho the biggest winner in my eyes to sign with this class was Myron Warren which was huge.

    Well, here's where the staff earns their money. They have a month to put a good product on the field for a bowl game while continuing to look for uncommitted, juco and grad transfers players that fill the gaps. We still have a top 10 class, so not the end of the world, but not the end of the recruiting cycle either.

    For a little perspective, imagine being OU, a blue blood that's won the Big 12 about every year and produced the last two Heisman winners and their class is no better than ours. All is fine. jkw - just keep winning.

    We knew it would happen but Cain going to PSU stings because i know we thought we had him a FEW times. Oh well. This is where you buckle up and get back to work. I think he was genuinely interested, otherwise he wouldnt have communicated what he did a while back. Moving on though guys, We are now in the race for GLASS!!

    It seems to me that the people saying no way about Sanders (and Bru to some extent) are doing so from an emotional place whereas the people feeling like we have a decent shot are following the reporting. Even the reporting that says no way seems to be saying no way because that would be "shocking" not because of any scuttlebutt.

    It always amuses me when I read comments from men on this board about recruiting teenaged boys.
     
    Try to remember an absolute truth:
    Try to remember the one overwhelming thought (outside of food) that teenaged boys think about while trying to matriculate from high school.  And how that could come into play during the recruiting process.  The big boys don't need bagmen to recruit.  And the ones that howl the loudest about paying recruits are usually the ones that do.   Mostly intermediate and minor programs.  And mentally delusional misfits.  Anyone know one like this? :

    Just talked to my buddy . . . . I asked about Washington, says things are fine for now. He did not visit Mizzou and it appears he's standing firm against some pressure to stay local. They think he's going to stick.
    He went through the Washington thing like he was in a hurry to get to the next subject, which was Sanders/McCoy. The Sanders noise is real and Texas has felt confident for some time. He says that things have just meshed very well between Sanders and UT staff, particularly Drayton. Still some ways to endure this free-for-all thats being thrown his way, but they think he'll sign with us.
    McCoy ironically is a little more up in the air. I say ironically because I have long felt we were in a better position with McCoy than Sanders. Thats not necessarily the case. We need to survive the Helton visit and the pressure from friends who are already at USC or are going to USC. For now, we're still leading. USC has to show something's about to change. Maybe a name like Kingsbury is enough. Maybe not.
    Says Coker is having fun. Would not go further.
    Says the staff isn't really recruiting Marcel Brooks anymore. It was always a "let it play out and see what happens" thing. I asked because of a rumor I had heard.
    He gave me the name of our newest commit. You all can figure it out but he asked me to sit on it for now.

    The Glass / Katy negativity is weak minded to me. The tape is the tape and the offers are the offers. He's tough, sneaky fast, good lateral movement and vision, with good balance. He's not Kyle Porter. They were smart to show him busting tackles up front on his tape and not a bunch of mile wide holes. Plus everyone bitches about competition and then they get someone with competition and say but his o-line is too good! If we miss on Sanders, he and Brown are super solid takes and we hope for Evans next year.

    So when the intel said yes to all three, it was never "yes" to anyone.
    This is the strangeness of the Longhorn Nation. Good news or potential good news is rejected and we wait until it trends bad before we buy into it.
    We have been groomed to expect disappointment, even though we seldom really experience it. And even though the in-homes TH will have could change everything all over again in this cycle. 
    I'll wait and see how this plays out.

    If we could make Murray cry in the first half that would be good.

    I’m saying the kid is a life long USC fan in southern Cali with several ties to the program. This is recruiting and the straight forward logic doesn’t always apply. Bru is a savvy kid, but he’s still a kid and there is no doubt USC has been where his heart is for awhile. Texas has made it extremely difficult up to this point, but USC has always had the proximity on its side and has been the comfort pick.

    Yeah he isn’t going to trash a school in a public interview. What’s more important is the things being said behind the scenes, which are often things we or others can’t write.
