    The fact of the matter is we don’t have anyone in Austin that can cover practices. I’m in law school in Lubbock, Daniel is in Maryland, and Jameson is on the baseball beat. We apologize about that, but it’s just been rough this year.

    Brainiacs saying Demani Richardson and his family will visit Texas after the aggy OV despite Jimbo's no-visit policy.  They are saying it'll definitely happen this time.  Buckle up folks, recruiting is about to get crazy all around.

    Yesterday, I was visiting with one of my customers. This one lives in Fairview (next to McKinney). She has a big house on a large, large lot that is heavily wooded. I enjoy visiting with her and touring her gardens.
    Anyway, I got tickled yesterday when talking with her. She said "you know I'm the only one in our house who calls you Mark. Everybody else calls you Sirhornsalot."
    LOL

    Well, yes and no. They're useless to you and me in general. But they do provide a clear indication of where a recruitment is.
    I'd 100 times more want a silent commit than one that chose not to.
    When you get right down to it, a commit in itself is worthless in regards to whether a kid comes to your school or not. LSU Holla!

    Friends and neighbor's, it's a long way to NSD, but the Longhorn recruiting witches are doing their magic.  And they are doing it in the face of fierce competition from aggy and OU.  Typically new coaches have an edge over "older" coaches.  But Jimmy and what's his name from OU are finding out who the real boss is.  OU, however, is doing well OOS and needs an eye kept on them.  Aggy?  Well, meh.  Also, everyone should know there is serious negative recruiting being thrown at the Horns.  That's good, that means we are winning and negative recruiting is the last resort of a loser.
    After watching Mack, Charlie and Tom, I have an opinion of their modes of recruiting.
    Mack - Literally a "daddy" figure and the friend of the family.  Probably one of the best salesmen I have ever seen.
    Charlie - Related well to the kids.  They just flat liked HIM.
    Tom - The most tireless worker and detail oriented person I have ever seen.  He covers every minute detail and leaves nothing to chance.  NOTHING.
    For those wondering what the teenaged boys will do in the coming months - be excited.  Also, be observant.  When Herman gets his clutches on them in their OV's, the game is mostly over.  Two of my connected friends said they have never seen anything like his ability to close a kid (particularly his family), once he gets them on campus.  I don't know about his Mensa rating, but the man is INTELLIGENT and he knows what the hell he is doing - completely.  The only time something gets screwed up is when something out of his control happens - like with an underling.  And it won't happen again if he has anything to do with it.
    So, friends, the Longhorn football program is in good hands - I promise you.  And Del Conti was just icing on the cake.  We gonna be good - real good.
    And this recruiting class will be awesome - I promise you that as well.
    Amirite, Daniel?

    No. Her name will not be in my book. She wasn't a part of the story and the book does not look this far into the future.
    The book more or less ends at the end of the '83 season.
    I am told the Supt. will be fielding a FOIA request soon. A friend of mine who is ex-law enforcement intends to file it. Apparently and allegedly, Supt intervened in a case at the Jr High where a coaching assistant/trainee was fired for having an improper relationship with a student. Problem is, she did not notify law enforcement or involve them at all. 
    She's not the sharpest tool in the shed, but she is very much a tool.

    It’s been awhile. But I’m here to say I’ve put in Texas picks for Kenyatta Watson and Nana Osafo-Mensah. I think Texas is in a solid position to hit the Fighting Irish with a double whammy.

    I’ve been trying to hold out on CB picks on him and Watson until we see how things go with OVs, but the buzz for both is positive for Texas.

    Marvelous Marv reacted to echeese in My latest take on Da Boys Draft in 2 weeks.   
    Per all the rumor mills, gadflies and pundits, seems Dallas is very serious about taking an OG in the 1st 2 rounds. Personally I think 19 is too high for any of the OLs but that doesn't mean others will not be interested in moving up.

    Would either Pittsburg or NE switch 1st and give up their 2nd for Mason Rudolph? (not sure Lamar Jackson slides this far but if he does, this is even more likely)

    Or NE covets an OT and Conner Williams might still be there.

    Even dropping down to trade with Denver and add their 3rd and 4th (all those work value chart wise).

    14 1st round talents but 60-70 2nd/3rd round types.

    So projecting a trade with Pittsburg who likes the big strong armed QB to learn under Big Ben.

    Keep in mind this draft is not just about 2018 but 2018-2021.

    Dallas' needs in no order:

    1 Tech
    LBs (2)
    S
    TE
    OG
    WR
    Edge
    RB change of pace type
    JJ wants a young QB to groom as well.

    PS, used the handy dandy FanSpeak mock draft simulator. Some of the player evaluations are either way too high or too low but used the composite feature.   https://fanspeak.com/ontheclock/draft.php

    Dallas goes to 28 and takes Will Hernandez who steps onto the field in Frisco as the LG 1

    With 2 picks now in the 2nd, Dallas takes Derrick Nnadi, 1 Tech/DT FSU then with Pitts' 2nd, they take Safety Justin Reid Stanford.

    Potentially 3 1st year starters. And frankly not opposed to Dallas taking a 2019 2nd + something to trade into this years 2nd round (or same thing in the 3rd) to add more talent in the Top 100 range.

    3rd round is Hayden Hurst, have to get Whitten's replacement ready.

    2 picks in the 4th, WR Donte Pettis UDub. Kid has great moves with the ball in his hands (All American punt returner) great hands and route running, very Dak friendly guy. It he's gone Chark LSU.

    Next 4th is Fred Wagner of BYU, very athletic, hybrid SS/OLB.

    5th round: Shaqueem Griffin, UCF. Another OLB with ridiculous athletics though only 1 hand. 

    Keep in mind that after round 3, you are drafting STs guys and players to be developed. Both Wagern and Griffin fit the mold of what Dallas likes in their LBs.

    With 3 picks in the 6th round, Dallas can target some lesser needs

    CB Troy Brown Bama If he doesn't fall to the 6th, Rashaud Gaulden CB Tenn

    RB Ito Smith South Miss, many like Hines of NCSt but Smith bigger guy with very similar skills

    QB Chase Litton Marshall, big strong arm, very accurate low INT/TD ratio.

    7th round pick up a OT who can play guard, Cole Madison Wazzu.
