  1. A&M has done well with some of the in state elite and has 3 of the top 5 in the 247 composite and could have 4/5 with Evans. After that, you have to go all the way down to number 37 in state for their next commit. Texas has 12 (13 with Collins) between number 5 and 37. So, while A&M hit on some elite players, the top to bottom quality isn't quite the same. We would love to have Jaylon Jones and Demas but I don't think any Longhorn is worried about replacing Evans with Bijan or having Card and Jackson at QB instead of Haynes King. I agree with the article, No, Texas isn't worried about A&M in recruiting.
  2. I wouldn't even say that. Looking at the transcript, it was a leading question regarding there not being AC. He did not confirm nor deny that but did mention he was warned about it by La Tech. We now know that what he was warned about was it getting a little warm despite the AC so bring some extra. It is really the media that is full of it. They took a leading question and a poorly worded response and wrote about it like fact.
  3. Here is the transcript from the press conference that started all this mess. I'll say that it was a poorly worded/leading question with a slightly poorly worded response followed by a lot of crappy journalism that led to a firestorm of stories that really amount to discuss an A/C problem most of us deal with in the summer. Q. Can you talk about any hydration problem you had Saturday? Rumors were running around that there was no air conditioning in the dressing room. Can you set stuff straight? ED ORGERON: First of all, I called Louisiana Tech, and they told us about it. So we did some things in the dressing room that were better. It wasn't great, but it was better. At least we had air in there. They didn't have air. We had some blowers in there. I don't think that caused as much as going out there and having to play 93 plays on defense. I think that had a lot to do with it. Although it was hot, I thought -- I think the humidity was like 23 percent. It wasn't like Louisiana. But our guys did cramp up in the second half. We talked about it as a staff that we need to get some IVs, more IVs at halftime. Didn't seem like nobody needed one at that time, but to prevent that, I think that more guys will get IVs at halftime, obviously with the doctor's approval.
  4. Case close thankfully. I posted elsewhere about this. And to be fair Coach O never stated the AC wasn't working. He was asked in his Monday conference about the heat and rumors that AC wasn't working. He replied with 'we were warned about it by La Tech, brought our own units, etc...' His response didn't dispel the rumors but also didn't confirm. Seems like he was told that the locker room would get a little warm (much like my house being 80 degrees despite AC set to 74).
  5. I think we may be done at LB. Would gladly welcome a flip from Josh White but we are not actively pursuing any LBs that we have a chance with. We seem somewhat thin at the position currently but have a lot of young guys who will be coming up through the system in the next few years. Probably a few that redshirt this year so we will have plenty of options going forward.
  6. We are in New Orleans where we have pretty consistent water issues. I'm thinking about having the gutters drain mostly towards the front of the property that is clearly graded towards the street in front of the house.
  7. @Sirhornsalot what is your advice for a lawn that is holding water after rain? We went by our new house after a rain storm and noted that the backyard was holding water in several spots. We are surrounded by neighbors on all sides back there so can't really drain it away from the backyard (unless we redirected towards our house). There is a strip of concrete back there (no idea why) that we plan to remove and we will add gutters to the house.
  8. Transferred to Trinity Valley CC and is now at Syracuse https://www.rotoworld.com/college-football/nfl-draft/player/39350/reggie-hemphill-mapps
  9. @TexCoyote watch for Jerrin Thompson to potentially drop.
  10. I wish it wasn't but seems the Foster info was off. Where did you hear that?
  11. Saw that. Some other media members have been mentioning it too. What's the thought on Stone vs. Milroe. Stone looks quite incredible on tape IMO, but I've heard whispers of behind the scene type of things. Milroe is great is in his own right, and may even be a better fit for our offense.
  12. Any updates on Jalen Milroe recruitment? Sounds like things are picking up there.
  13. It was very frustrating to watch games that we didn't easily put away (Kansas, Tulsa) or hold on to big leads we built against top competition (OU, Georgia). In some cases it came down to poor execution and silly mistakes that let these teams keep games close. To a degree, particularly OU and Georgia, we shifted strategy to try and run down the clock and we didn't execute well on offense or defense. With continued improvement by the team overall, I think we perform better in these situations and the computer models will probably like us better. Not that computer models matter all that much, winning matters the most, but they do often go hand in hand.
  14. I agree. It's impossible for a computer algorithm to be created that can truly assess a football team. Too many factors in play. Texas did not have a season that looks good statistically but we know from watching it was a very good season (with some unfortunate hiccups). All season, FPI had us underrated so it is not surprising that the predictions for next year (which use last years results) have us underrated.
