It Begins.... (2017 Fall Camp Thread)

Recommended Posts



I read that Beck has a foot fracture. Not sure about C. Brown. The Beck injury is devastating because of the Reese suspension. Thank goodness for the grad transfer. Brewer and G. Gray will have to see the field now.

 

 

Doc Longhorn can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think foot fractures aren't nearly as serious as breaking other limbs. I've had one myself and was back in no time. This will be weeks, not months.

 

You miss Beck because of course he's good and he's experienced. But we should be fine. You game plan with what you've got. Plus, we have some athletes who can play multiple positions. I'm sure Herman will move someone over for depth. Who knows, maybe we stumble onto a TE. Too bad we didn't try one of our QBs there last year. lol

Fairly certain Beck has injured his foot before, I think a fracture. These can have delayed healing and are a risk to derail his season.

I have an idea.... Flex Lil Jordan and let him create havoc on defenses.

I'm not sure the TE position is that important in today's college football unless you have one who is a true dual threat, receiving and blocking.  Seems like opposing defenses and coordinators wouldn't have difficulty matching up if your personnel package has TE's who are adept at only one skill.  An offense can surprise you from time to time, ex. goal line situation, but I think if you have to be thin at one position, TE would be the one I would choose if I had to.  Hook' em.

It was a non-contact drill injury to his previously injured foot per BC and he could require another surgery. If so, probably out for 2017. Let's hope Kendall Moore can play!

If the previous injury was a fracture and the same fracture has broken again it could actually be the end of his career.

Even with surgery sometimes those screws just won't hold.

if we are going to keep posting pictures of our equipment room on social media then we need to get herman to renovate that room, otherwise we need to have all pictures taken of the locker room. That room looks like its from the 90's.

 

 Peyton Manning's wardrobe looks like it's from the 90's hahahahah

Does anyone else get the feeling Herman is BSing us in regards to the QB battle. Unless Ehlinger is a step above Buechele in the competition, why would you start a true freshman? Everything Herman is saying seems to fly in the face of "sources" stating that Buechele is the most accurate passer Herman has ever coached.

Yes he is just blowing smoke. But at the same time competition is pushing Sam. He won't be there yet though. Boo will be named the starter after this weekends scrimmage. Just something psychological Herman does. My 2 cents

    • RES SCHEDULE STANDINGS RANKINGS         LOG IN           Friday Five: Five teams not named Alabama or Clemson who have a realistic shot to win the national title If the Crimson Tide or the Tigers don't win the College Football Playoff, here's five teams who could by Tom Fornelli  @TomFornelli 3 hrs ago • 5 min   Over the summer, I wrote about the 16 teams that can realistically win a national title. The premise of the post that while every team technically starts the season with the same chance, the reality is much different. Now, only a few weeks into the season, that list of 16 has been culled a bit. It hasn't stopped anybody from asking me a familiar question, though. Whether on radio, podcasts or social media, I've been asked multiple times some variation of "which team is most likely to win the national title if it isn't Alabama or Clemson?" Well, for this week's Friday Five, I'm going to answer the question, though I doubt it will stop anybody from asking me. There's still a very long way to go in the season, but based on what we've all seen so far, these are the five teams I would give the best odds to right now. 5. Texas: Sometimes I wish I called this feature Friday Four instead of Friday Five because it's not always easy coming up with a fifth entry for the list. This was one of those times. I was going back-and-forth between Texas and all the honorable mentions listed below and ultimately decided on Texas for a couple of reasons. First of all, Texas is a talented team, and you need talent to win national titles. In 247Sports's team talent rankings, the Longhorns rank 7th in the country, ahead of the honorable mentions. More than that, however, Texas has an "easier" path to the College Football Playoff. There's only one obstacle in its way in the Big 12, and it's named Oklahoma. Now, it won't be easy to beat Oklahoma twice in the same season, but it's not impossible. Meanwhile, Auburn might be the third or fourth-best team in its own division. Michigan hasn't beaten Ohio State since 2011. Penn State has to get through Ohio State as well. Notre Dame can get to the playoff, but it has to be perfect to do so, and that's very hard to do. Then there's Oregon, which might be the best team in the Pac-12, but being the best team in the Pac-12 doesn't seem to mean much to those who decide which teams get in. So Texas gets this fifth spot in a bit of a tie-breaker. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/friday-five-five-teams-not-named-alabama-or-clemson-who-have-a-realistic-shot-to-win-the-national-title/
    • Getting a four star WR recruit is the cake. Taking him away from the aggies is the icing. 
    • I'm sure aggy is saying right now "He isn't $ec good enough, don't want"
