Wasn’t IT the ones that said their info was “watermarked” and said they could tell which user was sharing it?  I believe the writer Jesus S said that

Jesus S is a friend of mine and no they don't do that. Sometimes they'll let a rumor like that float around just to discourage the practice.

He was there when they didn’t charge.  

Actually, IT has always charged. Jesus S (Kevin) was previously with Barking Carnival, back when ScipioTex was part of the team. BC was free, may still be. ScipioTex used to pen some humdingers. They had a good team, IMO.

Kevin went to IT when Clendon (is that the owner's name) made a deal to get him on staff.

I agree with whomever said IT was better than OB or 24/7. IT has depth to their coverage that 247 hasn't been able to duplicate, although I do like Mike Roach a lot over at 24/7. Brainiacs is a great info place, but not a community like the above three sites. So it's a different animal but a very accurate one. I can't recall the last time they were wrong. They were the ones who stuck with their pick of Bijan to Texas, despite the three other sites going into a OSU frenzy for three weeks.

Was the BC site called recruiticosm or something like that?!

i do remember them telling that on IT that their stuff was watermarked and that if folks posted it elsewhere they’d be banned from the site.  This was 7-8 years ago I guess.  I’d just go to Shaggybevo and read every report as it was posted there by folks

That sounds familiar, could be.

"Lacks shake in the hole ... decent vision to get to space ... not a natural RB" surprising anti - cool aid from those guys on Wittingham. We've led to believe he had all those things.

Thought the same thing when I read that statement. Everyone has been drooling over him. Im going to stick with the people that’s saying he is a badass

I'm going to assume that we are talking about Whittington since there is no one named Wittingham on the roster :)

It's also ridiculous and a little embarrassing to post such comments about a guy they / we have never seen in pads (who's never played RB before) after the first practice. That goes for the good and the bad I guess so maybe it's a wash. But to declare whether he's natural or not when he's never had the chance to feel out the position and learn with live bullets coming at him is silly.

He did play some RB at Cuero. They used him in a variety of ways.

He did pretty well in state championship from the wildcat position.

Paraphrased practice notes 

– Jordan Whittington scores a long TD almost every day.

– Devurney is very fast when catching the ball in stride.

– Jake Smith is fast and he's having to adjust to defenders who are also fast.

– Dele showed up in great shape, dropped some weight and now moves much better. Staff is thrilled.

– Growing optimism in the OL. Better than last year's already.

    • 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"
    • So Give me a low down? How good is this kid etc? Follow Texas recruiting via boards and never heard his name till now lol. Nice!
