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.

    • So far today I have not received the error message I had been receiving. I also have not received the pics of the Austin shindig I was promised. 🙂
    • Every coach in their district ruled in favor of the kids to play. Doesn't seem very shady to me. This stuff literally happens all the time. I also said in a previous thread when the WR aggy commit for Tomball was ruled ineligible, the UIL constantly rules players eligible or ineligible all the time. The only time yall hear about it is with a high profile recruit (like wr for aggy) or some other reason (briles). Nothing to see here except click bait, and I'm not a briles supporter.  
    • We're still working on it!  We've tested a bunch of things and still have some more to go.  Thanks for your patience! The forum should be ok now - please let us know if you experience any issues on the boards too.
    • Still an issue... Still gobbling up battery power...
    • Here's an updated story. IMHO, seems a tad shady. Thoughts? https://www.dallasnews.com/high-school-sports/football/2019/09/18/two-mount-vernon-players-coached-by-former-baylor-coach-art-briles-ruled-eligible-to-play-at-dec-hearing/
