MAX WITTEK UPDATE

 

Former USC QB Max Wittek visited Hawaii last weekend and is said to have enjoyed the visit. Wittek is not close to a decision and he may still take visits to Louisville and TCU. We assume Virginia Tech is no longer an option since former Lake Travis and Texas Tech QB Michael Brewer announced he will transferring to VT.

CROSSFIRE Q&A

 

Q) Who do you see as our starting tight end this fall & how will they be used in our passing offense?

A) Louisville ran a double tight end set and I believe we will see it at Texas too. Louisville’s 1st string tight end caught 36 passes last year and the 2nd teamer caught 18 passes, so the you can bet we are going to see more use from the tight end position.

 

Other TE tidbits:

 

 

  • Greg Daniles will be primarily a blocking tight end and has shown decent receiving skills
  • Geoff Swaim will used in multiple sets as a blocker and receiver.
  • Blake Whiteley will be used as a receiving tight end until he can add some seize.
  • MJ McFarland is probably the most intimidating tight end but, has not shown the consistency in the blocking game to stay on the field. McFarland is a transfer candidate.

 

Q) First, who thinks it is a priority to recover our relationship with MBTF (I never had any problem with Mrs. Brown)?

A) I don’t anyone is thinking it’s a priority. It was just a question.

Second, why would they not be ready?

 

A) They were removed from office and they were not ready to leave. They both believe they were done wrong by Texas because they did not get to leave on their own terms. Sally has given all of her Texas clothing a way to a former staff member. There are hurt feelings that only time can heal.

 

Q) Third, why the sudden concerns about how people feel toward MBTF? People have their opinions about how things went down. If you want to change those opinions then give us substantive evidence as to why anybody that is not supportive of how MBTF conducted himself should reconsider. I am not asking for a recap of his accomplishments at Texas. I know them already.

A) I honestly have no concern on how people feel towards Mack Brown. You can’t change anyone’s opinion on Mack Brown. There are reasons why people like Mack Brown and there are reasons others dislike him. It is futile trying to convert either side. Both sides have their reasoning.

 

Q) Why should I give MBTF a break and why do you care?

A) I have never asked you to give Mack a break. I have moved on and have found it liberating to let the past go and concentrate on the new regime.

 

Q) My same question from last week. Give us some info on the possibility of LHN being picked up by Directv or Dish (my only two options) by the time football season rolls around or is that even on Patterson's to-do list right now.

A) It is a priority for Patterson, IMG and ESPN to get the LHN on one of your two options. At this time I don’t what the possibilities are. I guess we just found out how high of a priority it was. The LHN has now been inked by Dish Network. I would look for Directv to follow suit. ESPN packaging the LHN with the SEC Network no doubt assisted the LHN in getting this deal done.

 

Q) Who do you anticipate leaving the football program? Word is we need to free up 8 slots to reach scholarship limit of 85.

A) The staff has met with those that are better served playing football somewhere else. 8 would be a safe number to assume since some of kids are sitting on the fence. We are already down two with Scott & Moss being dismissed so, 6 more is well within reach. The problem is Texas has some very good talent sitting on the fence. The staff has been very supportive but some kids have not developed the discipline needed in order to play under the new regime. In the next few weeks, we all will have a more lucid picture of who is onboard going into spring ball.

 

Q) I've heard from various mathematical sources that Pie R squared. In my experience, pies are usually round. Can you please clear this conflict up for me? Squared or Round?

A) I would let the various mathematical sources that you have heard from clear this up for you & quit picking on me :)

 

Q) With the SEC Network going live in August, does that help or hurt the LHN chances of being picked up by the various carriers?

A) If the carrier is offering the LHN in the same package that carries the SEC Network, then it increases our chances to be picked up or included by various carriers.

 

Q) Why all the love for ex-USC QB Max Wittek? If he couldn't win the job at USC, why does anyone think he has a chance here?

A) The out of town girl is always looked upon as glamorous. I’m going to tell you right now, it is a position of need. If Ash goes down, we could be in a world of hurt.

 

Q) Confirm that the chances that we change the design of our uniforms, even for one game is zip, nunca, nada.

A) That is the one question I would have for Patterson. I used to believe that there is no way in the hell that Texas would consider changing the design. Now, with the trend of new designs shown by a majority of programs, I’m not so sure?

 

Q) A lot has been written recently about the new desire to increase the quality of stadiums versus the quantity of seating. i.e. more luxury boxes, in-stadium experiences, removing nose bleed sections, etc. Any of those discussions being had at UT? Patterson spoke at a sports club I attend and mentioned the enclosing of the south endzone, but nobody talked about anything else.

A) Patterson and the hired consultants are still in their assessment phase. There has been a lot of discussion on several projects but, not priority or schedule has been set.

 

Q) How have the beer sales gone, so far? Any problems? Or, are we on the way to $1 million revenues?

A) There have not been any problems. Did you notice the venues all the involved agencies are monitoring the alcohol use from? Womens Basketball, Baseball etc… Pretty calm crowds in general. The fact is, the venues they are generating their study off of, is in no way going to be the same atmosphere at a football game. However, we had to show we are doing our due diligence by acquiring data from TABC, APD and other agencies.

 

Q) In your last Xfire you and FoB discussed that Aggies are paying for players. I commented that saying the Ags are paying needs to stop unless there's something to back it up and got killed by other commenters.

A) No, what was discussed is that FOB had lunch with a former college coach and the subject came up that this is a topic of discussion with the Texas High School coaches.

 

Q) Our basketball entertainment is lame. Any work going on to change it? I would like to see the days most popular songs and the dance team freelancing. Lets try the professional bball entertainment mode just once and gauge the appeal.

A) All of the sporting venues are under evaluation. With Patterson’s history in the NBA, I would expect Texas to adopt some of the NBAs entertainment ideas.

 

Q) What is the status of Leroy Scott, is he on double secret probation or is he gone without comment from the new coaching staff?

A) As of right now, Leroy is off the team. Whether or not Coach Strong is going to give him an opportunity for reinstatement is yet to be seen.

 

Q) What is being shared with media and/or interested alumni about The Plan? WTF is Texas going to put on the field. I'm hearing the players playbooks are super secret. Does anyone outside the coaching staff and maybe some players have a clue what kind of O/D the Horns are going to use in 2014?

A) The plan is to compete for the B12 title in the first year. The staff believes they have enough talent to win every game they have on their schedule. Look for the defense to run a 3-3-5 stack and the offense to use pro multiple sets. Give the staff the spring to evaluate what talent they have to run a particular offense/defense.

 

Q) 1. mcphaul, are there any updates as per the "disney" contingent? Are there many changes / ideas forthcoming? are the "disney" staffer's touring the mighty confines of belmont hall? are they meeting with football management? what gives, upon this all important "game day" front leading into the next season?

A) Like I mentioned previously, all sporting venues are under evaluation.

 

2. mcphaul, we are all acutely aware that there is indeed a new "sheriff" in town in regards to the "texas" gridiron hierarchy. however my friend, whenever you approach your weekly interview as per "friend of bevo"... this time, dig deep! i mean, for some strange reason, lately i get the feeling that we are "barely scratching the surface of topics" whenever you speak with him. i mean think about it mcphaul.... in the past, "fob" was a "juggernaut" of information. and now a day's, it seems as though he is just "tip toeing through the tulips" or so to speak. "fob" should indeed be a bit more comfortable with the new regime to some degree darryl. tell him that he has us spoiled... and i'm sure that he may really decide to "bring the wood".

A) Give everyone time to get to know one another. Relationships on every level take time. The staff has been on the job for a short time but, yes, the FOB’s are making those introductions & building those relationships.

 

Q) Are there plans to rearrange basketball seating next year to get students closer and liven up the crowd at games?

A) It is being looked at but, no plans have been finalized, only thoughts and ideas.

 

Q) We've talked a lot about the new coaching staff. I'm interested in how that translates on the field like anyone else, but am curious as to what player on the team is going to benefit the most from some actual coaching and conditioning. I have my own thoughts, but would like to hear FOB's thoughts on this. Who springs forward above where we thought they were due to the improved coaching and conditioning?

A) The staff is counting on DT Hassan Ridgeway to step his game up along with DE’s Caleb Bluitt, Shiro Davis and Bryce Cottrel.

The offensive line is the other area Texas should see marked improvement. Stacy Searles did a wonderful job of rebuilding the roster with young depth. I know Coach Wickline is pleased with the talent he has to work with.

It is crucial that Kenny Estelle dedicates himself to school & football. At this time, the verdict is still out on Estelle.

CONVERSATION WITH FRIEND OF BEVO

Me: What’s going on?

 

FOB: Just got back from watching the baseball team take all three of their games in Houston this weekend.

 

Me: That was a great series for us. Talk about a confidence builder.

 

FOB: Yes, yes it was. Let me commend you on your city. We all have such a great time every time we come down here. Good Lord I must have put on ten pounds this weekend. Picking a place to eat in this town is always such a great treat. Back to baseball, this is a very gritty bunch. The pitching was very good but, the difference between this year’s club and last year's is: this team is finding a way of winning the close games. We did not win these types of games last year. That Peters kid threw a heck of a game.

 

Me: What has changed?

 

FOB: The boys were challenged this past off-season both mentally and physically on a level they have not been in the past.

 

Me: It seems to have paid off?

 

FOB: Accountability is good thing. Augie will be the first tell you he himself he had to dust up (prepare) differently this year.

 

Me: I have heard this could be Augie’s last year. Any truth to that?

 

FOB: It has definitely been discussed. Honestly neither party is sure which way it could go right now.

 

Me: Let’s talk about basketball.

 

FOB: What do you have?

 

Me: I heard no matter what happens the rest of the season that a decision has been made to retain Coach Barnes next season.

 

FOB: The Myles Turner camp has asked for assurances that Rick Barns and Jai Lucus will be coaching at Texas next year. Texas has assured them that should not be a concern. Read into that what you will.

 

Me: With the addition of Turner and literally the whole team returning next season gives Texas Hoops fans every reason to believe we can snap Kansas’ stronghold on the B12 title.

 

FOB: If Barnes lands Turner, Texas will undoubtedly have one of the saltiest front courts in college basketball.

 

Me: Not to mention Isaiah & Felix with another year under their belt.

 

FOB: Barnes should be able to make some serious noise this year and next with that roster.

 

Me: Let’s get back to football.

 

FOB: What ya got?

 

Me: Why isn’t Texas getting the top blue-chips to visit for our Junior Days?

 

FOB: There are different reasons for different kids. It is track season so, that has limited some kids from making the trip. Some others can’t find the transportation and some want to be shown more love that includes an offer before they visit.

 

Me: I guess I was of the impression that kids would line up to visit Texas and meet the new staff.

 

FOB: The ones that have, certainly have been impressed. More importantly, the parents are starting to see what Coach Strong is all about. JW Ketchum’s mom‘s certainly had a lot of praise for a Coach Strong and the changes as did Darron Daniels' father. Once recruit parents start getting the word out, you are going to see more recruits and their parents making the trip to Austin.

 

Me: Should we be concerned?

 

FOB: Not yet and I will tell you why. Let Strong get a year under his belt, a season he can point to that shows the recruits, parents and Texas HS Football coaches that he and his staff are on the right track.

I hate to bring up Coach Brown again but, this program become extremely stale on all fronts. Coach Brown's lack of leadership, the assistant coaches jockeying for position and disagreeing about personnel, no accountability amongst the players, really created a very unhealthy culture at Texas. Coach Strong is not popular enough on the national level or in the state of Texas to overcome the damage that was done in the last four years in a couple of months.

 

Me: So, he has his work cut out for him?

 

FOB: Think about all the different issues Charlie has had to address in the last two months alone:

 

 

  1. Changing Jobs
  2. Hiring a staff
  3. Moving his family
  4. Retaining the 2014 class
  5. Implementing a new culture with rules & accountability
  6. Getting to know his players
  7. Traveling and introducing he and his staff to all the HS coaches across this big state
  8. Evaluating next year’s recruits and that mean nationwide
  9. Getting ready for the his first spring practices

 

Charlie has more on his plate than most but has continued to address each area with the utmost confidence.

 

Me: I have had several people that have recently visited Bellmont tell me that the mood is somber.

 

FOB: I don’t get that feel at all. That sounds like someone’s personal feelings. Look, there is definitely an "all business" attitude on the Forty now and with evaluations being conducted in just about every area, there is going to be tension in the air.

 

Me: Back to recruiting. We did not have one commitment from last weekend’s Junior Day.

 

FOB: We only offered four kids and two of those are for the 2016 class. One area I am going to point out again is this: the OOS recruiting is not like anything we have ever seen at Texas before. We have 40 plus in state offers out and 20 plus out of state offers out and that out of state offers continue to be extended every week.

 

Me: Do you think that is a good thing?

 

FOB: I think it is a necessary to go out of state at this time. Until Strong and staff have a season to sell and time to build those relationships, Texas is darn lucky this staff has out of state contacts & relationships to draw from.

Texas could well indeed end up with 10 out of state commitments in next year' class.

 

Me: Wow that is a lot for Texas.

 

FOB: That number should subside once Coach Strong and staff has a year under their belt or it might not. Charlie may well put Texas on the national map. I do know this, he is not scared to go after ANY kid.

 

Me: That’s all I got for now. Appreciate the time as always!

 

FOB: You betcha.

I find it unbelievable hypocritical of McPhaul saying move on when he reported so much unsubstantiated Mack bashing.

 

This is a rather civil site and almost every one of us could substantiate some Mack bashing for you if it would help you feel better.

 

A number of individuals feel, over the past four years, Mack failed to deliver at the highest level of his professional, even though he continued to get compensated at the highest level of his profession. We all saw the BYU game. We also saw the second half of the Ole Miss game, how the team was outcoached in every aspect of the game against Okie Lite and how we were really never in the game against Baylor after they made their adjustments. Oregon totally outclassed us in the bowl game. We don't need to rehash those failures forever. I agree it's time for us to move on.

 

Mack and Sally may well feel they deserved to go out on their terms. Not too many others agree. The fanbase has disengaged with the program to such a degree it has caused a substantive issue we need to deal with. They haven't disengaged because we failed Mack by not allowing him to go out on his terms. They disengaged because Mack failed to deliver.

 

McPhaul and I have openly been on different sides of issues and I have no problem discussing such issues with him when they arise. My ability to do so is one of the reasons I have a blast on this site. I know when I pick a debate with someone over here i will get debate. However, if you re-read McPhaul's comments, he didn't say "move on." He said he has moved on and he finds it liberating to have done so. His having let the past go doesn't mean he can't speak of the retained angst of others. His weekly piece is to tell you what he is hearing and what others are saying. If people are still expressing frustration, he is pretty much obligated to say so.

 

I don't find it hypocritical in the least for McPhaul to say he has moved on, but to also discuss how others haven't. I anticipate a lot of the same for a long time. Mack is going to be a divisive figure within the program until Mack figures out a way to mend fences. I can think of a number of ways he could come back to the program and be a leader in the UT community. I don't think Mack can, though. Over the last four years, Mack got paid well over $20 million and delivered us one of our few losing seasons, a disengaged fanbase, a program that was going nowhere before Coach Strong took over and a distraction that we are talking about at this very moment. not the record one uses to dictate their terms on walking out the door.

 

McPhaul has moved on. A lot of us aren't as gracious. There is no hypocrisy in his statement. None at all.

Short-term, I don't have a problem with Coach Strong filling needs with OOS kids. Long-term, I believe it can adversely effect his relationships with THSFB coaches if we're bringing in 10+ OOS players every year. Ideally, I'd like to see the number at 6 or fewer.

 

We should have enough talented kids at most positions every year. Just my opinion.

I don't hate Mack like some might. But I do find it inexcusably incredible that he and Sally truly believed that he should have been able to go out on his terms when he's had four overall poor seasons in a row. It's ultra indicative of his program being run with an entitlement, relatively soft mentality. When the HC feels he should be bullet proof regardless of weak on field performances time and again, it's no surprise that he often gave players preference due to "having bled for the program" even when said players were woefully underperforming.

 

Really a pretty sad excuse for a football coach during his last several years, and he certainly had lost all credit to call his shots on when to step down. I'm just glad someone else enforced his departure, as the idea of him hanging around until he beat DKR's win record was a travesty that didn't happen, thankfully.

 

Mack did many good, some wonderful, things for UT, but his time had more than clearly past. That he wasn't fired after the '12 OU game was grace enough, all considering

I have to think there is more to the story on MJ McFarland. . .I don't care if he cannot block a lick. . . he's a mis match in the "split TE" role. . .not using him last year was foolish . .again .. unless there is something else. . . .think ???? kid with aggie g/f who was on their equestrian team, he transfered to Zona, vs OU in 2008. . ..he abused them. . .

 

While I very much respect what Mack did in returning TEXAS to it's glory. . .he is gone and all hail the new king. . . he made a fortune. . .he let it get away. . .he got 4 years to fix it. ..he didn't. . .I don't see an issue. . . nor do I feel sorry for Sally .. . .

Agree with you. It's more difficult to attract OOS kids due to distance but wherever UT can get talented kids is fine by me. It's been awhile since I looked it up but Texas has a population of 26 million or so with whites and blacks making up about 15 million. (Yea, a bit prejudiced but Hispanics in general don't have the football body type.) The population of the USA is a bit more than 300 million so we have a bit below 10% of the total US population. Anyway, with this large population, we ought to be able to find top athletes just in our State where UT has a recruiting advantage. That said, I do have my theory that many Texas high school players head to the college game closer to their full potential than kids in many other states that don't have the money/quality of many of Texas' high school programs. So, having a borader recruiting area may actually help.

Q) I've heard from various mathematical sources that Pie R squared. In my experience, pies are usually round. Can you please clear this conflict up for me? Squared or Round?

A) I would let the various mathematical sources that you have heard from clear this up for you & quit picking on me

================================

 

Thanks for making me dig deeper into this perplexing issue. It turns out that Pi r squared is the formula for finding the area of a CIRCLE. Thus pies are, in fact, round. The pi r squared thing is just a way of determining the size of the "round pies".

I find it unbelievable hypocritical of McPhaul saying move on when he reported so much unsubstantiated Mack bashing.

 

Hello Tulsa,

 

I understand that the diehard Mack Brown supporters prefer to call the reports unsubstantiated. This a natural reaction when a coach you respect is replaced against his will. I can already see it is a topic that both sides are not ready to let go. IMO, this prevents the fanbase from uniting. That is why "I" chose to move on.

 

Sometimes it behooves me to re-read topics that initially get under my skin. This practice enables me to remove the emotion from my initial reaction.

 

Just to be clear I have copied and pasted the part of Crossfire where you accused me of being hypocritical. As you can see it appears your emotions got the best of you. It happens to the best of us.

A) I have never asked you to give Mack a break. I have moved on and have found it liberating to let the past go and concentrate on the new regime.
