  1. Since the 2023 Recruiting thread is off the main page, I'll put this here. For all of y'all that voiced your doubts about Trevor Goosby, and I won't name names, he has blossomed. Last year he was 6'6" and weighed in the high 240's, threw a shot put in the mid 40's. This spring he is 6'7.5" and 285. Threw a shot put 57'. Flood knows what he's looking for. He did it at Alabama and now Texas. All this is per Gerry Hamilton.

  2. If this is true, and I have no reason not to believe SHA on this, then I just gained a crap ton of respect for RT. I know he is talented, but Terry is trying to build a team and players have to earn the right to play. As a former HS coach, I never recruited, I would always start every season with one msg, "Playing time is earned, not given. It is a privilege to play and not a right.". Then I feed them runny eggs and make them pee in cup so I can talk about proper hydration. Note: I'm 100% joking on the last sentence for those of you that take things literally.

  3. TFB today reiterated their claim that Texas has 10-12 silent commits who will join this class during June. They said in just over 30 days, we'll have those commits. The secondary haul, they said, will be tops in the country. Our class will be ranked in the top 10 at that point.

  4. Or if he had followed Del Conte’s orders that all teams will remain on the field for the playing of the Eyes of Texas……he would probably still be here.

  5. I think this season, a Big 12 title is expected. Anything less than that is below grade. We have the most talented roster in the conference with tons of experience too. I don't know or care about CFP or bowls. I just want to win the conference and let the rest play out.

  6. Perhaps. Perhaps Urban is trying to set up Sark. Personally I don't buy anything Urban says.

  10. On3 is holding a recruiting event in Nashville this week. Hamilton of IT says there is talk up there that Manning is making a pretty good recruiting pitch to five-star WR Ryan Wingo of St. Louis, MO about life on and off the field in Austin. His official to Texas is on June 17th. https://247sports.com/Player/Ryan-Wingo-46101905/

  12. For some clarification on this, it looks like Sark hired THREE guys as special assistants; one for each unit. Saadat from Portland State for defense. DeCamillis from the Rams for special teams. OrangeBloods saying former Wisconsin coach, Chryst, will be for offense.

  14. After the review, Texas wins 7-3. Tied with West Virginia for the conference title. Will need to know if it's a 3 way tied for not.

  15. With the win, 2 games back of WVU and still 1 back of OSU. Lowest finish now 5th in the conference and 1st still in play. RPI now up to 25th. Another win this weekend would put us in the top 20 in RPI, which is what is predicted here. https://www.warrennolan.com/baseball/2023/team-sheet-predict?team=Texas I don't know what a sweep would do for our RPI but it could put us in the top 16.

  16. I also hate the "we suck until we don't" take, its lazy. I do think relevant history needs to be taken into account as well as the context of this team and this season. I am thinking we go 10-2 and win the Big 12. With the upside of 12-0 and downside of 9-3. I have us losing to Bama and an unknown. Context of the team: I think we will be a better team than last year (more talent infused into the team, combined with a year more experience at most positions), particularly with Quinn having a year of starting under his belt and by all accounts looks improved. Context of the past: Sark's in game coaching I believe has improved from year 1 to year 2, we have seen a team prepared better for road games and we have looked better in second halves. That being said we still did blow some second half leads, so Sark still needs to figure some things out with regards to in game adjustments. I believe as he has more of "his guys" in place and a QB with experience it opens up his playbook more and therefore more second half adjustment can be made. We have seen win totals rise and losses were close, so I think we have reason to believe in the upward trajectory with some pause before saying everything is figured out and we will perform to our talent level. Context of the year: We will field the most talent every game except against Bama and the Big 12 in general is meant to be down, but this year is our last year in the Big 12. We will have a target on our back every single week (more so than we always do) to send us off with a goodbye loss. We may get a little bit of unfavourable treatment from the refs. I think teams will throw the kitchen sink at us and be willing to take unconventional approaches like Techs go for it on every 4th down last year to knock us off. Between the unanswered coaching concerns and the context of the year. I think we will drop a game we are favoured in, but the team still accomplishes big things and we leave our stamp on the Big 12 with the championship in our final year.

  17. Notes from TFB today: 1. There are several spots at several positions that are already filled in this class, but have not announced. Apparently, the UT staff wanted to create momentum in June, so they asked them to wait. 2. They mentioned Parker Livingstone penciled into one of the WR spots. Texas is hard after Dubose (SA) and Gekyle Baker and in the thick of it with Micah Hudson. Tech feels very good at this time as far as their positioning with Hudson. Hudson's dad played for Tech. 3. Expects Duncanville's January to be in this class. Things have picked back up with Zina Umeozulu. They think Cruz and Uini are in the class already. TEAM STUFF 1. Staff is smitten with what they have in Anthony Hill and Liona Leaf. Lefau has a bright future in front of him. 2. This may be Byron Murphy's last season. 3. Thinks Malik Murphy transferring will come down to who wins the job next spring. 4. Grad transfers don't have the April 30th deadline like other players, with regard to the portal. They said keep that in mind. 5. Malik Muhammad improved every single practice. He will see much time next year.

  19. One thing I read yesterday had Texas-Texas A$M as the annual conference matchup for both teams. That was upsetting as I don't care about beating aggy near as much as I care about beating OU.

  20. Baker plans on getting back to Texas before making a decision, and had this to say: “Offensive line play, development, the coaching staff. They have Kelvin Banks, Devon Campbell, a couple five-stars from the 2022 class that are all great people. Coach Flood is a guy for sure who has been down from ‘Bama and coached a ton of guys. That’s something I didn’t really know until I got down there.”

  21. I guess I no longer have a dog in this fight, but my God, what about 1-11 made this place appealing? CU doesn't do squat in anything. Yeah, there is Sanders. One guy who really hasn't proven he can coach, only that he can recruit. I hope he has success but don't figure he'll be there long. I suppose the time zone thing is a thing, but you're adding a bunch of meh schools to achieve that. That really doesn't help them cut into the SEC share and dominance. I'd rather have a conference with 8 schools that are competitive year-in, year-out, than have a collection of meh.

    The 10-12 Silents . . .

    FWIW. Sark and most coaches at big time football schools view high school recruiting and their development as the lifeline of the program. The portal is viewed as a vehicle to fill holes, and grab a few high level guys that shake loose from other programs. I think for Texas ,high school recruiting is only marginally less important because of the portal.

  30. Yea, until proven otherwise, the current Texas roster is not on the same level as the 2005 roster. I mean we are talking about a team that had 32 players appear in an NFL game and had 17 of 22 starters from the national championship game go on to the NFL. https://www.statesman.com/story/news/2012/09/01/2005-title-team-helped-ut-become-one-of-nfls-top-college-football-factories/9851266007/#:~:text=In fact%2C a closer inspection,went on to the NFL.

  31. Give Mack some credit for bringing in the kids he did in the early 2000 time period. The 2005 NC team was stacked with talent on both sides of the ball. Then he got lazy (he admitted that) and after losing to Bama tried to change his team on the fly which started his downfall here at Texas.

  32. I believe what @Sirhornsalotis trying to state is that he's already shown what he can do in big games (i.e. the biggest) so if he's done it before, more than likely he can do it again.

  33. Sark can damn sure recruit better. Sark DOES need to win the Big 12 this year. Toms tenure had run its course, it was time to move on. I’m hoping for better results with Sark

  34. Penciling in a loss to ou is tough for me to do. I mean, come on. 49-0 to losing in just a year, with our roster being better? We probably won't score 49 points but we will win by at least two TDs.

  37. A chance at a great season absolutely factors into it, but we've seen repeatedly this staff is not easily swayed from moving off of their top targets. And the reality is the majority of these highly-ranked kids aren't going to make early decisions, which can give off the appearance that this staff is struggling when the truth is it's the exact opposite. This should be a happy board in July and August.

  39. IT saying CB Selman Bridges of Lake Belton will officially visit Texas on the June 24th weekend. They're also saying there's a "strong sense" that WR Micah Hudson will be there too. https://247sports.com/player/selman-bridges-46134764/ https://247sports.com/player/micah-hudson-46114316/
