  2. I can't verify this, but DT Sydir Mitchell supposedly said Texas has three silent commitments, not including Kirkland. Two defense and one offense. Also, there will be a secret visitor or two at the BBQ next weekend.

  3. IT saying the staff is no longer bringing in OL Miles McVay next weekend. I guess they went shopping at Costco this week and got what they needed?

  4. This was not a downer for me. I understand your thoughts here. But of course, I don't agree. Ya see, I just had a KEG of burnt orange kool-aid. Before I finished it, I had established an IV from the keg to my arm. 11-1 with Bama being the only loss. And we stay within 10 pts of Bama. There's just a little kool aid left if you want some! lol

  6. Agreed. This is the only place I post for a reason. Good conversation, we speculate together, share info, drool over Kate and cheer for the Horns. Good little community. No place for insults and name calling.

    Im not old (well to some I may be), but my least favorite thing is turning on a game and not being able to instantly recognize the teams playing because of their alternate jerseys. Texas has such a strong brand, logo and a unique color. No need to muck around with it.

  9. #1 - from what I have been told, UT does not intend to play any member of the new Big 12 and the SEC and ESPN will help mitigate any penalties incurred (if any) when we leave. I haven't heard what OU will do. #2 - it's not a reach to know the Big 12 will add more teams and they will come from the PAC. UT doesn't really care because we won't be here when it happens.

  10. No more getting 1st and goal from the 1 and end up losing 5 yards and have to kick a field goal. Time to knock their ass back into the endzone.

  11. This is a post I saw on another website from a poster named victory88. I thought it was worthy of sharing. This is related to the video TFloss has posted about "promises not kept." That was a great listen. It was pretty easy to figure out who he was talking about. For those that didn't listen, he basically said that Jordan Addison isn't getting what he was promised. That this stuff will come out in the open in the future. Also implied pretty confidently that there is a program recruiting much higher than their norm and that it's going to result with locker room problems and transfers over the next year to two years. Assuming he's talking about aggy which it's pretty clear he is, he stated that this particular program promised recruits a bunch of ridiculous money and in their contracts, there are a bunch of stipulations for these players to actually get the money which was never relayed to them. For example, they only start getting payments if they are starting, or if they meet certain qualifications. Now if the player and family feels pissed about about being lied to, they are stating "well you signed the contract". Mentioned that it may not affect players that live near home but recruits that moved from OOS that had no interest in the program and simply were there for transactional reasons, will likely transfer. Makes sense of the rumors of Walter Nolan wanting out. It also falls in line with seeing how they are struggling to recruit big time right now. They went from signing the best class ever in the history of recruiting coming off of a 8-4 season to struggling to get recruits on campus a few months later. Josh Pate mentioned these recruits will talk to current players and it makes a lot more sense now why more guys are not falling for their "commit now or the offer is gone" pitch. He also mentioned that there are schools that are doing it the right way. That their pitch to players is that we aren't guaranteeing you anything but that we have the structure and resources in place for you to actually monetize on your name and build a brand if you come in and do the right things. Sounds pretty much like what Texas is doing. In addition, we see to be making an effort to create a baseline for all players to be payed and then creating opportunities for the ones that are producing to get the bigger dollar offers through all the opportunities in Austin. In summary, he basically said that a ton of coaches, GAs, and recruiting department personnel have told him about the bullshit at USC and aggy and how it's going to get exposed for the next few years.

  13. Standish from 247 said a while back a committed player in Texas to someone else told him he thinks Toviano ends up at Texas and tonight said a separate source said the same thing.

  16. I don't remember anyone saying that on this board. A lot of hope for a better season, yes, but no talk of being ready for an SEC championship, yet. When you get knocked down, you hope that when you get back up, you don't get knocked down again. Without that hope, you don't get up. Your message is coming across as advice to just stay down, whether you mean it that way, or not. That's why some are seeing maroon raindrops on our orange parade. Have some orange koolaid, my friend. It's free.

  17. TFB had a source tell them Quinn Ewers is leading the QB race, and it's his job to lose. One big reason being is he's better in the RPO game and gives the staff the ability to open up the playbook.

  19. What the hell, man? Your post is childish and totally uncalled for. I went back and looked and @Wayne has not said one disprectful word to you in this little discussion you all are having. And you come back with crap like this? You seriously need to learn how to have an adult conversation.

  20. Our rankings were high because we were able to get a 5-star and some steady 4-stars – but seldom in our positions of need. The OL recruiting under Strong and Herman was atrocious. That is, to me, the major difference. Sark seems to recruit needs and the OL recruiting has done a 360.

    The NIL doesn't hurt, but I think that having Kyle Flood, and a head coach with a more compelling offense are bigger factors.

  22. Well, that's not really the perspective he's trying to inform us of. What he's saying is ESPN is up to shenanigans again. This is their "hey look at me" moment this off season. What is happening is ESPN is trying to punish Manning for not going to the camps. And ESPN is looking a little foolish because of it right now. Nothing has happened at all that would elevate or separate anyone from anyone, except personal/corporate motivation.

  23. Texas will play in the SEC in 2023. Trust me on this. Also, the Big 12 will have new members in 2023. Trust me on this as well.

  24. I saw this and it pretty much tells the story. After that championship game where Colt got hurt it’s been pretty downhill. Time for Sark and crew to right the ship.

  30. I don't think anyone on this board has said anything about an SEC championship or thinks we'll walk in and win a title. Thats nonsense because no one is talking about a championship. We've watched while aggy has struggled to stay in the middle of the pack in a division of a conference, so we know its a tough league for aggy. Its so tough that Mizzou won a division only once and aggy hasn't won anything at all. We've watched while some schools have sold the kitchen sink for a coach who can take them to the promised land – only to see them show no improvement over what they had before. I think we understand how hard it will be. lol

  31. Please tell me I'm not making crap up in my head....Could they be talking about D. Wilson here? Now I'm intrigued Wilson and Guilette at the EDGE will do just fine.....more than fine.

  34. Here are a few things I observed at today's first practice. Just kidding, but here are few things I read on another site. - TE Jaleel Billingsley got off the bus liimping and was limited in practice. - WR Troy Omeire was a full participant. - QB Maalik Murphy ran 3rd string in every drill. - Card and Ewers split first-team QB reps. But one of them's quickness and accuracy with the ball stood out - Big is an understatement when it comes to the freshmen OL. Massive more like it.

  35. 1983 Texas defense gave up 9 points per game on average. Allowed Georgia to cross the 50 yard line 3 times in a Cotton Bowl loss that cost us a national championship Best college defense I’ve ever seen.

  37. I expect aggy will pull out all of the stops with Hill's visit. This is their recruiting season right here. If they walk away from their big sword fight at the swimming pool event without a commit, they're in big trouble. Getting Hill can turn their recruiting fortunes around, similar to the way Arch did for us albeit a few levels down. If Hill returns from his visit still uncommitted, I think he's ours.

  39. Lot's of confusion here with people posting and replying regarding different topics and recruits: Malik Muhammed is committing today at either 5 or 6 pm (I've seen both times in different places) IT seemed to report someone committed to the staff last night. We don't know who or when it'll be public. It perhaps could be Payton Kirkland All the weirdness as above with Payton Kirkland who is potentially going public with a commitment this Saturday. I think that should clear up some of the recent confusing posts.

  40. BTW TFloss, I’ve been following you since you were on the Spurs UT forum. That’s what brought me here and I just recently posted my first time. I offer that information so that everyone knows I’m not some alter because of my post activity. I have been here long enough to remember when Show had a family issue and disappeared, came back, disappeared again, and recently came back again. I love reading TFloss and Sirhorn.. commentary and I appreciate the work y’all put in. First thing I do every morning is check in.

  41. Of the 7 games we lost last year, all but Arkansas and Iowa State, had we been even just a smidge better team we likely win. So if anything moves the needle appreciably towards improvement, I don't see why 9-10 wins isn't doable.
