  1. My thoughts. 1. I have no idea if Sark will make it and get us where we want to go. 2. I think he does need at least 3-4 years more to attempt to get it fixed. Why you ask.. I have never started a thread like this and I really do not care who believes it etc. But here it goes. I am lucky enough to be good friend with several big time recruits parents right now. Here is a little feedback from them about the Texas program. Here are their thoughts 1. They think Sark is a good coach and can win here.. (they really like Sark) 2. Sark walked into a mess 3. Concerned fans and boosters will not give him time to fix it. Another coaching change scares them 4. The think the roster and culture is rotten. Bad players, bad mindset etc etc ( They think a ton of players need to leave) 5. Immediate playing time is important. 6. SEC move is good. Hook'em

  3. You listen to Bijan’s words from the press conference today and I will say again, this kid is not only one of the best running backs in college football but he’s one of the best people. Paraphrasing here but He said he is really big on sticking to his word and he gave Texas his word and he is going to stand behind it. Went around and shook hands with every reporter after the press conference. He begged to stay in the game…..with a dislocated elbow……..because his team needed him. Prayed with Ehlinger on the sidelines last year in the Colorado game when Sam got hurt. This kids parents have ALOT to be proud of. Takes pictures with fans. He’s the face of this program and rightfully so.

  5. Let's go beyond the caption... HC: Dude, have you heard of this Johnny Depp guy? CT: Is that the guy that's obsessed with you? HC: Yeah bro. That's him. He says I should start over you, which is cool. But he also keeps showing up at my place, wanting to hang out. He keeps sending me letters. He calls and texts me constantly. I mean, I've changed my number three times already, and he keeps tracking me down and getting the new number. This is serious, bro. Should I contact law enforcement? CT: He thinks you should start over me? HC: Bro, this is serious. Are you even listening to me?

  7. Okay, spoke to my friend this afternoon. Be on the look out for Banks and also Guilbeu. He says Dewberry is still in play and not to listen to what Mike says. lol. In fact, he thinks we may lead due to the fact that he can walk in and start. Says thats playing hard on his mind. Two others he singled out – LTG and believe it or not, Evan Stewart. Says both will be in this class. That was a pretty exciting conversation. He seemed ready to talk today.

  8. I'm still drinking the kool-aid on Sark even though I must admit he wouldn't have been my first choice. Look at it this way, if Foster and Schooler are the 2 best safeties on this team, is that Sark's fault? Schooler is a converted safety, from which makes the missed INT even more frustrating. Foster, who many on here have stated, gets beat a lot. This team was doing pretty good until Casey hurt his thumb. I believe the offense was covering up a weak defense. There are some studs, Bijan for one, that Sark inherited but not many. And yes I know he stated there was talent on this team when he took over but what else did you expect him to say? Anything else and he would have lost the team right then and there.

  9. Agree. Roschon, who was playing while still recovering from turf toe, Casey, see above, and Worthy, came up limping several times, all played with major heart yesterday. Hoping the younger guys saw that at it inspired them.

  10. I'm thankful for many things. My health. My family. My friends. And down the line I am also thankful for Hornsports. It's a sane place that's a lot of fun with interesting people and good discussions. I am thankful to have that place. Back in the day, we used to frequent bars and have discussions like this. In the age of internet, we are able to span thousands of miles to do the same. For this, I am grateful. I wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. If you're on the road, please be safe, even if that means being a little late. Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. IMO last year's woke culture assault on the University did more harm than the product they put on the field...Parents and players dont want that social justice activism at the school, they just want to play their sport...it hurt the TEXAS brand more than anything, right now UT is NOT the cool place to attend..winning and winning big can change that

  12. Thst is best recruiting for this weekend. Every position will have open competition. You come in here and bust your ass and grab it, it's yours. We don't care if you're a freshman or grad transfer. No loyalty, just best players and hardest workers. We want guys that want to play FOR Texas, not play AT Texas

  13. On the Coach Davis video...IT saying the player who recorded and published the video isn't at practice and they have a portal article ready to go, but they aren't going to talk about it further until it's official. Sark let the team decide the fate of this player.

  14. I said it in the game thread. This just proves it. Some of the players were laughing and smiling after getting their asses handed to them the entire second half. That is a problem. I still remember watching my son in 5th grade play against a loaded a team. My sons team was an expansion team if you will with very little talent or coaching against basically an all star team. My son played QB and was smashed into oblivion all game long. After the miserable loss my son started to tear up. I still remember what the coach said to me after the game. He told me Stephen wanted to win this game and showed heart. Now granted its 5th grade football so it isnt all that serious for some kids but you could tell who was competitive and who wasnt in the post game. Same holds true here. For the language, im fine with it. I heard much worse from my coaches in HS. Some of these kids need to transfer if they dont give two shits about winning. Being complacent is contagious on a TEAM

  15. For the first time since early October, Texas is in the win column. The story of the game was Roschon Johnson. The junior carried the Texas offense on his back (literally at times), finishing the afternoon with 31 carries for 179 yards and a TD. Johnson ran with power and effort all game, with a lot of his damage coming via the wildcat package. Steve Sarkisian said after the game he wishes he could have 100 Roschon Johnson's on his team. Texas will be in a good spot if that ever happens.... The Texas offense as a whole was productive despite a banged up Casey Thompson and no Bijan Robinson. Steve Sarkisian reached deep into his bag of tricks throughout the game and did a good job of keeping Kansas State off balance. Speaking of Thompson, he had another up and down game, finishing 17/23 for 170 yards and a touchdown to go along with a bad interception he threw into double coverage. It is obvious Thompson played the last half of this season hurt, and it's tough to know what he could have done if he was close to 100% health. Steve Sarkisian said Monday he was going to reopen the QB competition this offseason and rightfully so. While Thompson had some good moments in 2021, he also was inconsistent even before the injury. Xavier Worthy finished 2 yards shy of 1,000 on the season, but it doesn't take away how good he was this year. Worthy was arguably the best WR in the Big 12 and delivered big performances the last few weeks despite battling injuries. He has the chance to be one of the best wide receivers to ever play at Texas by the time he leaves the 40 acres. Kyle Flood had to shuffle his offensive line after Junior Angilau went out with an injury, but the unit held up relatively well and helped pave the way for Johnson's big day. The offensive line has a whole certainly appeared to take some small steps forward the last few weeks, but I also believe Steve Sarkisian did a much better job of protecting them with his play calling. The defense was the surprise of the afternoon. Kansas State rushed for over 150 yards in the first half, but in the second half the Longhorns dominated. Texas secured two huge 4th down stops in the 4th quarter. Jaylan Ford turned in a solid performance and the defensive line helped cause a lot of disruption in short yardage situations. After the game, Sarkisian said he was very disappointed in the effort level by several players during Will Howard's 71 yard touchdown run. It's hard to disagree with him, as a few Texas DB's looked to give up on the play. Will Howard did not present any type of threat in the passing game so it's tough to truly grade the pass defense for Texas. The Longhorns finally started dedicating more numbers to the run game in the second half and left their corners on islands. It was good to see Texas win a game in which they trailed at halftime. It is well documented that Steve Sarkisian struggles when his teams are trailing at the half, but his staff was able to come up with the necessary adjustments defensively to help Texas shutout Kansas State in the second half. Overall, it was a very disappointing season for Texas considering the circumstances. The Longhorns blew double digit leads in the second half against Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Baylor in addition to also heading Iowa State at the half. Texas could easily have finished the season with 8 or 9 wins, but they didn't and now Steve Sarkisian is going to have to spend some time reflecting on what needs to change moving forward. For the time being, Texas will be attempting to put a bow on the 2022 recruiting class and will be navigating the transfer portal as they look to upgrade the roster heading into next season.

    Riley to usc

    Yea I left him out intentionally. I am going to give him more time just like I did the Herman and Strong. I turned on both Strong and Herman both for different reasons. Herman was fkn man child and arrogant pos. Strong was a good man just fkn clueless. Sark has had one year and yea it sucked but I think 2 more years. Most of you guys turned on Sark after his 3rd loss which is about right for typical Texas fans. Some of you never backed Sark to begin with. Right now you all have the Depp gun loaded but if Sark does turn it around I will remember the fire Sark crowd. There ya go, some shade from me.

  18. Last night on the local (Austin) news, they stated that Casey is going to not throw a football for at least a month to help heal his thumb. As I stated on the game thread, kid was giving it his all and playing hurt cause he knew there was nobody behind him yet that wasn't good enough for some.

    LSU should hire Napier instead, anyway. Jimbo ain't worth another exorbitant contract for mediocre SEC West finishes. He's fools gold.

  23. Man an epitome of a teammate, a warrior……..Bijan goes down and they’re walking him to the locker room and two or three times he looks back like he wants to stay. He hated to leave his teammates at that point. You could tell he hated to go to the locker room. He prayed with Ehlinger on the sidelines last year against Colorado when Sam went out. Great great kid.

  24. I still remember good ole coach Dan Beckelman. His son played for Texas. Coach Beckelman didn't care if we were up by 50 or down by 1. If you screwed up he let you know it and he could make Coach Bo seem nice in getting the message clear. You are either playing to win or you can ride the bench and leave the team till you decide what was more important looking good or being a winner and looking good while winning. He was a Junior high coach. We played some teams were just more talented, but that didn't matter to us. We need more coaches like Coach Bo telling the players like it is or go find a new place to play and do the social justice warrior crap somewhere else. I hear that SJW coach is in Chicago, take that crap there.

  25. Grain of salt time. A poster from another board said Sark was ripping into the offense during halftime, and Moore started blaming individual players. Bijan apparently told him to stop complaining and quit the team. If true, well done Bijan.

  32. https://247sports.com/Article/Texas-football-Kirk-Herbstreit-opens-up-on-Steve-Sarkisian-175436914/ Referring to Strong: “He just got there, was getting a lot of heat. He said, 'this is a tough job because on one hand, they want me to recruit a lot of these five-stars in this state, but I don't think they're great players. But there's such immense pressure to recruit this player out of this area or this player because they're five stars. And if you don't recruit those players, they're going to crush you because you didn't land that recruit. And if you do bring them in, you're deep down I don't know if this guy is a dog.' ... Sark knew this before he went. In fact, he and I had a conversation when his name was in there. I called him and I said, 'are you going to take this?' He said, 'yeah I think I'm gonna.' And I said, 'you know the deal there right.' He goes 'oh yeah, before I even commit, I'm going to talk to them about how I’m going to have to do this. It’s going to be really hard to do this the right way. And as long as you’re going to support me through this, we’re going to do this. It’s not going to be pretty.

    Jimbo to LSU?

    These type of articles are stupid. He may not leave ATM, but what the hell is he going to say during the season when asked? I don't think he would say, "Yeah, I'm thinking about it".

  35. Here we go again. Fire/hire this guy. We can keep doing this until we are bankrupt. Aranda was 2-7 in his first year and he was left a loaded team when Rhule left for the NFL. Rhule was 1-11 in his first season at Baylor. Then 7-6 the 2nd and 11-3 the 3rd I dont know if Sark is the guy and yes this team looks fkn pathetic but how many of you would have fired Rhule or Aranda after year 1?
