    **Jump to the bottom to see update USTFCCCA scores for contenders if you do not want to read the full update** Men's track will be in a dog (bulldog?) fight with UGA in the NCAA championship. After being ranked first all year, the final rankings update bumped Texas out of the top spot and replaced them with Georgia. These rankings are an objective measure, ranking the top finishes by athletes across the entire season of meets and assigning points. While only the top 8 finishes at the NCAA meet will score team points, these rankings assign increasingly small amounts of points for athletes ranking well below this. The final rankings update included only points for athletes who advanced to the championship meet, up to 24 athletes per event. Here is a link for the ranking system: http://www.ustfccca.org/assets/rankings/2022_motf_d1_tfri_week10_natl_team_detail.pdf After day 1 of competition, Texas ranks 4th but this is only after 6 of the 21 events have been scored. Semifinals for many track events were completed but the finals won't be run until tomorrow. As a way to see how the teams are stacking up after the 1st 6 scored events and semifinals the track events, I used the USTFCCCA rankings system and adjusted the scores based on the current status of the event. For events that have gone final, I adjusted the athletes predicted score to reflect their actual finish. For runners who failed to advance to the finals of their event, I subtracted their entire score as we now know they will not earn any team points. Note, the top 8 finishers score between 10-1 team points. Most track events qualify 9 runners for the finals. Georgia advanced their runners in the 100, 200 and 400 M races but 5th ranked 800 m runner Clayborn Penders did not makes the finals. Other big losses include not advancing the 4x400M relay teams and losing 4th ranked decatholoner (injury?) who did not finish competition. They earned an unexpected point in Javelin, where 10th ranked athlete bumped up to 8th place and earned 1 point. All told, they lost 95.32 points off of their USTFCCCA rankings score. Texas had a good day overall with all of their top 8 ranked athletes earning points or moving on to the finals except for Big 12 champion 100 m sprinter Micaiah Harris. The 4th ranked 100 m sprinter failed to make the finals in his event though he did advance in the 200 m where he has the top performance of the season. Jonathan Jones, #2 ranked in the nation in the 400 m advanced to the final while #9 Yusuf Bizimana advanced in the 800 m and looks to steal some points in the event. Both relays advanced and will look to score some points on Friday. Jumper Stacy Brown came in ranked #10 but improved his mark and finished 7th, earning valuable team points in the long jump. #1 Trip Piperi took home his 2nd consecutive NCAA championship in shot put. Leo Neugebauer is in the mix for a podium finish in the decatholon. Overall, Texas dropped 52 points off their USTFCCA score. A mixed bag for Florida state as their #1 ranked 10k runner finished in 7th while their #4 and #7 longjumpers finished 2nd and 3rd. Their #2 ranked 4x100 squad failed to advance but their #1 ranked 100 hurdler did make the finals. The 5k will be an important race for them as they have runner ranked 7th and 10th. Overall, they dropped 28 points from their score. Florida has a very strong sprint program and advanced 5 sprinters and both relay teams. The only failure coming from their 8th ranked 400 m runner but this is easily made up for by the #10 ranked 400 m advancing. They dropped a total of 25 points. BYU's score was gutted with a combination of high ranked performers faltering and lower ranked performers not advancing as expected. Their 2nd ranked pole vaulter finished 6th, while their 6th ranked vaulter didn't place. #4 in the 800 m failed to advance. Other than that, they had multiple entries ranked in the teens or teens who did not advance as expected. Updated Score (Original Score) 1. Texas - 206.31 (259.15) 2. Florida State - 169.21 (197.62) 3. Georgia - 165.46 (260.78) 4. Florida - 155.2 (180.25) 5. Texas Tech - 128.77 (168.41) 6. LSU - 126.72 (186.51) 7. BYU - 94.23 (192.02) Conclusion - Texas did well to only drop 1 predicted scorer (100 m #4) . Georgia lost several (800 m #5, Decathalon #4, and #6 4x400, #8 hammer toss). Florida State and Florida with strong days to move up and be in competition for 2nd. Texas has opened a gap and is in a strong position.

  5. On3 saying five-star TE Duce Robinson of Phoenix, AZ is looking into a Texas visit this summer. He mentioned he's been in constant communication with Coach Banks and that relationship is going strong, plus he made the trip to Phoenix twice in the spring to visit his high school. He's also a big fan of QB Arch Manning and is keeping a close eye on his decision. “How could you not be watching that,” Robinson said. “It is hard not to keep up with a player like that. Then, we have a relationship too, so it would be cool to go to school with a player like that." “To go to college with someone you know, someone you have a relationship with, and a quarterback like Arch, that would be throwing me the ball would be great. I am interested in where he goes like everyone else.” https://247sports.com/player/duce-robinson-46086662/

  7. 2022, the last one we signed. Out of 28 signees (recruits, not transfers), 8 of those were from out of state. So only 20 kids from Texas were given scholarships. How can you possibly lock down the state with only 20 scholarships dispersed in-state? Go ahead, look for yourself https://247sports.com/college/texas/Season/2022-Football/Commits/

  9. https://www.usabaseball.com/golden-spikes-award/nominees/2022 Go Vote for Ivan. You can vote 25 times a day, very quick to do so. Fan vote counts for 5% of the total. He is definitely the better candidate over the other position player, Kevin Parada. Parada would have been the top power hitter most years but is behind Ivan in all major categories (HR, RBIs, slugging percentage) and he is not near the top of OBP or Bavg leader like Ivan. Not a major defensive catcher either with only 12 caught stealing out of 41. The pitcher who is a finalist is probably the top pitcher across the board but does rank at the top of any major category. He has less wins the Pete Hansen and a higher ERA than Lucas Gordon for example. He does lead the nation in strike outs.

  10. Thats more than 1/4 of your class, but you're free to believe whatever you like. When Texas kids are flocking to Ohio State, Bama, Aggy, USC, etc., you'd probably go after OOS of equal talent rather than settle for what everybody else left you in-state. . . or maybe you wouldn't.

  12. Down 0-1 in the series, Mike White has OU right in his sights. Texas Softball might want to consider money whipping the hitting coach at OU to try and bring him over.

  15. I had to go back to my old place after the movers left some things, AND as I was rushing out the door to begin loading the car, a 5 to 6 footer was on my front porch! I politely said excuse me, and went back inside until he left. Enough said.

  19. It would be great to see signees from all the sports on this site, not just football; at least I haven't seen it. I've come across some signees from Baseball and Girls Basketball.

    He might be baby faced (if that's what you meant by fluffy) but I counted 16 pancakes on his junior highlight reel. Plus he has good feet. I wonder if Texas' great OL haul this last cycle is deterring kids from coming?

  22. I like the chances of the Horns having the last visit. It's clear Texas has made Arch the #1 priority at QB just by their actions alone. I mean there is only 1 QB offer for 23 and it's him, right or wrong. UGA has 12 QB offers on the table. They can say Arch is a priority, but actions speak louder than words. The Manning's are not dumb and know what type of offensive mind is needed at the helm. Dont believe that kind of creativity and next-level QB preparation exists at UGA. I get it, they won the NC and hats off to them, but it wasn't because they're offensive juggernaut. Maybe Texas doesn't win a natty, but the Manning's know Arch will be prepared and developed for the next level under Sark.

  23. I get the SEC Network as well. However, I never watch it. When they do broadcast games, its always Vanderbilt vs Miss St or some such. The SEC has to give up its best games to the big networks. But the ego and arrogance on the network is a simple continuation of ESPN's love affair with that conference. If Texas and OU do join the SEC, it will then indeed be the best conference in the land and its not even close.
