  3. We are second fiddle to no one! Why? Because I said so, that’s why. If you think so, fine, there is the door. I am sick of that crap! You have a loser mentality, not the guys that give it everything they have. You are the ones that boo if things go wrong, that leave before the Eyes, and whine if the QB throws an interception. Our last two coaches may have screwed the pooch, but that in no way means that our team is composed of losers. Now cut the crap, or find another team! I went to Texas, paid for my child to go to Texas, and you need to put up or shut up. Hook ‘em!

  5. There's a rumor going around the net today that Brini (Georgia) is coming to Texas. Arkansas, the other major contender, has stopped following him on social media. We'll see. Would be a big time pick up.

  6. So, LSU is playing their bowl game with only 38 scholarship players and will likely lose. Tell me again how many players ATM had available for their bowl? I know it was high 40's. LSU just gave a big middle finger to Aggy.

  8. IT saying all signs continue to point to Marion as the next WRs coach. They believe it will happen tomorrow, at the latest, since Pitt plays tonight. Sark supposedly met with him in Atlanta (where Pitt's bowl game is) earlier in the week, but I couldn't find any confirmation of that.

  9. I liked what Sark had to say in support of Bo. I don’t curse, though sometimes I have to bite holes in my tongue, but I guarantee you that almost all of the players on that bus have heard and said worse, much worse. Cosby and Diggs were right, on their teams one of the players would have called the guys out. Unfortunately, on this team, I think the leaders, for the most part, are the underclass men, and they typically won’t call out an upperclassman. I despise losing. Despite the fact that I’m a woman, losing doesn’t make me cry, it makes me mad. It takes everything that I have to be gracious, then when I get away from everyone, or I am with my family, I let go. In other words, I would have felt exactly like Coach Bo did. I might have said it a bit differently, but the message would have been the same. “I respect the game and care about winning. If you don’t, then hit the portal and get the hell out. You are a waste of my time.”

  10. FYI I'm going to give y'all a weekly recruiting recap each Saturday evening (starting tonight) with all of the in-state offers, commitments and de-commitments by class. I know some of you don't invest much in recruiting or don't have time for social media, so this will be a quick recap to help you familiarize yourself with everything going on and to better understand how some of it may relate to Texas' recruiting efforts. Hope you enjoy, and please feel free to provide feedback/suggestions.

    I also stopped watching NFL football years ago. Pro baseball a couple of years ago. NBA decades ago. Didn’t like the preaching of values I do not support nor the premadonnas thinking they walk on water. College football is becoming NFL lite. I can stop watching CF if it gets just as bad.

  12. Gonna miss Stand Drayton, but I really love the Choice and Marion hires. Both are young, hungry and relentless on the recruiting trail. Should be able to relate to recruits and be in on a lot of top level talent on offense. Sark, Flood, Banks, Choice and Marion on the recruiting trail....that's impressive.

  14. Expectations are sky high for Texas baseball following a trip to the College World Series in 2021. The Longhorns have been ranked as the #1 team in the country heading into the 2022 season, according to D1baseball.com. Texas returns much of their roster from the 2021 season, including Pete Hansen, Tanner Witt, Tristan Stevens, Ivan Melendez, Mitchell Daly, Trey Faltine, Eric Kennedy, Doug Hodo and Silas Ardoin. The Longhorns will also welcome back Austin Todd and Andre Duplantier from injuries. Texas kicks off the 2022 season at Disch Falk Field on February 18th as they open a 3-game series against Rice.

  19. I've been a sports writer for a lot of years, covering the SEC since 2004. Several years ago you could see this coming. College football as we've known it is going to end, and the NCAA will end with it. Super conferences like what the SEC is building will rule the landscape, and I don't think the SEC is done with adding teams. College football will be run like the NFL with its own commissioners, etc. I also think the bowls as we have known them for 100 years will ultimately end and there will be an NFL style playoff format. This will put an end to the opt-outs. If you are a college football purist, this is going to be a tough time. Money rules everything and ESPN is the driving force behind what we're seeing, just like ESPN was the driving force behind Texas and OU moving to the SEC. It was an either jump on the train or get left at the station thing for them.

  20. His father passed away is what I was told. He had to help the family. By everyone who knows him he’s a great kid. He’s a player who’s NIL money could really help the family.

  22. He is all about himself and an attention-seeker. Which fits in with the head coach at Jackson State very well.

  23. I sure hope we get Mathis out of TCU. That guy is a QB Hunter and there aren’t a lot of guys that have that skill set. The defensive game greatly changes when you can get to the QB with your front 4. Opens up so much in the backend. I want guys that get to the QB and is pissed off when they get there. Once that happens, we’ll win……because Sark is going to have an offense.

  24. And I think it's worth repeating for anyone who missed it, but Georgia and Ole Miss visited Manning's school recently and both offered other '23 QBs shortly after. Manning remains the only '23 target for Texas.

    You aren't limited to 7 portal transfers a year. You are limited to 25 "initial counters" - or in other words, 25 scholarship players attributed to a recruiting cycle year. These 25 can be HS, Grad transfer or portal transfer. The 7 you are referring to is regarding a NCAA ruling that allows for up to 7 additional transfers to replace players who have transferred away from your program. So it essentially becomes 25 + 7 (if you have had 7 outgoing transfers). Difficulty from a fan perspective, we never really know which recruits are being counted in what way. Some recruits are back counted to previous recruiting classes. Some may blue shirt or grey shirt. This isn't typically publicly available information which is why you will see so much confusion on boards like this regarding numbers. With such confusing rules and limited public information, I have stopped paying much attention to the numbers and just let things play out.

  29. I'd put in the work for Perkins. Huge get at a huge position of need. He can start here instantly. PT + NIL + NFL opportunity + UT coeds + program on the upward trend + no embarrassing ice cream men + no crotch grabbing fake army = why the hell not?

  31. Per IT, Alabama transfer LB Drew Sanders arrived in Austin last night and was shown around by his former high school teammate, Ja'Tavion Sanders. It is their opinion that Arkansas doesn't make sense for him defensively, and Venables' staff at OU is completely new to him.

  32. And that would be awesome! Maybe Sark comes up with a wildcat play where Red pitches to White who throws downfield to Blue for the TD \\m//

  35. I have posted this before, but your post made methink of it again, so I say it again... After the '69 season, UT had to revamp how they awarder letters to players. before it had been....if one played a certain amount of minutes in a season, they got lettered. After the '69 season it was discovered that many of the starters had not played enough minutes to get awarded. In those days DKR ran those guys out there and usually they scored TD's on the firsy 4 possessions....Then the second string came in and usually kept right on going. The benefit of this was fewer starter injuries....and game time experience for the backups. Mack Brown never grasped this concept.

  36. The vacant WR coach position on Steve Sarkisian's staff is expected to be filled by Pitt WR Brennan Marion, according to multiple reports. Marion will be taking over for Andre Coleman, who was relieved of his duties. The former Tulsa standpoint has been a fast riser through the coaching ranks. He served as the offensive coordinator at Howard (2017-2018) and William and Mary (2019) before becoming the WR coach at Hawaii (2020) and Pitt (2021).

  37. Didn't we win that game? I swore we did cause I was there. I hope I didn't get really drunk and get confused. Texas had a better offense (#1 vs #2) and better defense (#9 vs #35) than USC that year so statistically Texas was better. I agree we would have lost some games if not for Vince but the fact is he was there for all of them and he was a member of the team.

  38. For those keeping score at home... 911 FBS scholorship athletes entered the portal since 8/1 32 withdrew 243 went to new schools 636 are still in the portal! To me that reads that 636 entered with a 4 year scholarship and rolled the dice and come out with nothing. I am sure their schools were glad to get the scholarship back. These kids need to determine if the reason they are not getting playing time is that they just are not that good. If that is the case, they had best take advantage of that scholly and get the best education they can.

  40. Yea, it was a team win. There were lots of plays that were just outstanding, not made by Vince Young. When Earl Thomas streaked across the field and intercepted that pass near the goal line to stop a drive. When our LB (can't recall his name) literally caught Reggie Bush down the sideline. Holding the USC offense on 4th and 2 late in the game. There were so many. There were tons of great players on that field that night.
