  1. Sark was on the Dan Patrick show this morning and he was asked out how difficult it’s going to be to out recruit Nick Saban, his response was, “I hope to still be here 15 years from now and people will be asking how do you out recruit Steve Sarkisian?”

    Some sad news tonight

    I know some of us here are/have been posters on other sites over the years. One of our close friends, @JimsTexas, passed away this morning, peacefully in his sleep. His son called me tonight with the news. Jim had some health issues, but still was able to go out and fish and faithfully followed the Longhorns, never wavering in his support regardless of recruiting classes, coaches or W/L record. I've personally known him for years and spoke with him on Monday night. I'm happy to call him a friend, spelling mistakes and all. If you're the praying type, please keep his wife, son and gr

  3. For the most part our team doesn’t stay for/stand/sing/put horns up or participate in singing the Eyes of Texas? And the head coach doesn’t enforce the Athletic Director’s directives? Tom Herman should be fired for insubordination if he is guilty. End of story. There is no excuse. If not because of that he should be let go by the end of the season for not developing his players and for fielding a mediocre product over four years. Four years is enough time to see progress. Charlie got three but had losing seasons in each. Now on to Del Conte. He screwed up from the beginning by giving

  4. Watch this commercial just past the Doritos "Bold" logo at the end for this to really make sense. My buddy Dave Vabora created the Adaptive Training foundation after his NFL career He was Mr Irrelevant in 2008, drafted by the St Louis Rams. He would finish his career at Seattle. Incredible guy. Many of the people in the video are friends.

  5. Talked to an old friend yesterday who works with FBS ADs and Head Coaches around the country and he had this to say about what's going on at Texas: "Any fans dumb enough not to be crazy excited about the recruiting potential, OC & DC and returning ability is bat shit nuts and should have their fan cards taken away. Its f'ing go time now in Austin." "Ya'll got no idea what ya got for 2021 potential." On our phone call he also said emphatically that the RRR next season will be for a playoff spot. He lives in Oregon and also works with most of the Pac-12 schools and said that

  6. quit making excuses for them would be a good start. I have three separate lines of Cherokee and I dont hold ANYONE today responsible for the Trail of Tears, of which two of my Cherokee lineages were forced to participate. The Irish were treated horrendously as well. Every race and every culture has had slavery and victims of it. Name ONE player at Texas that isnt at an advantage over 90% of peers in the state of Texas. You may find a couple or three exceptions but for the most part, these players are self-important, entitled, brats screaming for attention (as are players in other prog

  8. At what point will people realize how absurd society has become? The song is not racist in any form or fashion. There is no end to “things” that were subverted by ignorant people of the past. Why do we continue to let those people shape our future. Our University did not accept African Americans until 1956. Do we shut down the University because it was most definitely racist prior to that time? The Eyes of Texas is supposed to remind us of OUR University family and the bond we ALL share. Our family is Burnt Orange and that is the only color that should matter to anyone. People who try and make

  9. These staff hires tell me two things. We are finally acting like the wealthiest athletic program in the country instead of just talking about it. If Sark can put this quality of a staff together it’s obvious his coaching peers believe he’s a dude. Kid’s don’t want to play for pretenders (I won’t mention any names) if the coaches believe in him the kids will too.

    Decommitment

    I have decided to decommit from being a Texas fan for the remainder of 2020. A lot of thought was put into this decision, however after the in ability for our coaches to teach basic skills, such as blocking, tackling and not getting penalties I have decided to spend my time elsewhere that is more deserving of my time. please respect my decision

  12. The pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fall into place as Steve Sarkisian assembles his initial staff on the 40 acres. Friday afternoon, Sarkisian announced 9 on-field hires in addition to naming his Director of Football Performance. The head coach spent some time talking about how he went about filling out his staff: “Player development, X’s and O’s and ability to recruit were our priorities with this staff. When you look at their backgrounds, there’s experience and expertise from an NFL standpoint, coaching at a very high level in the college ranks, and it’s an outstanding collection

  13. Disclaimer: I have no idea how good a coach Pete Golding is. But as I've followed all of this stuff over the past week or so, I get the impression that there are not all that many assistant coaches out there that a team's fanbase doesn't hate. When Bama's defense plays well, it's due to Saban. When it plays bad, that's on Golding. Typical fans, lol.

  15. I don't visit this board that otten, I spend most of my time on IT. Why I'm not sure. I have been lambasted and skinned alive by many posters over there. Even the mods. But IT does provide many interesting articles and a couple of writers that I admire - particularly one called Scipio Tex. But I do have an affinity for this site because the posters seem to lack the arrogance that is prevalent on IT. So it has been my pleasure to divulge what little behind the scenes info I acquire here rather than there. I just hope you folks understand that most of what I here is often infused

  16. Lol! The truth is you are correct. Hiring and firing of coaches is always a delicate and sensitive operation and for good reasons. There are the money aspects, reputations, pasts and futures of people, other coaches and the just plain optics of it. It's true that old codgers like myself who have grown up with people that are connected ti UT, get occasional morsels of interesting info. But we rarely are privy to the meat and potatoes. I will say this as most of you have already ascertained, as far as the admin is concerned the bloom is off the rose regarding Herman., And it is irrepa

    Lemme get this straight

    I would just remove any Band members that dont want to play it. We can always find more or as @Sirhornsalot mentioned invite HS bands. Employees that pull that crap get fired and replaced. I dont see why students should be treated differently. You dont want to play it then find someone who does. Problem fixed. Any players not wanting to stand for the Eyes, show them the portal. They are not entitled to that scholarship. They can go elsewhere for all I care. I do not want them here at all, yes that means you Overshown and whoever else. I dont care how athletic they are. I would

  18. View from the Cheap Seats-Mad Miners of UTEP Could not have scripted it better. In a year where we have been deprived of sports, spring football etc, the 2020 college football season is finally here and with it a degree, of a return to normalcy. Coach Tom clearly has done a good job getting the team ready for the opener and TEXAS dominated an outmatched UTEP team of mad minors (miners?) from start to finish. On a day when the BigXII teams SERIOUSLY stubbed their toes, TEXAS, OU and WVU represented well against each’s respective tomato cans. ISU Kan

  19. @hornsups What’s to prevent other players from doing the same or leaving?? It better mean more than a UT education and a football career. Missing a season is a big risk and not many would want to do that, IMO. Make hay while the sun shines, as they say. Besides, its the rules. On the other hand, I think Overshown has a great point to make. There was talk. But there hasn't been results or communication regarding the issue. Thats on CDC and UT. I see nothing wrong with renaming some buildings, removing some statues and whatnot. They could at least get that moving. It’s

  21. Great scoop for TFB. They made this call last night and had sat on it for 24 hours before that. About the hire: HOME RUN – How many times have we whined and complained about our inability to make half time adjustments? Kiss those days good bye!!! This guy excels in game planning, mid-game adjustments, and PLAY CALLING. His weakness is recruiting but given a couple of years of success, his defense should recruit itself here at Texas. Nevertheless, he is surrounded by good recruiters on defense. He is innovative. This guy should have been the first name out of the hat, IMO. I

  22. When I first looked at it I thought it seemed “gimmicky” but as I looked at what they do from a personnel standpoint it’s pretty solid. Two big/athletic DT’s. One OLB/DE that sets the edge and rushes the passer. One OLB/DE that is speedy to rush or drop in coverage. Two traditional ILB’s to “seek and destroy” and 5 DB’s who cover, run support or blitz. With our current DT’s size and athletic ability you are almost requiring a double team inside at worst the center and both guards have their hands full. Everyone else is one on one blocking. If we have any edge rushing from our OLB’s we should

    Herman got political and failed to develop players. Two reasons to stick a fork in him.

  31. Wanted to take a moment from the hand wringing over CUM's decision to break TEXAS fans hearts and remember the attack on Pearl Harbor, on this day 79 years ago. Also, while the movie Pearl Harbor sucked, the scenes from the attack were outstanding and captured well the events of that morning. Also, while we all know about the USS Arizona, I only learned the story of the USS Nevada while steaming out of Pearl Harbor as we deployed to WESTPAC. A great story. On the morning of Dec 7th, the USS Nevada was moored to the northern most spot along

  32. Its been like a funeral for our board members around here for the past year. The spring training that got cancelled. The Spring game as well. Fall camp filled with social justice BS. Then the close encounter of the Lubbotocks kind. Then the TCU slap in the face followed by the OU game and Ehlinger slinging up the Hook'em all by his lonesome . . . . . . . but TODAY, our hoops team wins the Maui Invitational Championship by knocking off ranked North Carolina. Team is undefeated and making noise and deep enough across the board to make a serious run. . . . meanwhile, someone smuggled in box

  34. Folks, I'm beginning to think we're going to need a redo on this election. I know its unheard of but there is no credibility left in the process we're currently conducting. Rampant cheating on a scale that renders the whole thing pointless. Whoever ends up winning, is not our president. They were not elected to the office. This looks very much, and I don't say this lightly, as an attempted coup/takeover.

  35. "The Eyes of Texas are upon you..." Yes, they are, and when you run off the field and show disrespect for your school, what have you accomplished? The school song is only racist if you imagine it is. Racism is real and it's bad, but the school song is not a good example. Creating a problem when there is no problem is utter foolishness. Choose your battles wisely, young men, so you don't do damage to the very cause you're fighting for.

  39. I think LSU is not where an aspiring coach wants to go right now, at least not until O shows he has staying power. Not sure he can do it. My Dad used to say that a person can let adversity beat them or make them stronger. After watching Sark’s press conference, I think he put a lot of effort into making himself stronger.

  44. The reason DKR got out when he did and why his recruiting began to suffer is that recruiting became more like a "job fair"...or better..."deal or no Deal"..So many players were getting paid that it got hard to no go along. Frank Broyles threw in the towel before Royal. In fact , the story was that when DKR went to Earl Campbells house for his "in home" he asked Earl if he had been offered money. Earl just laughed....of course he had....but then he got real serious and told DKR...."Coach, my people were bought and sold like cattle at one time.... aint nobody buying Earl Campbell!"

  45. The new president has a committee to investigate the history of the Eyes of Texas. I heard the coaches were made to stay. You can flame me all you want but I bet the whole thing is Carrington bitching about having to stay. He been one of the main outspoken one since this started. If he doesn’t like it go work somewhere else. I don’t give a crap. Again we are spending more time on this stuff than getting ready to play football. Texas made a good faith effort with several concessions, but guess what......it’s not good enough. Guess what else.......no matter what they do it won’t be good enough.
