  1. Nope...they'll back date it and say that missing the Wake Forest game was his punishment
  2. Richard Justice was an idiot when he wrote for the Houston Chronicle and it doesn't look like he's changed with age. It's been a looong time since I read that fish wrap but if I recall correctly he seemed to take joy in slamming the Astros, Rockets, Oilers and the Longhorns. Don't remember anything he wrote about the other Texas schools because I never really cared what anyone had to say about them. He's the only sportswriter I can think of who made Dale Robertson (also a Chronicle sportswriter) sound rational.
  3. Last time I checked Nebraska wasn't in Oklahoma
  4. BlowU doesn't have a swim team for two very simple reasons...they have buoyancy issues and a hard time finding suits that'll fit
  5. Has anyone heard anything from anywhere about when we're making the move to the SEC?
  6. If the players see things with the same eyes that we do then they know that they've been outplayed over the last 5 games and that we haven't lost one game solely because of coaching, any player with doubts about that may want to go back and watch game film to take a look their effort/execution in games/practice. If you can't see that were getting outplayed then your not looking hard enough, are not watching the games or are getting your info off of social media and/or YouTube. We all knew at the beginning of the season that we had depth issues on both sides of the ball, especially with the O and D lines, and that we were going into the season without a great deal of experience at QB...Sark had nothing to do with any of that and little to no time to address that problem in the 2021 class recruited by Hermann to fit his schemes. A new offense and new defense with same problems and players that he inherited from the previous coach, only an idiot (no offense...) would believe that he'd be able to turn that around in less than a year without a chance to get the players he needs. Sark may have lost a fan or two over the season but I doubt that they were real Longhorns to begin with...they were probably more along the lines of aggy 2%ers, sound familiar?
  7. Then why are you on the 2022 Recruiting Board/Thread? The title pretty much gives away that the topic of discussion is going to be recruiting, do you typically spend your “me time” reading things that bore you? Macroeconomics bores the hell out of me so I don’t read, watch or discuss anything that relates to it and, thus, avoid the boredom that subject inflicts. You should try it…
  8. 3-Time NCAA Champion Shaine Casas Will Transfer Out of Texas A&M For those who don't follow swimming much...this is HUGE, Shaine Casas is one of the best swimmers in the US right now! He was an SEC/NCAA champion in the 100/200 backstroke and the 200 IM and just missed being on the Olympic team this year by tenths of a second. He's the best swimmer in the SEC and aggy has no one on their roster who's even close to his talent level, they went from SEC contenders to pretenders. I have a very plausible theory on how Shaine came to this decision... Shaine competed at the Texas Senior Circuit Long Course Meet at a&m the week after the Olympic Trials, he swam the 100 free and 100 fly and set personal best and pool record times in both events. Since he was the top seed in both events Shaine swam in lane 4 for prelims and finals; the fastest swimmers swim in lane 4, second fastest in 5, 3rd in 3, 4th in 6, etc.. They were short on timers for the meet so, for the most part, there were a couple of lanes that had the same timer for the duration of the meet, lane 4 was one of those and the gentleman timing Shaine for each of his swims was a Longhorn...yes, I was that timer. I believe that while he was warming down after each event Shaine pondered what was different about his swims that day as opposed to all of the other meets he'd been in over the last year and that the one thing that stood out above anything else was the fact that he had the same timer for each event and that timer was a Longhorn and that his inspiration didn't come from his home natatorium or his teammates but from the Longhorn logo he glimpsed before he stepped up to the block. While I'm sure being coached by Eddie Reese and the chance at a national championship played at part I don't think that either were the driving force...I'm taking credit for this recruitment!!
  9. Eddie Reese = GOAT!! There's no coach in any sport that's been as successful or as dominate! Watching the NCAA Championships this year was a blast! Longhorn swimming's going to be tough to beat, there are a lot of good underclassmen on the team.
  10. The Longhorn men's swim team won their 42nd championship in a row, 17 in the SWC and 25 in the Big XII! The Longhorn women won the conference for the 9th year in a row and have won the Big XII 19 times in 25 years. Big XII Swimming Championships
  11. One model has produced 6 national championships while the other got the coach fired
  12. I’m pretty sure that Coach Sark has all of the reminders that he needs and a support system in place that includes Nick Saban so I doubt that he’s going to be hopping on this board to get reminders from you or, for that matter, if he gives a shit about what J.B. TexasEx thinks
  13. Took the wife to Whiskey Cake and got the BYOF (build your own flight) with Blanton's, Kentucky Owl Confiscated, Old Forester B-Day 2020 and EH Taylor Small Batch, also tried Stagg Jr. for the first time as well. REALLY liked the Kentucky Owl and Old Forester B-Day. I'm not sure I'd pay the $125-$150/bottle I've seen for the KO but I'd definitely have another glass if I saw it on the menu. I've been on an Old Forester kick for the last few months (especially with the 1897 and 1920) and wasn't disappointed at all with the B-Day, my only issue with it is that I can't find it at any of the stores that I shop at...might have to talk to Earl's bourbon guy! The EH Taylor was very good, pretty smooth and a little spicy which I like. Blanton's was the only one I tried that I've had before so it was what I expected it to be and enjoyed it as much as I have before. The Stagg Jr was probably my favorite of the five (B-Day was a very close second), it definitely has a kick to it but I thought it was still pretty smooth and I liked the spicy/caramelly flavor. I paid $39 for the flight which I didn't think was all that bad, the price is based on the $/glass of the bourbons that you choose, I did consider adding Pappy's instead of Blanton's but the $130 a glass for the 15-year was probably going to bump the price up to a little more than I wanted to pay.
  14. That was my plane, had to make a Round Rock Donuts run...
