  1. Undeniably Nick Saban is #1 in the recently released rankings - Coach rankings: Urban Meyer leads the chase to dethrone Nick Saban as the top coach in college football - NCAA Football - Sporting News Mack Brown is listed at #39 which I find absurd. A logic lesson: If there are 38 coaches in college football than Mack, are there 38 more appealing schools than Texas? No. Coach should be ranked in the top 20 on the sheer merit of what he has accomplished in his tenure at Texas. The top 10: 1. Nick Saban 2. Urnab Meyer 3. Chris Petersen 4. Bob Stoops 5. Brian Kelly 6. Steve Spurrier 7. David Shaw 8. Pat Fitzgerald 9. Les Miles 10. Gary Patterson SMH.
  2. Knox was quoted as saying that he and the Texas program had "grown apart." My question is how do you grow apart from a school that you committed to? Did he expect daily phone calls from Mack? Grown apart? This is all on Knox in my opinion. When you take visits to Ohio State and Oklahoma after your future coach tells you it is not allowed you never respected the program anyway. Let's focus on the guys we have, the recruits that want to play at UT and the future of this program.
  3. Billings' coach said after the Longhorns switched from recruiting him as an O-Lineman to a defensive tackle that Texas shot up the chart. It appears that Texas might be his #1 school. Billings is a 4 star recruit and was thought to like Baylor and TCU over Texas but this was primarily because of the OL recruitment by UT. Nice to see Mack and company letting kids play the positions they played in high school instead of trying to turn kids into somethings they have no interest in playing.
  4. Texas apparently is attacking OU's commits. The Longhorns offered OU commit WR Austin Bennett from Manvel High School today. It is certainly the 11th hour but give the staff credit for trying to add value to the 2013 class.
  5. Texas extended an offer last week to Peyton Barber, 4-star RB from Alpharetta, GA. Barber is scheduled to visit Austin this weekend. He committed to Ole Miss last July and is only interested in Texas as another possible option. This is a Larry Porter recruit so you know he is solid.
  6. He looks 16 she looks like a supermodel. Something is wrong here.
  7. Porter was named National Recruiter of the Year by Rivals.com in 2007 & 2009. I say bring him to Austin.
  8. An assistant role suits him better. His head coaching shot at Memphis did not go so well but he would be a good recruiter too. Knows the talent in Texas and Southeast region.
  9. Don't think Texas loses by 50 at home but doubt they pull off the upset. I find it excruciating that the NCAA has willfully disregarded this young man's status as a student-athlete.
  10. First day of early signing was today and Jake Raulerson and JUCO commit Geoff Swaim both signed just around an hour ago. Raulerson and Swaim will enroll learly and start at UT in January. Hook'em Horns!
  11. Legitimate point. Doubtful there are any in-house candidates that could step in and do the job.
  12. Justin Wells from ETSN & Horn Sports is the first guy I heard Mack's name from and it appears Mr. Wells was correct when he said to watch out for this kid. He also said Daylon would receive a Texas offer sooner rather than later and he did! Received the offer today and became the first 2015 recruit to receive a scholarship offer for Texas. Mack is a defensive tackle from Gladewater High School, 310 lbs., 6'2" and is BIG, quick and really good. This is a big offer for Texas and undoubtedly Mack has another few years left in high school but expect this kid to receive offers from every school in the state and many beyond. He is THAT good.
  13. Maryland and Rutgers are gone B10 and Bowlsby and Deloss need to quickly shift the mindset to "we ARE going to be a leage that WILL expand" so let's start plannng the best and worst scenarios for the conference now. They can be content with 10 teams but the almighty television dictates otherwise. Lets look for the teams that are in a precarious position - teams that we know are squirming right now because of the uncertainty in the ACC. FSU is team #1 in that category. Get a deal done with the Noles and bring on Clemson or Louisville. At least get up to 12 so we aren't forced to throw a 6 team packages together at the 11th hour when we need 16.
  14. Hutchinson Community College Linebacker De'Vondre Campbell received an offer from Texas. He is a big, fast kid who had committed to Tennessee and was thought to be solid to the other UT. Word has it he is going to visit Austin and likes Texas. Derek Dooley's firing in Knoxville might lead to recruits moving elsewhere, especially if Tennessee doesn't get the right guy in the seat. Campbell is 6-5 and 220 lbs and would immediately step in at OLB and help.
  15. Unless the odds are extremely tempting I would not bet on this Texas team this year. Much too erratic to give even the Vegas oddsmakers any real chances at predicting.
  16. Yeah, he sure as hell did. You know what thought,? At least Stoops has that going for him (beating us). More than we can say about Mack.
  17. If you have not been following the Texas recruits, it is not a good story from the health perspective. UT commits have experienced injury like I have never seen before - and I am not counting RSJ's injury in the equation. Here are the injuries that have plagued Texas recruits. Down and Out: Jacorey Warrick - Out for the season w/a knee injury. Had surgery. Erik Huhn - Ripped up his ACL (he was one of the first recruits injured). Darius James - Broke his foot Deoundrei Davis - ACL injury Down for several games Tyrone Swoopes - Out for the season w/a knee injury. Had surgery. These injuries are unfortunate but ALL of these players should be back healthy and at 100% when they sign with UT on NSD.
  18. Fort Worth SWHS wide receiver and Baylor commit Robbie Rhoades is not 100% sure about Baylor and is apparently weighing all of his options. The Longhorns reached out to Rhoades again after deciding to drop pursuit of RSJ. Also, remember Lancaster DE Daeshon Hall who flipped and committed to Washington? He is taking other visits and Texas is not completely out of the picture yet. Hall was considered a strong Huskie favorite but recently made the comment that the Horns are still a viable option for him. After being officially "unrecruited" by Texas, Sealy product Ricky Seals-Jones has scratched the Longhorns off of his list and named Texas A&M and LSU as his leaders. Look for many recruits to be at the West Virginia game in Austin on October 6, including Chevoski Collins, Cole Luke and many already committed players.
  19. I am posting this because the paywall whores are keeping it to themselves which I find ridiculous. Torii Hunter Jr., Prosper, TX WR will be visiting DKR this weekend for the Lobos game. Hunter has a lot of offers already but he does not hold one from UT. Hunter is a very good WR and has a lot of interest in Alabama and Arkansas, both of which he has offers from.
  20. Officials: UT, ESPN working 'very, very hard' to land a LHN deal I doubt a deal gets done before this weekend or this season. Fans should brace themselves for a potential 3rd game to be shown on the Network though..........................
  21. Ward could play wide receiver or defensive back. He is a good kid and a real team player. He has the mentality of a winner and will contribute positively in whatever position he plays at Houston.
  22. The Alabama vs. Michigan game can hurt the University of Texas recruiting efforts this weekend. Only Marcell Harris and K.D. Cannon will be attending the Texas vs. Wyoming game (with Cannon's visit being unofficial). Why? A lot of the offerees and commits are going to Cowboy stadium to watch the Tide play the Wolverines. It is certainly a big stage that yields two high profile programs and this could change a player's mind in a heartbeat about where to play college ball. You love to see games like this in our part of the country but be careful what you ask for. Still a possibility some other guys will show up in Austin on Friday or Saturday but most commits are waiting for the West Virginia game to take their official visit to Austin.
  23. This from Deloss Dodds yesterday regarding Brown's job security after going 13-12 in the past 2 seasons Mack is going nowhere.
  24. Mack announced on twitter that two walk-on kids have been awarded scholarships for the season - long snapper Nate Boyer and holder Cade McCrary. Boyer is a 30 year old Army veteran and McCrary was a wide receiver at Lake Travis. McCrary's dad Hardee was an assistant coach to Mack Brown and resigned after the 2003 season and went on to work for the Longhorn Foundation. It is always nice to see hard working guys get scholarships.
  25. The Junta at Texas will let Mack hang around until he's ready to leave. They feel he's earned the right.
