  1. I love the site! The folks here seem like real good people. I'm not going premium just yet, but I'm glad we can still have conversation. Trust me, this is a much better neighbourhood than the juveniles at OB, IMO. Good to be able to converse again HS Nation.
  2. Buona fortuna. Enjoyed the diologue. Just don't think a pay site is worth it.
  3. Just passing this along to any that might have missed it . . . . http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...tants/7258411/
  4. Agreed. I'd like to see "TEXAS" on the front. Otherwise, I like the concept.
  5. Agree on both points. It's just Augie is knocking on eight decades and the offense is inept. I do like Skip. Think they would keep it inside?
  6. Dropping 2 of 3 to Kansas to open B12 play at the Disch no less. Is Garrido good as gone? If so, who to replace? I like the guy at LSU.
  7. Hope this isn't beginning of the end for 2013-14 basketball team. Don't much like our chances against a fired up WVA in rd 1 of B 12. I'm with Whisenant sentiments. Barnes future on the 40 will depend on if the Horns are still playing in three weeks.
  8. True by Spandau Ballet. I'm also pretty damn embarrassed I can spell Spandau Ballet!
  9. Hello Dish! I've been waiting on the shoe to drop between Dish & Direct TV.
  10. Just wanted to offer a hearty birthday greeting to the greatest state in the union! Thems that were born here and other that got here as soon as possible. Native born and transplants alike, aren't you damn proud to be a Texan? Have a blessed day one and all!
  11. True enough, Strong is our coach. He deserves a unified backing. But, if we had a chance at Saban and didn't make it happen, that's simply shame on us, IMO. Regarding the issue of race, I do think it probably factored in to some degree. Though it can't be proven, I think Strong doesn't get the job without Sumlin's success at aNm. But to bring up race as an issue is insulting to Strong, I think. It doesn't really make a difference at this point.
  12. VICTORY or DEATH . . . What a courageous statement. Thank God for all those with the courage to stare pending doom in the face and give it the finger. A hearty Happy Birthday to the greatest state in the union! Long Live Texas!
  13. I totally understand and agree with you. It just baffles me that he retains the longest tenured Mack Brown coach in Bruce Chambers. I think Tim Brewster would have been a good one to go after. Just don't know why Chambers got a pass.
  14. SF, This is the first year for the series. The neat thing is each year will be an entirely different plot, complete with a new cast of characters. If this debut is any indication, this will become a cult classic. I got HBO specifically for the series. My wife strongly urged me. Something about that Matthew character.
  15. Well, just talked to a friend that told me Shipley is no longer with the program. He didn't elaborate. I know it's probably not that big a deal, but I thought he'd be great as a conduit with Texas high school coaches. A quality casuality of the new regime, IMO.
  16. I was hoping someone on the board might know him. Clearly 4n18 had the winning response. Glad he's still around. I think he'll be a huge plus with the Texas high school coaches.
  17. Thought I'd read that Bob Shipley was retained by Strong after letting Patrick Suddes go. I see nothing on the Texas website that indicates he's still working on the 40. Just curious. I've met him and think he's a good guy. I figure if he's no longer on staff here, he may land a head coaching gig in high school.
  18. Not a wise move by the new AD, IMO. What's the point of making the brand more visible in Mexico? Poor choice that could lead to short-term employment on the 40.
  19. Well put together. I've compiled similar groupings, but I used four, 16 team divisions. I actually like yours better simply because you involve eight more schools. I truly believe, and hope, we're heading to a structure like this in the near future.
  20. So deep and dark. Hard to believe we're now halfway through the initial series. Good stuff!
