  1. this topic reminds me what I learned in the years that I worked in the golf business and hung around the GC superintendent, it was fascinating stuff, I learned a lot about aeration, top dressing and overseeding, really got into the different grasses being used by architects like Nicklaus, Greg Norman and of course Ben Crenshaw-Bill Coore, especially in different parts of the country
  2. so Riley has directly caused 4starting QBs to transfer, Rattler and Williams at OU and now Dart and Kedon Slovis at USC....its no secret where Williams is going now, guess the National LOI means squat nowadays
  3. Texas over the years has two fan bases...the fair weather front runner kind that runs to Wal Mart to load up on UT swag when the team is winning and especially during the VY National Championship years, and then your dyed in the wool bleed burnt orange come hell or high water and expects conference championships and runs at a NY6 bowl game or back in the day a BCS bowl game right now both fan bases are lost, the hard core Texas fan is livid that the prospect of a losing season is a real possibility and the ridicule from Aggie fans, Techsters , and most of all Boomer Sooner nation is more than they care to contemplate...the fair weather fan is quick to jump on the Lynch mob pitch fork mentality because in many ways they are sheeple and easily influenced and swayed by the current status quo Sark will pull out of this dumpster fire because unlike the previous admins he has a better understanding of what it takes to build and maintain the elite National program...Strong might have been UM's DC but it was evident he reached his ceiling as a coordinator...TH had lots of media buzz but when the rubber hit the road his teams underperformed If UT fans can show some patience Sark can bring an exciting brand of football back to the Forty Acres, but one of the areas that never gets talked about is Texas recruiting, that needs to change and it needs to change this year...the 3 star and 4 star athlete just aint good enough anymore, we need All State bonafide blue chippers, we need a few Under Armour All American types and it sure wouldn't hurt to have an Elite 11 signal caller having UT on his short list of schools he wants to attend
  4. IMO last year's woke culture assault on the University did more harm than the product they put on the field...Parents and players dont want that social justice activism at the school, they just want to play their sport...it hurt the TEXAS brand more than anything, right now UT is NOT the cool place to attend..winning and winning big can change that
  5. Bijan has a dislocated elbow, will miss the rest of the season according to 24/7 sports
  6. Sark has brought a very good offensive scheme to town...he inherited a team with two inexperienced QB's, one of whom is a gamer but not the most accurate, the other with a very good accurate arm but seems to be turnover prone..we would have NEVER seen this offensive outburst with the last 3 HC's unfortunately Sark entrusted that his hand picked DC and staff would cover his backside while he concentrated on bringing the new greatest show on turf to town..they have failed him miserably, he has to bite his tongue for now because as the HC is is ultimately responsible for everything they put on the field, and throwing PK and staff under the bus at this stage of the season would be a very bad look.. where we learn about Sark is how he handles the results at the end of the season..if he does nothing, he is fooling himself, if he makes major changes then it shows me he knows where he made his mistake We have not faced an elite QB this season, but we have made a few teams offenses look like world beaters
  7. not only NO but HELL NO bring back Mushchamp, he will kick some tails and break some hearts, but he will also put guys in the NFL
  8. The 3-2 is a prevent defense, it prevents you from winning, what is There to protect ? All the team that beat us have pounded the rock not air raided us, the defense is designed to keep the ball in front of you and not get beat deep, but we are giving up huge yardage ahead of our defenders before someone comes up to make the stop. You want to protect your corners, get a better pass rush and make them think you can bring the house whenever you want. This defense plays soft and reacts. I would rather take my chances with a defense that attacks and causes turnovers , mistakes and creates opportunities
  9. I have been a DC Pete K apologist all year but he has lost me, his inability to change his base defense from the 3-2-5 2 high safety scheme and getting shredded every game has got me thinking that Sark need to shop for a new DC, even Manny D wasn't this bad... I also think Hudson Card has played his way into the QB dog house with only one way to go and thats the transfer portal, I won't blame him for the blindside fumble but the Pick Six was a back breaker that we never recovered from, you cant make that kind of mistake coming off a turnover this team showed some balls coming back, but the unsportsmanlike penalty was inexcusable especially in OT, and why PK didnt bring the house still has me scratching my head kinda ashamed of this team, to get beat at home by a KU team that was a 30 pt underdog is unacceptable, not from a betting standpoint but because KU doesnt deserve to be on the field with UT on paper and the Horns made them look like world beaters Sark is burning his political capital like a pimp burning C Notes...his hand picked staff has some dead weight cronies that need to go down the road
  10. thats the type of play/route you would have never seen the last couple of years....good throw
  11. I thought he named him as the starter on Friday afternoon ?
  12. Honest Q was there a reason given for the last second change ? thats Sark's call but to tell you QB he is starting and then tell him he's not but to sit and be ready to play is really messing with his psyche
  13. the way Aranda explained it was it was one of the tie beaker criteria, point differential...you decide, it sure wasn't the point spread or the over/under
  14. so now CT11 is starting....is Sark trying to push HC to the transfer portal? I have no problem with CT at QB but if you name the starting QB only to change your mind (even if it is your prerogative as head coach ) less that a few hours before kick off is messing with a players mind set
  15. I will go with the oddsmakers this week Texas and the Under so UT 45 Kansas 10
  16. that leads me to believe CT will need a medical procedure on the thumb at the end of the season if not sooner...he really hasnt done anything to lose the job so that make me lean towards a medical issue and they dont want to risk any further damage, which is the smart and prudent route to take..
  17. you bring up a very good point that was discussed on the Herd with Joel Klatt yesterday, they didnt mention UT by name but Cowherd alluded to the fact that some programs are 3 year rebuilds and some are six year rebuilds, they used Nebraska as an example of a six year rebuild. I think you are spot on that WE are a three year rebuild, Sark needs 3 great recruiting classes to get some play makers and guys willing to drink his kool aid and the BMD, CDC, and all of us fans need to bite our tongues and roll with the punches...not saying we cant turn it around next year but it will take a GREAT class and the stars will have to align and a few breaks go our way and then who knows
  18. NEXT YEAR , we haven't even completed year one and you are projecting that UT will be worse than they are now ? and you call yourself a fan. What is your problem with Sark ?
  19. just because some reporter(s) put Sark on a hot seat list does NOT make it a fact...its an Op Ed click bait website....they like you have an axe to grind when it comes to Sark and their opinion, much like yours has no fact to back it up, whatever contempt you have for Sark from Day 1 has lost you all objectivity on the troubles that plague UT football...either learn to deal with it or move on, because you have a real tendency to kill the vibe in what should be a UT fan friendly site... You can hate Sark all you like, but fair weather fans like yourself that want to get the rope and string him up and run him out of town after 8 games are part of the problem with UT athletics, thats the culture that needs to be changed
  20. you are delusional if you think Sark is in the hot seat after ONE year....Del Conte and the BMD's knew they bought into the TH hype (actually can lay that on Mike Perrine) and to some extent Mack B...TH also sold himself very well, but when you look back at his resume, from grad assistant to the HC on the 40 Acres in how many years, hey I admit I drank the kool aid too..but Sark has been on National Champion staffs, he learned at the foot of Nick S. He knows what it takes to build a winner...As long as CDC is in charge he will give Sark time to either produce or hang himself...CDC has shown that he is a very good evaluator of coaching talent, look how quickly that the baseball and hoops teams have become National powers without his meddling...I think he will do the same with FB
  21. The portal could work to our advantage, because incoming players know they can play right away. We may lose a QB and maybe even a RB but the purge has to happen
