  1. For those not keeping up with Ryder Cup... Unfortunately, JT didn't make the putt and they lost to Sergio and Rahmbo. But still, ridiculous shot.
  2. Good old Sweaty Gary and his scorched earth recruiting tactics. I'm not going to miss you when we go to the SEC.
  3. From what I've read, it seems like Karic has the true mean streak out of all the linemen. We need that on this line.
  4. Yeah, I can't think of anyone on here that trashed the kid and said he should transfer. And SHA is right, Card is one play away from being right back in the thick of it. Just do the same thing Casey did. Stay engaged, work hard, and be ready when your number is called.
  5. When it comes to sports commentary, those two places are straight up troll farms.
  6. Also, that Colorado game wasn't a blowout when Casey came in. We were only up 17-10 at halftime and the offense looked pretty stagnant at times during the first half. We outscored Colorado 38-13 in the second half. I'm not saying Casey was facing a great team, but I think he deserves a little more credit for that game considering how the first half went.
  7. Also, looks like Green Bay made a huge mistake. Rodgers doesn't want to be there, and this season for them has all the potential for a toxic dramafest. They should have traded him, got the picks, and set the table for Love.
  8. Yeah, I think we're going to learn a lot about Sark in the next couple of games. Hudson has more of the skillset Sark would want for his offense. With Casey at the helm, can he adapt and call plays that highlight Casey's skillset? Please, dear God, let this be a competent coach that can adapt.
  9. I hear you on actual time on the field, but are you saying there's no value in spending those additional years in a college program, watching film, reps in practice, etc? There's value in that. I don't want to speak for @J.B. TexasEx, but I think that's part of what he's saying in comparing their classifications. As for the playbook, you have to scheme to the talent on the roster. This is one thing that has driven me nuts with the recent coaches we've had. Stop trying to shove a square peg into a round hole. Over time, you can recruit the players you need to run your ideal offense. But when you walk into a new job, you have to work with what's on the roster. Any competent coach will do that. To that end, you have to let Casey be Casey. Considering the terrible O-line play so far, you have to let him use his legs to get positive yards. Also, that running threat from Casey will hopefully open up things a little more for Bijan. On that note, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree on Bijan not being the best Robinson. I get your frustrations, but he's easily one of, if not the best, offensive weapons we have. If you go back to that first game, there were a number of plays he turned a terrible situation into a highlight. Even the best RBs have a clunker and Arkie was keying in on him. By the time we reach the end of the season, I fully expect him to be one of the best RBs in the nation.
  10. A stat from an ESPN article this morning: Since 2008, Texas has had three offensive linemen selected in the NFL draft, none in the first round. During that span, Alabama had 19 offensive linemen drafted, including eight first-rounders. Even worse, Vanderbilt had six such players drafted since 2008, including one first-rounder.
  11. Lol, I was about to say, can I get some odds on Meyer pulling a Petrino, leaving the Jags before the end of season, and taking the USC job?
  12. They have to mix in some of the younger OL guys and see what they have.
  13. Said this in another thread, but each QB has their flaws. Reports out of practice were Casey had issues throwing INTs and Card had issues taking bad sacks. We've seen the latter play out, and I'm sure Casey's INTs are coming. But like you said above, "Developing a future NFL arm is one thing, but we must win NOW!" Casey is the best fit for the team as currently constituted, especially with the terrible O-line play we're getting. At least at this point, Casey is reacting more and playing on instinct. Not saying Card won't get there, but Casey's been in the program for years even if he hasn't been playing in games. In general, he's more seasoned, working off more knowledge and training, and he feels more confident and sure of himself, which isn't shocking.
