H-town Horn's Achievements

  1. Hard for me to say since I was only able to watch about 2 games on TV last year. But .500 is a probably a good goal for this team and anything less than 90 losses would indicate progress. Sigh...
  2. This. Chamber of Commerce weather in Houston this weekend. 72, a nice breeze, and around 50% humidity. The weather is absolutely intolerable for about 4-5 months but if you think this is hot then you really may want to consider another relocation.
  3. My experience one on one with aggy has usually been pretty good. It's only when 2 or more of them have gathered that I start having problems. I guess their cult mentality starts kicking in. This said I have never carpooled with one. Could spell trouble.
  4. Yikes, I'm sure I'd need more than a couple Tylenol after knee replacement surgery! My neighbor had that a couple years ago and I heard the rehab can be pretty rough.
  5. Good deal! Looks like you're on track to come up with some concoction that works! You can play w/ the dose of Benadryl and figure out what does it for you.
  6. The active ingredient in the "PM" part of Tylenol PM is exactly the same as Benadryl. Diphenhydramine HCI 25 mg. Unless your husband needs the Tylenol for pain or fever reduction then he can accomplish the same thing with Benadryl (or Wal-Dryl which is the generic equivalent at Walgreens) at a much lower cost.
  7. I take half a Benadryl every night. Go to bed, read a bit, and usually start nodding off about 20-30 minutes later. It takes the edge off a bit, and also if I wake up in the middle of the night it makes it easier to get right back to sleep). No side effects in the morning (if I take a whole one I may feel a little sluggish for the first couple hours, which is why I take half; and I'm 6'1" 195). I asked my doctor if there were any negatives with this regimen and his said Benadryl is one of the "safest", non problem-causing things you can take. Also very cheap. Also if you look at the active ingredient of all these Zquil-type drugs it is exactly the same as Benadryl. Exactly. I've also found that if I am exercising that I sleep much, much better. I have NOT been exercising lately, for which I have a variety of excuses, but I sleep night and day better (no pun intended) when I exercise. Last thing, beware of just popping some herb or other "natural" substance under the assumption that it must be good for you. Anything you put into your body will have some affect, sometimes positive but also sometimes negative, particularly over a prolonged period of time. Melatonin is one such example. So if you do decide to take something you definitely want to read up on it and then stay in-tune with the affect it is having on your body. This is essentially one of the reasons I've stuck with Benadryl; it has been around forever and there is a ton of data on effects. Not so much with a lot of the "natural" stuff. And I say this as someone that is all about "natural" remedies if one can be had. But just saying you have to be just as careful with that, or at least as vigilant, as would with any other drug.
  8. Exactly how I felt before I had my own kid. Now I'm a a natural. Heh.
  9. Strong and Mack Brown is like oil vs. vinegar. It's laughable to think that anyone thought we would NOT lose some recruits. Remind me not to get stuck in a foxhole with some of you guys. Geez.
  10. You seem to feel that the days of Texas being able to recruit 4 and 5 stars are over. Why?
  11. Amen. It's baffling to read all the hand-wringing up here about how Texas doesn't have enough talent. Been reading this garbage for years. Meanwhile teams like WVU, K-State, Okie State, Baylor, and TCU have been hitting us in the mouth. Is there anyone who will seriously argue than any of these teams have more talent than us? On paper or otherwise? The rub on Texas has always been that the talent was not always getting coached up. That's because we had a great CEO and recruiter but not a nuts and bolts coach. Now we have a true "football coach", and if history is any indication a great recruiter who just needs some time (i.e. more than 3-4 weeks) to build relationships here in Texas. We are going to be fine. The kids that are here are going to want to be here, they're going to be hard workers, they're going to be tough, and all this is going to manifest itself on the field. But it's not going to happen overnight.
  12. Agree 100%. Can't get too worked up about this class. Mack and Strong are night and day different and so no surprise that some are going to walk away (especially when according to CBS Mack actually encouraged them to explore other opportunities). But you could not have put it better when you said that winning will be Strong's currency. By the end of 2014 we need to see solid signs that things are going in the right direction, perhaps not in record (8-4 is a worst case for me) but in our attitude on the field. We should be able to see what this program can become by next November. If things do not seem on track by that point then we may be looking for a new coach (and AD) to start 2016. But Strong knows what's at stake. He's going to put his heart into this, which is all one can ask. I'm very optimistic.
  13. With all due respect, do we really have to rehash all of this? I mean, we just completed 6+ week gauntlet of this sort of analysis. I have no idea if Strong was the best hire, time will tell, but we are where we are so lets focus on today. I for one am excited about the future and the coming culture change. I think Texas is going to be tough again, and it's been a long, long time since we've been able to say that.
  14. First, invites were likely made weeks in advance. You don't "uninvite" them (for many obvious reasons) Second, from all that's been written I don't know how one could say that Mack didn't have every intent to coach in 2014. I too don't like how it all went down but I believe this particular accusation is warrantless.
