  1. Clumsy draft. Needs work. Withdraw for now. Was about a 12-team playoff-bowl system I once devised.
  2. What QB in college or NFL in past 20 years has a quicker release and better trajectory than Thompson? There's the total game to learn, but if I own an NFL team this is my guy soon as I can get him.
  3. Agree 100 percent. I just wrote a lot more but will erase and leave it at that.
  4. Thank you Sir, for explanation. I’ve been out of the loop lately. Hook’em.
  5. I notice 247Sports says 4 Stars. Giving Horns just one 5-star recruit #9 National Class.
  6. ESPN this hour showing 2109 class ranking 1. Alabama 2. Georgia 3. A&M 4. OU 5. Horns saying first time three schools from same conference the top 3 Colin Cowherd would point out that all 5 programs are in the south, in warm-weather climates. He constantly points out the recruiting advantage of climate and this swath from the south across Texas. I would point out that three of these five are Cotton Bowl - SWC - Big12 landscape; in, and hovering above, the greatest state for football.
  7. What was that Sam yelled out in the Sugar Bowl...
  8. Alright Alright Alright!! Hook'em Welcome to the 40 Acres, Bru!!
  9. Beating Georgia. And the way it was done. That was big. Exclamation point. Keeping all the coaches. VERY big. Trajectory. All of the above.
  10. Well stated, and a tribute to the class of all that is Texas and Burnt Orange.
  11. Saw this earlier today. Destiny and a hand of fate has appeared in the sky with a Hook'em, admist Burnt Orange sunsets to the west... Make it so!
  12. Unrelated b-ball .... re: this Sat night ESPN, 6pm, #1Duke - #4UVA game. ... "Lucky" students are camped out in tents beside Cameron field house from now to Feb 20 home game with UNC. So today ESPN crew filmed K-Ville where the tents are, and my daughter's tent got featured! Only she had class and research lab, so texted me that just her sleeping bag and friends got in the clip. I'll be looking for my priceless REI air mattress I "loaned" her (if I ever get it back). Was said on Cowherd this week, or maybe was the Big Monday broadcast of the Duke-Syracuse game, that Coach K was only a .500 coach at Army before going to Duke. You never know how the fit will turn out. Texas needs to land whatever works for the long haul. I didn't get inside Cameron when I was there, but did attend a parents' buffet in a banquet hall next door, above Duke's trophy room where the 5 titles were displayed and literally a wall of Player of the Year recognitions. Decades of effort and accomplishments. Same as football here. Texas needs to think long-term and consistency, year in and year out. If only. ps. Just noticed that Coach K played at Army under Bob Knight... then coached there from 1975-80, so that's how that factored in.
  13. For some reading pleasure... this SEC RANT dot com thread. Wow! Aggie is taking this loss really hard https://www.secrant.com/rant/sec-football/wow-aggie-is-taking-this-loss-really-hard/81302858/
  14. My bold on last 7 words. Accurate, and changed effective this season; pronounced heavily in the Sugar Bowl. To a recruit: if you want to play top level AND be coached well and developed... and same for those lining up beside you -- and live in the top city in the country -- your zip code is 78705.
