  1. As an old softy, I would hope the players who are being pushed off the roster would get a choice to stay at UT with financial help to finish their degree. That may be ill-conceived and or even illegal, but it would be nice for players who had been giving good effort but were poorly evaluated initially.
  2. Please no concussion during the spring game. I wonder if they will be wearing those padded helmet caps.
  3. Maybe athletic departments will eventually sever legal ties to universities so they can incorporate with BMD's as major stock holders. The independent league can then negotiate with a players' union and set salary caps. If not, NIL has no limits other than the deep pockets of billionaires who really like their football.
  4. Interesting. Thanks. I hope all of those N/A's on the right have to be filled with home-and-home power 5 opponents and not patty-cakes.
  5. Somebody may have an offer he can't refuse.
  6. I have trouble understanding what an "non-commitable offer" is as well, so it works both ways. Trying to look like you're saying something without saying anything.
  7. It feels like Perkins may be seeking NIL opportunities. If UT can't get him, at least the cost to A&M or Florida may have to go up. I think next year a lot of 5 star guys may put off final commitment until February.
  8. My Mickey Mantle story: I was about 12 I guess, and my friends and I bowled in a kids league at the Mickey Mantle Bowling Alley in Dallas. We won the league and Mickey asked us our name and autographed a baseball for each of us. My mother sold the ball at a church bazaar, but only after she asked me if she could. I wish I still had it but I've had two home burglaries over the years so it probably would be long gone by now anyway.
  9. It seems to me like with the current rules of max 7 extra spots from the portal, if many teams have more than 7 entering the portal, there will be more players in the portal than there will be spots (desirable or not) to go to. Maybe I'm not seeing this correctly.
  10. I'm an old coot so for me the best times for college football came before national recruiting. Only Notre Dame recruited nationally. A team from Texas had mostly Texas kids. Same was true for USC, Alabama, Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan. Of course, some loser teams like OU and Arkansas had to recruit Texas but most schools recruited in-state players. That way there was more than school pride. There was regional pride as well. There was less cross conference play and much more unpredictability as well. That was one reason bowl games were more meaningful.
  11. I think Marion has developed an offensive scheme (Go-Go) which has impressed a lot of people. Sark may be very interested in that as well.
  12. I buy Earl Campbell's Hot Link sausage. It's extra tender, fully cooked and tastes great. Why not Ricky Williams' Real Wellness products as well?
  13. I like the sound of Brennan Marian's voice and his look on the field in that clip. Great demeanor.
  14. I think it would be good if the whole team got the same NIL deal that the OL got this year. It's not good for some team groups to be getting deals that other groups can not get. Then if some can get individual NIL money because they are more famous, you can't stop that. Of course I'm not spending the big bucks, so it's easy for me to say.
