  1. Although Lincoln Riley is certainly a draw for recruits, I wonder if the possibility of playing in the far flung B1G will push some players away from USC and UCLA.
  2. I think as a general rule, if a younger player is good enough to take the job from a veteran player, the team, almost by definition, improves at that position. Therefore, by this logic (if it is logical) I hope all the freshmen become starters. That was easy. Root for the freshmen to take over.
  3. Perhaps he was seeing football as a possible career choice and now he realizes he needs to start concentrating on other areas of study. Football is very time consuming if you want to study engineering, pre-med or any rigorous academic field.
  4. Seems like for the PAC12 and Big12 to have the most successful merger, they both need to give up their less attractive members to forge an overall stronger conference. Neither seems to be willing to do that at this time.
  5. l hope the next round of TV contracts are short term so that somebody can come up with an overall plan before a disjointed mess gets locked in for the next 30 years.
  6. I'm not sure Ash was such a kamikaze until Mack told him he needed to be tougher. Anyway it seems like I remember it that way.
  7. Hey now! I know zackly what school Arch is going to cause I have a robo-"fly on the wall" with a tiny little microphone and video camera on his back listenin in on every Manning family comfab with all them sittin around and whisperin and plottin. But I ain't telling cause it could compromise my secrete source. At least I knew up until yesterday when somebody hit my little "bug" with a fly swatter and so things maybe changed since then.
  8. Hell, Shakespeare don't even talk right. Those Brits shudder learn to talk American by now. I'd rather make money only playin ball than have to take a fern language class by a man in pantaloons and a little pointy beard.
  9. 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.
  10. Please no concussion during the spring game. I wonder if they will be wearing those padded helmet caps.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Somebody may have an offer he can't refuse.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. I like the sound of Brennan Marian's voice and his look on the field in that clip. Great demeanor.
  22. 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.
  23. Seton Hall 64 - Texas 60. Close, exciting game to listen to.
