    I’m underwhelmed

    If either or both hudson card and casey thompson remain at Texas they sill still be the best quarterback on opening day

    I hope Sark is able to resist the pressure to start Ewers sooner rather than breaking him in gradually

    I am more excited by the OL 5* recruits because no pocket passer can survive or thrive without protection

    the better the protection the better the offense no matter who the QB is

    and it goes without saying that we need a couple of dominating defensive line players also

    all of which MIGHT allow Texas to compete for a Big 12 championship next year



    I disagree with the assessment that Casey and Hudson are the better options.  Ewers just spent nearly a year in a CFB strength and conditioning program, he's fresh, and has legit arm talent.  I also think he may have the better football IQ of the three.  But, lets not leave out the project in Murphy.  Spring will be fun.

    I'm not/can't blame him on cashing in when the money showed itself (dude made nearly 2 million to hang out).  Had the UIL fixed their issue with the NIL, Ewers would have been the SL QB this Fall.


    I'd rather have him on campus fighting for the job than wondering what if....

    Everyone has been gripping about Texas is getting left behind on the NIL,  but I would imagine that CDC has a team research this from every angle.  I don’t picture him as a guy that is going to go off half cocked and just start throwing money around.  He’s also a guy that I see as someone who once he gets a handle on it, then moving forward he will be one of the top players on getting this done.  He’s not a guy that’s going to sit around and get smoked on this.  He’s getting some stuff going now and moving forward we’ll be on top of this.  I’m going to be interested to see how this class finishes out and what Sark does in the portal.  We’re all in agreement that we need to see improvement starting next year. 

    Yes, there is an NIL compliance department that all of this stuff has to get by before it's announced.

    I’m intrigued about Ewers as a “pied piper”. He had ridiculous HS stats and I saw a video of him throwing a football the length of the field. His game film is pretty good but not earth shattering so I’m not real sure how good he is. I do know prior to skipping his Sr year a lot of the 2022 kids seemed ready to follow him at his school of choice. The possible recruiting ramifications makes me want him to be a Horn. 

    He could have been a leader in the class.  I can tell you that the Southlake kids didn't miss a beat with his departure, nor did they raise much of a fuss.  Ewers has a arm talent.
