  1. Isn't there a limit on transfers? I believe this is number 3
  2. Huh??? I am waiting for one more very special announcement, but I expect it will be February.
  3. I do not want to see dynasty #2 at Georgia, which is why I was rooting for Alabama (and it was hard). Saban will always get his regardless of the loss.
  4. Thanks TFloss. Tech has been busy with their 2024 offers!
  5. Well the Twitter is by a Northwestern alumnus who is now at UT as assistant CB coach. There is a connection.
  6. I trust in Sark, but does anyone know if Marion has successfully developed more people than Addison? Trying to figure out if it is the player that would succeed regardless of the coach, or the coach correcting issues that made Addison blossom (or both). The offensive improvement can be due to so many reasons that it is hard to tell. Was it the OC, the line, the qb, etc.
  7. I agree, the OL is going to be great. Just not sure it is next year when these freshmen will be going against people with 3-4 years of extra weight training and practices. However, technique matters and I do think it will be an upgrade of a couple spots and much needed depth. What also has me super excited is that the new freshman line will produce the foundation for a great line for the future that should eliminate a reason for Manning to reject us. Not saying he will pick us, it just helps equalize the more established lines of Alabama, Georgia, etc. as these signees will be RS Fresh or Sophomores by the time Manning hits the field. We also have more OL signees than spots so it will be interesting to see how well Flood can keep them.
  8. Well said. Hopefully every has a healthy and Merry Christmas.
  9. Well use some of your non-scholarship players. Sorry you had so many people declare early for the draft and decide to bail. So you don't have 11 players or even 22 out of 85 not including non-scholarship? Yeah, 8-5 would look bad.
  10. I believe he is referring to Brennan Marion, the WR coach at Pitt, who has been rumored to be a candidate for Coleman's former job.
  11. I don't think that is a fair comment at all. He was a competitor all year, gave his all and played through an injured thumb. We wouldn't have been as competitive without him this last year, yet he got plenty of criticism from many fans. If you saw the photos of his thumb and thought about the difficulty of stepping up and playing, but not getting the support from the fans, most people would likely leave. I don't believe for a moment that he is afraid of quarterback competition. My hats off to the guy and I thank him
  12. Liucci is reporting it so he can say what a bargain A&M is getting with their new extension
  13. Agree. What I find confusing is the offer list. This can be a function of not having the resources/coaching to guide you through the process. I can't gauge the highlights either, but was it inferior competition? How did the world miss it? I am glad the coaches are not being lazy and checking (although likely a referral), but we have been stung before by unknowns that did not work, as well as others, like Colt that obviously did. At this point, I trust the coaches. Time will tell
  14. I really hope this is not true. At the moment, it seems way too much and I would rather see it spread around or saved for next year. I also hope Texas is smart enough to not pay it all up-front. We need a jump start to get back, but our fund isn't half a billion so one guy getting $3 seems out of whack. It is not like he started at OSU.
  15. Kate is pretty hot here. Must be the steam from that pan on the stove. I'm sure everyone noticed it as well.
  16. My thoughts exactly. We led for multiple people but they haven't wanted to pull the trigger. I know some want to announce at the all-American bowls, but it seems to me they aren't that solid to us if they are constantly checking out others.
  17. While I agree a lot of blame is on the defense, don't forgot two fumbles were cause by an inept left OT that led to short field touchdowns. Agreed the defense didn't stop them thereafter, but the offense led to 21 of the 49 points by Kansas in regulation if you add Card's pick six.
  18. Just because there were better players in the portal does not mean that they had interest in us. Look at Oregon OL guy this year. He had already decided on BYU before he entered. There are other good teams that they may want to play for that could also be closer to home. While we have the best University and a great head coach, doesn't mean we can win them all
  19. I agree, it is a bit of a paradox. Bo was hired away from UT to join Saban and only left due to recruiting issues and was hired by the NFL. Definitely a good recruiter as shown by the class so it all points to a good coach, but the DL was an issue with no penetration. I don't have the coaching knowledge to discern what the issue was with the line, but seeing his rant on the bus, have to believe it is more the players rather than Bo forgetting how to coach overnight.
  20. The biggest difference on the offense is Sark's desire to have speed at the WR versus Herman's preference for size. Herman liked WR that had the size to block for the run game, but could not get open and are going for the jump ball. Aside from DD, who was a decoy running downfield for three years until they moved him from the slot, Herman wasn't going after Lamb and Hollywood and it showed, but Sark wants run/pass balance in the offense unlike the Pirate who threw 60 passes per game because he couldn't get the talent to Lubbock. Haven't a clue about defense. The talk was aggressive, but 7yards off the line by DB is not aggressive or shows slow DBs relative to the WR.
  21. Don't forget that Coaches, including Riley, use these searches as opportunities to raise their own contracts. I agree, I don't see Riley leaving, but would expect a raise at OU would finalize that. Happens all the time.
  22. it appears JD you just want to post negativity and stir the pot. If that isn't a troll i don't know what is. Bench our Heisman worthy RB without a line to start three other RBs? We have rotated TE. Where did you get your football knowledge at A&M or OU? I can ignore your posts, but when you start posting worthless threads, i question the moderators. I am fine with constructive criticism, but i just see negative BS. This team would be worse with Herman and I for one am happy to have Sark. Herman couldn't get any of the top lineman in TX in a year full of them except Hayden and he wasn't ranked the best of the bunch. No wonder we have issues. We wouldn't have Worthy either. Your arm chair quarterbacking is so off you either don't know football or again, are a troll so go be bored somewhere else. Most of us are disappointed with the performance to date, you must be enjoying it. Have you not noticed they are stacking the line to stop the run. Hello, don't need a different RB.
  23. Great start to the class. Welcome aboard Jamel !!!!
