  1. When you look at schools that make up a conference there are two ways to look at it. The first is how good are the teams that make up the conference from a competition perspective. In this regard the expanded BIG12 is compelling and should enable them to continue as a P5 conferences which was the reason for the expansion. The other way to look at a conference is how many fans each of the schools can attract which drives TV revenue. By this measure all of the BIG12 expansion teams with the exception of BYU make the conference worse not better. Obviously for the SEC TX and 0U is a home run and will result in a bigger per team payout. In the world of highly compensated coaches, NIL and the transfer portal the schools with more money and viewers are going to have a much bigger advantage then they have had leading up to this point. So yes the expanded BIG12 teams are very competitive at this point in time, but I wouldn't expect that to continue.
  2. Staying out of the SEC was hurting us in recruiting and allowed aggy to catch UT in revenue. Moving to the SEC will help the Longhorn brand (both in image and revenue), help in recruiting and give us a much more interesting and compelling schedule. There is zero chance of Texas and 0U reversing course.
  3. Why do you say that? I would think UT & OU would be more motivated for an early exit, so therefore would need to initiate the conversation .
  4. Not so fast on Caleb Williams to USC, or at least if they get him they will need to pay the open market rate. https://news.google.com/articles/CBMiQmh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LnNpLmNvbS9jb2xsZWdlL3VzYy9mb290YmFsbC9jYWxlYi13aWxsaWFtcy1iaWRkaW5nLXdhctIBR2h0dHBzOi8vd3d3LnNpLmNvbS9jb2xsZWdlL3VzYy8uYW1wL2Zvb3RiYWxsL2NhbGViLXdpbGxpYW1zLWJpZGRpbmctd2Fy?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen
  5. We will have more OL talent and depth to work with. It will interesting to see how quickly guys like Banks, Umiozulu,Agbo and hopefully Campbell can make a positive impact. My hope is that as the season progresses these guys will have a huge positive impact on the OL play.
  6. I wonder the same thing. It seems like most schools are losing more then 7 players to the portal. I have not heard about any moves from the ncaa to go beyond the up to 7 extra(one per portal loss) but considering the current environment going beyond 7 would make sense.
  7. It would be interesting to see how they make that work.
  8. If he takes the job or not it will likely results in a salary bump.
  9. My understanding is they have the normal 25, plus 1 extra carry over from last year plus the 7, so 33. The only way to get past that to 36 are grey shirts( promise of scholarship next year) or preferred walk ons. I think the current NIL arrangements they have are only for scholarship players, so any payments to anyone beyond the 33 would need to be individual or new NIL arrangements. It's likely only a matter of time before the big money programs figure out how to pay top players to be preferred walk ons.
  10. Sounds like there are only 3 more portal openings. Assuming we get Billingsley that leaves 2. I'm thinking they take another reciever and an edge rusher, best case we get Sanders and Mario Williams.
  11. Hard to know how it played out but it could be a case of the squeeky wheel getting the NIL money.
  12. With top flight guys entering the portal after early signing day it makes it much more difficult for coaches to figure how many spots to leave open to optimal their roster. It also seems like with the current rules of max 7 extra spots from portal exits that there will be more players entering the portal then there are desirable spots. It will be interesting to see how this process evolves.
  13. Lol,as I recall that was to make room for a 3 star.
  14. My understanding is they had one carry over. So that would allow 26+7=33. Either they have more then one carry over or they are talking about using grey shirts(delayed scholarship) or maybe he is counting preferred walk ons. In the world of NIL it seems like only a matter of time before preferred walk ons at a school like Texas are paid well enough to attract athletes that could get scholarships at other programs.
  15. Do you think we have any chance with Earnest Greene?
