  1. Time will tell but my guess is the NIL will make it harder for the smaller fan base teams to compete against the blue bloods in recruiting. When competing for recruites against similar types of programs I wouldn't think differences in NIL money wouldn't be as big a factor as the traditional recruiting factors. Texas will have to make sure that our NIL deals are at least as good as the competition. It's not clear how that will work but considering we are the richest program in the country you would hope they can figure it out.
  2. Recruiting is about relationships and selling of a vision for the future. Obviously an embarrassing loss hurts some but I don't think it's near as big of a deal as many believe.
  3. He started out recruiting well, but then it started to become clear that he was arrogant and his players were not developing, at which point we were losing too many recruiting battles. If Herman had been able to recruit better last year they probably would have given him another year.
  4. It will be interesting to see what adjustments the coaches are able to make and which QB starts the second half
  5. To me this shows us the reason Sark is doing what he needs to do to keep Casey out of the portal.
  6. Someone needs to fix that. Here is a link. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://saturdaytradition.com/iowa-football/iowa-state-chooses-interesting-uniform-combination-for-matchup-vs-iowa/amp/&ved=2ahUKEwiQqLSosPDyAhWEk2oFHUw0DZIQvOMEKAB6BAgfEAE&usg=AOvVaw1o6PwAMjlzZ9yxADiG3K_y&ampcf=1&cshid=1631138487027
  7. That would be an awesome problem to have. I'm sure the coaches would figure something out.
  8. Seems like if they thought the BIG12 could somehow hold onto UT & OU for another year they wouldn't be moving this quickly. I think this means the TX & OU exit terms are mostly known and that there will be a new BIG12 grant of rights agreement that runs at least as long as the ACC grant of rights.
  9. I think that the BIG12 including WVU will be on board with the expansion as long as they work out the financials in a way that they see as benefitting them. Keep in mind that no expansion implies we keep the current 4 team playoffs for 6 more years, and an expanded playoff provides a hefty new revenue stream. There will be lots of rangling about how that money should be divided, but in the end as long as everyone thinks they will get more money and that they aren't being treated unfairly they will get on board.
  10. The big question is will the BIG12 champion have an opportunity for a bye in the expanded playoffs. I wouldn't think so, but the schedule could be compelling enough to have a good BIG12 team make it into the expanded playoffs.
