  1. 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.
  2. 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 .
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. It would be interesting to see how they make that work.
  7. If he takes the job or not it will likely results in a salary bump.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Hard to know how it played out but it could be a case of the squeeky wheel getting the NIL money.
  11. 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.
  12. Lol,as I recall that was to make room for a 3 star.
  13. 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.
  14. Do you think we have any chance with Earnest Greene?
  15. My understanding is the transfer rules allow a single transfer without sitting a year, so a second transfer would require an athlete to sit a year, assuming they don't have a good reason to justify a waiver. Time will tell how many transfers there will be, but I would think this is likely to make the rich get richer, so Texas should be okay. If the team is winning the fans won't care that there is a higher percentage of new players.
  16. Makes you wonder. Assuming this is true, either these are rescent problems or Sark didn't do his homework before he decided to retain him.
  17. This seems like another reason to be optimistic. Coaches want to work for Sark and he has very high standard, both in developing and recruiting.
  18. Yes I was aware of the study and that is one of the disadvantages I eluded to. Here is an article on the subject which links it to bad outcomes, which may not be causal since families that do this may be disadvantaged to start with. I definitely don't think it's a good idea, but think pure stupidity is way too judgmental. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://nypost.com/2017/05/12/your-babys-unique-name-might-ruin-its-life/amp/&ved=2ahUKEwjt0vnR_O30AhWTkmoFHYxMApIQFnoECCAQAQ&usg=AOvVaw3zg692GeGi22fOZXvxTpCB
  19. Giving your kids creative names is popular with some black families. In some ways it's kind of cool but it does have some disadvantages in our society. To call it pure stupidity seems very wrong and potentially racist.
  20. General portal question. I understand that you can sign up to an additional 7 from high school recruits, but what I don't know is if portal transfers have any cap. Let's say you lose 20 players to the portal, then as I understand it you could get an extra 7 high school players. Let's say you sign an additional 7 high school players, would you then be able to pick up an additional 13 players from the portal? Obviously you still need to stay under the 85 limit. If not then allot of athletes entering the portal will not find teams.
  21. Obviously the class is awesome. My comment was meant as an observation not a complaint. My point was that so far Ewers likely has had minimal impact on the recent commits. That could very well change.
  22. Definitely Oline was the biggest need, but it seems unlikely that Ewers was a significant factor. I think the hope was that some top receivers would follow him.
  23. I sure hope that's not true. Seems like between ESPN and the SEC they should be able come up with the $ to make next year the last.
