  1. Arkansas AD said after adding Georgia and Florida, giving them Bama, LSU, Auburn, A&M, Georgia, and Florida... “We now have the most challenging schedule in the history of college football.” I guess he forgot that just 1 year ago, A&M played all those same teams, accept Clemson over Florida.
  2. They’re not giving Arkansas any chance. They may not win a game this year
  3. I said 2 losses prior to the schedule changes, Bama and Auburn. I can see Florida being number 3. I still believe LSU drops off big, and I don’t think Tennessee is very good.
  4. Jordan Whittington was limited to start practice today due to a hamstring injury sustained during summer workouts.
  5. Oh I completely agree. The way the injury bug has hit the last couple years, however, they may have simply been looking to fill the void.
  6. RB Daniel Young has not been working out with the team amid COVID concerns, and may opt out of the season. Adds a bit of reasoning to the staff pursing Towson RB Shane Simpson.
  7. SR LB Caleb Kelly suffered a torn ACL and will miss the season. He missed last season also for the same injury.
  8. Texas picks up a commitment today from 3* TE Gunnar Helm, out of CO. He committed to Texas over Wisconsin and Iowa.
  9. Alabama wins the SEC West. 2nd place will come down to the winner of A&M vs Auburn. Until the season starts and I see otherwise, I do not expect LSU to be near as good as they were last season. I'm sticking with my prediction of 4-5 losses for them (Florida being the toss-up), losing to both Texas schools on the schedule.
  10. So it sounds like this decision was made due to the fact many of those larger districts have also delayed the first day of school, as well as when they'll return in person (for example, ALL of Dallas County will be virtual until Sept. 8th. If that's the case, then yes, it makes more sense.
  11. Crowds are being limited to capacity at any large event. The same can be done at a HS football game. Besides, 'smaller' schools can draw large crowds as well. Kilgore stadium, for example, holds 8K people.
  12. I just don't understand the decision. I want to see football as much as anyone (I will seriously be unbearable to be around this Fall if we don't have it, lol), but what is the justification behind allowing 1A-4A to play, and not 5&6A? Are kids at 1-4A schools immune?
  13. You failed to miss my point. Over the last several years, it hasn't mattered who the coach is, and it's not just UT... Over the last 5 years: 54% of the Top 25 players in Texas have chosen to go out of state. 44% of the Top 10 players in Texas have chosen to go out of state. There are 5 Power 5 Programs in the State of Texas. Then you have schools like, SMU, UTEP, UNT, Houston, Rice, etc. A plethora of instate programs to choose from; and even still, 54% of the Top 25 players in Texas have gone elsewhere. It's not just a Tom Herman problem.
  14. That brings up another point... For several years now, people have argued, 'Well Texas doesn't develop their talent'. And for several years, I believed that as well. Until I looked at it from another perspective, that is. It's easy(er) to send multiple players to the NFL every year when you bring in the best players in the country each year. It's much harder, and much more challenging to do it with lesser talent. Yes, Texas has brought in a few big name players in recent years, but look at the star rating for those players going pro. Most of them were 3 and 4 star players. Can they do better, of course. But they aren't as bad as made out to be.
  15. That part bothers me too, when someone says he can't recruit. He may not be getting the vast majority of the top talent in Texas, but he's been able to make up for it, to an extent, by recruiting outside well...Arizona, CA, etc. And the funniest part of it all, for the Texas HS kids that every year say, "I want to see what they do on the field first", well, if those very players all chose Texas each year, you'd see them be great! The Alabama's of the world stay great for that very reason, their ability to bring in Top players every year.
