  1. I drove through NM earlier this week. Mask are mandatory and all of the restaurants were curbside only. The Marriott where I stayed required me to sign a waiver stating that they are not responsible should I contract COVID.
  2. SEC = Safety Evades Co-Edโ€™s SEC = Sush Each Complaint LSU = Lower Standard University
  3. If I did not know better I would think that Regaleagle is trolling with mentioning Dodge. I remember the Faust Fiasco!
  4. A complaint was filed with the league office addressing this issue. The action that OSU did was against B12 rules.
  5. Sam is dinged up a bit so that probably had an effect on him running this past Saturday.
  6. 1 and 2 in no particular order.
  7. There are more than enough BMD's that are disgruntled. Money will not be an issue. They may pull their money from the End Zone remodel and apply it to the coaching buyout. The BMD's will/would find a way to get it done.
  8. This very funny. I love to watch old comedy skits and sitcoms. The writing was very clever back then. Curse words did not have to be used for it to be funny. A lot of suggestive material was cleverly veiled and came across innocently if your mind was not allowed to go there. I used to get MeTV which showed a lot of old sitcoms. Now I have to surf the channels (DirecTV) to find the occasional old sitcom. Of course YouTube allows for viewing.
  9. Yes, gore is Taratinoโ€™s go to. I was hoping to get through this movie without it though!!! Almost!
  10. I watched the movie some time back. I enjoyed it as it was well written and acted. However, I could have done without the gratuitous Tarantino gore at the end.
  11. Her profile/silhouette looks like the warm front symbol on a weather map. Appropriate attire.
  12. I catch it from time to time. I actually went to their movie that came out just before Covid hit. The series is better than the movie. It was somewhat of a letdown.
  13. I am glad that I went to UT when I did. My daughter is glad that she went when she did. We both graduated and were admitted during the 10% admit period. Today the auto admit is the top 6%. The people that made UT what it is are not the ones going there now.
  14. Enough is enough. It is time for people in charge, not just at UT, but with the rest society, to man up and start pushing back on this SJW enriched world. People are so dumb on so many levels.
  15. What I have read is that after all of the negotiations from the demands of the players this summer, changing names of buildings, funding more minority programs, etc., which the university did with the compromise that the players did not have to sing The Eyes of Texas but would remain on the field. Some of the players wanted the song gone but all of the other demands were met so giving one thing as a compromise seemed logical. All of the other sports programs have complied with this except for the football team. Herman did not enforce it so the players have been leaving. Del Conte, the AD,
  16. From what I gather from the ones that are opposed to the song is that it was sung at a minstrel show originally. There is a forced connection to what the song is actually referring to as well. If indeed this song was "racist" I am sure that it would have been dealt with long ago. Even if it was originally meant to be racist it has long lost that connection. I was on campus from 1984 through 1988 and I was never made aware of the "history" of the song.
  17. I partially agree with this post. The head coaches for OU during the time that the other players played were Gary Gibbs, Howard Schnellenberger, and John Blake. The OU that we know today was not the OU of then. These coaches did not perform well so it is safe to assume that the defenses were not stellar then either. I will agree that the stats are irrelevant because of the progressiveness of the game and through in 4 OT's. And, the losses are not on Sam.
  18. Hallsville may not win many, if any, games this year but they will be much more competitive than in recent years. The athletes that refused to play under Drennan are back and are contributing.
  19. Coaching makes average players good and good players great. Texas is lacking player development which leads to draft picks. The talent is on the 40 Acres it is just not being coached up. Do not just look at draft picks. Look at the Texas players that are in the NFL and are contributors that were UDFAโ€™s. To me, that screams lack of coaching at the collegiate level.
  20. I think the political environment at Texas is being overplayed by those that are saying so and so will not come because of the politics. While it does take some hand grabbing and fake pats on the back I see that being less of an issue; 10 to 15 years ago, yes, but not today. The boosters that demanded that type of involvement are literally dying off. They were all there during the SWC days of winning. A different era of football and life. The remnant of them were present during the Mack years. The new boosters are those that remember the Vince and Colt years. Today's business is bri
  21. I disagree with your premise that there are no studs on Texasโ€™ roster. They may not have the inherent passion that Sam has but to say they are not exceptional football players is a stretch. Being a head coach is more than teaching fundamentals, techniques, Xโ€™s And Oโ€™s, you must also foster the killer instincts that supplements all of the rest. Herman lacks both. He is not teaching nor is he developing an attitude with his players. The latent talent is there it is just not being utilized or even tapped into save some God-given exceptions.
