  1. Longview has certainly produced the talent over the years. i know that James Street is from Longview but due to my age the first one I actually remember was Hosea Taylor. I was a youngster at the time and I came across him on the Longview Mall with his UH jersey on. Up to that time he was the biggest person I had ever seen!
  2. Didn't that also occur several years ago when Henson (TCU), Williams (OU) and 2 or 3 more all make it to the league?
  3. He had a great complete year: 106 Receptions; #1 Big 12 and #3 FBS 1386 Receiving Yards; #1 Big 12 and #5 FBS 9 Receiving TD's; #3 Big 12 10 Total TD's; #8 Big 12 1410 Yards from Scrimmage; #2 Big 12
  4. Get over yourself. Poking fun at politicians or potential politicians is a global thing. There have been caricatures of politicians for ages. No one is immune to it be it a Republican, Democrat, Independent, Commie, Socialist, Fascist, Anarchist, etc. MO would just be the latest in a long line of people subjected to it. Just because she is a minority and a woman does not give her immunity. I would not vote for MO and none of them pertain to the assumptions that you make in your above statements. Personally I can refute each claim at length. And please, do not confuse being "educated" wit
  5. I found it funny too. But then again I am 53 years old and not a pansy.
  6. I am in the mining industry so something is always needed to be dug up! If it can't be grown then it has to be mined!
  7. I am curious as to how this will affect my job long-term. No fear of losing my job but how it is performed. I fly around 100,000 miles per year including flights domestically and globally. Some countries that I fly to require some shots so I always carry my immunization record with me for such cases. There are also some countries that would take your temperature as you were going through immigration. China and South Africa has been doing this off and on for years. There are also some flights that once all of the passengers are on the plane the flight attendants will walk through the
  8. More collateral damage from the Chinese Coronavirus!!
  9. China has a way of dealing with those who step out of their lane.
  10. I personally have not heard too much other than the fact that, on the surface, the profile looks very similar to the road that was just traveled down with Drennon. At least it cannot get any worse than it already was. Just hope that he can get Hallsville to be "competitive" again. I will buy my season tickets again and will be there when I can cheering the team on.
  11. I think the information available to determine if a mom has an influence or not is skewed. The times that the athlete and the mom disagree are the ones that usually make the headlines since that is "news". How many times does it get reported that the athlete followed mom's wishes? Probably not too many because there is no conflict there thus there is no "news". I am also sure that there are cases where the kid and mom disagreed on where to go but the kid becomes "star" and all is forgotten. What about the times that the kid does not make it and transfers home to be closer to "family"? We
  12. Wait, what? Are we talking about Hallsville?
  13. I knew he had a lot. As a program Hallsville just went over a 1000 wins this year back in February. I think the start date was in the late 1940's. Crazy that he has amassed half of the wins in 20 or so years. The baseball program in Hallsville really took off in the early 1980's initially with Mike Cox for a couple of years followed by Connie Cochran. I would not be surprised to find out that Cochran had a 100 or so wins in the short time he was there. I believe that Cochran's initial 3 teams were the first in the program history to win 20+ games 3 years in a row.
  14. Yes, I have heard the same thing. He is on schedule to reach a major win (300?) milestone this year.
  15. Football has always been tough for Hallsville. They should not have been as bad as they were under Drennon but at least somewhat competitive. Being that there are better football schools to the East and the West, Hallsville should continue to focus on baseball. And no, I am not a baseball parent. My last child graduated in 2013 and he only played football and was a sprinter on the track team.
  16. He said “kids” not “wives”!!
  17. I was listening to the College Sports Station this morning on XM Radio and this and some other decisions that the NCAA made took the schools and AD’s by surprise. From what I gather it sounds like some of this may be reconsidered depending on how this initial quarantine works out.
  18. Try: $60,000,000,000,000/330,000,000=$181,818.18 per Person.
  19. You might want to check your math. The number is much worse than what you indicate. Try 60 followed by 12 zeroes and then divide by 330 million (US pop.)
