Wow, stunned to read a story like that in the Transcript...  I don't know what they're paying that reporter, but whatever it is, it's not enough.

It WAS a good article on Switzer by the Transcript writer, but he blew it big time with his account of Barry and the Lone Star.  The story, as related by Barry in his book Bootlegger's Boy, is similar, but different brand of beer:

Barry went down the alley on the way to the recruit's house, saw a bunch of Pearl empties in the trash can.  When the dad asks Barry if he'd like a beer, Barry responds, "Only if it's a Pearl".

And he wound up signing the kid.

I love the story about him recruiting Keith Jackson... 

Keith's mama was dead-set on him going to Arkansas, then Barry shows up and spends two hours talking about pinto beans and collard greens. Doesn't even talk football. After he leaves Keith's mama says that if Keith doesn't go to Arkie, he's gonna go to Oklahoma.

Two straight three-and-outs...  did we have back-to-back three and outs at all last season?

As magical as Kyler was running, it's nice to have a big physical QB out there...  seems like I held my breath every time Kyler would take off. Not worried so much about Jalen.

If this game is any indication of what we can expect from our defense, we're gonna need to get Grinch his own statue.

He's always had the talent...  just hasn't had the coaching.  :(

2013 vs UL Monroe

Defense was actually decent that year.

Rome was not built in a day.

Houston has a good offense as well.

Other than the fumble Hurts looks great tonight. And to hold UofH to 10pts in a half is good news compared to the D of last year.

Okay next kicker up.

Yeah...  at this point I'd rather go for it than flip the coin with this guy.  :angry:

Exactly...  if this was a Mike Stoops defense, it'd be 21-21 at the half and King would already have 300 yards of total offense. 

 

Shoot, against a QB like King, I'll take this every week:
