  1. Are tickets being sold at the gate. Don't want to drive from Palestine just to find out no tickets being sold at the gate.
  2. Everything B.Robinson has ever said in any interview has shown him to be a individual that is not just all about himself. He is team oriented, believes that the game is about more than just him. He seems to be a loyal individual and loves where he is at and he is there for more than just football so I believe he will be back for one more year. He will also be the type to end up with a degree from UT also.
  3. Amen to this. Hard to change a culture with players who do not want to change or try to fake they are changing till poop hits the fan then they show their true colors again. Anybody who thought this was a one year fix was crazy. Like I said in another post all Sark saw was talent on the roster, the eye test everybody talks about, but when things got tough the real problems has rear it ugly head and I'm just waiting to see if he deals with it. The above tweet is one way to start dealing with it. The process make take longer than doing it with the players that are here, but if the players that are here don't want to buy in and put in the work and time and really care if they lose or win then they need to be told to hit the portal, regardless of the # of stars next to their names when they got here.
  4. I forgot the name but they have a very good Mexican restaurant in town and a decent steakhouse.
  5. I got nothing better to do, I'm still am going to this game if it gets lopsided I will go get something to eat early.
  6. This game being in Crockett and me living in Palestine means I may go see this one. The reason I am interested is because of how well New Waverly played Newton and how it seems a lot of people on here are taking exception of someone saying that West Rusk should not take them lightly. This could be a entertaining game. If not then still a short ride for me back home. If I had to bet money it would be that West Rusk wins by 10, but Tatum went out in the 1st round , Texas gets beat by Kansas at home, anything can happen. You don't win games on paper.
  7. There are a lot of things that could happen ,but if you go listing or posting everything that could happen on a message board you are bound to get some of them right. Does that mean you where right or just threw enough things up there to get one right. Texas is in a bad way right now, has been for a while. Sark did not know how bad it was. All he saw was talent on the roster. Well guess what. He knows now what some of us have known for awhile.
  8. This time of year I take the time to teach my students the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. I also let them know that November 10 is the Marine Corps Birthday, and why Veterans day is celebrated on the 11th of November. You will be surprised how many students do not know a lot of this. I served and it was one of the best things I ever done in my life. I thank all of those who have served also. I would like to thank all of those people who recognize and tell Vets thank you for your service . It means a lot.
  9. Believe in 2003 or 2004 when Coach Glenn Tunstil was the Ad Palestine played in the Semi-Finals so that would have been in December. Coach Allison who won a State Championship at Cayuga was his OC. They were very good for a couple of years then it went south again.
  10. Ouch. That's a loud statement.
  11. Palestine's deep run could be in the years to come if they can patch together a offensive line. Getting to the playoffs this year was a major goal of theirs and winning a playoff game was a goal of theirs. I think they can accomplish that to but it will be tough against LCM but its doable. A deep run in the future is also doable.
  12. Drank that stuff once and did not know it over sea's in Okinawa on Friday and woke up at 2:am Sunday morning in my bunk. Don't know How I got there. Never touch the stuff again. A buddy of mine just said here try this.

  15. To me the big turning point came at 3rd and 9 at the 20 something yd line with 5:32 left in the first half. Leading 17-3 in FG range you throw that ball when you know they are going to drop 8 and the field is more condensed. Run a draw or screen pass, anything but that stupid Int for a TD. Halftime should have been no worse than 20-6 the way the defense was playing the first half, Instead it was 17-13 at halftime. For the 3rd game in a row we got out played or out coached in the 2nd half . We hung for the win in the TCU game. Was not fortunate in the last 2. We will lose one or 2 more games if this don't improve. West Virginia , Iowa St play something close to that 3-3-5 defense and will drop 8 most of the time on 3rd and 6 + yds.

  19. I don't think there needs to be to big over reaction to this game. It is a game against your biggest rival and a lot of weird things have happen in this game. Stars have been born in this game and Caleb Williams is one of them. I can't say enough about someone who did not even play in High School last year and showed the poised he did in this game. It happens. He is going to be hard to deal with in the next couple of years. I did not expect Texas to win every game this year. Wanted to see improvement and at least 9 tp 10 wins and go from their for the 1st year. Still a lot of season left.
  20. Well after I put everything back where it belong my conclusion from this game is as followed. For a true Freshmen who did not play HS ball last year C.Williams is going to be darn good and hard to handle in the future. The only problem I got is some of the throws deep he made were just thrown up for grabs and it seems no matter who our DC is our DBs never seem to be able to stay over the top or ever see the ball and play it. Yes you are going to get pushed off but if you are playing the ball or seeing it maybe it gets called. I thought Sark called a good game. Might have got out adjusted in the 2nd half though. In the future our offensive line has got to get better and so does tackling. I believe in time with this staff and the current recruiting this will happen. Nice comeback for OU and I have to listen to everyone for another year. Except trashyhound. When he starts bringing objective comments on here and not just hate , then I will listen to what he has to say.
  21. A program is not built in a year. A coach needs more than one year to get his culture set on his program. I know he has been their awhile but still every coach has has his own unique way of how he wants things done. Anyone that has an ounce of knowledge of how to run an athletic program knows this. Way to early to point fingers and say I told you so.

  23. Yes I did notice that and ten some. An article was written in ESPN that reference an Ex-Arkansas Coach that was coaching back when Arkansas left the SWC for the SEC. He stated that he could not see UT or OU staying in the Big 12 till 2025 because of having to play against everybody and I mean everybody when you go on the road. He stated that other teams in the conference would help you get ready to play against them. The official would would be a little bias for the remaining Big 12 schools also. On one play TCU was called for holding which would halve killed a drive but the head official over ruled him and said their was no holding on the play. They talked about it for awhile. TCU went on and scored. Same thing went on in K-State. It will be this way all year. I am not saying cheating is going on but every close call or objective call will not go OU or UT way on the road. I thought when I read the article I thought it was over the top a little bit, but I don't know now. After watching these 22 games I am going to be watching away games a little bit closer in these areas a littlie closer.
