  1. Val nails it... Our starting five should be good-to-adequate, but there's a steep drop-off from there. I'm sure we're going to rotate young guys in, but they're just not ready yet. 2024 is gonna be a big learning curve. There will be very few teams we can just out-muscle and out-talent at the line of scrimmage. Quick hitters in the run AND pass game are gonna be key. Don't make the young QB sit back there and think too much. Don't try overly complicated counters or draws. Hit fast and hit hard.
  2. Nahhh, you pumpin' sunshine wit' yo' crimson and cream sunglasses. We got nuthin' and be lucky to break .500 next year.
  3. I've heard podcasters and seen Tweets that say *theoretically* this is the hardest schedule OU should experience for the foreseeable future, due to the rotation of teams, home and away, and etc. Frankly, I don't care. I'm just glad to be out of the clown car escapades of the Big XII. Now granted, the SEC has its own corruptions and shenanigans, but at least we'll get rich in the process.
  4. Matt Flynn? Andy Newberry? Anyone? Bueller?
  5. Welllll, I can draw up the GT and inside blocking schemes, but you can forget the rest. No thank you. I'm perfectly happy within the safety of the admin bldg.
  6. BREAKING: The upstart D-II powerhouse University of Texas at Longview has officially joined the Big XII. Head coach Matthias Smartass has guaranteed a string of five-straight conference championships before applying for admission into the SEC.
  7. First of all, I would to thank the many, many fans throughout this country that wrote cards and letters to Dusty Rhodes, The American Dream, while I was down. Secondly, I want to thank Jim Crockett promotions for waitin’ and takin’ the time ‘cause I know how important it was, Starrcade ‘85 it is to the wrestling fans, it is to Jim Crockett promotions, and Dusty Rhodes The American Dream. With that wait, I got what I wanted, Ric Flair the World’s Heavyweight Champion. I don’t have to say a whole lot more about the way I feel about Ric Flair; no respect, no honor. There is no honor amongst thieves in the first place. He put hard times on Dusty Rhodes and his family. You don’t know what hard times are daddy. Hard times are when the textile workers around this country are out of work, they got 4 or 5 kids and can’t pay their wages, can’t buy their food. Hard times are when the auto workers are out of work and they tell ‘em go home. And hard times are when a man has worked at a job for thirty years, thirty years, and they give him a watch, kick him in the butt and say “hey a computer took your place, daddy”, that’s hard times! That’s hard times! And Ric Flair you put hard times on this country by takin’ Dusty Rhodes out, that’s hard times. And we all had hard times together, and I admit, I don’t look like the athlete of the day supposed to look. My belly’s just a lil’ big, my heiny’s a lil’ big, but brother, I am bad. And they know I’m bad. There were two bad people… One was John Wayne and he’s dead brother, and the other’s right here. Nature Boy Ric Flair, the World’s Heavyweight title belongs to these people. I’mma reach out right now, I want you at home to know my hand is touchin’ your hand for the gathering of the biggest body of people in this country, in this universe, all over the world now, reachin’ out because the love that was given me and this time I will repay you now. Because I will be the next World’s Heavyweight Champion on this hard time blues. Dusty Rhodes tour, ‘85. And Ric Flair, Nature Boy… Let me leave you with this. One way to hurt Ric Flair, is to take what he cherishes more than anything in the world and that’s the World’s Heavyweight title. I’m gon’ take it, I been there twice. This time when I take it daddy, I’m gon’ take it for you. Let’s gather for it. Don’t let me down now, ‘cause I came back for you, for that man upstairs that died 10-12 years ago and never got the opportunity to see a real World’s Champion. And I’m proud of you, thank god I have you, and I love you. I love you!
  8. Defense looks scary. RBs look greedy. O-line is raw, but talented. Passing needs work. Special teams: meh. So, a typical spring for Lobo football.
  9. His "Hard Times" promo is probably the greatest in wrestling history. It's pretty much the Gettysburg Address of wrestling promos.
  10. Spring Game will be on YouTube tonight (barring any weather issues that knock our stream offline) starting at around 5 p.m. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTN3BOGWW24 It's just gonna be a one-shot of the overall field. No in-game commentary or score updates.
  11. I know this tweet from "eric g" is supposed to be passive-aggressive smack talk, but I hate to break it to him: all of those are attainable for UT this season. I say that as a Sooner alum. So I hope he doesn't mind folks pulling receipts if it all indeed happens.
  12. Man... every time I think of David, I think of what might've been. He had the charisma, the technique, and the promo ability to be as big as Hulk Hogan was in the '80s. He was so young when he died, and hadn't even reached his potential yet. Just think about how big Kevin and Kerry were during that time, and multiply it times 100. David was gonna be a massive star.
  13. Geez... kids acting like injuries have never happened, or that the guy ahead of you will never gets the yips. A million things could happen. I just don't understand this generation.
  14. By the way, you need to thank your board on making a generational hire: It's a major, major loss for Longview and an absolute home run for Lufkin.
  15. I'm down with anything in the Charles Dickens universe. I don't care how poor an adaptation it might be, I'm in.
  16. There are *numerous* houses in Marshall that my wife and I have wanted to buy, but there's just no way we can live there... not unless ETBU wants to money-whip me for a cushy admin gig.
  17. Are they *ever* gonna get around to retiring your number?
  18. Nah man, I know you're fine where you're at, I mean your network... surely you know a lotta folks in your field who may be looking. That's all.
  19. Hahaha, you're not wrong, but that's the thing: Zabka isn't just a one-dimensional bully in the Cobra Kai series. He shows a lot of complexity and nuance, and develops in an interesting way as a character. It makes the series more engaging.
