  1. That's very interesting. I have family that's lived in East Texas going back a few generations, and my great great grandfather actually took his wife's last name, rather than vice versa, so you never know; I may have a lot of family in ETX I don't know about, lol.
  2. I must admit, I've never seen O Brother, Where Art Thou. But just from your two posts, I feel like I must now, lol.
  3. Not to my knowledge. It's funny, because it's not a common name, so perhaps he may be a distant relative, lol.
  4. That's a very fair assessment.
  5. Circle the date on the calendar! October 8th! "It's despicable that a reputable head coach can come out and say this when he doesn't get his way," Fisher said. "The narcissist in him doesn't allow those things to happen. It's ridiculous when he's not on top." "Some people think they're God," Fisher said. "Go dig into how God did his deal. You may find out ... a lot of things you don't want to know. We build him up to be the czar of football. Go dig into his past, or anybody's that's ever coached with him. You can find out anything you want to find out, what he does and how he does it. It's despicable." He said Saban had called him, but he hasn't answered. "Not going to. We're done," said Fisher, comparing his time with Saban and his time as an assistant at Florida State under Bobby Bowden, before taking over as the Seminoles' head coach. "He's the greatest ever, huh? When you've got all the advantages, it's easy. ... You coach with people like Bobby Bowden and learn how to do things. You coach with other people and learn how not to do things. There's a reason people I ain't back and worked for [Saban]. Don't wanna be associated with him."
  6. I will. But I also don't care. I also don't care if anyone gets their panties in a bunch over it either. It was legal. Own it.
  7. It's also a much greater deciding factor than Aggies like to think. Look, this argument has gone in circles for a couple months now. A&M did pay for their recruiting class. Now, before any Aggie here comes back at me with, 'then prove it', it already has been. You see, for some reason most of you Aggies have approached this situation with this idea that the only way to prove anything, is for the person accused to admit it. That's simply not accurate. In a court case, it's the prosecutions job to provide ample evidence for the jury to reach a guilty verdict. The jury in this case (which would be the entire country, outside of Aggieland), has seen all the evidence they need to see, and has made their verdict. And what evidence am I referring to? Simple.... '18 - 0 5* recruits '19 - 2 5* recruits '20 - 2 5* recruits '21 - 1 5* recruit NIL is introduced: '22 - 8 5* recruits Unlike the far left in this country, majority of us are capable of seeing what's in front of us, and not being naive enough to believe it's just coincidence. Then you use players like Kenyon Green to make your argument. I mean really? That's as bad a defense as Amber Heard's lawyers have come up with. Why? Because it's not the same thing. Kenyon Green was on his way to the NFL. That's every players ultimate goal. He was already there. He was a 1st rd draft pick. He wasn't coming back. Well Kelvin Banks wasn't there yet, and he still didn't choose A&M. Good argument. Except, NO ONE has claimed that the NIL has affected EVERY SINGLE player. Well Texas only won 5 games and still finished with the #5 class. Great, another decent argument. Expect, the argument here isn't about A&M finishing with the #1 class; it's about the fact they finished with the #1 class....OF ALL TIME!!! But here's the part where I've gone in circles defending A&M. It doesn't matter. They still haven't done anything wrong! This is what most everyone wanted, for players to get paid. This is what most everyone has been screaming and begging for. Well guess what, it's here. The NCAA has finally allowed it. The only reason you see coaches like Saban and Kiffin arguing specifically about A&M's class, is because they lost out on some of these players, and have to face A&M every season.
  8. Sounds like he'll be enrolled for the Summer, and settling in next week.
  9. https://247sports.com/college/texas/Article/Texas-Longhorns-football-Agiye-Hall-will-be-enrolled-at-Texas-by-the-end-of-May-Woodrow-Grady-Team-Tampa--187657766/
  10. Don't know anything about the social media piece, but here's a tweet regarding the roster.... "Since social media is out of control, it's worth noting that Alabama transfer WR Agiye Hall has never been on Texas' roster, thus he cannot have been taken off. Summer enrollment date is May 31."
  11. Because the NIL is still so new, I do believe there are still many kids out there making decisions on factors other than just money. That's not to say, however, that I believe the percentage of kids making their decisions already on money is a small amount either. That said, I also believe each year that goes by with this, that percentage will continue to climb higher. Just like when the NFL instituted the salary cap, the argument was made that in time you'll see true rivalries disappear. I think most would agree today that that's exactly what has happened. Similarly in college, I think you'll see loyalty to any school go out the window, and money will be the biggest factor for most. College football as we knew it yesterday is gone.
  12. I can't help but think of the line from Thanos, in Infinity War, when I read this comment. Loki: "I have experience" Thanos: "If you consider losing experience"
  13. Don’t know. The report just said it was a Power 5 school for each player approached.
  14. So Texas has 2 players that were approached and offered lucrative deals to enter the portal and transfer to their program. One of those players is Xavier Worthy. So is this what we’re now allowing? Just offer any player you want? If this is what the NCAA is now going for, then college sports as we knew it is gone.
  15. I'm still one of the biggest skeptics when it comes to Sark, but this only proves what Sark took over. It is not a reflection on him....yet.
  16. I like this pick a lot. I had him in my mock draft.
  17. Here's what I see when I watch his tape.....holding. holding. holding. holding. Even those plays that didn't get called in college, they will on Sundays.
  18. Here's my issue with Dallas's pick, and yes, I did take issue with it. First and foremost, 1st round picks are not for players that need to be groomed and developed. If you get drafted in the first round, you better be expected to get on the field during your first year. Secondly, the penalties. He was the 3rd most flagged OL in FBS last year. If we're looking for players that fit right into to what we're already doing, then I guess we hit a homerun. When I watched his tape, he's very good in run coverage. It's pass coverage that he's just awful. He's not quick off the snap. This leads him to having to reach for the defender, which then leads to the holding penalties. Which by the way, 12 may have been called, but he got away with many more. The one game he played against NFL caliber DL last season, Ohio State, he got destroyed the entire game. Devin Lloyd, Nakobe Dean, Jermaine Johnson, Tyler Linderbaum...all were still there for Dallas, and I would've preferred any one of them over Smith. Sorry, but I'm not one of the Cowboys fans that believes every pick we make is a Pro Bowler.
  19. They certainly looked like the team we saw earlier in the season against Baylor.
  20. Texas wrapped up a dominating weekend series over Baylor today... 20-1 13-4 13-4
  21. Texas had a pair of commits after the spring game yesterday: 4* WR Ryan Niblett, out of Houston Eisenhower, and 4* RB Tre Wisner out of DeSoto
  22. I can imagine. Of course, both sides have plenty of reason to right now, lol.
  23. I swear non Longhorn fans seem to follow them more than even Longhorn fans do.
  24. Oh I agree. I wasn’t saying all of that to say it would determine the season. I was only referring to whether or not they handle the outcome mentally.
  25. I don't completely agree with that. I think Casey Thompson folded after the OU game, but the team as a whole still came out and took double digit leads against Ok State and Baylor, before collapsing in the second half of each. I think it was after that, that the team lost all confidence in Thompson, and quit. I think they'll lose to Bama, but by how much depends on QB play. If they compete against Bama, I think they'll be just fine. LSU in 2019 was one of the best football teams we've all seen in years. Texas went toe to toe with them. While a loss, they rebounded by winning the next 3, before losing a close game to OU. Sark has made a lot of changes throughout the offseason. While I am looking forward to seeing some of the new players, I'm even more-so looking forward to seeing if what he's doing to change the attitude is working.
