  1. Didn't Lincoln and Stoops have good recruiting classes during that time? Or were they JUST outside of the threshold to be considered scumbags? How about Barry Switzer?
  2. It's free on YouTube right now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8jZmEKRCf4
  3. That gif is one of the best ever. That said, every A&M fan I know is more like that one Kevin Hart one..
  4. O Brother Where Art Thou is one of the finest comedy movies ever made. I now have to go rewatch it. So thanks for that.
  5. Thanks, Lobo! You're a gentleman and a scholar. Also, is the young QB at Longview any relation to you? Just saw his name... Anyway, Jimbo needs to back it up now. He beat Saban last October and pulled a good class. Now make it a regular thing. At the very least, play a competitive game against Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Show that you're not intimidated and that you're here to stay. Anyone can say it. Now go prove it.
  6. It's funny you talk about the far left and then cite "the country" as the jury of public opinion. "The country" you speak of just elected Joe Biden as their president, with 83 million votes. "The country" (even the right) locked down their economy for months to years to halt a virus (unsuccessfully, mind you) with a 99.98% survival rate. Sadly, watching politics the last 3-5 years, I've had to come to terms with the fact that the average American is absolutely stupid. Just how it is now, I guess. So yeah, I don't think citing "the entire country" is the big gotcha moment you think it is. They're easily swayed and gullible. But you're right- it's irrelevant. It's completely legal and if A&M bought their class, I'm happy they did it better than everyone else.
  7. A little shaky? Aside from 1-2 arms they’re just not good. That said, the hitting they’re doing in game 3s (17 against Kentucky, 23 against Georgia, 11 against Arkansas) has been a welcome change.
  8. No no, it's something I often wondered too. I was like, "How do these guys just do this for free?! Don't they have bills to pay?" It's amazing what athletic departments do to stay within compliance and games they play with taxes. Like A&M. If you buy tickets, you DONATE to the 12thManFoundation, not to Athletics directly. Has to do with all sorts of taxes and regulations. Summer camps are a completely separate entity too, and thus how a coach can "volunteer" (in that they don't take a salary from an Athletics Department) but still get paid.
  9. I will also say that while Dameyun Craig is an amazing recruiter, he doesn't seem to develop WRs well. It is what it is.
  10. He's not a volunteer anymore I believe, so he's getting paid now (not that he needs that lol). I haven't heard much about what his intention is coaching college ball. I assume Even volunteer coaches get paid. They do things like run the baseball camps and take a decent salary from that. For all intents and purposes, volunteer coaches get paid.
  11. That's insane too- his OPS is a ridiculous 1.328. Surely some of these numbers will drop a bit, though we've seen guys bat .400 in college. That would be cool if Texas had 2 guys do it.
  12. If I were a hitter for Texas, I'd be beyond angry. They were up 11-7 in the 8th against Tech, and that wasn't enough. Then up 12-11 in the 10th and that wasn't enough. Scoring 10 runs in games and it not being enough would have me furious. What more can they realistically do?! Then at one point in the game last night, they had scored 8 runs but were still trailing by 4. The Texas bats are scary good (4 guys hitting over .350?!!), and that Ivan Melendez is one of the best hitters I've ever seen. I just checked and his OPS is 1.453 and he's hit 13 HR in only 27 games. That is INSANITY. But man, I thought OUR bullpen was bad (and it is). Texas seems to have an even worse BP.
