  1. Hate that we're losing Schmidt back to you guys. I thought he did great with our guys. Are y'all happy to have him back or no? I can't remember sentiment when he left there.
  2. I think this is the right move. Oklahoma's defense has not been up to standard. BV is something to be excited about.
  3. Sad to hear that. He was one of the first "speedsters".
  4. From New Jersey. Played at Penn. He didn’t take the Temple job which was surprising to everyone.
  5. Same reason I thought Venables would stick at Clemson. 1. He has job security. The head coach is here for the long haul. For better or worse. 2. He gets to coach/mentor under a top head coach. 3. He is one of the top paid coordinators and doesn’t have to have responsibilities as a head coach. He was offered the Temple job but he makes almost as much at A&M and has half the responsibility. 4. He has a lot of awesome recruiting from above that is loading his defense up with talent.
  6. Smh NIL is gonna absolutely kill college athletics. I don't blame Texas one bit for throwing together a program like this. It's within the rules, so go for it. I'm sure others will follow.
  7. Yeah, I guess Baylor makes sense to me a LITTLE more because they turned around and beat a team that beat them. But they still ended with two losses, one of those to TCU. Georgia only had one loss, and it was to Alabama.
  8. I get ND, but Baylor? Ohio State? They lost 2 games whereas Georgia lost one.
  9. Nah. Losing to TCU hurts, though they did beat the other team that beat them before. I wouldn't hate it if Baylor were there.
  10. That's definitely PI. So was the one today. Officials are hilariously bad this year, in every conference. They miss blatant stuff right in front of their faces. They missed a few in the A&M/LSU game. It is what it is. Hopefully something changes.
  11. What a stop by Baylor!!! That defender took a good angle, had good speed, and good physicality to stop the runner from scoring. Textbook.
  12. The defender was literally holding the receiver's wrist. Did you miss that?
  13. Who? And what are their sources? But yeah, Mark Stoops would be infinitely better than Bill O'Brian.
  14. Yep. He went with the "if you can't beat em, join em" idea. He alway struggled with good, fast spread teams. A&M, Auburn under Malzahn, Hugh Freeze at Ole Miss.... So he finally just started doing the same thing with better players. LSU did it in 2019 too.
  15. Is Riley one of the best, though? He was handed an already-made program and won a lot of games against a conference that was largely down for the last few years. But when they got into the playoffs, the games weren't even close, other than that one Georgia game (which was literally the first year after Stoops was gone, so it was a team that he had built).
  16. Yep. The successful teams in the Big XII already are. Even Iowa State last year was doing it with 2-3 star guys.
  17. Why not both? Look what Aranda is doing at Baylor. Aranda is an SEC guy through and through. And toughness with strong defense may very well win the Big XII this year.
  18. Yep. That was Sumlin to a T. The "race to 40" game may be fun and all but it will get you blown out against a more physical team. Oh and when you can't move the ball, guys no longer keep that attitude and fire going.
  19. Yeeeahhh I've never really been sold on Riley or Ryan Day for the same reasons. They were both handed well-oiled machines and have only been tasked with not screwing things up. Call me crazy, but I think a Stoops-coached 2017 team beats Georgia and possibly Alabama. And I think Urban at OSU would've at least competed for a title. I know OSU technically played for a title last year, but that game was no contest.
  20. I mean would A&M have to match it, though? If you're making $9 million a year, what is another $3 million, honestly? Also, Jimbo seems far more motivated by facilities and support of fans/alumns, not compensation.
  21. A&M has recruited and developed TEs. Sternberger wasn't a highly-sought after guy, but he got himself an NFL deal through Jimbo. I wonder if that was what was pitched to Stowers.
  22. Yep. If a guy is set to be a #3 or even a #2 in many cases, the portal is easy to hop into. So teams can't really keep a viable backup option. That may be why Jimbo was converting Stowers to TE- because he knew that keeping Stowers as a third string QB might make him look elsewhere. It's kinda damned if you do, damned if you don't at this point.
