  1. I've only seen a positive response from the athletes... so really interested to see how this plays out.
  2. the meaning of the song has completely changed over time. I didn’t even know of the racist origins until now, and I had season tickets since before I was a freshman in ‘00. it’s not quite the same thing as honoring a racist person by naming a building or erecting a statue. i’d love to hear what prior players have to say about it.

  6. That guy hasn't sniffed the lineup there, and he apparently isn't going to sniff it again (hence the transfer). Are we sure we want that guy? Kinda depends on how WR is going next year.
  7. So, is he going to sit out or not?
  8. I liked it (didn't really like the last episode), but I like nearly everything that is mindless entertainment. JM was the best part.
  9. Consider this - Texas Football is a platform for many young men, including Eagles. If Eagles decides not to play, I'd support him keeping his scholarship this year and assist him in any way possible to make sure his voice is heard. A single action like this would not degrade the platform (whether he will have a big enough platform to make a difference is another conversation). The platform would be degraded, however, if the entire team decides not to play. Then you don't have Texas football nor the platform that is Texas football and what comes after. Maybe it would be worth it to them to halt football for a year while they sit out to get a message across. Will this advance the message enough to matter? I don't know - but if they harm their platform, it may not be worth it in the long run. He needs to play the long game, although I recognize there is some value in striking while the iron is hot.
  10. We'd never do that to one player. What if 10 do it though? 30? Every player? I'm glad I don't have to make those kind of decisions!
  11. He does have some dumbass takes on sports... but he's doing a great job with the present movement, and his platform and sphere's of influence have exploded.
  12. This. But I don't think it will work out the way he wants without the platform. I have a hard time imagining we will keep him on scholarship to not play - if only because we can't do that for all the players who would want to follow suit (and you better believe the dominoes will fall). There have got to be alternatives where his voice will actually be amplified rather than snuffed out as he falls into obscurity for his remaining time at Texas. The players should look at Acho right now - he's a pretty big voice out there now and without football he would never have gotten there. He's a great model for these guys to follow.
  13. Star Wars is motherfucking BACK. "This is the way."
  14. My guess is that somehow these are tied up with deals with cable/netflix, etc. The Mandalorian alone would be worth the price for me, but I'm a nerd.
