  1. Honestly, I’d rather have SMU’s coach. Sonny dykes is more proven.
  2. [emoji23] I should’ve added that I’m sure he’s still gonna start and either way a&m loses.
  3. I saw somewhere that dart was horrible in the spring game. The other QB was better. But it’s just the spring.
  4. I know it’s a joke but it seems like jimbo hasn’t been using the portal. Maybe because they spent so much on this class. I just recall 2 players he’s gotten. Could be more.
  5. Just curious, but for that players tribune article by Quinn did they pay him for that?
  6. Number 1. On tapa so can’t copy and paste but the part of 1 year rentals. Really? If those 1 year rentals got you a championship who would care?? Even just to the playoffs. Honestly we’re so down that if we’re being honest one year rentals who could at least win us a big xii championship would be fine. I understand the, where’s the honor, pride, etc.. but come on because that’s what these 18-20 year olds are really thinking. They aren’t at all thinking of the money they could be making right now to help their family or even selfish reasons. Unfortunately I love Texas, but if someone offered me anything close to what these kids are getting. Even the “chump” change Barron could be getting. I would be gone in a heartbeat. Especially with the shit show that texas is at the moment. It would be another story if we were in the conversations for playoffs but to die on the field just to get bowl eligible? No thanks. We saw it before NIL, kids leaving early for the draft and not even getting drafted but the chance to at least make the practice squad and some money. As much as we can argue it isn’t fair, it’s ruining college football,etc…like we’re really gonna stop watching. If that last 10 years didn’t make us, this sure as hell won’t lol. It boils down to money and championships. “ We aren’t going to win championships playing by the rules. I wish we could but that’s not the reality. How much is bama willing to spend? Heck, how much have they spent. Even Georgia. It’s all worth it if it gets you the W’s. Every one is mad at Lincoln Riley but it’s obvious he is trying to win now. Don’t we wish sark is being cut throat like him? TLDR; Scared money don’t make no money.
  7. This is the thing. Yeah 600k is a lot. Is he worth it probably not. But you have to be all in if you are (money wise). He alone is not worth it. But if you were to keep spending to get other portals to add more value on the defense then yeah it’s worth it. One guy isn’t going to fix this shit show. We need a lot of dudes.
  8. What about that dude who transferred from here to Miami. DB. I believe he plays in the NFL now
  9. We go through this every year and their season total wins ends up being better than we all thought. So I’ll go with 8 wins no matter who’s at QB.
  10. I kinda wish we could see Tom against bama. Yes he should’ve been fired and glad he’s not here but he never got blown out so curious if bama would’ve finally done that. I mean we all know what bama is gonna do to sark. Anyway, if card, a third year player is running close with Ewers, it’s Ewers job. But yeah beating Kansas is a good start and not losing a huge ass lead, would be a good season.
  11. Is that a longhorn tattoo?
  12. Nahlin didn’t put a percentage for manning? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Counter, sark may not even be the coach at Texas by the time he starts.
  14. When strong was hired- we just had hope, we knew Mack fucked the roster up so we felt bad for strong plus he was nice. We all know he was a terrible coach. Recruiting was fun, although he only had top 10 classes. Herman- long live hope. At least we had winning seasons. players hated him, we did too because he was an asshole. He had to go. Sark- one year in and we already know he isn’t going to work. I hope he proves us wrong and I’ll watch till the bitter end. I don’t know which situation is worse. I feel like we all agree we are going to get embarrassed when Alabama comes into town. So yeah, why the hell would anyone want to come here? You have atm paying a ridiculous amount. We make fun of 8-4, but I’d take that over whatever the hell has been going on the past 10 years here minus the 10 win season. They’re riding on having the number 1 class, beating bama (lol) and we literally have nothing. I agree, we can hope Ewers and the young OL and please god, a competent defense can put a quality product on the field but the 2023 guys aren’t waiting that long. And if the BMD’s aren’t gonna pony up and get dirty then that’s on them. Probably the only thing that can hold this together. I take responsibility that I’m not a BMD. I’m just a poor SOB, so my fault too. But fuck ‘em! I’ll hope till the very end damnit. (What Urban did at Jacksonville isn’t that bad, right)
  15. My bad, I meant if he’s only had 1 top 25 defense how did he become a HC
  16. Doesn’t belong here but can’t find the right thread. Anyway why did mason resign?? I saw the ok state smoke but he doesn’t have any better options? Isn’t he supposed to be a good head dc.
  17. So how did durkin get a HC job? Curious, never knew about the guy until the dead player. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Besides the killing part, is he good?
