Or more simply, now he won't waste a scholarship for another year or two.  Sign another tackle this cycle.  

 

I also wonder what bullshit explanation he will give when he requests a waiver to be immediately eligible.  (Was herb too mean to him?)

gonna need to come up with a relative that has an "illness".

NCAA has kind of shut that down / changed it now, right? IIRC they made a change part way through this offseason on it

My money is definitely on aggy as his landing spot..

And may be a bumpy landing if they don't start him right away.


Have you seen their oline?

Man... Someone close to him needs to get his fucking mind right. If he stays, he needs to stfu and let his play do all the talking. Be a sponge and absorb everything being taught. Don't take it personally when someone gets on him. They're literally telling you they care enough to point out you could improve. 

This is the best possible place for him. It's sad his circle isn't pushing him to realize it.

whatever, we need every fucking option we can possibly get for the oline, the jag line has got to stop

Per @smakashart on the Recruiting board, he told Marcus Washington on Instagram live that he was taking his name out of the portal.

Is the expectation that Hand is gone too?

Auburn's oline sure looks better since he left and ours still can't run block worth a shit for 2 plays in a row. Wasn't that his specialty?

We couldn't run the ball and gave up the most sacks in B12 play, so I sure fucking hope our new OC gets to pick his own OL coach.

I think our offensive line is getting a bad rap. They weren't world beaters but it's not easy when you're blocking the exact same run play 25 times per game and the defense knows where the ball is going.

Has anyone anywhere confirmed this Shepherd thing? A friend looked last night after the post on OBs, including on his Instagram story, and didn't see anything like what's been mentioned

I think we’re just so used to blaming the OL at this point that it’s a combination of habit and seeing things in those terms.

Most of the Big XII offenses are geared towards making their OLs look better. Herman managed to make his look significantly worse than it was, aside from the few games where he decided to put in a creative gameplan.

when your 5 can't block 3 (see Baylor) then your bad rap is earned.

If nothing else, that converted Freshman was a fucking beast all things considered.  He should see the field as much as possible, IMHO, in some form or fashion whether RB, WR, QB going forward.  Does he have any brothers, cousins,  to recruit?  Clone ROJO's attitude to everyone on the team and it would be a better team immediately.

I believe that it’s because it’s on Instagram live which doesn’t save on their profile

This guy is gonna be in and out of the portal like it’s South Austin’s mom. I sure hope we never put ourselves in a position where we’re counting on him to be our left tackle or anything.

I'm going to disagree.  I think if he decides to stay that it shows a hell of a lot of maturity on his part. It would be pretty humbling for him to pull out of the portal and stay at this point.  I think if he does that he has probably matured to the point of being past a lot of the drama.  He might still would transfer in the future but I'm betting that would be for playing time only to go to a small school for his final year.

Sure, because 19 year old flakes magically mature over a 2 month period all the time.   If the coaching staff wants to give him another shot, fine, but decent odds he's back in the portal the minute he's not announced as a starter next year.

The kid hasn't been cured of being a flake, that's for sure.

But one thing IS certain, and at this point I think it's pretty undeniable just how much of a cancer Mehringer was to this program, growing unchecked under Herman's nose, that a player like Shepherd would even consider returning simply because of his removal. Or maybe it was Orlando or Fedora, or Meekins that Shepherd wanted to murder.

Just kidding, it was fucking mehringer. And if he was that fucking bad (we've known for years) then his hiring and retained employment over 3 years is inexcusable and fucking pathetic. But good news, we'll bring in Chris Ash, a guy who's so perceptive he also hired Mehringer and got along with him. Our defense and program culture will be in great hands.
