2020 Texas Football Season Thread: Win or GTFO

Recommended Posts

Listening to Herman's press conference,  something that should benefit deeper teams that recruit well is the ability to play all of the freshman this year. It should help our special teams I would think.

Yancy's got the team looking great.

Wiley's whole look is peak "small town Texas redneck or Burnley backup centreback?"

So K-State and Iowa State have their Bands at the games today.  Hope CDC finds a way to have Longhorn Band at TCU game...

It’s the first game.  But yeah, they both look terrible.  Obviously they will be better when we play them.  
 

We need to fuck the big 12 up this year like you said.

I-State ALWAYS looks bad in their first game under Campbell. No bearing on their midseason form.

true, but this year they might just be bad.  Purdy is so overrated and their offense is so blah........

Obviously it's too early to know for sure, but what's happening with Foster, Cook, Green, Eagles, Epps, etc. might suggest the failures of the previous coaches had less to do with scheme and more to do with culture/entitlement.  For this many starters to become bench players as they become upper classmen suggests either evaluation or true competition wasn't happening before.

Or the younger guys fit the scheme better and are just as talented if not more talented.

I've heard this numerous times but I just don't buy it.  We can say the corners switched because they're asked to bump and run more in quarters, but Green spent most of the time doing this last year.  Brown isn't being asked to do things drastically differently than what Foster was asked to do.  The scheme for Eagles and Epps didn't change that drastically.

Again, time will tell.

All of those guys except Epps were takes for every program in the country. The evals weren't the problem.

Brown is a better safety than Foster full stop.  Foster's future, anywhere he goes, is to be closer to the LOS .  Im confident the staff wants him there, so his playing time issues are his own
