The best part is we have a superior RB and WR's to match up well with theirs. Sark is a great offensive mind, so I won't be  as nervous this year. 

It's a rivalry game. I am a basket of nerves every year. Hell I was nervous when the 05 team ran them out of the cotton bowl.

I work closely with a certain previously committed 5 star QB's father (hint: its Quinn Ewers, for those who haven't been following recruiting closely like I have) and chatted with him a bit this after

I find all of the angst about Murphy to be laughable. After Ewers, he's the guy I've been cheering for Texas to land for 3 weeks. Texas has a healthy QB room right now and that isn't going to change.

Would definitely suck to lose him. Also would be a really, really bad fit based on what Jimbo looks for in a WR. 
 

Seems like it’d be a transfer after sophomore year kind of situation when he’s just running jet sweeps. 

Look at Demas.

I guess 1 and 2 are the opposite ends, get him back into the class at any cost vs never allow him back under any circumstance. 

3 is just kind of a baffling position that exists on its own. 

3 ensures Ewers and his family will have a chance to watch Texas football in the fall and be comfortable with the commitment. There is no chance of another public embarrassment for Texas. Their family is looking for a program that will compete at a high level. OSU is the comfort pick right now. If he flips to us now and we have a bad season, he won't stick and may cause a ripple effect late in the cycle.

I had longhorn games as a priority from 1994-2019.  Maybe missed 5 total games in that span. 

Herman coaching and Sam playing fullback didn't make me be anti-UT...but all of a sudden in 2020, I would go with my wife to my daughter's play dates and soccer games that I normally would get out of 11 or 12x a year because the family became a higher priority on fall Saturdays. 

All I ask is for Sark to let me ignore my family again for a few months.  Make the world right again. 

I got several texts this season along the lines of “What is going on with your team?/Lol did you see that? What was Herman thinking?/We are terrible”

my response: “Yeah I quit watching awhile ago”

I can’t decide if I hated Tom Herman or what he was doing to my team more.

I’m really glad we’ve got a “Hype Season” that’s going so well. Can’t wait to see the X’s and O’s this Fall.

I was there. I can vouch. Tex Pete literally did his best impression of a regarded Adrian Peterson with a high ankle sprain as he gimped into the middle of the Ou band, which was marching through the midway into the stadium before the game. And when I say, the middle, I mean trombones in his face and flutes in his ass. He could not have been more in the middle the band. 

We had outstanding seats, so Larry Burdine could hear Pete clearly during timeouts as Pete yelled, “Do you see what happens, Larry? Do you see what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass?!?!” 
 

He was in rare form. It was glorious.

This was the one and ONLY time I’ve ever had the balls to sit in the South End of the Cotton Bowl, in the middle of enemy territory. 
And man was it was fun to watch VY hit Billy Pitman on the wheel route.

Then to see Robinson and the advent of “Bomar’d” with Big ol’ Rod Wright’s scoop & score...just glorious.  

@sark/ That was fun. Let’s do that again.

Super K on Brandon Harris

  Reveal hidden contents

Earlier this week, Texas Director of Recruiting, Brandon Harris was offered a NFL position. Soon after the offer was made, we were told that Harris would likely be accepting the position.

I am told that this may no longer be the case.

Source indicated that coach Sarkisian spoke with Harris today and was apparently extremely convincing. I’m told he laid out a compelling vision for Harris’ future growth at Texas.

As of Friday evening, I’m told things went from he was as good as gone to, he’s leaning towards staying.

Before I waste people's time with reposting it, was Gerry's best case scenario class prediction article from yesterday posted? 

Oh boy. Time for Nahlin to start thinking of it as the expected class and get really in his feelings if it doesn't happen.

IT Recruiting Matters: My 2022 best class scenario 

You want a top 5 class? Well, I’ll give you a top 5 class … scenario.

Let me be clear, this is my best class scenario for Texas. And for those that don’t know my background, I wanted JT Barrett over Tyrone Swoopes, I prefer a first year head coach locks down the state, especially with this otherworldly 2022 class of ballers, and I didn’t put a future forecast of Texas in for Jason Llewellyn a few minutes before he committed to Oklahoma.

So what do I know? Hell if I know. But here goes my best class scenario for the Longhorns with the understanding that the Texas staff may well look at prospects and positions differently and the recruiting board is always moving in Austin.

QB Quinn Ewers, Southlake Carroll (Ohio State commit)
6-3, 210, his IT handle is @UTwuz

QB Maalik Murphy, Junipero Serra (Texas commit)
6-5, 225, big arm and big personality

RB Jaydon Blue, Klein Cain (Texas commit)
5-10.5, 205, Blues Clues

RB Feeling bigger back take as No. 2 in the class
6-0, 200+, downhill hammer with feet in the hole

WR Evan Stewart, Frisco Liberty (Texas commit)
6-0, 175, blur.0

WR Brenen Thompson, Spearman
5-10, 165, blur.0

WR Jordan Hudson, Garland High (Oklahoma commit)
6-1, 180, best ball skills in America in 2022

WR Chris Marshall, Fort Bend Marshall
6-3, 195, 20 points per game in hoops in Fort Bend ISD!

WR Armani Winfield, Lewisville (Texas commit)
6-2, 180, Margin Hooks

TE N/A
0-0, 000, 0.0

OT Neto Umeozulu, Allen
6-4, 300, Texas owns Allen High

OT Kelvin Banks, Summer Creek
6-5, 300, plays for Kenny Harrison

OT Jacob Sexton, Deer Creek
6-5, 285, Bryan White, Keith Frierson and Mike Garcia helping recruit this big fella

OT/G Kam Dewberry, Atascocita
6-4, 320, 82-inch wingspan Kyle Flood will use to fight off Texas A&M

OG Devon Campbell, Arlington Bowie
6-4, 305, @WilliamsDavid will do 1,500 fingertip pushups at IT's Coastal Plains Happy Hour if Campbell signs with Texas

OG Connor Robertson or Cole Hutson
Texas should win out on one of the two.

DT Jaray Bledsoe, Bremond
6-4, 270, TexAgs should film documentary

DT Kristopher Ross, North Shore
6-3, 265, family connection to Nipsey Hussle

DE/EDGE Derrick Brown, Texas High
6-4.5, 205, thinks @Justin Wells is a close talker

DE/EDGE D.J. Wesolak, Booneville (MO)
6-5, 236, good buddy in area, Tyson Ford, is a verbal to ND

LB Trevell Johnson, Arlington Martin
6-1, 200, loves special teams contact

LB Harold Perkins, Cy Park
6-2.5, 200, Aggie lock from New Orleans that likes Alabama and loves Tim Brewster

S Bryan Allen Jr., Aledo
6-0, 190, favorite IT poster is @keganr

N/CB/S Bryce Anderson, Beaumont West Brook
5-11, 185, James Brown vs. Chip Ambres recruitment … you know James loves predictions!

N/CB Jaylon Guilbeau, Port Arthur Memorial
6-0, 180, Golden Triangle toughness

CB/N/S Terrance Brooks, Plano John Paul II
5-11, 185, George Teague/Chet Brooks/Mom loves Bay Area

CB Denver Harris, North Shore
6-1, 180, Eric Nahlin with a percentage of 100

K Blake Ford, Arlington Lamar
6-0, 190, Chris Sailer No. 1 ranked 2022 kicker

Notes:
*That would be a class of 20’ish 4-star/5-star prospects, which will get you in the top 5 in the 2022 cycle.

*Texas would absolutely send a message that the Longhorns intend to sign as many top prospects from inside the state lines as possible.

*Went with six OL’s out of program need, likely one more than the staff will go with.

*If it’s five OL’s, expectation is another DE/EDGE prospect or a sixth DB.

I'm always a basket of nerves, but this time I really think Sark will know what to do and not have his ass puckered. He knows how to prepare and we have a shit ton of skill position players to match up with. Of course, I'm saying this in February and October is a long time away, so we'll see how I'm feeling then.

i am not sure we have superior WRs

Yeah, I shouldn't have said that. I should have said we have a good team of receivers that can match, but there's have been in a system far longer. But the good news is Riley has no idea how to prepare for what Sark will throw out there, and between Bijan, Josh Moore, and a healthy Whittington, I'd be surprised if we didn't look like the better team. But I'm also biased, so ou will forever suck and we're better.

A healthy Whittington seems like less than a sure thing.

Sark schemes matchups and runs plays that work into the ground until they’re stopped. Grinch, and the rest of the B12 will have to match athletes. blOU has the athletes on defense, but can Grinch keep them from thinking too much with the amount of moving around Sark will force them to do? Or can we force them into soft coverage and dink and dunk them into oblivion? I’m really excited for the creative dcs that try to disguise zone pressure, but Grinch is smarter than that (I think)

Yeah, definitely. I was gonna add in Omeire too, but again, can he even play yet? I'd like to see Marcus Washington finally put it together with a fresh slate. Same with Jake Smith. I don't know how much Sark uses the TE, but I'd like to see him utilize Wiley properly.

Appreciate the breakdown. That's very cool, and I agree 100% with you.

Am I reading this wrong, or does Gerry think we're getting Ewers and Murphy?
