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.

Can vouch for UT’s bio program. Had kids crying during our O-chem 2 final. When applying to grad school the counselor at my new school said my 3.4 at UT was like a 3.8 from other Texas schools.

uh, ochem has nothing to do with the bio program, buddy.

Well I for one, am glad that Caden is leaving. He's also in for a rude awakening with NFL ownership and management. The more he keeps commenting on social media, the more he's sinking his future chances. 

One of those guys who always has a burr in his saddle.

That said, he's perfectly within his rights to comment on what he experienced, but you're right that NFL owners/GMs aren't exactly the most receptive group to this kind of thing.

It's definitely his right. This is America after all. But actions have consequences.

He joined a program with certain requirements. He chose to stick around and not abide by said requirements with no concrete evidence for his argument for not being in compliance. 

I hope he gets better ppl in his corner ASAP because the trendy thing to do isn't always the best option.

Laughable. “Some alumni” probably means some aggy on Twitter like Daniel figurelli.  If you got receipts, nows the time playa.

Lmao. The University just had an expose against it published that showed that the football program has some extremely racist and very vocal boosters and y'all's first thought after seeing a player's firsthand experiences is "proof?" and "well he's always complaining about something". Fucking pathetic.

Man, this Murphy fella is hard at it recruiting for the good guys. Love it. 

yeah, i have no idea what type of recruiter ewers is, but maalik is at it nonstop and seems to have the type of personality and attitude other top players gravitate towards.  ewers could prove to be a better college quarterback, but i feel like we're in great shape with this take.

I see you defending Caden in several threads. What's the deal? Are you his gf or a relative? He is a selfish bitch and deserves to be called out.

This is why I liked Maalik from the beginning and didn't care for whether Ewers came back or not. You just get certain vibe from certain players and others tend to gravitate towards them.

Alrighty, I know I helped instigate but lets move this kind of stuff to the designated EOT kiddy pool and focus only on the narrow recruiting aspects here as they arise. Otherwise it'll just be a shitshow.

Brace yourselves! But Hudson liked this tweet so found it relevant.

Buckle your straps. Just a hunch guys but he’s committing in 3 days. Have a gut feeling about it. Based purely on hour glasses.

When it comes to Jordan Hudson, I'm with Snacks Coburn. I don't want a recruit that poses with the Horns down at every given opportunity. There are literally multiple top WR recruits this cycle and Texas already has two committed.

He's a 17 year old kid doing what gets him the most likes on Twitter/Instagram, it's not that serious

No, you don't know what you're watching. We went through this that night. That ball was underthrown by at least 4 yards and you must think Kelvontay Dixon has really short legs if you think he has a 1 yard stride. He broke stride and slowed down significantly on that play but most people didn't notice because he did it very early in the ball's flight in order to accelerate through the ball, which is the entire point. Bad deep receivers don't slow down until the end and it's obvious.

Try not to be so wrong when you call someone else out. And also don't make middle school mistakes like typing core instead of corps.

He didn’t have to come to a stop, the throw also didn’t allow the defender to get in position to make a play on the ball. So I’ll stick with her barely had to break stride. Was it the best possible throw? No, was it sufficient, yes, Eagles and the rest of WRs seldomly got that luxury. But yeah the balls to Eagles were under thrown because he didn’t slow down soon enough lmao. We saw balls so short the trailing DB couldn’t even make plays on them. And I know what I’m watching. Some of you just get real loony when it comes to the expectations of receivers.

Sione didn't make it to the NFL beyond practice squads. In fact he was working for a moving company (in Houston I believe) before he jumped at a chance in the XFL.

Funny how I still remember an interview he did and he cited 'Coach Giles' (totally mispronounced Giles's name) as one of the reasons he committed to Texas. 

 

 

 

 

Well now I’m curious. 
 

was it a soft g like hiles?

was it a hard g like j Giles band?

was it like an old Pasadena honkeytonk?

Hard G and then he was gently corrected by an adult that was with him at the interview.

Considering horns down is pretty much the OU hand sign, why do we care he's doing it as an OU commit?  I have more issue with a recruit committing to Ohio State and doing the horns down than I do with a sooner doing it

Exactly. OU entire existence is basically just a troll job. It’s adorable in its own way.

4 yards seems like a bit of an exaggeration to me. You can see the entire route at 1:17. It could have been out there a hair more, but that's as good of a pass as we've seen a Texas QB throw in about a decade. I don't really see Dixon slowing down that much, even early in the play.

And the word is corpse. As in, he ran past that dude like he was a corpse.

THANK YOU.
 

Let’s get back on track. Even if that track is arguing semantics over an obscure pass that I don’t even remember much about

Let's be real.  Caden does not have much of a future in the NFL.  Better focus on being a trainer or something.
