Still think you are short a receiver. But that could certainly be addressed post spring practice. 

Worthy, Billingsly, Neyor, Whittington and Thompson sounds pretty good to me, although I would prefer Rice, Irvin, Moss and Megatron as well.

Majors can absolutely get better with another offseason and camp. That’s doesn’t mean we sit by and not try to get another player from the portal. But absolutely every single player in that group that is not severely limited physically can improve.

Whittington and Thompson likely won't play much due to injuries and Neymar hasn't even committed.

If we land Mathis, Neyor, Moody, and Bini, I think we still have room for two more, be it late additions to the class or transfers. I think at that point you wait for difference making best players available regardless of position, aside from QB or RB. Or maybe an elite younger guy from 2021 or a 2022 who's already made it to campus who we missed on the first time around.

Herman's teams were undisciplined, with physically weak offensive lines who couldn't run the ball outside of Ehlinger hero ball and had running backs and WR's who looked and moved like LB's by their 3rd year on campus. If the S&C was so good Yancy McKnight wouldn't be unemployed for the second straight offseason. Herman mastered the late score to make thorough beatings looks like close defeats (Maryland 2017, OSU 2018, OU 2019, Baylor 2019). His teams were whipped plenty of times and I don't give out lollipops for playing through the whistle. We played through the whistle against Kansas after trailing by 21 at half this year if we want to hang our hat on that.

The "physicality" of Herman's teams was definitely overrated but this is just silly. Look at every single bowl game we played under Herman; the common theme is that we were physical as hell and wore down the opponent over the course of the game. When Sark makes a bowl game of his own we can revisit this argument.

So when we physically whipped OU, OSU and Baylor for a half, that wasn't because of S&C but when we lost the leads it was because of S&C?

Cool.  That's not where LSU listed him on the depth chart in 2019 or 2020.

2019:

2020:

LSU based out of an odd front (3 man line) where the OLB was a standup edge player, so Ray Thornton was an edge player for them too.

Lulz.  Another gem from Volnation...

 

Quote

Sark: "Hey...look what I did somewhere else with an O that was loaded at everyone spot....oh, don't worry about what I did here last year....that was just 1st year issues"

Heup: "Hey...look what I did here last year with whatever talent I inherited...my best WR was a 2* just like you...and oh yeah, he's back so defenses won't be able to focus on you...and our QB is back...honestly, why are you even thinking about the other UT"

Moody is the only guy that fits that description.

In the 2019 depth chart I would assume OLB/EDGE is the position K'Lavion C was playing/listed at.  Thornton was not listed as his backup - he's listed as the starter on the other side - but maybe he was flipping over and backing him up.  In the 2020 depth chart they list out 2 DTs and 2 DE's and have Thornton backing up Baskerville at OLB.

No, but I'm fine believing Moody is better than the guy who started in the middle for Texas in 2021.

At this point I am tired of worrying about the OL every year. It has been a consistent probably for the better part of 2 decades. I am happy to give up some wins in 2022, if it means they continue to stock OL recruits. Only way to fix the problem long term is to continue load up on the younger classes. Grad transfers will help, but that is a short term fix. You are not going to bat 1.000 every year fishing OL out of the portal. I'd be a huge portal fan, if I thought Texas had a chance at the playoffs next year.

Great, TE, Not here yet, always hurt, true freshman. 
If we got Neyor in the portal that would be 2 guys I trust at WR. Better than the 1 currently that we have, and sark doesn’t play a ton of 4 and 5 WR sets, but going into a year without 3 proven WR seems light- especially with a 1 (or 1.5) man WR class coming in. 
They should be looking to take 2 portal WR. The room is in that bad a shape.

Huh. I guess that's the aggie way to see it. Mostly, I think it's just the fact that Nick Saban is an Imp of Satan and enjoys violently buttfucking other grown men in public against their will. It might help keep him young, along with feeding on the fresh blood of small children.

shit is there another all conference Center available or did Baylor take that one again?

There have been a ton of good OL in the portal again this year. Guys that would be immediate starters and upgrades. Ole Miss got a western Kentucky OL who was all conference, UVA had multiple good OL transfer and there’s many more. We haven’t gone after them.

in the era of the portal, there’s no fucking reason to go into next year hoping on a whim that Majors finally learns to anchor as your only real option at Center. Grab a transfer OL so you have more than option at finding a quality starter at one of the most important positions in the offense.

That begins the process of cycling out the staff, with Kwiatkowski being driven to the city limits and thrown out of a slow rolling vehicle headed north, and Patterson is then named the "interim" DC for the remainder of the year.  

And this is the second best result we could hope for long term for the program, probably, behind us winning.

Gotta admit, I did not have "CTJ outed as a Q member" on my offseason bingo card.

Maybe we will beat them by 55.

Coaching?

If we get those transfers, I won’t consider talent or depth to be an overarching concern; these will be the 5 questions going into the season (in order):

1. How good can Quinn Ewers be in 2022?

2. How good can an OL be when the 2 deep will be made up of 5 experienced holdovers from last years shitty unit combined with 5 highly touted true freshmen?

3. Can our coaches effectively utilize the talent and depth in the front 6-7?

4. Can the veteran DBs hold things down until the inexperienced depth asserts itself?

5. Can the kicker be good enough to keep from costing us a game?

tbey should be looking to take 2 portal WR. The room is in that bad a shape. 

I'd rather have 2 portal edges than 2 WRs if we had to choose. I think one good portal WR is ok when combined with Worthy, JWhitt when healthy, Billingsley as a TE/WR hybrid, and possible step ups from Dixon and Washington (both of whom should be ok as depth guys imo). Then wild cards like Thompson, Alexis, and Omeire. So your main receiving options would basically be Worthy, JWhitt, Portal guy, and Billingsley, with the rest as backups. I can live with that for sure.

Meanwhile at edge we have 2-sack Ovie, out of position Collins, and a bunch of guys who've basically never played (Sorrell being the most notable so far). We have to land Mathis but then you're still starting Ovie and with very little depth. Need 2 there.

the world is thinking Bama is going to blow Texas out. Their defense got much better over the course of the year and they are bringing back a good chunk of the starters. They have a Heisman QB. Texas will set the record for the largest home dog in Texas history in week 2.

I'm hoping Marion can work magic with Washington and Dixon. Washington was an All-American in high school, played in the AA game. Dixon was higher rated than most of the WRs we have been anxious to pull out of the portal. Maybe a developmental coach will be the difference.

In a world with zero initial counter caps maybe that would be the case, but fishing for a center upgrade in the portal is further down the hierarchy of needs than getting:

1) a viable edge rusher that can pressure opposing QBs while holding up in the run game

2) a competent off-ball LB that can get off blocks 

3) a safety that can reliably run the alley and make open field tackles 

4) a WR that can consistently make contested catches 

5) a OT that isn't a total turnstile in pass pro nor a drive killing penalty machine 

Maybe some true freshman or existing roster guys can step up to fill some of these needs, but that's where I see room for the portal to help the most.

I think this is pretty spot on. 1-3 in particular.

And I have tempered expectations on all three of those. 1. Because Ewers is inexperienced and will play like a Freshman which he basically is, 2. Again, expect Freshmen mistakes combined with some of the jokers from last year, and 3. Bc last year was so ugly and the staff is the same (except GP).

Not trying to be negative either because I think #1 and #2 will actually be strengths longer term (late next year or 2023 season). Just a lot of youngsters that will need time to develop.

Hopefully so. Also iirc one rumor was that Dixon struggled to learn the playbook last year so maybe by year 2 he will have had enough time to really learn it.

that was the short-lived Pelini defense that a tweener like Thornton didn't really fit and that they ultimately abandoned when they canned him. I didn't watch a lot of '21 LSU so have no idea what they ran last year or what the new staff there is going to run, but altering scheme on the regular is a sure recipe for bad defenses

I think everybody should be expecting growing pains with Ewers and the offense.  Not terrible but also not consistent.

The biggest room for improvement is on defense.  We were abysmal.

If we can get to average, that would be a big improvement.

Sark has made a bet on consistency and continuity.

Let's hope it's a good one.

That is where Texas was last year. There can definitely be some improvement there. Ewers may make mistakes, but I think his overall play will be better than the disaster we saw at Qb last year. Defense only needs to be a consistent speed bump to be better than last year, you would have to work hard to make it worse.
