  1. I can’t get over how bad Dilbert’s logic is. Just staggeringly dumb.
  2. Coordinating NIL seems like one of the biggest opportunities left for unscrupulous coaches and programs to continue to unscruple. Every program is operating with what essentially amounts to an NIL budget. It may be poorly defined, it probably varies a lot from year-to-year, and it's certainly not public information, but no one out there save maybe Oregon has an endless fountain of cash to draw from. In any setting of limited resources, it becomes a problem of how best to allocate said resources. So naturally that creates a big incentive for the coaches to communicate to the collectives/BMDs along the lines of: "this is a recruit that we absolutely have to have" "we really need to keep this particular guy out of the portal" "this isn't a guy that's a big part of our future plans" "this guy needs to get X to commit but we think we can get an equivalent player for Y where Y < X" I'm not naive enough to think that kind of communication absolutely is not taking place at Texas, but we also know that We're Texas and we love nothing more than fucking ourselves with the big, splintery wooden Dildo of Compliance. I really doubt that a program like say, aggy or Tennessee, to give a couple random examples, sees it the same way, regardless of the fact that "That's Not How This is All Supposed to Work!".
  3. How have they not already moved on to “Trump took nuclear secrets to MAL to keep them out of the hands of liberal socialists that hate America!!”? I mean, c’mon, it’s sitting right there.
  4. Everyone's debating the fruit, but I'm 100% triggered that they fucking poured all that syrup and managed to get it on like 1/4 of the pancake. Spread that shit around.
  5. I like this plan. By that point Whittington will be injured so we can just swap them out 1-for-1.
  6. Hope we get a 12 minute highlight video of Garland playing peewee AG.
  7. We might deserve it, but our children don't.
  8. State of Florida seems stacked with talent this year. Let’s get Wilson and Hall so Sark can have his own Florida Four.
  9. So much going on here. Don Jr looks like he has diarrhea. Jared beelining over like "hey guys, I'm still in the family! Remember? It's me, Jared!"
  10. Coach's quotes sound good. "Texas, Texas, Texas, Texas, Texas....oh yeah, he also thinks he'd be fine at Tennessee."
  11. That seems like something Trump needs to get in front of SCOTUS pronto.
  12. I'm shellshocked from last year's fuckery. I'm seeing aggy bags coming out of the trees, man.
  13. Decommit szn is certainly funny but Rogers bailing is actually bad for us if he's LSU bound, which looks likely. Just makes A&M that much more desperate for Toviano. We know the game plan when they get desperate for a particular guy.
  14. My assumption was that he recommended regular dental check-ups.
  15. Burrell is OK to me. I see a contributor but not a star. I like Lefau's tape (no idea what kind of competition he's playing against) but my concern there is can he get up to 230 and maintain his quickness? Given the shape our LB room is in, I really think we need a 3rd guy, and he needs to be a no-doubt stud. I wouldn't really argue against Baxter/Wisner as an A+. I'm not as high on Niblett as most seem to be. Love Cook, really like Hale, no problem with Wilson. Would've liked another guy with elite speed in addition to Cook. WR seems like a spot where there's gonna be interesting guys in the portal every year.
  16. Since we're being provocative and attacking each other this morning, here's how I'd grade out the class so far. This is based on current commits plus a reasonable assumptions about what's left on the board. Purposefully offered without much comment. QB = A+. RB = A if we land Baxter. WR = B assuming we land Hale. TE = C+. This would go to an A if we land Robinson. OL = C. DL = B+. EDGE = C+ even with Gullette. LB = C-. DB = A if we land Matthews.
  17. A&M's been quiet on him because he skipped their pool party to go to LSU. I think at the end of the day, he's a guy that they decide they HAVE to get, a la Hill.
  18. Not saying they’re right or wrong on Baxter, but I would argue that TFB’s Texas coverage has fallen off pretty significantly in the last couple cycles.
  19. Hopefully just someone in Baxter’s camp looking to create a little drama for the announcement. He’s been a silent to Texas for several weeks now.
