  1. I'm in Oslo rn and I need Baker to move up his commitment for before I sleep
  2. You don’t want a no tell offense though. The whole point of an offensive game plan is to exploit defensive tendencies and part of that is showing plays that set up the big play because they were overreacting to the ones before it that lead them to either being trapped without the personnel to handle what you want to do or reading the wrong information from your alignment
  3. How many of those times were players being coached to do the right things, running into the right position to do things as they were coached and then dropping the easy catch though? Some of it was bad adjustment but most of the time I felt like he got it right even last year when we blew leads
  4. From the story of his heart issues to him recovering from alcoholism to everything else he has gone through and how he leads the team, Sark is someone I am truly proud to have lead the Texas Longhorns.
  5. Hold up, I understand why the guy hates Texas and Miami and what not, but why the fuck did he decide to run in with transphobia as though it was clever. Classic bigoted aggy.
  6. I feel like this has been said a thousand times. What a recruit says when they mean education and what we think of when we think of education are two very different things. Their focus is on academic support staff and ability to get pushed through the program and wind up with a degree. As much as UT will provide support, UT CS isn’t something you get pushed through or even into all too easily (though I’m sure for a 5* athlete they could look the other way on a couple hundred SAT points). The level of rigor compared to an A&M or LSU or OSU type CS program is night and day. There’s a reason you don’t see the athletes mentioning education go in droves to Georgia Tech and wind up at schools like LSU or A&M. Neither are terrible schools by any means but they’re not what anyone would call great institutions of higher learning outside of their respective states.
  7. It’s nothing like college station Wtf. It was way prettier before Mt Davis but still a great stadium for what it is. Easy ingress/egress thanks to BART, short lines even when we were averaging 25k attendance a game. Reasonably priced seats before COVID (not worth to see the garbage now more than once a season)
  8. Are you friends with people born in 1950? Who the fuck was an adult in 1968 that you hang out with on the reg
  9. That's because there's a typo. Replace part with par so the sentence reads "[The] only government on par with SEC type corruption relative to the rules binding them is in Albany." In other words, when you compare the level at which they violate the law relative to the legal burdens placed on them, the SEC looks worse than any government besides Albany. But also why the fuck are you bumping a comment that will be celebrating its second birthday in a week you dweeb?
  10. Message board posters know very little about football and even less about o-line play. That’s why we post here instead of coaching
  11. Longhorn picks off Sooner on national television. You love to see it
  12. The roster has probably no value and any value that it does have probably appreciated the message. Most of the talent there deep down recognizes that they are carrying the weight for free-riders who can’t play. The idea of Deion fixing that with fairy dust is alluring and probably will convince them to stay. Outside of the QB room which Deion probably fucked
  13. Love seeing Cam Rising and JQJ killing it. Proud of my predictions for Rising's success on the old forums. My rankings for that class were Justin Fields-Trevor Lawrence-Tanner McKee-JT Daniels-Cam Rising iirc.
  14. We kinda had to throw given that our median ypc felt like 1.5 for large parts of the game. We needed to keep them honest but couldn't take the top off of them and make the safeties stay back or make short range passes to put receivers in space that would allow them to house it if they beat their man due to safety cheating. whether it was Sark's play calls or Quinn Ewers not liking what he saw on potential short range passes, I can't say. There were chances to make those passes, whether they were intentionally viewed as later reads in his progression because of Sark or was just a misread by Ewers is something we just don't know.
  15. Yeah but he was and a true 1.000 at that for a reason. To quote Jim Harbaugh, if a worm had lasers, birds would be afraid of them. On a serious note, Quinn has showed flashes of brilliance, seems to have trouble with one particular type of defense (3-3-5 flyover/drop 8s) and has excelled at times and has shown rare decisiveness and the ability to thread the intermediate throw in tight windows few other QBs have shown the willingness or ability to do. I think that given an offseason with Sark (are we seriously trying to pretend the man who has probably the best active resume for QB development or at the very least top 5, has somehow lucked into all of them?) that a lot of these issues can and will be fixed. If the man couldn't handle any defenses, got abused whether in man or zone, whether it was an all-out blitz or drop 8, and didn't show the flashes he did, I could understand giving him the Card treatment. But that simply isn't the case.
