  1. I'm not one of the OU guys but - this group is coached by Jay Valai and Brandon Hall. To me if you look and the 2-deep and their position coaches this group has the most obvious problems. Two coaches who aren't technique guys or even in their best position group (Hall is better with LBs). Sure, getting Fields out by grad transfer and Broiles out by moving Lawrence to S seems like two possible upgrades but I don't know that this staff will be the one to develop Lawrence.
  2. A season is 3 games played per year in the NFL. Malik has eclipsed the 3 years necessary to make the NFL pension program (and the tuition reimbursement program) and with one more season of at least 3 appearances he'll be qualified for the Player Annuity Program as well. There are other programs that he may be a part of that also increase your retirement portfoliol. It's not set-for-life or fuck you money, but the guy has made enough money and has enough retirement padding to live well in his retired years with an even average income going forward, so anything he makes from now to 55+ is just adding to that QOL. (** assuming he hasn't amassed a mountain of idiotic debt as many guys do)
  3. Not that it will matter in this game because WKU will be way too much for them but Austin Peay's HC is wunderkind Scotty Walden and Walden is a name people should get familiar with if you like to track up-and-comers. When he got the Peay job Walden grabbed Josh Cochran from Mack's UNC support staff and after a weird covid season where Peay played half their schedule in the spring - he was elevated to OC last season. Cochran has since joined McGuire's Tech staff as well under shit-hot Kittley and is proving to be a damn good recruiter and is also a name to keep track of.
  4. Oh boy… sure to be a circus. https://247sports.com/Player/Tory-Blaylock-46117015/
  5. Preexisting familial friends hanging out at the beach isn’t a crime and the number of Manning family friends that are involved in coaching, as agents, as “boosters”, have kids actively playing on one team or another, etc is going to be everyone they know. this is much ado about nothing.
  6. Cooks was a separate discussion and not germane to the coaching staff not playing the best players. Go back to the kid's table if you can't keep up with adult conversation. Foster being a starter and going to SHSU while the 3rd and 4th string guys behind him that played 0 snaps ended up at Tech and SMU respectively was one conversation. Cooks never even trying to play at Texas because he liked Hutzler was another. Stupid as fuck indeed, not hilarious though.
  7. He loved Hutzler. I think it truly was as simple as that. He's pretty solidly second team for them rn and has played some with the 1s as well.
  8. He's dropped more weight so I think that ship has sailed - he's playing both FS and SS (I think he's gonna be first of the bench at both spots) - played both in the spring game for them.
  9. Cooks to TCU. Owens to Tech. Honestly Adimora and that fucking spare Abiara aren't dropping far and Symons is a rising star as a DC. I don't know if the off-the-field stuff will be too much to overcome but Jordon Thomas can play at the p5 level as well. It's telling to me that the guys that did drop down were the guys this staff played. Foster who ended up at SHSU and Warren at Texas State. Guys like Cooks, Owens, Adimora didn't see the field.
  10. I said I wanted Choate fired, not murdered. I guess I'm getting soft in my old age.
  11. Ideally, I'd have liked the coach that was responsible for keeping Jaylan Ford on the sideline while playing Brockermeyer to be shown the fucking door before the team had finished showering post KState, instead of giving him a fucking contract extension. I'm all for competition and bringing Tucker-Dorsey on board is a good move but if the position coach continues to be employed I'd temper my enthusiasm on the best players getting to play, because they didn't last season. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  12. They aren't really doing more in Texas than he was doing at Oregon - they have 35 offers out in Texas for 2023. At Oregon they made 36 in 2022, 29 in 2021, 38 in 2019, and 33 in 2018. By comparison Oregon offered only 17 on 2017, pre-Cristobal and there's no reason to think he won't close on several. They do carpet bomb under Cristobal (over 300 offers out so far and over 100 in Florida) so not all offers are the same but he's got some damn good recruiters on staff and they are going to continue being a constant presence in Texas.
