  1. Is there’s a single aggy commit we actually pursued and pushed to commit? Maybe Coby Sellers? I’m not sure if he was even at the top of our board at CB.
  2. Wingo is the biggest mismatch in the WR room. The minute the coaches feel he has the playbook and schemes down, he’ll be starting. I’m excited to see what Sark draws up for Bolden. Dude was abusing Utah in that film.
  3. It they want a ton of NIL money and a guaranteed starting spot, then I would say yes.
  4. I think of how Jonathan Brooks was beat out by a freshman. Dude didn't complain and was an ultimate teammate after waiting behind Bijan and RoJo. Baxter gets hurt and Brooks becomes a Doak Walker finalist and ends up being the first RB drafted. Compare that to a player that is rumored to have demanded a lot NIL while also losing his starting spot and having an issue with it. Just makes me appreciate guys that are bought in about the process and want to be the best version for the team versus entitled players that are more money and their own success.
  5. They’ve stated before he wants a quicker path to playing time and he’s unlikely to see snaps too many snaps his first year or two behind Baxter, Wisner, Gibson, Clark. I imagine that had more to do with it.
  6. No one is moving goalposts and I didn’t imply anything other than the fact that we have a clear need at DT and that we walked away with 2 guys that look like depth players and struck out on 3 other guys that we seriously pursued in Alexander, Toila, and Williams. Nothing wrong with what I said. But yeah, you didn’t respond with your usual passive aggressive bullshit like you always do. This is also an open forum to discuss Longhorn recruiting and news. Feel free to chime in but I don't see any posters here asking you to educate us or help us understand NiL so stop policing this board as if we’re here for your hot takes.
  7. Nasir Wyatt just committed to Oregon. I wonder if that is the player Gerry was alluding to.
  8. According to Gerry, he thinks he’s a 2nd- 3rd found type of guy. I’ve seen enough of Broughton to know that he’s nothing more than a rotational guy that still doesn’t have the strength or lower body to hold up on the interior after 4 years in college. I don’t expect Williams to be a Murphy/Sweat type of difference maker but a lot of coaches went after him hard. Either way, doesn’t matter because Devon Campbell is going to pancake him come October.
  9. Bro, you need to chill out. Where did I say that other teams don’t have holes in the roster? Where did I say that Texas isn’t going to make a run? You’re making a lot of assumptions. I was making the observation that we fell short of getting a difference maker at DT, after months of Bobby and Gerry both hinting that Texas would be prepared and you’ve had a history of posts also implying Texas has a “war chest” as well. Bobby just said, they came in and asked for more money and Texas didn’t budge and ou may have. If that is true, how is that not losing a player due to money? It’s the fucking definition of losing a guy to money. I get some players are not a fit for Texas or Texas doesn’t think spending the bucks is worth it… whichever way you want to paint it, our additions were very “meh”. Quit acting like a little bitch and having a temper tantrum on here. Sorry my post and others rile you up so much. Maybe take a day off the boards, you sound more pissed about Williams not ending up at Texas than anything I wrote. Geez, this board has fucking gone downhill with the stupid cheese posts and ctj and select others having their little bitchfest anytime someone makes an observation about our NIL or criticizes it.
  10. I think Texas clearly has a strategy and has success in the portal and how they distribute NIL. With that said, this year is a year where we are 1-2 players away from making a run for a title. I would think it would be the time to over spend to make the run if that’s is what’s needed but it’s not my money they are giving away. After all the talk about having a war chest and the snippets about waiting for big names to enter and that Texas wouldn’t be beat out… seems we were beat out on all the big name DTs and all of it came down to money. Market value is what the market sets and clearly other schools are spending more setting the price for players like Toila, Williams, Nolen, Alexander, etc. Perhaps the coaches feel good about developing the young guys, but I hope we don’t look back in a few months and regret not spending dollars on a good NT which is a clear weakness on an otherwise stout roster.
  11. intel from Williams and ou meeting this morning...
  12. So he wants to go to ou and is using Texas to drive his price up with ou it seems like? Good for Texas for not budging. At best he ends up at Texas at a price Texas is comfortable at. At worst, ou over extends themselves and has less NIL for recruits and other transfers. It's pretty obvious this has been ou from the start as they were the ones to get him into the portal and it's his last visit the day of his commitment. Hopefully that's not the case.
  13. I've got a 20 month old son. I can't imagine being such a piece of shit to do something like that to my child. This guy deserves to be in prison for the rest of his life and I hope the people in prison remind him with daily beatings what a shitty human he is.
  14. That LSU office looks like it's 25 years old.
  15. 10 draft picks! Let’s goooo!
