Traditionally it took a year before you could be back & play after an ACL tear. But it took 2 years to regain your full athleticism from before the ACL tear.

Based on the Spring football & Fall camp reports, Omiere & Alexis seem to be on this timeline. They can physically practice & play, but they haven’t fully recovered from their ACL tears. I don’t see why Neyor won’t go through the same thing.

Don't forget that Omiere tore his ACL and MCL, I believe, so that set him back 2 years. He's just now able to participate, and by next season will be full on Omerie bad assery

Not sure why we’re on this in the 2023 recruiting thread, but I’m less certain than any of you guys that Neyor is at Texas next year. 

For 2023 WR depth purposes, Texas needs to:

-sign 4 guys, if not a 5th in MHP.

-retain Worthy, and that is going to be 7 figures from the NIL machine.

-get Hall to a spot where he’s reliable and vaguely maturing. 

-get Thompson thinking he’s going to contribute this year and be a big part of next year.

-cross your fingers on Neyor.

-retain Cain, Red, and anyone else they think is a player.

-find an impact transfer if you can, and will probably need $250k-$1M depending upon who it is. 

Neyor will be back. You also said Blue would never step on campus, so pardon me if I find your takes to be stupid.

For MHP. Don’t know if he’s actually hearing something or if this is just in response to Hale news

would rather have Hale then MHP. I just don’t see it in him but hey we’ll see 

If it’s one position I’m not gonna worry about it’s Quarterback 

 

oh and Receiver lol

Yeah, MHP doesn’t get me excited as a straight-up WR prospect (But I’m fine with him as an ATH prospect). I don’t know why Nahlin likes him so much when they are Better WR prospects to go after.

I hope that question is hopefully being answered with another question  from a recent real world example.  Which is more likely to result in Nebraska having a winning football team again soon.  Paying an additional $7.5MM buyout to be the first to fire their coach (first in line for next hiring cycle!!).  Or waiting 3 weeks and pocketing the $7.5MM (whatever dumbass booster funded it) and deploying that towards NIL.  People set in these old school ways of thinking about how to win at college football are clueless.

  

This reminded me. I work with a guy who is closely related to a recent aggy head coach of a mens team ( thats suitably vague).

He told me his relative had said aggy boosters were actually talking about trying to raise jimbos buyout. 

90 plus mil?  I laughed

Most playground bullies I ran into did exactly as you described without resorting to fists. They shouted, belittled, and tried to berate using profanity their targets into submission. Fists meant they could get hurt, which they avoided.

I do thank you and CTJ for your work towards making this happen organically, especially for the O-line and keeping Worthy around last year. I read what CTJ says and take in the info, but we’re allowed to disagree with parts of it, hence my WR room assessment disagreement.

However, your Liucci reference is most apropos in that you’re trying to treat this as your little fiefdom.

I picked up my burnt ends today FWIW.

Carry on.

go back to the football board, it becomes clear with every post you make that side of the house is more your speed.

also, thank you for actually paying for burnt ends.

Who would be throwing passes to Hale next year from Bama?  That’s right….nobody knows.

i don't think there should be much of a worry about the Alabama QB room in general.

now, being worried about what kind of hilarious scheme BOB runs without a Heisman winner? absolutely.

No 5-stars at all in the QB room after Bryce? Seems ominous. Prolly ought to just shut down the whole program.

Isn’t Jalen Milton there?? 
Looking at their spring game and going to a few of his Highschool games I wouldn’t sleep on him

let's wait a little while before waiving the Jaydon Blue victory flag.

actually signing with Texas was a win. actually making it on campus was a win. actually getting on the field was a win. now, let's see if he makes it through the summer into next year.

flakes are going to flake. his recruitment was basically one huge Texas sized red flag.

Milroe finished in the 80s in composite.

Ty Simpson finished as a composite 5* in 2021 though!

I'd be pretty stunned if Omiere ever meaningfully contributes here. In fact, I think it's much more likely that he's in the portal after this season. Sucks, but shit happens.

His name is Jalen Milroe, dipshit. It shouldn't be that hard, he was committed to us for quite awhile before Tom Herman went full Tom Herman. You can still thank him and our Aerospace Engineering program for Hayden Connor.

Oh well guess this might be like another Kelvin Banks recruitment! Soon as Big Bill leaves or is fired Hale will come back to us. 

So you think Bill O'Brien is what is luring Hale to Alabama? Is that who you even mean by "Big Bill?"

Listen, there was a while where it seemed like you were posting a lot less and not infecting this board with your terrible, no good, very bad takes. I for one would love for us to return to that relative Pax Romana as quickly as possible. Perhaps your appian way can lead you right back to the fucking football board.

Either our 9.95ers are terrible at their job or our coaches suck at learning from past experiences, because this story of kids being heavy Texas leans until decision day is getting old.

Recruits having last minute changes of heart to notoriously baggy schools is a tale as old as time.

Micah Hudson is a better version of Jalen Hale. Get him and this doesn’t matter. That being said… would have like to land Hale. Just irks me how obviously fishy this shit is. 

Hudson is 2024 though, hasn't visited Texas once but has visited A&M 2x on UOVs and camped there and is out there doing interviews with TexAgs.

Likely because they could move him to safety after a year on campus when it's apparent he will never see the field at WR.

Hudson visited for the Bama game, Wells had a write up posted in the 2024 thread that mentions we've made up a ton of ground on him.

Why is it fishy for him to go to a school that has been heavily prioritizing him for a long time, he’s visited multiple times, and has a strong track record of sending dudes to the league?

He was trending Bama/UGA/A&M before Marion got involved and the Arch momentum came around. Then, he was heavily trending to us after his summer visit. Time passed and Bama/A&M got him on campus TWICE in that 2-3 month period. We only got him back for his OV for the Bama game. 
Maybe we keep recruiting him and a good season along with some good offers can sway him, but we’ll be fine at receiver either way. 
 

If he fills out, he looks like he could be the next Deandre Hopkins though. Good get for Bama

Bama is just dropping bags on Hale because they're desperate for a head to head recruiting victory against the mighty Texum fighten Longhorns because they're scared of our momentum! They don't want the sleeping giant that is the Fighten Longhorns to wake up! Saban is just scared that sark is building a juggernaut here in A-town! Hook 'em!......

Did I do aggy right?

You called out that other guy for misspelling Jalen Milroe (could have been an autocorrect, really). You said he should know since he was committed here for a time.

At the same time, you referred to “Hayden Connor”, while his last name is actually spelled Conner*. I said you should know that since he’s actually on our team. 
 

Finally, I intentionally misspelled irony to highlight the silliness of the whole thing. 

I dont think I understood anything in this post.
