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 typically don't begrudge someone who misspells a name, but at least phonetically gets it correct. But someone come around and changes your name from Atticus to Itticus, yeah, I'll make a joke. I also take into account that the poster in question has a history of being a hammer dumb level of stupid.

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.

He was here a week ago? And if I’m going by common sense assumptions there is no reason for him to go to Aggy and a archaic offensive system with JAGS everywhere at QB. I fully understand common sense does not always prevail….

Has there been any intel on what caused the last minute switchup from Hale? As of yesterday everyone though UT including Fong. Then poof. Obviously the natural guess is that we didn't match Bama's offer but idk.

It was a "family" decision.

Very obvious that none of those Louisville commits were ever going to stick. That said, hard to see us winning them if we aren’t going to get in the mud for Hale 

In the mud, you say? Courtesy of @SydneyCarton's favorite rapper.

 

This was also one of the background songs to one of the greatest highlight videos of all time.

Same as it ever was. Alabama knew how much our NIL was worth. Then they upped the ante with cash. It is pretty easy to do when playing by gentlemen's rules.

Yup. I'm hopeful we change our tactics to include both moving forward once people around our program see and learn from other SEC programs when we move over. Both is the best recipe.

What doesn't make sense to me is the timing. If you believe the crystal balls, this thing turned on a dime like, yesterday. Seems like if Bama decides they HAVE to get Hale, that would have been in the works for a while. Is Saban in his office refreshing 247 waiting for Wiltfong's crystal ball before he pulls the trigger on bag action?

What the fuck makes you think we're going to "learn" moving forward and include NIL and Bags, when we've known exactly what bags are for the past 30 years of the modern era and refused to participate? We can barely even drag most alums to the NIL finish line. 

If this things get rolling with baseline and corporate and city of Austin, the rest of the SEC can sit around and do jack shit but polish their puds until the end of time.

Knowing how to setup the system? We seem to not know shit about fuck with regards to that, for one.

We know shit about fuck about it because none of the guys with money want any part of it. Period. Full stop. You've been bringing this shit up for years now, and with the advent of the NIL world, the hope of UT dropping bags on guys is further away than it was years ago, and years ago it was in some other alternate universe of likelihood. Just stop. 

Or let me put this another way: UT will start dropping bags when you personally have your net worth jump above 100 million and decide you can afford to send 2-3 million a year on Texas dropping bags. That's it.

FIFY. Im not saying Hale isnt a hit, but we were indifferent to the guy when we didn't think he was coming here. There were plenty of rumors about off the field issues, although I admit we haven't heard much about that in the last 6 months. Hale feels like a classic guy who boosts the class ranking, and looks good on paper, but probably doesn't actually add a fuck ton to the class considering his position, who we have committed, and the beauty of the transfer portal. I'm honestly surprised so many folks here are taking this one as hard as they seem to be...personally I'm still more butthurt about Shelby than I am about Hale, and I haven't thought about Shelby in weeks.

i agree about Shelby because we need more DEs/Edge difference makers.  Hale would have been a great addition to this class but the current WRs committed are terrific already.

I give a shit, because you literally don't read any other posts about the subject and fail to absorb any information. Fuck, you failed to absorb and address my last post, which you literally quoted. Texas isn't doing both. Texas is never doing both. The advent of the NIL pretty much guarantees Texas will never be dropping bags. 

Why do we fight with one hand behind our backs? I don't know, the guys with money have personal integrity and their own honor code? WHO THE FUCK CARES, IT IS NEVER HAPPENING. Unless, I repeat, you want to get it fucking started yourself. So why don't you stop fucking whining about it and get a second job at Dairy Queen so you can start accruing some wealth, ok?

IF IF IF

 

NIL + Bags > NIL

 

The holistic Texas it is!

 

It's actually insane we still don't have team wide NIL setup while Tech and SMU do....so yeah pardon me for not being the most optimistic about it right now especially considering RGBIII and others have said our alumni are fucking oblivious to what NIL is and still learning and some flat out refuse.

Texas isn't going to enter the (illegal) bag game. They didn't over the last decade, the worst in the program's history. They absolutely are not going to now that there is a legal option with NIL.

This isn't hard to understand. Wishing for it to happen is wasted brain power. Hoping it will happen is wasted hope. It isn't happening unless you personally set it up, fund it and keep the gravy going years into the future.

I'm not sure I said anything in my post that was an IF. 

I don't give a fuck if you like it, agree with it, etc. But for fucks sake, shut the fuck up about it ad nauseum because you might as well be asking us to start lighting the tower Crimson when we win fucking games. We'd all appreciate it if you could move onto the Acceptance stage of your Grief. That or get wealthy and fund bags. We'll take either, but either way just shut up, neckbeard.

I'm re-quoting your shitty post in light of this edit because...you think YOU are informing ME about our alumni and NIL. @RGBIII come look at this shit.

Also, I was literally the first person to post on this board that some alumni were flat out refusing on general principle. 

But thanks for the edit and additional information. You really helped ram down my point that TEXAS ALUMS ARE NEVER GOING TO FUND BAGS. Fuck.

Wells is teasing an article on Moore but it likely is a vague "thinks look good if Texas can get him to campus again" type bullshit

It just an article talking about the potential WRs that UT might go after after losing Hale: Deandre Moore, MHP, Kyle Parker, Jaden Greathouse, & Braylon James.

IT just dropped a video:

#OnTexasFootball #Longhorns #JalenHale #RecruitingBreakdown

On this edition of The Recruiting Breakdown, On Texas Football talks Jalen Hale choosing Alabama, where the Longhorns go from here and more!

Have you sent in your donation to HWH or made sure your friends/colleagues with means are aware that the opportunity exists?  I just got another alumn interested over lunch today.  There are a lot of people that aren't "BMD's" that can afford to donate $5K/$10K+, are interested in how do do it legally while also benefiting charitable organizations, and don't know opportunities exist to do so.
