So far, auburn has performed as well or better than dicker at fgs, and Trejo is hit and miss. Kickoffs though, but coverage has held up on those. 

i mean, you can say you think this but the kicking game would pretty much objectively better with Dicker a P/K than we are with Auburn, Pearson and Machete.

Has a few very nice plays against legit competition here. Also had an impressive TD reception against Allen a few weeks back. At Mater Dei will be an interesting test for him, might be worth tuning in if this recruitment heats up.

Makes me think of early 2000s College Gameday intros

 

 

"Pretenders" flashing up in front of Texas looked intentional. Ironically we were on track to make our first BCS bowl that year, against tOSU in the Fiesta. Then K-State shocked blOU in Arrowhead and we ended up in San Diego with an underwhelming loss to Wazzu. Blech.

FOH = fuck outta here (at least that's what Johntay meant)

 

I'm praying that Bama's offense continues to look like below for the foreseeable future.

I was offering some alternatives.  I have teenagers and have been versed in the acronyms of todays youth.  😁

This is EXACTLY what we need. There were 100k people in the stadium for a game against UTSA, if 1% of that number could give us 5k a year we would be funded in perpetuity 

Just donated.  Didn’t realize it was tax deductible.  Will likely donate more when sufficiently inebriated.

Since this is now the NIL thread, has anyone heard of anyone using that Leverage Lineup thing on Opendorse? Curious how that's working. Seems like a lot of potential there to monetize small businesses and fans if done correctly and publicized enough

Regarding the difference in outlook on CDC between RGBIII and I, a few things are at play. One is disposition. Two is asymmetry of information. Tubby Tom Herman has been on a beach somewhere all week. I don't know what he's hearing. I've had board prep and then a quaterly board meeting this week. I've checked out and he's checked out. No clue why he's optimistic regarding CDC behavior right now. From my end, my view remains that way more shit would be happening from the big money is CDC wasn't talking out of both sides of his mouth in terms of support.

I feel like either one, regularly. Mostly Rust Cohle this week. Fuck me. As to Sydney, he's Marty Hart. Or Ray Krebbs to my Bobby Ewing. Whatever.

So I saw a Facebook post last week in which a small school was celebrating one of their players signing an NIL deal that paid a charity for his stat accumulation. I don't remember the figure, but it was to the tune of $25 per tackle and $50 per sack or something along those lines. 

Isn't that illegal under the current rules?

So we gonna wait on Moore before we go after MHP or do we even want MHP anymore? I havent kept up recently

Justin Wells said today on the 2nd IT video that was put out today that UT might end up taking MHP as an ATH prospect, separate from whoever the 4th WR in this class might be.

Unlike Nahlin, Justin Wells sounded like he much preferred Kyle Parker over MHP as a WR prospect.

I believe Sydney said I have the mentality and disposition of a golden retriever....shockingly accurate

And the face of Tom Herman.

It’s allowed as long as they’re paying the charity for the player’s performance. The Texas law just says you can’t make a player’s pay contingent on performance, but it’s fine if the pay is to a third party.

Thanks. I appreciate the clarification

I prefer thicccc Tom Herman. And part of my optimism is that thing we are in a group text about, let’s see if it goes our way. I can definitely get your sense of talking out of both sides of his mouth though, we shall see

Depends on which Tom Herman we are looking at at the time. I wish I could pull off coke bender Herman, I think I’m closer to G2 and vodka Herman. I also never considered that aspect of paying the charities, that’s actually pretty ingenious…I need to look over that a bit more

Holy fuck. Tubby Tom Herman. That's not going anywhere. TTTIII has a solid handle ring to it. 

Also, I don't in any way agree with your assessment of me being Marty Hart, but I'll tell you what if it were true that position isn't without benefits.

I keep watching but the rest of this gif doesn’t seem to be loading. Servers must still be borked, I’ll keep watching.
