Ewers or Bust- Lord have mercy I’m bout to bust

Quarterback

Quinn Ewers, Southlake (Texas) Carroll

The Ohio State transfer may be a reach to put in with the high school prospects, but I’m returning him to his 2022 class. Texas Tech and TCU have had Ewers on around camp since Sunday. Ewers met with Steve Sarkisian Friday night. Texas would love for Ewers to get on campus before making a decision. I do not believe NIL is a driving force here. This is all about best avenue to the field immediately, and that’s where trust and a plan comes into play. TCU taking a commit from Josh Hoover minutes after meeting with Ewers isn’t how to win on trust. If Ewers genuinely wants to have a positive effect on a recruiting class with under a week until signing day, Texas will be his choice.

If QE is calling the shots for Maguire on who to hire for his first time HC job, he must be drinking again.

Eh, it wouldn't be the first time a high profile recruit (I'm calling him a recruit still) tried to get a coach hired at an entry position (we don't for sure know which position though QB is rumored). Especially at a university who is out-kicking their coverage on even being in it with said recruit. That, and being the OC at SLC isn't exactly a reach on being able to coach.

Yeah everyone knows Riley is coming to join the staff at Texas in some capacity so the grandkids can be around Todd!

The thought that Riley has some mentor/close relationship with QE is suspect.  QE basically pulled the rug out from what was suppose to be a SLC revenge tour back to the State finals with his late departure to Ohio State.  Fortunately the unknown and little experienced backup turned out pretty good,  but locals don't think Riley was too thrilled.

The longer this drags on, the more we must consider Quinn's motives. If it were truly about securing the NIL side and getting high profile recruits to follow, it would seem in his best interest to lock this down pretty quick. If he hasn't picked a school and announced soon, then it points to a player that is only looking out for himself. If Quinn wants a strong supporting cast, as some have claimed, then the decision should be an easy one.

Unless he is gaging other recruits on flipping to follow him where he goes. That may take some time. I doubt it's happening but there has been some signs of that.

This has "dragged on" for 3 days and counting?

Speaking of: isn't that an NCAA violation now? Or since Ewers is a year out and transferring, is it okay?

Its fine if the coach is hired in an on-field capacity.  The rule was put in place to keep HC from hiring high school coaches into 'analyst' roles in exchange for bringing them top recruits.

Not the first time it has happened, but hiring your initial (not just initial, first ever) staff's QB coach (a very important position) to entice a long-shot transfer QB is a weird move.  Your first staff makes or breaks you. 

This isn't hiring a Traylor/Maguire HS football coach to coach TEs or WRs or STs - the QB position is arguably one of the most important coaching and recruiting positions in the Big 12.

One example off the top of my head is Mitch Mustain.  He went to Arkansas after Houston Nutt hired his high school coach, Guz Malzahn, as the OC.  Both ended up leaving Arkansas after a year.

I think this is spot on.  

I've heard that Riley didn't know about the Ohio State move until after the fact.

He could just be a very indecisive and stressed out kid. I know I fucking was at that age.   
 

thank god my dumb decisions didn’t come under the college football fandom’s microscope.  Shit, I wanted to go to Tulane over UT. Thankfully my dad refused to pay 60k or whatever Tulane cost a semester.

I am told Texas continues to recruit former Southlake QB Quinn Ewers with a passion.

Steve Sarkisian making a bee-line to Ewers the minute he entered the portal is just one example.

The Texas staff at large is making sure every I is dotted and every T crossed in this recruitment.

It doesn’t mean Ewers will ultimately sign with the Horns, but it will not be from a lack of trying from the Texas staff. The Horns want Quinn Ewers.

Since we don't have shit to go on, I'm choosing to believe that the choice of  "I is dotted and every T crossed in this recruitment" is an indication that we have made a substantial offer to him and are waiting on a response.

I talked to someone at SLC yesterday and I don't think the staff is upset with QE but a lot of parents are.  At the last playoff game QE was at the game and I was told the staff was okay with it.  Many parents saw it as a distraction.

FYI if anyone posts anything negative in regards to Quinn you will be getting neg bombed to oblivion. The kids camp is legit worried that he is unwanted and will be shit all over when something bad happens. This could be the best thing thats happened for Texas since at least 2009, do not shit all over it

He is most definitely wanted.

Imagine being the QB that led Texas out of the wilderness after a dozen years of futility. I mean, just imagine being that guy, and set for life.

Nobody knows shit, because only Ewers and his dad know where he's going or what he's thinking, and they aren't telling the $9.95ers (or probably won't even answer their calls).

If he actually calls a school and tells them he's coming, there might be a few leaks that come from the school. 

If he actually calls up other recruits and says " Hey, I'm thinking about choosing Texas, would you come play with me?" , then it's possible the players he calls could leak it, but not likely yet. 

Otherwise, there are no sources to get info from, so everyone is just speculating on what every little sign means, and trying to ascribe their own meaning to shit. 

One of the 9.95ers slipped up yesterday on youtube (forgot which one, either Suchomel or Nahlin) and said that he was texting with the dad for info, but when asked about anything Texas they were radio silent. I believe that the longer this goes the better it is for Texas. We haven't heard a word about how any of the Texas conversations have gone or even that visits are taking place even though Sarkisian is pressing hard, but we are hearing all about how amazing Tech is etc. It is calculated, and I believe they are giving Texas time to line things up for Ewers. If it were Tech he would have committed already, there really isn't anything left to see. My completely baseless prediction is that we hear tomorrow.

It's fucking absurd that this has to be stated. In fact, it ought to be extended to all recruits considering Texas as we approach signing day. The shit-talking of Banks' dad based on a tweet by Banks' trainer yesterday was strange. Let this shit play out and be positive.

Unwanted at Texas?

Quinn, if you’re watching we blame everything on cdc so no worries.

Also, the whole family including the dog will have a mullet if you come.

My point isn't Tech doing it to be enticed, but doing it in return. It wouldn't be a longshot, it'd be a done deal. Now I'm not saying that's what's going on or anything. I don't know the kid. The coaches. Hell, I just know I'd wanna do it for an old ball coach if I could, and we've seen it done before. That's all.

Agree, if it was Tech it would be a commit now since it seems Tech had more of a jump on this due to Mahomes back channeling.

We should make sure they see the clips of Oklahoma fans chanting "We want Caleb" in Norman, just in case he is considering OU.

Has Ewers' camp seen @Beau Vine's comment about Ewers shitting bigger than Arch blowing up on Twitter?

Also, are there any other sites out there that have an 80 page thread filled with fans salivating over Ewers?

Him whipping the ball with ease is all I needed to see.  The sooner he comes the better and if some badass linemen will follow that would be great too.  This team needs playmakers.  If we had that we’d have probably been able to finish 8-4 or better.  Hell, someone who can consistently complete a forward pass would’ve put several of our games away by the end of the 3rd quarter.

Legitimately sign this petition and share it to every single person you know. This means more than you think, if you want to do something real and substantial sign this and pass it around. It will get in front of the Ewers camp

 

When I click the link I get a warning about a potentially unsafe site.  What is it?

I'm sure he got backlash when he flipped to OSU.  I get it.  He probably feels a lot of pressure to be the savior if he comes to UT.  Truth is, a lot of expectations will be on his shoulders.  But honestly, if for whatever reason he doesn't lead us to an immediate revival, we are still no worse off than we are today.  There literally is no where to go but up.  At the very least, he gives us hope and can hopefully bring some other recruits with him.  And taking on this challenge and pressure has to be beneficial to his football career moving forward I'd think.  It's not like the NFL fans won't put expectations on him, so this is preparing him for the next level.

I find this hard to believe. Herman was literally fired for botching Ewers and Brocks recruitments, among other dumbassery.

Are there going to be high expectations? Hell yes, same as Ohio State. Are there going to be overreactive mouth breathers who yell and throw fits in the stands? Hell yes, same as Ohio State without the flaming furniture. It is the same in the NFL except our fans aren't having sex in the parking lot on top of parked cars. Quite frankly, if he is serious about going to the NFL, then a place like Texas is the perfect environment to learn to handle these kinds of pressures without $50 million being on the line if he has a misstep. Sarkisian's message about "This is the arena you chose" is important. The fact that he is "wanted" or "not wanted" shouldn't matter at all. He needs to come in and just put his head down and work on getting better. If he does that and shows improvement, nobody will be able to say anything except something stupid like he didn't win 4 national titles so he is a bust.

What does Colorado have to do with this discussion? But, yes, you're right Colorado kicks the shit out of Lubbock too. Many places do. Which is kind of the point.

There are dumbass fans everywhere. If he came back to Texas given the tough year we just had it would be the biggest positive event since Chris Simms, which completely changed the trajectory of the program, as an earlier poster wrote. Knowledgeable fans would understand that and he would potentially go down in history as a Texas legend with any sort of on field success.

And if he helps get it finally turned around he would have a city and state that would love him forever and he’d never buy a beer in a bar again, like Vince Young. I’d say that’s a pretty cool goal to shoot for.
