2022 Transfer Thread - It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

Exactly.  Our STARTING safety transferred to Sam Houston State.  Our third string safeties transferred to Tech and SMU.   Raise your hand when you see the problem.

Jett Bush played DE and even had his hand in the dirt as a DT on a couple of pass rushing downs.  Vernon Broughton played at times in crunch time situations.   Barron was our best cover guy and hardly played.  Brockermeyer started over Ford.

The best players didn’t play the majority of snaps last year at numerous positions.  Whether it was starting the wrong guys or having expansive rotations that regularly subbed in guys who should not see the field unless it’s garbage time, we frankly just wasted lots of downs with inadequate personnel that was self-inflicted.  And we weren’t starting from a great roster situation, anyway, so self-inflicted wounds were especially unhelpful.

Lol the you’re stupid post, gotta love the classics. You stooping down to let me know how much smarter you are than me is pretty sweet. I’m sure over the 20 years you’ve frequented these boards there have been plenty of these interactions. That’s not sad at all, your commitment to letting people know things is admirable. Somebody has to do it tho, right. 

Use words like insipid and call his mother the goblin shark of the human race to distract him while you fight.

Cooks to TCU. Owens to Tech.

Honestly Adimora and that fucking spare Abiara aren't dropping far and Symons is a rising star as a DC. I don't know if the off-the-field stuff will be too much to overcome but Jordon Thomas can play at the p5 level as well. It's telling to me that the guys that did drop down were the guys this staff played. Foster who ended up at SHSU and Warren at Texas State. Guys like Cooks, Owens, Adimora didn't see the field. 

 

Wonder what Cooks issue was. Blackwell played. Cooks quit very early. That was disappointing. I’ll be pissed if Owens takes to LB at another school.

He's dropped more weight so I think that ship has sailed - he's playing both FS and SS (I think he's gonna be first of the bench at both spots) - played both in the spring game for them.

I think the only reason cooks came here was because of Hutzler. Maybe checked out once he didn’t come back? But I don’t know why he would wait so long to leave

He loved Hutzler. I think it truly was as simple as that. He's pretty solidly second team for them rn and has played some with the 1s as well.

Not sure he has the COD for the secondary. Straight line fast, but we shall see

The issue is bigger than that. If your are designing a defense for a team, you start out identifying the strengths and weaknesses. Then you use the strengths to mask the weaknesses. You can cover up issues in the secondary with excellent front 7 play. You can cover up issue in the front 7 with excellent secondary play. What you can’t do is cover both up. That was the issue with the 2021 defense. They literally had a weakness at every level of the defense with  0 elite players

Yep. This is pretty much spot on. The linebacker corps was shit and the secondary and DLine were subpar. We’ve now gotten a transfer for Secondary and LB. The only level we failed to improve was DL. We should be fine on interior but failure to get an edge will hurt.

Cooks was running with the 1s at TCU because they had a couple injuries. 

He's definitely a backup there and apparently struggled at times. Arguing that this coaching staff "wasn't playing the better players" because of a 2nd stringer at TCU is some funny stuff.

A 2nd string linebacker on a 5-7 team that finished 116th in FEI defense is now proof the Texas coaching staff wasn't playing the best players. 

Hilarious and stupid as fuck. 

yeah but what if they were the best players?  uh oh…

I'm just tired of these "innovative" defensive coordinators coming to Texas only to get completely exposed. PK did well against most Pac-12 offenses, but I will continue to lump him into the Diaz and Orlando category until he proves me wrong. At this point I'd rather commit to vanilla DC that can make us average to above average with good athletes rather than keep rolling the dice with the previously mentioned "innovators".

What thread do I go to if I want to discuss 2022 transfers?

That would be the “Hey PK - What would you say you do here?” thread on the Football Forum. It’s apparently Saturnalia Weekend around these parts.

No judgement.... just wondering

He is kowtax. We pay him 10bux TREE FIDDY and then he keeps us in line. Without him there'd be a bunch of scat or worse, people being even more dumb than normal.

Boyd is apparently calling Agiye Hall a possession receiver on IT this morning, which is fun.

Yeah one of Ian's most interesting takes. I think he's trying to make him into Lil'Jordan 2.0. I don't  think Hall has played enough football yet to go there.

It is not a skill set that Sark used at Bama, which makes it even more interesting. Based on that and his portal selections, he is looking for guys that can make every catch a potential TD, not chain movers

Bijan will be a chain mover.

"Spirit" lifted.  Who is this?

I'd like to know. Someone (thank you) brought reddit's r/pokies to my attention and I found her pic there. My new favorite distraction

what’s the latest on potential transfers?

Can't recall their names, but these two keep on popping up on several threads.

Twin brothers Tommy, James Brockermeyer commit to Alabama | Fort Worth  Star-Telegram

They apparently have a brother on the team.

Ian Boy probably still thinks ROJO should be a LB

Well, in fairness, it ROJO had moved to LB, we may not have taken on our most recent transfer. 🤷‍♂️

My daughters (no pics) and all their friends love to wear their Seaside shirts. Not sure I’ve ever seen a guy wear one. 

Fuck the Brocks
