Older fraternity brother of mine passed his "Clergy" prop to me when he graduated.  Had the black shirt and collar on my front seat for a couple years as a prop.  The Clergy tent-card label stayed on my front dashboard, parked anywhere i wanted for a couple years. No tickets.

So, the only logical takeaway from this is that God is telling us that Tent Card should be QB1.

have as limited an understanding of OL roster management as @JFKFC

Jesus Tapdancing Christ. Some of you are impervious to facts. You are the Sarah Palin of this board.

I've wanted Sark to be active in the transfer portal for offensive linemen the past 2 off-seasons. He wasn't. Baylor got 2 o-linemen last offseason and they won the Big 12. Those 2 guys are still starters and On3 has them ranked as the 3rd best o-line going in to this season. Sark's freshmen o-line recruiting has exceeded all expectations but I am concerned that we could have a 5/6/7 win season this year when it could have been much better.

Humidor:

 

By: Eric and Justin

After the defense fared better on Tuesday, during the first full pad practice, the offense exacted revenge on Thursday as they went full pads again. What stood about the offense on Thursday was the run game. Running backs were getting the edge when going off tackle and getting downhill. Tackling could have been cleaner too, from what we hear. Yes, the blocking was improved but there were also some blown assignments as well. This is setting up for an interesting scrimmage on Saturday. The team is going half pads today.

When doing some Q&A with sources we uncovered some interesting notes.

Kelvin Banks was the very first offensive lineman mentioned. News of his early prowess is making the rounds. We're hearing it rather consistently from myriad sources. His ability is even making the rounds in the hallways of Isidore Newman high school. He is still with second team but he has a chance to be the best O-lineman in the program by the end of the year.

The second offensive lineman mentioned was Hayden Conner. He's smart, reliable, big, and he can move relative to guard.

Cole Hutson was also mentioned. He was with the ones at right guard. IT asked if he's similar to Conner and was told he is very similar to Conner.

With the defense struggling on Thursday we asked how much better, if at all, will they be than last year? We were told there is less confusion, the guys are playing faster, and that effort level is much better across the board. "Higher effort" players singled out were Vernon Broughton, Byron Murphy, Demarvion Overshown, Anthony Cook, and Jerrin Thompson.

Murphy is being called the best interior defensive lineman through cap so far. That's not to say he's the most talented overall, but he's consistent and he is very difficult to keep blocked. Encouragingly, T'Vondre Sweat was mentioned as having a strong week up front. The program needs Sweat and Alfred Collins to play up to their potential. 

With the offense experiencing success running outside we asked who was manning the edges. For much of the day it was Ovie Oghoufo on one side and Prince Dorbah on the other. We haven't heard much about Dorbah so it was interesting he was with the ones so much. Clearly the staff was repping the 2-4-5 look.

Freshman Derrick Brown is at SAM. This is instructive because whatever they do with him, and Overshown, they'll probably do with Derion Gullette. Brown will move to Buck in time -- some guys can play both Buck and Sam -- but that'll come after he gains weight. 

I can feel y'all scrolling for QB and Agiye Hall info. 

A source felt Hudson Card had the better week so far, but it's close. The source mentioned his increased confidence and command. "He's barking out calls now. He's just more confident." Quinn Ewers doesn't have the command of the offense, yet finding Isaiah Neyor down the field is becoming second nature to him. 

IT would not rule out a starter being named next week so the coaches can add more focus to that player. We're not reporting it will happen, but we'll be watching out for it. The scrimmage looms big.

We don't have anything new on Agiye Hall. There will likely be a time and place where we feel better about adding a little color. We think the school will have a statement out later.

I know it's pretty worthless 9.95er dribble so flame away but I'm not loving the reports we're getting on Ewers. Sounds like he's not picking up the offense as quickly as you'd hope.

Honestly I take anything regarding QB play from IT with a grain of salt.


Two off-seasons in a row glowing reports of Card, add in their NIL deal as soon as he was named starter last year, and then we see him completely shit the best vs real competition.

Goodness gracious. Here we go with the QB controversy. Simms speaks too quickly and over uses adverbs. Applewhite used too many double negatives, but had a good latina tongue and rolled his rr's.   I just want to know if our guys are ending their sentences with prepositions and using ain't and yall properly.

Card sucked shit through a straw last year, in every single way imaginable.  Any idea that he's miraculously become a serviceable D-1 QB due simply to "a full year in the system and maturing" is laughable.  If he sees any meaningful snaps, we're more fucked than we already are in several ways.

yep.  every first team rep card takes is a wasted rep.

This is something up with which I will not put. 

Reminds me of that cute little Texas Tech girl who was being totally ignored by a nice looking guy. So, to break the ice, she said, "Uh, where do y'all go to school at?" The guy replies, "Madam, I attend Harvard and the first thing they teach us there is to never end a sentence with a preposition." Chastened, she said, "Oh . . . Let me try that again: Where do y'all go to school at, ASSHOLE!"

Not trying to defend Herman, but pretty much everyone wanted Card. Ryan Day was all over him at Ohio State and he was #1 on their board. Of course they ended up lucking into CJ Stroud anyway because that's the type of luck that program has had lately.

lately?

going back to 1910, the last coach they had with a winning percentage under 60% was Paul Bixler in 1946 (55.6) - coaches since 1951 with winning % are:

  • Wes Fesler - 60.1%
  • Woody Hays - 76.1%
  • Earle Bruce - 75.5%
  • John Cooper - 71.5%
  • Jim Tressel - 81.0%
  • Urban Meyer - 90.1%
  • Ryan Day - 89.2%

literally 5 dudes in a row elected to the college HOF, plus Meyer (who will be eventually) + Ryan Day

Fickell was the interim in 2011 and went 6-7.

there is having a good hiring process...which they clearly have...but there is also being lucky not to hire a single dud in that entire 75 year timeline is incredible.

Ha! I was gonna send that gif slightly modified for the exact post this morning. 

You taking requests? I'd like to see Sark on that Judge Judy gif where she's tapping her watch imploring people to hurry up. Ok thanks

Just simply ignore reports. 
 

Quinn has had the same amount of time to learn the offense this year as Casey/Card did last year. Unless you believe Casey/Card just have some uncanny playbook learning ability over Ewers, you shouldn’t be worried. 
 

Now I’m sure that Sarks entire playbook is more complex than what we saw last year, but you run the plays your QB has down, and expand on that once you feel they can handle it. So if we initially have to deal with a restricted playbook at first….. so be it. Give me the playbook ran last year, but with a more talented arm and better weapons.

Didn’t LHN broadcast scrimmages/summer workouts in the past? Too bad they don’t do that anymore 

They definitely should. . What’s the use of having your own network and and not doing that

They also told their noodle armed QB who was a locker room cancer to get as far away from the program as possible and started a real QB (sounds awfully familiar). Did that contribute do them winning the Big 12? Or was the 10 game turnaround all due to 2 offensive lineman?

The 2 OL. One worth 6 games the other worth 4.

This coaching staff and previous staffs have allowed only a 15-20 minute viewing window for media (including stretching and some position group work), then they rush them the fuck off the field. They aren’t going to allow practices and scrimmages shown on a widely available network so opponents can view and take notes. Shit, that brief window was even yanked early this week following the Chip piece on Hall/Billingsley.

And what later became of that tow truck driver?
 

He started fucking underaged boys, then became a shaggy poster, and proceeded to go on a spree of throwing rocks through car windshields off overpasses and the upper deck of I-35. How do you live with all that in your conscience, asshole?

Yeah except he wasn't a tow truck driver, he ran a fatwa against tow trucks and always tried to make their life hard.

Bohanon was better than Brewer, but still pretty average. They converted a backup LB to RB who proceeded to rush for 1600 yards behind their new-look O-line.

Why the fuck is Banks ahead of Merril? Just because of some high school tape and his recruiting ranking? Complete bull shit move. 

My question is why the hell did it take so long?  It’s been one got damn week?!??    I hope Sark didn’t do irreparable damage to their relationship.   A lot can happen in one got damn week!!!

They had coaches that helped their team improve week to week. Not get worse every game.

Of course it just wasn't the 2 o-linemen. But they helped. They helped very much. Imagine if Texas had signed those 2 guys. We'd be in the mix this season to win the Big 12.

per usual, you make it sound way different than it actually is.

Abram Smith was recruited as a RB out of high school. Don't even think he played defense in high school. At Baylor, he was a RB as a true freshman (got hurt and took an RS), was a RB as a RS Freshman, was a RB as a RS Sophomore, switched to LB as a RS Junior due to injuries at the position for Baylor, then shifted back to RB as a RS Senior.

in 2021 they also changed Offensive Coordinator from Larry Fedora to Jeff Grimes and their OL Coach from Joe Wickline to Eric Matos (who came with Grimes)

it isn't like they pulled some rando LB out of their depth chart, made him a RB and it was plug and play from there - they changed scheme, OC and OL Coach and switched a guy who has been a RB his entire life who played 1 season at LB back to his natural position.
