Metcalf good to see you again lol. Did you hear that there has been a nasty twitter war between Sam Ehlinger and Dylan Haines? True story and I have no doubt on whose side you would be on 😂.

I've worked with Dylan on a few Real Estate transactions. Well at least I've represented clients interested in two of his listings. Very professional as a Realtor. I'd kill for his connections.

I'm sure Dylan is a good guy. But Metcalf has some strong opinions about Dylan and that's putting it mildly. Every now and then I joke with him about it. I know that Dylan is from Fort Worth is that where you guys live?

For you guys speculating about Quinn Ewers changing his mind. I don't know if this will matter but there is this to consider. This week another TX kid who was a 4* 2022 commit to tOSU has decommitted to TX. So who knows maybe this kid will have another change of heart.

Well it appears that were going to lose out on LJ Johnson. Even a couple of our guys are saying it's over. I guess you can this is typical of the longhorn class of '21.

Ok AL? I can accept.
Ok OK I can accept that as well.

But a&m? The F***ing cow college? College Station over Austin? Spend the next few years with nothing to do but go to the Dixie Chicken drink beer and play dominoes? Say what you want about our physical leasure majors poultry science is nothing to wrote home about.

But this happened to OK as well. OK has had great success in offensive fb. In the last few years they've sent players to the NFL at just about every position. I guess the lure of playing in the SEC was to strong this year.

I mean losing Cam Wheaton to AL is one thing but they lost Bryce Foster to the cow college as well and wth at least Norman, OK has campus corner which beats the he** out of Dixie Chicken. Were going to have to step it up in the xfr portal and the LSU kid is a good start.

Lets hope its different next year.

I think the lure of dixie chicken, chugging a big mug of beer to get to their senior ring is really the main reason some go to m&a. That and the sheep.

Lets face it, aggys have a superior offensive line and will feature him in the running game while Texas will not feature him or any back due to rotation. He has a shot at starting at aggy, no so here.

They lost 3 of 5 starters this year on their line.

Hopefully this will change with the hiring of Flood to coach the O line. Sark does feature running backs and doesn't do the time share stuff like Herman. Sark has had a 1000+ yard rusher in every offense he has coordinated. This will hurt and help with some recruits. Some recruits want to go to a system where they don't take the full load every week. There is belief that some backs get run down during college and could hurt their draft stock. Like buying a used car, it's better to get one with low mileage. Others want to get a bunch of carries and stats, so it will come down to player preference and how well the staff sells their vision for each player. Who knows which type LJ is.

Personal choice, Austin is believed to be among the most popular cities in America. I for one would not live there, or any other large city.

Dude let me tell you something. Back in the day my brothers and I would hang out on 6th the night before the game. We saw a lot of kids from Baylor and TT when we played them. And guess what we saw a lot of a&m kids as well. Truth

No we are both in Austin. He had a listing in Bastrop and another in Lago Vista that I had clients who offered on.

Suchomel from Orangebloods is reporting that RB Johnson will visit Texas this week. It’s always good to get the last visit.

Dont forget that the most Revered aggy of the modern age got in trouble because all he wanted to do was hang out in Austin....

Interesting tidbit, now that Washington is coming to Texas They also might trigger a transfer of Saville Smalls. This was a rumor on another board, I haven't seen anything about this with legs but that would be a heck of a pull.

Pete Kwiatkowski has been a Pacific Northwest guy his whole life. He has a 15 year association with Chris Petersen. At WA he sent at least 10 players to the which is a lot better than what we've done in the same time frame. He's embarking on new journey to southern fried FB. I know fb is intense in Seattle, WA but he's going to find out they turn up the heat a few notches in TX.

He's had a successful run but OK will have a better offense than anything he saw in the Pac XII. Will his schemes work in the Big XII? Can he make the necessary adjustments and by that I mean OK. He coached lbs at WA I'm looking forward to what he thinks of Demarvion Overshown? Look forward to that collaboration.

Welcome to TX Pete Kwiatkowski and

Well that's a relief and 24/7 has not listed him as hard commit. Man we've got to get it done with this guy.

I think I heard today that over his tenure at Washington he had given up 35 points or more 5 times. In the same time frame, Texas has given up 35 points 22 times.

That’s encouraging although there aren’t great offenses in the pac 12. But he clearly has the track recored for this job. On paper it looks like Sark did what he needed to do and that was mail his DC hire.

Being in CA, I follow the Pac12 (when ever they don’t PVSSY out of a season) and the Husky defenses are very tough. His D lines are massive - think Danny Shelton. He pulled a lot of big Polynesian players to WA. His recruiting strategy should be interesting as I don’t see him getting the Poly D lineman here. His defenses are also known for big hard hitting safeties.
Overall, I like the hire.

Ya. We don't have fresh enough sea food to get the Polynesian players here.

Y'all laugh. But it's true. Them dudes love pork and fresh fish. We got the pork. But we don't have the fresh fish.

I follow WA also. He's produced NFL talent at every position. And I'm taking talking about #1 draft picks, starters, AA's, pro bowl players, you name it.

2016 Peach bowl 1st round of college football playoffs - His defense held the Bama offense to 17 pts. That was the offense with Lane Kiffin as OC. At the time Sark was an analyst for them.

Are you trying to tell me that the catch of the day at Red Lobster wasn't actually caught that day?

Now wait a minute. Junior Angilou is a big ol' Polynesian boy from Utah. And they ain't known for having a lot of fresh fish 😂 And don't worry about Hawaii being to far away. I mean Tua went to AL.

Uh huh. And how much $$$$ did it cost to haul all that "fish" to Tuscaloosa?

Also WA and OR have tapped into the well of Polynesian talent that's here out west. Believe it isn't just big ol beefy lineman. And not just Tua how about Marcus Marriota? If coach Sarkisian can tap into that well of talent and bring some of it to Austin we'll better off for it.
