Or maybe the 7 coaches got fired because they failed at their jobs and did not develop the talent that was recruited. Texas was out coached in quite a few of the losses over the last few years.
Sam will be ready to leave after this season.I continued to be baffled by the overwhelming belief on this bored that there is a slim to no chance of Sam returning season next season. Wonder how that opinion will be reflected upon him having a bad game....and by "bad" game I mean for all the reasons that he's not NFL ready.
His senior year stats were also impacted by a pretty horrible attitude all season, which included him fighting with teammates on the field in his final game in a Texas uniform.Roy didn’t play During the spread offense days like Ship, Dev and Cosby. His senior year stats were impacted by VY in the early part of his career still becoming a passer.
The funny thing is she's not even in my top 1,000.I knew if I mentioned Miley in my B/S recommendations it would find its way into your 10 Thoughts thread...
You have a weakness...
Nice write up this week. One thing is I cannot remember a time where there were this many sports going on at once. I want to watch some hockey...not happening. Even the US Opens (golf and tennis) take a back seat to NBA hoops and football for me. Baseball is lucky if I even get to a game a week and there are teams clinching playoffs. Too bad we cant go to Vegas and watch 20 screens and bet all weekend.
Cornhole was all I could watch just a few weeks ago and now look at where we are today.
and next year will be his third.
We've lost in so many bat-shit crazy ways over the year that the end of the game felt somewhat normal. It was the reverse Leon Lett game.It sure was nice to be on the winning end of a game like that with the Cowboys. All too often the Cowboys and their fan base have always been on the receiving end of the kick to the nuts.
It has mostly gone un-talked about through 2 pages.Haven't read any replys but just have to shout THIS OL SITUATION IS BULLSHIT!!!!
and I kinda like Herb Hand. Met him, super nice guy. Very likeable. My Auburn friends said he sucked at development but they would truly say that about anyone that left their program for a lateral move.
Luckily, we're not the players.I don’t like all this 9-1 talk. If this bunch loses the 1-0 mentality, they‘re capable of crapping the bed at the worst possible time. They’ve been so inconsistent for so long, eating that cheese would be the worst thing they could do. They need to play with a chip in every game. Hopefully the new coaches and the Sr. QB will keep that sharp edge and not let entitlement and complacency set in. This program doesn’t have the star power and depth to overcome it, even against our weak ass conference.
Yes, teams around the Big 12 will play better and Texas will always catch its opponent's best shot, but my eyeballs right now are telling me that if Texas plays to the standards it can reach instead of playing down to the other team's mediocre standards, it should win nine out of 10 games this season. Period.
I think there are fewer this year. Much fewer.Seems like we say that pretty much every year. Unfortunately, there's that word "if." And unfortunately, against even UTEP, this team showed a couple of possible fatal flaws. Inability to establish a legit running game, and inability to get to the passer. We'll see. Yes, it appears the Big 12 sux, but there's no lack of land mines.
One added element to the discussion of the likes of B.J. Foster, Josh Moore and a host of others receiving second chances without harsh strings attached to them from Tom Herman is that the Longhorns potentially come out of the situation with a host of players feeling like they owe their head coach a solid.
I should have worded that better. Success and correct call-out.I don't like comparing Foster's and Moore's respective situations. One was a misdemeanor gun charge. The other was a player quitting on the team. FWIW, Moore's no "harsh strings" did include having to sit out a season. Sure, it was technically a redshirt, but clearly he's not a guy that would have to sit had the issue not come up. Foster, however, can go home in the middle of a game and still travel the next game. That seems odd. Sh*t, Cook put himself in the portal in the OFFSEASON only to return with Mense talking about how he will start at the bottom of the depth chart. Seems oddly contradictory
... DeShon Elliott is a better NFL player than he was a college player. I gotta be honest ... I wasn't sure he'd make it. Good for him.
I have a boatload of respect for DeShon's junior season. I just thought he was raw in coverage and would get exposed in that area at the next level.This board has a bit of an odd lack of respect for what type of player Elliott was in '17. Sh*t, if you weren't sure Elliott wouldn't make then hate to think what your thoughts on Sterns making the NFL given he's shown yet to even come close to playing like Elliott did in '17. But unfortunately for Elliott, being tagged a "Charlie guy" is a tough one to shake.
... Congrats to Bryson DeChambeau, but I really just didn't find myself caring much about the US Open this weekend. I blame most of it on being able to watch the golf on Thursday or Friday without Peacock.
I looked, but I couldn't find it.You always find an excuse not to be interested in golf. Peacock had the last 2 hours of coverage on thursday. Meanwhile, there was 21 hours of GC/NBC coverage combined both days.
Honestly, it's a no-brainer for me.

I am interested in golf. It was just hard to be interested this weekend. I wish it had been played on the west coast because it seemed like they started so damn early on Thursday and Friday.
Not having Phil or Tiger make the cut and almost do drama all weekend had an impact.
Mike Adams is 3rd career total yardage. 7th career total receptions. 6th career TDs. Averaged 17 yds/catch which is a full yard more than Roy.
Meanwhile, McGarity is 13th career yds. 21st career total receptions. 12th career TDs.
Kwame is 10th career yds. 9th career total receptions. 21st career TDs.
indeed, one must have no brain to put those 2 guys ahead of Mike Adams.
This board loved Elliot in '17. It was after he failed to even show up to the bowl game then later went scorched earth on the program that you started seeing people diminishing what he had done and calling it a fluke season.This board has a bit of an odd lack of respect for what type of player Elliott was in '17.

I mean, I get why that would irk people. I am not a fan of sitting out bowl games in the first place. In the end, it's all just message board fodder anyway.That's my point. Because of rustled jimmies, people can't appreciate how he played in '17. FWIW, does it really matter that he didn't show up for the bowl game?
Adams definitely had a better career than McGarity, but I felt like McGarity's best season was better than Adams' best season.
That being said, I've undervalued Adams' career upon a little retrospect. Case can definitely be made I have him too low.
