How did the BBQ adventure go by the way?
I did Pinkertons and Corkscrew on back to back days.

I thought the pork ribs at Pinkertons stole the show. The brisket and sausage were great, but the ribs were special. If I had gone back the next day, I might have just gone all-in on the ribs.

On the other hand, didn't really love the ribs at Corkscrew, but I thought the jalapena sausage was one of the best I've ever had. I wanted more. Brisket was a 9.5 out of 10.

Did you start the Luka thread?
Nope, but that kid hasn't done much since his freshman year and he ain't gonna hold up to the beating he's gonna get in the NFL. I love who he could be, but I don't see him lasting, JMO. I knew he would get drafted, but. the 1st and 2nd round grades he got were too high IMO.

In the next 2 NFL drafts, a total of 12 Texas players get drafted....doesn't matter how many each year, and it could include eligible juniors leaving in 2023....

(Sell) That number feels a little too high for me.

No way that many get drafted who originally signed with Texas. But it wouldn't surprise me if Sark brought in several one-year transfers for 2022 season that will be drafted in some round. So it could happen.

Sell) I think there are a lot of questions that could be asked of the report that was released and why the school refused to hire an independent, outsourced committee to handle the research and the overall task. I'm not sure I would point the finger at a professor that had perhaps the most impossible task of anyone associated with the project if we're keeping it 100.
Absurd. The whole TEOT nonsense was always a woke-invented, fake news affair by people who wanted to be their own hero. Read The True Believer.

Hats off to the young dude with his spunky, confident, determined mating dance.

This seemingly gets said every year.
Well, we haven't exactly gotten elite coaching in any of those years. Texas didn't lose to OU and ISU in close games that came down to the last possessions because those teams had a definitive edge in talent. Hopefully, this crew can make a difference.

If we don't have 12 draft picks over the next two drafts it probably means Sarkisian isn't doing his job.

I view both the teams and games from last year different than most, I suppose.

Forget overthrowing Oklahoma. How many elite players does Texas need to beat TCU, Oklahoma State, and Iowa State consistently?
That's some cold sh*t, right there... comin' up in here with all that truth... you should be ashamed of yourself...

Ironically, I'm getting there with my passion for the team.
2011 against the Giants- the Dez catch that wasn't. That was the play that broke me. We're Al Davis'd until we're not.

Here's a late B/S submission:
Texas wins the Big 12 Championship in 2018 with the roster we had, if Sark's coaching staff coached that team all year long.

So do we believe the kid’s story to his mom that it was a staring contest and he was trying to distract her? She is pretty engaged other than when the adult yells something to interrupt in the beginning.

@Ketchum , you give CDC credit as nothing more than a fundraiser? TBD on how their replacements work out, but he gets credit on Tom and Shaka moving on. And favorable reviews on their successors.

Saban completely dominated recruiting, pretty much from the jump, at both LSU and Bama. We all know what needs to happen for UT on the recruiting front. And the quality of portal transfers is going to need to go way up as well. I'm not expecting UT to make the Big 12 championship game in 2021 so the next class is critical.
Texas will win The 12 championship

Hey, now that was a well written piece, sir ... interesting, entertaining, educational even, and kept my attention all the way through. Was kinda disappointed when it ended. Good job Geoff and thank you. 🙃

There's a lesson to be learned here about not being so married to your original plans when the time calls for you to be flexible.

That's a life truism no matter what your profession is.

Per the Falcons and Matt Ryan, their draft is likely a combination of QBs available, belief that Ryan still has his fastball, freak Pitts and a new HC, former Titan OC Arthur Smith.

Although about 1/3rd of Falcons fans wanted a 1st round QB, ATL must believe the best play is to build on status quo, address QB later.

Believing in hopeless dreams is part of being an NFL fan, I suppose. ;)
