Please don't take this wrong, but you're an idiot.
Where. am I wrong? There are players who opted out of the season simply to prepare for the NFL draft, guys skip bowl games now if they aren’t in the playoffs, freshman and sophomores enter the portal after one season if they aren’t starting now. Sometimes even mid season. Coaches(especially at small schools) recruit players promising to guide them through there careers knowing full well they will probably be on to a bigger job a year or two later. I’m not knocking that at all everyone has to do what’s best for them, but let’s not kid ourselves individual interest is above the team in college sports these days. Too much money on the like individually for it not to be.

I think in the very near future you are going to see players who are rated first or 2nd round draft picks leave the team as soon as they are out of playoff consideration.

remember when we had the major Applewhite/Chris Simms QB controversy? That wouldn’t happen today. One of them would of transfered. College football players are basically hired guns these days. The great coaches in college football and basketball are just able to mesh the individual goals with the overall objective.

College sports isn’t about the “team”. Not anymore. Most of these guys show up to college with a goal of getting to the NFL as soon as possible. Even the ones that don’t have a chance think they are going. If a freshman gets beat out in camp he’s transferring, if a player doesn’t get his way he’s transferring. Unless your a coach at a hand full of programs you have your eye on the next job. The coaches that win understand how to combine individual interest with the goals the team has. That’s what you have to do these days.

And for the recored no I don’t care if first graders do the pledge. I have much more important things to worry about day to day and I sure as hell hope you do too
Is that you Ryan_Sublett?

More mindless dribble from you.

Since you want to attack me though. I’ll just point out that the reason I got labeled a Charlie Strong lover by you and others was because I was one of the few(maybe the only) who said I’d rather keep Charlie if Herman was the best option. The reason was because I wasn’t convinced that hiring someone with basically the same resume as Charlie Strong was the answer. Some of you decided to turn that in to “you just love Charlie. 4 years later looks like I was correct we’re basically in the same spot. Actually we’re worse. The conference isn’t near as good as it was several years ago, and our talent is probably better especially at QB. So no “I didn’t love Charlie” just didn’t see hiring a Charlie clone as the answer. It was obvious and clear Herman was going to be the guy.

Couldn't cut it in the Mexican Leagues
was thinking this this summer when all of that was going down-- texas and oklahoma state were noisy; oklahoma was silent. it's about culture. we'll see how it plays out for the ok schools
Heard about one kid at OkSt. And the tshirt. And I guess Gundy had an “apology?”

But I missed where Gundy backed down, or allowed this to become a distraction.

"And for the recored no I don’t care if first graders do the pledge. I have much more important things to worry about day to day and I sure as hell hope you do too"

I am more than a little worried about that if it is so.

I think the old boys that have been saying we are "just one generation away from losing this country" may know what they are talking about. The sorry lefties have taken over our Education Systems.

I have talked to several new History Teachers at a local High School I have been familiar with. As each new History Teacher showed up, I walked into their Classroom before their first class and said this: " Tell them who WE WERE so they will know WHO THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. The commies know who THEY are...and they know people who KNOW WHO THEY ARE are harder to control."

I am just a 79 year old High School educated man who knew "a few good men" who damn sure knew who they were - who have gone silent in our graveyards...and no one is stepping up to relieve them. I am usually the only one I hear touting WHO THEY WERE.

I think we all need to be worried about little 1st Graders not being taught WHO THEY ARE - a lot.
With a tip of my old decades old Longhorns cap to Sam Ehlinger, I'm hanging up UT.

Have a nice rest of it.
