    Practice starts tomorrow and the spring game is April 21st. I can't wait for the reports to come in. The thing that interests me is Herb Hand coming in. There will be other development's of course. Looking forward

    If only scientists could find a way to capture, harness and convert to energy, all of the sunshine being pumped by college football fans on message boards before the spring game each year, a sunshine pumping event only eclipsed by the same fans before the fall game.

    I'm always interested in the OL/DL that have a couple years in the weight room under their belt and the early enroll freshmen. Those are the reports I most look forward to.

    I appreciate you saying that Belldozer. But my attitude is why not get excited it's only fb. And let me tell you that for me this attitude has helped me get through these last 8 years.

    It will be interesting to watch the skill position players this spring. For the first time they will have the same coaches they had last year and hopefully some of them will finally live up to their potential. I'm sure they know that there will be freshman coming in to take their jobs and maybe that kind of competition will raise their game. As for the defense I don't there's anyway they won't be better this year.

    It will come down to improving coaching, OL, DL and QB. I have a lot of confidence in Herman's coaching and organizational skills.

    At least you can admit the error of your ways. If you can get the rest of your generation on board with that then we may have a chance going forward

    I placed a call to the SID and am waiting for a call back. I know there's an open policy in place but I don't want to be "that guy".

    Politics? Who is discussing politics LOL? I work with some young generation folks that we've hired straight out of college. From what I've witnessed about their work ethic and general thought processes, it has me disturbed. That's without even getting into any political discussion. I'm just messing with you as I'm sure you're a hard working individual.

    if Beck is still going to be the main play caller we’re probably in for more struggles on offense. The sooner Herman takes more control of the offense the better of the program will be.

    Stop dissing millennials. It's the older generations that are responsible for their environment. Don't get me started on all the crap that has been dumped on gen x and millennials.

    Personnel was a much bigger issue last year than play calling.

    Personnel was an issue and appears to be better this year, but let’s not kid ourselves the play calling was awful.

    Agree play calling was suspect but I believe TH will feel this Spring out and see what Beck is able to do with the offense. I suspect another year in we should see some progress but until we see it in action we won't really know for sure.

    I get the idea that the play calling is going to be a blend of Herman and Hand.

    Just wondering with the Texas offensive line last year what plays you would have called that would have worked?
