re: Of the top-100 recruits of '22 - Windy City on 1/21/21 at 4:06 pm
So I finally had the time to look through that list. The State of Texas had 28 kids make All-American throughout the 1990s. Only 13 of them stayed in state. Amazingly, 8 of the 15 who went out of state signed with Notre Dame. Pretty crazy. Miami, USC, and FSU were the other popular spots. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Show you how time is passing. The first big bowl game my Dad took me too was the Cotton Bowl in the early 90s when A&M narrowly lost to Notre Dame. Bobby Taylor was a Texas kid playing for Notre Dame who had a huge game that day. His son is now a senior in high school and a highly ranked DB recr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I don't remember it being all that different back in the 80s and 90s. There was no 247 or Rivals then . . just the Dallas Morning News and a few indie folks like Tom Lemming. Most of the top tier talent in Texas was scooped up by out of state programs based on program momentum. Notre Dame would...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Another Bama coach to Texas - Windy City on 1/14/21 at 3:37 pm
I think the biggest question is how well Sark can replicate Bama style success outside the Saban shadow. Herman, for all the grief has received, consistently stacked up highly rated recruiting classes. Sark is supposedly an ace recruiter but that has not been the problem in Austin.

Honorable mention is Trevor Knight. He starts as a redshirt freshman at OU and leads them to a Sugar Bowl victory over 'Bama while throwing for 4 TDs. He subsequently gets benched. He transfers to A&M and does not do much. He finishes his career losing to K-State in the Texas Bowl despite th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The article takes aim at Ohio State and backs into how most NFL QBs fail and there really isnt such thing as a true QB factory program in college.

re: Who wins a title first, Georgia or A&M? - Windy City on 1/7/21 at 9:58 am
I think the "what about A&M . . . " stance distracts from the core point that Kirby has world beating talent and still loses the random game or ekes out wins over lesser squads. That is interesting to me. With the right schemes and coordinators he could be right there with Clemson, Bama, and OS...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
