    If those numbers are legit, then that's pretty impressive. I'm usually a bit skeptical when I see a 40 time reported under 4.5, especially on a guy who is not real small and lightweight.

    The misperception of commitment...maybe that action should be 'conditional commitment'

    Ii would say he is very lithe yet strong. Pretty sure all times are track times since he has participated.

    No video of him tackling, but I do like him with Bijan, Hullaby, Jordan in the RB room. But LB is more lucrative and a longer career in the NFL.

    While I generally agree with your assessment, and rarely believe 40 times, I have a choir for you shouting

    I think I remember hearing somewhere that Joe Don Looney was a creep, and his mere presence kills the grass. :smile1:

    You realize the he came to Texas on a track scholarship and then transferred to OU. Head case? Absolutely, but he only hurt himself.* Tremendous athlete and a great punter.

    *The two drunks he threw through the plate glass windows at the 19th Street Toddle House don't count because they were picking on a crippled guy in there.

    Thank you for the correction. The names start flowing together for me in the big recruiting soup bowl.

    Read his biography some time. He was certainly an undisciplined youth, but became much more reflective later in life. Do not we all?

    Boy, that is the ultimate disrespect. Not Aglet SEC good enough?

    Wish this poor kid luck. Got to believe in yourself first, "mentors" last.

    Collins is the big fish here, though.

    Orlando knows offense is gonna have to score 50 plus to have a chance, so he better help Herman out. :yes:

    I met Joe Don in Fort Worth after he was out of football. Still young and built like Atlas. He was walking his dog, a giant white dog.

    He was as nice as could be. Friendly, polite, and did not "high time" us at all. I wish life would have turned out better for him.

    Looks like a Qb and not a LB to me. Our QB room is going to be freaking impressive... Until half of them enter the transfer portal.

    This is such a terrible year for defensive linemen and corners. I still have the same rankings from the beginning of the season.

    1. Collins is the must have, he is elite and much much better than his rankings.

    2. Broughton - He is a 3i DT and I would have him #1 if we would switch to a 4-3 defense.

    After than there isn't much to talk about. Princely U-D-Man most years would have been a 2nd tier player, but because things are so thin this year he is the 3rd best dlinemen in this state.

    If we switched to the guy that is the 2nd key is Prince Dorbah, he becomes our biggest defensive recruit as he would probably become a WDE and be the guy that racks up the big numbers.

    TH is going to own this one. You cant continually have one of the worst defenses in the NCAA and year over year exceed the worst defense in UT and expect defensive kids to want to come here. Again, imagine if we only had a middle of the pack defense. Would we have won either game we lost this year? How about last year?

    Yeah, it will be interesting to see how long Herman rides with Orlando.

    OU may have won the Natty last year with a good defense as great as their offense was. They may win it this year now that they ditched that 3-3-5 and put a real defense on the field. Texas blew so many chances to win conference crowns with East/West offense, and now the 3-3-5 defense will hold us back.....

    More toxic than interesting, I would say. Kind of like saying, "It will be interesting to see how long this diarrhea lasts."

    I know it's just bad timing but this post was right before OU's "real defense" gave up 48 in Manhattan.

    Did you watch the game ? KSU got great field position due to turnovers and poor punts, etc...against a very good physical offense. Wait until this KSU team gets a hold of our Horns.
