    Here is "The Stampede" on that --

    A source near Tommy Brockermeyer and James Brockermeyer told me that the season wasn't exactly helpful for their recruitment with Texas. Their brother Luke being on the team can be both positive and negative for Texas, and in times of turmoil, it certainly turned into a negative. Clemson and Alabama loom large in these recruitments, and LSU came on strong near the end of the year. In fact, I was told by sources near the Brockermeyers and on the LSU side that the Tigers made a huge impression on them. If they were making a decision today, I wouldn’t expect it to be the Longhorns.

    If we turn things around next year and beat LSU things can swing back in our favor.

    Without Burrow I like our chances.

    Let's see who ends up as DC first. The LSU back-up didn't look like much of a drop-off (agreed it was against aggy), plus he will have had a year in the system.

    Some CBs have been coming in for Donovan Jackson to tOSU
    I hate how they are allowed to keep cherry-picking Texas

    tOSU, Clemson, are going to start killing us next year, this includes Bama and LSU who are already killing us. We need to win to fix this. Beat LSU and we are off, beat blowu and we have something to sell these recruits.

    I don't know if it'll take several years of 9-10 wins before recruits look at us like the place to be. Texas should always keep trying but until we get Ohio's/Alabama's/Florida's/etc best players coming to Texas I think we must lack the hype necessary. I guess it's not about how much money Texas has, it's about solidarity and commitment to football. And winning football. I'm befuddled but hope Texas finds the formula to start bringing the 5s and 4s here in droves (and they don't transfer or incur some sort of injury)….

    Some people don’t realize having losses are much more than just getting a notch on your record in the last column. We have a lot riding on each game from our recruits stand point. So frustrating after last season seeing the recruits falling in line because of what we had going on with the direction of our program to what is happening now. We got to turn this around and it starts with an Alamo Bowl victory.

    Well I think people living in Texarkana are kind of confused which state they belong to.

    It's a long time til anyone signs, plenty of time to turn things around. Any commitment right now is a soft commitment.

    yes but the #1 guy went back to USC and the number two guy has had surgeries for a sports hernia...so without those 2, where does that class rank?

    And injuries and transfers happen at no other school?

    Yes, but in our case, you can't keep losing your top guys to injury/etc and compete with the big boys. Alabama loses their best lb, it hurts but there's a ton of 4s and 5s on defense to pick up that slack. At Texas, the top guys go down, there needs to be enough to back that up with solid players. Texas isn't #3 (really) in 2019.
