    What about the parking? They expect every student to take a scooter or Uber to campus?

    Most logical choices that Kirby can't block are OU & USC, with some thoughts to UCLA & Oregon

    I'm a little late so hopefully people have climbed back off the ledge and decided to settle down. Saying "this is on the coaches" because there's a possibility that two first-year QBs want more playing time behind a sophomore and might be considering going elsewhere is kind of ridiculous given the climate in the NCAAs right now.

    Like it or not, QB recruiting has turned into a donut proposition int he past few years. I am old enough to remember when you used to see a QB leave and be replaced by a senior or junior who waited his turn. That's not happening much anymore, and sadly the ones most likely to jump are the ones that you will watch somewhere else and think "MAN he would have been good here."

    If we keep one of the two frosh QBs, I'll be pretty happy, and even mildly surprised. The pattern now is recruit, bring in a QB, and if he's good enough to grab the job early, he does. If you're fortunate and doing a good job of recruiting down the line, you time it so when that guy is a junior or senior, you're bringing in a couple of guys who can step in quickly, because odds are you're going to have a gap between your starter and the backups.

    We're fortunate enough to have a pretty good logjam, and chances are that logjam is going to clear up some in the next year. But we also have two guys that are a year and two years away that people are hyping just as much as the guys who may (or may not) be leaving.

    You can't keep everyone, and it's not the end of the world if you don't. But you can't watch a weekend of college football and think that somehow this problem is unique to Texas or that our coaches have "dropped the ball" because apparently some young guys may not want to wait three years to start.

    Man, that guy's nicer than I am. If my name were Gardner and people had been calling me "Gardere" all season, I would have spoken up. But it's in the record books now, so he's just going to have to change his name.

    Peter doesn't care what you call him as long as those royalty checks from reruns of "Friday Night Lights" keep rolling in.

    Looks like they will have to shoe-horn that thing into that space.

    But facility of < 10,000 and a parking garage next door, parking won't be as big a problem as < 101,000 on game day at DKR.
